Gina Wears White: From Bridesmaid to Bride
by: Janis Elizabeth
I called home during the middle of my honeymoon to make sure that everyone was all right. My new husband understood this and sat and read while I made the call. Mom answered and we chatted for a few minutes. She then mentioned that my brother Gene, or rather my new little sister Gina, seemed like a different person since the wedding. She said that with Gina's presence openly acknowledged Gene had seemed to become more self-confident and self-assured. Taking me at my word, Gina had been visiting my room regularly and wearing my lingerie and clothes. Mom was quite happy to see Gina around the house in a nice dress or a skirt and blouse. She was glad that Gina didn't have to try and sneak around with her desires for feminine things. She said that Gina was quite happy also. Mom told me how peacefully Gina slept the night of the wedding. When she went in to see if Gina was all right, she found my little sister in a deep and gentle sleep with an angelic smile on her face, wearing my pink satin baby doll nightgown and my pink satin sleep bonnet. Mom also said that she had gotten a second shower cap, so that Gina would have one of her own. She then handed the phone to Gina, so that I could talk with my little sister.
"Hi Sharon," she said. "Are you enjoying yourself? How is everything going on your honeymoon?" I said that I would tell her all about it when I returned home. In the meantime, my little sister would just have to use her imagination. I asked her what she was wearing at the moment. She replied, "I am wearing some of your black satin lingerie, black stockings, your black satin knee-length dress with short sleeves and your two-inch black patent heels." I told her that it sounds like she was dressed very nicely. Gina told me how nice all of these clothes felt. Next, I asked her if she liked having her own shower cap. She assured me that she liked going into the shower and finding her own pink shower cap hanging on the rack next to Mom's rather than have to sneak into the shower wearing Mom's cap.
Gina told me about wearing the baby doll nightgown and the hair bonnet. "You know, Sharon," she said, "I had the most pleasant dreams that evening about silks and satins and me." I asked her if she had found the blue satin teddy. "Oh yes," she replied. "I love the sensuous feel that I experience whenever I wear it. I've already worn it three times. Of course, I hand wash it out and let it dry overnight. Thank you for allowing me to openly enjoy all of the clothes in your room." I told her that is what sisters are for. I also said that, after I get home, the first thing we are doing is taking her shopping for clothes and makeup of her own. From there, we would plan on when I would allow her to wear my wedding gown. Gina was so excited about this. "One final question, Gina, and then I have to go. Are you having any problems when you have to revert to being Gene?" Her reply indicated that it was difficult going from the soft and silky clothes to the plain, coarse and drab. Nevertheless, she was accepting it well whenever she had to become Gene. I told her that I would talk with her when I get home. "In the meantime, little sister, behave yourself and don't give Mom too difficult a time. Gina replied, "I won't, Sharon. I am looking forward to your return and us getting together as sisters. Good night." I bid her good night and pleasant dreams and then hung up.
We were back home the following Friday afternoon. After getting everything put away in our home, I called Gina. "Hi, little sister. How are you today," I asked? Gina replied that she thought that I would never get home. "Well, all things come to her that waits," I told Gina. She replied that waiting for me was one of the most difficult things she had ever done. I asked if she was ready to have a day shopping with me. "Sharon, I have been looking forward to shopping with you since you first mentioned it," she said. I told her that I would be there early tomorrow and that we would spend the entire day shopping. Gina was thrilled that our day together would be occurring so soon.
"Gina, so that you can be ready early tomorrow and experience the softness of the clothes, I want you to take your shower tonight just before you go to bed. In the medicine cabinet in the bathroom is a bottle of depilatory cream. Before you shower, I want you to use that cream all over your body. However, don't use it on your private parts. Wait for the required 20 minutes, for the cream to work. Then shower as you normally would. After you dry yourself, use the cream in the cabinet for sensitive skin. It will make you feel nice and smooth. Then dust yourself with the scented bath powder, put on a soft nightgown and get some sleep. Tomorrow morning, I will be there by 7:30 a.m. Find a white satin bra and panties set, a white garter belt and nude stockings. We'll find something for you to wear after I get there. Is that all right with you," I asked her? "Sharon, I will follow your instructions to the letter. I've already chosen your long red satin nightgown to sleep in tonight," Gina replied. I told her that I would see her tomorrow. Before Gina hung up, I asked to speak to Mom for a few minutes.
Mom and I chatted for a few minutes. I told her that Gina and I were going shopping tomorrow. I was also going to see if Mary was available to do Gina's hair and makeup the first thing tomorrow. Mom thought that having her hair done would be a nice treat for Gina. I asked Mom how everything was going with her. She replied that, if it was possible, when Gene was present, he seemed to be kinder and more considerate than he had ever been in the past. When Gina was present, Mom sensed that Gina was as happy as possible. She had talked constantly about going shopping with her sister and about being able to wear and be photographed in her sister's wedding gown. I told Mom that I was glad to hear that.
I said that I would be there by 7:30 and for her to make sure that Gina was awake. Mom assured me that Gina would be dressed, at least in her lingerie, and waiting. I thanked Mom for her understanding. "No, it is you that should be thanked, Sharon. You have made your little brother and your little sister come alive. I know Gina appreciates all that you are doing for her and so do I. It is my pleasure to have a second daughter, even if it is only for a few hours at a time. By the way, when are you going to dress Gina as a bride? I want to make sure that I am properly dressed as the mother of the bride again." I told Mom that it would probably be the following Saturday. She said that would be great.
After I said good-bye to Mom, I called Mary. As luck would have it, Mary was free until after 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning. I told her that I wanted to treat my little sister Gina to a hair coloring, shampoo and set, manicure and makeup. Mary remembered that I had said that Gina was my cousin and asked me about it. Also, she said that she didn't remember me talking about a sister. However, I had mentioned my younger brother Gene several times. After pledging Mary to secrecy, I told her about Gene and Gina. Mary was entranced that a young man would want to experience his softer, more sensitive side, especially in this manner. "Sharon, had you not told me about Gina, I would have never known or even suspected," Mary said. "When I did her hair and makeup last Saturday, I sensed a little nervousness, but I attributed that to her excitement at being in the wedding. Gina was a very passable girl and a very pretty bridesmaid."
Mary said that she would be happy to be of service to my little sister and that her secret was safe. I then asked her if she would be available the following Saturday, at Mom's, to do a bridal hairdo and makeup. "Are you getting married again Sharon? I thought that once would have been enough for you," Mary teased. I told her that I was letting Gina wear my wedding gown and veil. I wanted her to feel like a bride, including having her hair and makeup done and having pictures taken to commemorate the event. Mary again agreed to assist Gina. I thanked her and said that Gina and I would see her tomorrow. When I hung up, I thought about Gina and hoped she would enjoy all of the new experiences tomorrow.
Saturday morning seemed to come too early after my husband and I continued our honeymoon activities the night before. If I could have just stayed there this morning, maybe I would have felt rested. However, I had made a promise to Gina and I meant to keep that promise. A quick shower revived me. The scented bath powder helped to lighten my mood. I selected my white satin lingerie, a white satin, short-sleeve blouse, a black full skirt, nylons and two-inch heels. After dressing, doing my hair, makeup and jewelry, I put on a little perfume, kissed my husband and headed off to Mom's to get Gina.
Mom greeted me at the door, saying that Gina had been up for an hour already. She was wearing her satin bra, panties, garter belt, slip and nylons and was sitting in the kitchen having a muffin and a cup of tea. I went into the kitchen and gave Gina a hug. She looked up at me and smiled. I commented on how nice her bra looked with her breast forms in place. I told her that her shape was ideal for a fourteen-year old. She finished the last of her tea and we went to my old room to get her ready.
The first thing I handed her was a sanitary pad to put into her panties. She took it and positioned it properly, making sure that she tucked herself in well also. I smiled and commented about my little sister having already become a woman in that regard. I complimented her on her lingerie selection. Next I handed her a light blue, satin, short-sleeve blouse that Gina put on. A full navy skirt and 2-inch navy heels completed her outfit. I gave her a blue shoulder bag with some tissues and had her put her wallet, keys and a few extra pads in it. I told her to be discrete and to try to keep the pads hidden in her purse as much as possible, so that she didn't embarrass herself or anyone else. Gina said that she would be discrete.
Our first stop was the beauty salon. When Gina expressed her surprise at this stop, I told her that I wanted Mary to color and set her hair and do her makeup. Gina beamed and thanked me for being such a considerate sister. Mary greeted us as we entered the salon. While I sat in the front and waited, Gina followed Mary back to her styling station. Mary placed a pink shampoo cape around Gina's neck and then took her to the shampoo area. I watch as she washed and then conditioned Gina's hair. Gina seemed to be so relaxed. Mary then colored Gina's hair. The final color would be several shades lighter that Gina's current hair color. Once the color had taken and the excess rinsed out, Gina was moved to Mary's styling station with her hair wrapped in a towel. Mary quickly sectioned and rolled Gina's hair, securing each roller close to the scalp with a metal clip. When she was done, she covered Gina's rollers with a black hair triangle, tying it in the back to secure it. Gina was moved to a dryer while still wearing her shampoo cape.
While Gina's hair was drying, Mary rolled the manicure table up to do Gina's nails. After removing the old polish from last week, Mary carefully cleaned each cuticle. She then carefully applied several coats of bright pink polish to Gina's nails. The polish was such that, even when completely dry, her nails still had a wet look about them. Mary completed the manicure about the same time that the dryer turned off. After checking a roller to make sure that her hair was dry, Mary moved Gina back to her styling station.
Before doing Gina's hair, Mary did her makeover. Realizing that Gina was supposed to be a fourteen-year old girl, Mary did her makeup tastefully. The eye shadow and blush were understated but matched the glossy pink lipstick that Mary applied to Gina's lips. A slight touch of mascara to highlight Gina's lashes completed the makeover. Mary then took down the rollers and proceeded to style Gina's hair into a very feminine style becoming to a fourteen-year-old. When Mary turned Gina toward the mirror to gaze at the finished product, Gina was absolutely speechless. From where I sat, I would say that Mary had done a splendid job for Gina. Judging from Gina's reaction, she seemed to think so too.
As Mary and Gina approached the front, I complimented Gina on her appearance. I purchased some of the cosmetics that Mary had used, both for Gina's purse and Gina's dresser. Additionally, I included a bottle of nail polish remover. As I was paying the bill, Gina thanked Mary for the hairstyle, the manicure, and the makeover and for explaining how to properly apply her makeup. Gina then turned to me, smiled and gave me a big hug and said, "Sharon, thank you for this special treat. You have made me feel wonderful. You are too good to me, big sister." Mary stood and watched us with an amused smile. I told Gina that we were just beginning our day and that there was a lot more planned. As we left, I thanked Mary for her assistance and we exchanged knowing smiles. Gina floated, rather than walked out of the beauty salon. I don't believe she even felt or heard her heels hit the ground on any step.
We then went to the mall. Fortunately, my job paid well because I knew that I was going to spend a lot of money today on my little sister. Nevertheless, she was worth it. Since she had just come from the beauty parlor, I convinced Gina to have her photo taken at the mall studio. The photographer posed her in several different ways, both sitting and standing. Through computer imagery, she showed us what the completed pictures would look like. Since they all looked good and with Gina's approval, I got one large portrait of each shot for Mom, two each of a medium size for both Gina and myself and several wallet sized ones for each of us of each pose. The photographer said that we could pick them up on Wednesday. We thanked her and than left to resume shopping.
Gina and I went to an upscale women's store that was located in the center of the mall. There, I had her select several soft blouses, both print and solid in a variety of colors, matching skirts, both straight and full, all knee-length and several styles of dresses in various colors and fabrics. I also selected a nice all-weather coat for her to wear. Gina almost seemed overwhelmed while trying on all of these nice fashions.
Since it was now a little after noon, we first took all of our packages out to the car and then we came back in and had a salad and some iced tea at one of the eateries. All Gina could talk about was her morning of beauty and all of the nice clothes that she now had. I smiled at her and said that there was more to come, so just sit back and enjoy. She acted like a typical fourteen-year old girl on a shopping trip.
Our next stop was for shoes and stockings. Gina tried on different styles and heel heights. While she wanted to get the higher heels, I had to remind her that she was only fourteen and that the lower heels were more appropriate to a young lady her age. She reluctantly accepted my council and selected several pairs to match her new outfits. Additionally, we got her several pairs of stockings in various shades. I reminded her, that, while stockings were nice, sometimes a girl needs some pantyhose. Gina agreed, so we selected three pair in black, taupe and nude.
I kidded with Gina about one day buying her a bathing suit. However, I said, I wouldn't ruin today by subjecting her to that ordeal. Gina just smiled and said that she was willing to get one and that it didn't seem like an ordeal. "Trust me," I said, "buying a nice one-piece bathing suit can be very nerve-racking. Either the top fits and the bottom doesn't or the bottom fits and the top doesn't. We will save the joys of that experience for another day.
We then went into a fashionable lingerie store where I knew that Gina would be overwhelmed. I took the lead and suggested different style bras and panties. I reminder her that a girl can never have enough of either. She selected several lacy bras, all in satin, in different colors. She also selected matching satin panties. I added several utilitarian white bras and panties to the growing stack of lingerie. Slips, both full and ankle-length, also in satin, were added to the pile. Finally, I steered Gina towards the sleepwear. She selected four satin baby doll nightgowns in pink, black, light blue and mint green, four waltz length nightgowns in white, black, lilac and mint green and four long form-fitting nightgowns in white, red, black and royal blue. Just before we checked out, I steered Gina toward a rack of satin teddies. Gina almost couldn't contain herself when she saw the assortment of wonderful garments. She really had a hard time deciding on which ones she wanted. Finally, she was patriotic, selecting a red one, a white one and a blue one. After paying for our purchases we headed for home.
Gina had been excited about her day with her big sister. She was even more excited to show Mom all of the new clothes she had gotten. Mom suggested that Gina move all of her things, both her new clothes and her existing ones, in the spare bedroom, which Mom had decorated in a feminine style, complete with canopy bed and mirrored vanity. Mom even promised to get Gina some satin sheets so that she could experience more of the sensuous thrills that are associated with a woman. Gina was thrilled by all of this. I told Gina to think about what we would be doing next Saturday, which, I told her, would be her bridal day.
Before I left, Gina hugged me tight and said, "Sharon, you are the best big sister any girl could want. Thank you for everything. I am enjoying being your little sister. I can't wait to experience the ordeal of buying a women's bathing suit. Also, I really can't wait for next Saturday to look, to feel and to be a bride. I hope I will look one-tenth as good in your gown as you did." I told Gina not to hurry things, that Saturday would be here soon enough and that she would look like a beautiful bride. With that, I told her to enjoy her new things and that I would see her Saturday.
The week turned out to be a busy one, as I had several surprises planned for Gina's big day. First, I ordered a small wedding cake that would be delivered Saturday morning. Next were the flowers, including, bridal bouquet, Matron of Honor bouquet and corsage for the mother of the bride. These also were to be delivered on Saturday morning. I arranged for a professional photographer to be there Saturday morning in order to chronicle Gina's transformation into a beautiful bride.
There is one thing a bride must have and that is her bridal lingerie. I stopped at a bridal salon and got Gina her white satin garter belt, bra, panties, ankle-length slip and bridal stockings. Each piece had appliqued hearts, doves and wedding bells. Also, I was able to get my Matron of Honor gown and matching lingerie in royal blue satin. Fortunately, the gown fit right off of the rack and didn't need to be altered. The full skirt needed the requisite crinoline, so that was also purchased. Shoes for each of us that matched our gowns, with four-inch heels, were selected. Finally, I got Gina a white satin bridal negligee with a form fitting, ankle-length gown with spaghetti straps and lace over the bodice and hem and a sheer robe with short sleeves and a white satin ribbon closure.
Finally, I stopped and picked up Gina's portraits. I had each one framed except for the wallet sized ones. They looked as good when they were printed as they did when they were displayed on the computer. I had the sales associate put Mom's in one bag and Gina's in another.
I also talked to Mom and Gina twice during the week to see how they were bearing up. Mom said that Gina was so excited that she was going to make both of them a nervous-wreck before Saturday. Gina admitted to her nervousness but said, "Sharon, I know that I am getting to Mom. However, I just can't seem to help myself. I am so excited. Also, with everything that you are doing for me, I don't know what to say." I told Gina to just relax and, if necessary, breathe deeply several times until she felt herself calming down. She assured me that she would. I said that I would see her early Saturday.
Saturday morning dawned quite early. After putting on my royal blue satin lingerie, I carefully did my hair and makeup. I then slipped into a plain skirt and blouse, made sure that I had everything, including Gina's lingerie and then headed for Mom's. When I got to Mom's, Gina was still asleep. I saw that she was wearing her black satin form-fitting nightgown. I woke her and told her that there was a lot to do. She needed to take her bath, making sure that she also shaved closely. Gina took her robe with her and plodded toward the bath.
Mom already had done her hair and makeup and was again wearing her mother of the bride dress. I gave her the bridal lingerie for Gina to wear when she got out of her bath. I also reminded Mom that Gina needed to use a sanitary pad in her panties. Mom smiled at my comment. While Mom went to help Gina start to get ready, I received the deliveries of the flowers and the cake, helped Mary get ready to create Gina's bridal hairdo and makeup and helped the photographer get set up. Gina came downstairs beaming. She thanked me for her bridal lingerie, saying I made her really feel like a bride. I said that while Mary was doing her hair, I was going to change. At that moment, Gina realized that Mary was there to assist her and that the photographer had already begun to take pictures of Gina in her bridal lingerie and white satin robe. As Mary fastened a shampoo cape around my little sister, I went and changed into my Matron of Honor gown, shoes and crinoline.
When I got back downstairs, Gina was sitting with a large plastic hair dryer bonnet covering her rollers while Mary did her makeup. Gina did a double take as she looked at me in my Matron of Honor gown. While Mary combed her hair out, Gina looked at me questioningly. I said that if I was going to be her Matron of Honor, I couldn't very easily be her photographer, hence, the professional taking the pictures. I said that she needed to feel like a true bride, hence, Mary to do her hair and makeup, me to be her Matron of Honor and Mom to serve as the mother of the bride. No bride is complete without her bouquet, hence, the flowers for her. Finally, a wedding cake, even a small one, is a must for the bride. Gina just looked at me thankfully.
Once Mary finished with Gina's hair and removed the shampoo cape, I had Gina put on her heels. Mom then assisted her with the crinoline, securing it around Gina's waist. Mom and I then helped Gina into my wedding gown. After Gina had put her arms into the sleeves, I lovingly and carefully buttoned up the back of the gown. Mom had Gina carefully sit down while Mary pinned the headpiece and the veil to Gina's hair. When she finally looked at herself in the mirror, all Gina could say over and over again was, "I don't believe it." Mom and I went through the bride's checklist. The new was Gina's bridal lingerie, the borrowed, of course, was my wedding gown and veil, the blue was the bridal garter that Gina wore on her leg. Mom left the room for a minute. When she returned, she put a single strand of pearls around Gina's neck and pearl clip-on earrings on her ears. "This necklace and earrings have been in the family for many years. I want you to wear them today as you become the bride. Now you have the something old also to go with the something new, borrowed and blue," she said.
Mom helped Gina stand and I straightened her train out. While the photographer positioned Gina, I went and got her bridal bouquet. I handed it to her and then helped to pin Mom's corsage on. The photographer took the portrait shots of Gina, facing left and then facing right; with her veil up and then with her veil down over her face. Gina virtually glowed during this photo session. She was radiant as a bride and I think that she knew it. Mom was then included in pictures with Gina. You could almost see Mom start to mist up as she posed with her new daughter.
Of course, big sister had to pose with little sister. Several pictures were taken of the two of us. Finally, the photographer posed the three of us, with Gina, naturally, in the center as the true center of attention. I don't know which of us had the biggest smile on her face. Gina obviously radiated as the bride; Mom beamed with the maternal pride in being there with her original daughter and her new daughter; I simply beamed over seeing Gina as a bride.
The cheesecake shot was also included as Gina sat in a chair while I slowly lifted the hem of her gown, ultimately revealing her bridal garter and the white satin of her bridal panties. Gina smiled but started blushing as soon as I exposed more of her legs until she was the reddest when I lifted the gown high enough to even show off her pretty panties. Mom and Mary both loved every second of it. Lastly, Gina cut the wedding cake. I did the honors of feeding her a piece, just as if she were the bride. Gina, in turn, also fed Mom and me each a piece of wedding cake. It was nice that none of us wound up with icing and wedding cake smeared all over our faces.
Before I let Gina change and the photographer leave, I gave Mom her bag of pictures and Gina hers. Mom was simply amazed at how nice the portraits of Gina were. Mary said that Gina showed off well in the pictures. Finally, I gave Gina her wedding present and told her to open it. She gasped as she removed the beautiful negligee from the box. "This is for your first night as a bride," I told Gina. "Enjoy wearing it while you sleep." I had her hold it up while the photographer took more pictures.
Finally, the photographer packed up and left. As Mary was getting ready to leave, she came over to Gina, hugged her and said, "Gina, I am glad that I could make this day special for you. Not only are you a beautiful bride, but you also make a lovely young lady. Yes, I know about the two parts of your being. Sharon told me about it when she asked me to do your bridal makeup and hairdo. She immediately swore me to secrecy. If she had not told me, I would have never known that you are not an attractive young lady. I think that it is great that you can experience your sensitive side in this manner. I want you to know that any time I can assist you to become Gina, let me know. It would be my pleasure to help." When Mary said this, Gina almost broke down. She quickly regained her composure and tightly hugged Mary and thanked her for everything.
With the house quiet again, Mom, Gina and I simply looked at each other for a few seconds. Gina then came over and embraced me tightly. "Sharon, thank you for everything that you did for me today. Being able to wear your wedding gown and feel like a bride was wonderful. Having everything else, including Mary to do my hair and the photographer to record the event was truly an unexpected surprise. Your gift of both my bridal lingerie and my wedding negligee are things that I will always treasure. Most of all, I will always treasure you, my big sister, both as my Matron of Honor today and for just being you. This is the happiest day of my life and I owe it all to you."
I hugged Gina back, so afraid that if I let go of her, I would burst into tears. I had just started to regain my composure as Gina released me when Mom came over and gave me another hug. "Sharon, I want to thank you also. You have given me the opportunity to see both of you as brides. If asked, I would be hard-pressed to say which of you was the more beautiful. I appreciate all that you have done to help bring Gina more into our family. You have helped to give me a second daughter that I love dearly. While I know that it is only part time, I still regard Gina as my daughter."
When Gina joined in for a group hug, I lost it completely. Through my tears of joy, I could see similar tears flowing down both Mom's cheeks and Gina's cheeks. Mom was able to reach for some tissues on a nearby table. Handing some to Gina and some to me, we all carefully dried our eyes, so that we wouldn't ruin our makeup any more than we already had.
I asked Mom if she would go and get one of Gina's dressy dresses while I helped her out of her gown. As Mom left the room, Gina looked at me and said, "Sharon, this has all been so nice. I almost don't want to remove your wedding gown." I looked at her and said, "Maybe someday you will find a young lady who is kind and understanding that will accept you both as Gene and as Gina. When you find that special girl who will accept you for who you are and not reject you because of what you wear, hang onto her. If you do find this special someone, maybe then you can wear my wedding gown again, this time during the actual ceremony."
With reluctance on both our parts, I helped Gina out of her veil, gown and crinoline. Mom brought a regular length slip, a green satin dress and matching heels for Gina to wear. She had also changed into a stylish gray dress and heels and touched up her makeup. Additionally, she had gotten a regular length slip, a blue satin dress and matching heels for me to change into. We changed and retouched our makeup too. Mom suggested that we go out for a celebratory dinner at a nice restaurant. We both agreed and soon we were enjoying a good dinner as a mother out with her two very attractive daughters.
Several years have now passed since that memorable day. Of course, that night Gina wore her wedding lingerie to bed. She later told me that it felt so heavenly sleeping in the white satin which she knew was usually reserved for the bride's wedding night. Mom displayed pictures of both her daughters throughout the house. Occupying a prominent place in the living room are the pictures of both of her daughters as brides. Gina naturally treasures all of her pictures while dressed as Gina. She continues to blossom and grow, both as Gina and as Gene. One of the ways that she is growing is that the breast forms inserted into her bra have been replaced and now she wears ones that give her a nice C-cup. This makes her dresses and blouses fit nicer. Gina even wears a bra while she sleeps so that her feminine breasts will project out from her nightgown also.
Mary continued to help Gina enjoy the look and feel of all things feminine, especially with regard to her hair and makeup. Whenever I would suggest a visit to the beauty parlor, Gina would enthusiastically agree. Sometimes Mary would just do Gina's hair and makeup; sometimes she would do us both. It is a thrill to look across the salon and see your little sister getting a permanent while you sit there with your hair up on perm rods also.
Later that summer, we undertook the pain and anguish of buying bathing suits. Although we both found one-piece suits to our liking, Gina did have to admit that it was not as pleasurable as shopping for dresses or lingerie. However, shopping for bathing suits has now become an annual ritual of spring. Gina gets to wear it when we spend a week at the beach.
I now have a daughter of my own that both Grandmom and Aunt Gina spoil completely and shamelessly. While I was pregnant, Gina and I went shopping for some maternity clothes. Just because she can't get pregnant doesn't mean that Gina can't experience the joy and the feeling of the clothes. Gina now has a few maternity outfits as well as some maternity lingerie included in her wardrobe.
Gene is a well-adjusted young man who really enjoys his feminine side. He is now finishing his junior year at college and is doing quite well. He is dating Julie, a fine young woman who he met as a freshman. It looks like this may be serious. His girl friend already knows about and accepts Gina as a part of Gene's persona. Not only that, she and Gene wear the same size clothes. Julie was seen Gina's wardrobe and thinks that she has some very nice clothes. Julie and Gina have come to the beach for a week. I enjoyed seeing both of them in their feminine bathing suits, side by side on the beach. They seemed to enjoy it also.
Gina told me that after the Junior Prom, they went back to Julie's apartment with the express intent of giving Gina the opportunity to wear Julie's lovely prom gown, heels and elbow length gloves. Gina described the gown as a full skirted dress with fitted bodice and a square neckline in Kelly green satin that required a crinoline, a long slip and four-inch heels. She told me that Julie finished the roll of pictures they had taken before and during the prom that night. However, my little sister didn't tell me anything else about what happened at Julie's apartment. Gina has told me that Gene had already asked Julie to marry him and that Julie had accepted. She will be given her engagement ring on her birthday in a few weeks. Both Gene and Gina could not be any happier.
With a wedding in the future, who knows? Maybe Gina will again have the opportunity to be the bride this time for real. My daughter may even be Gina's flower girl and I would again, happily, be the Matron of Honor for my little sister. I am glad that I have a little sister and that I have been able to help her experience her femininity. I would do everything all over again for her if I had to. I guess I had better start planning a bridal shower and teaching my daughter how to take that slow measured tread down the aisle in front of her Aunt Gina.
