Another day, another Twitter trending topic. This time, a garment labelled black “mother of the bride” dress by Bulgarian designer Tonena, has caused quite the stir among the people of the internet. The dress, which kinda looks like a full-length gown version of lingerie, is black, sheer, off-the-shoulder and completely backless. It’s mermaid shaped and has a feather trim. In other words, it’s what sexy Maleficent would wear to a Moulin Rouge themed boudoir party. But don’t take our word for it. Here it is in all of its motherly glory.

Of course, with a dress so dramatic and labelled as “mother of the bride,” people had opinions. Some were totally for it (if perhaps tongue-in-cheek):

Others, not so much:

Honestly, if our mom wanted to wear that dress, and were able to pull it off, more power to her. We like a little drama at our special events. For fans of the design, we’ve got some good news. Tonena makes all kinds of beautifully intricate dresses for everyone — even if you aren’t the bride’s mom. In fact, her dresses look fantastic on all sizes, and you can see some very happy Tonena dress owners in her Etsy shop reviews. Starting at a short fit and flare dress for $802 (in case you’re wondering, some of the dress details are as follows, “Neckline: Halter, Pockets: Yes, Sexy: Yes”), with the most expensive item being a bejewelled crystal wedding gown for $17,773.

Happy shopping, drama queens.
