Wiki

 The exact format of naked ladies parties varies greatly, but the general concept is that women clean out their closets and dressers, bring things they no longer want or need to a designated location and make them available to other women who may want them. All unclaimed items at the end of the event can be donated to charity.

Format Options:

1) Free for All -- Women bring their discards and dump (or display) them in a central area. All women grab things they want on a first-come, first-takes basis. 
-- Pros: You can invite as many women as you have space for with this approach. It's efficient. It allows women to come and go open house-style if they choose. 
-- Cons: It's a bit anti-social and competitive. Also, clothes you were wearing to the party may get taken by someone else when you're trying something else on. 

2) Item by Item -- Each woman takes a turn at the front of the group. She presents each item that she brought one by one. She can share pertinent information such as size, brand and whether there are any stains or holes. Any woman in the audience can call out if she's interested in the item. She can just take it or try it on. If she tries it on and doesn't want to keep it, someone else can try it. Items that no one claims form a pile.
Pros: It's more social, allows for a formal farewell to items that you're particularly attached to, and because everyone's attention isn't totally divided in self interest, women can observe what others are trying on and provide constructive feedback.
Cons: This is difficult to manage with more than 10-12 people. It can be successful with as few as 4.

Best Practices for Hosting a Naked Ladies Party:
  • Have food and drinks available. Messy finger foods are not recommended because you'll be handling clothes. 
  • Consider a girly themed drink. "Pink Panties" are a crowd pleaser, concocted from pink lemonade, vodka and crushed ice -- with whipped cream on top.
  • Remind guests to bring purses, shoes, jewelry and other accessories in addition to clothes.
  • Remind guests to wear underwear they wouldn't mind other women seeing so that everyone is comfortable changing in the common area to keep the event moving along.
  • Provide mirrors for guests to view themselves.
  • Encourage guests to disclose if they have pets. Sometimes clothes provoke surprise attacks on the allergies of their new owners.
  • Remember that greed is good. If needed, nudge shy people to get them into the spirit. When you see something that would look good on them, suggest they try it on.
  • Decide on a charity that will receive the discards in advance so that you can tell your guests where their castoffs will end up. 
  • Be honest, but gentle. If something doesn't look good on someone or fit them, point it out delicately.  
  • Photos are discouraged.
  • No men allowed.

Leftover clothes are donated to a nonprofit
 When do women usually gather? Birthdays? Bridal showers? Bachelorette parties? Baby showers? That's nice, but it's usually focused on one woman and makes the rest of the women wonder when they'll hit those milestones or long for back when they did. In other words, it's not really fun for everyone.      But Naked Ladies Parties are fun for everyone! Everyone gets to feel good about cleaning out their stuff a little, giving to a good cause and getting a few new treasures …
