Dear 100 Hour Board,
On an entirely hypothetical issue, what do you think we wear in heaven? Endowed members of the church are buried in their temple clothing, but does that mean we're walking around for eternity in temple slippers and white suits/dresses? Do you think garments will still be a thing?
-kinda prefers the idea of eternally wearing yoga pants, tbh
Dear Yoga Pants,
Well hot diggity dog! It's time for—
*A nearby bluegrass band eagerly gets into position*
—me to randomly speculate without mentioning any sort of doctrine, folk or otherwise!
*The band members dejectedly lower their instruments and walk away*
I mean, maybe there's some folk doctrine on this, but none that I really care to research. I could see the case for temple clothes being the norm up there, but not really on the basis that it's what we wear when we're buried. I don't think that bit matters too much.
As for me, I just always assumed that we'd be wearing the sort of robes that Moroni is described as wearing when he appeared to Joseph Smith. Those sound comfy enough, though I don't deny that so do Celestial Yoga Pants.
Guess we'll just have to see, huh?
Personally, I think we'll be able to wear whatever we want. Considering our desires will be in alignment with God's, modesty won't be an issue, and so I imagine there won't need to be some heavenly law pertaining to that.
As far as all the speculations about day to day things in heaven go (diet, clothes, etc.) I'm of the opinion that if God intended us to derive happiness out of something here on earth, there's a good chance that thing will also be in the eternities.
I always assumed it would be what we were comfortable with but in a clean way, not a sloppy way. Like I just feel like there's a lot of people who would not consider it Heaven if they had to spend all of eternity in their temple dresses/suits.
I've always wondered the same thing, except I'm not endowed so I would picture everyone being in baptistry jumpsuits for all eternity. Here's to hoping that won't happen.
We wear ceremonial white to represent the unity and purity we will feel in heaven. I think once we're actually there, we won't need to wear white to feel that way.
