Prerequisites for Purchasing Temple Garments
A person must be an endowed member of the church before he or she is permitted to purchase garments; that is, he or she must have been received as a full member of the church through a temple ceremony. According to LDSEndowment.org, a "temple recommend," a document that certifies the purchaser as a participating member of a temple, is required before the purchase of temple clothing is permitted. The temple recommend is not needed for the purchase of temple garments--the undergarments required by the Mormon faith--since people who are not able to participate in temple worship due to disciplinary action are expected to continue wearing the garment.
On-Site Temple Garment Purchases
Temple garments are made and sold by Beehive Clothing Distribution, an LDS-owned store located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Beehive Clothing has many local distribution points all over the world. Beehive Clothing does not have a website; however, the store can be reached at 800-521-1203.
Online Temple Garment Purchases
White temple clothing--dresses, trousers, slippers and other items--can be purchased online from many different sources. Temple garments are only available online through the LDS website at www.ldscatalog.com. This page will ask the temple-endowed member for his or her birth and confirmation dates, full name, and church membership number before allowing the purchaser to continue. According to this site, temple-endowed members can authorise purchases for new members.
