Had a swanky new bath in the bathroom. Obvs hmm. It's very wide.

I've never been a bath fan, probably because of been rather ahem sturdy, touch opportunity for wibbly wobbly navel gazing.

But new bath, shrinking body, I thought why tfh not?

Shoitsters it's uncomfortable!shock

Currently sitting up after trying on my back, on my front, recovery position (better than expected actually). So now what? Give it up?

Anyone successful in the Art of Comfy Bathery?

I don't find baths comfortable or relaxing in any way either grin

ChaosTrulyReigns Mon 12-Jun-17 22:03:08

Great. That helps! grin

BTW touch = to much
Been = being

Bath typos

Stop MNing in the bath! That isn't helping you get comfy grin

I find baths relaxing I lie on my back with knees bent and feet resting on the end

Did you try the bath before you had it installed? I hopped into them in the showroom on MN advice, lots were surprisingly uncomfortable. Obviously I looked like a tit but my bath is comfy wink

Did you take the packaging off before running the water and getting in?

I loves a bath. Probably not hindered by being 5ft 0.

We have had a new bathroom (and obvs bath) over two years now. I've had two baths in it. Why wallow in a hard tub full of dirty water waiting for the water to turn cold when you can jump in and out of a lovely steaming shower in 10 minssmile

Anything other than an enamel bath is uncomfortable. Most modern baths are plastic with very sharp edges, they look great but are no good for a lovely long soak with a good book.

My bath is large. The only comfy way is to sit sideways. Cross legged. And lean back against the wall.

Actually not really comfy but better than thrashing around trying to find purchase lengthways.

I have one, maybe two baths a year. I just can't get comfy. I've had achey meck/back shoulder problems for years and thought it was just that I wasn't comfy anywhere, but now that's pretty much much sorted and I still struggle. Shame as I love being enveloped by hot water.

Maybe a bath the size of a swimming pool that would allow me to free float on my back would be good though.

Bath pillows?

Lying very comfortably in the bath reading this right now 🛀🏼

Last time I had a bath I accidentally left the shower hose underwatwr, with cold water running in the whole time. So I was topping up with hot to no avail for about half an hour before I gave up and got out, then realised what I'd done. Very upsetting.

YES glad someone else thinks this grin

The bath's too hard against my back and I don't know whether to lean back or sit up and where to put my neck, had to ask my family members who like baths how to do it hahaa

Rip it out and put in a huge walk in shower. I hate baths.

Yes, MN, I know this is not a good idea re house saleability.

My bath is exceptionally comfy. It's the height of luxury wallowing in it for an hour, almost submerged by lovely bubbles, having a really good soak. Think some of you must be minging if your bath water is dirty.
I just lean back with my head resting on one end. Glass of wine if I'm feeling really reckless, good book or sometimes mumsnet. Can't beat it.

SleightOfHand Mon 12-Jun-17 22:19:13

Have you got the water really deep?

IrenetheQuaint Mon 12-Jun-17 22:19:25

On your front floating with hands on the bottom of the bath can be weirdly zen.

sufficatedsue Mon 12-Jun-17 22:19:41

Ooh I love a bath!!! I have a bath pillow and I'm just the right height to lay with my neck supported on the pillow and my feet up on the other end grin

I imagine it's hard work to lie comfortably in a bath if you're short though as how do you stop yourself slipping under the water?!

If I didn't have my weekly bath I'd be certifiable. I have it on a Saturday afternoon with candles, wine, music and a book. It is my one complete indulgence. Luckily DP uses that time to play PlayStation so we are both happy grin

I am also of wobbly tum OP but a good book and a glass of wine and generous lighting stop me from caring grin

Er Irene either you have a swimming pool for a bath or you're a hobbit grin.
