Please help me to find something to wear to bed on my wedding night
Oh, he has seen me naked! That ship sailed several years ago. But I tend to avoid it as much as possible because I feel quite self conscious. I struggle to change in front of him and I worry he'll be repulsed by my stomach and thighs. I must stress that these are entirely my hang ups. He would be very pleased with a greater amount of nudity, but I can't get there mentally.
Well I think that's a lovely nightie. I'm a flannel PJs sort of girl, but only cos I feel the cold. What I would say is 'forget your worries about your body'! Has soon to be DH SEEN you naked? Because if so, he'll be quite happy with what you look like - he knows what he's getting. And if not - then you are the only naked lady in that room and he'll be far too pleased that you are there to be 'comparing' you with anyone else mentally. Please don't worry about your chest/less than ideal bits. Being confident in your skin is far, far sexier than anything else, believe me.
I would have bought in silver. But I chickened out because I worried that the silk would highlight all of my less than ideal bits, of which there are many, and now it's sold out. However, I do like the idea of it and a lovely, tactile fabric like silk would be appealing.
I am 5'9", size 12-14 and wear a 32F bra, so I'm especially concerned about my chest looking unwieldy. However, I do intend to sleep in this, so it needs to be comfortable and relatively unstructured. I'm not looking for risqué lingerie with suspenders and whatnot.
Any thoughts on where I could find something like this? I am really not a sexy person, so the world of slinky nightwear is foreign to me!
