I am a bit of a glamourpuss. Clothes are my life and I am known for being a bit of an extrovert. My FI knows I’m a show off and he enjoys it when i look ‘hot.’ He thinks my confidence is sexy and my confidence comes from the clothes!

Jennybee224:  Yes, but it’s not always a bad thing. I did dress kind of skanky when we first met (I was a rebellious teen at the time). He’s always mindful if my bra straps or thong is showing so it comes in handy.

I didn’t completely change how I dress, but I did tone it down a bit. It wasn’t anything he said or did, I just didn’t like the attention anymore. I’ve got the only man I want looking at me

I dress more sexy or in tighter clothes when i’m out on a date with him or because he request it when generally I like to dress more trendy. When i’m going out with girlfriends or by myself I try and tame it down because I just dont feel as safe as I would with my FI there.

Jennybee224:  Probably yes. I mean I don’t see anything wrong with a little cleveage. I have a C-D cup, so they’re not tiny, but not overly huge. FI on the other hand thinks that if I bend over and someone can see at all down my shirt I’m showing too much. However, I’m a bartender and boobs=tips. Sad, but true. So he lets me get away with somewhat low cut shirts even though he doesn’t like it.

I feel like I go a little sexier now… I’m pretty modest in general, but I know FI likes a little tasteful cleavage or some leg action. I also feel safer dressing like that with him- I know he’d take care of any issues that might happen.

The first few years of dating DH I dressed a lot sexier than I did before we were dating. Years into marriage, I dress about as sexy as I did before dating (ie. not very sexy). I honestly think DH wishes I still pulled on the skin tight dresses, but honestly, we’re at the age that that looks a little sad and where would I even wear those to? We don’t go clubbing anymore (my knees hurt and we both like to get to bed at a reasonable hour lol) and a nice restaurant and slutty dress don’t mesh (although I used to do it all the time and felt awesome about it).
