Ι don’t know if the intimacy board is the right place, as this doesn’t have to do with love or sex but anyway..
I was talking about this with my sister who currently lives with a roommate. We came to the coclusion that most of the times it depends on who the other person is.
So how do you feel about being semi-naked or even naked, around roommates, girl friends etc or changing clothes in front of others? Does it depend on the situation ( college roommates for example) and who the other person is? Is it about being shy or sometimes about being insecure? Or you are naturally uncomfortable with this and you are ok being naked only around your SO?

I am comfortable being topless in front of close friends and family. And strangers in the appropriate location (nude beach).
I’m not as comfortable with my bottoms off.

I’d actually rather not know the other person.
But I don’t really care either way. It’s just the human body.

@lovelyinside: I voted “I am comfortable with this only around close friends and people that don’t mind it.”, but that’s not entirely accurate. I’m comfortable around close friends and my family and that’s it. All of my close friends I’ve known since high school, we’ve gotten dressed in front of each other a billion times and used to sleep in the same bed during sleepovers. Other adult friends I met as adults, that would just be weird IMO.

I’m a closet nudist. As long as the other person is comfortable with nudity, so am I.

yea I don’t really give a shit. I was a swimmer so I ‘deck changed’ a lot.. or changed in a locker room in front of people all the time. While I prefer to be in at least my underwear, I’ve def been naked infront of others. I was in the military and had to shower naked in front of people during certain points of training. NBD, its just a body.

I don’t care about changing in front of my friends, and it’s not a huge deal to change in front of people I don’t know well, although I prefer not to! I’m not comfortable being naked in front of anyone but SO.

Doesn’t bother me at all. When I was trying on wedding dresses I just ditched the bra so the consultant probably got an eyefull or two. Big deal…we’ve all seen boobies before.

I’m “full-figured” which is a politically correct way to say currently, I’m a little chunky. I’ve ALWAYS been comfortable in my body, big or small. I think it’s mostly just because I’ve accepted that I’m heavy right now. Clothes or no clothes, I’m chunky, there is no way to hide the fact. Obviously, I’m completely comfortable with my friends, but for things like doctors, fitting attendants, etc., I will strip down if I have to and not think twice about it.

Swimming made me comfortable stripping… We have female communal change rooms and showers so you get used to it. My current workplace provides uniforms so I get changed in front of my lockeR. I am “full figured” too, and figure other people can look away if they don’t want to see me half dressed.

I’m okay in a bra and panties in front of my very close female family, but fully naked…nope. Not happening.

@lovelyinside: I am pretty comfortable being naked around other women, in the sense that I think I look perfectly normal naked and there’s nothing weird about contextually appropriate nudity (ie, in a locker room/single-gender spa etc) but I am sensitive to making other people uncomfortable. So if me being naked made others feel awkward, I would then be uncomfortable.

bra and panties… Fairly open (I mean, what’s a bikini anyway?), but nips and lips? I try not to show those around very often. I do get changed at my gym in the main locker area, but it’s a fast flash and not like extended walking around in my nakedness

I’m okay being in my underwear in front of people at the locker room and such but I don’t like completely taking my underwear off in front of anyone.

I was a dancer for 22 years, and you do costume changes on the fly anywhere possible. From that I have gained a pretty large comfort zone in changing in front of people. I don’t care who it is.
I’m not about to lounge around with all my lady bits hanging out, with anyone aside from DH of course.
