Have you talked to your boyfriend about how you feel? Maybe just explaining your insecurities will help you open up to him and possibly even feel closer to him. Maybe buy some cute lingerie that actually covers more than you think? I hate my stomach too, so I bought a camisole that was somewhat sheer over the stomach and less so over the breasts. That way its sexy but you are still covered some too. I think just talking about it and taking baby steps are the easiest ways.

ETA: ok I skimmed the post the first time. After re reading, I think talking to your boyfriend is still a good idea, but perhaps talking to a therapist would also be beneficial too. It’s normal to be self concious sometimes, but not to the point where you’re so uncomfortable that you’re crying and feeling taken advantage of. I think working through each issue with a professional would really help. Good luck!

Have you considered counselling to help you overcome some of these challenges?
