Being happy with your body

hive83 hive83
I am sixty & my husband 64 & we aare still sexually active. The thing is my
husband like me to dress up real sexy but a have always had an issue with my
body since I was a teenager. After losing so much weight & then having two babies my tummy hangs down below anything I wear that is cut provocatively
on the hip & tummy. I am not that overweight but this has really become an issue between the 2 of us. He says to just go with the flow but I can't get
past the fat teenager all those years ago. My husband says that I am still as
sexy as hell & to loosen up. Any body have any good suggestions?

Good suggestions for what exactly?

I mean you seem to have a huge issue with this. YOU need to make yourself feel better since you are not letting him help you. You are not trusting his words. He wants to see you in these things because he obviously thinks you look good in them, otherwise he wouldn't want it right? So...you could get things that you like that do cover what you don't like.

Or...take a more drastic measure that I'm not sure is safe at your age...a tummy tuck.

I have actually thought about a tummy tuck but don't know
if I want to go through that at my age. But my husband
suggested the same thing as you did about the cover up part.
Thanks for the suggestion. It is really apppreciated.

I feel the same about my body too. I know how it feels.
To me, if I don't like what I see, I can't understand how anyone else can so I tend not to believe what guys say.
I'd go with what Lauren said about finding a piece that covers up the areas you dont like.
It's not quite as hot as some of the sexy pieces but this is one I'd like to get so it covers my stomach and upper thighs - link

The only reason I said that is because EVERY woman deserves to feel sexy no matter what age she is and if you can do something that will change how YOU feel about YOU then you should do it. Even at your age, you deserve to feel sexy and confident in your own skin.

I really feel for you. I went through self esteem issues hard as a teen and have struggled with it here and there as my body still changes growing up. i took the time to find some pieces that are sexy and hopefully cover what will make you feel uncomfortable. You said you are not that overweight, so I took that to maybe mean you wear a medium or large? And that your problem area is your lower abdomen... Here are hopefully some choices you might consider. I chose a variety of styles since I don't know what your husband likes and exactly what your body looks like:

Chiffon robe with bra and thong: link

sexy-bra-and-panties: link perhaps you can put that band around what bothers you?

velvet-forest-top-with -shorts: link

lace-and-mesh-babydoll -with-g-string: link

sequin-seduction-babyd oll-and-g-string: link

stretch-lace-apron-bab ydoll: link

naughty-in-paris-lace- babydoll: link

pinstripe-chemise-and- thong: link

athena-lace-babydoll-r ed: link

ecstasy-embroidered-sa tin-nightdress-set: link






If you would like me to find other things based on different criteria, I'd be happy to do that.

I have some self esteem issues too (just like most Women), but you shouldn't feel that way with your Husband. First of all, he has seen your body naked thousand's of times. It isn't anything new to him. Second of all, if he thinks that you look great and can pull off an outfit, that should give you the confidence you need. You are in your sixties and your Husband not only wants to have sex, but he wants to have it with the light on, and he wants you dressed kinky. You should be thrilled! I really hope that I am in your situation at your age regardless of what my body looks like. : )

First, congrats of having such a kick-ass sex life! I think there's a pre-conceived notion that older couples are intimate with one another still, but not necessarily in a sexual manner.

As far as the stomach apron goes, oy, I'm right there with you. I'm 26 years old, and due to losing 150 lbs (I was pushing 350 at my heaviest *sigh*) and going through two pregnancies (one of which ended in a c-section), I too have the dreaded stomach apron. Surgery is on the table, but not for a couple of years. In the meantime, I've made do by avoiding types of lingerie that don't come down low enough. After all, what is the point of sexy lingerie if I feel anything but sexy in it?

Ladies, thanks to all of you for your keen insight & help in this
matter. I was beginning to think I was the only one with this
issue. I will take all suggestions with me when I hit the mall.
Thanks again!!!
