I'm going to be in Ghent again for an art exhibition in a couple of weeks time and so can go to this sauna again.
Jealous! I have no trips planned yet for this year.

No, but other than acknowledging it was a former Prime Minister, I shall allow anonymity.

It was very pleasant in the spa in Ghent on Sunday afternoon, the staff were helpful to those who were new, and the only difficulty was having to wait to use the steam room as a group of five women were in there and it only is big enough for five people.

That’s a tiny steam room! The last one I went in probably holds over 100!

Over 100! I have been in saunas that large but the biggest steam room for me probably held 20 people. It was in Berlin.

My favourite is just outside the centre of Brussels and has a steam room in what appears to be an old cellar. Great for an aufguss.

Is it one of these:

or
https://www.thermae.com/en/moenia-thermae-boetfort

Seems these would have been OK for the OP given they have a swimsuit area.

The title makes the situation worse than it sounds, but it still makes me feel uncomfortable.

My girlfriend is Dutch and we recently went over to the Netherlands to meet her parents and friends. The trip on the whole was great except for one afternoon when my gf suggested we went to a Sauna and meet some of her friends. I was obviously totally up for that and met her friends at the the sauna. Unfortunately for me, I didn't realise until we got to the changing rooms, that at Dutch Sauna's everyone gets their kit off (I ignorantly thought this only happened in the Scandinavian countries).

All of a sudden my girlfriend and two of her friends I had only just met her completely in the buff. I felt so awkward, but didn't want to cause an issue with my gf so got undressed too. The four of us then spent an hour in the sauna. While nothing "bad" happened, I just felt so self-conscious about myself rather than relaxing. For example, all of them were 'smooth' in the downstairs department, unlike my myself and I would be thinking "Oh god, what must they think of me!"

I know most people will think I'm just being silly, but I really found the whole experience awkward. We're back in the UK, so we won't be going to any type of saunas like that for a while, so I don't know whether I should just keep it to myself or mention it to her.
Just forget it and also learn to like yourself. You don't need to look like everyone else!

Yep. Been to both but the big steam room is at Boetfort. You should try it next time you go to Belgium.

It won't be for a long time, or any other sauna.

I get their emails and social media updates. The private saunas had been open but they’ve announced today that they’re now completely closed, except for the hotels.

Haha! Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think I'll be popping into another sauna for a while.

Once the lockdown is over and places like saunas are allowed to open and operate as they did before, when you're next over in Holland, make a point of trying to adopt your g/f's cultural attitude, even if you only do it once to begin with.
As uncomfortable as you might be initially, it's good to challenge ourselves to do things that we're not exactly comfortable with but actually do us no harm.

You weren’t forced, you willingly got naked. If you didn’t like it you could’ve just said you’re not ok with it. You haven’t even talked about it to your gf. It’s entirely your fault you ended up in a situation like that, YOU decided to take off your clothes. Your gf would’ve understood if you said no

The other thing with a sauna is that you can have a towel wrapped around you, or part of you, and no-one will be bothered.

It may be a while before you can go there again, especially if the 14 day quarantine idea upon return is introduced.

Don't be ridiculous. Be comfortable with your body. You shouldn't care what anyone else thinks - chances are you're the one sitting awake at night, worrying about this whilst they're sleeping soundly.
It's not that easy for some people, though :/

Yes, I felt really self-conscious about it, at the time.
