  • Talk to him about it. Most men are clueless in this department.

  • Tell him what you need. He obviously has no idea. A lot of men see you with their eyes but the information rarely moves into the speech center of the brain. He's enjoying the view but doesn't even think to mention it.

  • This is something that has to come natural, you can't force anyone to do this is has to come natural, and if it doesn't it is just not in him, unless you see him compliment others.......

  • Why do you feel the need to be complimented so badly? If you know you look good, then that should be enough. Not all men are good at that stuff. And personally I would rather have a genuine compliment rather than one that came from me telling him I wanted a compliment. But if you are fishing for compliments you could ask him his opinion on your new outfits.

    Oh, and maybe I misread or something, but why would you buy a suit that makes your boobs look big for church??

  • How frustrating! You may just need to be blunt with him.

  • Fish for it. "What do you think?"

    But be aware that many men are conditioned NOT to talk about what their wives look like, because they fear their intended compliment will backfire and upset their wives! (The "does this make me look fat?" conundrum.)

    I must be defective; I don't expect compliments... and I get suspicious when my husband gives me one. ("What did you do this time? type of suspicious!)

    God made the boobs and everything He does is perfection, so the boobs are perfectly beautiful too

  • You clearly know you have a nice body and the clothing looks good on you. Maybe your husband assumes you don't require a compliment for something that seems obvious?

  • I dress appropriate to go to church,after all i am a sunday school teacher. i mentioned my boobs because i know i have a great bod not because i show my boobs in my suits.if i always go out my way to let my husband know he looksgood then i expect the same in return , its not about knowing i look good which i do ,it's about my husband letting me know he notice.

  • Honey, if you want a compliment you have to ask for it until you have him trained to do it without you asking. It takes time and patience and work. You could be as stunning as Jennifer Aniston and he's not going ot say a damn thing if he hasn't been taught that that is what you expect, crave, and need to feel special. Sorry but you just gotta train em.
