I think there are boundaries there that shouldn't be crossed.  If he accidentally walks in while you are changing or needs something from your room while you are sleeping that stuff happens.  But I would be concerned with an adult son who made an effort to see you naked,  or a mom who purposely was naked around an adult son.  

Is that what you're asking?

It should be discussed tactfully with your son, that he should not enter the room when you are changing your dress as you are disturbed. Some time it is a curiosity to see a naked female body.So it is better to talk about it.

Manana,  I can't tell what you're statement "No effort done from him.  But sure accidents walking usually happens" means.

Are you saying he's unintentionally seeing you naked - like,  you walk around naked when you don't think he's there,  or you don't shut the bathroom door?

If this accidental watching continues for a longer time,it may create some problem in future.By your gesture you can show him that this situation is not liked by you.Yes you will have to be cautious about the posture and your dress. As a mother you can directly say that he should not enter your room when you are dressing.

I'm just going to chime in but maybe you won't see it.  Anyway, different cultures have different "rules."  For instance my brother-in-law is German.  They go swimming in the nude and it doesn't matter if mom is there, dad is there, kids are there, grandparents are there.  The body is looked at differently in some cultures.  Now as for myself, born in the US, I have 21 and 19 year old boys.  I lock the door when I change just in case.  I shut the door when I use the bathroom or if I don't shut it in my own bedroom bathroom and hear someone coming, I shut it pretty darn quick.  I don't think they should be seeing me naked period and I'm sure that they don't want me to see them naked either.

Different families have different attitudes towards nudity. Sometimes different people in the same family are more modest than the others. In my opinion, no one should have to be uncomfortable because someone walks around naked~and no one should have to worry that someone is trying to see them undressed.
