As a woman and someone who is pretty modest, although much less as I

also, I've only used my about 3 times now. I found that it's not so
bad to change the upper half and the socks/shoes part in the hammock
but the pants/shorts area is pretty impossible. So far I've only
used my hammock in dispersed camping situations so the group I was
hiking with were the only other people around (well as far as I
knew). I just grabbed my clothes and walked off into the woods to
change or stood behind a tree. No biggy. IF I'm in a campground,
yuck!, I will just use my vehicle, or the restrooms or stand behind
my tarp. It's not really as troublesome as it seems.
Good luck and I think you will enjoy hammocking.
