The reason why I'm asking is because I got my belly button pierced when I was fairly young (not thinking about it too much if you ask me), and now I'm not really sure if I want it or not.
I'm not trying to brag, but I do have a nice body (from what I've heard), and a cute belly button. If I leave the piercing, would it be considered trashy? Does it take away the sexiness of a girl's body? (Not that I want to use magazines as a reference, but no bra/bikini model has their naval pierced); which is kind of hinting at me that a sexy body shouldn't be pierced... OR, do you think it adds to the sexiness of a girl's body?
Please let me know! I'm not sure if I want to keep it or let the hole close up. Thank you!

I have my navel pierced, and I'm 19, got it done as a 17 year-old, and don't regret it. I've always thought they were really cute/sexy, but a little bit trashy and slutty as well, but when I want to look elegant and classy I take it out. Every boyfriend I've had/guy I've talked to thought it was really hot, too! Like you, I have a good body with nice abs (IMO, I hope :)!)and work out lots, so belly rings look fine, and only look bad if a girl has a really chubby stomach or fat rolls. Also, there aren't a lot of couture fashion models with pierced belly buttons, but many celebs have them, as well as some Victoria's Secret models.
If I were you, I wouldn't listen to anyone's opinion but your own, and keep it if you like it, let it close if you don't. Sometimes I like mine and sometimes I don't, and when I feel it's not appropriate for certain situations, I take it out, and put a clear plastic retaining banana barbell in, or just leave it with nothing in. In the end, it's your choice, and good luck!
P.S. If you don't like your piercing, maybe you could get different belly rings that are more mature/elegant? I have a friend who really likes my belly piercing when I have simple, non-dangly, piercings in, but thinks my jeweled and dangly ones are slutty. Jewelry companies make belly rings that are high-quality and non-sparkly, so you might look into those.
