I wear my swimming trunks to the shower. My wife wears a pull over sun dress (light weight, thigh length). We wear our shower shoes, we carry our towels and shower supplies. We usually just take soap and shampoo. The soap is in a small plastic container. We wear the same clothing both ways. Dressing and other hygiene activities are done when we get back ...
This will be very country and even camp ground specific. Least likely to offend approach is to do what most of the others do. If just one person is doing what you want, don't presume its acceptable, wait till you have seen several people doing it. If everyone is getting dressed to go to showers (unlikely), get dressed. In the unlikely even most people ...
Here are a couple of tips. Make it harder for them to steal anything, roll up your vehicle's windows and lock its doors. Make your stuff less attractive to thieves, cover valuables with a blanket and don't flash expensive gear or jewelry.

I have been camping for years, and have never lost anything to theft, nor has anyone I know lost anything to theft. I ...
The most important advice is get a good quality 6-person tent. You don't want to deal with leaks and broken poles with 2 young kids while camping. Since your children are still napping, you want to make sure the tent has great ventilation and look at a tent fan as well. There are a ton of reviews to check out. We are both car campers and backpackers, so ...
I just was told this last weekend: Lock your tent! Of course thiefes can cut the tent and still steal your stuff but at least your insurance is going to pay if the tent was locked (check the conditions of your insurance and in doubt ask your insurer). Besides that you should not leave your valuable stuff in the tent alone, also if it's just valuable for ...
I would wear shorts to the shower. That way you don't accidentally lose your towel and end up flashing everyone.
