Rosalba Neri surrounded by handmaidens in THE THREE AVENGERS (1964) 

This is pretty much a standard scene in most PEPLUM movies. They always go two ways: the woman pampered is pleasant to them and acknowledges them or, in this case, dislikes the pampering and wants them to scoot away. The idea of servants or slaves helping you to do the simplest things would be annoying. The lack of privacy is also a problem. Fun film with a great cast! The shenanigans of the Annoying Sidekicks (yes, there are two!) are too boisterous but if one overlooks this, the movie is cool.
