What is the longest you have gone without shaving your legs? Underarms?

  • I didn't shave my underarms for years. I stopped from the age of 17 until I was almost 20.

    My legs? probably about a month. I really hate that feeling of hair rubbing against my pants though . . .

  • underarms maybe three days. i try to do them at least every other day if not every day. my legs - that's a whole nother story. i let them go for a long time somtimes. i'd say maybe 3 weeks is the longest. i'm just guessing i don't really know for sure.

  • I had gone 3 years for both before! I know, I got all kinds os flack from my sister and dad. But my husband didn't mind (now ex). He actually told me not to shave because he hated the stubble, but the longer hairs were softer. Hahahahahahahaha.

  • Underarms every night, legs - in the summer every night, in the winter once a week.

  • Weekly - I'm lucky 'cause I don't really get a lot of hair. In the winter, I can go about 2 weeks for the legs, but I still do the pits every week.

  • I shave my legs and pits everyday, I cant help it. I just hate the feeling of prickly/hairy legs. All my girlfriends make fun of me, they think its so silly. My husband appreciates it though : )

  • When I was single I shaved my underarms every couple of days. I was so busy being a single working mom I'd shave my legs when I needed a weed eater. I hated wearing shorts and always fingured no shorts, no sex, why bother. Now I can't stand the hair and shave every couple of days.

  • When I read the title of your thread, I thought you were calling me personally!! I keep my armpits shaved, but my legs . . whoa!! Sometimes they go for months, currently they are very hairy, but I am waiting for dh to buy new blades, so it not all my fault this time . . lol.
