How many ladies actually have perfect armpits?

I envy those ladies who can throw their hands in the air and wave 'em like they just don't care. I shave my pits daily, yet somehow, I still have a 5:00 shadow. How the hell do you get nice, smooth pits?

  • Waxing. I have fine hair anyway, so it's not a big deal, but for ladies with thicker or coarser hair waxing is a good option :)

  • Ok I have coarse hair like you and also envy those with perfect pits! UGH! I HATE IT. I have sensitive skin and break out if I shave every day. So i'll wear a tank one day and t the next. I tried the waxing thing and it left me looking like I had a 2nd degree burn on my pits. I was in so much pain i have vowed to never do it again. I plan on trying lasik if I can save the money! Let me know if you find a good cure!

  • you have to shave in all different directions. up, down, sideways...I've never had the 5 o'clock shadow pit problem.

  • I agree, waxing but get it done professionally, none of this Nads stuff.

  • I shave in aaaall directions. Don't get me wrong. It's not like my hair just drags the ground. It just looks unshaven when it really is. Being a brunette is a chore!

  • I have to shave every day too! My mom says I get the shadow FROM shaving every day. I don't believe it. I couldn't wax my armpits though, yikes!

  • I get a little shadow thing going on but I cant shave everyday or I get razor burn really bad, so people are just gonna have to deal with a little shadow u cant really tell unless you;'re sitting there staring

  • Some women just aren't very hairy.  I'm one of them.  I can go a week without shaving my armpits and it's barely noticeable.

  • I get a five o clock shadow too but it is barely noticeable because I have a small amount of armpit hair. I still don't like it. I shave in all directions too and try to not do it every day also. I used to get away with doing it once a week but not anymore.
