Does anybody shave their arms? I just shaved mine yesterday after years of having ridiculously hairy arms. I wanted to shave my arms in school but heard it would grow back worse and I really didn't think anybody noticed it but me with my light brown skin and dark brown hair. Now I know people notice it, and since I always hated all my arm hair, I did away with it. I love it, I think it looks a lot better, I feel more feminine and I'll probably do it all the time now.

I do that or wax it. My hair is fine and soft but you can't feel stubble if I use a men's body groomer on it.
Razors seem to make it sharper stubble and sometimes irritates it.

I use:
Amazon.com: Philips Norelco BG2020 Bodygroom Shaver: Health & Personal Care

The bonus is that the razor in that thing last FOREVER compared to disposables for men or women.
You never have to worry about cutting youself so you can do it half asleep while getting ready in the am.LOL. It doesn't pull or pinch skin because the teeth are too small that are on the edges of the foil. Some trimmer's teeth part like to pull at the skin.(like how regular hair clippers can take a nip out of you with you turn it wrong or are not using a guard)

No, and the idea sounds really bizarre to me. I've very rarely noticed a woman's hairy arms. My own are a very fine light brown and I don't need yet another grooming habit to keep up with.

But at the same time, I probably wouldn't notice if a woman removed the hair from her arms. Bald or fuzzy, arms just don't register on my radar.

I shave my arms. From the neck down, I like to be sans hair.

On some women they're actually quite noticeable (recently I saw an Indian women who had more arm hair than the average man ), but I think it would also depend on the woman.

My friend (who's a woman) is very hairy on her arms and the top of her feet. She shaves them everyday, but you can definitely notice that she does. It grows back thick and dark and is noticeable even after you shave. I think you'll have better luck just waxing it instead.
