I shave my pits and my legs when I get around to it otherwise I am not waxing, shaving or plucking anything else except for the few random hairs on my chinny chin chin. Don't much care what is trendy and never have.

Geez. Now we are supposed to shave our arms too? Wouldn't the hair grow back weird? I have too many other things to shave already, I can't add anything else into the routine. I'll just have to be untrendy!

I know of no one who shaves their arms.... it's enough trouble to shave the legs!

I've shaved my arms since highschool, but got into it because I was on the swim team.

Just an old showering habit that's always stuck with me, and I prefer having smooth arms.

The hair doesn't grow back thicker or weird, it's actually still very fine.

I gf doesn't shave her arms because her hair is very light and there's not much of it on her arms. You really can't tell it's there.

However, a lot of you mentioned how annoying it is to shave/wax. My gf got laser hair removal for where she used to wax. It's a one time thing (technically two since it requires two visits).

No I don't shave my arms. But my hair is blonde on them almost white and thin.

I had an Italian Teacher in high-school that told us she does it. But her hair was dark and a lot of it.

I don't shave my arms, but I don't really have arm hair. I don't know how I'd feel if I had more. I guess it depends.

That's what I'm afraid of, weird regrowth or itchy, bumpy arms. Ick. I'm not interested in shaving my arm hair, but I was just curious if walking around with arm hair as a woman was akin to tons of armpit hair on a woman.
