It's that time of year where my mom shaves her legs one last time til spring. For those of you in climates where you wont bare skin til May or June, is not shaving (or waxing) your legs an option or is it gross?
How about your underarms?
Not really a debate, but I was thinking about it yesterday as I shaved my gams, and considered not buying another pack of bics til the thermostat rose above freezing again.
I shave all winter, but I bare skin at the gym and at the pool, even in the winter months.
Don't have to do underarms or bikini thanks to laser years ago
Don't you bare your skin at home? My husband sees my legs and there is nothing sexy to me about the hippie look. I don't plan on leaving the house this entire winter now that we moved to MI but I will keep shaving.
I do keep it up, but much less often.

But now I've been going to the gym regularly, so the upkeep is necessary, even through the winter.
I've never let it go for very long though.

I continue shaving all through winter. Even when it's -40. We're at the pool all the time, plus I LOVE the feeling of getting into clean sheets with nice smooth legs all lubed up with great-smelling lotion. Hubby doesn't seem to mind either. If I go longer than I should without shaving I feel not quite clean. IDK. Weird. And DD always says to me "Mommy, your legs are roughy just like daddy's face."
My hubby has a 'hair can't be longer than mine' rule, so I'm good to grow if I cared to. I do like to shave through the winter though. I'm not as earthy as my mum. and underarms are a must!!!
BIkini I had lasered off years ago. Can't rave enough about laser.
I'm blond with very thin barely there hair on my legs so even in summer I can usually go a week or more without shaving. In winter I might shave a few times if I decide to wear a skirt or something. At the gym I always wear long pants and don't do the pool so no worries there.
Underarms though are done every few days.
