So when i was younger my mother always told me “never shave above the knee”, so i never have. I have really fine translucent hairs anyway and as above my knee barely get exposed ( not brave enough for short skirts) its not something i have ever really paid attention to, until FH was looking at my legs when we were lazing about watching tv and i guess the light caught them or something and he ended up playing me up about it all evening. you would think i had yeti legs – we have been together 3 years and he has never noticed before so go figure lol. Its not like im super hairy – i generally epilate once a month, my hair is so fine and soft and hardly grows back anymore on my lower legs, but now im super paranoid that i should do my whole legs, daily. lol.
So, am i completely gross or is it normal? Do you shave / remove the hair above your knees?
I shave all the way up to about 2 inches below my…ya know…
And then I shave or wax that, so every thing is smooth.
@M1cha3la: I don’t shave my legs at all, so I’m going to say it’s ok.
I have dark brown, almost black hair. I most definitely shave above the knee!
Yup, I shave all the way up the thigh. I want my whole leg to be hairless.
I normally dont cause they aren’t exposed anyways. But if we’re doing a beach vacation or something I’ll wax them too.
My mom told me the same thing. I only shave higher if I know Im im going to be wearing something a little shorter…other then that it takes up to much time and is not really worth it since my have blonde hair and you can barely see it.
I shave all the way up to where my thigh meets my pelvis. If I’m being lazy and know nothing above the knee will show, (like in a skirt suit), then I’ll go just above the knee. But in the summer when I’m in dresses and bathingsuits, then yes I go all the way up.
I have really fine, blond hair as well that you can’t see but you can feel it. I always feel sexier when I shave all the way up. DH never complains about hair but I know he prefers it when it’s smooth all the way up.
I don’t shave above the knee AS FREQUENTLY as I do my lower legs, but I do shave them. It all depends on the season, lol. If it’s shorts/bikini weather, then I shave the whole leg, up to the bikini line (which also means shaving to where the thigh becomes the butt!). If I’m doing yoga with my pants going 3/4 then I just shave what is exposed… :p My FI never notices and have never commented on my hairy legs, lol. And I’ve let the lower leg hairs grow out LONG. I have dark hair, but my leg hair is very sparse and fine (and my above the knee hair is very fine and not really noticeable).
only if I’m going to be wearing a swimsuit
@M1cha3la: I don’t shave above the knee, even my beautician advised against it. I sometimes use dipilitory creams over the summer, but last summer I had them waxed for the first time and it was super, so I think that’s the way forward for me when the sun comes out!
I have really light, thin & slow growing hair.. I barely have to shave my legs at all. Usually I just do below my knee, but every once in a while I do my whole leg.
From the throat down, I am hairless or at least neatly tidied up.
I usually dont in the winter lol. But, if were going to the beach with friends or were going to a nice dinner I will. I also won’t if Im going to the pool alone or the mall.
