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).

@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.
