carowl :  it seems attention seeking at this point as many others here have said too.  Not worth arguing about though. OP will enjoy the wedding and many other events no doubt, in her sleeveless attire …

mrstodd2bee :  again, why is it attention seeking? The fact that other people agree with you doesn’t somehow negate the fact that what you’re accusing OP of is unfounded (in fact it’s an example of pretty atrocious”mob mentality” bullying behaviour). She sought out comfort and understanding with this post, and has (several times) explained as such. Should she just sit back and allow people to criticize her body further? Because when she responds you accuse her of being attention seeking?

Ok so I haven’t read any of the responses so far so my question is pretty straightforward…. Why don’t you just shave?

I’m in the party that if body hair makes you uncomfortable that says more about you than the person with the body hair. We have been conditioned to think body hair is gross, so when someone, especially a woman, attempts to push the boundary, she’s seen as attention seeking. 

Why is confidence to go against the norm attention seeking?

anyway. Just do you. If all she and the family is noticing on her wedding day if your armpit hair, welp, maybe she shouldn’t be getting married. Honestly I was so focused on my husband when I got married that someone could have work Britney Spears’ rhinestone outfit from her Toxic video and I wouldn’t have noticed.

ecrisrien :  okay, to be completely honest; I might have a giggle but I wouldn’t care, let alone be offended! If I were you, I’d grow it out just to say F you to the haters. Half the time, I don’t shave just because i’m lazy!

my opinion: yes, people will judge you, whether that judgement is unfounded or not is irrelevant. of course people *should* be able to walk around in their natural state if they want, but just because it *should* be okay does not reflect the reality of societal expectations. 

now you’ve just gotta determine which pull is stronger—the discomfort you’ll feel from your perceived judgement from others, or the discomfort you’ll feel if you alter your body and go against your own personal beliefs to fit into the societally acceptable imagery of a young woman.

easy? not really.

simple? 100%
