Yes, otherwise I sweat a bit to much to my liking....

Ever? Or like, right before Mikvah? LOL

But really, I have an infant so I don't always have time to do it. It's like a self-care thing for me if I have an extra 5 min in the shower.

No. I didn't before I was 40, either. Actually, it never even occurred to me.

I voted other because I don't have hair growth under my arms, therefore no reason to shave/wax/laser.

Are you menopausal? At menopause, all my body hair--yes, you read that right, other than the hair on my head--stopped growing.

It’s the only part of me that I shave! Oddly, the hair is blonde and fine. Everywhere else it’s moderately thick, and I have to laser.

Same here. My legs and underarms are perfectly smooth.

I guess that's ONE good thing about menopause!

No because I’m never in a situation where anyone sees my underarms and I don’t have a lot anyway. Tried shaving it, I didn’t sweat any less. One less job for me.

The ONLY good thing about menopause. I SO looked forward to it, no more niddah, yadda yadda, and it's so unbelievably awful. I'd take back niddah and cramps in a heartbeat. And I have endometriosis!

Same. Have a few hairs that I can literally (and have in last minute desperation sometimes like an unexpected swim night) tweeze off.

Learning something new here, lol:
menopausal women don't have hair growth on legs and under arms? wow!

I'm not menopausal, getting regular monthly cycles, and no hair on legs and under arms. Hm.

I chose other.
I under forty and I shave, but only when I feel like it.
So I can skip shaving for a few months, and then shave every week for a few weeks...
I shave more in summer because of sweat

While we’re on the topic:
Is there any shaver that would give me a full clean and smooth shave without leaving prickly hair? Or will only laser do that?
