Does everyone who wears a shpitzel shave underneath?
(If you find that question too personal you don't have to answer.)

I wish I could wear a shpitzel! They’re so pretty and elegant and refined! But I’m a BT and my rebbetzin wears a covered sheitel so I do too.

Where do you buy them? Are they hard to put on? Do you ever wish you didn’t wear them? Could I wear them too or am I right that I should wear what my rebbetzin wears?

I'm not going to disclose where I live.
shpitzels are basically a relatively recent Satmar invention, so by definition any shpitzel wearer will have at least some affiliation to Satmar.
you can find shpitzel wearers in any place Satmar people live, pretty much.

So there's this woman that functions sort of like a sheitel macher. she usually would work out of her home and you'd call for an appointment. She usually stocks the Shpitzelech; theyre not custom. they come in about 4-5 different shades and you can choose the closest "hair" color. For each color she'd have several cap sizes (the shpitzel hairpiece in the front is usually sewn onto a wig lace cap) and you try it on for your right size. if you're between sizes she can pinch it in and sew it down to make it a bit smaller

The levels of stringencies in the shpitzel community is so diverse by now that there are very many who easily have access to the internet/smartphones. Pls understand that not all Shpitzel wearers were given a choice to wear it so it really doesn’t reflect their level of frumkeit.

(If posters will continue to harp on this I will respectfully bow out!)

being as I said that virtually all shpitzel wearers are satmar affilliated, you'd expect the answer to be yes, and probably 99.9% do. but of course no guarantees. I personally know a couple of exceptoins

Are you wearing it by choice or because there would be major backlash if you took it off?

I personally shave as I find it very uncomfortable to have hair underneath.
