    How often do you shave your legs?
    In short pant season, I do almost daily.
    But in pants and tights, it's more like weekly so my skin doesn't dry out.

    Usually every 2-3 days in the summer. In the winter, usually when I can't stand it :lol: Typically, once a week. But, I have been known to stretch it further.
    I am also known to shave from the knee down when in a hurry!

    I'm blessed with almost white blonde leg hair. Even down this far south, I have been known to go WEEKS without shaving. It's been 2 weeks at the moment, and I was out all day in shorts.

    About every other day. In the winter, every 3-4 days or honestly--when I think about it.
    I did find a new razer recently. It has the moisturizer/shave bar thing all around the razer head. I got the cucumber melon kind and it smelled so good! The razor was pretty good also, but I can't see paying that much everytime that bar thing runs out, which seems to be pretty quickly. I think it was Schtick, not positive though and too lazy/tired to go check. :yawn:

    I have to shave them everyday....can't stand the pickle effect. I have that same razor and the refills are quite expensive. It's called Intuition. I also bought the Venus one the other day and it shave just as good and the little gel strip is less awkward.

    In capri & skirt weather I shave every day. In the winter, I still shave every other day, maybe every three days. I hate prickly legs. I also wear skirts & dresses in winter as well, and I have really white legs and black hair . . . shaving nightmare.

    I shave every other day, at least. 98% of the time it is every day. It is short season most of the time here and I hate the feeling of the hair catching the sheets. I use the Venus Breeze so it only takes a minute to go over them in the morning.

    The biggest reason I don't shave often is because I can't stay in the shower for very long. Steam makes my physcially ill...literally. If I spend longer than 3-5 minutes in the shower I will start puking (I can't do hot tubs either). Somehow, I've managed to figure out how to wash and condition my long thick hair every day as well as wash the rest of me and shave under my arms in under 5 minutes, but in order to shave, I have to get out of the shower, let the room "defog", then come back and shave. It's too much of a pain, so I don't do it often.

    I shave every other day during shorts and skirts season, which is most of the year here. But I alternate: one time I'll shave from just above my knees and below (my thigh hair is sparse and blonde, and I don't wear miniskirts or short shorts very often, so I don't bother too much with the top part of my leg) and the next time I just shave below my knees.

    Does anyone else seem to have a problem with missing that one little patch for a few times in a row and when you finally notice, the hair in that area is like an inch long?? :eek: That happens to me on the side of my right kneecap and sometimes on the back of my ankles near my achilles because I am TERRIFIED of cutting myself there.... I did it once and it was awful.

    I used to shave every day when I was younger in shorts season. Than probably twice a week in the winter. Now it is probably about once a week. And the hair on my legs is dark. I don't care what people think haha.

    Depends if I'm single or dating :lol:
    If I'm dating, every other day.
    If I'm single, maybe every other week.

    I am very fortunate, when I was younger, the hair on my legs was very dark and thick. My mom let me start shaving pretty young (I started my period when I was 9 and shaving right after). By the time I was 20, though, the hair on my legs had really lightened up and gotten much thinner. Now, I mostly just have to shave around my ankles. The rest is so fine and light it takes weeks to be able to even see or feel it. Even around my ankles, it is just sprigs.

    Most of the time, every day. When it is cold, maybe once every week or two...

    I miss one hair in my pit even though I hunt for it each time. :lol:
    I swear it either hides or grows an inch overnight.

    It depends on the season and if I have a boyfriend. haha.

    In the summer, almost every day.

    In the winter - only when I absolutely have to.

    If I am dating someone, I will any time I see them.

    Since i Have been with current DBF for almost 2 years now, I am starting to get to the point where I don't care if he sees or feels a little stubble.

    I have to shave every day or I feel hairy. The only time I don't shave is when I am really sick.
