Do you shave above the knees?

I only shave the lower part of my leg. Not sure whether that is normal or not. The thing is the hair in my upper legs is nice and soft. If I shaved it it would be really spiky.

What do you do?

well I do my armpits....grin

but I assumed you meant the top of my legs {grin]

I only shave the bottom half bu only because I don't wear knee length skirts and shorts
I have in the past shaved the whole leg
tbh my bikini leg grows far past the actual line so shaving my upper legs requires sheras blush

Only if I'm going swimming or wearing shorts. My knees are unbelievably hairy.

only for swimming - about 15 yrs ago I'd do my bikini line every day - what on earth was I thinking!

No just the bottom half up to the top of my knee's. I'm fair so you can't really see the hair on the top of my legs.

Here's Celine Dions legs. Do you think she does it?

moondog Sat 23-Aug-08 12:37:43

I never knew anyone dreamt of shaving above knees until I saw poor old Celine in that picture.
There's nothing wrong with her. It is the normal down we are all covered with.

MrsMattie Sat 23-Aug-08 12:37:54

If I'm going on holiday / going to be in a swimming costume - yes. Otherwise, nah.

posieflump Sat 23-Aug-08 12:39:37

Celine's are nothing compared to mine, the light just picked hers up, mine are ardk and long <shudder>

Gobbledigook Sat 23-Aug-08 12:39:46

I don't, but I'm not very hairy. THey don't look like Celine's (thank God)

maidamess Sat 23-Aug-08 12:46:31

I think Ceine was at the mercy of unflattering lighting there...
