We are due to go to a wedding at the end of August and DD1 is going to be wearing this dress

She is very dark haired and has had hairy legs for quite a while. I noticed today however that she is now getting hair under her arms. She hasn't asked but would it be a good idea to ask if she wants it removed before hand?

If she did remove it what would be the best way? shave, electric shaver, removal cream?

gosh this topic has been done a few times.

basically Yes if she wants no if she doesn't and what ever you like lol

personally my dd2 has an elective lady shave since she was 9 and started being bothered. electric because it keeps her from blocking the bathroom and she can't cut herself!

hair is such a non issue, though just remind her stubbly attends aren't good...

My DD had been plucking her armpit hair for some time before I noticed how red it was. She didn't always hit the hairs...Anyway, she's now got a battery operated lady shaver thing which was about a fiver from Tesco.
recently, she used some immac. Immac gives the closest shave.
