    Just wanted to find out who here has shaved armpits? If you shave it, why? And if you don't shave it, also why?

    If you shave your pits, what do you do to soothe razor burn/bumps/irritation?

    My pits are not shaved. I have done it in the past a couple of times. I'm thinking I might go back to doing it again. icon_wink.gif

    I trim mine. I don't shave because one would have to keep-up with it to avoid itching, I did in college though. I think it's nice to keep it trimmed but still have some. I also think a little hair gives a certain sex appeal to the male body. icon_wink.gif

    I trim, but have never shaved them. Unless you're a competitive swimmer, I think it looks a bit too odd to have them smooth.

    I have before, but not regularly. I am, however, going to try a different look for the coming year: smooth chest, much to my boyfriend's chagrin. Before it was just the stomach because it never grew in uniformly, but I am going for more definition in 2008. Lack of chest hair gives me a bit more of a idea of progress, in my experience. If you are going to do it, I wouldn't suggest Nair for Men. It's really a bit much in terms of strength. Get Veet. I've used it *everywhere* and it works.

    "And if you don't shave it, also why?"

    I don't have a lot of body hair, and my underarm hair grows in narrow strips. It's not like there are huge shag rugs under there, so I see no need to shave or even trim.

    I shave them regularly because it helps with odor control. Sweat gathers on the hairs and ferments which produces that lovely musky scent. Plus, I like the way it feels under there.

    I have tried to trim mine before with scissors - not too bad on the left one using my right hand but can't seem to figure out how to do the right side with my left hand... any tips from those who trim?

    I shave mine. It comes mainly from the years of ballet dancing, I didnt like seeing it in the mirror when i had to put my arms above my head. And as i developed what little muscle i do have i found the line more appealing because it wasn't broken by armpit hair.

    I trim mine every other month. It doesn't grow back very fast and isn't as itchy as when I shave/trim the lower pubes. Sometimes I shave it completely off, sometimes just enough to not scare the locals. I hate seeing jungles of pit hair on people.

    As a rule, I know it's time to shave when I start getting extra pitty.

    shave here. I think it helps with sweating and odor. Since the deorderant goes directly to the skin.

    Shave and trim. Depends upon my mood and how much work I want to do.

    I used to shave when I first started working out in high school, but switched to trimming instead. It's less tedious to do and doesn't irritate my skin during the aftergrowth. I only recommend shaving for any part of you body, except for you head and face; which you can do whatever to. But I never wax and can't tell you one way or another about it.

    I don't shave my pits....never have. Why...because I don't shave anywhere on my body except my face/haircuts.

    I can imagine its got to feel damn itchy especially under your pits where there is always skin to skin contact.

    Nothing against those who shave...but shaving is definitely not my thing.

    I've had my underarm hair permanently removed. I used to shave down for swimming but, like the look and feel so much I removed it permanently.

    I trim mine. I can get pretty hairy and when I start to stink because the deoderant isn't reaching my skin, I know it's time to trim them down. I just hope nobody else notices before I do. icon_redface.gif LOL

    I trim it out about monthly and shave it once in a while, usually in the summer. I don't remember it ever feeling "itchy" except when it was too long.
    In the summer, I actually get visible waxy deposits building up on the pit hairs. This crud is not removed by casual scrubbing in the shower and it's disgusting. It's just easier to remove the hair.

    i like to keep them shaved...it makes me feel cleaner. I do get some irritation the first day but nothing really huge.

    Hairy pits are really sexy -- am I alone?
