The only times I shaved was when other people would see my leg hair. Now I will just show it off to society I guess. Gonna buy a capri jeans soon, can't wait to see te response of my sexist relatives who luckely live far away!

(Just wanted to post this out of excitement lol hope this can inspire some other women this summer!)

You might not notice at first but you'll tolerate hot weather substantially better with body hair. It gives your sweat a lot more surface area for evaporative cooling.

You may not actually sweat less but it won't stick around for nearly as long.

I noticed the same thing with armpit hair last summer, definitely recommend.

Yeah, I noticed it also helped mitigate smell, not gone but lesser. I tend to sweat pretty heavily anywhere above 68 deg. lol

Yep any sweat that is soaked up by the hair and then evaporates can't hang around on your skin long enough to be consumed by bacteria.
