He plays footy and cycles, so used to shave a bit and has started now he's playing again - I suspect he's happy to have the excuse but it's just not socially acceptable to admit it. I tried growing my legs out completely this winter and hated it - I'm hairy and they got long enough to curve back and the end of each hair would itch the skin. May just be what you're used to, but made me feel more like my choice to shave is not just aesthetic.

    DH tried waxing for the first time in last year's pre season - needless to say he went straight back to razors after that agony. I only ever tried it once as well.

    I really envy women who find epilators less painful. To me it's like slowly drawing out the process - I covered about a 5cm patch on my calf then promptly put that torture device on eBay!

    I have no idea when my DD will need to shave as she's super blonde. She's maturing early like I did though and I know I will not be making her wear light coloured bathers to school swimming once she has short and curlys (thanks mum!).

    I always would suggest wax first. Wax hurts but it is over quicker initially. Then epilate regularly and you barely feel it.

    I epilate. I just grit my teeth and got through the first few times and now I just hit it whenever I see a few stray hairs pop up. So I'm doing it more often, like once a week I guess but only pulling out a couple of hairs so can barely feel it
