Caught you, naughty girl!
Bare all of your legs that is. If your circumstances allow it. I can’t sing its praises high enough (though I have noticed my voice is more high pitched these days.)
For me it comes a close 3rd to the wearing of a bra and forms, a skirt, and shoes. Skirts, dresses and lingerie feel SOOOOO much nicer gliding across freshly shaved legs. And they must be freshly shaved to get max benefit. Even man trousers feel better.
I used to only shave the tops of my legs so hold ups would hold up longer. One day I took the plunge and shaved a bit lower, then lower – then to hell with it – all of it.
Oh girl what a revelation it was!
But the greatest benefit was a little unexpected. My confidence level going out shot thru the roof. In summer I used to go out underdressed in shorts and shirt. This meant I couldn’t wear hosiery, so I had to go bare(hairy) legged. It made me so self conscious when wearing shorter skirts and dresses. Everybody immediately gets their binoculars out and focuses on your hairy legs, even though I was convinced that at 25 yards no one would notice. I noticed!
So – I avoided close contact. I would be “made” immediately. This was seriously holding me back.
So shaved legs and my thigh length denim skirt for my first post-shave walk.
OMG! What a difference it made! I was no longer scared of joggers or cyclists overtaking me from behind. No anxious glances over my shoulder, or scooting off to the side. Or even coming from the front! My confidence level had sky rocketed! Wow! I even dared to walk across the car park.
Now I arrive at the car park fully en-femme, let my dog out and walk where I please. Well mostly. I am still nervous about groups of men or teenagers. I still do a risk assessment. But Darby and Joan? I walk past them with a smile and a “Good morning.”
To say it has changed my life and my enjoyment is an understatement. If only I had done it years ago. But back then my SO would have divorced me. Now she accepts me as long as I am private.
It took her about six weeks to notice I had shaved, even though I wore shorts every day. The downside is that I have to shave at minimum every other day.
Now autumn is here I will have to start wearing opaque hold ups I suppose – except maybe on a warm sunny day. I do so luv to walk in the fresh air bare legged.
How about you? Tempted to “bare all” – next spring/summer?
