Shied away from dresses.

Someone wrote…

I shied away from dresses for a long time… but since growing out my armpit and leg hair, they don’t nearly seem so bad.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    YES! I’ve noticed the same too, with my body hair being out and free, I feel much more balanced when I wear dresses, as opposed to how I felt when I still shaved etc. Kinda interesting.

    Haha, I’m currently feeling comfortable in a pretty dress for the first time in years and this describes my situation perfectly. Indeed, in my experience I’ve felt more balanced in all manner of dress since quitting shaving :) It certainly is interesting

    Same here. I bought my first dress this summer, after having shaved my head and let the rest of me grow. Somehow I feel better about wearing it. Less naked.

    i’ve liked wearing dresses for since forever, but now since not shaving i LOVE wearing them. most especially with boots of some kind.

    I agree so much. I like dressing ‘girly’ so much more with body hair… I like the oppositeness of it.
