  • I’ve shaved my legs like 4 times in my life time since college I stopped shaving my armpits and I’ve never shaved my whoohoo and I’m 22 soooo.

  • Well good for you. I hope you enjoy a long and healthy life as a lesbian.

  • Something tells me her bush is permanently furry

  • I hate hairy!! Better shave Bec smoothly

  • I shave my legs and I just us the cheap razors and some soap.

  • Gross

  • I’m a guy and I shave my legs so I don’t see a problem

  • who spends a bunch of money to shave their legs tho. you can either use a razor and some conditioner, or just make your own wax or by some from the cvs. it isn't that deep, and it especially isnt that deep for someone that first off, doesnt even have any dark arm hair, or dark body hair in general. i really hate having hair on my body, so i jist get rid of it when i want to. or im too cold to shave.

  • Dont encourage girls to stop shaving you liberal hippy wackados what the fuck is wrong with you people?

  • I like my legs smooth though

  • I started Shaving my lady parts before I even knew that other females did such a thing. I just didn't like having hair there.

  • my legs are more hairy than my husband's legs.

  • I stopped bathing

  • Gross

  • I just subscribe I love it hairy

  • women shave because dirt builds up in the hair and makes your B.O. stank.

  • 🤢🤮

  • This isn’t very lady like ha get it

  • There's so many "it's not that deep" comments. Sure. It's not. Until you have to go outside. Until you have to go to work hairy. Until you show up on a date hairy. Then suddenly everyone has a problem with something that REALLY. SHOULDN'T. BE. DEEP. So practice what you preach.

  • Why is this in my recommended? And why am I watching?! This is the absolute worst teenage girl story that should take no more than 30 seconds.

  • Hairy haa🤣🤣🤣

  • So you "blame" Darwin that he made hairless women a thing but then also talk about hair-removal in the renaissance.... you know that he came about 100 years later?

  • I really like how smooth it feels against my sheets; that's literally why I wax

  • If she had thicker dark hair on her legs I bet she wouldn't be wearing those shorts. I'd rather see someone with real leg hair talk about this lol

  • Thank you Darwin.

  • So, you’re boycotting Gillette too?

  • I just shaved for the first time today. Not my best choice.

  • THANK YOU! So glad other women are doing this! Y'alls video helped inspire me to quit shaving-like I have ALWAYS wanted to! Glad you kept it up! #FreeYoself No shame in being mammalian!

  • I was pressured by an adult to shave... It was awkward... I'll usually only shave half way, and often only when I swim. I find the feeling of hair in the water or blowing in the wind really weird like being tickled, and I don't like it. Every other time of the year I don't care, except that ingrown hairs can be a pain.

  • I’ve been stopped for a couple years. I’ll do stuff occasionally like when I want but I’m fine with it, I’ll trim my bikini area because it’s a lot, my boyfriend doesn’t care that much so. I’m chilling and my skin has never loved me more.

  • Personally, shaved legs just feel nicer when I wear pants

  • I love the sass! Ever since I watched the no shaving for 30 days video Ladylike made I’ve finally been able to overcome the stigma and shame of not removing body hair and it’s been so freeing. Love these videos!

  • I have no problem with not shaving your legs.. I do have a problem with armpit hair though 😂 to me it just doesn’t look clean on EITHER gender

  • Who got a shaving add about the giraffe shaver

  • Frikin love your hair here! (head hair specifically lol)

  • nobody cares lol

  • Guys don’t like hairy women Want a guy = Shave Don’r want a guy = Don’t Shave If men are not a problem you’re good. If they are then you’re not good. We all adapt to what the others in society we’re trying to make an impression on find appealing.

  • She's my fav Lady Like lady. I wish you were in every video!

  • Who gives a fuck. If you wanna be a fuckin wolf then fuckin do it we dont care

  • Hair removal wasn't a concern until the 19th ... century here's here's some for removing hair

  • I haven't shaved in almost two years. Hubby don't care.

  • What about facial hair?

  • Nobody cares about your gross legs

  • Where’d did lady like get the sparkly bra in the background from?

  • I love when I shave my legs and cover them in body butter! It’s like a babies butt.

  • I totally agree women should only remove body if they want to.

  • I hate having to remove my hair but no way i would let it grow out!! Gross no man even myself would like that....

  • Your legs are beautiful Chantel💖

  • My legs feel naked on my sheets when i shave my legs, also who in the CRUD has hairy thighs

  • I just shave my legs for the comfort 😂 it’s so s m o o t h Also I shave my armpits cos it’s uncomfortable and it just feels unhygienic to me ( I don’t think it is but oh well lol it’s just personal preference ) I really don’t care what other girls do, not shaving or shaving doesn’t make you any less of a woman :/

  • I love girls with pubic hair

  • Having hair is a pretty manly trait though let’s be real

  • Over the years, I've to think of shaving as another form of body modification. I still feel a bit awkward about my body hair once in awhile but when I do shave it, it's for me. ...And because I live in a desert.

  • Same cuz I switched to laser removal

  • Ewe every woman in here who says she doesnt shave is disgusting and probably single.

  • It's winter...I don't shave during winter. Summer is a whole different story!

  • Shave your legs, you hairy beast 😋

  • Yeah I'm the only one who doesnt shave

  • I stopped shaving a year ago.

  • Did she just say “kish*”?

  • I've never shaved my legs in my life. There are hairs but they are soft and go blond in the sun. Stubble that growing back looks hairier than natural hair that's never been touched. .

  • P R E A C H !

  • So you rockin that natural goddess bush🤔 🍑 💦

  • Women have been getting rid of their hair around the world for a very long time..

  • Do what you want people :) My BF shaves a lot of himself, and I shave what I want when I want :) I don't understand who has a problem with this lmao

  • Omg, who cares😑

  • Dear Ladylike, *PLEASE* stop using scream sounds for your videos. It makes them inaccessible to people suffering from anxiety or PTSD.

  • I don't shave anything! I am holistic...God made my body to have hair...so I have hair!

  • I don't know why this was recommended to me. I don't care. You're not special for choosing to be alone and confusing your own leg for one of your many cats.

  • So you wanna talk about shaving hun ,well I got 99 problems but shaving ain’t 1 .

  • 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  • Most men on broadway shave their body hair and some film stars as well

  • I have light hair on my legs so i rarely shave unless i have a nice event or over the summer. I pretty much only shave my armpits.

  • Some ladies have thick black ware wolf pelts from waist to toe, and we need to get rid of that nonsense.

  • Does the carpet match the drapes?

  • Sooo you were too appealing before, so you thought you’d dial it down a couple notches? Got it.

  • I just don’t like the feeling of it, I’m just uncomfortable with hair on my legs. I definitely respect people who don’t, tho. I just like my legs smooth😊

  • GROSS!

  • So what you want to tell us DIRECTLY WANT TO ASK WHATS THE POINT???😑

  • Gross, barftastic, unladylike.

  • I like to feel smooth

  • I remember my mother was young Came From Italy she was about 13 she told me I'm so glad I'm in America back in Italy they don't shave their armpits they don't shave their legs they don't use deodorant they smell horrible she said when they went out to eat at a restaurant the the waitress have hairy legs hairy armpits and there and they didn't have deodorant and the restaurant was so hot it's smelled like a locker room

  • Cause hairy legs and armpits on women is grooooooose!

  • *hair has entered the chat*


  • Can we talk about how good Chantel looks?! She's glowing and beautiful

  • You are wearing shorts and it s january... You don t have winter there?!?!???

  • I don't shave my legs and armpits cuz I'm lazy and i dont see the point if it grows back.

  • I bet it looks like you got buckwheat in a leg lock!

  • cuz women leg hair is gross

  • If women were removing hair during the Renaissance, then you can’t fully blame Darwin...

  • I totally understand the message she is conveying. It's your body, you get to decide what you want to do with it, so nobody else should make fun of you for embracing your body for what it is. I used to be bullied in grade 3 because of my body hair and continued until grade 6. It was mostly 3 or 4 guys and even said that I should win an award for having the most hair on my arms. But every other girl had hair on their arms too, it just wasnt noticable. I shaved later on and I did like the smooth feeling but it was so I wasn't bullied by others. Having body hair is not gross, it's just a natural part of life. Guys have hair but so girls, it's normal. For all those comments down below, not every girl will shave their legs for guys, they do it for themselves. Same with makeup, it's fun to do as it's like art.

  • I support this

  • Those socks tho

  • I haven’t shaved my legs or armpits for 4 years. My hair is pretty dark.. but I don’t really care. People think I’m trying to make a statement but I’m literally doing nothing at all. I’m just existing in my natural state. I’m pretty sure that should be like, the opposite of a statement.

  • Honestly, I don't shave my legs. The reason being that I can't be bothered to deal with the societal expectations. Body hair is natural and I'm not an effing contortionist.

  • Dam you are very beautiful n sexy....that's nothin to be ashamed of beautiful...that's just the rich blood in your system......

  • I love to wear bras. They make me feel feminine and sexy. As for shaving...I do not do it a lot....Only if I am wearing a dress without tights. Otherwise, LET THE HAIR GROW!

  • I used to not shave during the winter but I go to the gym and wear shorts and a T back shirt.
