Personally I don't care if other women shave their pits or not. I have also done so since my teens and it's just a habit. Men shave their faces but at least I don't have to shave my armpits or legs that often as I'm not particularly hairy (as far as I'm concerned anyway). I have friends who get just about everything waxed and hey good luck to them but no way in hell am I going through that much pain AND HAVING TO PAY FOR IT ON TOP OF THAT in the name of beauty UGH! I think in general people who don't shave their pits tend to give off more body odour even if they do shower/bath every day. I'm so glad I don't use public transport as I hear some horror stories from my colleagues about smelly armpits on the tube on the way to work. That would just about do me in LOL! And regarding a comment above, yes, I've often heard that French women do not shave but I've never had the cheek or need to ask them if they do or not. I worked in a French company for quite a few years and can't say that I noticed my French colleagues were particularly non-shaved! x

Although women equally get underarm hair but it's not really acceptable in other's culture. Culture plays a role here. Because culture dictate what is norm. Anyway, personally, I think that women who have hairy armpit look unsanitary/unhygienic. It also denotes masculinism. It's okay for men to be hairy but not for women. Women should look clean and it includes bare underarm.

I dont know that i would feel embarrassed, but i'd feed weird. I mean we are really used to seeing women with clean underarms and legs, i would be embarrassed if it was ME with the hairy armspits! I've seen a lady with really burry underarms, i guess she was probably homeless, and wearing a tank top. and that was the first and only time i've ever seen a woman with hairy armpits. I can honestly say i was SHOCKED and i had to make myself not stare. That is bad for me to say isn't it?! But it was my first time seeing a hairy lady!! I'm sorry scary hairy homeless lady where ever you are. LOL.

I think that is a decision that you should make. I like short hair and I don't like to color my hair. However, everyone is different. If you are used to long hair I guess short hair bothers you. As we get older I find it easier to have my hair cut than to let it grow as I don't want to be bothered with brushing it and styling it.
