    I've been waxing since I was 17, but does the hair go away? Nooooooooooooo....it keeps coming back, dammit!

    The best results come from having fair skin and darker hair.

    It's worth every single $, KimMH. I'd do it again. Well worth it.

    I only had half the normal leg treatments ('cause we moved out-of-state) but it nuked about 2/3 of my leg hair permanently, and the rest that remains is a very light brown. It takes me all of two minutes to do all the female shaving and I only have to do so once a month.

    And I DON'T miss having to bleach the upper lip. Good riddance.

    Laser is awesome if you have the hair and complexion for it. Oh, and lidocaine cream or ointment helps tremendously if you're having it done in any sensitive areas.

    I haven't done myt legs but thankfully HRT did most of my body hair in. If I can ever afford it, I'll be having what's left on my legs zapped.

    I have a question for all of you. Has anyone ever tried NBE? Creams, pills...pumps? Did anything work? When I first got my magic pills my aunt asked me if they'd do anything for her and I told her that all I'm getting is what she already had in her own body. Sorry, auntie! She's like three years older than me. :lol:

    Now I'm looking for alternatives that are non-surgical.

    Why do sport bras, you know like the ones you pull over your head, but other type too, why do they have removable padding?
    Because of my build, I guess, these are always the most comfortable bras I can buy.
    I was them in a lingerie bag, but still have to spend extra time messing with the stupid padding cups that are all over inside The bag.
    Why do they have them like this???:brickwall::mad:

    They're supposed to provide extra support if you need it, otherwise just take them out.

    Now those little loops in jackets and tops, those are pointless and should be banished.

    Lol, extra support, or take up the extra room that my boobs aren't using.:biggrin:
    The loops are to hang the item up. Otherwise silly women's clothing will slide off of the hanger onto the floor of the closet. :wtf:

    I take them out and safety pin them over hangers at the shoulders for silks and delicates.

    Lol. Bought a fancy dress from goodwill that had the teeniest loops ever on the shoulders with snaps. Guess they’re to latch onto your bra or slip strap. So if your dress falls down it’s taking your undergarments with it? Lol.

    It still goes back to why men's clothes don't have them.
    Because
    Men don't wear ridiculous clothing as a rule. :shrug:

    Men can get away with wearing almost the exact same thing every day. My husband wears blue jeans and a dark polo (black, gray, navy) to work daily. It's not a company directive or uniform; it's what he chooses to wear. And no one cares. My sister, who works for the same company (different department), has a wardrobe of about a dozen different outfits that she continually re-accessorizes so that she's not wearing "the same thing" over and over. If she did, people would notice and comment, even if only behind her back. It's a ridiculous double standard. He has very little to keep up with, and she has to remember what she wore and how she wore it. Crazy.

    Lol.
    I have about 7 polo shirts, various dark colors, and tan and black and brown pants I wear everyday to work. No jewelry, I guess a various accessory might be that I rotate shoes because I heard that's better for you.
    I couldn't care less what anyone thinks about me and certainly not my clothes:lol:

    My dad is convinced that is the height of fashion lol. Of course my dad is 85 years old and never gave up his fanny pack. The grand kids tell hem he's cool again- he just waited out the fashion cycle.

    But for women, high heel sandals, tight stretch pants and tops, tube tops, strappy tops, skirts of any length, slip on shoes, carrying a purse, high heel shoes, dangle earrings, big bracelets, big necklaces.
    These are all very run if the mill things that women wear, sure some men wear some of these items too but in much lesser percentages than women.
    In addition men are at an overall less of a disadvantage due to size and strength than most women. ( not all but overall again by percentage, as above)
    Ridiculous clothing that puts one at a disadvantage in so many ways.
    Mostly it's women.

    What about when you try to hand a whatever silly name neckline that has like a 30 inch opening for the neck, or those dumb square/ rectangle neck opening tops?

    Yeah, for those there are hangers with clips.

    I do get what you're saying, overall, however I've heard a lot of men bemoan their lack of variety in fashion options.
