Shorts, sleeveless tops, and tiny swimsuits—don't offend sensibilities by being as hairy as a cat. Whether you've got a low limit for pain, or a high one, there's a fuzz-busting plan for you.

quick fixes

shavers

Best for: Girls under time pressure, or with a low tolerance for pain.
Pros: Easy, painless, cheap.
Cons: Hair starts growing back the next day.
Tips: Shave in the shower with shaving cream or creamy soap. Keep hand steady, and shave legs in an upward direction (from ankle to knee or thigh), and underarms in a slanted downward direction.

creams

Best for: Girls who have shaky hands.
Pros: Moisture from cream keeps skin soft, hair grows back softer, and in two or three days.
Cons: Possible skin irritation, and not as cheap as shavers.
Tips: Apply cream before you shower and always do a patch test first a day before.

semi-permanent

waxes (hot, cold, or oriental)

Best for: Lazy girls who can tolerate pain.
Pros: Hair doesn't grow back for weeks, and it's perfect for all parts of the body (legs, underarms, bikini area, face)
Cons: Can be very painful.
Tips: If you're a waxing virgin, have it done professionally first so everything after that is maintenance.
