The Tidy Effing V: WTH


This gal wears many hats in case you didn't know. I'm an author, speaker, social media maven, reviewer, sassoligist, blogger, vlogger, parolee...But one thing that compliments me in everything I do is my curiosity. So help me answer the question that has been driving me bat shit bonkers. How the hell did women in the Regency era and earlier get a "tidy little V?"

To be honest...I totally go where ever the fiction goes without a thought of my own...and your question will most likely change the world of Regency Romance fiction as we know it *grins* Thanks Bri (still laughing)

Did some research for you Bri. LOL. Apparently Regency women DIDN'T fuss over leg hair or V-hair or even armpit hair and those authors talking about smooth legs are thinking strictly of the modern-day idea of women being hairless. In fact, I found an article that says women started shaving their armpit hair first in the 1900's when sleeveless dresses hit the runway. Leg hair wasn't a worry until hemlines rose in the 1920's but it's reported that women didn't much care about leg hair as much as armpit hair. And I'm sure you know, pubic hair wasn't much an issue until way later - the 80's and 90's when mini skirts and short shorts where all the rage. LOL
