Long Hair, Don’t Care! Women Explain Why They’re Proud To Show Off Their Armpit Hair

Despite the fact that every human being grows body hair, only women are expected to get rid of theirs — especially under their arms. But as we enter more progressive times, these women are here to inspire others by showing the world their perfectly natural underarms, hair and all. Take a look at these gorgeously confident women who’ve bared their pits on Instagram and stories of other women who’ve done the same! One girl on Instagram has grown so confident, she doesn’t even notice people at the gym who are staring at her pits!

Women Are No Longer Living By Other People’s Standards

Anna (@hopingforhappy) promotes body positivity on Instagram. When some followers were quick to criticize her for her apparent armpit hair, she had this to say: “I got numerous comments, like the one on the picture, asking why I don’t shave. My problem is this. If I were a man, I would not have to justify why I have hair on my body… But people don’t see that. They see hair and they see standards that they feel I, as a woman, am not meeting up to [and] to them that isn’t okay. But it should be.”
