Who will rid me of these troublesome pubes?

I am a woman who hates pubic hair. Can deal with it on others, but not on me. After many years of occasional waxes (painful, expensive, humiliating) and electric shower razor shaving (gross stubble,) I'd really love to celebrate the end of COVID, when it happens, by just getting rid of it forever. But I'm seeing conflicting information about whether this is a thing that is safe/effective to do, and I'm looking for anecdata. [more inside]

Moderately stylish women's casual/waking shoes

I'm *finally* going to force myself to go on more walks around my neighborhood this spring. However, I don't own a good pair of shoes for walking long distances in? I hate the look of running shoes, so if you own a pair of moderately stylish women's casual sneakers/walking shoes, what kind of shoe are they? [more inside]

Non-surgical gender affirmation procedures in NYC?

I am edging into the waters of making some small non-surgical changes to my appearance, in order to lessen my gender dysphoria. Specifically, I am interested in dermal fillers in order to create a more masculine jawline. These are of course widely available. However, as I am non-binary AFAB and don't have a lot of practice describing what I want in regards to my body, I would be more comfortable in a queer space where the practitioners understood I wasn't just going for a traditionally femme, cosmetic look.

How do I find socks that fit?

I cannot for the life of me find socks that fit and don't constantly get twisted around my foot or slip down. I wear women's 9.5 shoes but have very wide ankles and calves, so socks that fit my foot generally don't fit my ankles/calves (even with folding them down), and socks that seem to fit both always end up twisting around or slipping down my foot, which is uncomfortable and irritating. What are your favorite crew socks for wide ankles? Merino preferred, but I'm open! [more inside]

Lightweight, high quality hoop and other dangly earrings?

I'm on the hunt for lightweight, high quality hoop and other dangly earrings that I can order online. By "high quality" I mean earrings that won't get discolored/broken/bent after a handful of wears. For hoops, something about the size as these chunky medium hoops from Madewell. [more inside]

UK filter: simple, dark coloured knickers? Not black? Affordable?

I have a whole drawerful of everyday black knickers, which seem to all be giving up the ghost at once. I'm trying not to wear so much black, so I've been looking for plain, dark-coloured cotton keks to buy in bulk. So far, the choices seem very limited / non-existent. What I think is a not unreasonable list of wants under the fold. [more inside]

Inexpensive (cheap!) women's clothing shops

I recently had weight loss surgery and am now down into the size range of normal shops. My go-to when I was still plus-sized were sites like You can get great basics (which is about all I wear) for very little money. And their selection is rather large, with the same garment in lots of colors in addition to many different styles available. [more inside]

Blow Dryers

Do expensive blow dryers offer a significant advantage over cheaper ones? Is the difference still significant if I diffuse my hair primarily? For expensive, I’d say in the $100-200 range - I’m not considering anything more than that. For cheap, anything in the $30 and above range. I have very thick, dense curly hair.

The most comfortable mens' pants...?

Nearly a year of not wearing office/dress pants as I work remotely has left me with the realization that the few casual pants I do own are unsuitable for sitting for long periods of time, and I'm tired of exclusively wearing sweats. I've seen a few previous Ask Qs that focus on jeans or work pants, but I'd broaden the question to: What are the most comfortable, currently available pants, i.e., non-sweatpants, you can recommend for a man of average height/weight? Thanks.

Inspired by the sun coming out in London today: My all-time favourite T-shirt is falling to bits and likely won't survive another summer. Can you help me replace it? Images of the shirt front: here, a closeup on the cartoon here, and the creator's signature here. [more inside]
