28-year-old Sonia Cytrowska, from Poland decided she wanted to stop shaving her body hair in defiance of societal expectations on women to stay hairless.
She’s hoping images of her body will inspire other women. Even her husband struggled with the change initially, but she now claims he’s grown to love the change for her.
Would you ever try long term?
New post is coming on my polish blog! (Link in bio) 💛 Dear followers, with this photo I'd like to thank you for beeing here, with me and my hairy project. It is 1 year since I stopped shaving✌💪🙏 Legs are still the most uncomfortable place on my body for me (because of hair). But I know that strong comes with time. So I will wait and try to accept myself more and more with every day 😉 When I appeared here on Insta I would never think that I after 1 year I will have almost 2 000 followers, and that my blog will have 3 300 views by different people, and my posts will be shared more than 200 times. 😵😍😳 Thank you for supporting me! ❤ You are awesome! 😊 #1year #anniversary #blogger #bodyhairmovement #polishgirl #polishwoman #bodyhairdontcare #bodyhair #leghair #hairybody #hairywoman #mirrorselfie #bodypositive #followers #legs #leghairdontcare #stopshaving #naturalbeauty #proud #strong #wgdyni #niegolesie #rocznica #dumna #silna #odważna #kobieta #blogerka #owlosodprawdy #gdyniamojemiasto
Some time ago I gave myself a word that I won't remove my bodyhair unless I will know that shaving them is entirely my decision. I wanted to stop ads brainwashing my mind & give up thinking "I should shave because everyone is doing this". This is my task list which I made to achieve my goal: -get to know how my body hair will look without any interference, - reach the acceptance to all my body hair while looking in the mirror, - stop being ashamed in front of the others, even if they whisper and stare at me, - be free from need to explain "oh it's just project, I know it looks terrible/unsexy/masculine/etc. It's temporary you know", - be free from belief that I have to fulfill someone's expectation about my appearance, - and finally be free from fear that others will reject me if they will know how I REALLY look like. I knew I will need some time to do my job. It's been more than a year now! ⏳ How about your hairy journey Dear Woman? How do you feel about being unshaved? What do you think about other hairy women? Maybe you want add some items to the list? 💚 *second pic is without any filter #goals #bodyhair #bodyhairdontcare #acceptance #challenge #bodyhairmovement #natural #realme #hairywoman #naturalwoman #stopshaving #bodyacceptance #societystandards #beauty #beautystandards #questioning #finding #thetruth #realwoman #nofilter #poland #wgdyni #niegolesie #natura #kobieta #wyzwanie #cel #akceptacja #cialo #naturalne
Today I woke up with one though: "I should SHAVE MY LEGS!" 😖 Today I had a dream in which my female friends and I had a photoshoot 📸, like some kind of special day celebrating our friendship 👭👭👭. We were almost naked, we were only covered with white blankets, and the scenery was delicate, bright and beautiful! 😍 We were in good mood and we were just ourselves, like nothing need to be hidden. Ofcourse I was 100% natural and hairy and noone cares... except the photographer. He took few pics and suddenly said: "OMG have a look on those legs! 😱 (Pointing at me) They are so dark! YOU CAN'T SHOW THIS LEGS TO THE WORLD, YOU ARE SO GROSS! 😲" Then I woke up. 😧 I really wanted to go to the bathroom and shave everything. 😞 For a moment I felt like a hairy monster who don't feet to the world, not like a "modern woman I should be". I gave myself 5 more minutes ⏳ to think again what I WANT TO DO, not should. I realized that I like my hairy armpit, my full hairy eyebrows, my soft hairy pubes, even my hairy belly and back.❤ I accept them and I am not ashamed of them. ❤So should I leave all of them and shave only legs?? I was confused. 😕 I asked my husband what he thinks about it and he gave me an advice 😉 "Put on black tights, you have some time until it will be summer.☀ You don't have to decide now." So here I am 😁 undercover, drinking the best coffee in all city & searching for a good reason in my head not to shave after winter 😊 #bodyhairdontcare #hairylegs #nightmare #tights #naturalwoman #hairywoman #bodyhairmovement #nofilter #advice #wgdyni #gdynia #coffee #vegan #feminism #blackandwhitecoffee #golićczyniegolić
