Something tells me it would not trim as long as I would want Alix. I could not picture any lady having hair on their body anywhere, but their head, that would be as long as my modest beard. I had a friend who swore by his girlfriends electric razor for a short cut though. I gave him plenty of hell for using a cute hot pink razor for years!

Not to be indelicate but I'm having trouble picturing why women might want to select the length of the hair they're trimming rather than shaving it off.

GB, that particular shaver's variants are from about 1/8in to about 3/4in in length. I'm not LOOKING at it right now, but thats what I can recall.

Andy, I'm going to try to answer delicately. Its a bikini trimmer, and it is now de rigueur to trim ALL areas. I understand men are also trimming all body hair to be "tidy".

I would agree that it goes up to about 3/4 inch.

I'm afraid I can't answer any more delicately than Alix on the other part

I understand that. What I don't understand is the various lengths. I figured it would be either not trimmed at all or shaved.

Are the different lengths a fashion statement?

Ummm...well lets see. I'm afraid to delve too deeply into this! Its not an all or nothing proposition anymore. I don't think "fashion statement" is necessarily the best descriptor, but close enough. The current media trend is that we should all be trimmed etc. Check for a commercial that might illustrate better than I can.

You could apply that same statement to beards but usually it is desirable to have a trimmed beard because it looks more groomed.

Gee Alix, thanks for the video. That explains why the shrubs out front keep changing shape.
