Women in -Sefira

Question:

I feel very uncomfortable, with hair on my legs, as summer is approaching I will be wearing stockings, this makes me very nervous.

A previous answer to another question :Waxing, and shaving other parts of the body, according to a number of poskim is not permitted unless there is a specific need.

What makes it a specific need?
A great discomfort?

 

Answer:

Hello,

What the poskim say as a need, refers to a married woman or a girl in shidduchim that has a need to look attractive for her husband etc. What you are describing is the uncomfortable feeling of not shaving. Men also feel this when they don’t shave, but this is part of the feeling of mourning.

Best wishes
