Ladies if you've ever found yourself coveting another woman's handbag or coo-ing over her Louboutins, you'll be pleased to know there is another Must Have Item to crave this season: the 1970s bush.

Yes, according to an intimate that investigated the underworld of women's pubes, the bald porn-star chic look is soooo last season.

Of course, the grooming habits of our fellow females shouldn't drive our own choices - Cindy From Zumba's star-shaped pubic line shouldn't make you get the stencil out any time soon - but it is important that women know they have a choice. But often they do not.

Reviving the To Shave Or Not To Shave debate is far from beating an old feminist drum - with the news that girls as young as 11 or 12 are getting Brazilian waxes, the issue remains at the heart of what it means to be a woman and needs to be discussed.

Most thought: 'This is one small thing that we can do.'"
