Despite this website being mostly dedicated to back shaving I have reviewed and used devices that help extend your reach either for back shaving or shaving other hard-to-reach areas of the body. The point being is I have used them and can speak on their effectiveness and not just point to one specific item for purchase. So if you are looking at how to shave your legs when pregnant and want the best tool for the job I will recommend what I feel will do the best job and list all the razor extenders for which you could decide for yourself as well.
Ladies, let’s get to it.
The Problem Is Mobility
Captain Obvious here, I know. The beauty of pregnancy is growing another life within you and this beauty impedes your mobility once the baby gets past a certain weight and size. Daily tasks and routines become more difficult the further along with pregnancy. Bending over to shave your legs can become difficult or impossible with a regular size leg shaver.
Maintaining hygiene helps boost confidence and mood and shaving your legs can allow you to wear what you want when you want.
What You Need Is A Long Handled Razor Extension
More precisely you need a quality extension razor handle that holds a razor securely in place and is highly adjustable to conform to whatever angle you need it to. All the long handle razors mentioned below will hold a razor very securely and not move unnecessarily when shaving.
You may even find after pregnancy that you prefer to use the longer handle for ease and more comfort. My wife enjoys the ease of less stretching and comfort when I “loaned” her an extension handle to try out and shave her legs with.
Even If You Are Not Limited In Mobility
I asked my wife to give it a whirl with a bunch of these razor extenders and she found out she likes using them very much and actually prefers shaving her legs with them as opposed to using regular size razor for shaving her legs. She is not pregnant but enjoys the lack of bending as well as stretching when using a razor extender.
The Best Long Handled Razors Extensions
1. Smooth Reach Long Razor Extension Handle
My favorite extension handles that I own and have used and are my top recommendation for pregnant women who need help shaving their legs. This is number #1! It works the best out of all the other razor extension handles I have reviewed.
You can read my full write-up here, Smooth Reach Long Razor Extention Handle Review.
This is very adjustable in length and angle, as the handle extends to various lengths and the top portion bends and holds its shape. Another reason this is a real home run is that it really locks down the razor and provides zero movement when shaving. Plus the razor is easily attachable to the top.
- The most secure method of holding an attached razor blade.
- 20.8 inches long. More than long enough.
- Very lightweight as well as sturdy.
- A must have lanyard that attaches to the wrist so no chance of having to bend over to pick it up.
- Very comfortable handle.
- Highly adjustable, as you can bend the top end of the extension to any position you want.
- Just about any razor on the market will fit at the end of the handle.
This comes in at the number two position and would make an excellent leg shaver for pregnant women. This easily bends to any shape you want but when shaving holds its shape. Very lightweight.

- Extremly lightweight.
- Will accomadate and hold any razor.
- Lifetime guarantee.
- Virtually no razor movement when properly attached to the handle.
- Can be easily hung in the shower.
- Handle is maliable enough to accept any bending but hold it shape when shaving.
I have recently reviewed this razor extender and was pretty impressed with its simple but effective design. Plus it comes in the color purple. This is a fixed handle razor extender that has a very unique O-ring design that holds any sized razor with great stability.
This isn’t the most friendly name for women looking to shave their legs but it does a great job of extending your reach while maintaining razor stability.

- Uses an O-ring and slots to accommodate any size razors easily.
- Very secure.
- Very lightweight.
- Hole for a lanyard so in case you drop it.
- Is 16 inches long.
Another very simple design that extends your reach. An important note here is it has its own specific razor and doesn’t accept any other razors but the Evolve razors. There is an angle at the top of the handle that makes shaving easier. This also folds in half for just choking up on the handle or storage and traveling.

- 16 inches long.
- Comes with 4 razor cartridges.
- Lubricating aloe & vitamin E strip.
- The shaving head pivots.
- Very lightweight.
- Handle is textured for secure grip.

This is my fifth choice for ladies that are pregnant and want to shave their legs. This comes with two shaving head attachments that can be switched out to accommodate the various razors on the market. One is smaller and one fits the larger Venus model razors.
- Long handle.
- Adjustable length.
- Pivoting handle to get the correct angle.
- Does a decent job of holding razors.
- Comes with a lanyard for your wrist, to avoid dropping it.
Still Struggling? Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Your Partner To Help
Having a baby is a very intimate time if you are struggling shaving your legs maybe your husband or partner could help you shave your legs. This would also create a fantastic bonding time and support through this important life event.
Let me know if you have tried an extension handle before. Would love to hear any comments or questions as well.
