Being one who, by far, prefers the satin smooth look and feel, even on myself, I can claim many years' experience. I can report that combined daily use of foil type shaver, and body groomer (for 1/16" or longer escapees) will eventually lead to bump/ingrowth free result. Additionally, for areas that you're sure you'll never want to again sport your full follicular prowess, you can use an epilator. Eventual regrowth of epilated hairs will be softer, thinner hairs that are less prone to ingrowth and irritation.
As an additional observation, the use of harsh soaps strips your skin of natural protective oils and your native (and necessary) skin biome. Your skin will be far less prone to bumps, irritation and even body odor, if you primarily bathe with just water.

I couldn't stop laughing for about an hour. I made the mistake of looking at them at work and had to go and hide as I was getting funny looks because of the chortling and sniggering and outright belly laughing.
