    All I can recommend is what my wife likes; Lady Gillette, Super Adjustable long handle, and Parker 29L,in that order.

    I agree with what @lightcs1776 said. But I would like to add another one, a Lady Eversharp (Schick) injector razor. My GF started with a Lady Gillette, but when I gave her a Lady Eversharp (K1), she now alternates between the two.

    My wife hasn't tried an injector, but I sure do like mine.

    My wife has tried just about everything out there. I mean about everything. She finally settled on the vintage Lady Gillette Starburst. My daughters also use the same. The wife's second favorite is the Merkur Future clone.

    This is my wife’s setup.
    Schick Lady Eversharp.
    She loves it.
    She started with a lady Gillette blue one.
    But when I got her the Schick the other one just sits in the Cabinet.

    From a vintage angle the Lady Gillette is a good choice (daughter uses) and also the unsung Schick Krona (has long handle) is a steady and smooth shaver.

    Honestly there is no difference when it comes to women vs men's razors. Everyone has there own personal preference. Some people like long handled, short, handled, double edged, single edged... It just depends on what that particular person is looking for.

    That said, in my wife's case:

    She likes the H1: Ladies Fashion Razor

    But she does not like the K2: Lady Eversharp Beauty Razor (long, tapered with glitter). She also does not like the Lady Gillette either.

    Based on what I’ve learned from my wife: Mild, Long handled and intuitive angle are the keys to a good ladies razor.

    The Gillette Star, Gillette Black Beauty-long handle & Parker 29L are all razors I've used with good results. Long handles are definitely something I recommend.

    I use a Weishi 9306-P which was also rebranded as a Wilkinson (Schick in the US?) recently. It has a long heavy handle with barberpole knurling - which is a downside imho, because it turns a bit when soapy.
    But there's also a version where the knurling goes both ways, I think it's the 9306-L (without additional letters - so I don't mean the CL ) - and for the ladies there's even a rainbow colored version.

    Anyway, it works quite well for shaving the body - for the face I prefer shorter handles though.
