11 year old girl and shaving "pits"

My 11 year old daughter is very tall (5'4") and, has a very thick and flabby midsection which she hates. Neither my husband or I are overweight (okay, not by MUCH) so I know that it is not permanent and that with puberty she will probably lose it. I do not want to make a "huge" issue because I know that could set the stage for a serious eating disorder. She is not very active, and I try to guide her in her food choices, but, she has no impulse control. She of course does not like the way she looks and summer is coming and all her skinny little friends (and her skinny little sister) will be in bathing suits and she has this thick middle. Okay, maybe then she will decide what to do!
Which brings me to my question- armpit shaving! I think her legs are not hairy enough to start but she has tons of hair under her armpits and wants to start shaving- for the summer I think it's a good idea.
Can anyone recommend a type of razor or other hair removal for the armpits that won't cut or irritate???
Thanks for your help!
