Not brave enough for a brazilian.. but I did the basic bikini and was very happy with the results and only walked funny for 24 hours. The best way to describe it, you can wear the smallest bathing suit bottoms they make, but you aren't completely bare. Look at where your hairline starts and pretty much measure in two finger widths from all angles.

Not that big a deal. But though the results are lovely, they don't last very long. I eventually had the "full Brazilian" done via laser. I have a few treatments left, and they've been very effective.

I get one once a month and I love it! It hurts like hell the first few times you get it done but the hair grows thinner and thinner after each wax. I'd say it's totally worth it :)

Do they wax your arsehole as well?!?

I love the brazilian wax, my mom came to visit one year around her birthday and I took her and paid for her to have one too :) es muy sexah!!!

In the summer I just find it much more pleasant as being a heavy woman I'm prone to heat rash.. icky, but true. The waxing makes me feel more comfortable.

With that said, if you have never had it done before, go to someone who is used to treating newbies... my first time took about 45 minutes because she went carefully as to let me acclimate to the sensation (and by sensation I mean sudden quick but tear blinking pain). Now it takes about 20 minutes because the lady just pats and yanks... oh joy... the quality can also depend on the wax and the way your hair grows. Oh, there is also a product... crap, what's it called... I highly recommend, it keeps the follicles clean and helps keep away any bumps, it stings a little but it's great. If you really want the name of it, let me know via PM and i'll run upstairs and grab the bottle to share the name. I'm too lazy to go get it if no one wants to know...

Depends on the technician, some always do it, some will ask if you want it, some don't do it.

Hurts like a MO FO!!!! but so worth it :)

Had it done twice. Once by someone who knew what she was doing...that hurt. And once by someone who did NOT know what she was doing...that hurt like a mother #%$*er! I was black and blue for a week!

Expect to be hurting for a bit...but it is worth it.

Hurts like a MOFO! But def worth it and highly recommended =)

HURTS like a mofo and it would be worth it if the hair didn't grow back...

I can not tell you how WONDERFUL it is! Yes, it hurts. A lot. But it's nothing you can't handle (trust me). And it is SO worth it! I can definitely agree with others who say find a good place to go - I go to a spa. It's pricey, but I have to say, it makes me feel so much better, cleaner, and more sensitive during sex. The hubby LOVES it! Shaving does not get even close to what a BW can do, so if you compare the two, shaving sucks. And not everyplace makes you get on hands/elbows and knees. Mine doesn't. I lay down, legs in a diamond shape while she does the front. Then she asks me to flip over while she gets the back. You don't have to do anything you don't want to - but I highly suggest you go all the way on the hair removal.

I was scared to do this for about a year. But when I finally went, I took some tylenol beforehand. It was painful, but I couldn't stop admiring it after she was done. Also, it gets easier the more you go. And the hair grows in softer. And the cream I bought was great - Finipil. A small amount really does the trick. And I didn't feel sore afterward like some people are saying - once the initial waxing was done, I didn't feel any more pain. At all. Best thing I have decided to do in a long time! Try it!

It's really awkward when you get on your knees and elbows.

If they are good at it, it barely hurts except right in the front middle.

This ^^

It is awkward to get on your knees and elbows but the lady that does mine is super nice and amazingly, I didn't feel incredibly uncomfortable (and I'm very shy). I use something called "no scream cream" and it kinda numbs everything. Even without the cream though, to me, it's not very painful at all (I think I have a high pain tolerance though laugh )

Knees & elbows??? I've never had to do that.

If you get the FULL brazilian.. They take care of the hair anywhere and everywhere. wink

Guys get it done too.

Hmmm interesting does it last longer than a shave???

Waxing? Absolutely. Because you're ripping the hair out of the follicle. Shaving just takes the hair off from the top layer of skin. Shaving = 2 days, waxing = 2 weeks or more. Plus when you shave it leaves a blunt end on the hair, which is why it's prickly. When you wax the hair grows back softer so it's not as noticeable.

Is the laser hair removal becoming more prominent? Is it safe? Is it very expensive? I've been thinking about laser hair removal for some pesky facial hairs that keep coming back and getting ingrown. This would be the perfect solution since it's supposed to be permanent. Permanent hair removal would also be perfect for down there since shaving or waxing would be very itchy as the hair begins to grow back. Also irritates the skin.

So, how many of you get the full works done?!?
Including front to back as in right up to the arsehole area?!?

I know this is an old post...but just in case anyone else is searching for info...I thought I would add my two cents. I've never been waxed before and I think I'm a wimp when it comes to pain, but I've been thinking about waxing for a while, so I started googling all sorts of questions.

At the end of the day, I found a place that does 'sugaring'. That claims to be less painful than waxing. I decided to do a brazillian - I'm not really sure why, but I was curious.

I was extremely nervous about being on the chubby side. I am 5 ft 8 about 240 - most of the weight in my stomch area...anyway I wasn't sure if places would even do this for someone who wasn't skinny.

I went for my appointment and the girl was super nice. She didn't seem judgemental at all. When I got there she asked me to take a few mins alone to remove my bottoms and wipe up.

She came back with aa trimmer and asked me to lay on my back with my feet touching aand knees out. The trimming tickled and was a bit weird but I guess that was only the beginning.

She asked me to pull the skin tight, ie my flabby stomach or sometimes upper leg, just so she could really get in there.

Sugring doesn't really very much felt like a bandaid being ripped off. It hurt in that instant then just a bit after.

She did the front - like everywhere! Then she asked me to turn on my side, knees up so she could get into literally every nook and cranny.

She was done within 40 mins. There was just some tenderness the day of, but no pain, or rash or anything ...- I love it and will definitely go back again.

Brazilian waxing is extremely dangerous because of the bacteria down there and the way the waxing breaks the skin. People have had all sorts of skin problems and infections because of them, some ending up with women in hospital.

I know that some salons in UK don't do this treatment anymore because of the implications and it's not taught in the beauty academy I attend because of these risks.

this - micro abrasions = more open to problems. same for shaving, believe it or not. sugaring isn't any better or more effective - it hurts less because it's less effective at actually taking the hair out (breaks it off at the skin, so, it's basically really the same as shaving but a million times messier & more inconvenient). trimming or laser are safest/most comfortable/effective.

So apparently I am super sensitive down there because I ended up bleeding after I was waxed and also ended up swollen down there for 4 days afterwards. And considering I got it done to fly down to Jamaica for my wedding, that was definitely not pleasant. I also ended up with my hair growing back in within 2weeks. so it was pretty much not at all worth it. I will definitely never be doing that again. I may look into getting laser done, but until then my hubby can deal with me shaving it all off.
