Too funny! I actually got a brazillian the trip we got engaged on... NEVER AGAIN! Sam loved it, but it hurt way worse than a regular bikini wax, and I was really irritated. A regular bikini wax hurts, but not terribly. I agree with the idea of wearing sweatpants instead of jeans. Oh, and if you're going to do it for your BD, you should try to keep it up until the wedding - it hurts the worst the first time and then is a lot easier each month. The other thing I would recommend is to try to either trim the hair before you go so that its a little less than half an inch - alternatively, shave and wait until it grows to that length. If the hair is long it hurts worse and if its too short, it will be hard to wax.

Lizz,

 

i get a full brazilian every month and have been doing so for years - it is the best!

 

i have a great place i can recommend for you but it is in S. Jersey near Route 70 and 73 so 20 minutes from Center City - but the woman i go to is the best and i definitely think worth it! if you want her info, PM me.

 

i know of one other thread about this...

It definitely is not the most pleasant experience, but I think it is worth the pain. Use Neosporin plus pain relief cream (not ointment). It has to be the cream neosporin. It really helps! I haven't taken pain medicie afterward, but a couple advils probably wouldn't hurt!

I'm an esthetician and actually give bikini waxes.. yes, I inflict massive amounts of pain (on the other hand, I also give facials which I relax people hehe) and the best thing is taking an advil or two. Let your hairs grow - don't worry about them being too long bc being too short is much worse. Wear and old pair of underwear that you don't care about just in case she gets wax on it. Yes it will hurt but it's not THAT bad. Brazilians are much worse hahahaha You might bleed a little during the waxing but its normal since the hair is being pulled from the root. Also, you will be red and a lil bumpy. Put neosporin afterwards when you get home, it'll help in bringing down the redness. The next day it'll feel like a baby's butt :) hehe

do you mean take advil before or after? my esthetician (thanks for correcting us with the proper word so i can stop calling her my wax girl haha) told me ibuprofen increases the chances of bleeding, and i noticed she was right the one time i thought well maybe shes wrong and took it anyway, i bled a bunch more than i usually do. what say you, miss waxing authority? 1-pray.gif hehe

lizz, this a great thread! I think about this stuff but am too afraid to ask because I felt like a moron! I guess what they say is true, the only stupid question is the question not asked! That being said, my question is this, so I leave for Jamaica on a thursday, if I get this done on MOnday, will it be rashy and irritated in Jamaica? And brazilians are not that much worse? that is what I am really thinking about but it makes me nervous just typing about it!

I think if you get it done on Monday you will be fine. Go ahead and go for the Brazillian!!

amanda i would definitely not tell you that brazilians are not that much worse. prepare yourself, the first time hurts pretty bad. but like everyone said, the more you do it the less it hurts!

haha...I actually have vicodin from when I had a root canal last month, I may have to use that!

the first time i went i was so nervous. but now that my girl has seen my cooter a buncha times, we can talk about the weather or whatever. i would definitely recommend going to someone that is recommended to you by a friend. a good wax person is crucial to your experience being somewhat enjoyable...well you know what i mean, as enjoyable as a bikini wax CAN be! haha
Thanks for all of the info, Maura!

BTW, i also get my underarms done and its really nowhere near as bad as the bikini line. if you are feeling brave, try it out. i can go like 3 weeks without having to shave my armpits :) haha
I would love to get my armpits done, I never thought of that. I hate shaving every day!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
