    I did it for the first time before my wedding and it was great. Every time I shave, it's nice and smooth the first day (maybe second day) and then I start to get some stubble. We had 3 days of events, back to back, where I had sleeveless dresses on so I wanted to be smooth the whole time. I let the hair grow for 10 days before I had it done. And it lasted over a week before stragglers started coming in. It's been a month since I did it and the hairs still haven't grown in as much as they used to - I'm shaving less and there is less to shave when I do. I'm even considering doing it more often now.

      maybe you should consider laser hair removal. In my case I had six sessions and now I don't have any hair and no bumps at all. It's awesome. I did the brazilian as well (a little more sensitive) and it's so worth the money. I'm thinking of doing my legs next. =)

        I just got mine done last week for the first time. The girl who did it was wonderful it actually hurt less then it does to get my eye brows done. I am not sure how long it lasts but no pain that is a big plus!!!!

            I would be such a mess!!!! I have not shaved since college. Usually when I get waxed everything lasts for about a week and then after two weeks everythign starts growing back and week 3 it's time to start all over again. Luckily everythign grows back in thinner so it's less and less to wax over time.

            I am considering laser removal for my underarms and legs...

                  Ok I think I will find someone who is good and do it a test run before the big day. But im a little nervous I have to admit, waxing isnt exactly my idea of a good time
