Default [OT] Bikini Waxing

Does anyone do it themselves???

I usually just shave, but my daughter said waxing is *much* better (never
any razor burn or bumps, no stubble, etc.), so I figured I'd give it a try.
Not having 100% visual access to the site I wanted waxed, I thought to
enlist DH's help (OK, in retrospect, it was not a good idea to ask someone
whom you've ever argued with to do this particular job for you).

I'd bought the wax that's not supposed to need microwaving beforehand (I
didn't want any nasty burns on that part of my body) - it's supposed to work
with just you rubbing the outer part of the paper strip to warm the wax.

First, never try to balance an open jar of wax on a bed when there are cats
in the room who are 18 pounds and might jump on the bed, and *NEVER* open a
jar of coconut-smelling wax in front of Sammy (don't ask me how I'm going to
get the wax off of Sammy's face!).

Second, when a product comes with a jar of Benzocaine for post application
pain deadening, it might be a good idea to go with another method of hair
removal.

Ben finally got the wax applied in a smooth, transparent layer, put the
strip of paper over it, smoothed/warmed the wax, and, firmly holding my skin
taut (OK, after a certain age skin has to be *held* taut, it doesn't do that
on its own), quickly yanked the strip off my skin. That is, he yanked my
skin, along with the strip, off of my bikini area (why do they call it a
bikini area when that area hasn't seen a bikini in 30 years???).

Oh, look, there's only a few measly hairs on the strip, most of them are
still on the bikini area. So Ben puts the strip back on my bikini area (um,
sweetie, don't the instructions say that you're not supposed to go over the
same area twice?), and gives it another yank. After he peels me off the
ceiling, he looks and, lo and behold, there are still hairs on my bikini
area. Before I can yell *STOP* he has put the strip back on my bikini area
for a third try. This time when he yanks it off I have his head firmly
between my hands so he can't go looking for more errant hairs.

I hobbled into the bathroom, looking like a cowboy who has ridden his horse
for too long, to look at the damage. I am *BLEEDING* around the roots of
the hairs that have *still* not come out. My skin is beet red, and looks
more horrible than it *ever* has after shaving.

Has anyone ever had *success* using a wax on your "bikini area", and, if so,
what brand/method do you use (OK, I am willing to try it again - nobody ever
accused me of being the sharpest tool in the shed).

OK, but you get to wear boxer trunks at the beach if you want to - I don't
think they make those for women (but they should - not every women looks
like Cindy Crawforn in a swimsuit!!!). ;

H*ll no! But then I swore off of any kind of body hair removal (aside
from getting my hair cut occasionally) when I was about 14. Your
post, amusing as it was, does nothing to dissuade me from my stance =)

As Alix Olson sings, "Armpit hair is simply mammally factual":

PS -- if your bikini area hasn't worn a bikini in years, why are you
messing with it, anyway?

Not so fast. They do make "board shorts" for women. They also make
"boy shorts" (dunno why they call 'em that as I don't know of any male
who would wear them), which are very short but shaped like shorts, not
underwear.

When I was younger I also bought some men's swim trunks because I
found the pockets convenient for clamming on Okracoke Island ...

Personally, I think the whole issue is ridiculous. I've seen the
amount of hair that men will happily put on display, and it simply
doesn't make sense to me to freak out over a hair or two.

Pay the extra few dollars and get a beauty therapist to do it for you.

I'm lucky in that I have no arm hairs, no leg hairs and don't need my bikini
line doing, but my neighbour does and when she wants to go on holiday she
has a beauty therapist come to her home the week before for not much money,
apparently and sort her out. Do you have this service where you are?

That's fine for those who have peach-fuzz and call it hair, but dense black
curlies sticking out of a spaghetti strap top is not my idea of lovely.


PS -- if your bikini area hasn't worn a bikini in years, why are you

Because I am the extreme opposite of folicle-ly challenged - even a regular
swimsuit would be embarrassing if I didn't remove the hair there (picture a
thickly-bearded man trying to contain his facial hair with dental floss!!!).

Yes. However, it's not really the expense, it's the embarrassment factor
that stops me. If I were young with firm skin and a bit of peach fuzz where
it shouldn't be I'd give it a try - but sadly that ship has long since
sailed. ;
