Rather embarrassed to ask but does everyone wax/shave/whatever down below? Is it the norm to do so and abnormal not to? sorry again

Nope I don't. Can't stand the irritation of regrowth afterwards.
(Now I'll expect some organised MNer to tell me that you no longer need to go through that)

From time to time I use the Immac razorless thing and it does look 'nicer' I think. Couldn't face waxing. Things have been getting a bit out of control since I've got to my mid thirties IYKWIM. I think it's growing upwards to meet the whiskers on my chin

* whispers *

only if I'm going to go swimming to make sure it's all well tucked in!

Agree with Amanda - can't stand the regrowth.

I do shave mine ocasionally, but hate the regrowth so don't do it very often.

give it a quick scrape over if it's looking out of control but tbh haven't bothered recently dp just saw a pair of v nice knickers of mine hanging on the radiator and said oh go on put those on so may have to hot foot it to the bathroom for a sort out!Have been looking aftre sick ds all day though and would prefer to leave it bushy I'm so tired can't believe I'm typing this!!!!!!!!!

duckegg Sun 30-Jan-05 19:06:32

While we're on the subject , can someone tell me what a Brazilian is?

WigWamBam Sun 30-Jan-05 19:29:49

A Brazilian wax takes it ALL away, apart from a tiny strip of closely-clipped hair in the front. Ouuuuuch!

A brazilian is the thin strip of hair cut short like a landing strip ;)

Have to add, I used to be the Undone Queen, let it all hang out was my motto, now I am the Hoolywood queen, not even a single hair left. To tell the truth, if I was really skint I would have that rather than my legs, I definatley feel "cleaner" Sorry if this is too much info!!!

jabberwocky Sun 30-Jan-05 20:05:02

Nope, I don't do a thing unless it's summer and then I just make sure I tend to it enough that the bathing suit looks okay.

jessicasmummy Sun 30-Jan-05 20:08:12

ill admit to the whole lot off... but tend to let it grow back to a decent length before attempting again - regrowth is irritating, but the wonders of nappy cream!!!

piffle Sun 30-Jan-05 20:08:56

I always think it would look better
I trim the length (eeeks what a description) to keep it tidy though, if I was heading out in a bathing suit then I would def immac
But I have a tank leg one now so no worries in that deot!

jane313 Sun 30-Jan-05 20:09:14

I always think the whole lot off would seem a bit pre pubescent. My friends husband likened her brazilian to a fishfinger

jessicasmummy Sun 30-Jan-05 20:10:55

all off in my opinion is cleaner and a lot nicer for DH... iykwim!!!

Just got rid of the lot this am! I'm no yeti by any means - BUT - I did me pits, tummy stripe (that bizarre bit between your belly button and your foo!), full leg (inc big toes ) and, of course, the 'bonnet' is as smooth as my DD's peachy! However, re-growth is a NIGHTMARE and, considering I've just posted a thread about how my DH has been a complete T#*T 2night - I wish I hadn't bothered as there'll be NO horizontal folk dancing in our bedroom for a while !

It is soooooooooooo true - You lose ALL of your inhibitions after you've had a baby! There is Nooooooooooo WAY I would have EVER divulged this info so candidly before I had every Gyno and his stude have their fingers down me pants!
