So I think I've tried pretty much eveything and nothing leaves me smooth and completely hair free..

What's your favoured method of hair removal down below?

MamaG Fri 27-Jul-07 16:06:30

I just use veet to neaten and DH's hair clippers to trim <snigger> he doesn't know

MascaraOHara Fri 27-Jul-07 16:08:11

lol @ clippers.

Veet wax?

I prefer at least a brazilian.. I'm trying Nair at the minute but seem to end up <snigger> patchy

This is a question I'm too emabarrassed to ask in real life but here goes:
Attending to one's bikini line: I always thought that was something that you only had to do if you wanted to ape the lifestyle of a minor celebrity. But as I look around the swimming pool and see the total absence of tell-tale bits of lady garden creeping from the sides of swimming costumes I wonder whether it has become somewhat obligatory, like shaving under arms. What do you think?

I would never not tidy myself down there to be honest

MamaG Fri 27-Jul-07 16:19:05

MOH no veet cream

I tried NAir and, as DH put it, I ended up looking like a mangy fox (thanks for that)

Six - there's never ANY excuse for seeing a stranger's minge

doesn't waxing leave you smooth & hair free?

MamaG Fri 27-Jul-07 16:28:46

I've never waxed anything

SixKindsOfCrisis Fri 27-Jul-07 16:30:44

For legs I used one of those plucking machines that look like electric razors but actually tweeze all the hairs out. Hurts so much that I nearly weep.

dear oh dear, what's wrong with a bit of hair there?

<shudder> at regrowth

MascaraOHara Fri 27-Jul-07 16:32:37

exactly CD

Just thought of waxing.. especially a hollywood <wipes tear>

CescaD Fri 27-Jul-07 16:35:24

Epilady - really it doesn't hurst that much once you get used to it.

MascaraOHara Fri 27-Jul-07 16:37:19

OUCH! @ the thought of an epilator on ya bits <weeps>

foxinsocks Fri 27-Jul-07 16:38:22

don't do it! - I am wincing on behalf of your bits .

CescaD Fri 27-Jul-07 16:40:05

No really it's OK. And then a beard trimmer to tidy the remainder so you don't have a nether-mohican.

My sil even uses it under her arms, although must confess that's too hardcore for me.

SixKindsOfCrisis Fri 27-Jul-07 16:40:37

Can we have a vote: who thinks you should tidy up Down There and who thinks not. I vote for the natural look.

lou33 Fri 27-Jul-07 16:43:46

tidy vote from me

waxing doesn't hurt really
take some painkillers first
is fine after the first couple of times

LilRedWG Fri 27-Jul-07 16:46:10

Tidy but not overly manicured.

CescaD Fri 27-Jul-07 16:47:06

Tidy - but only if
a) you are being seen in swimwear
b) your partner is v. particular (like mine)
c) you are single

I did a straw poll of single male friends a while back and many admitted they would be less inclined to see a girl again if she has a great big hairy one. They also said that nearly all girls do tend to their bits nowadays.

Before that I had considered it slighly slutty and not what nice girls did, but realised it is actually the norm now.

The next question is what shape do you go for....
