OK, I got over my embarassment and had my pre holiday waxing earlier today. i now think that i should perhaps tone down the remaining bush, using scissors, perhaps.

what are your grooming habits, and is there a whole new world of bush etiquette that i'm ignorant of?

this is serious!

topiary. with a bit of skill and some nail scissors you can create a beautiful swan.

I am being serious, three neat plaits and a bobble. Nice.

only when edges protrude 2 inches and there is lots of overhang and shade on lower lady garden patio, then I use an electric chainsaw.

will someone give a serious reply, please. my pants are 'puffy' as a result of underlying bush. it is not good. do you thin yours out?

Defo trim the remaining hair with scissors!!!! Otherwise you look like you have a bad toupee down there if it is too bushy.

There was a massive thread on lady garden ettiquette a while back.

Furry fanjo!!

rofl @ toupe. MT, you can see my problem? will get scissors, pronto.

Wilkie Tue 07-Aug-07 19:43:00

Seriously - joking aside - am I the only one who trims with scissors?? I had it all waxed off once and made me feel like a 10 year old. So now I just trim my landing strip once waxed.

Have you heard that (apocryphal) story re Marilyn Monroe where she was being interviewed by a journalist adn asked if it was ok if she brushed her hair. The journo said of course and looked up to see Marilyn holding up her dress and brushing her pubes!

Whizzz Tue 07-Aug-07 19:43:37

how about these?

princessmel Tue 07-Aug-07 19:44:45

If I could do links easily I'd find the other thread. Loads of people described their lady gardens on it!!!

Mercy Tue 07-Aug-07 19:45:38

Or a 'quim trim' as advertised in Viz mag many years ago

Wilkie Tue 07-Aug-07 19:46:10

Did you know you can get pubic wigs? Apparently lapdancers/porn stars quite often wax all hair off and replace with pubic wig shaped like something and maybe dyed.

Oooooo now that's an idea!

<<<Wilkie toddles off to find pubic wig site>>>

princessmel Tue 07-Aug-07 19:46:52

I've bumped the other thread.

Whizzz Tue 07-Aug-07 19:46:54

aim for this

Whizz - aiming too low shoot for the stars

Here's mine

gimme all your lovin'

scissors may give you a raaaaather unsophisticated finish so perhaps a nice little discrete Lady Trimmer (preferably in pink or another pastel colour) will look tidier, and will compliment you freshly waxed sides

A little tip: don't use it just before your MIL comes to visit. It takes aaaaaages for all the 'trimmings' to flush down the loo .

noonar Tue 07-Aug-07 19:58:29

oh gawd, have just trimmed and put cuttings down loo. will check appearance in mirror later.
