Maintaining Her down there



Recommended Posts

I went for laser hair removal a few years back - partial brazilian, so most, but not all is gone. It's kind of awesome not to have to shave anymore. I just trim what's left once in a while. Hubby and I both love it.

I like having less hair personally, but I also totally admire those who embrace what nature gave them!

I like to keep her bald so I shave twice a week. Have been shaving for the last 15 plus years. Never had any issues but have cut myself a few times from rushing. I wanted to try to Brazilian Wax but they wanted me to let it grow out a couple of inches first then come back. It hurts when I get my eyebrows done so I couldn't even imagine doing that.

A couple of inches ???!!! :o

My peeps tell me they need a half inch and that's a lot so the wax can grab on.

Not a couple inches. That would be extremely long and extremely painful

Ok. What makes this worse is having a lower body lift. The pubic zone is bigger. I want to do something but I get bulbs from shaving, scared of waxing pain and that leaves laser. I am emailing my plastic surgeon to see if my scars are mature enough to do that or if I need to wait another year...

Bumps from shaving. Hate auto correct.

Wax it all off, top to bottom, front to back!

I have an epilator (is that an actual word? an electric tweezer machine thingy!) that I'll use to clean up some in between but only in the "bikini" areas, not on my pinker parts!

Waxing your lady parts hurts (to me) and I've waxed my legs (only, no shaving) for 25 years.

Someone mentioned purple wax. My gal uses a blue wax. I think the key is that a "soft wax" is used on the lady parts that they pull directly off as opposed to a "hard wax" that requires the use of a fabric strip for the removal. The soft wax is made for more sensitive areas.

The evening of is usually pretty sensitive but it feels so nice and smooth!

Take a tylenol (or something stronger if you have any left over from surgery!) and give it a try at least once!

Trimming for now. I prefer Brazilian wax though. Not worth getting it right now. After surgery and the weight starts coming off, I will be back on the wax train.

I shave regularly, if I don't the hair grows back like a Chia Pet..lol Also what helps with the bumps is coochy cream from Pure Romance. Also side note on that stuff it works as good hair conditioner as well.

I just recently jumped on the brazilian band wagon, well kind of, I don't do bald, I hate the look, I leave a triangle and keep that trim. I love it! My waxer is amazing, being a plus size lady herself I instantly felt comfortable with her. She used the stripless wax, which was nice, and told me about a product you can buy on Amazon that keeps you from getting ingrowns called PFB, it's a roll on thing and can be used anywhere. So far so good.

I also get super red with face waxing, but not so with leg or brazilian.

No not at all. I find it grows in much softer! Totally worth it for sure!

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
