Shaved it all off, and shave it daily, that's how my hubby likes it.

Sometimes I do nothing aka Au Natural

Sometimes I use a battery operated trimmer. I try and refrain from shaving, it really isn't healthy (I'm a midwife...trust me).

Yes! I am 283# and get a brazillian every 5 weeks! My Esthetician is super professional and does an amazing job! So worth it. If you go to a skilled person you won't have any problems, they will show you where to put your hands to "help" and before you know it you are smooth as a baby! Haha ha

I really recommend you give it a try!

I can't even imagine. I am old and I had not even heard of getting rid of hair there until my daughter reached an age where she started shaving there.

I cracked up when my grand daughter said "Grammy you have hair on your Pee Pee" She had never seen that before. My daughter in law shaves every day too.

Since this topic is already going, I have a few questions. I stay pretty close to natural with trimming and a bit of edging work, but that is as far as I go. I am interested in trying other methods of landscaping but I am worried. How bad does waxing hurt, really? I know when my eyebrows are waxed it isn't exactly pleasant and then I am swollen and angry red for about 24 hours. I can only imagine what would happen with a Brazilian. For shaving, doesn't that itch horribly ? I really don't want to have unbearable itching down below caused by something I voluntarily subjected myself to. I truly am interested in trying something new, but I am a little gun shy. Thanks for sharing your experiences and perspectives.

I use my hubby's old beard trimmer. I've shaved and it sucks. Never tried waxing. Go au naturale, but it gets too long. And I don't want to go completely without, because I think it looks prepubescent and a little creepy. But there you have it.

My age group is obsessed with pubic hair removal...its quite disturbing when women come into the clinic for their annual exams and they say things like "Oh, I havent shaved yet"....lol...I am constantly telling ladies that they dont have to...at least not for me.

shave completely. hate the feeling of hair and think it's gross. that's just me though :-) after gaining all of this weight, it's a struggle shaving so sometimes i get a tiny bit lazy with it but i try not to. i feel like i did when i was 9 months pregnant trying to shave

I've done waving. The full Brazilian.

And yes it hurts. Especially the first time, and really a whole lot if you don't trim first. I like to get it evry 4-6 weeks. Summer I stay at 4 weeks.

After a few times the pain tends to get better. And also because tre hair tends to grow in thinner really helps. Go to a place that uses purple wax not the yellow kind that they use on face. You use that and you will really really suffer

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.

I usually shave because I feel the more hair the more likely you are to hold odor. However I've been au natural for about 3 months now because I'm a curly q up and downstairs which means if I don't maintain it gets crazy down there. Once it gets crazy I get lazy about shaving because I know it's going to take forever. I'm due in for an appt with my gyno soon so I guess I'll break down and do it this weekend.

        :) I give you permission to stand up every hour from your seat, kinda jiggle and shake and move your legs and sing along to whomever is on the screen at the time. :)

        My boyfriend might sneak away and leave me at the theater if this happens

        I doubt that. :D I'm thinking he likes livin' on Fantasy Island too much. :D

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That's wonderful! I have trouble sitting still in the movies now. (I even fidgeted through the last John Wick, and it was awesome) I can't imagine sitting still this soon after surgery. More power to ya! Have fun!

        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.
