I am booked in for a wax on my bikini area tomorrow. I think I want to try a Brazilian (I usually shave most of it off at home anyway). My problem is I am a little embarrassed as I have given birth 5 times and down there isn't what it used to be - like things have stretched a bit iykwim . Any other mums like me that have Brazilian waxing or have advice? Or is it just better to keep shaving in the comfort of my own bathroom?

Brazilian after babies?

I dont but have a few friends who are in the industry. They see all different sizes and shapes, they dont care and dont judge. Its part of their job, just like a dr doing pap smears or a midwife delivering a baby. Don't be embarrassed, they will have seen it all (and more) before

Pick a good waxer - maybe ask friends for recommendations. It will make all the difference!
Trust me, they've seen it ALL!
Just be a good client and shower before hand and they will be happy!

I get permanent hair removal on my Brazilian I pretty much just lay there and go off to a different place in my mind. I've had 4 kids and feel the same but try not to let it stop me.

Thanks girls. You have put my mind at ease. Still thinking about it though. I'm going to my beautician who has waxed me before (just not that much lol) and she is great. Another question. What do you wear while they are doing it? Nothing? Disposable underwear? A towel or cover? I am the kind of person that needs to prepare my mind

They give you disposable underwear. Well they did when I used to go regularly... ds is almost 4 and a half.. I have had 2 more kids since then and so nervous about going to get a wax again.... but I hate hair!!!

I know how you feel Blissfulfairy. I can just see me going in with the giggles and my skin going red and blotchy from anxiety.

It hurts like a mofo the first time but if you keep it up, the pain is much much less. I freshen up in the toilet beforehand with baby wipes, but then they also give a cleansing wipe and disposable underwear. Heaps better than shaving imo but I'm pretty lazy and just want someone else to do the hard work haha!
