I’m getting my first ever bikini wax today. I think I’m starting with a bikini wax with the hope that I’ll be able to stomach it and get a Brazilian or an “inbetweeny” for the honeymoon.
I’ve read the previous boards about what to expect, but I’m still nervous I suppose I shouldn’t be though….I was sooooo nervous for my tattoo and I shouldn’t have been. I’ll pop my Advil and suck it up, I s’pose!

You’ll be fine. It’s more awkward than anything else. If there is pain it only lasts a few seconds. Good luck!

You’ll be fine! The first time is always the worst but if you already took an advil you should be good to go. Just make sure you breathe & it will be over really fast. Good luck!

Got mine done for the first time a few weeks ago. It was what I expected as far as the pain goes, but find a person that you’re comfortable with. The place I go to is really clean and the woman the does mine talks so it isn’t so awkward.
Getting mine touched up tomorrow. Good luck!

The anticipation is worse than the event! lol It’s over a lot faster than a tattoo 🙂

good luck! I’m too much of a chicken to get a wax, but I want one. But I also want to get my ears pierced too and that’ll never happen!

I did my own bikini wax and waxed the peach fuzz (the kind you see when the sun shines on it) off my upper lip. Today I attempted to wax my legs. I did about 1/4 of my right shin before I had to stop. Bikini line ain’t NOTHIN compared to a leg! Take advil and never wax in the days leading up to your period when you’re pain threshold is lowest. I wish I had the courage to get a brazillian!

Thanks for all the advice guys! It went pretty well (as much as an appointment to inflict pain upon yourself can go). I actually almost jumped straight in and did a Brazilian, but I figured I’d stick with the baby steps since they said it hurts less the more you do it.
Next time I’ll do a Brazilian, and everyone was right about it hurting less the farther you go back. I found that the more “intimate” areas didn’t hurt as much as the leg crease close to the pelvic bone.
I have to say, I’m definitely happy with the results and bet I’ll be even happier with a Brazilian. Not sure if it’s something I’ll keep up with for years since it costs a decent amount, but it’s fun for a little bit.
