    @beemyname:  Waxing your legs doesn’t hurt at all (if you ask me) and bikini waxing is unpleasant but not painful. Essentially waxing removes a layer of skin with the hair and overall I am not happy with the results (it’s like glorified shaving). I switched to sugaring, which hurts about the same but lasts so much longer (and also has “patchy” regrowth).

    @beemyname:   in my opinion is was waaaaaay worse than waxing legs! I have very tjick coarse hair and it sucked. But it was so worth it and I plan to keep it up. The first girl I went to did a lot of small strips which was hell, but when I went to a new girl she did huge areas at a time so it was iver with faster. Again that made it so much easier to handle. The pain for me was also very temporary. I felt like I was going to die the second she ripped the most sensitive strip but the pain was gone after a few seconds.

    I got my britney waxed for my wedding. Never again.

    It probably didn’t help that no one told me to take ibuprofen before, and it was right before my pd which is when everything everywhere is extra sensntive (yes I was on my pd at my wedding. boo)

    It’s not that bad – to me.  I think it’s only slightly more painful than waxing my legs, but I’ve been doing it for years so my memory may be fuzzy.  Just make sure you go to someone who has lots of good reviews!

    I didn’t think bikini is much worse than waxing legs but don’t do it yourself!  Hesitation is not your friend!

    @beemyname:  The bikini wax isn’t so bad. However, there is a certain “ring of fire” that is waxed with the Brazilian. Yowsers! So worth the momentary pinch though.

    Wax that thang.

    @beemyname:  IMO, legs were wayyyyyyyyy worse than bikini! In fact, I will NEVER wax my legs again! Bikini isn’t fun (I actually get brazilian) but it’s tolerable and over with quick. And the no shaving totally makes up for the pain!

    waxing your bikini is slighlty more painful than leg, but only in certain areas. I reccomend finding someone who uses hard wax rather than strip wax, it is less painful as the wax is not ripping off a layer of skin in addition to the hair.

    I think I’m probably alone in this but I don’t think bikini/brazilian waxes ever gets easier for me.  I’d make sure to take ibueprofren; and, remember to use either an atringent or a loofah to prevent ingrowns.

    I get Brazilians and I think they’re 10x worse than legs.

    Legs…uncomfortable. Brazilians? tears involuntarily leaking from my eyes and dripping onto the bed paper painful

    @beemyname:  I guess it depends on the sensitivity of your skin. Waxing legs is terribly painful for me and bikini, OMG FIRE!!!! It hurt for days. I only did it once and I will NEVER, EVER do it again. And then I got 1,000 tiny bumps like razor burn anyway! I pluck my eye brows and that hurts, but I can deal with it. Wax I cannot deal with. period.

    @beemyname:  i think it really depends on the person. waxing my bikini line doesn’t hurt but sometimes waxing my legs does hurt (i think it’s just because there’s more area to wax on my legs). waxing my eyebrows hurt like a motherfucker and i will never do that again.

    i echo the PP’s who said to make sure to use hard wax. it makes a huge difference.

    I’ve never waxed my legs but I’ve been getting brazilians for 7 years and they really aren’t that bad. I mean, it’s not fun, but my girl is so fast that it’s over in less than 10 minutes. For me, it hurts for about 2 seconds after she rips, then it’s fine.

    I usually take 3-4 ibuprofen an hour or so beforehand, and 2 again after 4 hours. I treat the area with some neosporin and hydrocortisone cream and everything is smooth and pretty by the next morning!
