NO CHILDREN ALLOWED FOR THIS POST...

Alright, I didn't want to have to do it, but I'm desperate. I've never done anything about my bikini line because I usually always wear swim shorts or a swimskirt, but um, I need to for this vacation....WHAT DO I DO?! Some of you have said shaving stinks because it makes bumps, some of you said waxing isn't worth the pain...um, ok, so what do I do?! FEEDBACK! SOOON!!!!

Waxing hurts like way worse than a c-section. BUT, the results are AMAZING. Go to someone really good who does it fast and has a reputation. Dont do a $15 bikini wax in the back of a nail salon, spend a little more like $40 and you'll thrilled. I did it when we went to Hawaii and I cried like a baby but was happy for 2 or 3 weeks.

WAXING IS THE DEVIL!!! i screamed and cried. It hurt more than anything ive ever experienced. I like shaving a ton better. You get bumps for a little while but after your skin gets used to it, you dont get any. At least I dont. Nice picture by the way, a little disturbing.

Where did you find that PICTURE!!!! Ha ha ha.

As a survivor of the brazilian, I would say SUCK IT UP and do it already! It will be worth it. For Jamaica maan.

Mary said...

Ok, I had my legs waxed once at a super expensive spa and I cried. Seriously. Shave. If you rub a dab of neosporin on afterwards, you won't get the bumps. :)

And holy cow, have fun in Jamaica!!!

Shave, and then use a product called Bikini Zone, you can get at any drug store. It prevents the red bumps and the itchiness. And use a brand new razor when you do it.

I was a life guard for five years walking around everyday in my suit and I shaved, and after awhile there were no bumps, but you don't have a while, I've never tried the creams. I did one time use something that was a hair cream that required no shaving, just rub on and 10 minutes later, just gently wipe off hair. Well let me just say, I started smelling a horrible burning smell, and basically had burn marks for months....it hurt so freakin' bad...so don't do anything like that. I have also tried Nair...doesn't work. Waxing only works if you have someone else do it....if you try and do it yourself, you won't follow through, it just hurts way to bad. And then you'll look really funny with one side done and the other not. So there is no amazing cure that I know of, you could always tweeze...haha...just teasing.

hey, this is Ted Harris's sister Lizz. I met you a couple of times and was bitchy to you (very sorry for my lack of maturity and manners) and hung out with Jason before we all grew up and got hitched. Anyhow I was blog hopping and saw your name on Tia's blog and wondered if it were you and Jason and sure enough it was and what a freakin great picture! I had to comment about your dilemma cause I learned this tip from any old pageant queen, shave then rub a solid based deodorant on your bikini line (like Dove) and you will never get bumps, redness, itching. Good luck, tell Jason hello for me and you guys have freakishly gorgeous kids such a shame to close the factory down. Hope this isn't creepy to receive posts from "strangers" about your pubic region.

I have no advice for you! I shaved once and HATED IT!!! I itched for months. It was then and there that I decided that I would rather look like I was smuggling Chubaca from star wars in my suit then do it ever again!!! So, good luck with that!!

Wax! I just did a full body wax for our San Diego vacation and now I'm a true believer. My legs were the worst. I thought the bikini line was the easiest--I didn't do Brazilian though! I have awful armpit hair, but it's been heaven not having to shave and my skin is so soft! Just make sure your hair is long enough because then it doesn't work so well. Also note that you need to wax at least 2-3 days before getting in the sun, otherwise your fresh skin will burn to a crisp! Good luck!!

Adam, Hilly and Wes said...

Also, diddo on not doing it yourself. My sister and I started out that way and ended up calling a pro!

kristal said...

alright, so I've been shaving for about a month because that's what my friend told me to start doing because she said it takes a while to get used to it so you don't get bumps, but it's 5 days away, and I have bumps, so I'm going ot try the deodorant trick...it's the one I read of most on google too. Wish me luck girls.

Oh, and Lizz, it's soo nice for someone else to apologize for bitchiness, usually it's me doing that. Hope things are great...get your blog going!!!!

Laura said...

Wax, Wax, Wax!!! You're freakin' going to Jamaica baby. I'm with Amy John, suck it up already! As soon as I lose this dang baby weight I'm getting laser hair removal. P.S. I'm extremely jealous of the no kid vacation!

kristal said...

ok, but people, I've already been shaving, so there's not much hair there, even if I grow it out for the next 4 days and do it the day we leave, then it'll be a fresh wax, and someone up there said I'll burn...plus wont't I STILL have the bumps? BLAH! This sucks.

j&krosser said...

I love a good wax! But as you said you probably don't have time to do that now. The shaving tip I learned from my track roomie (since she had to shave often for races) was to shave the same direction the hair is going instead of against it.

Our Little World said...

Stop shaving and get a wax your first day in Jamaica!

Amy Allred said...

such a terrible dilemma, seriously I laughed so hard at the Chubaca comment, just go like that. Jase will love how womenly you are.

Kourtney said...

Kristal,
Waxing doesn't hurt near as bad as everyone says. I highly recommend suddenly slimmer day spa, (ask for Jen or Kendra). They are awesome!!! It is in Phoenix and extremly nice. They have a website you can go to. Just take like 2 tylenol before you go!! Its really not bad!!!

Cover it. Then you dont have to do anything - plus, I hear modest is hottest???

You are my Cinnabon Queen!!!! I thought I was looking forward to the baptism, but now you got me looking forward to something else!

Staci said...

um, i got back on here to see what other people said- i have to reaffirm that doing nothing is disgusting. and you are too hot and skinny to cover it up. grow it out a little and ask a wax person if it's long enough to wax (though think about it, eyebrows aren't very long and those can get waxed...) if not, you're stuck shaving and trying the deo. Let us know how it goes!

Audycamp said...

OH Wow that was not a post to read before eating..not that I was but man those comments were a little too descriptive too. Kristal only you could find a picture like this and get away with it. Good Luck with this & have an AWESOME vacation..you deserve it you skinny girl you.
