Transcript:Differences Between a Brazilian and Bikini Wax

Hi, I'm Shohba for About.com. I'm here to tell you the differences between a regular bikini wax and a Brazilian bikini wax.

Main Differences Between a Brazilian and Bikini Wax

A regular bikini wax is going to make sure you look great in a bikini bottom there’s going to be no hair on the sides, and no hair peeking out. A Brazilian bikini is going to make sure you look great when you're not wearing a bikini bottom.

The real difference between a regular bikini wax and a Brazilian bikini wax is that a Brazilian bikini goes much deeper. The regular bikini wax focuses really on the edges of your pubic line.

Tips for Choosing Between a Brazilian and Bikini Wax

So a couple of things to be aware of: with a regular bikini you might be able to keep your underwear on, but with a Brazilian bikini wax everything's off. If you're normally sensitive during a regular bikini wax, you might be a little more sensitive during a Brazilian bikini wax -- they are going much deeper and touching upon your vaginal lip area as well as your butt crack.

For any bikini wax, be menstruation free -- it's already a time of month when we're more sensitive, why do we want to add to that?

Use Personal Preference to Choose Between a Brazilian and Bikini Wax

The type of bikini wax that you want to get is a personal preference. It's completely up to you -- both are going to make you look clean and pretty. It's just a question of how you want to look, and how it makes you feel. If you want to know more about the differences between a regular and a Brazilian bikini wax, visit About.com.
