  • With a bikini wax you clean up the edges. With a Brazilian you clean up everything (except maybe a landing strip)

  • A traditional Brazilian is all the hair below the belly button. But most women prefer to leave a small area in the pubic area. But the Bikini is just the area of your pubic hair that's beyond the underwear, nothing more...

    So, if you want your pubic area and your legs done, a Brazilian is a better fit. If you just want your pubic area cleaned up, go with the Bikini.

  • I guess it depends upon where you live. Where I live (East Coast) a bikini wax is your bikini line, as well as any more hair you want removed from the top down. A Brazilian, tho, is when you get on your hands and knees and they wax around your butthole and down your legs if you have hair there. They charge ALOT more for a Brazilian, like $50. A regular bikini wax is like $15.

  • BTW, I either leave a landing strip or go totally bare, and they have NEVER called it a Brazilian. That still falls under bikini wax,

  • yeah, a brazillian is everything including your um, kiss *ew*

    a bikini is traditionally covers 2 fingers up from the thigh bone inside of your leg, below your nether regions. You can get a more in depth bikini but that's typically considered a french bikini and may cost more.

  • I suggest Brazilian! You feel extra "clean" down there!
