Brazilian Waxing for Plus Size Princesses: Eight tips for Going to Brazil!

Last week, Irina, the woman who does my waxing mentioned that some salons ask plus size girls to pay more for a Brazilian Wax,  because of their size. That really broke my heart, because reputable salons will not charge you a "fat fee". According to Irina, the rates should be based on the service they provide not the size of the customer. Below is a video and 8 tips for big girls who are looking to "go the Brazil" this summer... lets go!!

  1. A Brazilian Wax is when you wax everything from the front to the back (Yes, the back!)
  2. A big girl should not be charged more for a Brazilian wax. My Aestetician says that rates are based on the type of work (i.e. legs, bikini line, full brazilian) not the size of the person
  3. Having good chemistry with the person doing your wax makes the awkward/intimate process of waxing so much easier. Don't be afraid to walk away or ask for someone else. Its your body and your money ;-)
  4. I always skip nail salons and go to dedicated waxing salons or spas for my wax. This makes it easier to find someone who makes me more comfortable, if needed
  5. You will have to take your clothes off from the waist down, so I often wear a dress so that I can just take off my chonies (aka underwear) and pull the dress up easily
  6. I also offer to help, when needed. Sometimes, I have to move my chub out of the way and/or hold my tummy taunt. Saying "let me know if you need me to help" in the beginning tells my aesthetician that she wont offend me by asking
  7. Getting a wax can often feel like yoga. Irinia, my wax lady has me in a lot of crazy positions so that she can get to all my "nooks and crannies", for me this is why good chemistry makes things easier
  8. Always remember, having a brazilian wax can make a girl feel very... *wiggles eyebrows* I always try to make sure I get my waxing done at times when it wont affect my decision making on dates. That's all I'll say about that!
