Bikini Trimmer Buying Guide
Why Trim Your Bikini Line?
All aspects of female grooming from hairstyles to pedicures have been subject to trends, fads, and fashions, some are fleeting and others are long-lasting, and the upkeep of pubic hair is no exception.
While shaving does make for a smooth, hairless, and soft nether region, it isn’t without consequence – razor burn, nicks, ingrown hairs, bumps, cuts, and the list goes on.
So, it makes sense for not only your vulva’s well-being, especially if you have sensitive skin, but for also for your bikini appearance to try trimming as a pain-free and pleasant grooming experience.
Bikini Trimming Options
Who says trimming has to be boring? You can leave a little bit, trim up the edges, or leave a lot if that’s your kind of style. The best part about your lady bits – it’s yours and there’s no right or wrong! We’re merely offering you guidelines and suggestions to help you find your groove and your grooming style.
No one says you have to go full-fledged Rambo on the entire pubic area. Just merely trim the edges of your bikini line that are starting to stray off the grid to keep those pubes in check. The aim here – no strays and no wandering outside of the panties.
This is another popular option where most of the hair has been removed through various methods, but there is a small patch of trimmed hair that typically starts at the top of the hairline and ends somewhere down there. The length, width, and shape is all up to you! Freestyle – we love it!
This is where you can really let your creativity shine with landing strips, shapes, and even letters! There are tools, stencils, and kits that can really help you get that kinky look. Maybe a delicate heart might spruce things up or perhaps you just want an even more groomed area with some trimmed up hedges – va va voom!
But, what about the completely bare look? Whether you’re looking to wear the most revealing lingerie or something that barely qualifies as a bikini swimsuit, then perhaps you need to read on…
Epilating, Shaving, and Waxing
What’s the “norm” for down there? Am I the only one that does this? If you’re braving the waters of other grooming options, let’s help you get that confidence you need to embrace whatever style you want to try out, and believe it or not, trimming still has a major role here.
You do want to trim your hair to a shorter length, perhaps .5 to 3 mm before epilating, it makes for an easier process that’s a little more comfortable – if there’s anything comfortable about tweezing multiple hairs at the same time!
Hold it at a 90 degree angle against the direction of the hair growth and you’re good to go.
This happens to be a woman’s default method to getting hair-free because it’s fast and it’s cheap. But, we’ve all taken an all-purpose razor down there and regretted it after a day or two.
So, to get the best experience for bikini trimming by shaving, remember the 5 Step Rule: Trim, Soak, Lather, Shave, Moisturize.
Your choice of razor is going to play a huge part, so go with something made to do the job well like the Schick Hydro Silk TrimStyle Moisturizing Razor.
Hot wax, strips of cloth, and voila – you’re hairless. But, if your hair is on the longer side, you’ll want to trim to 1/4 inch lengths for waxing.
Don’t forget to pop an anti-inflammatory pill 30 mins before the session and bring those Granny-panty cotton underwear! Let your lady bits breathe.
Hair Removal Creams
Another option that is worth mentioning is the use of a depilatory cream such as Revitol Hair Removal Cream
. These are a great option for those who want to avoid the pain of epilating, waxing and razor burn!
Wet or Dry Trimming
Many trimmers come waterproof so that you can conveniently use it in the shower, but there are also some that are meant to be used dry. So, how do you pick between the two styles?
Making the decision here largely depends on your intended use for it, but there is a simple guideline you can follow – trim dry, shave wet.
If you’re just tidying things up down there and you’re purely just going for a trimmed and groomed bush, go with a dry trimmer. Trimming hair while it’s dry makes it easier to manage.
But, if you’re going to be doing some razor work for a bare, hairless, and smooth look, then a waterproof bikini trimmer can get the job done while you’re in the shower. These trimmers can be anything from a 2-in-1 razor and trimmer to a multi-use bikini trimmer to trim a little here and then completely remove there.
Charger vs Battery
Most women on the go, who travel quite a bit, and like to keep something discrete and portable in their purse at all times will prefer a battery-powered bikini trimmer. The batteries are usually the most common AA or AAA batteries that you can find anywhere at any retail store, gas station, and grocery store.
You don’t have to keep track of a charging adapter, but you might lose out on operating time. Lugging around extra batteries is almost as bad as lugging around a charger.
But, for many women who typically keep their grooming tools at home where it’s going to be used most of the time, a charging adapter is the most convenient and environmentally-friendly option.
Hooking it up to a charger while it’s not in use and then pulling it off when you need it is quite the convenient option indeed. Plus, there’s no extra cost in consistently buying batteries!
Low Budget vs Expensive
As with all things, the more dough you have to spend, the more vajazzling results you can potentially have. But, if budget is your deciding factor, then let’s discuss what you can get for the lowest costs possible and what you can save up for with an even-more forgiving budget.
For anything between $5 to $20, you can have yourself a quality trimmer that does just that – trims. You can also find bikini trimmers with razor attachments that can really help you get a hair-free look.
But, for anywhere between $25 to $60, you can have a bikini trimmer that comes with all the fixings – eyebrow attachments, length setting combs, precision trimmers, and razors.
In this price range, you’re typically receiving your bikini trimmer with a kit to allow for more flexibility when it comes to trimming and hair-removal options for not just the bikini but other areas of the body too.
Get into Those Nooks & Crannies!
For the damsel in distress that has very sensitive skin, or if you’re just looking for something to maintain the bikini region, trimming is a very popular grooming option, even when you want to get into those nooks and crannies.
Whether you have thin hair, thick hair, or an out-right bush – be shaggy no longer! You can have your new favorite, go-to bikini trimmer that gets you cleaned up fast, pain-free, and discretely.
