It’s a huge decision, getting a Brazilian and you definitely want to get it right the first time. Not only is this an extremely sensitive area, chances are you are also thinking of letting someone else see your sexy and smooth bikini area. So before you run out and buy the first one you see, here is a guide on how to choose the best epilator for a Brazilian.
What to Look for in the best epilator for a Brazilian
There is no avoiding it, the first time you give yourself a Brazilian it is going to hurt. A battery powered epilator can help to minimize some of the pain, since you can use it in warm water. Another thing to consider is using an epilator model that includes a small light. This can be especially helpful if you aren’t use to playing around down there. While these features are not necessary, they are wonderful additions.
What you do need to look for are epilators with adjustable speed settings, this is especially helpful with coarser hair. A rotating or swivel head is crucial if you want to be able to follow the natural contours of your body, and the head of the epilator should be smaller than one you’d use on your legs.
Another thing you need to look at is the tweezer count. These can range from a few to over 40. The number you choose will depend on your tolerance for pain and if you are only following the bikini lines, or going completely hairless. For larger areas, we will recommend a larger number of tweezers. While it is going to hurt regardless, it won’t hurt as long.
To help you choose an epilator for your bikini area, we made a list of our favorites. While not all of them feature everything, they all are capable of giving you a perfect Brazilian every time.
