This post is about bikini waxing, or rather, not waxing. I couldn’t find another way to introduce the topic that didn’t sound forced – so there you go.
During the summer, I go to my wax specialist every 3 weeks while doing my own maintenance in between. I guess you can say I am fairly self-conscious of this body “feature,” being of Russian descent. Nuff said. I have tried Nair, even the extra strong variety. It still takes forever to begin working, doesn’t work completely and I end up with a horrible, uncomfortable rash as the hair grows back in. But that’s a lot of money for a year-round treatment. Totally worth it in the summer when we go to the pool 2 times a week, but in the winter when our child wants to go swimming normally I just bow out.
Recently, though, J invited me to the hot tub with him after a work out and I couldn’t go ‘cuz I was totally grown in. But I wasn’t happy about it.
When J and I sit in the gym’s hot tub, it is the one place where our daughter can’t interrupt us. Fifteen minutes of conversation all our own – our special time.
So the dilemma is – how can I continue to take a winter break from waxing and still take a dunk in the tub? (I once wore J’s swim trunks over my bathing suit but that just screamed “I HAVEN’T SHAVED IN AGES!” I was embarrassed by the obviousness of it.) What do you do when you need to wear a suit in a pinch and haven’t been properly groomed? Any bathing suit companies that are good for this?
