To all the ladies who have ever wondered ""Can a plus sized woman get a brazillian?"" Yes, we can!!! Just because we are big, doesn't mean we aren't Beautiful!
I spent years contemplating...
Getting a brazillian would be embarrasing to say the least but then factor in the additional embarassment of being big! Fear kept me committed to my razor, the uncomfortable stubble and constant ingrown hairs.
Allow me to say ""Never Again!""
After reading rave reviews about Wax Nashville and Ro ""one of the owners"" I called and specifically asked if my size would be an issue?
I was reassured from that very moment that they wax all shapes and sizes, so I made my first apt and took the plunge!
I must admit I was a nervous wreck, I had no idea how the logistics would work. I worried that I would be too big, I'm 5'3 and a size 20. How was I going to accomodate Ro so that she could work her magic? How crazy was I to even attempt such a thing?
So here is my story:
I was advised to take two advil an hour before my apt (Do this! It made a huge difference for me.) When I showed up I was promptly welcomed and made to feel at home! As I waited for my apt. my plams were sweaty, I was very anxious and questioning my own sanity?!?!?!? I was caught completely off gard by Ro an extreamly friendly, bubby, gorgeous brunette who somehow made me forget I was nervous in the first place! She made me feel as if I had been doing this my entire life! Like we were old friends just catching up! I can not begin to explain how much of a relief it was for her to be so accepting of me. The process took about 30 min and to be honest I think the wax itself is more uncomfortable than the pulling. It was not painless but if I compared it to something I would compare it to having my eyebrows waxed...keeping in mind its obviously a larger area. In case your a big girl and your wondering about logistics...I had no issue helping to hold my skin taught, in fact I was surprised how little I needed to do...press lightly here, hold there honestly no big deal!
I am now a plus sized brazillian diva, If I am not waxed...I'm not happy!
I have been to both the Belle Meade and East Nashville. I enjoyed them both the staff is fabulos! I tend to enjoy East Nashville more but thats just because when I am done waxing I like to spend the rest of my afternoon downtown shopping! I can not speak highly enough of Wax Nashville, Ro or the rest of the staff!!!
