Should s'epilate? underarms, legs, bikini line?

STo wax or not to wax? Should I keep my hair? Is it dirty? But what will people think?

These are the questions many people ask themselves. Hair is a subject that has often been taboo (and, unfortunately, still is today). For a long time, women were depicted as having smooth, beardless bodies. Many people still believe that a depilated body is synonymous with purity and hygiene, while lhair is synonymous with bestiality and virility.

Why leave your hair on?

It's a proven fact that hair actually helps to protect the body from external aggression, as well as regulating perspiration. In addition to these two points, some people stop waxing because it saves them time (and money), eliminates self-imposed suffering, and protects their skin and health.

Some studies even show that too-frequent bikini waxing can actually cause micro-lesions on the lips.

Why s'épiler?

Some people prefer to wax, either all over or just in certain areas. Whether it's a question of aesthetics or soft skin, the most important thing is to feel good no matter what you choose. 

Whether you're a proponent of "hair isn't there for nothing" or of all-over hair removal, in every case the choice is yours - it's your body and your choices. Whether it's for lack of time, militancy or simply because you like your hair, it's your business and no one can influence your decision.

Since we love to hear from our community, we asked several questions on our Instagram account @elia.lingerie. 1600 responses later, here's the summary of our survey. 

The results of the survey show that hair removal is still a taboo subject. However, we note that 82% answered s'épiler pour eux-mêmes, et pour personne d'autre. And that's what's most important: choosing to s'wax, or not, for oneself et only for themselves.

In any case, hairy or not, Elia menstrual briefs are so soft they'll be with you every day of your cycle in total peace of mind.
