As we all know, there’s no correct way to wear your pubes. That said, if you do shave, chances are your seasonal quest to find the best bikini trimmer has probably intensified this year. Last summer, we were so collectively concerned with not succumbing to a pandemic that pubic hair, generally, was not front of mind for most folks. But now it’s May and we’re about to plunge into Vaxxed Girl Summer. While the potential for beach trips is thrilling, some of us are still on the fence about having our pubes handled professionally even if there’s a waxing place open near where you live. Luckily, there are a ton of trimmers—and techniques—out there for handling your post-pandemic pubic situation because, as you know, sensitive areas require a bit more than a can of Barbasol and single blade razor, especially if you’re dealing with sensitive skin or a tendency towards ingrown hairs. Regardless of how bare you want to go or what your skin concerns are, get ready for the best vaxxed and waxed—or trimmed or shaved or sugared!—summer ever. Whether you’re looking for a close shave for your bikini line (or an even closer shave all over), an electric razor with different length settings, or the best product to keep ingrown hairs at bay, we’ve got you and your bikini line covered with our picks for the best bikini trimmers—and some key aftercare products— of 2021.
Temps are on the rise, vaccinations are rolling out, and plans are being made. Whether you’re taking a trip or keeping it local, summer calls for cute bikinis, and there are endless styles for every kind of summertime vibe. It’s hard to understate just how excited we are for the changing of the season—and we don’t just mean the weather. While we’re still taking important precautions to keep ourselves and our community safe, there’s no denying that people will be showing up and showing out with more enthusiasm than ever as summer kicks off.
Congrats! You made it through another winter of subzero temps and blanket-size scarves, and it’s officially time to unearth the best swimsuit brands for the long-awaited summer ahead. We’re still practicing safety precautions, but things are looking a whole lot brighter than they were this time last year—which means it’s prime time to stock up on bathing suits you love. With a hot (vaccinated) girl summer ahead, balconies and patios will continue to serve as mini sanctuaries, but we’ll likely see more outdoor soireés this season—and hopefully more friends and family.

Salma Hayek has shared not one but two photos of herself on Instagram living life to the fullest in swimwear, making us rather jealous of her holidays in the process.
Months after posting a photograph of herself on the social media platform in a black swimsuit to celebrate her 54th birthday, the actress celebrated the turn of the year with two new photos of herself.
In one photo, the mother-of-one wears a a fuchsia pink swimsuit, cover-up and hat while standing on a white sandy beach.
Unlike various unexpected trends that have emerged during the pandemic (ie. roller skates, Nintendo Switch, and elevated picnics), the rise of sustainable swimwear isn’t a surprise. The future of our planet is top of mind, with shoppers becoming increasingly eco-conscious—and swim brands are taking note.
Despite your best manifestation efforts for a return to “normalcy,” the pandemic isn’t over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the water this summer. Inflatable pools are another unlikely hot commodity right now, and per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “there is no evidence that the virus that causes COVID-19 can be spread to people through the water in pools, hot tubs, or water playgrounds.” As such, you can rest assured that buying a new swimsuit isn’t waste, especially with all of the eco-friendly swimwear available for summer 2020.
