VAGINAS come in all different shapes and sizes – but a former bikini waxer has revealed there are five main types that she saw in women.
And contrary to popular belief, the most common vagina is not a neat Barbie-like package with everything tucked in.
Instead there are a range of shapes that waxing professional Mel, who is keeping her surname anonymous to protect her clients, witnessed.
Her categories don’t just focus on the vagina, but the outer region as a whole, which includes the labia majora (the outer lips) and the labia minora (the inner lips).
The most common shape she saw is the Ms. Curtains shape, which is when the labia minora peek out from in between the labia majora.
In contrast, the rarest shape was a type she has named Ms. Barbie, where the labia minora are completely concealed from view inside the labia majora.
Despite it being the type she saw least frequently during her career, Mel said that many people think that this is what a classic, normal vagina looks like.
Another common shape she witnessed was Ms. Tulip, which was named as the labia minora resemble a tulip about to bloom.
Women with the Ms. Tulip shape have a labia minora which is slightly visible between the labia majora.
Meanwhile, clients with the Ms. Horseshoe have a vagina opening that looks wider at the top, revealing the labia minora, but closes at the bottom, resembling the shape of a horseshoe.
Finally, Ms. Puffs is similar to Ms. Barbie but with the lips of the vagina sitting lower on the pubic bone.
As well as revealing the different shapes of women’s privates, Mel also shared that the way the lips hang is not affected by weight or the age.
Speaking to Elite Daily, she said: “This is just to help women understand this weird ‘secret’ [the appearance of our vaginas] we keep from our friends and society at large is not as scandalous or peculiar as we may have thought.
“Moral of the story is that every vagina is different, but it shares a sisterhood with all other vaginas, and nobody should feel strange or abnormal.
“Your vagina is perfect. It’s just like a curtain. You wouldn’t hate your house if it had ugly curtains.”
