French and Italian Riveria

Clothing optional beaches and waxing
13 years ago, May 3rd 2010 No: 1 Msg: #110124  
This is sort of an embarrassing question but I have no idea who else to ask. We are hitting various degrees of clothing optional beaches along both the Italian and French Rivera. In the US it's pretty common for women to have a full brazillian wax. I know that shaving is a little less popular in Europe...am I going to REALLY stand out if I have no hair down there?

Hello Nicole 😊

While topless beaches are quiet common in some parts of Europe and mainstream even, clothing optional ones are considered alternative.

Many women here shave off most body hair. On topless beaches the only visible hair would be on the head, eye brows and eye lashes, even with the skimpiest bikinis. I dont know if many would go as far as a full Brazilian wax though.

Anyway, there are people here now and again asking about naturalist beaches, but I dont know how satisfactory the replies have been. Here are links to some threads about it.

Nudist places and Swinger clubs in Europe.
