Have you ever wondered what type of vagina you have? Did you even know there are different types? We don't blame you if you didn't know that, because it's not often we whip out our bits with our friends for comparison.
It turns out, vaginas all look quite different. However, according to a former bikini waxer who goes only by Mel to protect the identity of her clients, there are five different overall vagina shapes that she has seen in her career.
While these types aren't scientific or 'a mathematic algorithm', Mel told Elite Daily: '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.'
Her shape names are not the actual vagina, which is the whole, but rather the outside appearance — most of which has something to do with the labia majora (the outer lips) and the labia minora (the inner lips).
1. Ms. Barbie:
The most uncommon shape is what Mel calls the Ms. Barbie, in which the labia minora are totally contained within the labia magora. The waxer noted that this is what most people think of when they picture a vagina, but it is not what most vaginas look like.
2. Ms. Puffs:
Similar to the Ms. Barbie is the Ms. Puffs. The labia minora are still contained within the labia majora, but the lips of the vagina sit lower on the the pubic pone and are 'either full and puffed up or thin and loose'.
It's important to note, the way the lips hang has little to do with the age or weight of a woman.
3. Ms. Curtains:
Ms. Curtains is Mel's name for when the labia minora extend past the labia majora, sticking out either a little bit or a lot. This is actually the most common shape!
4. Ms. Horseshoe
Women with the Ms. Horseshoe have a vagina that opens wider at the top but closes at the bottom, with the shape of a horseshoe.
5. Ms Tulip
The Ms. Tulip looks like a tulip about to bloom, with the labia minora slightly exposed up and down the labia majora.
She concluded humorously: 'Your vagina is perfect. It's just like a curtain. You wouldn't hate your house if it had ugly curtains.'
Amen to that!
