Pubic hair is not exactly a popular topic for discussion but one that is quite necessary all the same. While the rest of your bodily hair, if not groomed or maintained, will at most, give the appearances of untidiness and laziness on the part of the person. Not grooming pubic hair is known to be the cause of certain fungal infections. Fungus gets the optimal conditions to thrive in the pubic areas, particularly the groin. However enough talk about hygiene, there more reasons to keep your privates in check. Coming over to which trimmers are best suited (and trustable) down there in the sensitive areas; there are some features which combine to make the best or rather optimal hair trimmer. Of course patience is necessary here.

What Features Give you the Best Hair Trimmer for Pubic Hair
While multipurpose can take on different meanings, having an adjustable guide or the design to use multiple attachments is good enough. A good shaver will have a trimmer plus shaver option built into the device. The Philips Norelco is a good example of a shaver with a dual purpose design. There is an alternative to this and that is attachments. Read on to find out why this gets preference over that.
Basically built in features don’t need to be secured or maintained. They are enclosed as far as any moving parts are concerned. The chances of their malfunctioning are a lot less in comparison to add-on guides and/or blades. This not only increases the risk of a mishap but also adds to the process thus making it cumbersome. A fixed/adjustable guide/blade is the best option you could go for.
No questions here. Go for stainless steel blades. In fact take this a step further and consider the Panasonic ES246AC Bikini Shaper & Trimmer which comes with a hypo-allergenic blade. This means your blade has a ‘sanitizing’ effect added to it. Apart from that consider a self-sharpening and maintenance free blade over detachable models. Not only are these bulkier but require more maintenance as well.
You don’t need a heavy duty motor here. The main work is done by the blade, the motor just needs to ‘run’. Since the user will be all ‘slow and steady’ here; a fast motor isn’t necessary either.
Small, Precise Design
This is a point which cannot be stressed enough. The trimmer should be well designed with the blades being adequately sized to fit in the pubic areas.
Corded vs. Cordless
While you may have second or even third thoughts between these two when it comes to other applications; there are certainly no questions here. A cordless trimmer is the way to go such as the Philips Norelco BG2028/42 Bodygroom 3100 allowing a user maximum freedom. You, under no situation, want to be handicapped with a tagging cord when working on your sensitive areas. Not only that but a cordless trimmer requires less power and therefore is lighter and easier to use on the whole in comparison to a corded trimmer.
You might be using shaving cream as well so a trimmer which doesn’t mind getting a little wet is necessary. Consider something such as the Philips Norelco BG2038/41 Bodygroom 5100. While these trimmers aren’t water proof, at least they don’t get damaged or rusted, etc when exposed to water.
When you are looking to get a body groomer; go for the real deal. You can but shouldn’t hold back on something worthwhile because of a slightly higher price tag. Of course no one is asking you to go all out with a Braun Cruzer but you can still get a decent trimmer if you spare some cash. A good trimmer is like an investment; you reap the benefits which outlive the cost of the product. Trimming pubic hair is best done in a proper way. This means safety and hygiene as well. You don’t want an attachment coming off at the wrong moment or spot or a dislodged blade coming off. Neither do you want a blade which is host to a variety of bacteria.
