    Vaginas in women are one of the crucial parts of their reproductive system. The top 5 types of vaginas are Ms. Barbie, Ms. Curtains, Ms. Tulip, Ms. Horseshoe, and Ms. Puffs. You need to keep in mind that types of vaginas do not have any relation with the height and weight of the women.

    Vaginas- the term itself makes anyone crazy unlike the vagina itself. Vaginas come in several forms and sizes and this article is written with the perspective of one bikini waxer who actually described they types of vaginas she noticed in women. Does anyone of us even give a thought to it at all or we all pretend that we don't think about it at all. Since very long women are taught about vaginas as precious little secret, which should not be shared or talked about, plus don't compare it to one another.

    And opposed to common beliefs, the common vagina is not at all similar to clean Barbie like clean package with everything tucked in.

    Though we are used to see penises almost everywhere be it is subway graffiti, cartoons, books but vagina images are rare to find. According to one of the bikini waxer Mel, there are five different vaginas categories in women. She added that there is no mathematic algorithm for it. It is only to help women understand the secret i.e. how vaginas look which we keep from our friends as well as society at large. What society thinks of vagina is the entire female pubic area as vagina but in reality it is an actual hole.

    What are the different types of vagina?

    There are kinds of shapes that waxing professional described. She categorized not on the basis of the appearance and don't focus on only on vagina but the outer region as well which covers labia majora and labia minora.

    She named the types of vaginas as- Ms. Barbie, Ms. Curtains, Ms. Horseshoe, Ms. Puffs and Ms. Tulip. She also revealed that hanging of lips of vagina doesn't have anything to do with women age and weight.

    Types of Vaginas

    1- Ms. Barbie: The first shape in the list is Ms. Barbie where labia minora completely concealed in labia majora, both resting up against the pelvic bone. According to Mel, people think this type of vagina is normal and classic and also revealed celebrities spoken about getting designer vaginas where everything should be tucked in.

    2- Ms. Curtains: The second common shape is Ms. Curtains where labia minora peek out from labia majora. Depending upon the lady, it can be slightly extended or more noticeable. She also added that this is the most common shape she has come across and seen in combination of other kinds of vagina.

    3- Ms. Horseshoe: Ladies with this type has vagina opening, which looks wider from the top. It implies labia minora is slightly revealed and can be seen. Its labia majora closes at the bottom, which resembles the shape of horseshoe.

    4- Ms. Puffs: It looks similar to one of the vagina types Ms. Barbie and the point of distinction lies is how close the lips hang to pubic bone. In Ms. Puffs, they sit much lower and either can be full and puffed up or thin and loose. It doesn't have anything to do with women age and weight.

    5- Ms. Tulip: The last of the clan is Ms. Tulip and is named, as labia minora seem like a tulip, which is about to bloom. Labia minora are slightly visible between the labia majora. In short, it is a more tucked in version of Ms. Curtains.

    So the bottom line is every vagina is distinct but are related to other vaginas. Every vagina is perfect and is like a curtain and you won't hate your house if your curtains are ugly.
