Panasonic ES246AC Bikini Shaper and Trimmer


The Panasonic brand needs little introduction as they have been making grooming devices for decades and are one of the “big four” manufacturers in the market.

Their ES246AC Bikini Shaper and Trimmer is a low-priced solution aimed at the female market for electrical clipping tools and we will look here at its main features and how it has been received amongst users.

Appearance and Accessories

The Panasonic ES246AC is slim-line and straight in design, 5.5 inches x 1.4 inches by 0.8 inches and weighing just a quarter of a pound; it is lavender-colored.

As well as the grooming unit you receive a cleaning brush.

Main Features

  • 5 settings for trimming away and shaping hairs around the bikini area easily and quickly.
  • Choose the length of hair you want to keep, ranging from 5/8 to 1/8 inch long.
  • Comfortable rounded tips to the 5-position guide.
  • The guard removes completely for super-close clipping.
  • No irritation or shaving “bumps”.
  • It employs hypo-allergenic surgical stainless steel blades to minimize the risk of a skin reaction.
  • Uses an angled head and a removable rounded guard to avoid “nipping” of hairs in the sensitive area.
  • Battery-operated, using standard AA cells (not provided) – this will provide enough power for 45 minutes usage.

Cleaning and Maintenance

You can clean this unit with the cleaning brush provided.


This item is priced at around $35, but is available for around $20 if you search the right places online, so we are not talking about a major investment.


The Panasonic ES246AC comes with a one-year limited warranty.

User Reviews

Users generally have found this a no-nonsense, simple unit that does what it says on the box.

It has very few whistles and bells, but for clipping and shaping the bikini area it seems to perform with little fuss.

Some people also note that there are accessories that you can add by ordering from the form that comes in the box, to expand it’s functionality a little.

Most negative comments were perhaps from people who were confusing a trimmer with a shaver, which this was never designed to be.

Any lady (or man) who wants to avoid some of the harsh chemicals used in waxing can benefit from one of these simple items, aimed at doing one job economically and well: keeping things neat and tidy around the bikini area. If you want something that does more then it will usually cost more than $20.
