Welcome to the Butt Bench Review for the
Beautiful You Beauty Bash

There’s almost nothing, that I can think of off the top of my head, that rivals the feel good feeling of a nice hot shower after a long day. Whether your day has been spent running errands, going to work or chasing after a pack of lovable, pint-sized humans (or in my case pups) a leisurely shower or soak in the bath can do wonders to rejuvenate the mind and body. There are times, however, when instead of pampering yourself with a luxurious soak, you find yourself having to take care of that dreaded business of shaving your legs for us ladies. If you’re anything like me, then you know how tough shaving in the shower/tub can be. It seems no matter which way you position yourself, there never seems to be enough room or a comfortable position to shave in. I personally opt for the old leg propped up on the edge routine but this position can be tedious to say the least!
I recently had the opportunity of working with the company Butt Bench in trying out one of their innovative Wooden Bath Benches. First of all, how do you like their name? I love it! Their products is exactly that – a butt bench! I chose to try out their Cedar Butt Bench in the 12″ size and it has quickly became my new best friend!
So, what exactly is the Butt Bench and how does it work? The Butt Bench, just as it’s name suggest, is a place to sit while taking a shower or bath. This handy invention has made my bathroom into my personal oasis while also making shower time chores, such as that dreaded shaving routine I mentioned earlier, a breeze. When it comes time to do my shaving, it’s as easy as taking a seat and propping my legs up comfortably. I no longer have to do acrobatics and suffer cramps from stretching at odd angles or go through slip related accidents and other hazards. As an added bonus, the Butt Bench is also a great way to enjoy a steam cleanse, something I enjoy quite often since I suffer from sinus problems pretty regularly. I just pour in my Eucalyptus oil, turn on the hot water and take a seat and let the steam work its magic!
I discovered an even bigger bonus for me! For those of you that know me, you know I have a passel of pups! Well, to bathe some of these big lugs that don’t like their bath, I literally have to squat in the tub with them to give them their bath. The Butt Bench has allowed me to be in the tub with them, without having to squat precariously while trying to bath them.
The Butt Bench would also be an awesome product for seniors afraid of falling in the shower. It would allow them to sit and have privacy bathing without worry of falling in the shower or having to maneuver sitting down in the tub.
The Butt Bench is available in four different finishes: Cedar, Pine, Pink Pine and White Pine, all of which are 29″ in length. It also comes in two width sizes – either 12″ or 15″, which basically is how much sitting room you have. For mine, I chose the 12″ so that it wouldn’t take up additional space in the actual tub. All the Butt Benches are all sealed with a waterproof finish. While the Butt Bench fits most common bathtubs, you will need to measure the width of your tub to verify it will fit before ordering. Your tub also needs to use a shower curtain instead of a door. That’s all there is to it!
Now, you are probably wondering how hard it is to install the Butt Bench. Well, let’s just say it is easy-peasy! The Butt Bench has built-in suction cups that attach to the wall at the back of the tub to secure the seat. There is no need for screws, holes, equipment or anything else. Simply take out of the box, slide the suction cups to a position that will avoid the grout lines (unless your tub is like mine without grout lines) and then tighten them by turning clockwise.
Moisten the suction cups with a bit of water, to ensure a tight hold, and then push the bench to the wall. You’re done! You can see how mine fits snug in that little groove at the bottom of my shower wall.
Here’s a short clip showing the easy installation:
The Butt Bench is simple, versatile and easy to clean. Just turn on water, take a seat and let yourself relax in the spa like environment the Butt Bench has created for you!
