The Best Bidet for Every Bottom

No toilet paper? No problem.

Tags:

Several months ago, as Americans prepared to hunker down and stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a few products became must-haves practically overnight. One of those was bidets of all types. As toilet paper became harder to find on store shelves, people who had never considered using a bidet before were suddenly in search of the best bidet they could get their hands on. (Or should we say their bottoms?)

Soon enough, bidets also began to sell out, as consumers realized that they’re a superior alternative to toilet paper. Luckily, now that the height of pandemic panic-buying has passed, bidets are back in stock and readily available. Also luckily, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites — so if you’re looking for the best bidet for your bottom, you’re in luck!

What is a bidet?

Basically, a bidet is a mini-bath for your nether regions, and back in the days when people used chamber pots — pre-toilet paper as we know it — they were absolutely essential. Beloved by Europeans for centuries (the French invented them in the 1600s), they’ve taken a while to catch on in the West.

Early bidets consisted of basins that could be straddled, allowing one to splash water over areas that needed freshening up. With advances in plumbing, they graduated to standalone bathroom fixtures with taps on the side, kind of like a sink in reverse. (Instead of spraying down, the stream of water shoots up.)

Nowadays, there are many types of bidets to choose from. The most popular ones are sold as attachments for your existing toilet, or as toilet seats with built-in sprayers, but there are also portable bidets, travel bidets, and handheld sprayer bidets.

Using a bidet may seem a little strange at first, but we predict that once you try it, you’ll find yourself hooked on the fresh, clean feeling that only a bidet can give you. Environmentally friendly and more sanitary than toilet paper, we think every bathroom should have one — and with the wide variety of styles available in a range of prices, there’s no reason they can’t.

Why we like it:

  • Gentle wash setting
  • Remote control
  • Woman’s World tested and approved

This is the one I have at home, and when they call it “the Cadillac of bidets,” they aren’t kidding. The Coway Bidetmega replaces your old toilet seat and is easy to install (our cat-sitter did it while we were away on vacation), comes with a remote control, and has just about every feature you could possibly want in a bidet. Nightlight? Check. Heated seat? Check. Air dryer? Check. Front and back wash modes? Check. There’s also “gentle” and “active” modes, adjustable water pressure and temperature settings, a self-cleaning function, and even Braille on the control pad, so visually-impaired people can easily operate it. A free 90-day trial means you have nothing to lose, so if you’re ready to level up your bathroom experience, this is the bidet we recommend above all others.

Mounting and connection hardware is included, so you can install it yourself (though you should be aware that many reviewers recommend hiring a professional, both to prevent leaks and save yourself the headache of installation).
