Lingerie Glossary

For an uplifting experience, use our simple guide to help you discover your perfect bra:

Balconette bra – a lower-cut neckline offers superior uplift without compromising on style or comfort. A must for any lingerie wardrobe and particularly suited to a more shallow bust shape.

Plunge bra – a cleavage enhancing style with a deep “V” neckline, perfect for wearing under low-plunging tops and dresses. Often with integrated or removable padding and particularly suited to a fuller bust shape.

Push up bra – designed to increase cup size or enlarge the cleavage with either integrated or removable padding. Usually cut very low, wear a push up bra to dramatically increase lift and add volume to a more shallow bust shape.

Contour bra – a lightly foam-lined, moulded cup ensures a smooth silhouette and accentuates the natural shape of the breasts. Perfect for everyday bras and suitable for wearing beneath fitted fabrics.

Spacer bra – a lightweight, three dimensional knitted fabric with breathability keeps you cool and disguises the nipple without thick padding. Perfect for light exercise and travelling due to its crush-resistant nature.

Underwire bra – a sewn-in moulded wire provides lift and support to the bust whilst a thin cup ensures superior comfort and a natural cleavage. Perfectly suited to a fuller bust shape and available in larger cup sizes.

Soft bra – a wireless style, designed in a vast array of shapes and cups to suit all bust types.

Racer-back bra – with straps cinched together at the back, this style allows a wide range of arm movement and alleviates pressure on the shoulders. Perfect for underneath sleeveless tops, regular bras can be converted with the use of Bra Strap Clips.

Shallow bust – when the bottom part of the breast (below the nipple) is fuller than the upper part. Firmness may be lost as a result of pregnancy or weight change, however elasticity will always decrease with age. Particularly suited to the uplift provided by a balconette bra.

Full bust – when the top part of the breast (above the nipple) is as full and round as the lower part. Particularly suited to the enhanced cleavage provided by a plunge bra.

The Bottom Line

A myriad of different styles to suit all tastes and occasions, find your perfect bottoms with our simple guide:

Bikini – sits low on the hips with a high-cut leg providing a moderate coverage. A classic, feminine style that elongates the leg.

Boyshort – a low leg line provides full coverage for a modest look and excellent comfort.

Hotpant – similar to a boyshort but with less coverage at the rear. A flattering style popular for everyday wear.

Thong – sits low on the hips with minimal back coverage. A beautiful yet practical style, perfectly suited for wearing under fitted clothes.

Brazilian – a seductive style, with more comfort and coverage than a thong yet less than a bikini.

VPL – visible panty lines can be avoided by selecting the best bottom for your outfit. Thongs are a safe choice and many other styles are available without a tell-tale heavy seam.

  • Absolutely amazing wax with Martina today. The whole experience from Terri on reception to the treatment was fantastic and I cannot recommend this salon enough. Having recently undergone extensive surgery for Crohn’s disease, I was nervous for my first wax in a few years and Martina was just amazing she listened to me and made me feel totally relaxed and in safe hands. The wax they use is fantastic and you barely feel a thing. Can’t wait to come back!

  • This was my first Hollywood Wax and I was nervous. The reception staff were extremely helpful with my questions beforehand. Holly my waxing technician, was extremely friendly, helpful and really put me at ease. It hurt a little, but nothing to how I thought it was going to and it was over very quickly. Definitely will be coming back! Thank you to the whole team for a fantastic service!

  • This place is awesome. Every time I’ve come they have offered top notch service. They make me super comfortable, they are beyond friendly, and the wax is done to perfection. All of the Strip locations are great but I think the City location is the best for customer service and friendliness. Highly recommend everyone go here for!!

  • I have been looking for a hair removal salon since leaving NYC. A lot of beauty salons use mediocre wax, however at Strip they use the proper black wax which is the best and most comfortable way to remove hair it is also super quick. Staff could not have been more friendly helpful and professional. I will definitely be returning to Strip!

  • I have been going to Strip Wax for years, and it never disappoints. They always do an excellent job, and make the experience as pain free as waxing allows. Staff are always really helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and they use great products. Would highly recommend.

  • Honestly the best intimate waxing in London. Quick and as pain-free as it’s gonna get. My favourite therapist is Luciana – she’s such a pro and makes the whole experience easy and stress-free.

  • Just had my very first Brazilian wax and was pretty nervous, but Isobel put me at ease straight away. I felt really cared for and it wasn’t embarrassing at all; and not anywhere near as painful as I’d feared.

    I’ve signed up for their special offer of 5 for the price of 4. Isobel has completely changed the way I think about waxing. Thank you!

  • As it was my first waxing I was quite nervous. There was no need to be. The staff were friendly and professional. Eva put me at ease by explaining everything. She did an amazing treatment, virtually pain free. Will definitely be back. Thank you Eva and all the staff .

  • Michaela is hands down the best wax therapist I have ever had. She literally is the best. I am never disappointed when my appointment is with her. She’s professional, quick and always does an immaculate job. I actually look forward to my appointments which is quite rare. I can’t recommend her enough!
