Lingerie Glossary

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

Balconette bra – a sexy, 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 sexy 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.

  • Have been coming here for over 5 years when I had my first ever Hollywood – I was scared and nervous! It is one of the best salons around – great products, calming atmosphere and fabulous staff. Nicole has made my laser experience so much fun and has always listened to any need I’ve had, she is precise, considerate and a joy to be around! The manager Hannah is also the best and is very thoughtful and kind. Would definitely recommend to any and all friends/family.

  • Best waxing experience I’ve ever had! Martina was wonderful and the products they use are amazing and make a really comfortable experience. I’m a customer for life.

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • My fourth wax at Strip and as always a positive experience! All the ladies are so lovely, professional and knowledgeable, doing whatever they can to ensure you get the best results and have the best experience – I could not recommend Strip enough! Can’t wait to go back again!

  • 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.

  • 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!!

  • Got a Brazilian here and it’s the most painless waxing experience I’ve ever had. Also very good wax job, and she really made me feel relaxed and comfortable too… which is not easy when you’re half naked getting waxed! Will def go back.
