We know how overwhelming lingerie shopping can be, so we are here to help you through the process! We can help you decide what is good for portraiture and what is not, also what fits the aesthetic of the studio space we are working in. We suggest visiting our “Boudoir Style Board” on Pinterest using the link at the end of the blog.
Confidence is EVERYTHING!! So we want to make sure that we are helping you pick the best selection to enhance your features and help you feel like that GODDESS that you are!
First let's talk about what we DO NOT recommend…
- BABYDOLL SETS are not tailored to fit any specific body type. They will not provide the camouflage to the midsection that you would think. In fact, they make us look bigger in the belly region. So POOFY!
- Fluorescent colors do not photograph well except in certain settings.
- G-string Thongs
Now that we have got that out of the way let's talk about what is great for EVERYONE!
BODYSUITS & TEDDIES - These are great on just about everyone! They can be as modest or sexy as you like and will always help accentuate your curves. These are our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE on any body type!
BRA & PANTY SETS - Think lace, high waisted or cheeky panties! Satin, velvet or lace bralettes! Sheer and provocative. Underwire lace, long line bras are super sexy showing just the right amount of coverage! An underwire bra will slightly lift and shape your breasts. Remember anything overly padded will create a gap not contouring to your natural shape. High cut bottoms help elongate the legs, and accentuate your booty! High waisted bottoms are super on trend and give a feminine, retro vibe helping to accentuate your curves by drawing towards the most narrow part of your waist.
CORSETS - While they are great for smoothing & slimming the waist, and are classic examples of lingerie when choosing this as an option, be sure that the length of the corset comes to the panty line to help avoid love handles if you don’t love your handles!
ROBES, KIMONOS & SWEATERS - These are a GREAT way to tease the camera! Less is not always more, it’s a great way to leave something to the imagination! Even toss on a bad ass leather or denim jacket with a bra and panty set! Or choose to go topless!
Other things to consider bringing to your session:
- Band t-shirts with some super cute panties
- Shoes….think heels
- Flip flops to walk around in between sets
- Powder to touch up your face if needed
- Lipstick to touch up with
- Your favorite food if that’s your thing! Pizza is sexy, I don’t care who you are!
- Kink accessories, handcuffs, restraints, crops, and we will have a few on hand if that is something you are interested in.
- A robe
- A favorite alcohol bottle and\or a cigar if that is sexy to you and your significant other!
- Fishnet Stockings or Thigh High Stockings
Check out Amazon, SHEIN, Adore Me or Yandy. Be sure to read reviews about sizing and take accurate measurements when ordering online. Make sure you double check your delivery dates when ordering your wardrobe options online.
It’s always great to have options on hand, bring a couple of options with you and we will help you decide if you cannot. You may feel differently once you get on location. Make sure to wear loose fitting clothing and undergarments the day of your session so you do not have indentions on your skin from tight clothes. A loose sports bra or bralette usually leaves less marks than traditional bras, wear loose panties or go commando before your session.
Just remember, when selecting your wardrobe - if you feel confident, that’s what will be portrayed in your images. If you are uncomfortable, that will translate in your photos.
