What do I wear on a Boudoir Shoot?

What to wear for a Boudoir Photo Shoot? There are endless options beyond bra and pantie sets!! AND it depends on what you would like to highlight about your body or hide. Do make sure that whatever you choose it's newer or lightly used. Here are some options-

1. Bra & Pantie Sets

 Lets go with the most obvious first. Make sure that both fit you well and aren't either too big OR too small. Get your girls measured and find the right fitting bra!! Go with a variety of colors if you do more than one set!! Obviously Bra/panties show more, so you can always use a lace  or silk robe to add a bit of coverage if needed. You can also add Garter/stockings.

2. Body Suits

These are my favorite for shooting Boudoir, as everyone can find a flattering bodysuit for them. Some show more, some show less, go with what looks good on your body and makes you feel hot!! They can be solid cotton, silk or see through lace!!

3. Corsets

I prefer corsets with some shape for the boobies. Why because the regular type of corsets flatten the breasts and offer ZERO support! If you happen to lift your arms, guess where the corsets goes yup south!! While the boobs will pop out!! Make sure that the corset fits you well. Make sure and sit down to see if it puckers.

4. T Shirts and Sweaters

I often have clients bring in his favorite sport jersey. AND i always struggle with how to make it look sexy!! If you are going with a t shirt with his favorite team on or super hero, go fitted and get a womens version. Or just a thin lace or cotton T shirt can also be sexy with nothing underneath! I also like loose thin sweaters maybe off the shoulder.

5. Shapewear

Why I love shape wear is that it holds in the stomach if thats a problem area and now they are offered in really pretty styles. Go for one that is similar to swimsuit and has support for the girls! This one is by Flexees.

6. Implied nudes

I always offer these to my clients as an option. Implied nude means that you see a lot more skin but not your private parts. When I have shot full on nudes, I have found that my clients go with the ones that are bit more covered up. I use a sheet, some lace or the pose to cover up.
