I am often asked what are best things to wear for boudoir photo shoot? Well let me tell you there are many great items you can choose right out of your own closet. Not every item needs to be lingerie. Choose at least one bra and panty set. Be sure to try on items to make sure they have a proper fit before your session. If you are like me you may still have some lingerie from years ago that you just have not thrown out because it is still perfectly good…however, it may not look the best now.
THINK VARIETY Simple bra and panty sets to strappy complicated to put on by yourself nighties. The more variety the more photo choices you will have. Bra tip: If you are a B or smaller find a bra that has lace around the top of the cup. It will make you look a whole size bigger in photos.
SOMETHING OF HIS Bring something that belongs to your guy. One of his button up shirts and/or his tie. If you or your guy are sports fans wear a sports jersey with some knee high socks. You could even take it a step further and order his favorite team jersey with your name on it or the words sexy. Be creative. The more you put into it, the more he will be blown away.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX Have fun with your outfit choices and jewelry. (yes, don’t forget jewelry, more on that in a minute) You can choose bright colors and even be super wild by wearing mismatched bra and panties. Wear your favorite pair of cowgirl boots and cowgirl hat or if you think your guy would love you in a nurse’s outfit – go for it! Try out something totally off the wall and fun! It can make for a fun and creative photo.
IN THE CLOSET Look through your closet for a see through or lace blouse, a soft sweater you can pull off your shoulders, a vest or sleeveless sweater. Any unique or cropped tops can be cute with panties too.
ALL ABOUT THE GIRLS Bustiers are a great way to create curves and enhance cleavage. If you are smaller then a C cup be sure to bring the kind of bustier that has built in cups. (usually a corset does not have cups but I have seen a few bustiers without cups too) The bustiers without can make you look flat chested and we don’t want that!
SPY SEXY Trench coat with sexy high heels can be oh so mysterious. Don’t forget to look through your coat closet. If you have a form fitting sexy coat bring it along. You know he fantasizes about you showing up to his office in nothing but a coat and heels.
ON TREND Rompers have been all the rage lately and are not only cute but can be super sexy.
LEGS, LEGS AND MORE LEGS Almost every woman brings fishnets and/or thigh highs to her session. My number one suggestion is if you plan to wear them with a garter belt, buy the kind without the plastic stay ups. If you plan to not wear a garter then the plastic stay ups are a must. Oh and did I mention garters can be a sexy little add on to any panty and bra set? Yes it can!
RED IS THE NEW BLACK Many women come to their shoot with almost all black lingerie…snooze…Bring color!! The more variety the better. Red is always pretty damn hot.
MAKE A STATEMENT Don’t forget jewelry A statement necklace can be cool for a few images and bring a few choices in earrings and rings as well. Long necklaces make for great props and short colorful pieces can add drama.
THREE INCHES OR MORE And most of all don’t forget to bring some killer high heels! Nude heels can go with many outfit choices. Black heels are a staple. However, anything strappy, studded or with bling is a must bring. The higher the better. Try to stay away from platform and wedges for your shoot.
