Clothes can be frustrating to shop for – especially when it comes to a sensual boudoir session. But, there is something out there for you. We promise!
One thing that’s suggested: Finding a lingerie boutique with real one-on-one help. The people working are experienced with different body types and know what might suit your needs.
Don’t be afraid to ask a worker, friend, or even your boudoir photographer for help when trying to find the perfect outfit. When you shop at a boutique or storefront dedicated to lingerie, they will help size and measure you.
Start by figuring out what look you want to go for: Dramatic, sexy, classy, pinup, bridal, or completely unclothed. Figuring out your boudoir wardrobe can be exciting! Choose your favorite colors and try on plenty of various types of lingerie.
We recommend bringing along one piece of clothing that adds a boost/life to your chest. Anything with an underwire or extra shaping; like a pushup bra or corset.
Try on different textured outfits. This could be satin, lace, mesh, net, beading, etc.
Don’t be afraid to try out bodysuits, corsets, thigh highs, stockings, knee-high socks, teddys, high-waisted underwear, and slips. You’d be surprised to see what flatters you the most!
Find two to three different types of shoes to bring to your session. Heels are a popular choice! Even a pair of cute tennis shoes can be spunky and fun! We suggest staying away from flats/thong sandals.
Finding the perfect boudoir outfit!
Choosing an amazing outfit for your boudoir session can be daunting. But don’t let it scare you too much!
Start by choosing flattering pieces. Identify your best assets and the definite no-no areas you want to conceal. Highlight your curves!
Don’t be afraid of variety and different colors. By selecting multiple types of outfits, you’ll ultimately have diverse images. Black and white are top colors, but don’t be nervous to try colors that match your personality type.
Boudoir isn’t all about lingerie. Some people choose to wear button-downs, t-shirts, jackets, robes, and oversized sweaters and pair them with cute panties.
Don’t forget to actually try them on and test them out. Bend over, sit down, lay down, and do all the stuff in them. If they are too loose or too tight, you won’t feel confident or comfortable in them.
Trust your instinct. If you have to think too hard about an outfit, set it aside and keep looking. If you are drawn to another outfit, don’t be afraid to try it on.
Finding the right pair of shoes!
Shoes or no shoes?
So, you’ve found your sexy lingerie and outfits. Now what? There are so many types of shoes to choose from!
The top go-to pick among women are pointy heels – and NOT open-toed ones! From there, it’s easy. Heels weren’t made to feel good. No, no. They were made to help make your booty and legs look amazing! Choose your favorite color or one that goes along with your lingerie! Black is a color that stands out and makes a statement. If you are a little torn between colors, keep that in the back of your mind!
However, black can look a little wonky with white lingerie. It can really throw it off. Try matching with white, gold, or silver heels! Don’t let it overwhelm you. Simply color coordinate with your outfits. If you have a colorful outfit and are still unsure of what color might flow well with it, go barefoot or opt for nude-colored heels!
We want to add one major tip: If the bottoms of your heels are worn out, don’t bring them and avoid disappointment! Treat yourself and buy new ones!
