There are so many options when choosing what to wear for a boudoir shoot, because it's not just about wearing lingerie. It's about being comfortable with what you're wearing.
However, if you decide to indulge in a few pieces of lingerie, choosing the right type can make all the difference in how you feel and how your final images turn out. Here are a few tips to help you select the perfect outfits:
Consider your body shape: Every body is different, and certain styles will flatter certain shapes more than others. For example, if you have a larger chest, a balconette or plunge bra will provide support and lift, while a chemise can help to create a more hourglass shape.
Think about the overall look you want to achieve: Are you going for a classic, elegant look, or something more playful and daring? Different types of lingerie will give different vibes, so think about what you want to convey in your photos.
Be mindful of your comfort level: While a boudoir shoot is a chance to step out of your comfort zone, it's also important to feel confident and at ease in what you're wearing. Choose pieces that you feel comfortable in and that make you feel confident and sexy.
Don't be afraid to mix and match: You don't have to stick to one set of lingerie for your entire shoot. Mixing and matching different pieces can create a range of looks and add variety to your photos.
Invest in quality: While you don't need to spend a fortune on lingerie, it's worth investing in a few high-quality pieces that will look and feel great in your photos.
Some of the most popular and flattering lingerie styles for boudoir shoots include:
Lace bralette and panty sets
Silk robe and slip
Plunge or balconette bras
Sheer bodysuits (one of my personal favorites!)
High-waisted or retro-inspired briefs
Ultimately, the most important thing is to choose lingerie that makes you feel confident and beautiful. A good photographer will be able to work with any outfit to create stunning images that you'll treasure forever.
