Congratulations on booking your boudoir photography session. It’s going to be an amazing experience. One of the keys to success is bringing a proper wardrobe with you that not only is beautiful, but flatters your body as well. Here is a cheat sheet that will help you shop and know what to bring with you to your session. We hope you find it helpful.
Corsets are meant to cinch your waist and give you killer curves. They usually have ties in the back that help create your shape. They are hard to put on, but don’t worry – your photographer can help you!
A bustier is similar to a corset in coverage, but it has cups built in that give nice breast support. They don’t normally cinch the waist like corsets do, but there are some hybrid styles out there that combine a little waist cinching and breast lifting.
A teddy is a garment that covers the torso and crotch in one garment. It is similar style of garment to a one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit but is typically more sheer and definitely sexier
A close-fitting, one-piece stretch garment for women. They are typically considered clothing, but they are great for boudoir too!
A babydoll is a short, sleeveless loose-fitting nightgown. It sometimes has formed cups called a bralette for cleavage with an attached, loose-fitting skirt.
Garters & Thigh Highs
A Garter Belt is a belt worn around the waist or hips with attached garters or fasteners to hold up stockings. The stocking they hold up are called Thigh Highs.
Heels, Heels, Heels! The higher the better. We suggest bringing a neutral nude platform heel or plain black pair for versatility. If you would like to bring more, then by all means, feel free to do so!
Jewelry can be a beautiful touch to your lingerie, but can occasionally look overdone. Keep in mind that sometimes less is more!
