So you have decided that you are going to have a boudoir photo shoot. You have booked in advance and now it’s time to think about what to wear.
This really is where the fun begins. It’s time to go out and buy that gorgeous lingerie set you have had your eyes on! Think variety, luxury, lacy, silky, textured, coloured lingerie. Don’t panic I can help you think about what to bring, I’ve been doing this for a long time and I know what works for all body types.
What you are planning to do with your beautiful images. Are you going to give them as a gift to your partner? What are their favourite colours or styles? Do they have a favourite lingerie set? Which sets do you love? Bring them all we can select the pieces that will work best for you. I love it when clients bring lots of choice, it means that I can create lots of variety in your photo shoot.
Lots of my lovely clients ask what to avoid. My number one tip is to make sure that you are wearing well fitted lingerie, too tight or loose won’t be flattering. Go and treat yourself and be measured correctly for a bra. I recommend this to so many clients, who often they find out they have been wearing the wrong size bra! My pet hate is T-shirt bras, yes they are amazing under a T-shirt, but that is really where they belong, in a boudoir photo shoot they are BORING!
Shoes are also incredibly important, they really help to tone and shape your legs. I’m going to add another post soon about shoes (I love shoes). The most flattering ones for your boudoir shoot are high heeled court shoes or stilettos. Definitely avoid wedges, they may be very comfy, but they look ugly in the images. Louboutins have the most amazing shapes which look incredible in photos and that red sole – heaven!
