What should I wear for my boudoir session?

Boudoir photography is all about capturing intimate and sensual images that celebrate your body! One of the most important aspects of a boudoir session is choosing the right outfits. The right outfits can make you feel confident, sexy, and empowered. In this article, we'll discuss some of the best outfits for a boudoir session.

1. Lingerie

Lingerie is a classic choice for boudoir photography. It's designed to flatter your curves and highlight your best features. There are many styles of lingerie to choose from, including corsets, bodysuits, bras, panties, garter belts, and stockings. Opt for lingerie that fits well and makes you feel comfortable and confident.

2. Bodysuits

Bodysuits are the PERFECT choice for boudoir photography. They're form-fitting and can be made from a variety of materials, including lace, mesh, and satin. Bodysuits can be paired with stockings or high heels for a sexy and sophisticated look. Bodysuits hug your curves and make you look awesome in photos no matter what size or shape you are!

3. Robes

Robes are a versatile and elegant choice for boudoir photography. They can be worn over lingerie or bodysuits and can be used to create a variety of looks. Choose a robe made from a silky or satin material for a luxurious and sensual feel or lace for a sexy feel. Robes are a great way to feel a bit more covered up or modest without losing the sexy!

4. Corsets

Corsets are a classic boudoir staple that never goes out of style. They're designed to cinch in your waist and accentuate your curves. Corsets can be paired with stockings, garter belts, and high heels for a classic and sexy look. The only thing about corsets is that they can be difficult to move in and pose in, so keep this in mind. You may want to only bring ONE corset–don’t make all your outfit choices corsets or you will be quite limited in the photos you get back!

5. Oversized Shirts/Sweaters/Blazers

Oversized shirts can be a fun and playful choice for boudoir photography. They can be worn over lingerie or as a stand-alone outfit. Choose a shirt made from a soft and comfortable material, such as cotton or silk, and pair it with thigh-high socks or knee-high boots for a cute and sexy look. Blazers give you some coverage for your first outfit and look super boss-babe-sexy! We often start our sessions off in this type of outfit so you begin your session the most covered up and then we slowly move to the more revealing outfits to help build up your comfort level as we go!

6. Swimwear

Swimwear can be a great choice for boudoir photography, especially if you have an outdoor boudoir shoot. Choose a swimsuit that flatters your body and makes you feel confident. You can also pair your swimsuit with a sarong or cover-up for a less revealing look.
