Trying to figure out what to wear at your boudoir session? We’ve got a few tips to help you out:
1. Wear what makes you feel sexy. Boudoir sessions are all about bringing your sexy side, so if you put something on and you feel uncomfortable, move on to the next option. Consider it sort of like searching for the perfect wedding dress. When you put it on and can’t help but spin in front of the mirror or think, “Heck yes, I’m sexy!” then that is the piece you should wear on shoot day.
2. If you’re doing your session for your significant other, consider what they like, too. Maybe they love you in the color red, or they still talk about that baby doll number you wore a couple of years ago. If they are into sports or a certain hobby, play into that, as well.
3. Opt for lingerie that flatters your favorite parts. If you’ve got an impressive rack (yes, we’re going there), then choose something that really shows off that feature. Maybe you’re a fan of your own derriere and want to show off the goods. Choose a piece that accentuates whatever features you love most about yourself.
4. Footwear matters too. It’s so easy to go into a less-than-classy vibe depending on your footwear. Our suggestion: keep it simple. Patterns, baubles, bells, whistles, and more than three inches of heel can all lean “too much.” Instead, opt for shoes that scream “sexy sophistication.” FYI: Heels can also do a lady good when it comes to posture and accentuating muscles in her legs.
