A boudoir photo-shoot is an exciting way to showcase an intimate side to your personality, and a great way to show off your incredible assets in photos you will have for a lifetime. Although a boudoir shoot is an exhilarating endeavour, sometimes picking the right outfits can be a bit daunting – especially if you’re new to the wonderful world of lingerie. Luckily I have a few tips to keep in mind when shopping for outfits for your photo-shoot!
1. Emphasize Your Assets
Start your shopping trip by considering what your favourite features are about yourself, and think about how you want to emphasize those features. If you want to show off your legs, consider ditching the boy-short panty and opting for something that sits a little higher on the leg, such as a bikini style bottom. If you love your shoulders or back, go for a slinky piece with thin straps, halter straps, or no straps (corsets, corsets, and more corsets!)
2. Minimize Your Discomforts
While we like to showcase your fabulous features in our photos, it’s also important to dress for your comfort level. If you feel self conscious about your tummy, look for babydolls, flowy chemises, or teddies. If you are looking to hide shoulders, arms, or create length, consider wearing a lace or sheer robe and leaving it open to create long vertical lines.
3. Remember, This Is About You!
As I stated above, it is so important that you keep within your comfort zone and to stay true to yourself. If you love colour and texture, bling and sparkles, or vintage glamour, we want to create photos that represent your unique style and personality. Don’t be afraid to wear that strategically torn Metallica t-shirt or your full length vintage style chemise – whatever makes you feel great!
4. Ask For Help!
Don’t be afraid to ask a sales associate for help. They will very likely have great product knowledge and will be able to help you pick something that looks great, makes you feel comfortable, and flatters your figure. Additionally your photographer should be knowledgeable about what garments will be flattering for your body shape and style of photo-shoot, so ask for pointers during your consultation.
Good luck on your shopping trip, and I hope these tips help you on your way to finding the perfect outfits!
