Houston Boudoir Photographer Lingerie Advice

Houston Boudoir Photographer Lingerie Advice is for the boudoir regular as well as the boudoir newly.  A Boudoir photo shoot is the perfect way to express your love of lingerie and pretend to be a lingerie model for a day.  

What to wear though?  That is totally up to you!  However, lets be clear about lingerie!  It can be some very high end scraps of lace and silk.  However, it can also be your every day skivvies, your boy shorts and a tank top, and those high socks you wear with your boots and a slouchy sweater paired with your spimpiest thong.  

Your style should be reflected in your lingerie choices.  However, if you want to read more about all the components of getting ready for your boudoir session, try reading this Guide to Preparing


Houston Boudoir Photographer Lingerie Advice – First the Rules

I am often asked what is the sexiest Lingerie for a boudoir photo shoot? Here are my basic golden rules.  These rules are mentioned repeatedly in blogs and the Preparation Guide!  Notably, it is very important!

 1.   Bra and panty set – from a simple neutral set to a strappy hot number with chains and locks!  The bras are sometimes so complicated it takes four hands!  Have variety.  Begin by shopping in your own closet. Not every item needs to be over the top lingerie. I generally recommend a light and dark tone at least!  Do bring your favorite!  However, if you think you may be too shy to “get naked” for the white sheet session, please bring a neutral thong and strapless bra!  

2.  Whatever you select should make you feel amazing!  The items should reflect your style and feel good on you. There is no right or wrong!  However, there are styles that will photograph better than others.  Bring extras, that way we can go through selecting the final cut together!

Selecting Lingerie that reflects your personal style is the best way to assure you will feel comfortable in front of my lens. Not only that, if you shop for new Lingerie, if it feels good to you, you will be wearing it again, and again, and again!

3.  Let it fit, let it fit, let it fit!  (I know I have mentioned this many times before).

Bra and Panty

The first items you will be on the look out for is a pretty bra and panty set. I would actually bring a light and dark toned set for variety during your boudoir shoot. You define the sexy in your selection. Is your style soft, feminine, lace, peek-a-boo, see through?

If you are a B cup size or smaller, a little lace around the top of the cup can create some curves. Be sure to assess your bra fit.  Therefore, move in it.   Bend over.  Arch your back. Assess for gappage and caverns of empty space.  Push up bras can cause gappage, so considerso consider this when trying on bras.

The high waisted vintage look panty provides a sexy look and a bit of extra coverage for a common area women are self conscious.   No grandma bloomers please!

Corset/Bustier/Body Suit

A Corset is an undergarment designed to make your  waist look smaller. It is a tool that works with your body to shape an hourglass figure. However, there is very little give in a corset.   Therefore, you may find posing a bit difficult.  Also, many corsets flatten the girls.  I like to accentuate them!   If you rock your corset for your partner, bring it!  

The bustier is form fitting, as the purpose of a bustier is to “boost” the chest. The bustier has the intended purpose of accentuate a women’s curves by pushing the breasts up and creating a more robust cleavage. To provide this shape bustiers often have cup shapes built in to define the bust. However, they are less structured and able to define the waist (not all).    

What I like to see is the body suit.  These are sexy, stylish, and forgiving.  If you need more lift, this item may not be for you.  Try on a few, and you may actually get a little mileage out of this item.

Something of His

This can be his starched white or blue suit shirt and favorite tie.  Sports enthusiast?    Maybe some sexy underwear and your partners favorite team jersey!

Nothing At All

You and a white sheet!  I love a few shots with the pose and a fur, or scarf, or sheer material just adding a bit of coverage for the private areas.  Therefore, when considering nudity or implied nudity, bringing a favorite or meaningful item that can be used to accentuate this pose is a great idea.  Notably, that could be your own throw, a scarf or pashmina.

Great Accessories

As high a heel as you can tolerate!  I love the versatility of nude heels!  Black heels are a staple. However, try to avoid platform or wedges for your boudoir session.   Also, anything strappy, studded, or with bling is sexy if that is your style!

Jewelry can make a wonderfully, sexy statement. A strand of pearls, dangling earrings, or a special bracelet he gave you at your last anniversary.  Have fun while selecting jewelry, but let it reflect your true style.  However, if you are not someone who wears a lot of jewelry, keep it to a minimum.

A long necklace gives you something to do with your hands.  Therefore, lending a bit of believability to poses.  Also, bracelets can break up the length of your arm.  Therefore, if its special, bring it!  But we may need to get a few images without the jewelry.

A slinky robe can be a great accessory, giving your lingerie a different look. Having the belt to hold onto during the shoot will give your hands something to do to give images energy.  However, it should be a solid color.  Also, a bit sheer and/or a bit clingy.  Therefore, accentuating your curves.

A loose sweater can make a knock out look to go with your panties too!  Remember, your style!  

Garter belt with stockings or just thigh high hose can be a sexy addition to your wardrobe for variety and take up oh so little room in you bag of tricks.
