"What Should I Wear for My Boudoir Session"
Thats a great question, and one I get asked often!
There is so much lingerie out there, and it can be frustrating trying to find the right piece for yourself...especially when some are made of no more than string and tassel! We come in all different shapes & sizes, and there is a style of lingerie that is perfect for you and your body! Planning your outfits should be fun! Deciding between lace, straps, colour or neutral, sweet or sexy - variety is the spice of life - so try on lots, keep it classic and find something that works for you!
If lingerie doesn't feel like you - don't forget, you can always go for something that you've worn on a daily basis! A t-shirt with the right pair of panties, and a little side knot - you know its sexy! Even a sweater can be incredible!! And if you find yourself needing help, I always say bring your selection to the session and let me take the wheel from there!
I Have Narrow Shoulders & No Hips...
I would recommend more form fitting lingerie, such as a slip! You'll want to enhance your waist with the lingerie you choose, finding slips & corsets with embellishments around the waist area are a great way to draw attention to the area and create a shapely waist line. If you go with a bra & panty set, choose a set with ruffle detail on the top & bottom to create more shape!
I Have Broad Shoulders & Bust, and No Hips...
The best way to play up your shape here is with lingerie that defines your waist, and gives the illusion of more curves! What do I recommend? The sexy bustier or corset! These pieces add shape to your mid-drift by cinching your waist in, thus creating more shape in your hips and upper body - giving you more of an hourglass look. You can wear lacy thongs, brazilian bottoms, or a dainty panty with corsets or bustiers! Often bustiers & corsets have garter attachments so you can add some sexy stockings to the mix for a different look!
I Have Fuller Hips & a Smaller Bust...
You'll want show off all your best assets, to do that, you'll want lingerie that balances out your top and bottom. To balance things out, you'll need to draw the eyes up! Choose a sexy slip or teddy with a plunging neckline and a halter top. One of my favourite items out there is the one piece halter Teddy! Its fitted like a one piece swimsuit, and with the right plunge it will balance out your shape! Add a chunky bracelet to the mix and you're golden!
The Hourglass. My Hips & Bust are Pretty Equal, and I Have a Narrow Waist...
There are some great options for lingerie, and you can't go wrong with too many items! A simple bra & panty set will really show off your shape, if you want to sex it up a little more, try a Teddy! A slip will really accentuate all the great curves you're rocking!
WHAT TO AVOID
We've talked about what is best for your body shape, perhaps this is a good time to bring up what doesn't work, at least in your boudoir session! There aren't too many pieces of lingerie that I would tell a woman not to buy, but a baby doll is one of them! Baby Dolls are the yoga pants of the lingerie world. While they are comfortable, they don't offer your body what it most desires: SHAPE. Typically designed to hug the bust and flare out (an empire effect), they just don't cut it in a boudoir session. You don't throw your yoga pants on for a girls night on the town! You can also toss Push-Up bras from the mix! Although amazing in your t-shirt, or that sexy little dress you just bought, they don't work for the camera! They gape when you're on your back, and they gape when you're on your stomach...sadly they just don't cut it in your boudoir session either! Last but not least, the string thong! This is the one that looks like a nicely decorated piece of dental floss. Perfect to avoid the lines in your tights, or little black dress - but they don't flatter your body lines! Here's a few examples of "What Not to Wears'"
When you're on the hunt for the perfect piece, as yourself - What is your favourite asset?
Now...lets celebrate your fabulous shape with lingerie that shows it off!
