We will help you with boudoir photography preparation; as many woman ask how do I prepare for a boudoir photo shoot Boudoir photography preparation is something that we love to go over with you in our meeting. It gives us a chance to come up with different ideas for your session. Below are some ideas that could help you think of other ideas for your session.
QUICK LIST OF LINGERIE STYLES
BRA & PANTY SETS
There are so many different options out there for sexy bra/panty sets out there. When shopping for these, proper fit is extremely important. Be careful of push up bras as they often make you look unnatural. Make sure the area near your armpit looks nice and smooth and you are not coming out of the cups. That makes it more flattering in camera.
Corsets are meant to cinch your waist and give you killer curves. They usually have ties in the back that help create your shape. They are hard to put on, but don’t worry – We can help you!
A bustier is similar to a corset in coverage, but it has cups built in that give nice breast support. They don’t normally cinch the waist like corsets do, but there are some hybrid styles out there that combine a little waist cinching and breast lifting.
A teddy is a garment that covers the torso and crotch in one garment. It is a similar style of garment to a one-piece swimsuit or bodysuit but is typically more sheer and definitely sexier.
A close-fitting, one-piece stretch garment for women. They are considered clothing, but they are great boudoir too!
A baby doll is a short, sleeveless, loose-fitting nightgown. It sometimes has formed cups called a bralette for cleavage with an attached, loose-fitting skirt falling, in length, usually between the upper thigh and the belly button
Shape wear is a type of tight-fitting underwear intended tocontrol and shape the figure. There are many beautiful options out there these days. (Not the ones that are meant to be hidden, but styles that flatter and are also pleasing to the eye).
GARTER BELTS, GARTERS & THIGH HIGHS
A Garter Belt is a belt worn around the waist or hips with attached garters or fasteners to hold up stockings. Sometimes Garters are built into lingerie so a belt isn’t needed. The stockings they hold up are called Thigh Highs (because they pull up to the thigh). There are two different types of thigh highs: Some have a rubber material on the inside to help them stay up. This is REALLY important to know.
If the stockings have the rubber inside they are NOT meant for garters. They are meant to be worn without them. The rubber allows them to stay up on their own. If you try to pair these stocking with garters, they are very hard to attach because of the thickness of them. Stockings without the rubber are much more desirable for garters. There is an art to attaching the stockings. Again, don’t worry, I can easily help you and teach you how it’s done.
Think of them as dresses that are meant to be worn under a dress, often with cups built in for support. Some slips can fit into the shape wear category but many do not.
Clothing is a fantastic option for boudoir! It might sound counter intuitive but think about a hot leather jacket. Some use ripped jeans and a sexy bra. Maybe off the shoulder sweaters or a sheer T-shirt. Seems like there are so many options for clothing that can be just as sexy maybe sexier than lingerie.
Try a beautiful bra with a full skirt, a tank top with a Lacey thong or high socks. Why not have fun and be creative?!
