- Classic bra and panty set
- Topless with denim shorts or fishnet stockings
- Artistic nudes
things to consider
The style of panty you choose (g-strings are a no no! Thongs and cheekies are the best!) and what type of bra fits you the best. I know its tempting to pull out a bra you might wear every day – but try to look for something a little sexier, special. Something that is meant to be seen!
Mom boobs: Yep, I can say that because I'm rocking a pair myself... If this is an issue for you, SUPPORT SUPPORT SUPPORT! Don't bring a sheer bra without support if you don't love the way your breasts look naturally.
THE BOOTY SHOT:
If a great tush shot is on your list, I recommend panties that show just enough, but not too much. I prefer cheeky or Brazilian bottoms over thongs. Many teddies and body suits are cut in the back to show off some tush. Those are a great option too! (Please stay away from Gstrings – they don’t always flatter!)
We all want long gorgeous legs and even if you don’t have them, we can give the illusion that your legs are longer than they really are with a few simple tricks. Look for high cut undies, teddies, bodysuits. The higher the leg opening, the longer your legs will look. You can also bring a pair of nude heels which will add some length.
Always stick with a style that will still show off your shape – like a bodysuit or a slip. The worst thing you can do is hide behind a lot of fabric – like a babydoll for example. More fabric will only make you look heavier than you actually are. We want to see your gorgeous shape no matter what you wear or how covered you are.
THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
If you have a curvier waistline, a lacy bralette and panty set under a blazer is an option you might not have thought about. With posing guidance, it's easy to accentuate the smallest part of your waist in a blazer that is tapered in the middle and because there's very little under it, it's still sexy as hell.
Also, pairing pieces with accents such as the silver buttons on this boyfriend top with matching panties helps to accentuate the curves of your body.
Corsets are meant to cinch your waist and give you killer curves. They usually have ties in the back that help create your shape, and might also have boning inside for a more sleek look. They are hard to put on, but I’ve got your back girl – I will 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.
BRA & PANTY SETS
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’re not coming out of the cups. (I highly recommend being fitted - Victoria’s Secret does it, just ask!)
Clothing is a fantastic option for boudoir! It might sound counterintuitive but think about what makes YOU feel sexy; ripped jeans and a sexy bra; off the shoulder sweaters; a sheer T-shirt. There are so many options for clothing that can be just as sexy, if not sexier, than lingerie.
You can also mix the two. Try a beautiful bra with a full skirt, a tank top with a lacy thong or high socks. You can definitely have fun and be creative!!
I recommend bringing at least one pair of black or nude heels with you. No ankle straps please!! If you want to bring more shoes, fantastic, but keep in mind that we may not use them.
Feel free to bring any jewelry you might want to wear. I can help you choose what looks nice with your outfit and what will flatter depending on the poses that you will be doing.
I HATE props. This session is about YOU. Your body, your features, your eyes, hair, skin. It's not about a fishing pole or a frickin poker set for God sake. If you are planning 1 or 2 photos as a gift for a significant other (because that's all they get! The rest are for YOU WOMAN!), bring a tie or a piece of jewelry you've been gifted. Less is more, remember that!
Try to stick with simple classic colors: Black, white, gray, nude. Complementary colors to offset your hair/eyes are also ok. For example, if you have green eyes, a deep purple will accentuate your eyes beautifully. Stay away from anything bright pink, turquoise, orange, bright red, bright green, etc.
WHERE TO BUY
I ALWAYS recommend visiting your local lingerie boutiques to get your lingerie. This way you can get help from knowledgeable ladies about what you should consider in their store. However, there are some gorgeous options for lingerie online- so here are a few that I recommend for their great selection and quality.
* REMEMBER* If you do decide to purchase online, make sure to order far enough ahead of time that you can return/replace the lingerie if it does not fit you correctly.
Bringing properly fitting outfits is key to achieving beautiful, sexy photos! The goal is to feel comfortable in what you have on, and let me take care of the rest. If you don't feel comfortable, it will show in your facial expressions and body language, and unfortunately that's not something I can fix.
