Shopping for lingerie and looking for wardrobe ideas for your boudoir photoshoot doesn't have to be hard or daunting...in fact, it can be fun! I want to share some thoughts and ideas to keep in mind when planning boudoir wardrobe outfits. It a good idea to bring four complete outfits including shoes with you, and accessories if you desire. When selecting your wardrobe think about how they will look together as a set. Do the colors clash or compliment one another? Is there variety? Bringing four black bras and panties doesn't create variety. I recommend bringing no more than two black outfits that are completely different. For example, you can have a sexy black bra and panty set, and a sultry black bodysuit. I don't recommend all of your lingerie pieces to be bold, bright, or too colorful. It's ok to have one piece that stands out, however, you don't want the pieces competing against each other. Sticking to a neutral color palate is best, and adding one piece with color for a little extra something would be a better choice.
A note on bras. While padded bras look great underneath your clothes, they are not a good choice when it comes to boudoir wardrobe. The problem is when laying on your back, breasts will slide into armpits and flatten out. What you're left with is a gap between the padded bar and your skin. You're are better off choosing a bra the clings and moves with your body, thus avoiding unnecessary gaps! Below are two bras that would accomplish this goal.
Next, let's talk bodysuits! Sometimes referred to as teddies. This is a great choice if you are trying to hide the middle section. Many woman are self conscious about this area, especially after having babies. If you have large breasts or natural breast that have lost their youthful bounce, I would recommend a bodysuit with an underwire that will offer support. Small breasted and women with implants can get away without an underwire.
