A few months ago we did a styled editorial boudoir shoot for J’attire Lingerie, a local boutique offering gorgeous intimates that are begging to be photographed. Their lingerie is unique and well designed…the detailing is feminine yet sexy and perfect for a boudoir photo shoot. They have a nice selection of sizes (even some larger bra cup sizes) and their corset/bustier selection is lovely – lots of different colours and patterns.  J’attire is located at 2987 Granville St. in Vancouver.

Finding outfits to wear for your boudoir shoot is half the fun! Today’s post is meant to inspire ladies to raid their closet (as well as our favorite lingerie boutiques) before getting in front of the camera. Here are the top 5 items every woman already has in her closet that are perfect for a boudoir photo shoot.

1. Basic black (or white) bra with a cute pair of underwear. 

Black is never going out of style, and you can always dress it up with some gorgeous jewellery. May we suggest Karen Egren NYC?

 

2. A cardigan or sweater that can fall off the shoulder.

We LOVE this look…it’s so sexy and natural. It will bring the eye up to your cleavage (va va voom!) and create a beautiful shape in the waist when buttoned in the middle.

 

3. A button-up shirt.

This can be used in 2 different ways. First, you can borrow one from your honey’s closet, or you may already have one of those gorgeous sheer blouses that are super chic right now. Either way, they are fun to use and are easily paired with a basic bra/panty set.

4. A tank top or camisole.

Sheer lace tank tops are wonderful for a cheeky teaser shot to show off your silhouette.

5. Jeans or leggings.

I don’t think this needs much explanation!

BONUS IDEA: Sheets! 

Another option that requires no wardrobe at all – faux nudes using our white sheets or careful posing and angles. Super simple, natural and incredibly sexy!

“It was an amazing experience. Right from the time I booked in, I started thinking about myself differently, more sexy. The process of finding outfits to wear, although frustrating at times, provided me with the opportunity to put myself in lingerie that made me look and feel wonderful. I had not had that before. I just never made the effort to do that for myself. It’s not comfortable to get nearly naked in front of a camera but knowing that there was no judement on my ‘less than perfect parts’ and that you were focused on highlighting my assets ;) and making me look as good as I possibly could made it very comfortable. I had a really good time and would say that most women should do this for themselves. Even if you ‘think’ you’re doing this for beautiful photos for your partner, it’s really a gift to yourself.”

Wow! What awesome feedback from one of our fabulous boudoir clients. She was absolutely lovely to work with…and can we talk about her fishnet bodystocking? Holy HOT! Loved the way it played up her killer curves…this was a total win in my books. Thank you for allowing us to share some of your anonymous images, ‘Mrs X’!
