What To Wear For Your Boudoir Photography Session

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!
