I’ve had lots of inquiries about boudoir shoots during the last few weeks, and they almost always are accompanied by the same question: “What do I wear?”. Today, I wanted to showcase several different types of looks for a boudoir shoot, as well as talk about some ways to figure out what your personal lingerie style is.

The Girl Next Door Look:

This Betty set from Elomi Lingerie is a sexy yet simple way to dress for a boudoir shoot. I love the vintage details in combination with the modern cut, and red is always a favorite around Valentine’s Day. This type of look is great if you’re pretty comfortable with your body, but don’t want to bare all. It highlights your cleavage and your stomach, and will give your shoot a relaxed and natural look.

The Vintage Look:

Kiss Me Deadly is a wonderful vintage inspired company that make some truly unique pieces. This skirt combines sapphire blue satin with sexy garters, and can be worn as underwear or as outerwear. This is a piece that you could dress up with a sheer blouse for a shoot, or just wear with a bra and fishnets. This style of skirt works especially well on tall women, and the wrap design allows you to show as much or as little as you want.


The Modern Woman:

The Hera Robe is from the newest Priscilla Jade line, and currently comes in three unexpectedly different colorways. I’m enthralled with the black and yellow version, but those wanting a more traditional Valentine’s Day look have plenty of red to choose from! Robes are great for women who may want more coverage for their boudoir shoot, and work beautifully paired with matching panties. Those wanting even more coverage can wear a lacy camisole underneath instead of just a bra.

The Natural Woman:

Marika Vera Lingerie is all about showcasing natural sexuality. Her pieces are luxurious creations made out of chiffon and leather, and the high cut legs will make you look taller. Each piece is cut with discreet openings at the breast to help women embrace their own sexuality. This teddy would be perfect for a shoot that takes a more raw and unpolished approach to sexuality, while still remaining elegant.
