What to wear for your perfect Boudoir photography session

 This handy guide will help you with outfit ideas for your perfect boudoir photography session.

The beautiful thing about boudoir is that there is no proper outfit to wear as anything goes. There is no perfect image, no perfect body type, no perfect age. With the right posing and lighting, anybody can look beautiful in a boudoir session. You can wear anything from sexy lingerie or your guy’s favourite t shirt to a simple white sheet. This guide will give you some inspiration and I hope it will put some concerns to bed for you.

If you have any questions at all, I am a phone call away on 0402 230 669 or email me at karen@deanagar.com.au.

Two piece lingerie 

A two piece set is probably the staple of boudoir but by no means the only option. Some sets can be very expensive but you can get some really nice lingerie from KMart & similar stores. It is great to treat yourself to expensive lingerie but if you have a limited budget just stick to the basic black, white or cream and find something that is soft, feminine and lacy. You can’t go wrong with that. Don’t worry if you cant afford a suspender belt or stockings as we have white and black belts and a range of stockings for your use.

We prefer underwear with a nice lacy side as g-strings tend to look quite hard at the sides. A nice brazilian cut is perfect if you can find that. Some ladies come in to us with 6 or more sets of lingerie which is really not needed. 2 sets are just fine if that is all that your budget can stretch to.

One piece teddy or corset

A nice lace teddy or bodysuit is perfect, especially if you need to cover stretch marks or if you are self conscious about your tummy. They are sexy and elegant and flattering to all body types.

There are so many different designs, colours and fabrics to choose from but once again, if you are unsure on colours, stick to the basic black, white or cream. They will always work and they will be easier to team up with our sets and props.

Corsets do seem to come and go. Sometimes in style and sometimes not but never the less, they do look amazing in photographs. They are extremely flattering on all body types and can give off a particular sex appeal that can add mood to your image. We have a few boned, satin corsets in different colours to fit sizes 8 – 14 in the studio or bring your own in.

Garter belt, stockings & heels

Most women have no idea how to put the garter and stockings on but never fear, I have become expert at it. Garter belts are great if you have a problem area on the tummy to hide and teamed with stockings they look fantastic and sexy. Just make sure that your stockings are the right size and not too tight.

We have a black and a white garter belt that you are welcome to use as well as a range of stockings if you do not have any of your own. Stockings and garter belts are also great to use in the image as a focus such as pulling them on or attaching the stocking to your garter.

Lace, feathers or fur

Robes are fantastic to wear either over the top of your lingerie or by themselves with nothing underneath. They are soft and feminine but can also be sexy and seductive. Bring your own favourite robe or use ours. We have a black, white and pink lace robe for your use.

Little tops are great to team with knickers and stockings for a sexy but slightly more covered look.

If you love the “Movie Starlet” look, why not go old style with a feather boa or fur stole. We have feather boas available in white, red & black plus a fur stole, or bring your own. 

Fur Jackets also look awesome with lingerie underneath or be brave and go nude with your favourite heels.

Men’s oversize shirt

Mens business shirts are very popular and make great boudoir outfits. It is one of our favourites and is so versatile. Wear it with lingerie underneath, or just a sexy pair of lacy knickers, or completely naked.

The shirt can cover as much or as little as you like. Bring in ‘his’ favourite shirt or use ours, the choice is yours. We have a white business shirt in small, medium and large.

Oversized jumper

The oversized jumper would be one of our most popular outfit choices. They are perfect for boudoir, especially for those who are a little shy and want to be sexy without showing too much skin.

We have three jumpers here for your use. We have the cream cable knit jumper, grey button front and the white plain jumper (all pictured on this page). They will fit sizes 8 – 14. If you are over a size 14 you would need to bring in your own jumper.

Be sure to bring a matching pair of knickers also and preferably with a nice lace side. We do have lace knickers available in white and black but it is a good idea to bring your own if you have them.

The white sheet

This is a favourite of many women as it is the ultimate in “leaving very little to the imagination”. It is easy and makes a fantastic extra look. You can appear to be naked while revealing less flesh than lingerie and it can be great to hide those problem areas if you need to. Team it up with simple white lace knickers and you have a sexy, playful look. There is no need to bring a sheet. We have that here for you.

Who doesn’t love a great pair of jeans and it seems that the more ripped they are, the better. We have an awesome pair of ripped up jeans which will fit size 8 – 12 that you are most welcome to use or bring your’s or your guys favourite pair.

They can be worn topless or with your favourite bra or bikini top or with a sexy singlet knotted at the front or side. Leave unbuttoned or unzipped for an extra sexy look or go for the playful girl next door look.

If in doubt, wear nothing.

We have perfected the ‘nudoir’ session so that our lovely ladies can have the option of combining a little bit of art nude in with their boudoir session. Once again, we pose these sessions according to your specific body type.

If you are feeling brave and wish to shoot nudoir then we are your best choice. Combine a few tasteful art nude images with your boudoir session and have an amazing variety of images for your keepsake album or to keep as private digital files.
