What Should You Wear to a Boudoir Session? Here are 3 Tips to Get You Ready to Rock Your Session

I want you to feel comfortable during your boudoir session.  That means if you feel sexy and gorgeous in frill and lace, than maybe a leather bondage suit shouldn’t be your first purchase for your boudoir session. However, if you already own said leather bondage suit, than bring that bad boy!

Here are 3 tips on what to bring to get you ready to rock your boudoir session:

  1. Accentuate the Positive

Identify your specific body type, and buy outfits that flatter that body type.  Don’t worry about what works well for other body types.  Purchasing well-fitting and quality pieces for your body type helps you to worry less about not having the “perfect body”, and more on accentuating your “positive assets” - the parts of your body you love the most.

2. Lingerie

There are several different types of lingerie options, but I find that bodysuits and teddies (which you can think of like lacy bodysuits) work well for varying body types, and in various sizes.

3. Non-Lingerie

Don’t want to wear lingerie? I have several dress options to choose from.  Going for the more girl next door look?  Booty shorts, large button up sweaters and tube socks are a fun option.  Panties and a simple t-shirts are another great option.  Note that T-shirts are not a one size fits all option.  You can bring a crop tops, a form fitting t-shirt, a white t-shirt (to get wet), or even a t-shirt that skims your body and falls near the hips (clients can pull and tug on a longer t-shirt for a more sultry look).

For anything that you bring, make sure it fits your body.  I don’t recommend bringing anything that will leave marks on your skin (like a too tight fitting bra that once removed will leave indentions and/or cause marks on your skin) or have you feeling uncomfortable. 

 If your still concerned with what to wear, that’s not a problem.  I have you covered with a lingerie style closet with well over 300 pieces for you to choose from!  The sizes in my lingerie style closet range from XS to 3X and are designed for all different body types (with additional sizes available upon request). 

 I ask everyone to bring a nude thong, a black thong, one matching bra and panty set, and 2-4 pairs of your favorite high heels.

 Finally, note that if clothing just isn’t your thing, you always have the option of doing your boudoir session fully nude!

What was your motivation for scheduling a boudoir session?

I’ve always wanted to do one, but was to afraid or nervous I guess. But then winning the contest [held this summer for ladies in my VIP Boudoir Facebook Group] pushed me to just do it, and I am so glad I did!

What made you choose Intimate Lens Studio?

Based on your experience, what would you tell someone who was thinking about booking a boudoir session with Intimate Lens Studio?

Just do it, it’s such a great experience. You don’t even know what to expect or how to feel until your in front of the camera and then when you see your pictures, it’s such a confidence booster!

Anything I haven't asked that you would like to add?

Ore is amazing! She makes you feel so strong and comfortable you forget your in front of a camera with no clothes on.

Nick is a beautiful soul, inside and out, and I wanted to share some of what he wrote about his decision to do male boudoir and his experience from being behind the camera to in front of the camera:

Arielle - a/k/a "Wonder Woman" | Oklahoma City Boudoir Session

After clients have stepped in front of the camera, I have them fill out a post-session questionnaire. This gives me insight into their experience and helps me create the best experience for future clients. I’ll be sharing their answers as well as boudoir portraits from their sessions. First up is Arielle.

During my pre-session consultation with Arielle, we talked about what she wanted to wear for her session. While we were discussing wardrobe options, she mentioned having a Wonder Woman cosplay costume! Umm, yes please! I encouraged her to bring it, and we had a blast incorporating the costume into her session and having her channel her inner warrior.

I’ve been in love with these custom made wings from Leah Marie Couture for a while.  These wings are hand crafted from ostrich feathers, and the way they move and flow with the body allow the possibility for some creative boudoir photographs.
