What to Wear for Your Boudoir Session

Boudoir photography is an intimate and empowering way to showcase your sensual side in a personal and artistic way. From the delicate lace of lingerie to the flowing elegance of robes, choosing the perfect attire is crucial to capturing your beauty and allure. A boudoir photoshoot is a chance to embrace and celebrate your unique style, and selecting the right outfit is an opportunity to tell your story and express your personality.

So, let’s explore some of the most popular boudoir attires and find the one that will make you feel confident all throughout.

1. Lingerie

Lingerie is the quintessential apparel for use in a boudoir photoshoot. It is both sultry and refined, making it an excellent choice for a boudoir photograph. There is a wide selection of underwear available, from bodysuits and corsets to bra and thong sets and everything in between. When shopping for lingerie, it is important to find pieces that not only suit you properly but also complement your figure. You can also try out various colors and materials to determine which complements your style the most.

2. Robes

Robes are another common piece of boudoir attire that can lend an air of class and refinement to the photographs you take during your session. You have the option of selecting a robe made of silk, satin, or lace that goes well with your undergarments. During the course of your photo shoot, you might find that switching between different costumes is easier with the help of a robe.

3. Bodysuits

If you don’t feel confident wearing revealing clothing, bodysuits are a wonderful alternative to lingerie that you can wear underneath your clothes. They are figure-hugging, so they can draw attention to your curves, but at the same time, they hide certain areas of your body. You have the option of selecting from a variety of styles, such as sheer, lace, or even leather, depending on your personal preference.

4. Corsets

If you’re looking for that very traditional boudoir piece that can be achieved with the help of a corset. They are available in a wide variety of designs, from traditional steel-boned corsets to contemporary waist trainers. Corsets can be worn on their own, or for a more dramatic impact, they can be paired with lingerie. Or make it really spicy and get a cupless corset. 😉

As a token of appreciation for their future spouse, future brides are giving their partners boudoir photographs at an increasing rate. You have many options when it comes to what to wear to a bridal boudoir photograph, including a bridal robe, lingerie, or even your wedding dress. It is a wonderful opportunity to seize both the splendor and the energy of your very special day.

6. Accessories

Your boudoir photo shoot could benefit from adding some glitz and individuality with the help of some accessories. You are free to accessorize with anything from heels and jewelry to stockings, and body cages. Pick out accouterments that will help you look put together while also boosting your comfort and self-esteem.

I had such an amazing experience! And my husband was pretty much speechless when he opened the book that was made with all the amazing pictures in it! And not to mention the whole boudoir experience was super empowering! Definitely felt amazing after! If your thinking if you should get pictures done just do it! You won't regret it!

"I can't even begin to explain how happy I am with this business. I walked into this shoot SO nervous and had no idea what to expect. From the time I walked through the door to the very end she made me feel so comfortable. Magan has the perfect mix of personality and professionalism while shooting. Safe to say I walked out feeling empowered and sexy. The whole experience was intimate and personal and couldn't have been better. The studio space is very clean and cute. I'm happy to say Magan is now a friend and inspiration to me and I can't wait to work with her again. I will be recommending her to all of my friends and family!"

Sometimes, it takes seeing yourself through the lens of someone else to really open your eyes.
After my boudoir shoot with Magan, I felt more confident in my own body and realized that sometimes what I see in the mirror is not what is actually there. I left that shoot loving my body more, just the way it is.
If you've ever thought about doing a boudoir shoot, NOW is the time and Magan is your girl!

Magan has mastered the art of making anyone and everyone feel welcome and like you’ve known each other for years. She sees things in such a unique way, she shows you the beautiful you that the world sees. She pulls emotion out of you, and makes you into a total goddess. I would recommend Magan to anyone and everyone considering getting a boudoir session or any session with her. Photos you want to stare at for hours and hang on your wall forever.
