Step Inside Our Boudoir Lingerie Closet

Don’t be afraid to ask a worker, friend, or even your boudoir photographer for help when trying to find the perfect outfit. When you shop at a boutique or storefront dedicated to lingerie, they will help you with size and measure you.

Start by figuring out what look you want to go for: Do you want dramatic, sexy, classy, elegant, pinup, bridal, or tasteful nudes? Figuring out your boudoir wardrobe can be very exciting! Choose your favorite colors and try on plenty of various types of lingerie. You might end up with something you didn’t think you would like.

Quick tips:
It’s always a great idea to bring along one piece of clothing that adds a boost to your chest. Anything with an underwire or extra shaping; like a push up bra or corset.

Try on different textured outfits. This could be satin, lace, mesh, net, beading, etc.

Don’t be afraid to try out bodysuits, corsets, thigh highs, stockings, knee-high socks, teddys, high-waisted underwear, and slips. You’d be surprised to see what flatters you the most!

Find two to three different types of shoes to bring to your session. Heels are defiantly something to bring as they lengthen your leg! Even a cute running shoes can be spunky and fun! It’s a great idea to stay away from flats/thong sandals.

If shopping is not your thing or don’t have the budget for a wardrobe, no worries, Chantal Benoit Photography has got you covered with her lingerie closet. Check it out.
