Today we’re talking what to wear to your boudoir session. There are actually lot’s of different things to wear but for now let’s talk about lingerie. When you book a boudoir session with Colleen Michelle Studios, you get a comprehensive Boudoir Prep Guide that includes my recommended lingerie looks, where to shop, what to expect and more. This is a sneak peek at some of the info I send your way.
Planning Your Looks
We recommend planning 3-5 different looks. And by different we mean don’t bring all the same style like 5 two piece sets or 5 bodysuits. Try to mix it up. We always recommend bringing at least one bra and panty set that fits you really well. Most of our clients also wear a bodysuit during their session too.
Within your outfit choices also pay attention to the fabric. Items that are sheer or lace photograph beautifully. You can also mix up these textures from lace, to something silky, to something strappy, etc. If you are interested in doing implied nudes in the sheets, that does count as one outfit so keep that in mind.
When selecting your looks, only bring things to the studio that you absolutely love!! Don’t bring things that are um, ok, or your unsure about. When you’re at home and you put it on, you should feel like “dam, I look good!” That’s what we’re going for. Always, always try everything on before your session.
One of the amazing perks of booking a boudoir session with us is that you have access to the Client Closet! We have tons of pieces from size XS to 3XL. We have all different types of looks – some are more conservative, some are super sexy, we have some two piece looks and a lot of bodysuits, we have lace or no lace. If you didn’t buy any lingerie at all, came to the studio for your session, we would be able to give you everything you need! Read more about the Client Closet and see some of the looks we have here.
My Secret Lingerie Wish-list
There are TONS of options of where to buy lingerie. Most women know about Victoria’s Secret, and I love their looks!! But there are other places where you can get amazing looks as well. In the Boudoir Prep Guide, I give you my top 12 places to shop which are super sexy, but here we’re going to talk about one place. One place that almost everyone I know has access to. Yes pretty much everyone. And it’s shipped directly to your door in about two days. The packages are discreet and don’t let anyone know what you’ve bought, because if you’re like me they come to your house almost every day. Are you guessing it yet??? Yes, the secret is Amazon! Yes, you can find amazing looks on Amazon!!
Amazon is a great place to grab some lingerie. The price point is on the lower side which can help you to try something you may not normally gravitate towards. I will say that the quality is ok, it’s not amazing. You get what you pay for here. It won’t last forever, but it may give you one look that you’ve been wanting.
These looks here both came from Amazon and I would definitely recommend! When purchasing from Amazon, always read the reviews, especially for sizing. I can say the long sleeve green bodysuit tends to run a bit small, especially in the torso. The three piece green lingerie runs true to size.
I’m sharing my secret wish-list with you!! These are some of my favorite looks that I either have in the client closet or would recommend you grab. You can purchase these for your boudoir session or just for home! Let me know what you think of the wish-list below!
