Choosing what to wear for your boudoir photoshoot can be daunting especially if you don't own any lingerie, but the good news is that you don't even have to wear lingerie. There are plenty of other options to wear to your session that will leave you feeling sexier than ever because here's the thing, it doesn't matter what you wear. No matter what you wear your photographer will be able to capture how sexy and confident you are. What matters is that you are feeling confident and that's the most important thing to help you love your photos. That being said, I know it can still be hard to know where to start. That's why I created this free guide of the most popular, as well as some of my favorite boudoir wardrobe choices.

The Many Types of Lingerie

Lingerie is typically the first thing people think when they think of boudoir photography, and I'd say it's the most common thing my clients wear however it's not the only option. There are so many types of lingerie, so there's something for everyone. Whether you want a more modest, conservative outfit or you want the sluttiest of slutty, there's something here for you.

Bodysuit- your typical one-piece, lacy lingerie.

Bikini Underwear- can be paired with a matching bra or bralette for a simple yet sexy look

Thong- can also be paired with a matching bra or bralette or worn alone for an extra spicy vibe

Bralette- similar to a bra, but has no underwire

Bustier- think push-up bra mixed with corset

Camisole- a lacy, silky tank top with matching shorts. Basically sexy pajamas

Babydoll- short, lacy, slip dress. Can be short (chemise) or longer (babydoll)

Corset- tight, sinched-in waist

Garter- a belt with clips typically worn with tights and a matching set of bra and panties

Romper- essentially a babydoll dress with shorts connected

Robe- a great option for a more modest, yet still flirty look

A Cheaper Option

I hear a lot of women say they can't do a boudoir photoshoot because they don't own any lingerie, and I'm here to say that even if you don't own a single lacy item in your drawer, don't let that stop you from booking a session. As long as you own a bra and underwear of the same color, you're golden! No need to go out and buy something extra for your session if it's not your thing!

Spice Up What You Already Own

A great addition to your boudoir wardrobe is an oversized hoodie, t-shirt, button-up, or jersey. This can be your partner's clothing or just something you picked up at a local thrift store. Either way, I love throwing something overtop a matching set!

Like I said earlier, it truly doesn't matter what you wear as long as you feel comfortable, sexy and confident!
