Top 10 Things You Already Have in Your Closet That are Perfect for Boudoir
Just because you’re choosing an upscale boudoir studio for your portraits doesn’t mean you have to go way over budget coming up with a look for your boudoir photoshoot. In fact, there are plenty of things you are likely to already have at home that can add a steamy layer to your photoshoot all while supporting your comfort at the same time. Here are the top ten things you are likely to have in your closet that can take your boudoir photos to the next level!
1. Silky Robe, Slip, or Body Suit:
Do you have a sultry slip or soft and indulgent robe that you love to wear? Your boudoir photoshoot is the perfect time to bust this out of your closet. Not only will silk feel amazing on your skin, but it will translate to truly sensual and intimate photos—a win-win!
2. Your Most Dramatic High Heels
Sometimes, nothing beats a sexy pair of high heels…or, for that matter, any other type of shoe or boot that turns you on! Selecting your hottest footwear can add an element of extra depth and appeal to your photos, leaving the viewer wanting more.
3. Fishnet Stockings or Tights:
As for any stockings or tights you have that make you feel sexy and fun, now is the time to break them out. Needless to say, these would go flawlessly with your high heels…
4. A Crop Top and Your Favorite Pair of Jeans
There are all kinds of ways to enjoy intimate photography, and sometimes less skin exposure can be even more moving. Try your favorite pair of jeans (the kind that makes your butt look amazing), a crop top, and no bra. If you like retro stuff, find your high-waisted jeans for an even more coy game of peek-a-boo.
5. A Chunky Sweater:
Boudoir is all about capturing you feeling your best. For some people, nothing says “sensuality” like a luxurious sweater. Donned in your favorite pair of underwear and a chunky sweater, you will not only feel right at home during your shoot, but you will add an element of class to your intimate portraits.
6. A Little Black Dress:
Everyone’s got at least one—right?! This classic look will not only make for stunning portraits that age well but may even be one of the most flattering outfits you can wear to your shoot. For additional depth, talk to your professional photographer about whether or not black and white photos are an option!
7: Your Most Luxurious Sheets or Blanket:
We all know you have at least one luxurious piece of bedding that you love to lounge in. All we’ll say is never underestimate the power of bare skin against draped fabric…not a bad deal for rooting around in your closet!
8. A Plain White T-Shirt:
Another classic look is a plain white t-shirt. Again, this means you will likely end up with tasteful photos that appreciate with time, offering a clean, simple look to your photos where your inner beauty really gets to take center stage. Now, the real question: pants, or no pants?
9. Job- or Hobby-Specific Clothing:
Like to ride horses, put out fires, or paint portraits? Bring your passion to the photoshoot with you through your hobby- or work-related clothing. This brings your personality into the shoot with you and can make for a really memorable and personalized experience.
10: A Little Something Dangerous:
Want to explore your dangerous side or your inner femme noire? While this might not be in your closet per se, it is likely you have some form of self-defense that makes you feel powerful and in control—even if it’s just a baseball bat or a metal keychain like those made by Alyssa D. Silos that add a serious bite to your punch. (Before you go bringing in kitchen knives or firearms into the boudoir studio willy-nilly, however, ask your photographer if they have props you can use that will translate to the vibe you’re going for. If you have any doubts about what is reasonable to bring to your boudoir session, always contact your photographer first!)
Wherever You Are in Your Journey, You Deserve the Boudoir Experience
The best boudoir photoshoots are the ones where you feel like you can be your best self and have fun. The contents of your closet are already a reflection of who you are and what you love—and they also have the benefit of being paid for already. This means you can spend less time worrying about how you are going to afford your upcoming boudoir photoshoot and more time feeling comfortable in your own skin.
