What to Wear During Your Boudoir Photography Session When Lingerie Isn’t Your Thing

 boudoir photography session at Lucidaré Studio is a great way to let loose, feel sexy, and boost your confidence.

Whether your session is intended as a gift for your special someone, or if you’re doing the shoot as a treat for yourself, it’s important that you feel comfortable. For some of us, that may mean a matching lingerie set and sky high heels, but for most that’s a bit out of our comfort zone.

If lingerie isn’t necessarily your thing, there are a number of other wardrobe options you can consider for your shoot.

Here are some of our favorites:

Oversized sweaters

You may think that oversized sweaters would make you look lumpy or shapeless, but that is absolutely not the case. Choose to wear a delicate bra underneath and let it poke through just a bit, or decide to go braless and let your natural shape take center stage.

Pair your sweater with a sexy pair of panties and you’ll be amazed at how sultry your images can turn out.

Button up shirts

Whether it’s your significant other’s button up shirt or your own, you can use it to strategically show a bit of skin. Typically, images are sexier when you’re alluding to or teasing your ‘assets’ in the picture, rather than putting everything you’ve got on display. Unbuttoning a dress shirt ‘just so’ will be sure to result in a fiery, teasing image.

Comfy t-shirts

A comfortable t-shirt paired with a pair of panties is a great way to capture more playful, innocent images. If playful isn’t your style, throw on a pair of high heels and your images will take on an entirely new vibe. A t-shirt can be incredibly versatile during your shoot, whether you’re wearing it or using it to strategically cover yourself.


A beautiful, flowing robe is an excellent wardrobe choice for any boudoir shoot. You can reveal as much or as little as you like, and it can help to camouflage any problem areas you’re not so fond of.

Paired with some simple lingerie, a touch of lipstick, and soft curls and you’ll be sure to look like a bombshell!

At the end of the day, as long as you feel confident and comfortable during your shoot, your images will turn out wonderfully. You’ll look just as sexy with a confident smirk in a cozy sweater as you will in a see-through corset and heels. Be yourself, and you’ll see just how sexy you really are!
