Whether you want to give a wedding gift to your soon-to-be husband or just want to bring some fun element into your relationship, a boudoir photo shoot always does the job. An intimate and sensual photoshoot which aesthetically captures you in a romantic and sometimes erotic way! To get the perfect photograph, everything is important, from lighting and setup to the posture and outfits. Mostly, women prefer to wear lingerie to give a more intimate touch to their photo shoot. Choosing the picture-perfect lingerie can be quite a task and that is where this guide will come handy.
Embrace your body
First and foremost, love yourself the way you are. No matter what size you are, accept it and flaunt in full confidence. If you got curves, then show them off instead of hiding them. Trust me, when you start embracing your body and drop your reservations, you will look a hundred times more gorgeous than you already are.
Determine your body type
In order to select THE perfect lingerie that will actually make you look like a Victoria’s Secret model, knowing your body shape is critical. Unless you can measure yourself just with your eyes, get your hands on an inch tape and note down the measurements of your shoulders, busts, waist, and hips. The four basic body types are:
- Apple: If your middle part is fuller as compared to the rest of your body with slim legs, then you’re an Apple.
- Pear: Pear-shaped beauties tend to have a fuller bottom than their rest of the body
- Hourglass: If the shoulders and hips are almost of similar size with a smaller waist, then you fall in this category.
- Rectangular: Women in this category have almost same dimensions from top to bottom, therefore having a straight line figure.
Invest in Some Bold and Beautiful Lingerie Pieces
Babydolls Lingerie, corsets, camisoles, the list is very long. Now that you know your body shape, it's time to choose lingerie that will flatter you the most.
Apple shaped women should focus on drawing attention to their bust and away from the waist. Low-cut and V-shaped necklines accentuate your bust and give an elongated look to your overall body line. You can choose to wear a strapless bra and undies set or instead go for a strapless corset. This lets you flaunt your shoulders while creating some curves. If you are not comfortable in exposing too much skin, then opt for a deep V-neck bodysuit.
Pear shaped women have heavier bottoms, but that does not mean that they need to camouflage that. Rather than hiding them, flaunt them confidently with tight-fitting pants. Corsets and corset dresses will do the job of creating a seamless line from top to bottom giving you a slender appearance.
For Rectangle shaped women, waist clinchers, push up bras and chemises are ideal as they add the required curves to their silhouette. A padded push-up bra gives you a rather fuller and rounder appearance.
A well-fitted chemise or teddy is perfect for flattering an hourglass-shaped body. Vintage styles and corsets double up your grace that will make you feel and look like a diva.
Do Not Forget to Accessorize
Your hair is set, makeup is done and you have chosen the perfect lingerie. Now for that final touch to your overall look, accessorize. You don’t need to be a walking glitter bomb. Keep it simple and elegant. It could be sexy knee high boots, a pearl necklace, studs, a hat, or anything you find interesting.
