Outfits for 2019 Boudoir Sessions

Fashion is continuously changing, which means my what to wear guide for boudoir outfits needs to change, too. Thankfully with boudoir, it’s a minimal change, so you can still check out some of my previous what to wear posts.

Boudoir Outfits

There are a lot of things that are still the same from what I recommended before as far as outfits go, but there are things that have changed as well.  I’ll cover both. 🙂

Things that have stayed the same.

Cheeky underwear, thongs, and high heels are still a must in the lineup for boudoir outfits. Be sure your underwear are about one size too big to prevent those skin indentions. Your high heels need to be really high!

Body suits are still my favorite to start the session off with a bang. The biggest thing to watch is to make sure they fit well, not too tight or too loose.  You also want to be sure they are thongs or cheeky with a high leg line. We want those legs to look super long!

I still love off the shoulder baggy sweaters with thigh high socks and Calvins, but I also love the same baggy, off the shoulder sweater paired with heels and lace underwear.  Both options look super classy and beautiful.

A timeless option is borrowing your man’s button up shirt and pairing it with sexy lingerie and thigh high stockings and heels.  Maybe grab some pearls or his tie as well.

White sheets are still a big favorite of mine.  These photos are always a hit with clients!white sheets//boudoir outfits//Photo by Boudoir by Tracy Lynn//See more at boudoirbytracylynn.com

Things that have changed.

Probably my favorite thing, which isn’t really a change in the lingerie/fashion world, only in my shooting arsenal, are silk or lace robes.  I love that it gives you something to do with your hands. It also covers up areas you may not want to show, plus it looks timeless and classy.

Jewelry can be a nice touch, especially pearls.  I was always anti jewelry before, but if we pose you just right, jewelry can look super classy.  Pearls are always a timeless addition!

Soft/neutral colors are still a favorite in the studio, but I’m liking bold colors now as well.  A big thing is to stay away from really bright colors.

Anyway.

No matter what, the photos will be amazing, so don’t worry.  I have a lot of experience posing different types of clients and different types of outfits. Preparing your outfits is just a small step in the process!  For more tips, check out this post.

Boudoir Session Prep//St. Louis, MO

Boudoir session prep is a question I answer a lot in emails to clients! There isn’t a lot to do thankfully, but there are some key points to consider when prepping for your session.  Be sure to read to the bottom because I have a checklist download for you!

To tan or not to tan?

This is probably the most asked question I get. I recommend spray tans, which I know some photographers are completely against.  I happen to love that glow you get with the spray tan.  I really like the mystic tan at Palm Beach Tan, but I know other salons have mystic tan booths as well. I also LOVE Just Fakin Tans as well.  I have had several clients use her, and the spray tan is flawless, plus she contours your body as well!

One thing I will never ever recommend is tanning in the tanning bed.  I am not here to support skin cancer.

What to wear?

What to wear is probably the absolute most common boudoir session prep question I receive. I have so many what to wear options on this blog post.  It has tons of info about fitting and why or why not for certain types of outfits. If you are curvey, check out this post for tips to flatter your curves.

You will want to have 2-3 EXTRA outfits than what the allotted amount for your session.  This allows for extra if something just isn’t working or if we possibly have a little extra time.  You will also want at the minimum 2-3 bra and panty sets.  Be sure they are a size larger than you normally wear to prevent stretching of the lace and to prevent muffin tops!

Should you wax?

Don’t wax just because you are having a boudoir session.  But if you are a waxer, wax the week before to prevent bumps, redness, or rashes.

Some other things to consider for boudoir session prep.

  • Drink lots of water the week before the session.  Hydration is important for glowing skin!
  • Eat your fruits and veggies the week before.  I’m not saying go on a crazy diet.  What I mean is just watch the salty/high fat snacks to prevent bloating!
  • Moisturize the week before, and especially the day of your session for smooth, glowing skin.
  • Come with clean, dry hair and a clean face for hair and makeup, unless otherwise discussed.

Why a Boudoir Session is the Perfect Christmas Gift//STL

How is it almost autumn already? Time is flying by and before you know it, it will be Christmas. So now’s the time to start thinking about getting the perfect Christmas gift– but what to get your guy? Instead of spending hours scouring the internet for the perfect, romantic gift, consider a boudoir session. There’s still time to schedule one and I’ll tell you why a boudoir session is the perfect gift for Christmas.

Why a Boudoir Session for Christmas

It’s a gift for you and for him!

Who says pampering yourself is a bad thing? Exactly, no one! You get a day all about you full of blissful pampering with hair and makeup, mimosas, and feeling like the most beautiful woman in the world. And I think you’ve earned yourself some quality girl time– and you can get even more girl time if you book a session with a friend and make it a girls’ day out! Most importantly, once the session is over, you leave with a renewed appreciation of yourself and see yourself for the sexy, beautiful woman that you are. I love watching my clients strutting confidently and feeling empowered and gorgeous after a boudoir session.

Not only will you feel amazing, but he will also get a thoughtful gift and a well-planned surprise! Because, really, he can order that shirt online or at the mall anytime. A boudoir session is not quite as predictable as a bottle of cologne!

And if you’re looking for a gift that will outlast that bottle of cologne, look no further. Your husband will have an enduring souvenir of your beauty, captured in this very moment in time.  Imagine giving your husband a gift that he can look back on many years from now. When you are both old and gray, he will still have your thoughtful and timeless gift.

You get new clothes!

You get to go shopping for cute new clothes, and maybe even some new lingerie. And now you have the perfect opportunity to get some cute new sweaters. An oversized sweater can be sexy and perfect. And to complement your new sweater? Those adorable knit socks that you’ve been wanting, like these super cute ones from aerie. Get some more inspiration from other boudoir sessions here and then get to shopping!

And new shoes!

Let’s not forget the shoes! You finally have an excuse to buy those really sexy heels you have been eyeing. What’s a better excuse for sexy heels than a sexy boudoir session?

It’s something he probably won’t expect

Do you find yourself getting your man the same thing every year? I do too– no worries. This is something that he won’t expect and believe me, he will be pleasantly surprised and excited! Sexy surprises are the best kind of surprise.

Favorite Boudoir Outfits// STL

We all know fashion changes every season.  It is hard to stay on top of the new trends. Thankfully, I have clients and friends who help me keep up. I noticed as the year progressed, even my favorite boudoir outfits changed with the trends.

Recent Favorite Boudoir Outfits

I am going to make this an ongoing series a few times a year.   With summer coming to a close, lets talk about the last 4 months of boudoir outfits.

Calvin Klein’s

Calvin’s and an oversized tee are my favorite. Many of my girls choose this boudoir outfit and I will never argue about it.  It’s classy and understated. I can’t photograph it enough.

Thigh Highs and Tanks

Thigh highs and tanks are even better if they have cute sayings on them.  “I just want to drink coffee, save animals, and take naps.” ME TOO!!  These colors are gorgeous and go very well in my studio.

Lacy Lingerie with a Classy Robe

There is something about this combination that I love. It’s feminine, shows off your curves and your legs, and screams boudoir. Pair it with classy heals and you have a gorgeous outfit.

Snapback and Denim

I am not saying everyone should go buy a snapback and denim shirt.  If this fits your personality and style, bring it.  This turned out perfect and completely showed off Makayla’s style.

Black on Black

This black scarf strategically placed and paired with black lace panties in this light gave me all the heart eyes.  Jennifer brought this outfit at the last second, and it turned out beautifully.  Other clients who show up with similar options have been pleasantly surprised as well!

Body Suits

Body suits will forever win for me.  I hope they never ever go out of style.  Ever. They lengthen legs.  Body suits hide flaws. They can be comfortable and sexy.  You can’t lose.

Crop Tops and Underwear

I love crop tops.  Literally love them. See the photo below for reasons why.  It’s fun and flirty. It’s sexy and powerful.  You have worked hard for your abs.  Show them off!

Satin and Lace Cami Short Set

Several clients have come with satin and lace cami and short sets. I can’t show you due to my privacy policy. I didn’t think I would like it.  You can get them at Victoria’s Secret or other lingerie boutiques.  I have several sexy poses for this outfit. On top of that, I would definitely wear this at home!
