What To Bring To A Boudoir Photo Shoot
Boudoir photo shoots are one of our favorite topics. Where else can you get super glam and wear your most decadent lingerie? You know, the kind that you’re reserving for a “special occasion” (though we’d argue that any day is a good day for fancy lingerie).
So whether you’re contemplating a future boudoir photo shoot or planning for one that is happening soon, here’s everything you’ll need to wear and bring (plus a few extras!)
You don’t want anything that will leave a mark or impression on your skin.
Just in case you can’t find parking near the studio
Skip makeup if you’re doing your makeup yourself or your makeup artist is meeting you at the studio
So you don’t have any marks on your clothing that the photographer will have to re-touch

Pack everything you’re planning on wearing
Pack it all night before so you’re not rushed the morning of the photo shoot
Make-up, accessories, jewelry
This is the time to be extra glam!
Your bridal veil and wedding jewelry for a wedding boudoir photo shoot, your partner’s team jersey, baby accessories or props if you’re doing a pregnancy boudoir photo shoot
A favorite pair of heels
The extra height is especially flattering for your legs and butt!
To keep you warm in between shots
A pre-made playlist
To keep you relaxed and motivated throughout the photo shoot
A trusted friend
To help you feel more comfortable and to help with unpacking, steaming, and styling. Don’t worry, you can return the favor when she has a boudoir photo shoot!

Always important to travel with
Cash or quarters for parking
The photo studio may not have free parking
The final payment for your photoshoot
This one is self-explanatory!
They’ll add character to your photos
We suggest making a board on Pinterest or saving a bunch of photos with poses that you like so you can flip through them for inspiration between shots.

Backup outfits, stockings, and tights
Things happen – stockings rips, clothes get stained with foundation or lipstick. It’s always best to bring more clothes than you think you’ll need.
To take out any wrinkles or creases in your lingerie (you’d be surprised how wrinkled panties and babydolls can get!)
Water and a snack
So you’re not hungry during the photo shoot!
A comfortable change of clothes
To wear after!
Feeling more prepared for your boudoir photo shoot? Great! Boudoir photo shoots are a celebration of your beautiful self. They’re snapshots of a moment in your life that you’ll cherish and remember forever. We hope you have an amazing time at your photo shoot!

Whether you’re shopping for new everyday bras or lingerie for your boudoir photo shoot, it’s always a good idea to seek out a second opinion. We know how hard it is to find bras that fit well and feel good, especially when you’re doing it on your own. If you’ve ever felt unsure about your bra size or you just don’t know where to go to find good bras, it’s time to let a bra fitter help.
Many specialty lingerie boutiques offer bra fittings. Their expert bra fitters will take the pain and frustration out of bra shopping and do all the work for you. Even better, their product knowledge can save you time and money. Plus, they know where all of the best bras are hiding.
If you’ve struggled with finding bras in the right size, it’s time to make a change. Visit our specialty store locator to find a store near you and schedule an appointment.
Happy bra shopping!
