My Boudoir Babes,
Congratulations – I love how you are taking the step to self empowerment and creating totally bad-ass art (Boudoir!).
When starting this journey as a boudoir photographer – I knew I wanted to educate my clients on the importance of lingerie (from how it fits, photographs and makes you physically & emotionally feel). That’s why i’ve invested time and finances into building an amazing and elevated client wardrobe. Some of my favorite brands are listed below!
** Important **
Getting a bra fitting from a professional will save you not only time, comfort levels, etc. but is really important to how your lingerie will fit and photograph. On a day to day, it also influences your posture, clothing fit, etc. Investing in your undergarments is so important. Going into lingerie stores to be properly fitted is A++ practices when prepping.
What I love about these companies and their #boudoir_fashion :
Styles and Brands to consider when purchasing your Boudoir Lingerie for your next photography shoot:
– Huit 8 : https://huit.com
Really traditional lines with beautiful details. Colors are neutral and yet have a playful and sexy. The collection is perfect for every day and yet sexy enough for boudoir.
Tatu Couture : https://www.tatucouture.com
Britain based company, screams luxe, art and beauty. Pricy and struggles for inclusive size, but worth it for straight sized clients.
– Oh La La Cheri : https://ohlalacheri.com
The sizing is straight size through QU (queen). The colors and style are wonderful, along with the quality. I have several items from this brand in my personal collection.
Fleur du Mal : https://fleurdumal.com
One of the most amazing brands for Parisian Intimates. I am in love with the structure and how the sets are delicate and movie star quality. Most of my boudoir styled shoots feature sets from this company. Woman owned, style and totally hot hot hot. Larger cup sizes available but size is primarily straight/traditional sizing.
– Dream Girl : https://www.dreamgirlofficial.com
This site is affordable and has classic and risqué lines. I have a few items that have been a staple piece in my collection. They have extended sizes and fit the curvy body.
– Thistle and Spire : https://www.thistleandspire.com
Offers sizing up to 3x. Edgy, fun and one of my favorites due to the fabulous details, quality and affordability. I am involve with the different themes they bring into their collection. Female owned and Brooklyn, NY. I love their women empowerment focus and their small creative team.
– Blue Bella : https://www.bluebella.us
Really cool lines, material (delicate chain and metal details) and color. I love the leather and bondage styled lines that the brand creates. 100% will be featured in an upcoming branding shoot my boudoir team will be hosting.
– Torrid : https://www.torrid.com
Plus size (10-26) allows for affordable and yet quality plus sized clothing and accessories. This clothing brand has some elevated options and fits. From every day underwear and garments to lingerie, you can find this clothing chain in most malls. I love their every day underwear sets and jeans.
-Kilo Brava : https://kilobrava.com/
A brand that not only gives amazing prints, fabrics and structure, Kilo Brava is a female owned lingerie and intimates company. I am obsessed with their luxe body suites and extended sizing. I love winter of 2023/ Spring 2024’s inspiration from this line “90’s inspo”. I have loved working with the company’s pieces in 2023.
I hope you enjoy these brands, the insight and the passion I have for boudoir. It has brought amazing and beautiful people into my life.
