I have a couple go-to's for lingerie. Whether it's to stock up my client closet, or I want to surprise hubby I have a couple go-to's. So... this will be a couple different posts since there are a few places.
Fave shops for all-things lingerie Clothes can be frustrating to shop for - especially when it comes to a sensual boudoir session. But, there is something out there for you. I promise!
One thing I suggest: Finding a lingerie boutique with real one-on-one help. The people working are experienced with different body types and know what might suit your needs. Don't be afraid to ask a worker, friend, or even your boudoir photographer for help when trying to find the perfect outfit. When you shop at a boutique or storefront dedicated to lingerie, they will help size and measure you.
Finding a "real" lingerie shop is actually harder then you would think. But luckily I have done the hard work for you. One of my favorite Lingerie shops to shop at is Underneath it all located in Camp Hill, PA. This quaint little shop is AMAZING. From lingerie to corsets and more, this shop has it all. Their prices are about the same as Victoria's Secret, however, I cannot say more about the quality of their products and how well they hold up in comparison to VS. The best part... they offering fitting appointments where they will happily fit you for bra and lingerie!
So, now that we have a lingerie shop in mind. Let's figure out what look you want to go for: Dramatic, sexy, classy, pinup, bridal, or completely unclothed. Figuring out your boudoir wardrobe can be exciting! Choose your favorite colors and try on plenty of various types of lingerie. Quick tips: I recommend bringing at least one bra and panty set to your shoot.
Anything with an underwire or extra shaping; like a pushup bra or corset. Try on different textured outfits. This could be satin, lace, mesh, net, beading, etc. Don't be afraid to try out bodysuits, corsets, thigh highs, stockings, knee-high socks, teddys, high-wasted underwear, and slips. You'd be surprised to see what flatters you the most! Plus you'll have a blast during your fitting and find what flatters your figure the most.
Normally Underneath it all books their fittings 2 weeks out, so be sure to give them a call and schedule with them a minimum of 2 weeks before your session.
