What to wear to a Boudoir session

November 23, 2015

If its your first time doing a boudoir session with a photographer, I’m sure the number one question in your mind is: “What am I going to wear?!” Fear not, here at Boudoir by Olin we have some great suggestions on what to wear to a boudoir session! We offer ideas and inspiration from a photographers standpoint on what types of wardrobe selections have worked the best for us from years of experience in photographing studio boudoir sessions.

 Not too long ago we met up with the lovely Jazmine for a boudoir session in Sacramento. We thought she was such a great example of a woman who really embraced versatility in her style during her boudoir session, and so we thought we could share examples of some great outfits!

During our boudoir session she had a few different looks that she loved, but we still kept it simple and we had so much fun with it! Hope you take a peak through our boudoir photographs with Jazmine and get inspired for some wardrobe ideas for your studio boudoir session!

Bra and Panties. For your boudoir session, bra and panties are always a good choice! Besides, sometimes its nice to have a little push up! You can match your sets, or if you want to have fun with it you can even mix and match!

Casual wear. If you are really worried about what to wear boudoir session, sometimes the sexiest thing is  sticking to basics. You can’t beat a plain white tee, or an over sized sweater over your bra and panty.

Also during a boudoir session, it can be fun to mix it up a little bit from the ordinary. A fun and sexy twist could be to bring your beau’s jersey, favorite tee, or button up for your boudoir session.

Lingerie. If you want that sultry look, lingerie is always fun to bring! From garter slips, to babydoll slips, to long stockings all are sexy choices! It’s fun to dress up and it most certainly fun being a woman!


Whether the boudoir session is on location or in a studio, the most important thing to remember is to just be you, that is the sexiest thing you can be.

    • I’m hoping to do a boudoir lingerie or swim suit session either one would be fine with me to do but it’s up to you what’s more comfortable for the photographer to do let me know when you wanna do a boudoir session like any time is good for me.

    I came across your website and I was enamored by the stunning and lovely photographs you’ve taken. I am wondering if you could do Boudier photographs for me The only problem I see here is that I’m a man. However, I am a big fan of lingerie and have a bit of a fetish for how beautiful they are. Please let me know if you would be open to doing a Boudier shoot for me. If not , I completely understand. I don’t intend to make you uncomfortable at any stage of the interaction.
