What is a Boudoir Shoot?

boudoir shoot plus size

If you love everything mentioned above and want to shoot your shot at a boudoir shoot, but you still don’t quite understand what it is, no problem. We’ll break down this empowering experience that requires you to strip down. 

“Boudoir” is a French word coined in the late 1700s that refers to a women’s private bedroom or sitting room. Emphasis on “private” here, boudoir photos are all about showing the camera what you commonly wouldn’t show other people.

That doesn’t mean they have to be scandalous, though. In fact, the key to boudoir photo shoots is that nudity is more implied than explicit—with soft, classy, but also sexy photos.

Boudoir photography has a romantic, sensual, and voyeuristic edge.

What you choose to wear for a boudoir photo shoot should make you feel confident and beautiful, whether it’s a cupless corset or a feminine lace teddy

3 Tips for a Super Sexy Plus Size Boudoir Shoot

By using the tips below, you’ll ensure that you feel and look your sexiest for your boudoir shoot.


1. Keep it simple—and tight

When in doubt, pick solid colors for boudoir photo shoots. The focus should be on your body, not the floral pattern covering it. If you use a really plain background, you may be able to get away with patterned fabric.  

Although babydolls balance elegance and sex appeal and might feel like a great choice, they are not the best option for boudoir photos. They add extra fabric and an unshapely silhouette that will take away from your body’s curves. 

Bodysuits and teddies are the best for boudoir photo shoots because they show off your figure while leaving the camera wanting more.

2. Use your partner's clothes

If you’re giving your boudoir photos to your partner as a gift, add a sexy little addition to them: clothing and accessories from your partner’s closet.

Wear your partner’s favorite hat, uniform, shirt, or whatever else. 

Not only will this little touch be super hot, but it will also personalize the photos so they know they are only for them. This personal touch is an extremely sexy and playful way to show your partner they're always on your mind.


3. Remember the little things

You’ve got an incredible photographer, gorgeous lingerie, and the perfect backdrop. What else could you need? 

Hair, make-up, and accessories, of course! 

When it comes to photographs, more is always better. Make-up looks and hairstyles that may seem a bit too intense in a mirror can be captured beautifully on camera.

Put on that bold lipstick color you’ve been dying to try out. Add a seductive and strong smoky eye. Give extra volume to your hair.  And don't forget to apply moisturizer and lotion to your entire body the night before for extra fresh skin!
