What to Wear for Your Boudoir Session

September 26, 2022 Boudoir

So you finally got around to scheduling a boudoir session for yourself, congratulations! It truly is one of the most empowering and fun experiences you can give yourself - and Wildbloom Photo Studio is one of the most beloved studios in the Metro Detroit area. I promise, you’re in good company. Now that you’re on the schedule, the question at the forefront of your mind could very well be: What do I actually wear to a boudoir session? 

The short and simple answer for some, is close to nothing! However stripped-down and nude you want to get, that’s completely up to you. I can promise you, I’ve seen it all. You can decide to start your boudoir session in something that fully covers you up, like a cozy sweater, and end up topless by the end. It’s completely up to you! What’s most important is that you feel comfortable and confident in what you decide to wear, or what you don’t.

Our Metro Detroit studio has truly seen every possible outfit out there, and I encourage you to get creative with what a “sexy” or powerful outfit looks like to you. Past boudoir clients have donned their favorite pair of jeans, a partner’s t-shirt, favorite sports team jersey, or a classic lingerie set (just to name a few ideas). One thing that can help spark inspiration is asking yourself, what’s the purpose of this boudoir session? 

Did you schedule it as a gift to your partner, so they can keep spicy prints of you in their wallet? 

Or maybe you scheduled this boudoir session for no one else besides yourself! Which is empowering and sexy as hell. We aim to practice liberating self-love at Wildbloom, and hyping yourself up with stripped down photos is highly encouraged. 

Once you determine what motivated you to schedule this boudoir session, that can often inspire ideas for what to wear! Let’s say it’s the gift giving season, and you’re planning to give some photos to your partner. You might want to consider wearing a clothing item or accessory of theirs in some of the photos. Nothing says “I’m thinking of you” like a little personal item snuck into a nude photo! Or, you might be taking these boudoir photos for you and only you. In that case, you might want to wear items that feel authentic and comfortable. A favorite pair of underwear, a bra that you feel extra hot in, or a special piece of lingerie that you’ve been waiting to showcase. The ideas are truly limitless!

Still need help? We got you! We'll discuss your session in detail and review outfit options in your pre-session prep meeting.
