3 Empowering Plus Size Boudoir Photography Tips - St. Charles Boudoir Shoot

At Beauty in Boudoir, we believe that boudoir is for every body. But we also know that getting in front of the camera can be intimidating for some plus size clients. Fortunately, we have some plus size boudoir tips to help you get ready for your shoot and feel more confident stepping into the studio.

3 Empowering Plus Size Boudoir Photography Tips

Here are our suggestions for making your boudoir experience a positive and empowering one.

1. Choose Lingerie That Makes You Feel Beautiful

Choosing the right boudoir outfit is important for any shoot, but if you're already nervous about stripping down in front of the camera, it's especially important to find pieces that flatter your body and make you feel good.

When picking out what you'll wear for your boudoir shoot, first think about which parts of your body you'd most like to emphasize. Then you can look for lingerie that highlights those areas. Traci at Beauty In Boudoir has a full client closet that goes up to 3XL and she will help style you on your boudoir session.

Another option is to forego lingerie entirely and do a wrapped in sheets boudoir shoot. This is a classic set that is timeless and beautiful but also sexy.

If you're struggling to find lingerie that makes you feel sexy, this is a great way to avoid it altogether while still achieving a classic boudoir look.

2. Pamper Yourself to Prepare for Your Shoot

The best way to beat your nerves leading up to your shoot is to find ways to kick back and relax beforehand. Getting your nails done and having a laid back night in are perfect activities for preparing for your session.

3. Personalize Your Shoot With Props and Accessories

Your boudoir shoot should reflect your personality and make you feel like a larger than life version of yourself. Finding ways to add your unique touch to your shoot can help you feel empowered and excited about the experience.
