Do you have this question about boudoir?

Hi there!
I talk to women on the phone every day who are thinking about booking a boudoir shoot.  One of the most common questions I get is this: "I don't know how to pose or what to do with my face - will you help me?" And the answer is YES!  We shoot boudoir full-time here at the Bedhead studio and we have helped hundreds of women feel sexy and empowered.  We will show you how to pose!  And what to do with your face!  As the photographer, I will be will you every step of the way, showing you how to adjust your hips or shoulders for just the right angle.  I will be fluffing your hair and demonstrating how to lie on the bed so that we get fabulous, stunning photos of YOU!  We use posing, lighting and a little photoshop to transform everyday women into bombshell divas every day!  We are here for you!

Bedhead Boudoir's Guide: Where to Shop for Lingerie!

Great lingerie is essential to feeling sexy and having a great shoot at the Bedhead Studio!  

Here's what we recommend:

Best in-store shopping in the Chicago area:

Journelle  /  La Perla   /  Nordstrom  /  Victoria's Secret

On a budget:

Adore Me   /  Yandy   /  H&M  /  Frederick’s of Hollywood / Torrid

Especially for brides:

Claire Pettibone  /  BHLDN Bridal

Some other fun options:

ASOS  /  L’Agent (by Agent Provacatuer / Anya Lust  / Oh la la Cheri  / Anthropologie

Awesome lingerie sites that include plus-sizes:

Harlow & Fox  / Hips & Curves / Burgundy Fox


When choosing lingerie for your shoot, keep the following in mind:

  • Structured lingerie items with a bit of lift, boning and/or wiring will give you a better shape in your photos than a loose slip.
  • Jewel tones such as purple, navy, red, turquoise and crimson look good on almost everyone!
  • You don’t have to bare everything. For example, a lace-up corset or a slip with a built-in bra gives your bust-line a great lift while covering your middle. Thigh-high stockings are also great for smoothing out the look of your legs.
  • Bring items that fit and that YOU love! If you feel uncomfortable, it will show in your photos.  Bring things that make you feel confident and sexy!

Some of our lingerie recommendations include:

  1. A black push-up bra with a matching panty
  2. Jewel-toned bra & panty sets with a bit of lace or texture
  3. A corset with a thong, garter belt and thigh-high stockings
  4. Lace body suits
  5. A stretchy thong if you want a picture like this one!
