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

Here's what we recommend:

Especially for brides:

Claire Pettibone  /  BHLDN Bridal

On a budget:

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

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 or 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 at the same time. 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!
