a few quick tips

BEFORE YOU GO SHOPPING

For some women, going shopping for lingerie is fun and exciting:  You get to pick out something that makes you feel sexy and beautiful!  For others, it may be frustrating or something that you have lots of insecurities about.   But for MOST, it will be a mix of both.

Here are my biggest tips for you before you start shopping:

  • Choose lingerie that is the proper size!  If things are too tight they will pinch and be uncomfortable.  I recommend sizing up on panties so they don’t dig into your skin and are comfy.
  • When shopping in-person, get measured & fitted – trust me, it helps!
  • When shopping from home, use a sewing tape-measure to take your measurements to help with sizing.
  • High-cut panties lengthen the legs and look flattering on EVERYONE
  • High-waisted is IN again and is wonderful if you want a bit more coverage, but also incredibly flattering on basically every body type
  • Try a bodysuit!  There are a ton of styles and they photograph super well
  • You can layer!  If you find a sheer bodysuit you love, but want more coverage, layer a pretty bra underneath!
  • Don’t forget accessories like jewelry or stockings, and maybe even high heels – you don’t have to walk in them!
  • Lingerie isn’t the only thing that is sexy.  Think of off-the shoulder sweaters, a stunning cocktail dress, your partner’s button up shirt, or just a cute crop top or tank – we can do a lot with things that are simple and more everyday, and it adds a different vibe to your album too!
  • We have a few extra pieces in our client closets for you to “shop” when you arrive, including body suits, robes, thigh-high stockings, garter belts, and more. 
  • There are a TON of styles out there for lingerie.  Get something that makes you feel fabulous.  If it’s more bold, sensual, or a tiny bit kinky….go for it!  I’ve literally seen it ALL, so don’t feel shy about what you want to wear!
