Sometimes sexy is just hanging out in your closet. Here are our Top Ten Non Lingerie Items you can bring to your mellBella Boudoir Experience to create your version of sexy.

No matter what you wear or don’t wear, the most important part is that you have a great time at our Charleston Boudoir Studio. We have some ladies who get addicted and do a boudoir session every year with us. Remember, your version of beautiful isn’t defined by anyone else, but YOU. You are beautiful at every age and every stage of life.

Keep It Classy 2015 Recap

mellBella's comfy bed

 

 

March 6th & 7th filled our Charleston Boudoir Studio with some amazing women. One bride got her bridesmaids together to each do a boudoir photo shoot with us on the same day… So they all got their hair and makeup done by PaperDolls,  hung out together to encourage each other, had a fun private photo session with us, and then went out on the town looking and feeling fabulous. It was the perfect Girl’s Day!

Some of our other ladies had seen us at our Bridal Show booth, and they had finally got the nerve up to do a boudoir photo shoot with us. We were so humbled with the stories all the ladies shared with us from celebrating weight loss to celebrating a new start. Thank you for your trust. We can’t wait for you to see a glimmer of all that inner beauty you have shining through in your photos.

Also, our new Vegas Set made it’s debut… think Hot Pink and Lights! Don’t worry if you missed out on this event… we have our last spring boudoir photo event coming up Friday, April 3rd– Spring Break mellBella Style. Check out the details HERE. You know want to.

Until next time…. make it sexy!

What to Wear for Your Boudoir Shoot- Bits of Lace

That age old decision of what to wear just got more complicated as you are now looking for some specific items for your private boudoir photography session with mellBella. Luckily in Charleston, we have a great locally owned an operated fine lingerie store– Bits of Lace.

They not only carry bras, underwear, lingerie, and sleepwear. They also have a sweet bridal lingerie section for all your brides to be. Bits of Lace is known for being Bra Fit Specialists and have been in Charleston since 1976. We have quite a few options in our mellBella Closet from here, but you should definitely check them out either on King Street, Mount Pleasant, or even online. Those ladies will make sure that you have quality, exquisite lingerie that fits you perfectly.

A few of our favorite things that you can find there are:

And, don’t forget to bring some bright colors for your boudoir photo shoot. You don’t have to be stuck with a thong or granny panties. We love the texture and details of these from Marie Jo. Avoid the horrible G-strings and go for something more comfortable and feminine.

Make it sexy, Ladies!
