What to Wear for your Boudoir Session– Tummy Time

What am I going  to wear? You finally got the nerve and scheduled your boudoir photography session with mellBella, and now, you don’t know what to wear. Don’t worry! We’ll help you find a great outfit or two or more for you to wear. Many women don’t like their stomachs.  So, let’s talk tummy time. What is going to look best on your body and won’t emphasize the tummy area?bridal boudoir photography charleston

Here is our TOP TEN list for what to wear to look Tummy-Tastic at your boudoir session:

  1. Corset– Although hard to put on, it looks amazing. It emphasizes your waist and breasts. Be sure to check the length of the corset. Some are too short and then the tummy hangs out the bottom. But you can always add a …
  2. Garter Belt–  It’s a great option to add to a corset that might be a little short or to a bra and panty set. The garter belt typically sits just below the belly button, and then you can attach the stockings to it. Be sure to get the stockings that DON’T have the elastic top.
  3. Tutu or Skirt– Who doesn’t love the flirty attitude of a tutu? They come in a variety of fun colors, shapes, and lengths.
  4. High Waisted Panty– It’s not your grandma’s panties anymore! It’s now retro and super cute, especially with the high waist front and the cheeky back to show off your assets.
  5. Babydoll– Most have a bra top to give you support and then a flowy dress bottom. Go bold with color!
  6. Bodysuit or Shapewear– It will give you all over support. You will want to avoid the nude color. Go for basic black or a pop of color.
  7. Lace Dress– Just pair that coordinating bra and panty set with a lace dress or overlay. If the lace dress comes with a g-string panty, throw the g-string out!
  8. Sheer robe– A robe can be a flirty addition to your sexy bra and panty set. You can use it to reveal or conceal different body parts. Show a little leg or little shoulder, etc.
  9. Tank Top– Wear with or without a bra and add a pair of those cheeky or ruffle panties. You can even wear one with his and/or you fav super hero on it.
  10.  Shorts or Pants– Think linen or semi sheer to give just a hint of your body.

Now, where can you find this lingerie? We created a whole Pinterest Board just for you with 100 pins of these tummy- tastic options.

 

Where to shop? We found a ton of items at Lane Bryant, Victoria Secret, Frederick’s of Hollywood, Bits of Lace, Amazon, Target, JC Penney, Yandy.com, and AdoreMe.com. All places that our Bellas have shopped and recommended.

Check out our Tummy Time Pinterest Board

 

So now, when you come for your mellBella boudoir session, you can bring a whole suitcase of options. We’ll help you narrow it down to the very best options for you to look and feel like the beauty that you are.

One Image Wednesday – Man’s Shirt

This One Image Wednesday, we talking about the man’s shirt as a prop. Every man has that favorite shirt, the shirt that matches his eyes perfectly, or that special shirt you got him. So, why not wear it as part of your boudoir photography session? Be sure to pair it with a pop of color bra and panty set or just forgo the bra entirely. We know the shirts are not made for women. But we have some clips we use, so you still have your curves and not disappear entirely under the shirt. The only problem is… how to sneak it out without him knowing? Just tell him it’s dirty. 😉

One Image Wednesday – Fake Eyelashes

It’s time for One Image Wednesday again at mellBella. Let’s talk fake eye lashes. They are a great way to emphasize your eyes and complete your look. Make sure to bring a pair with you for your session, or you can purchase a set from our stylist. Fake eyelashes take your look from Va- Va to Vava Voom! You can choose from a natural look or go bigger and bolder. We like the Ardell brand that you can pick up at any store like Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc.  Bring on the luscious lashes!13

One Image Wednesday – Smile

This One Image Wednesday, we would like to remind you to smile. Many ladies worry about making the “sexy face” for their mellBella boudoir photo session. You know what IS sexy? You! We want to photograph a variety of expressions to celebrate you. So rock the nose crinkle, smile, and laugh. You’ll love the photos because you not only had fun, but you actually look like you had fun too. We know you’ll be nervous, but Wanda and Mell Bell are great at telling jokes or being silly to keep you smiling.  Smiling is sexy.

One Image Wednesday – Accessorize

When thinking about what to wear for your boudoir session, accessories are a great way to change up your look from the typical bra and panty sets. This Bella rocked our rhinestone mask with our black tulle skirt. Both are available in our mellBella Closet for you to use during your session with us. She brought this fabulous lace top and black peep toes to complete her look. We decided against a necklace for this look because we really wanted the mask to stand alone. Bring your fav accessory with you, and let’s create something amazing.
