FAQ: The Boudoir Photoshoot Wardrobe

What is a Boudoir Photoshoot and why should I care?

A boudoir photoshoot is a professional photoshoot that’s all about U in your gorgeous underthings. While these photographs are frequently gifted to a lucky significant other for weddings, anniversaries, or holidays, you absolutely do NOT need a plus one to celebrate your fabulous self! The empowering experience of these sessions has been said to be “100x more effective than therapy” for your confidence. You. Go. Girl.

But what do I wear?

Glad you asked. Here are our top three outfits to capture your sexiest self on camera.

1. One-piece Wonders: A flattering bodysuit

Bodysuits are hands-down the most flattering look for any body shape and size. These one piece wonders are great for photoshoots because they bring the focus of the image to your curves, peaches, and melons, while also giving you the ability to cover areas you do not want to emphasize. Spoil yourself with one of these lacy deep-v body suits for your special someone (or your own damn self!).

2. Covered but Cute: A button up or off-the-shoulder tee

In general, we (and most photographers) will recommend you embrace the freedom of not covering up, but sometimes you want to emphasize the booty or incorporate a sentimental piece. Grab your S.O.’s favorite button up (or your own) for a more covered look that is still super sexy and versatile. You can get distinct looks by dressing / undressing in the shirt, rolling the sleeves up, buttoning it up, or letting it loose! Whatever you choose, match these tops with a beautiful pair of underwear. Subscribe to Underclub and let our stylists help you pick your first pair for just $12.95 / month.

3. Ooh Wee, Three! Adding a garter

Garters are the thigh high boots of lingerie accessories. These small fabric additions to your lingerie help to make your legs look longer (and 10x hotter… it’s a fact). If you want to go the three piece route, we recommend buying as a set so all the lace, trim and design of the pieces match in the photos, like these sexy red or white pieces.

No matter what you choose, always remember that the confidence you bring in is ultimately what will make you look smoking hot!

10 Commandments for your underwear

There is no room in your life for settling, hoarding, or self-neglect, so why accept the unacceptable when it comes to your most intimate choices? The Underclub Team wrote these Ten Commandments of Underwear to help guide you towards greater self-confidence, and most importantly: alignment with your highest, sexiest self.

1. You shall value no other opinions higher than your own for your underwear selection

Your S.O. may love lace thongs and your sister might swear by boyshorts, but when it comes to your underwear, it’s your choice and yours alone. Hold your opinion about your underwear in the highest.

2. You shall never worship just one underwear brand

We all have our go-to brands, but spice it up a little by trying out some new ones. You’ll find a variety of gorgeous styles to grace the altar that is your underwear drawer.

3. You shall not complain in vain about underwear that doesn’t fit. You shall fix it.

Just like clothing brands, not all underwear brands use the same size models- that means a “small” in one brand may be a “medium” in another. Don’t squeeze yourself into something too small or tight because of inconsistent vanity labels (Pro Tip: European brands generally run smaller).

4. You shall not wear underwear that looks like a crime scene

It’s tempting to keep the underwear with the unfortunate period stain – just in case. Don’t do it.  We can’t guarantee new underwear will cure PMS, but ill-fitting or bad underwear can definitely make your mood worse.

5. Honor your mother and her request for clean underwear

That advice your mom gave you about always wearing clean underwear is sage. In the worst case you get hit by a bus… or find yourself at the center of an #undervention.

6. Remember laundry day, keep it holy

Never wear dirty underwear on the Sabbath…or Monday, or Tuesday, or Wednesday, or Thursday… or any day for that matter. Make sure you have enough good pairs that you won’t run out before laundry day.

7. You shall not commit commando…without knowing your other options

Going commando is freeing for some and a bacterial nightmare for others. Don’t worry, we have a solution for that: seamless underwear. You get the look of commando, without any of the worry.

8. You shall not steal glances in the locker room, hoping that no one notices your tattered underwear

There’s never a good time to wear underwear that you’re embarrassed about, not even for a sweaty workout. Do yourself a favor and commit to only wearing underwear that makes you feel like the boss you are.

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor about your new underwear habits

You’re not the only woman hoarding underwear she bought 10 years ago- you just don’t talk about it… yet. Let your girlfriends know that they deserve an underwear upgrade. There’s a club for that.

10. You shall not covet underwear ads, you shall invest in owning new pairs

Join Underclub and you can start building your own stash of covetable underwear. You’ll never have to break an underwear commandment again.

Beach, please. Your essentials for a day by the water

Summer is officially in full swing and there’s nothing like soaking up Vitamin D with a long day at the beach or the pool. While prolonged or unprotected exposure can wreak havoc on your body, getting smart on protecting yourself with these tips can go a long way. Here’s how:

1. Hydrate: The salt, wind and sun all have a way of drying you out. Hydration is essential to any beauty regimen, and it’s especially important after a day under the blazing summer sun. 

  • H2O up: We lose 1 to 2 liters of water a day just from breathing alone, and more than double that amount if you’re sweating or exercising. Drink. Lots. Of. Water.
  • Lather on that moisturizer: Pick an after-sun moisturizer with aloe, the “plant of immortality“. This miracle plant is key for cooling and hydrating your skin, especially those spots the sunscreen missed.

2. Refresh: Fun in the sun can drain your energy for later. Make sure to refuel and refresh so you’re ready for your next adventure.

  • Refresh your undergarments: Running around in a wet bathing suit isn’t only uncomfortable, the conditions down south facilitate bacterial growth that can increase your chances of getting a yeast infection or UTI. Need fresh bottoms? Use code SUMMERFUN this week only for 25% off your first month of Underclub.

3. Get ready to repeat: More summer sun in your future? Make sure you pay attention to protecting the less obvious parts of your body from the sun’s rays.

  • Love your locks: Although your hair isn’t technically a living entity, it can still get dry and brittle from the sun. Protect your head with a hat and follow up with recovery serum like Alterna Haircare’s Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Recovery Spray to help condition, detangle and help to restore your hair’s shine.
  • Toss the lipgloss: Unlike your skin, your lips don’t have melanin, the pigment that makes you tan when exposed to sun. Because your lips can’t protect themselves from the sun, toss shiny lip gloss and opt for matte lip balms with SPF.
