From the equipment you can use, what (or what not) to wear, how to pose and much more, we have all the advice you need for overcoming the awkwardness of taking your own boudoir style photos so that you can become a sexy selfie pro!

Overcome the Fear & Get in the Mood

Boudoir photos make a beautiful and intimate gift for your special someone for any occasion, or even no specific occasion at all - but if it’s completely outside of your comfort zone it might be something you’re feeling hesitant to do. To help conquer your fear, think about the purpose of your intimate images. They are not all about stripping off and striking a pose, they are a great opportunity to make yourself feel good, and when you’re feeling good you radiate in confidence, which is hella attractive!

Once you are feeling confident enough to get in front of the camera, the next step is getting yourself in the mood to pose! Slip on your favourite sexy lingerie, that you know you feel raunchy but comfortable in. Let go and don’t overthink about what looks good and what doesn’t – you can go back and delete any you don’t like. It doesn’t have to be all serious, enjoy the moment and make it about loving yourself and having fun, and remember, laughing is sexy!

How to Pose in Lingerie

When it comes to learning how to pose for pictures in your lingerie, remember that not all poses are going to feel comfortable. Many poses can look natural, but often take arching your back and stretching into awkward positions to get the photogenic look. However, your posing does not need to be over-the-top, you can simply point your toes to give the impression of longer legs, or tense slightly to give a more muscle definition. Just make sure that you are happy with the way you choose to pose. Also don’t forget your facial expressions. As well as your body, your face is one of the main focus points of your sexy pics. For a seductive pose, relax your mouth and draw attention to your lips, or for a more flirtatious look, relax and why not get your partner involved to help turn your smile into laughter. It is a great way of enjoying an intimate moment together and adding a touch of spontaneity to the relationship.

Don’t Forget Your Photo Backdrop

No matter how stunning your lingerie selfies are, you risk them being overlooked if you have too much clutter going on in the background. Therefore, we think a clean backdrop is vital! Keep it tidy and go for simplistic white bedsheets or use minimal props that help set the scene but still keep you in the limelight. A boudoir photoshoot is all about YOU and embracing your body positivity, so make sure you’re the centre stage of your sexy photos.

What to Wear

What you wear in your boudoir photoshoot influences how sexy and confident you feel, which is why it is important to pick out sexy lingerie that not only makes you look your best, but also makes you feel your best.

With National Lingerie Day just around the corner, there is no better time to strip down to your perfectly fitted lingerie and celebrate your body with a sexy photo shoot. You should use your lingerie as your superpower, but you don’t have to limit yourself to just your best bra and knickers set for your sexy selfie.

Boost your raunchy look, with an elegant babydoll, seductive stockings, or if you like to cover up slightly, why not opt for a flirtatious lace robe. For more advice read our article on How to Choose Lingerie to Boost Your Confidence.
