This may be one of the most stressful parts of your upcoming session. It's like bathing suit shopping...on steroids. The only thing worse than jean shopping is bathing suit shopping, and sometimes this is no different. I know it's hard to go outside of your comfort zone. You are probably looking for the most conservative, (translate to: most covered) swatch of fabric you can find. Don't! Stop right there! Close the drawer on babydolls and flowing robes. Believe it or not, your figure gets lost under these, and they can make you look bigger, and more boxy than you are.
To avoid this, we have a few suggestions! We always recommend at least one bra/panty combo. They don't have to match perfectly, but they should be the same in color. This keeps the focus on you, and less on the different colors or patterns you might be sporting.
My best lingerie advice for you is to find a bodysuit! They are so complimentary to all body types. Seriously! High cut legs thighs will elongate your legs, and deep-v cut will always make the girls look fab. Bodysuits are also awesome for hiding your belly if you're self-conscious, while still showing off the fierce babe you are.
Another staple is a nude or black thong. It's easy to have a poppin' booty in a thong. Not a thong girl? (Me either...) Another hot option is a panty with a ruched bottom (think seam right up the booty crack...). Comfy? Probably not. But, worth it.
The most important part of this process is to find a piece you feel beautiful in. Something that when you look at yourself, you think, "Damn. I'm going to kill this session." Try to avoid things you know you won't be comfortable in, or things that don't fit so well.
Still struggling? Bring a few staple pieces you love and "shop" our client closet. It's filled with pieces sized xs-3x that we know photograph well. Everything is laundered and clean for your visit.
How extra are you? Feel underdressed without a bit of bling or hot shoes? Add some fishnets (large hole fishnets are H.O.T.!) thigh highs with garter belts, or a great pair of shoes to your ensemble for that little something extra.
At the end of the day, the only thing I want you to leave knowing is that you are perfect just like you are today. Not after you lose more weight, grow your hair, or if you're in a relationship with someone. Capturing your body, just as it is today, and being able to appreciate everything your body has done for you, and continues to do for you is so important. You are amazing, and beautiful, and you don't need to be someone else, or live up to anyone else's standards to be worthy. You are worthy. Just as you are.
