Have you booked your boudoir session and now don’t know what to buy or where to start? Not to worry! My top 10 places to buy lingerie for your boudoir session will have you looking and feeling fearless in no time!
As a boudoir photographer, I am constantly surrounded by women who want to feel and look like bombshells. Working with every budget, body type, and style, I have been able to use my experience and expertise for the best recommendations on lingerie that will flatter EVERY-body type.
With so many options out there, learning where to shop can get very overwhelming. Not every place will have your style or consider your comfort level, but having a starting place will help you with your shopping experience and maybe even make it a fun enjoyable experience.
I LOVE Honey Birdette! It’s a personal favorite of mine and really is the epitome of luxury. With everything from robes and bodysuits to lingerie separates, and with a range of fittings available in sizes up to 40F and XXL.

Agent Provocateur is easily one of the most iconic lingerie labels in the world. They have a real feminine look to their lingerie with the most intricate details.

A uniquely modern take on lingerie. They have everything from your strappy favorites, chain intricates and harnesses, to the most beautiful floral designs. Sizes available up to a 40G and 16, so not the widest range compared to some others but some fearlessly sexy pieces if they cater for your size.

A London lingerie brand. Playful Promises mixes quirky, sexy lingerie sets with all things playful, flirty, and a bit dirty. Their lingerie is absolutely stunning and one of my favorite shops. With pricing being affordable for the great quality and having sizes for fuller figures, you can’t go wrong with this store.

Torrid is known for its great quality lingerie at a great price point. This is a place for our curvy girls. They have so many great choices and are the #1 place to find some great heels in larger sizes.

Love Honey is specifically an adult shop (like our own local Castle) but it still has some great choices for your lingerie needs and as you can imagine has every style of lingerie you can dream of.

Thistle and Spire
Another one of my favorites. Thistle and Spire was female-founded in Brooklyn in 2015, it was created to give a beautiful boost to anyone who needs a lift, literally and figuratively. Fed up with the same old stale styles and beauty standards, they are inspired to do things daringly different and to give you that extra edge to put power into every moment.

Savage X Fenty
Rihanna’s very own line of lingerie. She looked at what women need, want, and what fits great for all body types and ranges from your everyday essentials to the more provocative ones.

AdoreME is one of the top-known places to shop. They have great quality and the price is not to bad either. You can sign up for a monthly subscription (which in turn gives you a discounted price on items) or purchase outright. They have everything from chic bra and panty sets, corsets designed with a focus on a great fit, and even affordable and increasingly sustainable styles in their size.
