The Best Lingerie for a Boudoir Shoot

The Best Lingerie for a Boudoir Shoot

Previously we mentioned how a boudoir shoot is a great way to be more confident in lingerie as it is a different way to view oneself. In case you’ve been inspired by our earlier post and are wanting to get started with your own boudoir shoot, we have compiled our top selections of lingerie for a boudoir shoot that will keep you comfortable and confident while the camera clicks away. Keep reading to see our top recommendations of beautiful silk and lace creations to help you feel your best during your boudoir shoot.



Bust Support Chemises

Bust support is your best friend when it comes to showing off your assets while still providing enough support to keep you confident. Our collections offer three levels of bust support to suit your needs and comfort. All of our bust support chemises are made with soft, sustainable silks that keep you cool and allow your skin to breathe. We offer a variety of styles and colours to choose from - each with unique lace detailing.

Bust support chemises we recommend include:
Barbara Bridal Bust-Support Silk Chemise
Alice Feminine Lounge Bust-Support Silk Chemise
Mikaella Sophisticated Silk Chemise


Babydoll chemises skim your body, creating a gorgeous silhouette without feeling constricting. Beautiful hand-cut lace details make each chemise unique so you can find the style that’s perfect for you easily. Well, it might be a little hard to choose between the styles, but no one said you couldn’t wear a few different styles for your boudoir shoot. These silk and lace creations are modest and elegant, keeping you confident beyond the sheets and in front of the camera.

Babydolls we recommend include:
Barbara Bridal Babydoll Silk Chemise
Viva Sensual Babydoll Silk Chemise
Agatha Nostalgia Swing Silk Babydol

Long Gowns

For an elegant and sophisticated silhouette, long gowns are ideal. A boudoir shoot in a long gown gives a classic, golden-age Hollywood vibe. Whether you’re a femme fatale or the girl next door, you’ll find a long silk gown that suits your style. You’ll experience a streamlined silhouette as well as have options for bust support, not to mention our long gowns offer incredible comfort.

Long gowns we recommend:
Viva Sensual Bust-Support Long Silk Gown
Nina Love Long Silk Slip
Mikaella Sophisticated Long Silk Gown

Camisoles and Tap Pants

Not everyone is comfortable in chemises and gowns. For the ladies that feel their best in camisoles and tap pants, we have mix and match sets just for you. With feminine lace accents and sensually soft silk, camisoles and tap pants make for a beautiful addition to any boudoir photo shoot. Our collection has a variety of fun and flirty options for you to find the set that best suits you.

Camisoles and tap pants we recommend:
Morgan Lace Spaghetti Silk Camisole
Dylan Urbane Silk Camisole
Dylan Urbane Silk Tap Pant

Robes and Kimonos

No boudoir shoot is complete without a robe or kimono. Whether you’re wrapping up before and after or adding it over another piece, a robe or kimono is a quintessential addition to your session. Long or short, our robes and kimonos extend the decadent feel of temperature-regulating silk from your lingerie to swathe your whole body in sustainable softness.

Robes and kimonos we recommend:
Alice Feminine Lounge Short Silk Kimono
Viva Sensual Short Silk Kimono
Barbara Bridal Short Silk Kimono

Find Your Boudoir Photographer

Now that you’ve chosen your lingerie, you’ll need to find a boudoir photographer to take your photos. This task can feel a bit daunting, after all the very nature of the photo shoot demands that you feel comfortable with the photographer you choose. A boudoir photography studio we love is Lux Portraiture, a local studio here in Vancouver that, like us, is owned and operated entirely by women. The Lux Ladies will ensure that you feel empowered, beautiful, and sexy the entire time you are in front of the camera and every time you see your photos afterward. Your session with Lux will include the in-studio location for the shoot, professional makeup applications, image retouching, and an in-person photo reveal of your images where you can decide which ones you want to purchase.

Together, NK IMODE and the Lux Ladies will remind you of how beautiful you truly are.
