I am seriously thinking about doing a Boidoir photoshoot and giving a photobook to FI on our wedding day but I’m not so sure I feel comfortable since I had a child and having someone see the affects of that. I’ve been working out trying to get in shape but I still feel I haven’t made much progress.
My question for those bees who have done it, what would y’all recommend to help cover up but still be super sexy?

Havn’t done it yet but am in August, i’ll be using a white sheet to cover up but still be sexy.

I agree with the above poster… a white sheet is very sexy. I will also be wearing a very sexy bra and one of his white dress shirts (to cover my tummy). Make sure you have a GOOD photographer who knows about posing and lighting. Girl with expensive camera does NOT equal a real photographer. Good luck!

I’m going to do one also. My little stretch mark maker is four! My FI is a firefighter so I’m going to use his bummer panor a jacket as a bit of cover in the mid area!

I’m sure he loves you curves and all the “imperfections”… My FI always says thats what makes me sexy, that he can tell it’s me without having to see my face. I’m sure your men are the same, so do what you want!
LOVE YOUR BODY no matter what!!

I wore a pretty red bra and underwear set an I wore a black satin kimono robe over it, and all of my poses were with the robe so it was constantly covering below my bra.

I haven’t had a child but I am definitely not in shape (no obese/plus sized, but not like a VS model either). I just did the standard bra + panty sets and let the photographer pose me to avoid the saggy/jiggly parts. She provides the different settings and some had a curtain she had me pose with. I would pick a photographer that has a portfolio with women of all sizes and shapes so you know she’s good at working with people of all sizes. As far as a cover up goes, I would do a sheer lacey robe or a men’s dress shirt (not for hte whole shoot, of course).

Oh do it! a good photographer will highlight your lovely areas and know how to camouflage what you are nervous about.
here is my ‘secret’ pinterest board, I have been collecting poses and props that will work with my body. I want to get a shoot someday, maybe to give him on the wedding day, or maybe just for fun 🙂 http://pinterest.com/mariebasalt/boudoir/ It is secret because everyone I know is on pinterest now lol so it is a fake name.
Something that got me comfortable with the idea was watching burlesque videos on Utube. There are So many gorgeous women in so many sizes and shapes just hooting it up and having a great time on stage. Same with the collecting boudoir shots on pinterest, the more I saw it the more comfortable I felt – like – Yea…I can do that!
