What To Wear When You’re A Busty Babe

If you’re part of team curvalicious, this one’s for you.

In the boudoir business I see every body shape and size. And when it comes to curves, there’s a whole world of possibilities that can make you look fabulous during your photoshoot. No matter your size, highlighting your sexy shape is going your biggest asset; the trick is knowing how. Here are some of my wardrobe tips for making magic happen.

Shapewear


Shapewear is going to be your best friend when it comes to boudoir. Choose carefully, though. Not all shapewear is designed with you in mind, so try to stay away from thongs when you’re choosing your outfits. Something I strongly suggest is to invest in some Spanx. Yep, those Spanx. Not only are these a flattering addition to any women’s wardrobe, but they can actually be worn under your lingerie to shape and smooth your curves. Can’t choose which bodysuit to go with? Try this surefire choice or this beauty.

Corsets

The best part of curves? Corsets. Corsets, of course, are one of the better known boudoir styles, but the key here is to get the perfect size. As a general rule you’ll want to measure your natural waist and then select a corset that’s 7-10 inches smaller. Corsets are a great way to boost the girls, just make sure you’re lacing into the right size for the best look!

Garter Belt

My advice for garter belts would be to grab a thicker belt like this to get the most flattering outline. Skinny garter belts are not flattering. End of story. P.s. You can sneak a pair of Spanx under these as well!

 

Bodysuits

Bodysuits are great because they let you express your sensuality without worrying about those little areas you’re self-conscious about. When you’re looking for the perfect bodysuit play around with different textures and colors to see what’s the most flattering. While black will be a forever classic, you might just find that bright red perfectly matches your playful personality.

 

Mid to high rise underwear or two piece sets

Let’s talk two-pieces! These can be a little more tricky for curvy girls, but if you’re set on grabbing some pics in them there are definitely options. My first suggestion would be for you to try a garter belt (with or without stockings) or to go for a retro look with some high-rise undies and a gorgeous bra. My personal favorite to suggest is this glamorous set from Playful Promises. Not only is the bra amazing, but the website is pretty much my favorite one out there. Note: Since they’re are a UK brand, their sizes tend to run a little bit small.

 

Extra Credit
For a fun, flirty and feminine option you can also try out a satin slip option like this one from Fig Leaves! Not only does it give definition to your shape, just it has a swoon-worthy dash of feminine charm.

Whichever outfit or style you choose remember that it’s a confidence that shines through the brightest during the shoot. When you’re comfortable, and what you’re wearing is a representation of you, it gives you that much more sass and power. Still not sure which option is for you?
