Love boudoir but hate lingerie? We’ve got you, girl. Here are 10 boudoir outfits that aren’t lingerie.
Have you always been curious about boudoir … but lingerie just isn’t your thing?
We totally get it.
In fact, we have a secret to share: It’s not really the lingerie that makes you sexy anyway.
Here are 10 different looks you can bring to a boudoir shoot that have nothing to do with lingerie – but still bring the fire.
10 Boudoir Outfits That Aren’t Lingerie
1. Leather Jacket
Do you have a rebel vibe? Or maybe you want to embrace your inner badass. A black leather jacket is a fun way to add some edginess to your session. Plus you can dress it up. Add a fire-engine red bra underneath … or nothing at all.
2. White T-shirt & Jeans
Looking for a simple, girl-next-door vibe instead? Try the classic white T-shirt and jeans. There’s nothing sexier than capturing you exactly as you are. You can even start to peel back the layers to show a hint of some sexy lingerie underneath.
3. Your Favorite Dress
Ready to let out your inner glam girl? We all have that one dress that makes us feel ultra sexy, no matter what. Grab it from your closet and bring it to your boudoir session! We can have lots of fun creating the illusion that it’s about to come off.
Sometimes we are at our sexiest, not when we’re showing a lot of skin, but when we are about to. That’s one of the reasons why a beautiful robe or lace cover-up can be so alluring. It reminds you of what’s underneath.
When we show our partners that we care about the things they care about, it creates the kind of trust and intimacy that’s sexier than any piece of lingerie. That’s why one of the sexiest outfits a woman can choose for boudoir is her lover’s favorite sports jersey. Is your honey not into sports? Try something else he loves, such as a concert tee or university jacket.
One of the things we love about a sweater in a boudoir shoot is it allows you to be the focus. There’s no straps and lace to distract from your beauty. It’s just you in your most comfortable, grounded state. Plus, it’s the way your partner sees you every day. What’s sexier than capturing that?
7. Bathing Suit
Are you a California girl through and through? If nothing makes you feel more at home than sinking your toes into the sand, then get glammed up and put on your favorite bathing suit. The combination of red-carpet hair and makeup, paired with a swimsuit, creates a boudoir look that’s as cool as a beach walk at sunset.
8. Their Shirt
If you’re sharing your images with a partner, then we really want to capture the same beauty they see in you every day. There’s something sweet and sexy about wearing their clothes around the house as you make breakfast or watch TV on a Saturday morning. Bring that kind of connection and love into your shoot by wearing an item of your partner’s clothing.
9. Athletic Gear
Wearing your partner’s favorite sports jersey is a great way to bring them into your shoot, but what about your interests? If working out, running or sports are part of who you are, then they are also part of what makes you sexy. Personalize your shoot by bringing your favorite athletic gear. After all, it is designed to show off your physique.
10. Wedding Dress/Accessories
Whether you’re shooting boudoir as a wedding present – or you want to remind your partner of the day you were their bride – your wedding dress and accessories make for a beautiful boudoir session. It adds an element of deep love and commitment to what’s already a steamy photo shoot. What’s more beautiful than that?

About Lindsay’s Photography for Women
With the mind of a businesswoman and the heart of an adventurer, Lindsay began to conceive of a different kind of Santa Clarita photography business. In her vision, stepping in front of the camera could be an empowering experience that gave her clients more than just a photograph — it would give people a new way of seeing themselves. With an eye for seeing the beauty in life and in others, Lindsay could use the camera to spread beauty.
