Roughly 90% of my clients put that they hate their stomachs in my pre-session questionnaire. Not kidding. And some of you who hate your tummies don’t even have a tummy! It’s unfortunately one of the most criticized parts of our bodies by ourselves and the media. While I generally advocate loving your whole self, flaws (perceived or real) and all, I get it. You want to take sexy bra & panty photos and maybe not have your lower stomach showing. Lucky for you, there is a way to cover it up while still looking super sexy! I’m talking about high waisted lingerie. High waisted lingerie is a godsend for those of you who want to cover their stomach but still get those gorgeous bra & panty boudoir poses done. There are a ton of different kinds of high waisted lingerie, from gartered briefs to shapewear thongs and everything in between, and all are easily paired with a lace unlined bra or push up bra for a sexy boudoir look. High waisted lingerie ranges from the super inexpensive ($8 at Tobi!) to the luxe ($220 Agent Provocateur), but most are in the $15-40 range and they come in sizes xs-4x. While I’m partial to the high waisted thongs with garter straps (they really pull a look together & I love thigh highs!) it all depends on how much coverage you’re looking for, how much shaping you’re looking for and how sheer or opaque you’re comfortable with. If you only have a small belly you can get away with a more sheer, high fashion high waisted panty. If you’re looking to give yourself some curves while covering up your belly look for the shapewear thongs instead. I find most of my high waisted lingerie on Yandy, usually it comes with a pretty crappy bra but they’re cheap enough that you can find a sized cup bra that matches & keep the set under $50.

An alternative to the high waisted panty is a full coverage garter slip skirt. You still get the sexiness of skin showing but it covers a bit more of your thighs. You can also get super sexy with a harness (like this) that gives you coverage like a bodysuit but that you can pair with your own bra or no bra.

Need more ideas? I have a whole pin board of bottoms that are perfect for boudoir & most are high waisted 🙂 & another board that’s all about hiding your belly

Since it’s my birthday month I’m going to do a giveaway!  One of the biggest things I hear from my clients and around town while I’m networking with other awesome business women is that you put yourself last.  You will spend money on your kids and your husband long before you will do even the smallest thing for yourself.  And you deserve some “Me Time”!  You deserve to relax for an hour, let your troubles fall away and leave refreshed.  You need that time to recharge.  So here’s your chance to take it!  You can win a 1 hour massage at Elements Massage!  Even with no kids I still have a hard time spending money & time on myself, I’m almost embarrassingly low maintenance.  I prefer to invest back in my business or splurge on weekend fun with Tim.  My only splurge on myself is my monthly massage from Elements Massage.  (I go to the South Park location).  It has been a godsend!  I was thrown by a horse when I was 18 and partially crushed my L5 Vertebrae.  I was told I’d be on pain killers and muscle relaxers the rest of my life.  And I was until 2 years ago when I happened to book an appointment with Lorraine at Elements Massage.  Now I’m off the pain meds and the muscle relaxers and I couldn’t be happier.  This isn’t some wimpy, light relaxing massage (which you can totally get!)  Lorraine is a former physical therapist and she does deep tissue massage, so she gets super deep and I’m usually sore afterwards but man does it make a difference!    So I thought since I enjoy it so much I would give one of my VIP members a 1 hour massage!

 

 

WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO TO WIN THE MASSAGE?

 

1. Like my Facebook Page
2. Join the VIP Boudoir Group
3. Invite Charlotte area women to like the VIP group

Whoever invites the most women by Friday the 18th will win the 60 Minute Massage!

 

 

Then keep an eye on the VIP group in the next week because I will be doing more giveaways to celebrate my birthday & the new studio!

This week’s Splurge vs Save is from L’agent by Agent Provocateur. Sure, you could spend $180-214 on an L’agent by Agent Provocateur playsuit and it would be totally worth it because their lingerie is amazing. ooooooooooor you could save some money (and, you know, put it towards boudoir products!) and pick up one of these similar playsuits from Yandy or ASOS.

March is finally here!  Hooray!  Which means 2 important things:

  1. The new home studio is OPEN!
  2.  It’s my birthday month!

I promise I’m not one of those people who insists on celebrating my birthday all month, but I thought I should do something for my awesome clients to celebrate.  There are still a few tweaks to me made to the studio and the hair and makeup room but it’s ready to shoot in!  I’m over the moon & absolutely love having a space I have access to whenever I need it.  Not having to lug a giant suitcase of lingerie + my photography gear everywhere is AWESOME!  At the end of March/beginning of April I will have a Boudoir Soiree to officially open the studio.

Not all lingerie has to be black, white or red! I know I tend to lean more in favor of classic black lingerie but sometimes you have to shake things up a bit! Adding fun colors to your lingerie collection adds interest to your boudoir photos and I think it also inspires you to be a little bit more fun and sassy. ASOS is great about offering a set in various colors and this set is no exception, it comes in blue, red and a really gorgeous pale pink/nude. There are 2 different bras, a triangle bra and an underwire bra, so depending on your sizing and desired look you have options. The underwire bra goes from 30A-36D and the triangle bra is sized xs-xl. The strappy bra can be paired with a frilly thong or a brazilian lace back bikini. Pull the bra & panty set together with a lace garter suspender.
