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.
