2.) Make a Perfect Playlist & Dance

I told my sister that I was a little nervous about my boudoir shoot and the next morning she surprised me with a link to a playlist she’d made to get me amped for what I was about to do. If you follow my snapchat account, you saw me jamming to songs and feeling myself. Her playlist is called “In My Vicky’s” and it’s basically perfect, you can listen to it here.

    Boudoir Photos By A Professional Cost Close To $200 And As High As $1500. I’m Plus Size And I Would Like To See Myself In Gorgeous Lingerie That Compliments My Body Type And Thigh High Stockings That Doesn’t Make May Voluptuous Thighs Look Like A Muffin Tops. I Truly Would Love To Do Some “Boudoir Photos” For My Other Half. You Took Some Gorgeous Photos! And Thank You So Much For Tips🤗 But The Minute I’m Able To, You Will See Me Posing Up A Storm, With A Story To Tell Behind Every Photo! 🤗

    So beautiful! A bourdoir photoshops is definitely something I’ve always wanted to do. It’s really nice to see that it can be done without having to spend hundreds of dollars on a professional photographer.

    This was absolutely gorgeous! So tastefully done and you look great. I have always wanted to do something like this but tip #8 has been the exact reason I have always told myself no. After watching this I want to get some lingerie that makes me feel beautiful and do a little photo shoot myself. Your blog is so inspirational. As always thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for writing this post. I’m sure there are others besides me, who have been curious about a boudoir shoot, even considered doing one, but weren’t sure what to wear (this would be me!). I still think I need to lose weight before I do one, though…

    Yess!!! I absolutely adore this post. Don’t wait for the perfect body. Girl. I wanted to do a boudoir shoot last year and didn’t follow through because of body issues at the time. I have now laid to rest the whispers about my body. Thank you for always being an encouragement, Cece!

    I plan on doing a boudoir shoot before my 30th bday (8/16/86), I’m single now, probably still will be then, but I think its a great confidence booster. I am more confident now (at my heaviest) than I’ve ever been. It’s time to document it…lol

    I am not sure about a boudoir shoot, but I love the idea of custom made lingerie. The shoot might be something to do for my 30th birthday or some other milestone.

    I love the confidence in your photos! But can I ask if when moving around the skirt stayed in place? I never have luck with undergarments staying put when wearing dresses/skirts.

    I just bought my first lingerie that I felt really comfortable and sexy in. I am just a naturally shy person but I am trying new things. Probably gaining a lot of this confidence from watching you!

    I have a couple of ideas for boudoir shoots. I want to get a really nice one to hang above my bed. I was never stopped by the body shape though, I think it’s more because my good friends who are great photographers would have me too busy laughing to be sexy LOL

    I would love to do a photo shoot. I think what worries me is finding the right photographer and a place. I’ve never thought of asking a friend. This sounds like a great birthday gift to myself for this year!

    I JUST did a boudoir shoot as a plus size woman and it was not only INCREDIBLY empowering, but so, so much fun! And the photos came out amazingly. I really could not recommend it more!

      Hey I don’t know if anyone else is having this problem but even though I have commented and signed up for the mailing list (already loving it!) Rafflecopter keeps forgetting my entries everytime I come back to this page (I may have brought it up to look at the tips and show them to friends a few times) I hope all of the entries are showing up on your end!

    You’re so right about not waiting for the perfect body to do it! I’ve been holding off on investing in quality lingerie because I figured I’d be more comfortable when I’m in better shape, but I have to learn to be confident with what I have right now. Impish Lee’s selection is AMAZING!

    I’m all about not waiting for the right moment, right body, right anything. If only I could get the courage to go from behind the camera to in front of the camera then we’d be in business. Love, love, love your body positive attitude! xoxo
