BOUDOIR TIPS – STOCKINGS
STOCKINGS ARE ALMOST AS ESSENTIAL AS HEELS FOR ANY BODOIR PHOTOSHOOT.
In a bygone age, stockings were worn by almost every woman. They were regarded as expensive, feminine, sexy and ladylike. No outfit was complete without the right pair of hosiery no matter the occasion or weather.
This has changed of course and many women who come to us say they’ve never worn a pair of stockings in their life.
We work hard to ensure you look super comfortable during your photoshoot with us and if you hate the thought of wearing stockings then don’t wear them. That said, it’s a perfect excuse to play dress up and try the role of seductive ‘vixen’ and maybe you’ll see that a good pair of stockings will add the ‘Va Va Voom’ effect But you need to be careful which ones you buy for maximum effect.
Try not to buy any stockings with elastic at the top, particularly if you don’t have slim legs. The elastic crates a pinch area which doesn’t look great in photographs.
Since a boudoir photoshoot is such a special event, it’s worth going the extra mile and really dressing up.
We recommend stockings that require garter belt support. not only do they look better but pinch far less around the thigh.
We understand that rules are meant to be broken sometimes and some ‘hold ups’ do look amazing on those with genetically blessed legs. Check how you look in the mirror first, though and remember, no matter how good your legs, the less elastic, the better. Also, make sure you buy the correct size for your leg lengths. Stockings should never look like socks.
We also recommend silk seamed stockings, great for a vintage look but great for any boudoir photoshoot. Teamed with a wicked pair of Louboutains for a ‘knock em dead’ look.100% silk stockings are truly amazing, and incredibly rare. They don’t have any stretch in them due to there being no lycra.
Hosiery can do magic to your legs, calves and outfit by concealing a less perfect skin, make mature skin look smooth and a young skin stand out, slim a big leg and calve and make beautiful legs and calves stand out.
