HOW TO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN LINGERIE!
Updated: May 4
For so many people, wearing lingerie - whether in front of someone or just for yourself- can be intimidating! The fear of being judged, not feeling comfortable in your own skin, or not knowing how to wear lingerie properly can be overwhelming. But if you can get past these and put it on anyways, it can feel so liberating, empowering, and fun!
Start with the basics: If you’re new to wearing lingerie, I highly reccommend getting a bodysuit that can be worn as lingerie or under jeans on a night out. This will make it seem less intimidating, and be a great way to get started! For this, I love the bodysuits that Pinsy has- they are beautiful, there are multiple styles, and I have never had a client that didn't say they felt most comfortable in it. Prefer 2 pieces
Go With What You Know: There are so many different styles of lingerie out there and if you're not used to shopping for it, things can be overwhelming. It can be helpful to go with what is familiar. If you like to keep things casual, maybe grab a Calvin Klein set. If you like wearing short, flowy dresses, maybe try a cute baby doll (disclaimer - wear your babydoll at home, but don't wear it at your boudoir photo shoot!).
Get the Right Fit: Wearing lingerie that fits you properly is key to feeling confident and comfortable. If you've never been measured do yourself the biggest favor of doing it, because it can be a game changer.
Wear it: This may seem redundant, or obvious but it's worth saying! The more you wear it, the more comfortable you will be in it. You've probably read it in magazines, and I'll repeat it here- wearing lingerie under your clothes is a surefire way to make you feel a little sexier and a little more powerful. Even and especially if nobody else will see it! So next time you have a big meeting, you have a first date, or you just need a pick me up - give your lingerie a go.
Experiment: Lingerie is a fun and playful way to express your personality and tap into your sexuality- just because you bought a pastel pink lace bodysuit doesn't mean you can't also buy a hot strappy black set if that's what you want! There are no rules - the only thing that matters, truly, is that you feel HOT in it!
Do a Boudoir Photo Shoot: If there is one thing that will get you feeling smoking hot in your lingerie, it's a luxury boudoir experience with a fabulous professional photographer (I consider myself to be in that category and you can definitely reach out to me by clicking here if you want!) A good boudoir photographer will be able to hold space for you so you can get out of your head and into your body. Couple that with amazing posing guidance, and it's a recipe for walking out of the studio feeling maybe the hottest you've ever felt. And forget about when you see your photos!!
And there you have it! If you're wanting to feel comfortable in lingerie, definitely give these a try, and see how amazing you can feel and how much fun you can have!
