Tips for Choosing Shoes for Your Boudoir Outfit

Finding the perfect lingerie or sexy outfit is one of the most important steps you’ll take to prepare for your upcoming boudoir shoot. The right ensemble will make you feel gorgeous and help you tap into your inner goddess!

It’s just as important, however, that you also choose the perfect accessories to complement your look and bring out your most seductive qualities—especially your shoes. Keep these tips in mind as you decide which shoes will give you the most confident strut walking in and out of your boudoir session!Boudoir Photographers in Boston MA

Go with a sexy style.

You want your boudoir shoes to be as sleek and sexy as your outfit and your attitude! Go with a style that’s thin and pointy. Obviously, heels are going to be your best bet—the right ones will radiate sensuality. Avoid wedges or chunkier block heels unless you’re going for vintage, as they won’t really go with the vibe of the shoot.

If heels aren’t your thing, opt for a pair of strappy sandals that tempt the camera with even more skin. We recommend you stick with a closed toe, to leave a little mystery and avoid any peeping stockings. Or, slide on a pair of thigh high or cowboy boots to add a provocative touch to your ensemble.

Another option, if you’re the kind of person who likes to feel your bare feet on the ground, is skipping the shoes all together! This can give your photos a more natural feel and put some extra focus on the lingerie you choose—just make sure your toes are freshly painted!

Accentuate your legs.

The right shoes will make your legs look long, lean, and luscious—qualities you want to flaunt in a boudoir shoot! Avoid ankle straps that cut your feet and legs awkwardly in places you want to show off. The same idea applies to ankle boots.

The reason most people associate heels with lingerie is because they make your calves flex and your booty pop! This makes them the ideal footwear for your boudoir shoot.

Choose the right color.

You don’t want to show up in a seductive piece of red lingerie and a pair of bright yellow heels! It’s important to coordinate your shoe color with your outfit. While you’re not likely to make such an obvious mistake as pairing red and yellow, there are a few subtle mishaps to which you could fall victim.

Black is a sexy, mysterious, and versatile color that adds drama to any outfit. Black heels will work with almost anything. If you’re going with white lingerie for a bridal shoot or more innocent look though, you’ll want to go with red or white heels. Black or nude shoes won’t work with white! You’ll also want to avoid footwear with ornate decorations like flowers or bows, as you won’t be seeing much of the top of your shoe—which means you should also take care to choose a pair with bottoms that aren’t worn out.

Whether you’re looking for a reason to buy a fresh new pair of sexy shoes or just to dig those black stilettos out of the back of your closet, a boudoir photo session is a great opportunity to show off your body, spirit, and your kicks. Schedule yours today with The Pouting Room, where we’re determined to make you feel beautiful in anything you choose to wear!
