I know that this wardrobe and outfit thing can be overwhelming. Looking good should appear effortless – and, in fact, it often is not.  It took me a long time to realize that certain cuts and drapes and colors did not look good on me. And others looked pretty amazing. And when I have something on my body that looks and FEELS amazing – confidence kicks in and I’m feeling it.

The #1 Thing To Remember About Boudoir Wardrobe

Fit is everything. You will want to make sure the pieces you bring in fit you well – supporting and revealing.  Check to make sure the items you choose aren’t too large with excess fabric.  And that they aren’t too small and restrictive.  Your selections should hug curves the right way – not cut into your body.

Want some fun ideas on how to make it a little more interesting and fun?  Try layering.  For a classic look, add a garter belt or a pair of thigh highs to a basic bra and panty set.  You can add a peignoir, robe or a sheer shirt.

Choose pieces that are cut to highlight your favorite physical features. If you love your chest, choose a lower cut or asymmetrical neckline. If you are totally about your back, choose something backless or that has a low swoop to show it off.long sleeve sparkly black bodysuit body suit boudoir new england wardrobe ideas

If you want to show off your collarbones and shoulders, choose pieces that have singular straps (like bra straps) instead of a halter (which mask collar bones). But if you are all about those shoulders, that’s where the racer backs and halters come in.  

You may be wearing very little, but the choice of what you wear can still be an important one. 

Stomach your best asset? Pick a few pairs of low-cut underwear to properly frame and flaunt it.

Want a little more length? A high-cut panty or bodysuit will draw the eye up, creating the illusion of longer legs.

Tall?  Embrace it!  Tall people look amazing in the classic bra, panties, garter belt and thigh-high stocking ensemble. Why?  Because it keeps our attention on the length of your legs.

Curves for days?  Lucky you.  Can you guess what I am about to suggest?  Yes, that’s right a bodysuit.  You can also keep those curves coming with a retro slip cut on the bias or a high waisted garter belt or panty!low maintenance? start by shopping your closet.
