Lingerie and Posing for Plus Sized Women

Boudoir photography is for every woman no matter her age, size or relationship status. Every woman is sexy and beautiful and at Foto Flix Boudoir Photography, we will reveal that.  Our hair and makeup makeovers will make you see just how beautiful you really are, your self-confidence will soar and it will show in your photos. Our lighting and posing techniques will have you wondering, “Is that REALLY me?”  The whole idea of boudoir is to make you look and feel like a NEW you.  When you or your lover see you at your most sexy, you will have increased confidence and he will look at you in a different way . . . you may even become his new fantasy!  For single women, you will preserve your youth and beauty, as well as renew your self-confidence.  Sexy is possible at any size or age.

Plus size women are just as sexy as thin women. With good fitting lingerie and the right poses and lighting, we will make the most of plus sized curves while minimizing problem areas.

Tips for Picking the Right Lingerie:

  • Silk or satin lingerie that glides over your curves is a wonderful choice; avoid stretchy cottons and small printed patterns.
  • If you have a tummy, do NOT choose lingerie that is see-through in the tummy area.
  • Choose lingerie with a lot of structure like a corset.  It is very flattering and will make you look slimmer.
  • Be sure to try on your lingerie before your shoot.  If your lingerie doesn’t fit properly, especially if it is too tight, there is not much we can do to hide that.
  • Bras should support around the rib cage so that your bra straps won’t have to be so tight that they are pushing into your shoulders and causing bulges.
  • Panties should also fit so they aren’t pressing into your skin.
  • High-heeled shoes are wonderful for elongating your legs which will make them look thinner.  They will also improve your posture in standing poses.

  • Bring a matching robe/cover or shawl we can use to cover arms or drape over problem areas. This will artfully give you coverage while still showing lots of skin.  (Fig. 1)

We Emphasize Your Assets with Posing

Every woman has concerns about different parts of her body, but every woman also has features that are unique and sexy. We will emphasize those features for beautiful images you will love.

The eyes are one of the most captivating features. Eye contact is sexy, alluring and captivating. By using a high camera angle to make you look up, your jaw line will seem thinner and your eyes will open wider.  (Fig 2.)

While curves are super sexy, we will minimize your hips and tummy. Every woman is self conscious about these areas no matter her size. We accomplish this with poses where your hips are further away from the camera.  (Fig. 2)

We will conceal tummies by having you lie on your tummy (Fig. 2), lie on your back (Fig. 3), or hiding it with props.  (Fig. 4)  One popular pose for this is lying on your stomach while resting on your elbows (this will also enhance your cleavage). (Fig. 2)

By combining beautifully fitting lingerie, flattering posing and creative lighting, we create very sexy images of our plus sized clients. Sophia Loren said “Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful.”  After our makeover, you will believe you are beautiful and sexy.  You will have more self-confidence just remembering how you felt during your boudoir photo session.  You may be giving the images as a gift to your man, but they will also be a gift to you as a woman.

  14. As a new boudoir photography studio here in Johannesburg it is wonderful to see how well you are marketing your studio and products. I am also I pressed with the great content you provide to set your clients ease even while they are still considering the idea of a shoot.

    • It requires spending a lot of time with them during the consult to make them feel comfortable but its worth it. I think they don’t mind paying a little extra because of it. Good luck with your biz. A little advice … I do not recommend giving away your high rez digitals. Your clients will purchase larger prints if you don’t give them away, so you have the potential of making a lot more money. I sell the digitals, but at a hefty price. And I only sell them as large as 8X10. I retouch with the intention of printing up to an 8X10. When you enlarge, veins, discolorations, etc. are more noticeable, so more retouching is required. If they protest and think they should have the digitals for free, I will give them to them for free at 100 dpi so they can make their own slideshow or view on their computer. Most don’t share boudoir photos online.
