    Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable hun, you could wear anything from full stockings, suspenders, corset to just a string of pearls.

    There many types of lingerie on lovehoney, why not order a few items and see what takes your fancy? They have a fantastic returns policy which is essentially try before you buy.

    Here's the lingerie buyers guide if you need more help - http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/sexy-lingerie/buyers-guide/body-shape-lingerie-guide/

    Above all, have fun, be YOU and wear whatever makes you feel comfortable!

    As above, as little or as much as you are comfortable in, its boudoir not glamour/ porn so things that boost your confidence and you are comfortable wearing in front of a photographer.

    Wear absolutely anything you are comfortable in. I done a boudoir shoot for our anniversary, the photographer done my makeup for me and gave me a glass of wine. I was a bit nervous at first but she was fantastic and advised me of poses etc. I was really pleased with my photos after.

    I have done this type of photoshoot and the partner was totally suprised and loved it. I enjoy looking at them to remind myself how sexy i can be.

    Here is my advice:

    For anything you wear make sure it fits well, avoid anything that is going to overly pinch or dig into the skin.

    For your lingiere think colors and styles. A corset can be amzing, but so can a babydoll or bra and pants set. Take a variety of colors that you enjoy vs. all looks in the same color family.

    Think beyond the lingiere as well, you can do one of his dress shirts over a bra and pants set, a sports jersey or even a costume themed outfit (LH sells some really nice looking ones.)

    And don't forget the shoes, play with hot colored heels and remember nude extends the leg to make you look taller.

    I am not sure how many looks you get to include in your shoot, but take more than you need as the photographer can help you choose. If they are providing anything such as shoes, extra jewelry, etc. know that ahead of time so you have anything you need.

    The photographer should have a portfolio for you to review to get ideas or simply google it and you will be amazed the images that come up to help you brainstorm.

    If they do not provide hair and make up make sure you plan ahead to have that taken care of and above all relax and enjoy the shoot!

    Wanted to add here that if you do a babydoll to blend in the tummy area go for ones with modled / push up cups as they look super sexy in photos.

    Mine are prints in a book I keep hidden away form him sometimes. I will often lay it on the bed for him to look out while I bathe or shower when we are getting together for a hot night in. I can't state enough how much these photos helped me with my body image and have spiced things up between us.

    I have had numerous surgeries and have one more to go, but i have have amassed quite a bit of scarring, but I'm going to do it for my OH as a gift after my final surgery, it'll be a confidence boost something I can look back on and be proud of. The ones on mighty aphrodite are beautifully shot ,so my hope is for them to be able to do something creative like a draped white shirt strategically placed and if they can't they are my scars which tell a story.....can't wait x

    I just do my own boudoir style shots. I use my OH's Panasonic digital SLR camera and his tripod. He even has a wireless remote I can hook up, so I can get into positions and just click away with the remote.

    you can always change filters after taking the pictures and with some decent editing software you can do stuff like soft focus, to make images more mellow.

    I love experimenting with putting on my sexy lingerie and snapping away when I get the time. Mirrors behind you can get flattering angles too!

    Chairs and door frames make good props though I also quite fancy posing in the garden, if only it were more secluded!
