What is a Boudoir – Dark & Sultry style?

The Dark Boudoir shoot is a little bit more edgy, a little less innocent than the Romantic Boudoir one. There is usually lots of shadows and contrasts (perfect to hide the areas you don’t want to show or little flaws you’s rather not see) and the ambiance is more secretive and mysterious. You don’t show it all, but you definitely entice to see more.

Perfect for you if….

  • you are more black than pink
  • more edgy than girly
  • prefer shadows to bright sunshine
  • like mystery and secrets

What should I wear?

Here are a few suggestions, but don’t let this stop you if you have more ideas! Usually, with the Boudoir – Dark & Sultry style,  try to stay with darker colors, rather than pastel or really light ones. Lingerie styles can include long, see-through nightgowns, lace teddies, sexy corsets or bustiers, etc.

Accessories often include classy jewelry, like pearls and diamonds, delicate bracelets, as well as high-heel shoes, of course.
