Over the years I’ve gotten so many questions about the studio closet and how it works, so let’s take a look!
The most asked question I get is what sizes do I have? I have BEAUTIFUL things from xS to 5x in drool-worthy colors, a HUGE selection of lingerie, including bodysuits, matching tops and bottoms, sassy t-shirts and kimonos. I may have the largest collection of bustiers, in so many colors, in Wisconsin! I also have several furs, leather pieces, hats and sexy masks.
Shoes? My shoe collection rivals the bustier selection! I was a shoe-hoarder before I started boudoir and I’ve only gotten worse over the years! There are 50+ pairs in sizes 5-11!
I have fishnets and silky stockings and two huge racks of statement jewelry, including some very sexy body chains and a couple of gorgeous queen-worthy crowns.
I always suggest you bring some items of your own (or THEIRS!) to make your session more personal, and every client receives a 10-page “what to wear” guide with info on what to look for and where to shop.
Before your session I’ll pull a bunch of outfits that I KNOW will photograph well and look PERFECT on you.
P.S. Sanitation is of the highest priority at JLReis Photography. Clients are required to wear underwear under our pieces, then the piece is placed in a lidded laundry hamper then laundered with Lysol Disinfectant Detergent.
It’s frustrating enough to shop for every day clothes, never mind lingerie. I mean, trying to choose between three different brands of cotton underwear is a chore, right? Now you have to find something sexy to wear for a photo session?!!
Don’t be afraid to ask a friend for their advice and we are ALWAYS available to talk you through the hard decisions. In fact, the first thing you receive from JLReis Photography after booking your session is our “What to Wear Guide!”
Start by figuring out the look you’re gong for: Dramatic, sexy, classy, pinup, bridal, or completely unclothed. Figuring out your boudoir wardrobe can be exciting! Choose your favorite colors and try on plenty of various types of lingerie.
Wear a plain colored dress-shirt tied at the waist, it looks great with underwear or shorts!
Not ready to take it all off? Wear an oversized sweater teamed with thick knee high socks or even thigh highs and heels
Wear a jersey from his favorite team combined with shorts and knee socks. A bonus for you if you have his favorite players jersey or one from his HS glory days!
Corsets fit any figure, especially a plus-size one and JLReis Photography may have the largest selection of corsets in NE Wisconsin
Don’t be afraid to try out bodysuits, thigh highs, stockings, knee-high socks, high-waisted underwear, and slips. You’d be surprised to see what flatters you the most!
Heels are a popular choice! Even a pair of cute tennis shoes can be spunky and fun! Stay away from flats/thong sandals and remember, we have over 50 pairs of shoes in size 6 to size 11!
Here are a few online shops that I recommend for amazing lingerie, but keep in mind that there are some local stores that have great options, such as Target, Victoria’s Secret, Torrid, Kohl’s and even Walmart! I’ve gotten some GREAT finds at local thrift stores, too!
