Your upcoming photoshoot with us is a big deal! So, naturally, the outfits and the props that you choose to bring along are important to consider and plan carefully.

We’ve previously shared lots of boudoir outfit inspiration here on the blog.

Have a look around and you’ll find articles full of lingerie suggestions as well as alternative boudoir outfit ideas if lingerie is not your thing. We’ve even written about loungewear looks we love since we recommend having something warm and cosy to wear in between shots during a shoot.

Today though, we’re paying homage to a classic boudoir outfit; one that we feel deserves a special mention of its own….the classic white shirt.

Keep reading as we’re sharing plenty of white shirt photoshoot ideas so you can see how versatile it is!

What style of shirt should you wear?

If you’re currently planning what clothes to wear for your upcoming boudoir photoshoot, have you thought about wearing a shirt?  A white shirt photoshoot is very popular with our clients.

A piece of advice…If you’d like to wear one in some of your portraits, we recommend that you choose a white shirt without patterns, logos or details as these could date the photo.

1) Fitted white shirts

Fitted white shirts look great.

In this example, you can see the lovely cinched-in waist, the interesting shape of the sleeves, and the pattern on the fabric of this lovely lady’s white shirt.

2) White oversized shirts

White oversized shirts work particularly well too in a boudoir shoot too.

Many of our ladies choose to sneak their partner’s white shirts from their wardrobes. (Shhh! We won’t tell them if you don’t!?)

How should you wear a white shirt in your boudoir photoshoot?

There are so many ways to style a white shirt photoshoot.

  • A white shirt can be worn as a cover-up, on its own, or you can wear it with lingerie
  • A popular way is to wear the shirt undone, off the shoulder and draped loosely around your body. This can create a seductive, and ‘almost-undressed’ look, giving a hint of what’s underneath
  • Or, the white shirt can be worn on the shoulder, but with a few of the buttons at the top undone to reveal just a glimpse of a collarbone or shoulder.

Depending on the length of the shirt, we can also style it so that it gives a glimpse of your underwear or the top of your thighs or bottom.
