17 Thoughts All Women Have When Going Lingerie Shopping

1. “Time to Pull Off an Adriana Lima! Wait. Where Do I Begin?”

You walk into the store and your sprits are high in excitement for your boudoir shoot. And no idea where to begin? No worries! Our helpful Lingerie Guide, which comes complimentary with all bookings along with 2 other e-books, will be your best friend, helping you find the best look!

2. “Can I Rock This Without the Wings?”

You can. But you don’t have to!

I took this image on the right during an outdoor boudoir session and have had so many women since request these wings! I actually went ahead to to special order these and I now have real Ostrich feather, Victoria’s Secret runway angel wings available for special Toronto boudoir sessions in the studio! Interested? Drop me a line and I can fill you up with the details!

 

3. “Do Women Really Wear This Kinda Stuff?” 

In the privacy of an all-female professional boudoir photography studio, which makes you feel like home, you’ll end up surprising yourself for what you can dare to wear 😉

The idea is to keep it classy and beautiful at all time. That’s my job. Your job is to bring that one piece you so badly want but feel almost embarrassed to even show it to anyone, let alone be photographed in it. Challenge yourself. Or you will regret not at least trying it out!

 

4. “Sold a Kidney to Get This Set, I Better Look Like a Supermodel!”

You WILL look like a supermodelThat’s my job 😉

Also, you don’t have to sell a kidney. I have special coupon codes and recommendations for you to get beautiful custom lingerie that’s locally produced and designed. Let’s talk and I will help ya out!

 

5. “Is This Supposed to be This Uncomfortable?”

A little bit of pain, and you get lots of sexy in gain! But it doesn’t always need to be this bad. Check out these ideas for a kick-ass beautiful boudoir session. During your Production Design Meeting, we will have lots of time to think outside the box 😉 Hit me up?

6. “Who Am I Kidding? Let’s Just Stick to the Period Panties”

Maybe it’s time for a change. Maybe you are long overdue to treat yourself and get out of those cotton staples.

And, girl, we have seen it all at the studio. And our all-female environment is stocked with supplies too!

7. “Babydolls? Garter? Sexy Satin? I NEED to Have ALL of This!”

There is NO wardrobe change limit to your session. NONE!

So go ahead and bring that suitcase and the garment bag and everything else and we will help you carry it all into the studio!

 

8. Quadruple Boob Syndrome

Oh, I know this one too well! Pushup doing weird things that puppies keep overspilling!

During your boudoir session, we will do a proper lingerie consult and along with my years of experience in beauty posing and retouching, we will make sure you look absolutely as perfect as you truly are!

9: “I Figured Out Where All the Straps Go!”

Rest assured, you will also look as sassy as you see yourself in the fitting room mirror!

 

10. Is There a Tutorial I Can Find for This?

Pffft.

We’re experts at dressing you up (and down!) for the perfect boudoir look you can ever have! Just order that fishnet one piece you’ve been eyeing online and we will help you get in it! AND kill it!

11. “Hold On. How Do I Get Out Of This Now?”

Get that corset, girl! And we will help you lace it up for the shoot and loosen it up after, too!

12. “Ohhhhh no! Please Don’t Tear! I Will Give Up Coffee for a Whole Week! PleaseeeeDon’tTear!”

13. “SALE TIME! There goes my rent money…”

Grab your girlfriend and go to splurgetown with lingerie shopping! Better yet, bring her in, too, and make your boudoir session a double session!

Ever heard of a better Girls’ Day Out idea?!

14. “Um… What Exactly is This Supposed to ‘Cover?'”

For your boudoir session, go a little risqué. A little out of your comfort zone. And we’ll transform your beautiful form into a complete work of art!

15. “Street-corner Fishnet? Or High-End Stockings?

Why not both? A little experimentation hurt no one 😉

 

16. Oooh, Yeah! That’s the One!

Your dream lingerie can be anything! From that vintage beauty your grandma gave your mom or that gorgeous new Fenty line.

Finest Handmade Lingerie in Toronto

Off the rack doesn’t work for your rack?

THEN IT’S TIME TO SPLURGE ON FINE LINGERIE MADE IN TORONTO!

Recently I’ve become a collector of fine lingerie. The reason? After having the baby, there were not only physical changes in my body but also personality changes. For example, I’d rather dish out a few extra bucks to get a comfortable and a PERFECT FIT set of undergarments than the same amount of money on 5 cheaper off-the-rack versions that never feel worth the spent. Honestly, Victoria’s Secret, LaSenza, La Vie en Rose etc have become a huge hit or miss for me.

So I went on a hunt in the city and I’m happy to report that I found not one but a few FABULOUS women who have specialized stores and studios in Toronto to create lingerie that looks and fits the absolute best I have ever seen.

I’m listing these amazing custom lingerie found and produced in Toronto for your ease <3

 

Women pour their hearts out to me when they call me to talk about why they want to do this shoot. Let me share some of those stories with you.

*With Love Lingerie*

Carrie, the owner and designer of With Love Lingerie is one of the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. Her collections reminds me of the grandeur of a Gatsby party. What’s more? For a limited time, all Dream Boudoir Toronto ladies will get a 50% off coupon with booking for anything purchased off her website. THAT’S RIGHT, GIRL! Half-off your entire order of this custom-made lingerie brand straight out of Hamilton!

HOW COOL IS THAT!

 

*Bettie Fatal*

This brand of Toronto’s finest handmade custom lingerie is romantic and deadly in nature. I LOVE how the owner and designer of Bettie Fatal, the lovely Avery Barsony, quotes the words of McQueen, “I want people to be afraid of the women I dress.” A girl after my own heart. Love her collections. Check out her Instagram by the same name for her always limited-edition new designs.

 

*Ohhh Lulu*

In the world of custom lingerie experts in Toronto/GTA, Sarah Norwood is a very well-known name. She also sells sewing patterns if you’re a DIY kinda girl and she also takes custom orders for fine lingerie in Toronto and beyond. Check it out and let me know what you love from her line for your next shoot!

 

*Gigi’s House of Frills*

Julia, who also goes by Gigi, is the sweetest vintage doll herself and the owner of this cute store right off Ossington station. If you are looking for beautiful vintage lingerie in Toronto or vintage-inspired, this store the place to go. She also stocks some beautiful ready-to-wear items from some of the local designers I have already talked about above. If you go to my instagram (@TorontoBoudoirPhotography) you will be able to see a tour of her store I have put up on my IGTV.

Beyond Lingerie: Custom Corsets

In addition to your “standard” lingerie sets, corsets are a BRILLIANT idea for a beautiful and elaborate boudoir photography theme. I recently did a shoot with Dianna and will be posting the pictures soon. Her corsets scream luxury and ornate art and are meant to last a very long time. Take a look at this style of custom made fine lingerie in Toronto and set up and appointment with her for a fitting of your dream corset. Then come to me and we will photograph the best boudoir photography session in Toronto anyone would’ve ever seen!

 

Beyond Toronto: Montréal

Ellesmere Lingerie has my heart! Although they are not based in Toronto, Montréal is not at all that far. You can order online and bring these beauties over for your very own, fully customized boudoir photoshoot experience. Yes, you can have it all!

 

AND GUESS WHAT?

Shopping at With Love Lingerie, Bettie Fatal, or Gigi’s House of Frills makes you eligible for a store credit at my studio for your prints! Curious how that works? Let’s talk and I will explain 🙂
