Boudoir for All Bodies, Ages, and Genders with Brooklyn Photographer Boudoir by Nomi

During my last trip to New York, I had the opportunity to do a body positive boudoir shoot with Brooklyn photographer Boudoir by Nomi. I am no stranger to posing and styling plus size lingerie but since I had to pack to be in New York for 10 days, I had limited space. I decided to style the same black bra and panties, five different ways. Shooting with Boudoir by Nomi made that a total breeze. She came ready with poses, various locations all in her private 1,500 square foot Prospect Heights studio (including a rooftop!) and styling help when I asked. 

If you are new to the idea of boudoir - a quick image search probably reveals sensual images of thin, white cis women and that's one of the reasons why it's important to me as a fat queer woman to create these images for myself. To me, boudoir is about disrupting the male gaze and challenging beauty standards for who is allowed to feel beautiful and empowered in lingerie. Arriving in Boudoir by Nomi's studio, I felt instantly at ease when I found out that she would be photographing the queer fashion show I would be walking in the next day.

I know that styling for plus size boudoir shoots can be a challenge. I decided to start with a classic foundation: the Curvy Couture Dream Lift Plus Size Push Up paired with the Essential Boyshort. I added bodysuits, crop tops, dresses and babydolls to complement these lingerie essentials. If you ever need help styling, I would be happy to help you find the plus size lingerie that feels right for you. I did my own hair and makeup for this shoot but Nomi offers packages that include that so you can have everything taken care of for you!

I would like to think that my boudoir shoots are a reminder that boudoir doesn't have to be pin-up. You can wear what feels right for you. Each look I put together, Nomi got excited for. She made me feel at ease not only in my personal style but she also used body positive language that made me confident that I would be represented authentically.
