Lingerie is a huge part of any boudoir experience, and the lingerie you choose has the power to make or break your boudoir session! The key to having the perfect boudoir session is choosing lingerie that makes you feel empowered and sexy in your own skin: there’s no ‘right’ set for your session or body type, but we always advise lingerie that’s comfortable but also takes you out of your comfort zone.
Investing in a new lingerie set can leave you feeling refreshed and have you seeing yourself in a different light, so it’s an amazing way to prepare for your Amorous Boudoir session.
These 5 Inclusive lingerie stores are all LGBTQ+ friendly, cater for every body size and are our personal favorite places to buy beautiful, unique lingerie pieces to prepare for your Amorous Boudoir session.

Their website also gives you the option to browse by ‘Inspiration’ where you can find luxe lingerie, retro lingerie and erotic lingerie to give you unique theme ideas for your boudoir session with us.
2. Fashion Nova Curve
Fashion Nova Curve is an amazing choice for plus-size bodies, as their entire label is dedicated to styles available in all sizes.

3. TomBoy X
TomBoy X because are a queer-founded brand, and are the best for inclusive styles which cater for the LGBTQ+ and trans community.

We can personally say these sets are comfortable!

(Note: The turnaround for bespoke Origami Customs designs is 4-6 weeks, so plan in advance if you’re planning on purchasing a set from them for your boudoir session!)
