Our Favorite Lingerie Stores For All Sizes and Shapes

Edmonton Boudoir Photography

Who says that you have to ‘look’ a certain way, or be a certain size, to enjoy sexy lingerie? Nobody. Not us, girl. If you’ve ever donned fishnets, a tutu, a herring-boned corset, or anything silky, shimmery and sheer, you know JUST how powerful those outfits make you. 

WHEN should you wear lingerie? For an anniversary? A gift? To spice up a romantic partner? Sure, but … 

Why not put on a corset just because you feel like it? (You really don’t ever need a reason to) 

Why not slip on a pair of fishnets underneath your office clothing? (It can be your secret)

Why not buy yourself the matching bra and panty set? (It’s your money, you work hard for it)

Why not just wake up one morning, take a look at yourself in the mirror and think,

“I want to feel sexy, and beautiful.” And I don’t give a damn if I’m the only one who sees it.

If you HAVEN’T taken the time to dress yourself up, for really no special occasion, then it’s way past time that you treated yourself. Here’s a few of our favorite places to buy lingerie (for ALL body shapes and sizes) online and in and Edmonton.

And guess what else – they have something for EVERYONE. No matter your shape or size. They’ll even show off the best parts of your post-baby bod!

We've gathered a list of our favorite lingerie stores online, and in Edmonton and Vancouver for your next boudoir photography session.

Best Online Lingerie Stores

How can you tell if an online lingerie store is any good? It’s difficult these days with SO many online stores, but when it comes to your lingerie you want to make sure you’re getting what works for YOU! 

Check the reviews! An honest online store won’t have all 5-star reviews. Read the materials on the pieces (if a corset is made with steel boning, it’s probably a winner), and make sure they aren’t dropshipping cheap products.

Did you know?

When you book in for a boudoir shoot with us we will send you prep guides to help you pick out the right themes, clothes, and more?

We work together with all our clients to build a personalized experience EVERY TIME.

How Can I Tell My Lingerie Size When Buying Online?

Most online lingerie stores will have a handy size chart. All you have to know is your hip, waist, and breast measurements and you’ll be able to get your lingerie size.

If you’re a standard M, you should be a M online, or an XL, L, S etc. Remember that any overseas lingerie stores may have smaller sizes! 

If you’re ever in doubt of your bra size – there’s nothing better than having a bra that FITS. Trust us. 

Go visit any lingerie store and get yourself accurate measurements – you will thank yourself, and thank us later.

… still feeling that hesitation to treat yourself? 

I’m going to teach you something. I’m going to teach you the art of the Power Pose, quickly, right here right now. And you can do this anywhere, anytime you’re feeling like you’re unsure of yourself, or nervous.

Stand up straight, with your feet shoulder-width apart. Place your hands on your hips. 

Now, do nothing. For two whole minutes. Stand just like that, that defiance, that strength, that power that is emanating from you in this moment in this power pose. Do you know what this is doing? 

This pose psychologically tricks your brain into convincing itself it (and you) are confident – because you are. 

The next time you do something you’re unsure of, you’re feeling timid or any trepidation, or you’re thinking, “I can’t,” – rock the Power Pose for that two minutes, and you can tell yourself, 

“I can.”

What Do I Wear For A Boudoir Shoot?

Did anybody ever tell you you HAD to wear lingerie to your boudoir shoot? We’re here to tell you NO. What do you wear to a boudoir shoot?

Anything you want.

It’s not what you wear that makes you sexy – it’s the person you are.  It’s OUR job to bring that person out – no matter what you’re wearing.

Sure, wearing lingerie is a GREAT way to feel empowered, bold, strong, and sexy, but we want you to be comfortable in front of our cameras.


It’s not about what you wear, or what you don’t wear, that makes you sexy, beautiful and powerful – it’s YOU. The woman behind all of it. If you call us and say, “I want to try boudoir, but I want to wear my favorite t-shirt,” great. Wear what makes YOU feel confident.

Trust us, we’ll do all the rest. That’s our job. It’s your job to show up, and be yourself. Or, show up and find the version of yourself you’ve been waiting to discover. 

Book Your Boudoir Shoot 

At the end of the day, your boudoir shoot has nothing to do with what you wear …

It’s who you are. 

It’s about the experience that we create together. It’s a self-discovery session. It’s seeing yourself in a different light, and thinking,

“I never knew I could look like that.”

We’ll answer ALL your questions and help craft the PERFECT boudoir session for YOU.
