12 days out ...................
So ladies, after @susielinquist
contacted me my initial thoughts were: she really chose me? She is the queen of boudoir photography and she would like to photograph me? ........... what do I wear? ....What in the world do I wear haha!
As I mentioned in my previous post, I had never considered actually doing anything of this sort. So I turned to my trusty Pinterest and started looking at boudoir photography to see what in the world women wear.
A Little backstory on me. Body image had always been part of my struggle. Starting at a young age, I was a busy athlete. Competing in tae Kwon do, swimming and gymnastics, along with participating in golf, dance, track ........ anything really.
I noticed in middle school that the jeans and adorable shirts that all the girls would wear just didn’t fit me..... I of course assumed that it was simply because I was larger than them and couldn’t wear any of the sought after brand names( not that my Mama would have willingly purchased them if I had fit).Which was social suicide for a middle schooler. Looking back at pictures I was nothing but skin, bones and muscle..... The reality was that the muscle development ( especially in my quads and shoulders) that I had by then, didn’t mesh with the cuts and fabric of the in styles.
Always being involved in sports that put me wearing a swim suit or a leotard of course made me very conscious of what that looked like on me.....
Going into young adulthood and adult hood, I still struggled with finding brands of clothing that fit well and felt good. Also realizing that I didn’t have much of a fashion sense. This made for my self confidence to be challenged, being that I was in hair school at this time with 300 -ish of the most fashionable women I had ever been around. ........................
Back to clothing choices for this amazing experience... so I have started my search for outfits. .....
I’m looking online and in my own closet for outfits that are :
