I am a big fan of capturing all of life’s important moments, which is why I LOVE shooting maternity photoshoots and boudoir maternity photoshoots. Pregnancy is such a brief and beautiful season in a woman’s life and it deserves to be captured! I’ve talked before about what kind of lingerie photographs well, and keeps you comfy every other day, so today I thought I would expand on that and talk about a few places where you can buy cute maternity lingerie!
Not sure you want to have a maternity boudoir shoot? Read my post on why I think having a shoot is such a great idea!
There’s the old favorites of course – Target, H&M, But for extra special stuff I’ve tracked down some websites with gorgeous maternity-only lingerie. I’m a big believer that everything should be comfortable, but that comfortable doesn’t have mean frumpy!
This brand is all about comfy and cute – their tagline is “buttery soft!” That’s so important for expecting mom’s. They have tons of cute options, from polka dots to lace and a bunch of options without underwire. That way you don’t have wires digging in above your belly.
One of my favorite sets is the Paris Maternity Bra – it’s so cute and European with its blue and white stripes and matching boy shorts.
I also love their sleepwear options. Along with some adorable nightgown options that would photograph beautifully, they also have this great sleep top that says “Super Mom. Super Tired.” I love it!
Not only does this brand offer cute maternity lingerie, they also have an entire line dedicated to activewear for the expectant mom. How cool! That way you don’t have to stretch out all your everyday leggings. Don’t shy away from shooting activewear in a boudoir shoot either. Anything that shows off your personality will photograph fabulously!
I highlighted robes as a fabulous maternity option in my post on what to wear to your maternity shoot, and Belabumbum has a fabulous selection of comfy robes, with everything from classic comfort to extra-feminine
Hotmilk Collective is another brand that values comfort and style in one package. A cool feature on their website – a nursing bra fit quiz if you’re shopping for your very first maternity bra. I know I felt like shopping for maternity clothes was like learning how to get dressed all over again!
They have lace nursing bras with a flexible underwire. Lace! It wasn’t so long ago that you couldn’t get a nursing bra that wasn’t plain and beige. They also have Curvacious Designs with band sizes up to 42 and cup sizes up to M because every mom deserves to feel sexy and sophisticated!
What’s the cutest piece that you’ve found and where did you find it? Please leave a comment! I’m sure your fellow expecting moms will love the recommendations!
"Anne is an incredibly talented photographer, and her passion for capturing beautiful memories really shines through during her boudoir sessions. She really takes that time to make sure you're comfortable, and I honestly felt so glamorous and confident. This photo shoot was such an empowering thing to do! (and honestly...it was really fun to get all dolled up and pretend to be a supermodel for the day!) I highly recommend Anne and Bmore Boudoir."
"Working with Anne was absolutely amazing! Anne is very knowledgeable and gave wonderful advice. Even though Anne was a lot of fun and very laid back, she ensured she exuded professionalism always. I was so nervous to do a boudoir shoot and was lacking some serious confidence. Anne has a special way with her that made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and sexy! The pictures were beautiful and very tasteful. I cannot wait to work with Anne again!"
"Working with you was incredible!! You were so laid back, made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my skin. I didn't feel like I needed to cover up or hide at all. Your direction and energy was exactly what I needed to have a successful shoot. I chose YOU to do the session because I felt like you would put me at ease and we'd just have FUN during the shoot, and I was right ;) Having finished and leaving that day I felt empowered and absolutely gorgeous, like I could take on anything life threw at me haha! I was super excited to get the photos back and share them with my hunny, and he LOVED them! No complaints there <3"
