THE CURVY GIRL's GUIDE TO INTIMATE APPAREL | Life As Fine Art by Cate Scaglione | NYC AND NJ BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHER
Part 1: Wardrobe Inspiration for the Curvy Goddess & a Shopping Resource List
I've tried to make a lovely new habit of posting "Wardrobe Wednesdays" for all things about session styling and fashion. However, today I the *THE. MOST. AMAZING. CONSULTATION.* with a new client and I could barely contain my excitement to start planning her session. (This post is dedicated to YOU "Lady L.!")
She described that she is a curvy girl. And, while an intimate portrait session is never something she would have considered before, she liked that she had seen in an earlier blog post that I really do enjoy working with curvier ladies.
Why, you ask? Well, let's face it. Most of us are curvy ladies, including ME.
A small, considerably blessed part of the population is naturally thin; then there are my workout ladies who are fit as all heck, with excellent muscle tone and shape.
.... Sure, there are parts of us curvy gals who would love to be you for a day. But then again, acceptance of who we are and what we are blessed with, in whatever shape or form that takes, is the MOST beautiful thing EVER.
But from an artistic standpoint, as a photographer, I also love the aspect of form. Curvy ladies are gorgeous in so many ways. Their shapes are soft and rounded, the light and shadows can dance off them beautifully. When I ask them to bend a hip or push their bottom, we have lots of it to bend. That is true sensuality.
And so, on what would normally be a Wardrobe Wednesday, Lady L. inspired me to give it to you TODAY. Stay tuned for Part 2 on Wednesday, when I post how the various kinds of intimate apparel can flatter the various body types.
And THANK YOU LADY L. for putting us on this "learning CURVE" for the day.
P.S. - A special thanks to my Girl, the ever-talented great plains goddess, Christie Conyer, who assembles the best lingerie ensembles ever, for me and my other top boudoir photographer-members of the the Association of International Boudoir Photographers.
