Hello Beautiful models and fans of CMR. It’s Angelita Aronce Sorensen here with my weekly blog. I had an aspiring model contact me about lingerie shoots. She asked my advice on what she should wear since she was also a busty young woman. My answer was simply this; wear whatever makes you feel beautiful whether it is showing lots of skin or something more conservative. Accentuate your favorite features such as your legs, bust line, etc. Then she asked me how I got through my first lingerie shoot.
Ok, I had to stop and think about it since it’s been a while since my “first” lingerie shoot. I wanted to wear something fun and sexy but not too sexy so I modeled a vintage nightgown that belonged to my grandmother. I absolutely love this two-piece nightgown and have modeled it a couple of times since then. I was really nervous; in fact if you were to see the first couple of images, I looked like a deer in headlights.
All these emotions came flooding when I got in front of the camera and I was second guessing myself. I thought to myself, do I look fat? Can I look sexy without looking like I’m trying to hard? Maybe I look ridiculous; maybe I shouldn’t be doing this. There was so much going through my mind. I was so scared, you would think I was modeling nude but that wasn’t the case. I just had to breathe and relax.
I wasn’t sure how to pose but luckily the photographer was experienced with lingerie models and gave me good directions. He played music that was fun to listen to and I was able to relax and we took so many photos. It was a lot of fun and I found that I really enjoy these types of photo shoots. Every woman likes to feel beautiful and sexy and these images really made me feel exactly that.
After I got comfortable with the idea of lingerie shoots I decided to look for something fun and new. I’ve always liked the lingerie with feathers so I went looking for a baby doll garment. My daddy used to have a little doll with the type of lingerie I always wanted to wear so I went out and found what I was looking for at Fredericks of Hollywood. It was super sexy and I even found matching slippers.
Wearing something that you’re comfortable in, whether it’s a beautiful bra and panty set or some other type of sexy lingerie. If it’s your first time modeling lingerie, be sure to choose a photographer who is experienced in photographing lingerie models. He/She can give direction as far as pose suggestions, also go online, type in lingerie models or anything like that into the search engine and there will be tons of images that you can look at for inspiration.
I believe every model should have some lingerie images in their portfolio to show more diversity in their modeling style. In my personal opinion, don’t attempt lingerie modeling until you’re comfortable in your basic fashion modeling. Once you get comfortable modeling in lingerie, you’ll probably want to do more. Just have fun!
As always, remember, take control of your future, even if it means smashing through preconceived boundaries in this industry. Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you can’t go after your dreams and until next week, stay positive!
