Dressing for your Body Type : Tall Women

South Bend, Indiana Boudoir Photographers

I find that many women have a hard time figuring out what they should wear. They may have just had a hard time figuring out that they know they want to do a session and had the anxiety of the feature about their body they want to lessen in the images, but don’t always know where to start in what to wear. This series will help you choose based on your body. I will also be doing one based on your favorite features so stay tuned.

I photograph a lot of women that are taller than me. I am only 5’2″ so that doesn’t take much, but for those that want to make sure their length is flattered, this post is for you. In boudoir, Photographers spend a lot of time invested in learning poses to lengthen a woman’s figure in order to have the best possible outcome. Being a taller woman, you are already to cheat on this. I feel like taller women get away with wear just about anything, but to enhance your length, I would recommend a bra and panty set or a corset.

Bra/Panty Set – Wearing a bra/panty set is one of those outfits that most automatically think of when they are choosing outfits because its what we wear on a daily basis. What most people don’t know is that a bra/panty set can help to enhance your length in a way that allows for more skin to be seen. Photography is very 2D and the more skin you show, the more your length will be enhanced.

Corset – I love corsets, they are so flattering on so many body shapes, but I especially love them on taller women because it helps to accentuate the figure. Almost all of my goal in any session is to accentuate the hourglass that a woman naturally has. For a tall woman, she can have a hard time to show that off because her torso is longer. A corset is a woman’s cure-all gift in the form of lingerie.
