Alex Maternity Dresses on Etsy

When booking a boudoir shoot, maternity or otherwise, you have to consider the vibe you’re after. If it’s “hot mama,” then look out for this rhinestone bodysuit. Available from Etsy vendor Alex Maternity Dresses, this item is made of a mesh black fabric, the off-the-shoulder optional suit is covered in tiny crystals. Entirely sheer, this is a figure hugging option for those who really want to show off every curve. Just keep in mind, this is a one size only boudoir maternity lingerie garment so it might be a tight squeeze by the third trimester. But if you want something that’s unique, sparkly, and a little extra, check out this brand for sexy boudoir intimate options.


Agneshka Maternity on Etsy

If stepping into a bodysuit sounds next to impossible right now, go with a gorgeous sheer nighty instead from Agneshka Maternity on Etsy. This gold knit dress is boudoir shoot-ready with its spaghetti straps and deep v-cut neckline. Of course, you don’t have to go with gold. This gown also comes in silver and black as well. The dress is designed to hit at the knee but opens to a wide slit on the right leg. But take it from a customer for the real scoop on this scoop neck: “This mesh maternity dress is fabulous and exactly what I wanted. I can’t wait to photograph it on my next client,” writes one Etsy shopper. It’s just one of the many boudoir maternity items available from Agneshka Maternity.


Homespun Heart Props on Etsy

In boudoir photo shoots, less is more and that means that rather than a teddy or tiny nightgown, why not opt for what’s essentially a prop? Homespun Heart Props on Etsy has everything you need to amp up the drama in a boudoir maternity shoot. Take this cape. Jeweled and embellished with scallop detailing, this cape wraps around the neck and covers the breasts but little else. Made of polyester and sequins, it will be sure to make your sexy boudoir maternity shoot sparkle while the chiffon detail harkens back to 1920s flapper style. The wide neckline also allows the wearer to adjust it as they see necessary, be it off the shoulder or centered.



If you want to find affordable sexy maternity intimates for your boudoir photo shoot, head on over to Lukalula. This site was made for this project with loads of lace dresses with peekaboo cuts for bumps. Even better, it’s a size inclusive site with plus size and petite options. If you want to keep your top covered and make your bump the star of the sexy boudoir maternity photo shoot, then consider this lace dress, for example. Made of sheer white fabric, it has long sleeves and an embellished top that gives way to a maxi skirt that opens down the middle.


Sexy Mama Maternity

The name of this clothing brand says it all: Sexy Mama Maternity. This site is all about making pregnant people feel their best in clothing that’s as comfortable as it is empowering. Take, for instance, their boudoir maternity lingerie. This gown comes in 10 color options, from delicate white to flaming red. The pull on design makes it easy to access, but the detailing is the star of the show. Lace long sleeves connect to a wrap bodice that opens to reveal a bump between a long maxi-length skirt made of sheer fabric. Made extra long, the skirt has a significant train to add to the whimsy in a boudoir photo shoot.


Beste Bebe

If when you think boudoir maternity photo shoots images of Beyonce as a queen come to mind, then get something similar to her Grammy’s glam look with products that make mama’s sparkle from Beste Bebe. Beyonce didn’t wear this high drama tulle blouse, for instance, but we think she’d approve. Covered in sequins, the sheer gray fabric drapes over the shoulders and cascades to just below the bump; it’s a statement piece to be sure. Butterfly sleeves add some additional coverage and sparkle as well. But if you want to explore other unique boudoir maternity intimates, Beste Bebe has some, from bodysuits to sexy nightgowns.



It turns out Walmart has a large selection of sexy boudoir maternity intimates for your photo shoot. For example, consider this knee-length black lace maternity nightgown. A pullover design, it features short sleeves with intricate handkerchief trim. Detailed lace embellishments are woven throughout but special attention is paid to the hemline. If that doesn’t suit you, take a look at this Walmart sheer maxi dress that’s a steal for a $14.99. It ties with a lovely long lacy bow above a bump and features pretty lace detailing on the chest. Long sheer sleeves also compliment the design.


The Moms Zone

Want something a little out of the box for your sexy boudoir maternity intimates for your photo shoot? The Moms Zone has really unique garments. Exhibit A: this high necked bodysuit with fierce bell sleeves. Available in black and white, the stretch lace suit has a super hero feel to it, perfect for an empowering photo session. A zipper on the back helps the wearer access the garment which fits snuggly around the neck. But if that’s not your thing, The Mom Zone also has over-the-top options like this overflowing ruffle champagne robe that secures with a matching bow just above a bump.


Kindred Bravely

If you want to feel cute and comfortable, take a look at maternity favorite Kindred Bravely. They offer stylish maternity nightgowns that could easily make a great option for a boudoir maternity photo shoot without going full on sex kitten. This maternity nightgown, for instance, features a lovely lace design on top with a simple knee-length 95% Modal/ 5% spandex skirt below. Sweet and flirty, it’s an option you’ll wear long after you pose for your close up.



Just want some nice snaps of you in your undies while pregnant? Seraphine is the brand to check out. This maternity line offers lots of different pregnancy underwear options and not just the standard mauve nursing bras either. This navy panty and matching bra ($16 and $45 respectively, sold separately), for example, is a lovely choice that would make a boudoir shoot great. A simple robe with nothing else isn’t out of the question either and for that, Seraphine also has loads of options to choose from.



If you want an ethereal look for your photo shoot, consider DÔEN’s gauzy, sheer nightgowns. Made to fit pregnant women with their loose construction, their nightgowns evoke a different time, but still qualify as decidedly sexy. And they come in a variety of cuts and lengths, whether you want a short gown or a long one. The Lovisa nightgown is one example. Flutter sleeves top the dress with a smocked design studded with tiny rosettes along the neckline, giving way to a long flowing body made from soft organic cotton. Or you could opt for one of DÔEN’s body hugging slips in available in five color options.



Don’t forget the tried and trusted GAP maternity section either. While they might be your go-to for comfy loungewear, they also make nice maternity intimates such as this nightgown in leopard print. Or this long sleeve nighty that ties at the waist and includes buttons down the front that could be easily opened to showcase a bump during a boudoir shoot. If attitude is the most important thing you wear during a boudoir shoot, then all you need is one of these pieces and a smile to get the photos you want.
