During your BYB experience

What do I need to bring with me to my experience?


You will need: - Comfy clothes. It's always good to arrive in comfy, loose fitting clothes as this makes your makeover so much more relaxing! This also means you will be able to remove your top for your photoshoot without messing up your hair and makeup. - A payment method and 2 forms of ID (should you wish to purchase any of our image packages). - A clean pair of heels/shoes. - A minimum of 3 different outfits. These could be a matching lingerie set, a babydoll, a corset, or a bodice. - Remember, boudoir doesn't have to be just underwear. At BYB we love to make your experience personal! You could also bring a partner's white shirt or work tie, a biker jacket, a veil for bridal boudoir, or any other personal items that fit in with your passions or interests. We also have a few items in the studio for you to use if you do not have your own, such as satin dressing gowns.
