Sexy Boudoir Shoot with my New Favorite: Soma Intimates


I don’t know about you, but to me the world of intimates has been changing so much the last couple years. Bralettes and a “less is more” style seem to be taking over, but this is a change I honestly haven’t been fully embracing. I work in a professional office, so having adequate support and coverage are important. I remember wearing a minimal coverage bralette to work once, and a female director could not stop looking at my chest during a meeting. And not in a good way. It’s because there wasn’t enough coverage with the bralette and my outline of my nipples were visible.  Of course I wasn’t trying to be sexy at work (just wearing a comfortable bralette), but it was not a good professional look. That said, some new trends simply aren’t practical for real life.

I’m so happy I discovered Soma Intimates. They have amazing quality bras, panties, and loungewear that are perfect for everyday modern women and real life. The brand values self-respect and understands that smart is sexy. The bras fit super well and are made with high-quality fabrics that do what they’re supposed to. Even better, they have a selection of gorgeous sexy pieces as well as tons of options for practical everyday wear. I’m excited to share with you my awesome experience getting fitted at my local Soma boutique, what I took home, and how those pieces translate to my everyday life.

In the era of online shopping, I will point out that coming into a store and getting fitted for a bra can make all the difference. Every woman’s body is different, so getting a good measurement and some expert advice can get you into the right bra. My experience getting fitted at the Soma Boutique could not have been better. Jana made me feel comfortable and asked the right questions to find out more about my lifestyle and what was important to me in my undergarments. She took my measurements, but honestly she knew my size before doing so. It can be hard to find such knowledgable and helpful sales staff in stores, so it’s definitely a pleasant surprise when you get that level of service. She put together the perfect curated assortment of different styles that would work with the various aspects of my life. All of the bras I tried on fit so well… it was hard to choose!

The first set I went with is a full coverage, unlined balconette bra and matching panties. This is the perfect set for a sexy date. I’m in love with the gorgeous trim details and beautiful fit of both the bra and panties. It makes me feel like a goddess! You can shop this set here and here.

The next set is a bralette that actually provides a good shape paired with the most flattering high-waisted thong. This is a great weekend bra and panty set when your out on the town with your friends and want a sexy bra and panty combo that emphasizes your natural shape. I am #obsessed with this retro fit high-waisted thong.  This set would also be great for spending a lazy Sunday morning at home with your babe. Shop the set here and here.

The next set is my favorite. It’s a versatile balconette bra and panty combo that can be easily taken from day to night. The cup is lined, so it’s great for work, but the sexy trim details make it perfect for an after work date night. It has a sophisticated effect and pretty color scheme. Shop this set here and here.

The next set is perfect for everyday life: heading to work, running errands, and everything in between. The T-shirt bra and cotton panty duo are probably what you’re going to grab for the most. This T-shirt bra is the perfect version of the classic. Its memory foam will conform perfectly to your shape. It also provides coverage and lift while remaining so comfortable you won’t think about it all day long. Pair it with a cute extra soft cotton panty and you are set for your day. Shop the set here and here.

Don’t forget about loungewear. I live in lounge wear at home, especially on weekends. Honestly, who doesn’t? This set is a really soft breathable cotton, perfect for these hot summer nights. I love the black and white simple floral print and the fit is both comfortable and a bit sexy too. Shop the set here and here.

Soma is my new go-to for intimates. It’s important to have a go-to a brand I can rely on for both quality and feel, and they do a great job of providing an amazing product. I also love how supportive Soma is of real women and their needs. I definitely recommend checking out a store soon. You might end up walking away with a whole new intimates wardrobe! If you don’t have a store near you, you can check out this online video from their website on how to measure yourself, so you can order online with ease.
