If you’ve every asked my advice on lingerie or read any of my lingerie blog posts, you know how much I loooooove body suits. I also love collaborating with fellow women entrepreneurs in Wisconsin, so when the opportunity arose to smash my these two passions together, I was on it like white on rice. I’ve attended two of Madalyn Joy Design’s fashion shows, and since she’s a Port Washington babe like me, I knew we had to work together. If you haven’t heard of her, go check out her website! Her designs are incredible, and she even won Milwaukee Fashion Week Designer of the Year. I’m sure we’ll see her lingerie designs gracing the pages of high end magazines and New York runway shows one day. In the meantime, I’m thrilled to collaborate near Milwaukee! We put together a kick ass team of ladies for this creative shoot, and the magic began.
I know you’re excited to see the photos, but first, I need to credit these incredible babes because they all helped put this shoot together.

“Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.” – Kiesza
Why Lingerie is so Vital in Boudoir Shoots
Good lingerie has the ability to instill confidence in any woman. If you put on a body suit, a bra and panty or a garter belt that you love, you suddenly carry yourself with all the confidence of the world. You’ll hold your head high, you’ll walk like a super model and you’ll look at yourself in the mirror like “daaaayum.” Don’t underestimate the power and magic of good lingerie. You might think you’re just a mom or a wife or a whatever, but once you put on killer lingerie, you’re a queen (try to keep this mentality even when you’re not wearing lingerie)! In the case of these bodysuits, you can wear them beyond the bedroom. Pair a bodysuit with jeans and a blazer and BAM! sexy outfit for a night out. Add a long skirt and you’re holiday party ready. Body suits are easy to mix and match with almost anything, which is another reason why I love them.
(did you notice Kelsey’s cute birthmark on her booty? Birthmarks make us special, so I always leave them in my photos!)
“Lingerie is not about seducing men, it’s about embracing womanhood.” – Dita von Teese.
I hope you love these photos as much as I do. From start to finish, I had a great time with these babes.
