5 places to shop locally for your Juneau Boudoir Session
Nov 23, 2020 | By: Wild Iris Photography
Are you looking for the best Juneau lingerie boutique to shop for your upcoming boudoir session? Look no further, I've got you covered. Juneau is a small town, and while you won't find a Victoria's Secret or DSW here, you'll find a handful of charming local boutiques that are even better, and I guarantee you will fall in love with them like I have.
1. Bustin' Out Boutique
Find this lovely Juneau lingerie boutique in the heart of downtown, where they offer luxury, quality, and the greatest range of sizes for bra and underwear sets. This shop can be perused in person or online for great loungewear, sports bras, maternity wear, and other locally made goodies. Bonus - they provide custom fittings (yes, even if you've had a mastectomy).
I am currently adoring several of their "Wild Rose" pieces, which include a romantic lace bralette with shorts, a playful silk romper, and a lavish kimono style maxi robe. With ornate detailing, each set is fun, luxurious, and modern with a hint of vintage. Best of all - they are incredibly flattering for every shape and size.
This sheer and sultry Darling Robe is offered in two colors: wear the champagne if your boudoir session is bridal themed or the black to bring out the inner seductress in you. For a more modest vibe, slip on a flirty bodysuit underneath, or simply bare it all with this glamorous embroidered lace draped delicately over your skin.
Bustin' Out Boutique also provides the greatest variety of bra and pantie sets in town, offering bra band sizes 28-46 and cup sizes A-K. Some of my personal favorites for a boudoir session are the "Dionne Kiss Print" Bra & Brief, and the "Louisa Bracq Serie" Full Cup Bra & High Waisted Brief.
If you're looking for a more delicately feminine look, try mixing faint colors with intricate lacing with the subtle pink Milana Wireless Bra and the Clara Lace Cup Bra in soft sage. The Clara Lace Cup Bra is offered in several other enticing colors as well: Pink Champagne, Emerald & Honey, and Olive & Black. All are great options for a coquette boudoir shoot.
Among the wide variety of bras, panties, robes, and rompers, this downtown boutique also carries a large selection of sultry chemises. This dainty silk chemise with gold and black lace (which also comes in a Rose shade) along with the Stunning Gown in Sepia Rose would add an extra touch of elegance to any boudoir image. The best things about chemises is that they can be used again and again after your boudoir shoot is over any time you feel like lounging around the house like a queen.
Last but not least: the I Wear Love and My Superpower bodysuits are both sexy and beguiling undergarments created with Italian Velvet - a fabric that is so soft and is also perfect for a Winter session.
2. Freya Romance
The next stop on your list should be Freya Romance: along with their unique selection of seductive lingerie they also carry innovative sex toys, romance party supplies, and an entire section dedicated to products that promote healthy sexual relationships. Another bonus: you can shop from the comfort of your own home with their online shop.
Opt for a daring minimum coverage lingerie set or risqué merry widow: a striking corset with adjustable garters.
If corsets are your jam, try the Black Lace-Up Overbust Corset. To ensure a perfect fit, Freya Romance is able to special order this piece and other corsets all the way through size 6x.
When comfort and elegance are of utmost importance, the Foxer brand has your back - literally. Find a wide array of items from this kittenish line of goodies here in store. Freya carries many fun colors and patterns, but my favorite for boudoir sessions include the simple Black Lace Boxer and Chargray Lace Boxer.
Another local treasure trove is Shoefly, a festive and whimsical downtown shop filled with every diverse stiletto, boot, bootie, lace-up, and wedge option that any shoe obsessor would fantasize over. If you're local, chances are you get all your shoes from shoefly. If you're not, Shoefly is a must-see. Bonus: Shoefly is in the heart of downtown, just a few storefronts down from Bustin' Out Boutique (see #1).
These glittered beauties are ideal partners for any luxurious lingerie set, adding decadence to any photoshoot.
Can you say "legs for days"? The leopard print lace-up stiletto exudes sophistication.
Pro Photo Tip: Take your session outdoors! Outdoor boudoir is equal parts therapeutic, exhilarating, and fun.

4. The Studio
Locally owned by a 5th generation Alaskan, The Studio is a chic new clothing and accessory store located in the same shopping center (Airport Mini-Mall) as Freya Romance and also available to shop online. The Studio offers the coziest bralettes in multiple shades, exquisite jewelry options (some made by the owner, behind the counter while you're shopping), and the comfiest loose sweater selection you could dream of. The Studio is a must for those looking to complete their boudoir ensemble with a touch of trendy Southeast refinement. This is also one of the first boutiques I recommend to women of all ages for their portrait sessions.
The boho-style Flower Child Bralette is effortless, affordable, and comes in several lovely colors. Snatch up this darling intimate piece in: Ginger, Plum, Black, Olive, Light Teal, or Dark Teal. As they sell out quickly, new colors are always being added.
Oversized sweaters fit loosely over the body, allowing flirty lingerie to tease just beneath. The cinnamon hued Ella V-Neck Knit Sweater and bell-sleeved Emma Belle Sweater cover the skin with ease. I recommend these over a lacy bodysuit for those perfect cozy sweater sessions.
5. Resolute Boutique
Last but not least, this charming boutique is located in the centre of the city on Franklin Street and can also be shopped online. Owned by a true Alaskan, Resolute Boutique is a trend-setting shop offering versatile and casual luxury through top quality and eco-friendly fashion - something we can all get behind.
Indulge in more comfy sweater goodness with a revealing deep v-neck or this cool-knit Martini Tanner Sweater. Crochet bralettes, chunky sweaters, and snug jeans also line the shelves, making it near impossible to leave empty handed.
I am currently obsessing over the sterling silver Spiral Earrings handcrafted following Fair Trade principles by empowered artisans in India and Thailand. Also - somebody puh-lease bring this leopard Jericho fur coat to a session! I'm thinking black lingerie, black heels, sunglasses, and this leopard print coat for the ultimate boujee boudoir look.
