Ok. It's taking ALL my confidence to write this asking your opinion. lol. I'm thinking of having boudoir photo done once I reach my goal weight. As a valentines prezzy for hubby. Has anyone else done this? And did the mind still think in pics that you were overweight? Or beautiful/ sexy?

If your hubby likes that kind of thing, then go for it!

Never after weight loss, but as a "wedding present" just before we got married. He had them made into a book, which is currently with him while he's deployed, haha. He cites it as his most favorite gift ever The photographer I used had a separate make-up guy and a wardrobe girl, and I felt absolutely stunning the entire session. The photographer also pumped me full of champagne throughout the session, so that may have helped a little!

And I think that's a fantastic reward for reaching your goal, but I also agree that maybe you should have them done now (and hey, you can always have more done later!) - I bet you'd be pleasantly surprised!

Do It!!!

Do it before goal! Do it every 20 lb loss! You'll feel awkward with the posing, but you'll love having the photo to surprise a special someone with. Or - just for your own confidence

Do it!! I would totally do it! I've tried to take sexy pictures of myself but it just doesn't really work. For example setting up a camera, setting the timer, then spending 10 seconds trying to get into a sexy position! I think with a photographer who knows their stuff it would be a great experience. You only live once!!

I've made up my mind and looking forward to doing this boudoir pic. I've actually browsed on Pinterest and found some tasteful poses etc that I think I could do. I've never done anything like this and I'm actually looking forward to it

I really like this idea, and I think I'm gonna steal it when I'm closer to my goal. I think it'll be really fun, and good for your confidence. It'll probably help with being able to see yourself at your new size too, catching your mind up with your body, you know?

Just a suggestion. If you're doing it for him to first ensure he would want this.

I would personally find this to be a waste of money and have no interest at all in receiving this as a gift. Thinking about my circle of guy friends I can only think of one that would really enjoy this. Maybe I have odd male friends, who knows.

Since Valentine's day is a long ways away you could easily find out if this would be appealing to him, or not.

If not, you could still get it done but it just would be a gift to yourself, not him.

You have odd male friends. I have quite a conservative circle of friends, and most men I know love tasteful, sexy boudoir pictures of their wives.

I agree doing it as much for yourself as him is important.

This - I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone more conservative than my husband and IT WAS HIS IDEA.

Besides the fact, you (and anyone else considering this!) should do it for you, not for your husband or anyone else! If he enjoys the photos, well, that's an added bonus

I would think most men would want sexy pictures of their wives. Mine would for sure, although he'd prefer to have me right in front of him in little to no clothing . . . .

That is great idea!! And you should do it for sure!! I used to do it for my ex-boyfriend many time (when i had a boyfriend). He loved that kind of stuff! And he actually liked when i just sent him sexy photos via smartphone simply during the day)) He said it was inspiring him to finish work sooner and come home to me;-)))

I did this! for our 10 yr wedding anniversary! I did pin-up pics tho. He loves them and so do I! In fact, I am thinking about having more done this year since I have re-lost 40 lbs

Highly recommend having some done!!
