I have question and by no means is it meant to be gross, but only professional.

I have done several shoots where girls don't have matching outfits, in particular lingerie. Lingerie would seem like an investment to have around for all those times for a quick pop up shoot where girl is new and does not have anything.

1Q: So is it bad or un-professional to reuse lingerie after its been worn (panties, bras, etc.)?

Of course it would be washed after a shoot before used again, that would be obvious.

2Q: So if washed is certain way washed or chemical used or is it standard washing or sent to dry cleaning?

I have meet some girls that have said they rather not where something that was not tagged. But am curious to know if you guys in the business of glamor, and lingerie if recycle your lingerie after a shoot or just give it away. Like to know the industry standard on that.

Lingerie should be owned by the models. You should not have it to share/reuse.

Some models will. Some models will not. Just ask.


Thanks for stopping in and having a look.

Never reuse! For me, it depends on who contacted who. If a model contacts me and requests a specific shoot with lingerie, I will ask that she brings whatever she intends to wear. If its me that contacted her for a shoot, and I have a specific lingerie style in mind, or color, or I am after a certain look, I will ask to see if by chance she already has these items and to please bring them along. If not, I will buy what I need for the shoot. After the shoot is completed, I will usually always give the model the lingerie I bought. It fits her, she is the only one wearing it, it makes her happy, and it gives her a nice incentive to shoot with me again. Just good business.

Better yet post sexy non nude picture with the model wearing the bra and panties on ebay and sell it back.

Good Lingerie is not cheap, don't give it away.

After it's worn, sell it on Ebay and recoup your cost for model fees!!

I haven't yet had the problem of non-matching outfits. The one simple reason for this is that I ALWAYS make sure to coordinate stuff like this.

If a model is bringing her own, I will make sure to know in advance what it is and correct any potential problems.
If wardrobe is my responsibility, there is of course no chance of it not matching.

I have a fairly large wardrobe and prop collection, but no lingerie.

For more "nontraditional" stuff, I will take whatever measures I think is required.
For example, I'm currently planning a shoot for next weekend (if the weather holds). For that, every piece of clothing will have to be custom made. So I set up a meeting with the model, to retake all measurements myself and go over fabrics and colors, to make sure i get what I need.

Models are responsible for their own wardrobe for the shoots. I get paid to take pictures, not dress other people.


I'm a photographer, not a photo editor. What you see are the virgin photos taken from the cameras, not what Photoshop can do. Only editing performed is adding a copyright watermark.
Real photography- it's the Forbidden Art.

I fully understand your point. But that strategy only works, if you don't care what they are wearing.

Call me a control freak, but I need to know things like that. And in some cases, I need to be able to control every tiny detail.

Another thing. You really need to fix it, so you get paid for all your work. Not just the part that involves holding a camera.

Not to hijack the thread, but what about 'thatrical quality costumes' I mean there are costume rental shops so I'm assuming this would be OK for a themed shoot... Anyone?

Costume do and should dry clean the clothes when they are brought back. I hope so at least. So in that case, they should be okay to use. But you'd still have to use your own lingerie!

I usually let the model keep lingerie once they've worn it and removed the tags. But there has been an occasion or 2 where I had to buy some rather expensive bikinis that I simply wasn't going to give away just because the model wore it for 20 mins. So I have washed a bikini before and re-used it in that rare circumstance. But 99% of the time I let the model keep that stuff. Besides, I think it looks tacky to shoot models in the same outfits repeatedly on shoots.
