I was thinking of putting together some lingerie to have for models wardrobes. Is this normally something that a photographer can provide?

Also, looking at some of the oufits that models wear on the pictures posted, where are some of the best places to buy this stuff? I know victorias secret doesn't carry a lot of the sexier stuff and beside that, they are overpriced. I guess Fredericks would be one option. Are there any others that people can recommend?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am not yet into the business but here is my plan

-A few essentials...
*lots of jewelry/sunglasses (maybe not earrings)
*gloves (long elbow length ones)
*stockings
*corsets, bras,teddys,ect. (I would stay away from underwear)
*shear tanks
* if you can black stilletos/heels.
* maybe some sexy costumes

I know there is more, I have a list, but that's what pops off my head.

I know a few photogs that have their own clothing and accessories but not lingerie. In fact, I think that's kinda gross.

Yeah i totally agree with that statement. Accessories are a good thing to have but lingerie is a very personal thing and i doubt ant model would want to wear some that was provided, despite how many times it had been washed.

Leave lingerie to the models.

I agree lingerie is something I would not invest a lot of money in. Just like tops, no underwear and that's too why I suggested no earrings. Even washed and sanitized still may give many the heeby-geebys.

But as far as stores I would say VS is a good start. They are a lil overpriced but they always have a coupon floatin around and with a sale you can rack up some good deals. Just pick up things here and there, best to try to stick to things where either big/small woman can wear. Or send your wife/girlfriend out with some cash. She'll know more what to buy and woman love to spend money even if it's not on them :)

Thanks all, that makes perfect sense to me. I just always see photos where the whole outfit looks like it was designed to match, including underwear, and it made me think. I guess I can assume in these cases the model must bring her own clothes.

If you are in the market... there is a lot of inventory that people are trying to move to make ends meet... check out MM and eBay....

I disagree with the previous posters. I always bring a suitcase full of underwear, lingerie, outfits, heels, etc; whatever I need for what I'm shooting that day.

I always make sure I have something for the model to wear (in the case that he/she doesn't, or I don't like what they brought) because I can't go through their entire wardrobe before the shoot, and my experience has taught me that I cannot rely on models to bring the type of clothing I want to use for a shoot on any given day. And I'm not about to waste my time and money because a model didn't have the right clothes for what I wanted to shoot.

Sanitation is never a problem because I always let them keep the underwear once they've worn it. Something like pants or a skirt that I know I'll probably use again, I'll wash and hold onto it. Everything else I usually let the model keep. I don't give my shoes away as those are too expensive to replace every shoot.

This is how I do it... it works for me and has saved me many a shoots where a model showed up without the right type of clothes.

Ditto what Ledrak says. Panties/g-strings the models keep.

IMO, it's just not a great idea for you do have clothing on hand for your clients/models. There is a local photographer that does this. His shots look damn near exactly the same between clients for a few reasons (no new lighting setups, same backdrops) - but one of 'em is the girls are wearing the same clothes.

I don't think it's horrible to do this, but if you are going to, get rid of your collection every now and then - start over. It's very easy to fall into that rut of "this works perfect so I'll do it over and over again".

When I do shoots for models and I purchase the clothing I let them have it. Tights, unders, lingerie stuff like that. I do not want to have all my photos look the same. Many times I try to have model supply the clothing though.
