Vintage Boudoir Photography: Vintage Bombshells

This is not your vintage *style* boudoir photography. This is the real deal. Boudoir photography. Over the last few years, boudoir photography has really caught its stride, quickly becoming one of the more respected and pursued genres of photography. But the popularity of boudoir didn't pop up over night. In fact, it has a long history of classic tradition and unique style.

It was in the 1920s when boudoir art and photography really began to come into its own. During this decade, it was generally illegal to have nudity in photographs, but regardless, photographers like Albert Arthur Allen, a French artist, continued to create masterpieces. He focused mostly on women, especially larger women, who posed in romantic ways against ornate backdrops.

Fast-forward to the 1940s, and suddenly the boudoir focus was on pin-up girls. These decadent women were delightfully curvy, as popular standards deemed a lack of shape typically undesirable. It was a culture quite different from our more modern, and ridiculous, ideas of beauty. These pin-up girls wore stockings, corsets, men's ties and hats and were among the first to use various props in their unique "portraits."
