Jesus, Jes, I really really like this. If there's anything I can add, it would be that nobody likes how they look in photos - at first. Photographs are the easiest way to take account of all of our physical "flaws" in one go; and those perceived flaws are different in all of us. It may take time, but the more you do it, the more you will come to look at your own body as a work of art. Like the abstract painting, you find new meaning and sensuality in the lines of your body; a photographer and I use the term loosely, anyone with a camera will do has captured you as a work of art, and you will come to appreciate your body as such. So many of my friends shy away from my camera because they say they don't like how they photograph, that it brings up their body issues.

Feeling sexy — if we define the word as "sexually attractive" to both ourselves and others — isn't always simple. When you're trying to feel sexy as a plus size woman or femme, for example, you can't usually go a day without seeing an advertisement for "how to lose the bum flab now" followed by a before and after picture. In such an image, the "before" human often appears sad and disheveled. The "after" rocks an ear-to-ear smile, and can fit into all the latest styles. She, we are meant to believe, is the core definition of sexy. As for the fatties, they are nothing more than tragic accumulations of rolls who will never, ever get laid. Even when some folks begin to embrace body positive and especially fat positive rhetoric, it's often easier for them to feel beautiful over sexy.
Do you want your plus size boudoir photography poses to be easy for any model? No matter what body type you are shooting, your models should feel stress-free and comfortable in their own skin. That is why it is necessary to practice photographing different body types in order not to feel embarrassed. Your model can either sit or lay down. You will need to rise above your model and take an overhead shot.
But for those of you who have gone through the process of literally contorting your back in the name of landing a sexy pose, you know how hard it is to find the right angle. Touch yourself with kindness every day. Light candles and play Lizzo and wear lingerie and dance for yourself in the mirror.
