There's nothing sexier than a confident woman who embraces her body.
Over the last couple of years, more and more brides-to-be have dared to strip down for pre-wedding boudoir photo sessions. The tasteful semi-nude or implied nude photos are often blown up or put into an album and gifted to the groom (or other bride) on the Big Day. But it's not only brides who are participating in this trend -- many already-married women get the photos taken for their partners' birthdays, their wedding anniversaries or simply to celebrate their wonderful bodies.
Over the weekend, we asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook to send us a snap from their own sexy boudoir shoots and to tell us why they decided to have the photos taken. Click through the slideshow below for 11 beautiful photos of women embracing their bodies.
