    Default Stupid Question?

    Why are the photoshoot charges for bikini and lingerie different when there's the same amount of cloth covering the same parts of the body??

    bikini is consider swimsuit, you able to see girls wearing them in public,

    lingerie is consider undies, only showing to someone very special......

    Wonder if you ask your gf/wife why she wear bikini to beach when she can wear her lingerie instead

    Haha.. I know the question is stupid.. but technically a 3-piece bikini is equivalent to a bra and panty, no? If the sheer amount of fabric is the same... from a male species point of view, I dun see what is the difference wo.... maybe I am just dumb??

    just like if the girl is not photographer, she won't understand why

    men need to bring DSLR out instead of P&S
