About The Boudoir
The Boudoir Dressing Service was first opened in Wood Green, North London – the concept of someone passionate about bringing the highest quality services to the TG community. It is owned and run by yours truly, Miss Jodie Lynn - I’m a real girl in her mid-thirties who is proud to work with transgendered people every day. I feel very fortunate to have a career that has given me more job satisfaction in a few years than I imagine most people experience in their entire working life.
When The Boudoir’s doors opened for the first time I did not have a single customer booked in. I sat at my brand new desk, looking at my beautiful new shop, waiting for the phone to ring. Eventually after two weeks I welcomed my first client, Gilly from Surrey. I was so nervous!! I couldn't help her with the buttons on her blouse because my hands were shaking so much. Even though so much has happened with The Boudoir since that first day, it seems like only yesterday that Gilly walked through my door. In the time since then, so many diverse and fascinating people have crossed the threshold of my dressing service to enjoy fabulous makeovers and a great range of outings. If I was ever to write a book, I am sure it would be nothing less than mind blowing for all those that read it!!
Since that first appointment, The Boudoir has grown from being a small and unknown address in deepest North London, to becoming one of the best and most well known services in the global tranny industry. So much so, that even very early on I knew I needed bigger premises. After a long and exhaustive search I finally found the ideal place, and in September 2004 The Boudoir moved to start a new chapter in a bigger and brighter loft-style apartment in Seven Sisters, North London. It was very emotional locking up the old Boudoir for the final time - I had so many memories of all the wonderful girls and events to take with me to the new studio - for a nostalgic blast from the past, I've preserved the original site's legendary Jodie Lynn - The Movie for posterity. It was however very much a step in the right direction, and the new premises has proved to be a big hit with the regular girls as well as new clients. The Boudoir is now the longest running independent dressing service in London... and long may it continue!!
PLEASE NOTE: In early March 2015 The Boudoir moved to a new fantastic location!! We are now based in a luxury apartment in Limehouse, East London. Watch this space for photographs and more details very soon. Our telephone number remains unchanged.
I don't know for certain why The Boudoir has been such a big success for such a long time. If I had to guess, I would say that it is because I try to make people feel respected, accepted and loved for the person that they truly are, whoever that is. The people that attend The Boudoir on a regular basis have also helped hugely in its success. The regular girls that attend a large number of the organised events are so very nice and welcoming to all those that come into the fold. If we can guarantee one thing at The Boudoir, it is that you will meet great people that are like-minded and may become very genuine friends.
The Boudoir Trophy Cabinet
I have been the proud recipient of 4 Gold Awards as voted for by the members of The Angels in their annual poll. I also had the honour of being inducted into their Hall of Fame in 2004. This recognition of the quality of service I have brought to the TG community is very much appreciated and I would like to thank everyone who voted for me and The Boudoir on each occasion. Together we have all come a long way, and I look forward to us all going a lot further!!
