I haven't received the best feedback on my first boudoir/lingerie shoot, do you think I should remove it from my portfolio? Or just put up one? Opinions greatly appreciated!

I would say just pick one.

The photos are very similar, and are too small to be appreciated.

Best,

I agree with Jorge. Pick one. My preference is the one on the right, top row. The lighting in these is pretty flat and unexciting, but it still shows another side of you, so I'd keep one.

+1. Multiple image composites are to small to show a model well.  Top right is most interesting.

If you really wish to include one from this set it should be the top right, but I would recommend removing them altogether.

The outfit is wrong, your not suited for Fredrick's of Hollywood type of lingerie, your look is too commercial. I think if u want to work with better photographers and get more work you should take the commercial route and this would work against you. Plus u have a pretty hair and eye color, the purple is totally wrong. Too many small pics. I like the head shot and the tub picture do more like those smile

I see the composite is still in your port so let me be blunt. Any real photographer knows that a good image is strong enough to stand on its own. Composites or series are weak attempts to group some images in hopes they make an impact. This almost always fails and your composite is a fail. So listen to the critique you got, remove it and pick one if you think it works. To me however all the images were boring.
