hehe . . . actually i realised perhaps i should clarify . . . it's more of a comparative rule of thumb, which requires comparing different photos of the same model in various outfits. i don't know how this model normally photographs, but i was operating under the assumption that clothing models for online retailers like NM, Saks, etc. generally look rather slimmer. thus i was assuming the aforementioned illusion of stoutness to be a result of the clothing rather than the model's figure . . .LOL @ stout (lvpiggy)! I love this model's figure, def not stout, she looks sexy and elegant but then I LOVE a woman with curves and oh she's got boobs too! Now her pose may not be the best! Yep Jeneen, very fun and elegant.
