    Instead of trying to photoshop this, I would suggest a re-shoot. there are much more flattering lights and angles you could shoot with. Plus this image is out of focus.. her face is waay blurry.

    +1 on the re-shoot.
    It will be to tough to do much to improve the photo as it is shot. Out of focus, plus having the background being half door, half wall will make any adjustments pretty hard to do.
    Hang up a solid color sheet and try again with some more flattering poses.

    Here is a link to bunch of examples of poses, not aimed at plus sizes but you can take a look and see there are some that draw focus to one area of the body over others.

    That has gotta be the first time I was linked to a link
    PS: I think she would be better off w/ clothes on... Some people just aren't meant to be photographed half naked, or naked. This isnt an attack on her personally, but just saying.

    Photoshop is not the answer here.

    Re-shooting with a better background, better lighting, and better posing is the key.

    Here are some links you can look at for posing help/ideas: posing overweight people - Bing

    my advice would be to look at the works of great artists who have done nudes in oils. If you look how they pose them it will give you some ideas.
    e.g.,: Titian Venus:

    Agreed. I'd suggest adding Rubens to the list of artists, and to not limit yourself to artists that worked in oils, though Renaissance periods works are a great starting point and are dominated by oils.
