Like everyone else, I'm eagerly awaiting Christina Schmidt's next Torrid shoot, but in the meantime, I found several really pretty pictures of Torrid girls in some of the loveliest settings I've ever seen.

I wish it was Christina or Kelsey in the pictures (the models look a little stiff), and I've noticed that some of the newest items in the "Tops" and "Dreses" sections of the Torrid site are much prettier and more feminine than these outfits, but WOW, what lovely settings.

I also noticed a new catalogue picture of Lindsey at Torrid, in a lovely wedding dress - also photographed in a natural environment.


I don't think I've ever seen Torrid catalogue shots in natural settings before, so it's wonderful to see. The backdrop adds so much to the picture, and Lindsey looks really attractive, as if she's regained some of her beautiful curves.

<br>The locations are indeed splendid. Fans have often said that the only things limiting the effectiveness of Torrid's images--which are so resoundingly size-positive--are their plain studio backdrops. Situating full-figured young models in such lovely natural settings greatly augments the beauty of the photos. How one hopes to see Christina Schmidt in such an environment someday!

The pictures of Lindsey are especially attractive because not only is she standing in a pretty outdoor locale, but she is also modelling the most feminine attire of all--a wedding dresses (a first for Torrid).

It's wonderful to see that the company is offering reverse views of the images as well as front views--and, as is often the case, the reverse views are even more gorgeous.

Here is Lindsey's reverse-view image. Note how her thick, luxuriant tresses tumble down over her bare skin.<p><center><a href="http://www.torrid.com/torrid/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302024200&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442176530" target="_blank"><img src="http://judgmentofparis.com/lindsey/torrid03.jpg" border="0" alt="Click to view image source"></a></center></p>A closer view highlights the soft fullness of her back, and a hint of that most attractive of all facial features, the "slight rise" of a "slope toward the throat." Lindsey does appear to have regained some of her alluring weight, and it greatly enhances the beauty of her face, giving it a decadent richness.<p><center><a href="http://www.torrid.com/torrid/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302024200&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442176530" target="_blank"><img src="http://judgmentofparis.com/lindsey/torrid03a.jpg" border="0" alt="Click to view image source"></a></center></p>Incidentally, Torrid appears to have found another promising newcomer. We are not especially fond of the print on the top that this model is wearing, but the outfit does show off her appealingly soft, full arms. She also has comely facial features.<p><center><a href="http://www.torrid.com/torrid/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302024204&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442176059" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.judgmentofparis.com/torrid/torrid01.jpg" border="0" alt="Click to view image source"></a></center></p>Fans are still eagerly awaiting Christina's next L.A. shoot, but in the meantime, it's wonderful to see Torrid stepping out of the studio, and photographing its pretty models in the kind of lush natural locations that suit their beauty best.
