Another tip I forgot to add: Take some time out directly before the shoot and speak to your model about her best features and those she'd prefer to play down i.e. if you're working with a lady that has a bit of a tummy tell her to suck it in, stand tall, and push her bust out... she can indicate her readiness for the photo to be taken by counting down. i.e. one, two, three, suck in, shoot, and relax. Constantly assure your model that she's beautiful, and that she's working the camera well. Your model will thank you for it and the results will speak for themselves.

Looks like everything has been covered on this topic very well, but let me add a hint about posture that I ask of even my slimiest models.

I used to dance semi professionally and proper stance was critical in ballet, so here is my tip:
Stand tall as you can, and press your shoulders down while squeezing in your derriere. Try it. Your stomach has a natural slimming effect. You will also notice that by pressing you shoulders down that the neck will elongate which is is a highly sought-after attribute. How many good photos have you lost to a lost neck?
