In the words of the photographer: "This first paint and shoot explores the issue of body image and beauty standards.
While an "art model" or "alternative model" does not have to meet a particular and rigid height/weight/measurement standard in the way that a fashion model does, this in no way lessens the societal pressure for her as a woman to conform to an "ideal" standard of beauty and body shape.
Here, Conundra's painted corset, authentic to a vintage 1810 design, and containing about 8 hours of airbrushing and hand painting work by Lisa of Battledress), shows what her body "should" look like according to one set of standards.
Her true body shape is blacked out beyond the bounds of the corset, yet visible to show the contrast between the "ideal" and her natural, real, and very beautiful figure."
For an idea of the kind of contrast in dimensions you're looking at, natural waist is about 28.5".
