here's a board on my pinterest, that shows poses I like personally and that work well for a girl with my size and bodytype (I'm a 16, so bigger than in your OP, but if it works for a 16 it will work for a 12 too)

The client is 38 and 5'6".
ah okay. So we're really talking about a slightly older, chubby woman, wanting to shoot lingerie and nudes
this is a perfect angle for clients like that. it is always flattering, they (almost) always like it and it just generally works really well
you can use stuff as sheets and clothes to "cover up" strategic areas to create a more flattering result. but be careful with that, because you don't want it coming across as "the thing underneath is so gross and big that it needs to be covered up" either . so subtle!
way to do it correctly (right picture):
as someone else already suggested: having her lie down is usually flattering. but find the right angles. it can also look too heavy.
as far as flattering pictures of women lying down is concerned, I consider this man a genius

The individuals I am working with are looking for both clothed, lingerie and nude images so any suggestions or example images in your portfolios would be greatly appreciated!
I've always found a complimentary capture of a heavier model can be achieved by getting up high and shooting down as this forces the head up into a more streamlined position. Although I must add: at a recent makeover party the MUA wanted to interrupt this style as she believed it was forcing the gals to reveal to much decollete! I felt the ladies were happy with the results as they all ordered CDs!!
