Lingerie Model - Critique

Your thoughts please; the good, bad, and ugly.

My primary interests are basically as follows:
First, learning if this photo is any good.
Second, critiquing the existing post-processing work.
Lastly, learning, what post-processing work would suit & strengthen this image to its greatest potential.

Photographed with:
Single source through 20"x30" foam core cookie.

This is a lovely near perfect pose. I love her hand laying on her chest but be careful of what we call "broken wrists". See how it makes such a hard right angle. Just have her flatten it out just a little. (That's a picky thing I know but see the difference.) I love the speculars on her bracelet, you could have also put about a 1/2 stop more on her face if you wanted. The candles in the
