full body rim lighting

Hi guys,

im interested in emulating the lighting in this photo

Particularly the rim lighting that covers the full body as im only able to cover the torso (at most) with 2 lights (10 inch reflectors) on either side of the subject. I presume this isnt enough?

Perhaps stripbox? each side + something behind...

Yep, you need lots of light: I would guess body-height stripboxes either side and slightly behind the model, a direct light behind her for the hair, and a softbox from above to the front for the face and upper body.

I would add to GinoE's thoughts on setup just a soft source from just left of camera axis as fill.
