I think I must be a bit confused about the meaning of glamour.

To me when you say glamour photography my mind goes to the 1950's head shots of all the glamourous actresses and models. All made up, close up shots where you could count their eye lashes. Or maybe with the model reclined on a sofa in a glamourous pose. Wearing something like a fur or a dress that looked expensive/exotic. That hard lighting they used. Things like that.

Yet when I look at the glamour area, it's basically nude images. Am I confused? Or is my understanding of glamour wrong or too narrow. Or is the genre I'm describing called something else?

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

I don't know where the '50s-style glamor shots would be put today, but they would be lost on the Camel's glamour board. Although not really fashion because the emphasis is on the model rather than the clothes and (added) accessories, that would probably your best bet. Other forums on which you might consider such glamor photos are Portraits and possibly Commercial.
