Really? You don't think they bowed to the pressure?
No. The initial model was too drastic and looked more like a prostitute than someone that fit their world and someone that's supposed to be your companion (like Alyx.) So they changed her hair and her clothing a bit. The internet flipped out. They bitched that she was less sexy and thought her breasts were smaller.
Levine, who didn't want her to just be a sex object (which makes no sense given the initial design) and was creeped out by this response as a whole, decided he didn't want to please that crowd at all and buttoned her up. Less of a chance of creepy weird Elizabeth fanfic.
