I have seen and used different methods on this style.
One is where you surround the bed with a wall of softbox style cloth (can't remember the name, thin swimsuit material) and you light it from the sides shooting through.
(I'll insert a picture later taken with the above technique)

The other method I have used was when I'm shooting down I place the main light above model and to her right shooting down. I then place a fill light on her left side lower.
(I'll see if I have one I took from this technique)

It would be nice if the more experienced commented though!
