Letter: Flat and fashionable

Sir: Can Marion Hume ('When fashion is no excuse at all', 26 May) predict at what age Kate Moss will be old enough to model lingerie? After silicon implants perhaps? By insisting that only 'bosomy Amazonians' constitute the image of a grown-up woman, Ms Hume falls into the same fashion trap of which she is so critical.

There are enough women who, surrounded by images of 'Page 3 girls', are made to feel sufficiently inadequate to resort to surgery, without Ms Hume carping on about flat chests. I for one am pleased to see a woman portrayed as sexy without wearing a 36D.

Yours faithfully,
