Letter : Marilyn's size

Sir: I am sorry to disappoint Dr David Ashton but Marilyn Monroe was not "voluptuous" (Letters, 20 December). He appears to have accepted the myth, as did The Independent in its feature on 16 December that Monroe was a size 16. Monroe had the gloriously thin figure of 35-22-35. Can the "circumferentially challenged" now stop hiding behind this myth?
