The image of Marilyn Monroe still excites the minds of the audience.
She was a sex symbol of the 20th century, and her body was the envy of women.
However, many still doubt whether the actress would fit into modern beauty standards. You can understand this by finding out what size Monroe actually wore.
Marilyn Monroe’s career was not very long, because the actress passed away at the age of only 36 years.
However, after it there were films, hundreds of photographs of reporters and amateur shots. All these materials are still being carefully studied to find the answer to the question that worries many – what size did the main diva of Hollywood wear?
In publications, you can often see that it was the 14th size, which in the modern dimensional grid roughly corresponds to the size 52-54 or L / XL. The actress Elizabeth Hurley even called Monroe “fat” after she saw her dresses at the exhibition.
But in fact, the confusion arose due to the fact that the dimensional grids adopted in the 1950s are very different from modern ones. So, for example, the modern model “zero” size corresponds to size 10 in the old standard.
That is, it turns out that Monroe wore clothes in size 42-44. In addition, Marilyn’s parameters, recorded in the Blue Book modeling agency, were preserved, with which the future star signed a contract at the age of 19.
Monroe had almost ideal hourglass parameters, with a height of 166 cm and a weight of about 53 kg. By the way, in the agency, the administrator noted that the size of the young Monroe was 12 at all.
Of course, with age, the weight of the actress fluctuated a little. But, for example, the same weight appears in the pathologist’s report – 53 kg.
Today, many researchers of Monroe’s life agree that the actress rather corresponded to the modern size 8-10, that is, M.
Not skinny, but far from plus size!
