It’s skeletal. Even at a low body weight, an hourglass woman is still an hourglass.

Apparently around 13″ usually. Typical hourglass must be 10-11 inches to count.
Extreme hourglass is up to 13-14.
So what size was Marilyn Monroe actually? Luckily, many of her dresses, carefully preserved, are still around to measure off of. Further, one of her dress makers also chimed in with exact measurements he took. Those measurements were 5 ft. 5.5 inches tall; 35 inch bust; 22 inch waist (approximately 2-3 inches less than the average American woman in the 1950s and 12 inches less than average today); and 35 inch hips, with a bra size of 36D.
the difference is usually continuous in Waist-Hip, regardless of fat volume based on same genetic deposition across the figure
Make-up can do that, sure.
It’s all the lighting and angles, right?
