in consequence of the missive, L&T: What was considered a "correct" form?, penned by Line
Though Marianne's form was not as correct as Elinor's (I'm not sure what that means either!), Marianne's form was more striking because she had the advantage of height.
Marianne's height made her more striking than Elinor, even though Elinor had a more correct form.
Perhaps Elinor's figures was more along the classical lines and proportions, as you suggest. Marianne, if she's taller, may possibly also not have as correct a posture as Elinor too.
