in consequence of the missive, Proper height: "a running joke in JA's fiction", penned by Maisy
The wording and puctuation in this sentence doesn't make it clear which sister is the taller one; it seems as though it could be interpreted either way.
However, taking into consideration the information I posted re: the "running joke" about "proper height" in JA's ficiton, I am inclined to interpret the meaning like so: Even though Elinor's form is more correct because Elinor is tall(er?), Marianne has the more striking figure.
