SIR, - Re the letter headlined "disgusting" (Herts Advertiser, April 17). Why is there always one! The picture of the naked ladies (April 3) was amazing on so many levels.

a) It was technically a very good photo, framed and posed beautifully.

b) The ladies were incredibly brave to pose.

c) The subject matter goes to the heart of one of the biggest problems facing women and young girls - that of having a positive body image.

The picture was of the female form in all shapes and sizes. Real women! What does it say about someone for them to find that "disgusting". Would Ms Greenwood look at a Rubens or a Renoir and say the same thing or is that OK because it's "art"?

All I can say is if the lady sees enough "in the daily newspapers, TV etc", then I can only suggest that she stops reading the Sun.

SARAH JACOB,

Portland Street, St Albans.
