March 3, 2006, Newsletter Issue #37: Bust Measurements

Tip of the Week

The sizing of most commercial patterns is based on a B-cup bra. If you are larger busted, using your measurements may give you a pattern that is too big in the shoulders and back. In this case, it is better to choose a pattern based on your high bust measurement and alter the pattern to accommodate a larger bust. The high bust measurement is taken under the arms, but just above the bust.
