Bustpoint distance

Wear your normal bra for this measure. Measure the distance between the two bustpoints, from center of the left breast to center of the right breast (usually this is from nipple to nipple- but not necessarily for all women). The bustpoints are at the tip (or apex) of each breast. Mark the level of the bustpoints with a piece of string or elastic band, you will need it for the next step.
