This part is slightly tricky. You will need the SHOULDER measurement. My recommendation is to measure this rather than estimate it - SHOULDER measurements vary a lot from one individual to another. If you must estimate it, then here is the rule : add or subtract 0.25 cm to 12.25 cm for 4 cm of bust increment above or below 88 cm in the metric system, or add or subtract 1/8" to 4-3/4" for each bust increment of 2" above or below 34" in the Imperial system. If you are using this method to determine the SHOULDER measurement, take a note of the result, you will need it again. Now, add 1 cm or 2/5" to the resulting SHOULDER measurement and note the value. You will need to hold this measurement in your mind during the following manipulation, and making a note of it will help. Now, slide the ruler so that the zero mark is next to point G, and pivot the ruler until the distance you have marked (SHOULDER + 1 cm or 2/5") intersects with the horizontal line that passes through H. Draw in the line and mark the interesection point (point I).
