Now move your attention to the point B on the leftmost vertical line. Measure across half the BACK measurement plus 0.5 cm (1/5") and mark the point (point L). Note that the BACK measurement is NOT half the BUST measurement. If you think about it, the BUST is bigger in the front than the back! The BACK measurement is therefore significantly smaller than half the BUST measurement. It should be measured separately. However, I usually estimate it using the formula based on the BUST measurement, as follows : add or subtract 1 cm to 34.4 cm for each bust increment of 4 cm above or below 88 cm if you are using the metric system of measurements, or add or subtract 1/2" to 13-1/3" for each bust increment of 2" above or below 34".
