Now go back to the origin point O, and the line from O to B, and mark off a new distance from O, equivalent to the NAPE to WAIST measurement (point E). The NAPE to WAIST measurement can be estimated from the BUST by adding or subtracting 0.4 cm to 41 cm for each 4 cm of bust above or below 88 cm in the metric system, or by adding or subtracting 1/5" to 15-4/5" for each 2" of bust above or below 34". Hence for a 40" bust, you will add 3/5" and arrive at 16-2/5". For a 100 cm bust, you will add 1.2 cm to 41 cm and arrive at 42.2 cm.
