Now, this is a little tricky. You must measure the length of the ARMSCYE curve between point AF and point X at the top - not the length of the straight line connecting points AF and X, but the distance ALONG the curve. If you are careful, you can do this by pivoting the ruler several times. Alternatively, you could drape a small piece of string along the curve and then measure the length of the string when it is straightened out. Now, add 1 cm (2/5") to this (for bust sizes 94 cm to 107 cm or 37" to 42", add 1.25 cm or 1/2", while for bust sizes above this, add 1.5 cm or3/5"), locate the zero of the ruler at AF, and pivot the ruler until this length meets the horizontal line at AC. Mark the point at the intersection (point AG).
