Cross Breast

Measure from where the breast begins (in the cleavage area) to where it ends, towards the arm pit (usually from center wire across nipple to outer wire). Measure this distance across the fullest part of the breast, usually at the level of the nipple. If your breast is firm and perky you can measure while standing up. If your breast is large or droopy the measurement is more accurate while you are lying down. Wear your best non padded UNDERWIRE bra.
