The model’s bust measurement is 35”. She is wearing the 40” size. When selecting color placement, consider your body proportions. The model has broad shoulders and narrow hips, for her placing the brighter color on the bottom and the darker color on the top helps to balance her proportions. For narrow shoulders, and broader hips, consider reversing the color positions.
