**Due to the global pandemic, I've started using mannequins rather than live models. Since their measurements are all quite small, I occasionally must make slight adjustments to better fill the bust, or lightly clip a garment so that it doesn't slip. It's recommended to follow the above measurements for the most accurate sizing. Hopefully, this will be temporary and I'll be back to all-size real-life models soon.
