What is the Bust Point?
The bust point, also known as the apex or bust apex, refers to the fullest part of the bust or the protrusion of the breasts on the front of the body. In garment fitting and pattern making, identifying the bust point is crucial for achieving proper fit and shaping in the bust area of a garment. It helps determine the placement of darts, seams, or shaping techniques to accommodate the curvature of the bust and provide comfort and support. The bust point is typically measured and marked on a pattern or garment to ensure accurate and customized fitting for different body shapes and sizes.
