34 inch bust

anonymous asked:

Hi sooo I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but! I really want to buy the TBS crop tee. I'm 34 inch bust DD, 32 in waist. Would the medium large fit or just not gonna happen lol? I accept my fate if not.

I’m about a 30in waist and the crop top is definitely a little snug. Unfortunately, our manufacturer just offers those two sizes :(

Teeny tiny ivory lace dress worn by Hepburn for the final scene in her first proper film, Roman Holiday, in 1952.
The waist is 24 inches, the bust 34 inches. But the dress was probably smaller when it was worn by Hepburn, a fact that gives the first insight into her character.

Audrey would have all her costumes and gowns made with a generous seam allowance so that, when she gave the clothes away, which she invariably did, the new owner could let out the seams and fit them perfectly. Audrey was so generous. She liked to give things away rather than let them languish in a wardrobe.

Audrey went on to win a Best Actress Oscar for Roman Holiday  in 1954 and wore the same lace gown designed by Edith Head, with some alterations done by her new friend the couturier Hubert de Givenchy, to collect her award.

And when her wedding to Lord James Hanson was cancelled she gave away her simple wedding gown to a poor peasant girl in Italy.

Store Mannequins Versus Real Women: By The Numbers

According to The Guardian, the “average” mannequin measures around six feet tall, with a 34-inch bust, 24-inch waist, and 34-inch hips, and extremely narrow calves, ankles, and wrists. Needless to say, it’s a far cry from the average American woman’s size 14 build (which, according to many mass retailers like J.Crew, is equivalent to a 40.5-inch bust, 33-inch waist, and 43-inch hips).
