Analysing the secrets of success of the finished corset from the last article, plus: how can gussets and shoulder straps be used to support a large bust?

I'm hoping for a number 3 article about cupped corsets as there isn't one online yet...
I actually believe that with MARK GARBARCZYK's article on bra's you can make a cup corset.
Once you have the cup size and fit all done, the rest is basically a classic corset.
We should ask Mark to write an article about cup corset, his knowledge of bra making should be a great advantage!
If her best fitting bra is not against her sternum, she is probably not wearing the right size bra. I had that problem forever, and had no idea that the underwire could or should fit against my sternum. I have similar measurements to the ones you described for her in the previous article (for me 43" bust, w/ 33" underbust and 32" waist), and I wear a UK 34HH (which is apparently about a Dx9), or sometimes a 32J. There are a number of websites (I've purchased from HerRoom, BreakoutBras, and BareNecessities ) that sell bras in upper-range sizes like that, and most major cities in the US have at least one specialty store (such as Intimacy). I'm not sure about France, but most of the bra-makers in that size range seem to be from France and Britain.
