Place the tape on "top" of the shoulders. Measure from the edge of the left shoulder across to the prominent neck bone located at the center of the back of the neck continuing to the edge of the right shoulder.


Wrap the tape around the fullest part of your bust and center the tape on your back so it's levelled all the way around.

Wrap the tape around your ribcage right below your bust. Make sure the tape is levelled all the way around.
