      The band to full bust ratio will cause problems. I know a gal built about like the Monica character (can't believe I just remembered her) who has a cotehardie and she has to wear her usual bra and it looks just fine. Her cotehardie was fitted for her by a full-busted costuming Laurel, if there was anyway it could offer support through fitting it would have happened.

      Just try it on over different bras, get pictures from different angles, and see which looks the most like the paintings of the time you hope to match.

      Waspi-Square: hadn't heard that one before. But yeah, that's about what

      we're looking at. Not exactly a 28G, but within a couple of numbers and

      letters of that.



      My sister said she'd be willing to help me fit a cotte like the one at

      www.cottesimple. com . I have some nice material that might work well. It

      just might work. But I still wanted to also make a different style of dress

      too, which would require a corset of some kind so that I don't, um, go

      protruding out between the bodice lacings like play-dough being squeezed in

      a sack. I found a picture of a dress I really, really wanted to copy.



      Thanks for all the suggestions! Any and all are welcome, since there's not

      one solution that will work for everything.
