    Wondering how far to spread the cut line for cup sizes larger than D. Do I keep adding 1/4″ for each cup size above C?

    I am a 36G with a 41″ high bust and 45″ full bust. Would it be correct to make a size 16 and follow the instructions for the FBA by spreading the cut line 1 1/2″?

    This is my first time sewing a top for myself and doing a FBA.

    I think it would be worth a try to spread it by 1 1/2, but I would definitely suggest making a muslin since the dart may become quite large, you may want to adjust it, etc. I hope it works out!
