So I plan on making my Nurse Joy cosplay, hopefully soon once I actually set time aside to vigorously finish re-making my Yoko cosplay. The question I have is how to go about measuring. I know how to do measurements but the question I really have is:

Should I wear my push-up bra while doing my measurements?

They are really nice push-up bras from Victoria's Secret and really the only bras I wear, so of course I am going to wear one while cosplaying as Nurse Joy. They make my breasts look larger (yay!) so I'm assuming that my chest measurements would be different while wearing them. So should I just take my measurements with the bra on to be more accurate with them so it fits perfectly?

use the push up bra on when you're doing the measurement because you're using it too for your cosplay right? so, its better to measure it together.. smile User Image

Just to clarify: when measuring for your costume you will want to measure with what you will be wearing with the costume. So yes you will want to be wearing the type of bra you will be wearing with your cosplay, and if you are binding you should do measurements with the binder, and if you are measuring for pants you should wear the shoes you plan to wear. Etc. Otherwise the outfit might not fit as well 3nodding

I figured, it's just always good to make sure what I'm thinking in my head is actually correct. Thank you biggrin heart:

Short answer: Yes.

Long answer: Yes, indeed. (Wouldn't want to tailor it to your regular chest and then, come convention day, put it on with your push-up and it doesn't fit!)
