    One thing probably worth emphasizing is that some of the fatty tissue of the breast (the axillary tail) attaches further back on the ribcage than the pectoral muscle.

    could you show me an example Elwell? Google images are coming up kind of vague.

    I already mentioned the bigger nipples to you. Also wanted to add that the milkglands are also in that fat as are veins, since you're detailing anyways. Btw, add the armpits as those help define the chestmuscles.

    It seems that with your girls, the smallest area is around their waist. Most girls smallest area (the thinnest they are in diameter), however, is right underneath the breastcrease. The waist isn't the thinnest part. It seems like that, cos usually womenhips are rather wide rather sudden. The builds you have here, are from girls that are developing still, who have gotten boobs, but not yet the hips. I'm saying the last part, cos the bottom girls are supposed to be fuller 'natural' girls, while the top part is the fashion models ideal rather. So, watch your silhouettes.
