The bust measurement is measured at it’s intended stretch.
As this is a negative ease jumper the measurements below are the intended measurements it will stretch to, not the measurements of the jumper itself when not worn.
Note that sizes M and L have the same bust measurement below due to stitchcount at a set place in the pattern, but that other aspects of the pattern make size M best fitted for approximately a 100cm bust.

NOTE ON AVAILABLE SIZES - if you want to knit this, or any of my patterns, in a larger size than I currently have published, please get in touch! The only reason it is not available in larger sizes is I couldn’t get testknitters for those sizes, and I don’t want anyone to pay for a pattern and knit a size thats not been tested. So if you would like to (test)knit this - or any of my patterns! - in a larger size than is currently available, drop me a message and I’ll send you the pattern for free!
