A bust chart is a picture where characters in a work are lined up by breast size. A typical bust chart only includes the female characters of a work, lined up in profile by breast size, oftentimes displaying their measurements as well.
Bust charts are usually made to serve as a reference to help artists keep the proportions of a work's female characters consistent. However, since they can be very fanservicey they're also used as Bonus Material for fans. They are also common as Fan Art.
Important note: Most bust charts would violate our No Lewdness, No Prudishness policy. Please only image link bust charts where the characters are fully clothed.
