I called it the "equation of time" once, but that didn't go over very well with the bust in question.

5, that's more like "tip to base".

"The distance between apexes"
i'd vote for "apices".

as in, "what's your sign? i'm apices."

Good find. Interesting that the article is part technical aspects of bras and part normative statements on the display and carriage of mammary glands. The illusion of perkiness seems to get more attention than actual physical comfort. I don't know, maybe they go hand-in-hand to some extent - a claim that could not remotely be made for a similar discussion of girdles (much less corsets).

AMC's show Mad Men is fascinating partly just for its presentation of the foundation garments of 1960.
I saw an interview with one of the actresses where she said that her (stunning) ba-donk-a-donk hip swinging gait was produced by her torso being nearly immobilized by extremely architectural girdles and bras.
