Semi-newbie knitter here! I just started knitting this January. I've knitted scarves, hats, a Clapotis and 2.5 socks so far, but never a garment. I was wondering if you guys could help me figure out what size to knit the Fifi. Just under my bust measures 38" and the fullest part of my bust measures 44". I wear a large C cup. What do you suggest? I don't think I can do bust darts just now.

I wish I could help, but this is my first garment as well. The people here in the SKC are all so helpful and nice, though, that I'm sure you'll have more advice than you know what to do with...LOL Good luck!! :)

I would say to go for the 41.5" garment since the material is stretchy. Even though your a C-cup, I think you can get away with not doing bust darts. I'm a DD and I've only started to use them myself. Just change to one needle size larger when you get to the bust section to give you a bit more room. That should work out for you. Good luck.
