I have a serious problem. Every male teacher or flat-chested female teacher I have tells me to stop moving my right arm when I play. My elbow moves back on a down-bow inside of pushing in. I have worked on it; I've improved greatly, but my arm still moves out.
With self-observation, I have come to realize that my problem stems from comfort issues. If I push my elbow in, I am hitting my right 40D sized chest. So, I am not sure my problem is fixable without a breast reduction!
But before I jump to that conclusion, I'd like to ask if other big-chested women have a problem similar to mine when it comes to the right arm movement. What can I do to develop an awesome bow arm?
Let me know.
