But then for some you can just eyeball it and hope you can mathematically get it right.
Ugh, it's so annoyingly true. I'm trying to avoid using any clay and similar things that may weigh it down, even if it's just a little. I found vinyl stockings that may suffice, though, if I simply sew or paint a white line underneath the knee, then add the armor and such. Thanks for the help!
