Lot easier to see on the person as almost nobody is perfectly manequin size and shaped.

At first glance on there the chest plates look to be too low down on the body - the collar needs cutting down and the chest plates shifting upwards a couple of inches. However - since they're molded already - can you add to the top of them at all and shift the diamond up? If even that isn't an option I would heavily consider layering or trauma plating the collar to offset the fact that it is about twice as high as they usually are and will make the rest of the plates look like they're sitting too low.

Drawn out a rough positioning of where the plates tend to go. The red line is where the belts will likely sit - so try not to put plating lower than that.

thank you a lot for reply.
That's want to be a different set up, while the one you sketched is a classic one.
So, maybe the best option is remaking it to be similar to the classic one? :)

Nothing wrong with changing the positioning and shaping of plates. I tend to shift back to near classic with slight mods for our extra assets as a default when drawing up the base placement as its just easier. Main thing if you change around is to remain in the same area of space. if you lower the chest plates on the body and increase the collar size to gap fill - cut down the ab - don't just shift that down so that the armour is extra long and half under the belts. If you use a larger collar, give it something extra so the larger size looks part of the design such as it holding pauldrons (useful for offsetting larger helmets) or layer it, rather than just being a plain oversize collar. There are a lot of fem designs out there that have used different patterns - just work on finding a balance that isn't top or bottom heavy and work to your ladies frame rather than on a manequin unless they're the exact same size.

To the point of the larger collar, you could use an additional plate and layer it under the plate closer to the neck or add an extra plate to fill the space in.  Look at what other, approved, females have done for inspiration.  Post up some ideas you start to like so you can get feedback before you begin to spend time or money on it.  Talk to your Ruus'alor as well.

Enjoying the fact that you are making the chest armor look female by molding the cups. I do agree that the collar portion seems a little large. Can't wait to see more progress photos!
