i took a fitting class from Cynthia Guffey (sp?) a couple of years ago. Best thing I ever did.

a couple of the things she suggested was to have some one measure you. You can look at sites on how to do it correctly. Then you pad the dress form to mimic all the spots on your body. I use shoulder pads and Batting. I simply pin it on the dress form in all the areas I need to. Looks very odd, but I get some of the best fitting clothes every if I do it every time.

Also ladies, most standard commercial patterns don't have the shoulders and arm holes correctly for broader people. i usually double check the shoulder drop on all patters before cutting them out. Yes even on those yummy quilted jackets.
