Bust size question

I am getting set to purchase yarn to make this gorgeous pattern (not the recommended yarn the model is wearing). I am confused by the bust measurement. The "Finished Sizes" in the instructions do not correspond with the schematic.

For example, the Finished Size 32: the schematic lists 18.5" as the width of the pullover. The difference between 32" and 37" is 5" in the circumference.

Which is correct - the FInished Sizes listed or the schematic?

Help please and thanks!
