Remember the moving points principle? If the center is in her breasts, this the main moving point, the focus, the rest of the body is to follow! Breasts go first in every movement, what is the next to follow?
Break this move into part two. In our case she was yelling (half-deaf) and the actor had to take a big breath (women do it in the cheast, men in the stomach -- Ben had to learn how to breath as a woman). So, the breast moves (almost as if a separate part of your body = prop), it grows, it take the body, because it is so powerful! The head and the scream are to follow -- this the breast TALKING!

LADY BRACKNELL. Pardon me, you are not engaged to any one. When you do become engaged to some one, I, or your father, should his health permit him, will inform you of the fact. An engagement should come on a young girl as a surprise, pleasant or unpleasant, as the case may be. It is hardly a matter that she could be allowed to arrange for herself . . . And now I have a few questions to put to you, Mr. Worthing. While I am making these inquiries, you, Gwendolen, will wait for me below in the carriage.
