Breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters or CC. Hence, bra size cannot determine your implant size. You can avail of “clinic sizers” during a session with your plastic surgeon and get an understanding of your current volume in CC and the volume of various implants. Additionally, you can conduct at-home tests like the “rice-test” or “water-test” by filling or pantyhose with uncooked rice in accordance with instructions or insert water filled plastic baggies under your bra.

Your lifestyle is also a determining factor for your breast size. You have to consider the physical stress and general style of clothing that are a part of your daily routine. You must choose a size that enhances your appearance and volume without weighing down on your activities.

Consult a board-certified and experienced surgeon and bring along a trusted friend or family member through the process.
