The confusion between cup size and CCs can make choosing the size of your breast augmentation complicated. How do you know which measurement to use? And once you know, how do you decide what would look best? Use this information to help you demystify breast implant sizes and guide your decision.
Plastic surgeons get requests for specific measurements all the time. “I want a solid C cup.” “My friend had 375 CCs and looks great! I want those, too.” The issue with comparison here is that every body and every breast is unique. What looks great on your friend might not suit your body shape quite the same. When referencing pictures, try to find ones of women with similar body types as yours.
Not to mention, a C cup in one bra might not match the same size in another brand or style. Ditch your notions about numbers and focus on how you want to look.
Breast implants are measured in CCs, based on the volume of material in the implant itself.
When you have your breast augmentation consultation and you’re choosing a cup size for your breast implants, your plastic surgeon will have you “try on” sizers. These are implants you can place on your chest now that give you an idea of what that level of CCs might look like on your body. Keep an open mind when your plastic surgeon is suggesting sizes. Choose the best breast implants to help you achieve your goals, no matter the number attached to it.
