I have been trying to encourage as many women as possible to go bigger while they still can! I figured it would be fun to start a discussion on the topic. I am the first one to check in! I have a 36C/D but SO wish I went bigger. I call them my undercover boobs because they are so easy to cover up! :) Have a boobalicious day!

I was in the same position but I do think you have to take long term health and appearance into account. I had 275 cc with my first BA and right away knew it was to small. I waited almost 10 years and switched them out yesterday to a 435 cc HP silicone. I am in love with them! I could have gone up to the 500 cc but my ps said there is increased risk of problems and as much as 22% will need revision in 3 years if implant is too big for the body. I had to take a hard look at why I wanted bigger and what the trade off was. I have 4 kids (2 boys and 2 girls) and though large boobs seemed great I am trying to promote positive body image and I didn't want to embarrass my 14 year old son when his friends are over swimming! I also work in a male dominated profession and even though its 2014 boobs and lipstick still get notice and somehow they seem you're not as competent. Lastly I do not want any SAGGY boobs! Which is a risk for higher implants! I can't tell you how many sleepless nights I had going back and forth! In the end I love the 435's and am relieved I didn't cave to booby greed. AS the ps said to me-unhappy with too small is much easier to live with then unhappy with too big. Smart man!

Boy, I couldn't agree more. Thank you for posting this. I was so disappointed last month wishing I would've gone bigger until I started developing small stretch marks, and all I could think was, 'what if I would've gone bigger', I'd really have stretch marks! Everyone that knows I had mine done have said I chose the perfect size for my body, and when I look at what I had to start with, I know I made the right decision!!!!!

I think anyone who wishes they went bigger needs to live with them for awhile. I played up my smaller ones with bras for 10 years. When i did go bigger i was 10 years older and hopefully a little wiser. Booby greed is real but i think it needs to be balanced with good judgement!

I went with saline- 450cc and 475cc and I love the size, do wish I would have went a tad bit bigger maybe 500 and 525. My doctor did tell me that almost everyone wishes that they would have went bigger.

You are just like me! What did you decide? I am 5'10", 165lbs. I was thinking 500-550cc but now thinking 600cc just bc everyone wishes they went bigger. I am for sure going with high profile, gel implants. If you had the surgery, are you happy with the size? I am having my surgery this fri.

I just had my BA 3 days ago. I am 6'0, 165 #'s, started as a 34A, and the sports bra I am wearing right now is a 36D. I had Sientra textured implants, round, moderate profile 485cc's placed via the crease and under the muscle. I am obviously still swollen and have no idea what size I'll end up being, but I already know I'm going to wish I had gone larger. If you are tall, have broad shoulders like I do and a slightly larger frame, you can definitely carry in the 500+ range. I don't think I would've gone into the 600's, that's just me, but I do wish I would've maybe gone 550's. Oh well, at least I have boobs now! :) Really rely on your friends and the doctors opinion. I tried on silicone sizers two different times in the p.s. office with my friends and my husband in the room, and THANKFULLY my friends convinced me to go a bit larger (I was considering the 435's).

Scarlettchick- Our stats are very similar. If you're a B now, not sure how much breast tissue you're starting with, I think you could easily do 550, but I'm NOT a doctor. I started as a very small A, had 485 Sientra Silicone implants, moderate profile, placed infra-mammary and that took me to a solid 36D (I am 3 months post op). With our height, you 5'10 and me 6'0, I think if you go too much smaller than 500 your body will swallow them up, meaning you won't even tell you have boobs. Then again, that's just me.

Yes i do! Now that i have dropped i wish i would of gone bigger. The swelling is gone & they are soft (good thing) but that fullness at the top is what i liked, yes they looked fake but i liked that. Oh well. Over all i am happy.

Even though I am only 19 and don't plan on getting my BA until I'm 22 (I want silicone so I have no choice lol) I am still actively researching as much as possible. Today, I made rice sizers and tried them on for the first time. As of yet, I like the look of the 465cc sizer which would equate to about 500cc since I want to go under the muscle (about right?). However, I am terrified of not being happy with the size and wanting to go bigger when I get them done. Should I just plan on going for the bigger size (550cc unders)? I know I should wait for sure until I meet my PS for the consultation but still, it unnerves me to not have a plan--I'm that kind of person I guess... What should I do? I figured that this would be the best place to ask since this there are so many women who are happy with their results/know the ropes and would have a better idea of what's spinning though my head right now. Thanks!

It's so nice to see this, I'm many months away from my procedure but I've always wanted to be bigger (even though I've been a D or bigger for many years).

(In my above comment about vacillating: After closer measurement, I should revise the "the look I want might require 1500 cc" to "might require 1100+ cc")
  • Reply
I am vacillating between the fear of back pain from going too large, and the fear that the largest implant that will fit me will not be even close to where I would like! (I have reason to suspect that the look I want might require 1500 cc because of my wide chest; but I also have reason to suspect that 410 cc is all that would fit me, and that 410 would only take me to large B)

I am only 3 days post op and wishing I had gone bigger. The first day I was like ummmm, so where are they? I look almost the same. I was a 36 a/b before and got 500 & 475. I really hope they fluff bc I did not pay 7500 to look the same. I even went bigger than my original size of 450. I am on the curvy size so I definitely should of went to 550-650. Guess we will see.

How tall are you? I am 5;10" and thinking the same sizes 550-600cc.Have they got bigger since they dropped?

Hello. I'm 5'5. I don't think they've gotten bigger since they dropped. It's been five months since my surgery and they're not extremely noticeable to me.

Hi there! You look amazing, girl. How many cc's do you have now? My first BA was 10 years ago and brought me to a 34c with 375cc saline. My second one last year brought me to a small to mid 34D with 492cc. I was a 34aa before implants :-( Unfortunately, I had to have a revision due to CC. I think it was due to the fact that I had had re-occurring bouts of mastitis with my baby. I had my surgery 3 months after she was weaned and I think it was not completely eradicated. Anyway lol I had my revision done yesterday with 700cc silicone. It sounds huge but although I'm small boned, I have a deep thoracic cavity that seems to swallow up the implant. What size do you want to be?
