A to C Cup Breast Augmentation - Photos

By VVartanian

Going from an A cup to a C cup is a popular transformation here on RealSelf. Which makes good sense considering the average breast size for an American woman is a 36 C. Check out some examples of what one can expect when A meets C:

formeonly830, who has "always wanted" more than an A cup says, "I wish they were bigger...but my hubby thinks they are big enough."
Belle33 says although she is in "love love love" with her C cups -- she also wonders if she selected the right size saying, "It's funny... and never thought I'd say this, but if I was to do this again, I would consider going slightly larger."
Jordanb1 who once played competitive softball and says it was, "almost a benefit to have a small chest." But now that her softball career has ended she "couldn't be happier" with her C cups and "I finally have the boobs I've always wanted!"
Although Serena75 said that she changed her mind "daily" when it came to selecting size, she is now "SO happy I don't have to wear padded bras, inserts and camis anymore..."
angienyc who wanted "larger breasts from the moment I realized that I was never going to have them" says that while she is "super happy" with her 36 C-- she does "sort of wish" she went for a D.
meesh07 who was "barely a 34 A" and refused to buy any bra that was smaller -- asked her surgeon for "a nice C cup, just enough to look proportionate" and now says it's the "best money she ever spent."
"I was certain that I wanted to have [breast augmentation] done after I nursed my first child and my breasts shrank.." says PrettyMommy30.  "At first I was a little freaked out [after surgery], and worried that they might be too big or that I'd never feel like they are part of me, but the worry has started to ebb and I'm getting excited for my new figure..." 
"I've always worn padded bras, like the Victoria's Secret Add-2-Cups Bra... but the cups are empty which makes it impossible to wear even a slightly low-cut shirt," says Schatzy who opted for extra high profile silicone implants (375 cc in the right and 350 in the left).
snappy69, who quit smoking to prep for "the girls" says, "I go up and down on the size part. Sometimes I think they are small, and sometimes I think they are big. Either way, they are way bigger than they used to be."
Adastra, who describes herself as "a very tall, slightly broad shouldered girl" says having smaller breasts negatively affected her self-esteem.  She says emphasized that she wanted a "natural look" during her during her pre-op consultation.
After having three children and breastfeeding -- the "small amount" of breast volume that cherryberry once had was, "even less and my nipples were sagging."   Post-op, she says she's "very happy" with her "wonderful new breasts".
BeachReady is now "loving her girls more every day" as heal and soften -- although she did have anxiety immediately post-op that her implants were "huge" and "busting out" of a 32 C bra.
Dallas 3572 says that, "Before surgery, I was COMPLETELY flatchested. I wore a 32A, and couldn't even fill that out. I am now a 34B/32C. Everyone told me that they wished they had gone bigger and that I would too, but honestly I am thrilled with my new size..."
esan (who chose 330 cc saline implants after doing volumes of research) says the post-op pain wasn't that bad and so far, she thinks they "look great".
"After three months, they [have] definitely dropped, softened and look more natural..." says BBoobies who once considered herself "flat as a pancake".  She says her 320 cc silicone implants were "definitely worth it" as she can "fill dresses now, show off cleavage [and] wear [swimsuits] without being self-conscious..."

After breast feeding my two children I was totally flat chested. Have gone from a 32a to a 32c/d I wish I had done it years ago. The best money I've every spent on myself. They are awesome!!!
Girls look great. Not fake, not too big!
I don't care if I have fake breast. I am the one who wears fuller bra now everyday. I was flat chest wearing tight shirt and don't have the boobs and I look like a guy especially if I go to the gym. Now I look great and look like a real woman. Awesome !
thats how i want to feel like a woman look good to :)
How much does the surgery usually run.... thinking of getting mine done too
How much does the surgery usually run? Thinking of getting mine done as well... after giving birth i went back to my dinky a cup.... interested in the surgery
I don't think any of these look fake! They look great!
They look fake because they are still in the healing process. If you notice they are all still in the healing process. They are swollen and high. Once they heal they will be natural looking. Wow, 21 years! That was saline? I hope mines will last so long. Good luck 2 u. I am proud of my decision. No one else has to get up and put on my bra in the morning but me!
Implants have a life-span of 10 years, though, I had mine for 21 years. Had them explanted 3 months ago so happy to be natural. Fake boobs feel well fake.
they look fake too. I honestly think that the before pics look better!
