What She Chose: 240/235 cc moderate plus profile saline
What She Says: "And, while I don't want to get caught up on cup sizes, I didn't want to be a D cup... I know, I'm not the norm here. Anyone ever drop in bra sizes when their implants descended?"

What She Chose: 350 cc round moderate plus profile silicone

What She Chose: 400 cc round high profile silicone
What She Says: "In ten years, when it's time for an upgrade, I think I will go bigger like 475 or 500cc. For now, they look nearly perfect on my body..."

CovetingSmallPerkyBreasts
32 DD cup to C cup (implant revision)
What She Chose: 280 cc moderate profile tear-drop shaped silicone
What She Says: "I wanted to be SMALL and PERKY and Jennifer Aniston/Blake Lively-looking, with the ability to wear a see-through top (around my house) and not think twice... so far, so good."

Or Round...


GoBigTallGirl
36 B cup to 36 DD cup
Who She Chose: 616 cc round moderate profile silicone
