The best way to tell is to try implant sizers on in a stretch bra and see if the resulting breast mound volume is consistent with your goals.

What does this mean, too large? Everyone has a different idea of what is proportional to their body.

You also give no mention of the size of your breasts to start with, which would affect what size implant you need to get to the size you want.
