At size 34 each 100 cc of implant will correspond to 1 cup size change. A 304 cc implant will take you up 3 cup sizes, you will go from an A to a D. If you only want a C then I recommend approximately a 200 cc implant. I recommend silicone gel implants because they feel and look more natural and retro-pectoral placement is more stable long term.

There are no fixed definitions of cup sizes. Many women have bras of three different cup sizes that all fit. Your idea of a C cup may not match that of your surgeon, or that of Nordstrom's and so forth. A cup on a 34 band is larger than a cup on a 32 band, and in turn smaller than the cup on a 36 band. I find that trying on implants in an excellent aid in choosing the size to be implanted. The implants look a bit larger sitting on the breast as compared to that same size in...
If you want to be a C cup it is important to be examined so that certain parameters can be assessed, including breast width, chest width and skin quality including elasticity. Also, it is important know whether you want to be a low, medium or full C. You need to seek a Board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation.
Unfortunately there is no absolutely accurate way to assess a given implant size to a specific cup size. Realistically speaking, accurate breast measurements obtained at your consultation will guide both you and your surgeon to implants that will fit your body.
