Breast implants and cup size
Recommendations for 34D
Breast Implants for a D cup after pregnancy
If you want nipple symmetry a small periareolar lift on the lower side will be required but maybe not on the higher side.
A rough estimate is 200cc/cup size thus to go from A to D would require breast implants in the 350-400cc range

I doubt that a D cup would look natural on your frame in any setting, and a lift would probably be needed, and many surgeons would recommend a two stage procedure if large implants are used.
I would start with a second opinion. I would not recommend subglandular positioning. For 3 cup size increase you may need something in the 450 cc and up range.
All the best.
Lift with implants alone
These three things are considered to help give you the extra lift you require to make your breasts “perkier” without mastopexy:
1) During your breast augmentation, the breast implants will be placed directly under the breast tissue and above the chest wall muscle (in the sub-mammary position).
2) The best breast implants to use for a perkier result contain silicone gel that is more cohesive, such as the Allergan Inspira Truform 2 (formerly known as Soft-Touch gel). These implants are slightly firmer to maintain their shape better, but still retain their natural feel.
3) The shape of your breast implants should have more, rather than less, projection. Breast implants with a smaller base width will make your breasts project more forward from your chest wall and body, creating a more prominent contour. “Profile” is a synonym for projection, therefore look for high profile implants.
Generally speaking, larger breast implants can also help give a better lift, sometimes raising the position of the nipple by one or two centimetres.
Please see an experienced board certified plastic surgeon to find out whether you are a suitable candidate. Best of luck.
I would try not to focus on a cup size for your result, as this is wildly different from store to store and even between individuals. Instead try on a range of sizes your surgeon recommends (likely 400-500 ml for your height/bwd as a starting point) and see if one of them gives you the look and proportions you are going for.
