So I have very small AA boobs and just got implated 425cc silicone high profile. I know I still have a few weeks of healing along with the swelling to go down but I was curious around what cup size I will be. My chest actually looks smaller than I thought it was going to be so Im wondering with starting out extremly small, Im about 5'5 and 135lbs that I may not have gone big enough. Im hoping to be a nice C cup...what do you think? .

Implant Selection Process
In order to make an accurate size recommendation, I would need to assess your chest wall and breast mound measurements and characteristics. Unfortunately, there is not a general rule of thumb or objective criteria to implant selection.
Your plastic surgeon will perform several measurements of your chest wall and breast anatomy and determine a range of implants that both fit your chest wall and reach your desired goals.
The next step is to try on this range of implants in the office with your doctor. The key to this success is showing your surgeon the body proportion you desire with a bra sizer and allowing your surgeon to guide you to the right implant. It will be much easier to communicate in implant cc's than cup size when determining the appropriate implant for you.
I wish you a safe recovery and fantastic result.
Cup size questions
Cup size will vary with each manufacturer. Go for a fitting and wear a bra that you feel comfortable in without paying much attention to cup size.

Breast Implants and Bra size
Try on some bras and see which fit. I think you will be happy with which bras you fill with that size implant. It may take some time for your skin to stretch to show the size your implants. The size you chose is very popular in my practice. Patients are extremely happy with it.
Bra size after breast augmentation
The best way to determine cup size is to try on some bras. At a couple weeks after you may still have some swelling. So, it may not be a good idea to purchase too many bras at once. I tell my patients to wait at least 1 month before going bra shopping.
Thanks for the question! Happy shopping!

Sounds like you are ready to go bra shopping!! Volume has little correlation with cup size. Have fun.
Trying to Guess my Cup Size?
Without a photo it would not make sense to guess a breast size. Your idea of a AA or a C may not match mine, or Nordstroms', or Victoria's Secret's.
As a rule, for a patient with a 36 band, there will be about a cup size increase for every 200 cc of implant.
Thanks for your question, and best wishes. With passing time, as your pectoral muscles relax to accommodate the new implants the appearance may seem larger than it does now.
