I am not sure if there is much difference. Thank you for your help!

Breast implants size and shape
Thanks for submitting your picture. The measurements information that you gave is a little confusing. Being as it may, you appear in the picture to be an A cup. If you are planning to wear a 34 bra , than a 300cc will make you a 34 C . 325cc will make you slightly bigger. I would recommend a moderate profle round saline implants. They will give you the most natural looking breasts. In over 26 years, I have used almost exclusively saline implants on over 2000 patients and they are very happy with that choice. Always consult with board certified plastic surgeons and check thei before and after pictures to make sure thet you like the results.
Best of luck,
I believe that the best choice of implant would be the 325 cc.
Breast augmentation size
I encourage my patients to bring a friend or friends for a second or third opinion, and to bring a few different shirts.
I suggest as you look at implants you think about the relationship between the width of the breast and the width of the shoulders and hips. Two wide will make you look top heavy, too narrow will make the breasts look like torpedoes. I personally like to see the outer curve the breast have balance with the curve of the hip.
Once we hone in on the right diameter we then look at the projection of the breast which changes the cup size. At the correct diameter we can use a high moderate or low profile implant depending upon the patients goals.
Depending upon the starting situation, and the degree of droop we adjust accordingly.
Photographs of your goals are helpful, but they don't always tell the whole story. They don't always let you know a height and width of the entire patient.
300cc or 325cc
When it comes to deciding which implant size would be best for you there are many factors at play. You have included a significant amount of information, but a recommendation of this specificity can not be made without an in person examination and measurement. To answer your question though, there is VERY little difference between a 300 and 325cc implant. When I perform breast augmentation on my patients, I have sizers in multiple sizes available in the operating room. So if I were deciding between 300 and 325cc for you, I'd have both those sizers in the OR and I'd try both on you and decide which looked better before putting the final permanent implants in. I recommend that you see a board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to get more specific answers to your questions which can best be addressed after a thorough history and examination is performed.
Best of luck to you!
Difference in 325cc and 300cc Breast Implant Sizes
300 cc or 325 cc high profile implant will likely be appropriate for you.
That said however 300 or 325 cc high profile implants are often used in a patient with the appearance of your photograph and should be reasonable. Please see a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in breast surgery, and has excellent reputation and your community.
