Implants early post-op
You look pretty large in the photo with the sports bra on. Best to give it time to heal. Good luck.
Giving implants time to settle
Hello. One week is not enough time for the implants to settle. Your implants will not settle for about another three months and I would not be too worried about your outcome until then. Many patients feel that their implants look larger over time after breasts settle into their final position.

Do You Think I Will Have my Desired Size Once I Fully Heal?
Photos in a bra are quite unhelpful in knowing your current status. I don't like to speak in terms of cup size, since there are no fixed definitions. Surgeons on this site who do commonly speak of cup size will quote a cup size increase for every 150-200 cc of implant size, with the smaller amount appropriate guideline for smaller band size, as in 32.
I would expect by those guidelines to see a 3 cup size increase, but this is never completely predictable. All the best.
