Thank you for your questions. Unfortunately it is difficult to correlate the size of the implant with the cup size. You could get different cup sizes for the same breast depending on bra manufacturere and bra shape. As for the shape of the implants, high profile implants give more projection than medium height. I hope this will help you.
