You still have a ways to go for your recovery. At the moment it appears that your results look good. You should wait 4 months or so before you judge your results. In the meantime, follow your surgeon's instructions and wear your bra as advised.
At this time, your breasts haven't dropped, yet. You'll have to wait about 3-4 months after surgery before your breasts take on a more natural contour.
You still have quite a bit of healing and changes to come. You will likely drop a bit more as its still quite early, and things will soften and relax for a while to come.
As far as size is concerned, as long as you like the size and how it fits your body, dont be concerned with what a bra says. The only thing that matters is if they were the size you were going for.
Bra cup sizes are entirely made up/subjective and differ depending simply on brand, not to mention how people wear them. They are really the worst way to assess yourself. If you dont feel too big then you arent, its that simple.
It is likely that your implants will drop slightly and that you will be a 34D with the 385 cc implants. You will see your final result approximately six months after surgery. Good luck.
Congratulations on your surgery! Implants can take anywhere from 3-6 months to drop so at just 3 weeks post-op, I would expect that your implants will drop more and start filling out toward the bottom portion of your breasts. Although most of your swelling should be gone, everyone is different so you may still be a bit swollen, but from your photo, you don't appear to be a DD. Keep in mind that bra manufacturers are all different with how they size so go get measured at several different stores but wait another few months before investing in expensive purchases. Continue going to your follow up visits with your surgeon and following post-op instructions. ac
Oh yes. You will drop over the first 3 months or more. Some surgeons would give you an elastic band to wear across the top of the breasts to help encourage them to drop. But you are very early in the post operative stage. They will certainly drop more.
and you don't appear as a DD cup. Bra manufactures don't have stringent guidelines so I advise my patients to focus on the look that they want and not an arbitrary cup size. Your early results look great so keep your surgeon informed and work towards the best result possible.
Thank you for your question and photos. 3 weeks out is still very early. There will be many changes over the upcoming weeks as the skin and muscle stretch out. You can still have some residual swelling of the tissues that will resolve as well. Continue to be patient, stay in close contact with your surgeon and he or she will help guide you through the post operative changes.
Best of luck
You still have some swelling at this point in my experience. Therefore, your breast size will be change a bit more. Also remember that bra sizes are very inconsistent from one maker/brand to the next and are very unreliable. Your results look good so far. Good luck and be safe.

Looks in good position now but the size was too small for a d cUP!!! I would recommend at least a 450 cc or more...
