It depends on your chest wall measurements and existing breast tissue as implant size does not accurately correlate to a bra size. It also depends on the brand and style of bra you wear as size varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. It's hard to predict what cup size you'll be since there are many variables including different bra makers. I prefer to focus on the look that you want and depends largely on the preoperative planning which includes trying on different implant sizers and looking in the mirror to see what you like. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck!
Breast size with 250cc implants
Thanks for your question and photos. You seem like and ideal candidate for both procedures. It certainly seems reasonable to do an augmenationa/mastopexy. However, size is never a guarantee. it depends on how much tissue is removed from you lift. All bra manufacturers size differently thus in some you may be a DDD and others just a C cup. Most surgeons can guarantee you that amount or size of the implant. In order to be sure, doing the operation separately would give you a better chance of knowing what implant would produce your desired outcome of DD. I think it is a plan that I would recommend but maybe increase the size a bit to make sure that your breast are your desired size. Good Luck.
All the best,

The thing about size is...
Did You Know? Implant size (measured by cubic centimeters, or “cc”) only matters as far as it will help you get the look you want. In these photos, can you guess who has the larger sized implants?
What limits how big you should go?
1. Your current breast size. This matters because you’ve got to have enough existing breast tissue to cover the implant. If you haven’t got a lot to spare, some implants may just be too big to fit.
2. Your chest and shoulder width. Fortunately, implants come in different base widths so you can get a size that works well with your frame.
I recommend to make an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon for a person evaluation and to talk about your goals.
Good luck :)
