Avoid biggest implant

The biggest cc that you could get
The largest implant that will fit properly behind your breast is one that has a diameter that is about 3/4 to 1cm less than the external width of your breast with you upright and arms down.
The largest forward volume (in round, smooth surface implants) is a high profile. This should make you look about two cup sizes larger than you are now with the same gap between your breasts but a much steeper slope on the sides of your cleavage.
Get some help to measure your breast width, look up round, smooth surface implants with a diameter about 3/4 cm less than that, and then look up that diameter in a high profile implant. That's the largest volume that will fit you and make you look about two cup sizes larger.

The best size for you depends on your height and frame and your breast measurements. I would recommend implants under your muscle, and typically 250-350 are the largest that would look natural unless you are 6 ft tall. In addition to looking unnatural, there can be quite a bit more postop soreness if you went any larger.

I consider you to be the highest risk and most likely patient to have problems after breast augmentation: you are very thin with very small breasts, and you want BIG results. Recommendations like high profile, over the muscle, and implant sizes well past 300 cc reminds me to tell you that it's the 'wild west' out there in the world of implant surgeons.
There are actually well established guidelines based in scientific clinical evidence that guide surgeons through the process of proper implant selection and surgical execution which will lead to very low complication rates (2-3%) and long term good results. Unfortunately, few surgeons adhere to these recommendations, and it shows with the current rate of complications leading to reoperation exceeding 20% nationally. This is mostly due to inappropriate implant size choices and non-meticulous surgical techniques.
Just like your shoes, breast implants wont work well if they are the wrong size. Find a surgeon that adheres to dimensional planning and careful cautery-based surgery. You will not get that full C cup, but you will get a pretty and complication free result that will last a very long time.
Best of luck!

It is very difficult to determine implant size based on photos. I recommend seeing a plastic surgeon for consultation to help pick a size that is right for your frame and achieves your aesthetic goals.
