The implant size for your desired result will be best determined with a thorough in-office evaluation. There are many ways tod determine an implant suitable to you. The most important factor is the different measurements you surgeon will do.
The choice of implant, type, profile, size will also be dependent on your surgeons expertise, experience, artistic vision, and communication.
Please make sure you choose a surgeon board certified by "The American Board of Plastic Surgery", check her/his reviews, before and afters, credentials, experience, and have a quality consultation.
You surgeon should be preferably be a member of "American Society of Plastic Surgeons" and a member of "American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons" to indicate cosmetic plastic surgery is their main focus and they have been evaluated to perform quality aesthetic surgery.

Figuring out the best implant size
Implant Volume and Cup Size
I can assure you that there is no way to determine accurately or consistently a cup size based on implant volume. More importantly, it is irrelevant. You need to have in-office sizing with an unpadded bra to see how you look in the mirror. That's all that matters - how you see yourself.
Go visit a few ABPS certified/ASAPS member surgeons that specialize in breast surgery.
Best of luck!

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.
