If you’re seriously starting to consider breast implants, you’re probably at the beginning phases of deciding on your future breast size. Most women who visit our plastic surgeon for their initial consultation tend to speak in “cup sizes,” which is understandable since this is the way we size our bras. What we tend to find, however, is that a woman seeking a particular cup size actually intends to resize their breasts to put them in better proportion with the rest of their body. Just like the various fitting pairs of size 6 jeans you may have, the bras you own of the exact same size may all fit you differently. In addition to choosing a breast implant size that fits the rest of your size and shape, there are other factors to consider.
Try Them On for Size
That’s right, just like trying on bras, you too can try on different sizes of implants. While trying on breast implant sizers, it will be important for you to consider your height, weight, overall body frame, hip width, and shoulder width. During your consultation, you’ll probably try on a variety of sizes that may work well with your frame.
Consider Your Lifestyle
You’ll also want to start thinking about your lifestyle and how your breast implants will affect it. Your style, for example, is something that’s important to consider. While you’ll probably want to buy a new wardrobe eventually, bringing in a few pieces from your closet is a great way to see what size will suit you best for what you like to wear. Your fitness level is also something to consider, as you won’t want your breast implants to interfere with anything if you’re a serious athlete.
You should consider your personality when deciding on the size of your breast implants. For example, breasts that are larger than proportionate to your body may turn lots of heads, and determining whether or not you’re okay with the extra attention may play into your sizing decision. It’s also important you do what’s right for you and your body while meeting your personal goals. Choosing a size based on what someone else has or because of the opinion of others could make you unhappy in the long-run.
