375cc to big?

375cc to big?

Postby JCgirl » Mon Apr 14, 2008 9:57 am

Hi everyone! I am new to this! I am having my Ba in 4 weeks and I am second guessing the size I picked. I am considering 375cc silicon unders. I am 5'1 and 120lbs. I am currently a small B, wanting a full C, small D. Because I am more of a petite woman I dont want to look too top heavy but I dont want to regret going to small. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I got 300 overfilled to 330 cc unders, but mine are saline. We have similar stats. I am 5.2 and 125. At first, I didn't think I had gotten them big enough, but now, almost a year later, I am soooo glad that I didn't get them any bigger. I've started jogging again and exercising more and if they were any bigger, they would really be in the way.

Anyway, hope this helps.

I am about 5'3" and 115lbs and started as a 34A. I had 350cc saline unders put in about 2 months ago and currently I am a 34 full C. I don't know if fluffing will make me any bigger, but right now they are really perfect.
I too work out alot and glad they aren't much bigger or it could be a problem.

JC girl I am a bit smaller than you 5' tall and 110 lbs. I got 350cc's saline unders. Left filled to 385 and right to 400. They are not ridiculous they're a perfect size. I wanted a full C. I was close to an A though to start.

I'm not sure what you will end up with . I think it also depends on the amount of breast tissue you have. I am 3 months po-op, I'm 5'3" weigh 118 lbs, small frame. I was a full 34b pre op, I have 350 mentor smooth MPP Gel Breast implants, under the muscles. I wanted to be a full C, small D. I am now a 32ddd and the last bra I purchased was too small. I just ordered a 32F. I'm not trying to scare you but I wouldn't focus too much on cup size...It didn't work for me. The DDD,F sizes sound huge but it's not as big at it sound....Good Luck!

I am going in this wed for my BA and I had originally ordered 300's that are to be overfilled to 350ccs. After talking to a few gals, I called my PS today (I was second guessing myself and freaking out) and said order me 325's and fill them to 375. I know this isn't a great deal of difference but I just thought maybe I should go a bit bigger. I dunno...I will make up my mind right before I get put under. BTW, I am 5'0" 120 lbs.

Well I'm close to your stats and chose 375HP's and I am wondering if they will be too small. My DH really like how the 400's look in the sizers but I thought they were a little large and preferred the 350's & 375's. So really are the 375's going to look big enough or do I need to go to the 400's? I'm not even sure he will up them because the 375's are exact to my BWD.

I've been thinking about this too much probably but I don't want to go too small and regret it. I would like to be a full C baby D too. I do have some breast tissue I was a small C before I nursed 2 kids. Now I'm an saggy A.

I wasn't much help was I????

Well i've got 380cc silicone textured, and i'm measuring a 34DD/E but then i'm 5'9" and about 130lb's, quite slim built (a little flabby ;).. so this will be totally different on you, not sure if they would come up bigger or smaller on you but the comparison might help

Let us know! :P :P

It's nice to have found some comfort here! Thanks for all of your replies. I think I'm going to stick with the 375,mpp's. Surgery is not for another 4 weeks and its been constantly on my mind...it can drive a person crazy! I'm super excited and thankful to have found this place! :)

I had my BA 14 days ago April 3. I was sooo scared just like you and asked a million questions. I'm 5'0 117 lbs, 27 yrs old. No kids. I use to wear the Victoria Secret gel push up bra 32B so i guess that's 32A in regular bra. Well I went with 375cc under silicone moderate profile plus. Dr. Hochstein (known PS for models and playmates also had his own show called Miami Slice). Let me tell you, I love the way my boobs look. They aren't settled as yet still up and swollen a little. I wear my shirt and looks like the way I look when I had my push up bra on except i have no bra on. Before my BA I was scared to go any bigger, same as you i wanted a full C. So i went with 375 instead of 400. Even though I love my new boobs. I WISH I COULD HAVE GONE BIGGER and kind of Regret not going bigger, espically all that money I paid. If i can do it again I would have gone to 425cc which will put me at probably a 34 D. But remember it also depends on how much you start off with. Since you have more than I do to begin with 375cc will probably put you at where you want. Remember 85% of women who undergos this type of surgery wishes they could have gone bigger. You lose 25cc of that once you go under the muscle. If you like the way the 375cc looks go for the 400. If you like the 350 go for the 375. Hope this helps and Good Luck. Email me if you want pictures. :)

i don't think 375 is too big for you. i am 24(no kids), 5'6 & weigh 118. i started out with 34B and wanted a full C or small D. i got 375cc overs and i think they are perfect. it's been three weeks tomorrow since my BA and they are looking very nice. i think if i had went with much bigger like 450's or something they would have been too big. i didn't want to look "fake" and i don't think they do :) i hope your surgery goes good. Good luck to you:) :D

I go in for my BA on Monday and boy am I nervous. I'm 5' and 120 and I'm planning on 375cc/400cc. Now I'm worried I will be too big but my doctor said it is the right size for my frame. My rib cage is wide. I'm planning on going to work on Thursday. How has everyone's recovery gone so far? Were you up and going quickly or slow recoveries? What type of bras did your doctors provide/recommend for post-op?

I'm scheduled for tomorrow and am having the same worried - that I will be too big. However, I agree with the previous poster about people wishing they'd gone bigger. My PS made me try on bigger than I selected for a few times going back and forth between the two because he kept telling me to make sure because almost everyone wishes they'd gone bigger.

I think you'll be fine!

I'm having my BA the end of this month. I am 5 foot 5 and 145 pounds. I lost like 65 pounds or so. I always had small unshapely breasts, but after I lost weight they looked so sad. I decided on getting a BA I first decided on the 350cc (because they seemed more natural), but my husband and friend said the 375cc looked rounder and overall nicer looking. So I went with the 375cc. I'm a 36A cup. I hope to be a full C. Anyhow, my only thing is that I've had more time to decide on a pair of shoes and wear them up and down the aisle than deciding on the size of breasts. It would be nice if they would let you take the sizer's for a day or two to really help you decide what is best. Wish me luck and pray for me. Thanks. :shock:
