No, it doesn't look like it to me, but my view on breast sizes changed so much after my BA! I'm a 32DD (34DD in some brands) and she seems smaller than me, but maybe I'm just not seeing the right view???
My view of big boobs and D and higher cup sizes has changed drastically since I had my BA. I'm not even a good judge anymore because I am wearing a 32DD, which is the same as a 34D, and my boobs aren't big at all. In fact at my last post op visit, when I told my PS what my new bra size was, he said that they must be making bras smaller than they used to because he said my boobs do not look like D's! haha! but I agree with him. And so I keep going to the store to try on various brands of D sized bras just to make sure it's not some kind of fluke - and they fit. So honestly this whole thing is a big mystery to me. BIG MYSTERY!!! lol
I always have such a hard time guessing cup size, I bite at it for sure --- that being said --- MANY times I've seen breast they (the lady) state they are D/DD and think "oh goodness no way, you look so much larger than that"!!! --- then seen some that state they are a D/DD and think --- "they do NOT look that large at all " --- just really hard to tell for me ---
I'm a 32GG, and no way do I think I look that large by far --- I AM in wrong band size, I am to be in a 30 band, tiny RC I have --- if I were to be the 30 bands the cups would go up a bit when I go down in band size so cup size would be more than the G/GG --- but I can NOT stand a tight band --- I know, I know bra experts, I can hear ya loud and clear, promise...
I could totally buy it. I don't think women with D or DD cups in the smaller band sizes necessary look very big. I wear a 30DDD and NO ONE thinks I am that big. All my friends think I'm lying about my size, LOL, because they think I "look like" a C cup. How "big" you look depends totally on your body, size and shape, and you always have to remember that cup size is proportional to band size, so a 30DDD is the same cup volume as a 36C.
That's why I think PS's do everyone a disservice by even talking about size in terms of cup size. Cup size is RELATIVE. A D is not the same over different rib cage sizes.
Modsquad, Dr. Corbin is a celebrity surgeon in Beverly Hills, he did not do my BA/BL. I consulted with him a few years ago at the insistence of two girlfriends who were highly satisfied with his work (both are models here in LA). The reason I did not choose him is that a lot of his clients are beautiful young ladies. I am a regular middle aged woman with nobody taking a second look at me. I felt I would not get the attention given to the hot women whose results he could publish in his website. In addition, the girls who work at the office are drop dead gorgeous, I find that intimidating. In no way or form this is to imply the doctor would have treated me any different, but I ended up with a surgeon who is low key and has experience with the unique challenges presented by a middle aged body.
I would have never guessed that - but then some people say they are a 36B and I don't think they look that small. I guess my perception of breast size is not very accurate.
My friend who is short and very tiny said she was a 36D breast size and I would have never guessed it - she had small breasts and then had implants and I know they can be deceiving and have a different look but when she told me that (and this was before my surgery) I thought how can she be a 36D and I'm a 36D (which I'm sure was wrong but that is what I wore) and I just thought how can we be the same size and she looks so much smaller than me.
I'm really struggling with my size right now so I probably shouldn't be viewing and obsessing over the younger looking boobs that I was hoping for and do not seem to have at this point
