I am confused. I see that heidi montag has 700cc and her implants definately look big. She said she is an E or F cup. Although I have not read what band size, I am assuming based on her tiny body it is no bigger than 32. I have 533cc and I wear a 32E and I am absolutly nowhere near her size. I also look at one of the Victoria’s Secret models that I think has beautiful large breasts and in an interview she said she is a 32C. She also looks much bigger than me. I was fitted at nordstrom and my bras fit perfectly, but I just don’t get how I cold possible have the same cup size or bigger than these women. My husband agrees that theirs are much bigger so it is not a warped image I have of myself. Can anyone explain?
Your quandary is precisely why I preach constantly about why cup size is a very poor way to plan a BA or judge its result! There is no standard of measurement for cup size – not in fashion. There is no medical definition for cup size – period!
So your E and Heidi’s E get very confusing – don’t they?? It’s because there is no validated way to judge a cup size, so it seems really silly to me to plan an operation based on a term that really has no meaning. But patients and surgeons do it every day when there are scientifically proven and validated systems of measurement that will help patients and surgeons plan BA based on the patient’s body – not someone’s idea of what a “Full C” might be. The High Five System of measurement will give you and the ps the area of the empty space of the breast envelop – using the best breast implants that simply fill the breast will yield a very natural, blended upper breast and a breast that is least likely to cause you to need a reoperation or revision due to excessive weight on your tissue long-term.
I hope this helps clear the confusion – in the end both you and Heidi are E’s - you just shop at different stores!
