Should size be selected on what you want naked or clothed?

When I was at the beach last weekend, I saw some incredible bikini clad boobies. And I noticed something... Boobies that look average in a t-shirt often look massive when covered by a small piece of triangular fabric. So here comes the issue... Do I go bigger and never where another padded push-up bra, but look fantastic clothed, and risk being potentially self conscious in strappy evening dresses and bikinis, or go a little more conservative so that I don't feel uncomfortable and like I'm showing too much. I LOVE big boobs, but I am not into big fake looking boobs for myself. I don't want the attention. I have been wearing 470 rice sizers around the house, and I have adjusted to them to the point that I don't think they look like rice in a normal shirt. Then I went up to 530 and felt like a porn star. I spend most of my life clothed, so I feel like I should go bigger so they are the look I want IN clothes. On the other hand, to get that look, I fear I will be too big to be comfortable in a bikini! Where is the happy medium? I know everyone says to go up when in doubt, but to what? I will probably get mod+, and my options are 50 cc increments! 450? 500? 550?? Ahhhhhh!!!!

Great question! I would say that the majority of the time you are going to be fully clothed so you should definitely think about a size you want to be with clothes on. I am considering a re-do for this very reason. My boobs disappear in clothes. From the side I still look flat. I wish I knew this going in as I would have gone 550 to start with.

I think the main questions here is whether you'll be comfortable looking at yourself naked if you had very large breasts? Would you be self conscious? Do you want it to be practical?

For myself I want to go the moderate route because:
1. I want to exercise
2. Have the option of wearing pushups under clothing to look better
3. Be able to take my children swimming without young boys and others looking at me. It might be very embarrassing for the children

Hope that helps

I have Ultra High Profile and size out a G cup at most E cup minimum but I look no more than a D/DD clothed or naked.I knew implants would look smaller than natural boobs so asked to look a D cup not be a D cup!My boobs look very natural and fine in bikinis and strappy tops etc.Mods won't give much projection so I don't think they'll look too fake even in say a 500cc.Plus unders look more natural and honestly you'd be surprised how normal they look.If your surgeon is good they should be able to achieve a natural look for you with an implant around the 500 mark because that isn't a big implant.My surgeon managed a great job on me so it is achievable.Good luck.

Thanks for asking this, because I've been debating this question, too. Based on most people's responses, it seems I should go the larger of my PS's two recommendations (375 instead of 325) so I'm satisfied with how I look most of the time in clothes, and then just hope my hubby doesn't think I look enormous naked, because he prefers that I be smaller, like a B.

I haven't been on this site very long at all, but it seems like most of the posts I've read were in this mindset "When In doubt go larger" lol.

This surgery is all about you, so it really comes down to how you will feel about it in the end. I'm sure you'll make the right choice!

I definitely think that size should be chosen according to how you want them NAKED because with a bra you can make them look much bigger then they really are if you want and vice versa you can make them look smaller with the clothes you wear! Personal opinion Hope it was of help

These are great things to think about before you decide. I struggled with this, as well. I didn't want to look 'small' in clothes, but I also didn't want to feel the need to hide them at the beach/pool.

You can check my siggy to see my stats. I was considering 500, even 550, and as low as 400. I'm very happy with my size (although I'm probably not done with d&f yet). I went in the middle of what I was considering. I know most people say 'when in doubt, go bigger' but that's really only if you WANT bigger.

Here's something that a couple ladies on here suggested: would you be more upset to be a little too big, or a little too small? For me, I'd be upset being too big...but everyone has their own comfort level, and their own idea of 'big'. hth

Remember you can always dress them up but it's pretty hard to hide them. When I first got my BA done I bought all kinds of padded push up bras. Most of them have gone the same place as the bras I wore before my BA. Except for the occasional Saturday night out I don't need them.
I have plenty of boob I don't need to fake any more than what is me. I love my look in clothes and in beachwear.
So to answer your question I think you should go for the look you want naked with all the beautiful lingerie available you can get any look you want.

Would you rather wear padded bras to get the look you want in clothes so you feel more comfortable naked and in a bikini, or would you rather not have to wear padding anymore and get used to feeling bigger naked and in bikinis? Would you rather feel a bit big or a bit small? It's a personal preference kinda deal. Good luck!

That's a great question.

Unless you are at the beach an awful lot, I say go for looking the way you want in clothes.

I know in a bikini there's no hiding them, and with clothes you can hide or show off a little if you want, but I'd say you're in clothes most of the time so have them look the way you want most of the time.

It just means you'll look totally awesome in your bikini!

I say go with aiming for achieving the look you want clothed. Beach time is only a small percentage of life. You're clothed most of your life, unless your an exotic dancer.

I still have a lot of healing to do but I feel a little flat in clothes. At the same time, I don't think I would be comfortable if I was too much bigger in a bikini. They take some getting used to!

I'm more interested in a natural look so I'm going smaller with my revision. I don't mind wearing push-up bras if I'm going out for the evening, etc. I have 550's right now and don't like the way I look naked...I feel self-conscious. I'm not married so still dating & I'd prefer to err on the side of smaller this time because I don't feel comfortable naked as I am.

Also, I've been wanting to go swimming and to the beach for the longest time but don't feel comfortable in a bathing suit. I think I'm in the minority here though

For me...I practically live in tank tops and in the summer we are always at teh pool (I have 3 kids). I wanted to be comfortable in tanks and swim suits over being a good size in clothes. So yes, I do feel like my boobs are a bit small in shirts BUT I love the way they look in tank tops and naked.

I thinkn it is all about what you wear and your life. I have 3 kids and didn't want to stop doing things I love doing with them because I all of a sudden am not comfortable doing.

I would go based on what you look naked... mainly because I'm relatively OK with myself clothed (in push up bras), its naked and in bathing suits where I feel the need for the enhancement. It is totally, in every way, about your personality. Personally, I'm not a big boob type of gal and I would be devistated if I went too big. However, anything is better than what I have now, so if I am adding 200-250cc's I can possibly look the same after surgery. It is quite obvious that the longer you have the more you get used to them. I mean, by no means are people in the D + range considered small in society. Again, its completely a personal perference.

I feel like the minority, too! I'm the 1% that would rather be too small than too big... After BA that is! I have a few friends with naturally huge boobs, and they look much heavier than they are... I don't want this to ever be an issue. I also fear that with a moderate weight gain, I will have GINORMOUS tatas if I go too big. I'm not looking at a tiny implant... 450-500 cc. I think I will need mod + implants, and Mentor doesn't make 475 silicone mod+. And it doesn't help that I've seen 400s with similar stats that look HUGE, and 550s that look perfect! I'm to the point where I feel like just giving my PS free reign and see what he comes up with!
