Hi! I'm also curious about the rice sizers so I will be paying attention to this thread. My PS told me that 2 cups of water/rice/etc is equal to 480cc's so I could estimate my sizing that way to have a rough idea. Hope that helps a little, but if I find out more I will post about it!

mine were pretty much spot on to what I tried on at the office and the rice sizers I made at home, I even bought a bra of the size I wanted and tried them on in the office and with the rice. I know wear that bra!

I personally do not believe in the sizers..my PS didn't either. He was the one who changed my mind about them bc I was making the at home rice sizers and he told me to stop. How can they be accurate? If you use rice sizers, you are putting them on top of your boob. The actual implant is going to be under tissue and/or under the muscle...and you don't know how thick that is so I dont believe a rice sizer is giving you an accurate estimate..just my opinion though! They are definitely fun to make and try on though lol

this! i first tried the 475 rice sizers and loved them! was dead set on nothing smaller! then i had my consultation and got surprised when my PS told me 350s would easily give me what i wanted! thats almost a whole 100ccs LESS than what i thought i wanted! i then went home and made 350 rice sizers and was like NO WAY! TOO SMALL! but listened to my PS. SOOOO GLAD I DID!!! my 350ccs look NOTHING like what the 350 rice sizers made me look! my 350cc HP silicone unders look like what the 475 rice sizers made me look!! 475 ccs would have looked ridiculous on me!

the Vectra 3D imagining i did was SPOT ON!

Yeah I have to say that the rice sizers, and the sizers at the PS's office looked huge on me, but my implants do not and they certainly don't feel nearly as heavy.

I had the Vectra imaging done as well ...it was awesome! So glad someone is with me on this bc most girls love those rice sizers and I just don't get it. LOL

OMG that makes me feel so much better! I made rice sizers and tried 500cc and 600cc and I hate the 500 but like the 600. My PS told me I couldn't go any bigger then 500 so I have been worried this whole time they wont be big enough.
