Bra Size: The eternal conflict!

Most women love shopping! In my case, if there’s one thing I would rather avoid is buying bras.

If it was as easy as choosing from 3 different sizes, life would be much less complicated, but instead we find so many sizes and different options to choose, whether it’s a half cup, push-up, padded, unpadded, lace, supportive, and the size variation between brands and styles is amazing.

In fact, recent studies determined that up to 80% of women around the world are wearing the wrong bra size, me included!

So lets’ face it, it is a bit frustrating to know that many of us even have different bra sizes in our own wardrobe without really knowing which one should be the correct size.

If your scenario is similar to mine, I encourage you to continue reading.

The other day I discovered a website called www.85b.org in which you only have to enter the measurements of your torso and the website automatically provides you with your correct bra size. I even tried it myself! With a measuring tape I entered the “below”, the “bust” and the “above” size, resulting in a 32C American size, or a 70D European size.

I know when skepticism reaches the highest levels, you don’t really think an automated tool will give you the correct answer. I even visited further the nearest lingerie store and tried on about 5 different types of bras. Result: all of them fit perfectly!

I really suggest you to try it and share with us your experience. At least I feel knowing the correct bra size can help us make easier our next shopping experience. Instead of deciding on the bra size, think about which one you like the most at a store or online!

Most common breast implants myths answered

1. All breast augmentations look fake.

Not true. If the implant chosen by you and your surgeon fits your body and tissues, the breast augmentation should provide you a nice natural appearing result.
You and your surgeon need to have an active communication, in which you would have to explain as much as possible (even with pictures) your desired look, and your surgeon would need to measure, consider your height, frame, tissue in order to recommend you with a breast implant size that will give you a natural semblance. In the other hand, there are some women who don’t necessarily want to acquire real appearance but for the ones of you, who are looking to obtain it, let me tell you it’s possible. Not forget to mention your surgeon selection is quite important. Don’t be afraid to ask about his/her experience and even diplomas.

2. You cannot breastfeed with breast implants.

Not true. Implants are positioned either beneath the pectoralis major muscle or the beneath the breast gland. In neither of the placements will damage the milk production gland nor the milk ducts. So you have nothing to be afraid.

What size of breast implant should you choose?

Take a Peek

If you are considering breast implants we assume you have been checking different pictures of many women with the ideal breast size you want. If not, this should be your first step to come up with your implant size.
Before you start on that, let’s make something clear here. You need to browse pictures of women who are similar to your physical frame. If your height is 5’8″ you cannot expect you are going to look like a woman whose height is 5’2, so please make sure you are referring to women images that are similar to you. What can be big for a woman can be too small for another.

Internet has a lot of before and after pictures where you can see some different results. Remember the more images you see, the better idea you get on the size.

Reasons why women decide to get breast implants

We want to discuss about the motivation for many women to have breast surgery.

Let’s be honest. We just have to turn on the TV, open any magazine or dive a couple of minutes in the internet to see women of different ages and shapes getting close to perfection. Sounds like science fiction but today’s technology makes it possible.

Is completely normal to see women who just gave birth how transform their body to the way they look before they were pregnant. We also see these gorgeous women in between their 40-50 years old looking way better than women who have half their age.

It’s a fact. Technology has melted with the art of beauty, and perfection can be at the hand of almost anyone, as it is more accessible each day and above all: it’s safe.

But before we continue, we must clarify something really important. That perfection word we mentioned. This perfection we are referring is suggestive and each person should focus in their own physique and how to highlight their own beauty. Being unique, looking into your own beauty concept is what we think makes the truly perfect beauty.

So, as the breast augmentation procedure increases around the world, we consider these are the top 5 reason why women decide to get breast implants:

What you should know about Breast Augmentation

History of breast implants:
Initially, breast implant shells were particularly “thin” to approximate a more natural feel, but their durability was limited. Early implants were also traditionally under filled which could result in more frequent implant rupture.
Aggressive implant texturing was developed to maximize implant positioning, and address a painful hardening of the implant that sometimes occurred requiring revision surgery, Called Capsular Contracture. However, aggressive texturization has been associated with seroma and double capsule formation, highly undesirable adverse events.
A variety of implant fill materials were also developed, including saline implants. Saline was an alternative to silicone, but lacked the most natural feel, could leak, and could produce unsightly “wrinkling and rippling” on breasts.

General information of what is best for you!

  • When selecting the right breast implant for you, breast sizing is essential in achieving the desired breast aesthetic outcome. Accurate measurement of the baseline breast size is a basic starting point in selecting the right implant volume or cup size that will best suit you.
  • Another important consideration for your satisfaction is an open dialog regarding the desired cleavage.
    There may also be discussion about desired “upper breast fullness” or the way your beasts will look in certain clothing or swimwear. Breast symmetry, as well as various nipple considerations may also be discussed.
  • While this information, intends to be a useful tool for you and your surgeon, you must understand that precise breast aesthetic decisions are finally determined only by your surgeon. The surgeon is trained to not only understand the wishes of the patients, but to manage the particular biological body factors that will determine your specific breast aesthetic result.
