Do The Rice Test To Help Decide On The Size And Weight Of The Implants You’d Like.

If you’ve decided to go ahead with breast implants, or indeed, if you’re considering it’s something you would like in the future, a simple test is advised to help you choose the size of implants you’d like.

Weigh out some dry rice then pour it into some pop-socks or stockings. The amount of rice in grams is equal to the CC of the implant.


Place these in your bra to give you an idea of the additional weight and size.

Wear them like this for a day or so to get a good feel for what it will be like.

Add or remove the rice according to what is comfortable. Take a few selfies in a mirror of different weights to give you an idea of the size you would like. The shape will obviously not be right but it will give you an idea of a suitable implant size.
