Why Women Choose a Bigger Breast Size

Okay. Let’s be honest. Would you rather go for a bigger breast size – probably a C cup – if you will be given a chance to have a free breast enhancement surgery? Think. You couldn’t decide, could you? Well, women are naturally indecisive. Admit it!

We toss and turn and later on we thought we have made up our mind, but then we waver at the last minute. So it is expected that any beauty-related decision will need a huge, long thought process.

Listen up, girls! The good news is that you no longer have to second guess the right “new” breast size for you because you can actually test out various breast cups before the surgery.

A British surgeon has created a special bra that will let you do just this. It enables women to try out different breast sizes for two weeks! However, a recent study has shown a surprising fact – women who tested out various breast cups choose bigger ones in surgery.

The Rationale behind It

Why Women Choose a Bigger Breast Size

Dr. Mark Henley, the British surgeon and creator of the so-called “special bra”, stated that surprisingly, women who tested out the different breast sizes prior to surgery ended up going “bigger” than they anticipated.

In normal instances, the C cup breast size was the one that’s often recommended by surgeons and it was also the most popular size for most women, but it turns out, the “hottest” breast size in the study is D cup.

The Implications

Do these mean women of today tend to take risk? Are we no longer conscious when it comes to the outcomes of getting breast implants?

In a nutshell, giving women a chance to try out different breast sizes would give them a “preview” of the experience of having a bigger breast size, yet allows women to perform normal activities like exercising and shopping.

As the results show, the “special bra” that comes with extra gel fillers provides women the confidence to opt for a bigger breast size if the “breast test drive” turns out well. Without this “preview”, most women often thought a bigger pair of breasts would make them look weird.

According to a participant of Dr. Henley’s study, she never thought she’d go for a DD yet decided to do so because the breast size trial made her realize that it didn’t look abnormal given her body shape.

Opposing Views

On the other hand, Gerald Imber, M.D., who is also a renowned author through her book Youth Corridor, says that implants are underneath the skin and not something that are worn.

This means that the special bra is not flawless when it comes to mimicking how implants would feel like. Unlike the implants, you can simply take your bra off whenever it feels uncomfortable. Simply put, breast implants behave as part of the person-they are real.

Additionally, according to research women usually refuse to make dramatic changes. This can mean that in most cases, the fact that those women who try out different breast sizes choose bigger ones in surgery may be somehow deceived into making a decision that they will regret in the future. However, another study indicated that many women who have also undergone breast enhancement surgery later on regret not choosing a bigger cup size.

In the end, the important part is making a decision that you will not regret in the future. This is why if you’re considering breast enhancement surgery then you really need to think about it for a while before making the final decision when it comes to cup size.
