    ex-minititty got a reaction from Ladybug123 in Small C?   
    I am between 3 and 4 months post op and currently measure a 12c (berlei) or 10D (bonds).
    I got 285cc and started with almost nothing.

    My surgeon wouldn't talk cup sizes and made me decide based on trying on the implants in a crop top. I made rice sizers at home and wore them a lot to get a good idea of what is was comfortable with. It turned out to be quite accurate. I thought I wanted to be a small c when I started my research...and that's what I am.

    I mustn't be too subtle tho. A few people have noticed. A drunk collegue at a Christmas party ask me if they were real. They weren't even on display. I lied and said it was a padded bra. My sister in law came straight out with "so when did you get your boobs done?"

    I had wanted subtle...I am used to them and don't think they're huge...but I wouldn't want any bigger. Feel free to send me a FR Jaymes!

    ex-minititty got a reaction from Blossom in help! god awful back pain :(   
    Hi girls.
    If your Physio has a 'pregnancy pillow' you might be able to lay on your front for treatment with your boobs in the hollow.
    I'm a Physio and I use this for people with a large or painful chest. Otherwise, your Physio may be able to treat you in a sitting up position with your arms and forehead supported on the treatment table. Physio's can be inventive when needed. I certainly am!

    I would recommend lots of heat for your backs. I'd say it's the lack of being able to move/extend properly with tight pecs and sedentary lifestyle initially post op...and sleeping sitting up. Convert to your sides ASAP as per surgeon instructions.

    Also, roll up a towel and place it on the floor/bed. Lay on it so it runs up the centre of your spine starting from about bra level and continuing to base of neck. Support your head with a pillow and lay with knees bend up. It should create some nice extension in your back and a gentle stretch of your chest/pecs. Each day make the towel a little chunkier so you get more movement.

    Hope this might help! I'll certainly be trying to do this come oct 8th!!

    ex-minititty got a reaction from herveybaymummy in Brazilian implant ladies   
    I was recommeded Brazilians due to my high activity levels. There is less chance of rotation as they stick to the chest wall very early and don't tend to move much. I run and swim a lot so this suited me better.

    Yes, they are meant to take a longer to soften but according to the surgeons I saw, by 9-12 months they are very close to being as soft as other inplants. I was told to be patient.

    Depends on what they do in there and how careful your surgeon is. You can be great. It can be horribly painful. But like BA's in that regard.

    I see these all the time as a Physio.

    Take the meds they give you for a few days. Ice and elevate heaps. Wouldn't recommend being on your feet all days saturday unless you get crutches to take some weight off your leg. Still not wise.

    You can make these much worse by doing the wrong thing in the first few days post op. There will be other tattoo expos. Not worth it.

    You'll be able to go up stairs leading with your good leg only initially. But like an old person....

    Rice sizers are so much chunkier than the implants. See if you can have a sizing session wearing the 2 different sized implants in a crop top. I did this...took photos and then decided in my own time at home.

    I felt very top heavy with 285cc rice sizers and not at all the same with the implants in a crop. Implants squish.

    ex-minititty got a reaction from Angel1982 in Back pain from lying elevated?   
    Try and be active during the day. Some of the pain is from stiffness in your whole back- compounded by bad postures and lack of exercise/mobility through the day.
    1. Try to go for a long slow walk during the day. Stand as tall as your boobs allow you and gently hold your shoulders back.
    2. I second the heat pack plan. Ice on the boobs, heat on the spine.
    3. As don said, tipping slightly on your side by a pillow under you helps when sleeping
    4 take some regular really deep breaths to get your ribs moving.
    5. Hot showers and some basic stretches in there- shoulder rolls, neck stretches, walk hands up the shower wall slightly-this loosens your upper back.

    This was what worked for me.
    Good luck!!

    I'm petite-ish with low profile 285cc now almost 4 months post op. Wanted natural look. They feel like my own. I'm surprised this happened so early. I emphasized to my surgeon that I'd regret going too big more than I'd regret too small. I just wanted some shape to me but not to look unrealistic. My surgeon got it right for me. Good communication is the key. Tell them what you want but also what u don't want!!

    He doesn't seem to talk in terms of cup sizes much- more so he looks at pics, listens to your desired result and then offers his opinion too. I trusted him and got the result I was after. He's a boob fairy

    ex-minititty got a reaction from AspiretoInspire in Anyone else parents so angry at their daughter getting BA?   
    I'm sorry to hear this chick! I can't speak from experience as I didnt tell family for fear of this. However, I will have to deal with the repercussions of being secretive at some stage.

    Give her some time to digest it. Maybe write up a pros and cons list for why you're doing it and give it to her for her to see how the pros greatly outweigh the cons for you. The cons can include disappointing her if that's true. When I did my pro/con list...getting a BA was a no brainer. That's my plan for when my mum finds out. I know she and her 14c boobs will think it was a terrible decision, a waste of money and an unnecessary risk.

    I really hope she sees this from your perspective and there are some other girls on here who can give you some first hand experience with this
