I’m all for changing whatever makes you unhappy as long as you are doing it for the right reasons (after kids there is no question I will be considering a little nip/tuck).

May I ask what cup size you are now? What size would you like to be? My only suggestion would be to kind of “stuff” your bra to the size you want it and try on different clothing items. I’m an average C cup on a very petite frame and a lot of shirts don’t fit me properly (I’m an XS/S through the waist but my boobs fit more of a M/L). I always wish for smaller boobs because I want to fit into the cute shirts without looking sl***y, but the grass is always greener!

I’m getting mine done… after the wedding. I wanted to make it clear that they were something I was getting for ME, not to look good for an event.

Not me. My Fiance would hate it if I did anything, plus I don’t want the pain and to spend that money.

I am, however getting my FH Lasik eye surgery as his wedding present, he has wanted it forever and has AWFUL vision, he can’t even see the big E on the chart It will be the most either of us has EVER spent on something besides a house or a car, but it would really improve his life and if we have babies we will never spend that money on his eyes when we have educations to save for. So I guess we kinda are!

I got mine a year ago and am still in love with them. I was an A and went to a C; I have curvy hips and have had a child so they fit my body shape. Just a thought, they don’t fully settle into position for 6 months to a year. And they make your skin very shiny and tight at first, think like at least 3 months. I was 24 when I got mine. My surgeon wanted me to bring in pics of what I liked, size wise, to give her a better idea of what I was looking for. I was very prepared going in so I knew what to expect, do plenty of research. Feel free to ask me any questions you may have, I’m not shy lol.

@Hillzie:Thank you!! We are both so excited! He only wears glasses and he’s such a HUNK without them! I have to say, its somewhat selfish, I love his eyes!

Good luck if you go for the implants!

@Hillzie: If you’re thought it through and determined to do it I would suggest getting it done at least 6-9 months before the wedding. They take a while to heal and take their final shape, and they can look really odd and fake before then. Also it will change the dress size you order drastically, since it’s hard to determine what size they’ll end up at.

I wanted implants for a while and I went for it in April.  But it wasn’t something I did for the wedding, that I wouldn’t do.  It’s something I did for more than one day.  I honestly wanted an increase of one cup size.  At first I was worried due to the swelling, but at about the 2 month mark the swelling magically went down and I got exactly what I asked for!  I went from an A to a B.  I second what Meliss said.  If you are planning on breast augmentation before the wedding you want to give yourself time to fully recover.  I waited a while after the surgery before I started trying on dresses. As for pain, it’s relative…depends on you and your surgeon.

As for LASIK, my father gifted that to me for college graduation 7 years ago.  Hands down the best thing ever!!!  I had such bad vision (seriously couldn’t see you if you were standing 2 feet away).  I would do it all over again if I had to!

I can totally understand wanting to look and feel beautiful on your wedding day, but I don’t think I would get plastic surgery with less than a year to go.  It looks like you’re just about at the year mark, so that’s something to think about.  From what I’ve heard that recovery time varies from person to person, and from procedure to procedure.  I’d be too worried that I would take longer to recover, and that the swelling wouldn’t go down in time.

I’d say go with the B, especially if you’re only an a-cup now. A C might overwhelm your frame.
