The Rice (or water) Test:

When trying to determine what size breast implants to choose, many women use this simple test to get an idea of how many CCs they will be comfortable with. If you would like to try it here is what you can do.

1 cup of rice = 250cc
Take a ziplock baggie and fill it with the appropriate amount of rice and try it on for size. You can also do this test with water.

The Water Test:

1 cup of water = 240cc
