Use the Rice Test for Breast Augmentation Sizing

Rice test modelIf you are considering breast augmentation, choosing the breast implants that will allow you to meet your size goal is the most important decision you will make.

Using a simple experiment called the rice test, you can start to get an idea of how you would look with different sizes of breast implants.

Wearing "rice implants" or "rice sizers" inside of a sports bra, you can quickly "try on" different breast implant sizes in the comfort of home.

Understanding Breast Implant Volumes

The volume of your breast implants — along with their shape, proportion and feel — will go a long way toward defining your final result with breast augmentation.

Breast implant volumes are measured in cubic centimeters (cc's). Doing the rice test helps you to become familiar with volume measurements in cc's and better understand implant sizes when you discuss your target breast size with your plastic surgeon.
