Do I look proportionate to my body?

I am 1 month post-op BA. 425 HP. I am having a hard time adjusting to my size. I measure a 32DD, but am not sure my breasts are proportionate to my body? Is this a normal adjustment? I keep feeling I should have gone bigger (maybe because my hips are bigger and I'm a tall girl at 5'9). Are they still just high and tight and that's why I feel this way? I never wanted to look huge and the thought of even being a D before surgery sounded massive, now I'm feeling small at a DD?

Your breasts look beautiful and very proportionate to your body. At 1 month post-op, they are tight and slightly high, as expected. They will soften up and look and feel more natural with time. The timing depends on what type of implants you have. Typically all saline implants fall significantly over time. Massage of the implants twice a day is recommended for all smooth round implants, silicone or saline. This may enhance the softening. It also takes time for your self image to adjust to your new body. Don't worry about bra sizes. Bra sizes are remarkably inconsistent. You may be a different size in different manufacturers' bras. Victoria's Secret bras tend to have smaller cups than other manufacturers so don't be surprised if you require a larger cup size in a Victoria's secret bra.
