A Guide to Making Your Own Breast Implant Sizers

If you’re thinking about breast augmentation, the size of your implants is one of your most important decisions. The right size is key to your satisfaction. Your surgeon will help determine what size fits your shape and chest wall anatomy, but you can also make your own breast implant sizers to help you decide.

Wearing the sizers at home can help you figure out which size will make you feel most comfortable and look best under your clothes.

Rice implant sizers are a simple and cheap DIY project that allows you to test out various implant sizes. Here’s what you need to make your own rice implant sizers:

  • Panty hose or knee high hose
  • Measuring cups
  • Dry rice
  • Scissors

To make your breast implant sizers, first cut the legs off of the panty hose halfway from the bottom and stretch each out. Then measure your rice carefully, using the following guidelines:

  • 1 cup is equal to 250 cc
  • ½ cup is equal to 125 cc
  • ¼ cup is equal to 75 cc

After you’ve filled the panty hose, compress the rice into the bottom into a spherical shape. Then tie a knot in the panty hose right above the rice filling, cut off the remaining tail of the panty hose, and you’re done.

Put your rice implant sizers in your sports bra and wear it under your tops to get an idea of how a specific implant size will look and feel. You may want to make and try out more than one set to get a better idea of what size implants you like best. The video below shows how to make the rice implant sizers.
