Please help I’m to shy to ask my mom for a bra but I need one NOW iv never been very close to my mom and I don’t want to get fitted for one so please help


I was almost later at everything in life, period, teeth and boobs! everyone would always talk about how they had boobs but always had small tiny bras on. In my friend group, I wasn’t last to get my first bra probably in the middle. I was pretty excited and so ready to be grown-up. It wasn’t that bad, we started off with a t-shirt bra as it’s just the easiest (other than sports bras) and there was loads to pick from but I suggest getting a nude colour or white. But if you are about to get your first bra, don’t be worried! if your first or last in your friendship group! we all grow differently and you’ll all get there eventually.


Well my first bra my parents left to go shopping for me and my older sister's they were giving us are clothes and my mom handed me a bra I froze for 2 seconds then took it and walked away not saying a word btw it was a sports bra and I was 10 I was to embarrassed to even wear it for 2 weeks till I did no one even noticed so girls don't be scared to wear one I know it awkward but put it on and you'll feel better.


To Frosty. WOW! You're lucky that your mum let you have a bra at 6/7yrs old mine would never at that age. I was 9 when I needed to start wearing a bra and even then my mum was still in denial that I was getting boobs and hair in certain places.


I got my first bra when I was in year 6 and I was a 30a, everybody at school said I didn't have boobs but I said ''If I can fill an A cup then I've got boobs''. I told my mum and she took me to M and S. I'm now in year 7 and a 32a but nobody said anything. Yay. I have got friends who are completely flat and other friends who are 34dd but breast size shouldn't matter. Thx XOXO Claire


So I’m a flat chested girl.Im 12 years old.I got my first bra at around seven or six.Apparently I thought that I needed one at the time.I thought that I was so grown up and that I was a woman.At school that Monday I pulled down the shoulder of my shirt to make sure every one say my bra and I would pull it of my skin and let go so people would here it and notice


I was too scared to ask my mum for my first bra so I bought it online 🥶
