I CAN'T BELIEVE IT!! I was actually brave enough to ask my mum for a bra and now I have one. If you are having trouble with asking for one go right ahead , mum are meant to be supportive.


Just the other day I was super nervous to ask my mum about getting my first bra (stupid I know). I asked her and she was actually really supportive about it and I was in complete shock. Tomorrow we are going to get me one. WISH ME LUCK!


I've been wearing a crop top for about 2 years now and I sorta need a bra but I don't know how to tell my mum even my SISTERS have been talking about my breasts


When I was in 4th grade boys started staring at me. Boys would whisper about my boobs and hug me to see how they felt. One day a reception came up to me and asked why my boobs were so big and weird. I went home crying and told my mum what happened. She went and bought me a tiny bra. All the girls would ask me to take my dress of in the toilets to see what a real bra was like. I was really uncomfortable and selfconcious about my bra and boobs. But now I’ve grown to love and be comfortable with them.


I got my first bra when I was nearly eleven because I had a dance show and would need to do a quick change backstage and I didn’t want to wear a crop top so we went out and bought one (my mum was a bra fitter)


I got my first bra at the beggining of year 5 we went to newlook and my mum took me but my grandma had to come shopping aswell i said can she not come in but i knew what she would do ... but my mum told me not to be so rude ( this story is about to get 500000000000 times more fonny but embarrassing for me ) before we came out i said to my grandma what ever you do dont wave the bras in the air i was saying that as a joke we went inside and i was so embarrased my mum was trying to help me find a bra that fit we couldn't find one but my grandma trys to help but makes everything worse finds the size we were looking for and me mand mum were at the end of the shop insted of asking us to come over she waves the bra in the air and shouts us i was so embarrassed but that isnt the worst there was a girl ilder than me looking at somethig and looks at me like im a freek 😐 this was so embarrassing so i never ever go clothes shoppin with my grandma ..... bye xx

So I’m 13 and I have had breast buds for about four months they are a 34A(my friends let my try on there’s for size) but I saw my friend again on Tuesday and tried it on again one cup was to small I was shocked that only one has got bigger with in a few days so if I need I’m going up a size I really need a bra I’m to nervous to ask my mum. But I went to primark with some friends and picked up a pack of three lace coloured bras for £8 the and lady laughed at me so I want to wear them because when i tough my boobs they hurt because of the buds I don’t know how to tell her.
