I need to ask for a bra but I dont know how, any tips????

Labrador lover

I was 11 when I got my first bra.My boobs were showing through my clothes. I told my mom I was so embarrassed. My mom went straight to the teen bra section and picked up a 9-11 crop top. You should just tell your mom she will understand because she went through the same thing.

I was 10 when I got my first bra. Here is how it went... I was in year 5 and it was sports class and we were doing athletics i was doing star jumps when my blond started going EVERYWHERE and I was hoping the boys wouldn't notice but then they all pointed at me saying I had giant blobs and I felt really embarrassed 😳 so when I got home I asked my mom to buy me some bras so we went to Tescos and got some. I am now 11 and where A cup bras ☺
