when my breast started growing at first no one in my class had experienced it yet so i asked my best friend she was just behind me in growing prosess she actually helped me loads when i got my first crop top iwonded if my boobs were going to fit in and they were really tight the next day we went to the big bra shop (that's what it was called )and it was really embarrassing at first because my old friend was at the coffee shop next door the size fitted perfectly I had to get a small (not extra small) MY MUM WAS REALLY CALM AND SUPPORTIVE ABOUT THE WHOLE THING!! i came out feeling great because I felt older(somehow???) thank u for all ur help everyone its helped me loads!!!!!!!!


I was 11 and felt that my breasts were sticking out of my crop top so I kinda just asked my mum if I could get a bra. I went to Next and just found the smallest bra available (28AA) and it actually fit! Now I'm a 32AA


Bonsour! My name is Rosa, I'm 14 and I live in France with my family, last week I was walking with my aunt around town as we were planning to do shopping that day, and at one point my aunt stopped outside a big lingerie department store called Chantélle as she said she wanted to look at bikinis for her holiday-But when we went into the store I saw her at the counter asking one of the bra fitting ladies if they could fit me for a new bra-Up till then I had been wearing a 28A but it was so tight now that it felt like an elastic band over my boobs(😂) and there was lots of overspill. The fitter lady took us to a small changing room at the back of the shop and she measured me(I had to take my top off but I didn't feel too shy about this because I felt grown up for having a bra fitting) Both my aunt and I were shocked when the lady said that I should be wearing a size 32FF, no wonder my bra had felt so uncomfortable before-I was worried that the lady would only bring me really ugly, big bras to try on but she brought in a really pretty purple silky bra in my new size, and it fitted really well and the back felt really snug and nice too-Its been a week since I got fitted and I feel much more supported(my boobs have stopped wobbling in gymnasium at school as well😂)-So if you think you need your first bra or if you feel like you need a bra fitting, there's nothing to be embarrassed of, it just means you're growing up and its completely normal :)

I got my first bra from Marks and Spencer's bra department. I knew I needed a bra for a while and finally plucked up the courage to ask my mum. I got measured and I was a 30c. Now five months later I am a 30d. If you are looking for a first bra go to Marks and Spencer's- they have a fab range and a fab team. For two plain bras it's £15 ( yes I know they're a little pricey but they're amazingly comfortable) and for two patterned bras it's £16. I was nervous before I got measured but the lady was really nice and chatted to me as if I were an old friend.☺

Basically, I was in town shopping with my mum and she was at the counter buying her new bra. I spotted a pink one and whispered to her “that’s pretty” and then she got me measured (30AA) and bought it. If you are nervous, just talk to her, she will understand. After all, she went through it too x


Had to ask my dad, wrote a letter and left it on his bed, went bra shopping later that day, I was 10 and 28aa, now 13 and 32c, honestly write a letter it will work


oh man isnt it great when you can take off your bra at night and it's like your boobs are freed and you feel happy and light and liberated :)))
