You don't know who

I got my first bra at the weekend. It's non padded. I was too scared to get fitted so I tried on a 28aa and I physically couldn't get it on. So then I tried on a 32aa and I still had to have it on the middle setting then we bought them. There you go that's my uninterested first bra story.

I've been wearing a crop top since I was 8 and now I've got a a bud in one boob at first I thought it was cancer but then I read the breast buds blog and it really helped I don't know if I need a bra or not because I've started getting buds when I got my first crop top I ask my mum if I can could get some pants and she said yes then I asked if I can get some crop tops as they were next to the pants and she said yes


I started wearing crop top when I was about 8 and I was one of the only people wearing once was a bit embarrassed but as the Year went on gradually more and more people got crop tops then my friend needed to get a crop top but was too embarrassed to ask her mum so she went to the shops to buy new knickers and then when they were there she said I need a crop top they're all my other friends copied and now we all wear crop tops soon I think I need a bra I'm scared to ask my mum because nobody else in my class was one except from one other person.

I was in year 5 and one day, I was wearing a tight shirt and my nipples were shown. I asked my older cousin if I could borrow her bralette. At the end of the day, my mom actually asked me if I wanted to buy my first bra and I said yes.


When I was in year five we had the puberty talk and our teacher said that it might be time to start wearing bras so I asked my mum if we could go into a shop to get me some knickers and then whilst we were there I told her that I needed a bra so I got measured at m&s and the woman was really nice and friendly! I was a size 32a and am now alms two years later a 32b

Hi I’m going to m and s in two days with my mum I’ve heard they have good bras there. I would like to get a bra as I’m nearly 12 and I’m going into yr 7 but I’m rlly nervous to get measured. I’ve got buds and even when I wear my crop top under neath a T-shirt my nipples poke thru. How should I tell my mum. I’m scared. I used to have a set of crop tops that were like bras I tried them on the other day on my own but I couldn’t get them on cause they were rlly small .I’m scared she’ll think I’m still to young to wear one how should I tell her. Plz reply quick cause I’m going in the morning now.👙😰👋🛒🛍


My mum took me at the end of year 5 to get a proper bra fitting at M&S and I was dreading it. But as I soon found out, it’s not bad at all. The lady who did mine was really nice and talkative, asking me if it was my first time. They advise you to go regularly every 6 months for another fitting. The lady got me loads of different bras with patterns on to try but I didn’t like any of them so I picked my own in the size I was measured and happy. It’s not that bad girls ;)
