My first bra was when I was 10 or 11 and my mum looked at my and she brought me some sport bras. No I wear proper bras and I’m 12!


I'm 8 and I got my first bra yesterday from Debenhams I'm 34c I know big right. And I got them because my breasts are ginormous. I started growing breasts when I was 6(back then I was around 32a) and all the boys in my class laugh at me. I have see through and nude bras aswell as neon pink,yellow,green and purple.


I' 13 but I got my first bra when I was 12. It was great cause it was so comfortable.


Hey My name is Ellie! I got my first proper bra at the age of 11 (Now I'm 13) .. I had asked my mum for a proper bra because angel bras were too small so we went just me and my mum to matalan And I picked up a bra then when I went to the till it was a male Cashier And I was so embarrassed!! Now when I get one it doesn't bother me But it just seemed so cringy back then 😂

The Puberty Girl

I'm 12 and turned 12 in July btw. Basically I used to wear crop tops and it was really frustrating because all my friends had proper bras and my boobs are big enough for a bra. One day me my mum my sister and my baby brother went shopping and I asked my mum if I could look at the bras and she said yes. so we went to look but the were too small (by breasts are bigger) and we went to Debenhams but they were too expensive. 2 days after which is the day I'm writing this, we went to primark and got a really nice nude bra that matched my dark skin color for only £2 and Im loving it!


Just before I started high school my mom took me to M&S to get fitted for a bra. It was kinda embarrassing but I quickly got over it and felt like a proper grown up after a couple of months ! I definitely recommend the Angel range by Marks & Spencer’s they are so comfy and soft,they have so many choices and good for a first bra ! xxx
