I am nearly fifteen years old, and I only wear seamless crop tops because bras are just uncomfortable and distracting. I'll probably have to switch to a bra soon lol :(

Hey all reading this, so my first bra story wasn’t with my mum, so I like to think that it isn’t really my first bra story, but anyway. One day I was in town with two friends. They weren’t my besties or anything but they were both really nice, and both already had bras. We went to M&S and bought two padded, non wired bras for ten pounds. They are quiet comfortable (if you wear them for a couple of days, they will soften, kinda like breaking in a pair of shoes) and I would totally recommend them. They aren’t angel bras though. Also, if you want a bra but don’t have one, go get one with friends, it’s much less awkward! And don’t worry if you are a late bloomer like me! Even though it’s very embarrassing! Aaaaargh! My mum doesn’t know about them though; does anyone have any advice on telling her? 😬😂😊😕🙄


Hi! I'm 12 years old and I'm going to tell two stories: my first bra story and my first training bra story So I first got a training bra when I was around 9. Me and my mom went to marks and Spencer's and she got me two packs of training bras: 1 was a multicolored pack of 5 and I don't remember the second one. I got them because I had begun developing boobs and you could kind of see my growing breast buds through my shirt. My first bra story is actually very funny. I was at a sleepover at my moms best friends house because her daughter is also my best friend. So my mom and my best friends mom had gone shopping. Now before that, mom had been talking about how my boobs were getting big and how she needed to buy me a proper bra. So when my moms best friend came back, she handed me 2 packs of bras from marks and spencer angel range. And the next day, I tried them on. I was 11 and 3/4


Ok so I was around 9/10 when I got my first bras I had been wearing crop tops or trainer bras or whatever but my nips were showing through so my mum took me out to buy some thicker crop tops in PRIMARK we gave up on the crop tops and bought some really tiny ( but pretty) first bras from the kids section. I think they were 30AA. So when I get home I try them on and they were WAYYYYYYYYYY too small so we take them back and see if they have a bigger size, they only went up to a 30a which was WAY too small sooooooo we go to the adults section and I try on some proper padded underwire bras and it turns out I was 34A not 30aa 😂 so yeh we got those now they are getting a little small in the boobular area ( what the hell was that sentence 😂) so we went to Asda and got some t shirt bras in a 34B 😱 bear in mind Asda sizes are rlly tight sooooo. Yeh. Anyway my mum and I were in Tesco and we saw a bra sale and tried them on! I got a lightly padded underwire bra because I only had padded underwire and I wanted to try something new! Taadaaaa that’s my FIRST bra and CURRENT bra story!
