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 ;)


I used to wear crop tops from when I was in year 4 as I didn't like changing naked., in the summer holidays of year six a wanted a proper bra because I felt I needed more support. I told my mum that I needed some more pants so she took me into m and s and then I said I needed some white bras for school.we got some not padded thin ones. In the summer holidays of year 7 I wanted some padded bras as everyone else was getting padded bras. I said again that I needed some more pants and she went on the website and I said to get some different bras as my old ones were not comfortable any more! we got a padded sports bra and a two pack normal padded bra.




I had my first bra when I was 9 - 10 It felt really weird

When I was like 9 years old I got my first crop top I didn't really need it but I would wear it a lot since then I could just remember my whole drawer packed with them.when I was like 11 is when I got my first proper bra it was size 34a it was a wire one. My aunty didn't like that so she then brought me to Mark's and spencers to get measured and got me a wireless bras i wore those bras until I was like 12. I went up like two sizes in the space of like 8-9 months I was shocked .me and my mum was there again shopping for bras that wouldn't even for some 15-16 year olds but I still got to wear them. I felt very uncomfortable because I was so young and I had bigger boobs than some of my friends and some of my 17 year old cousins friends as well but now I have come to embrace it an love the way how god made me.


When me and my twin sister were in 5th grade we had a growth and reproduction seminar at school and after the seminar we started competing to see who would get their boobs sooner, and whose would be bigger xD. We both wanted big boobs like mom's and we wanted them soon. Then the summer before sixth grade I noticed that my chest was sore in my bath. I shouted to my sister to come quick and showed her that I had breast buds and she got so mad that she didn't talk to me for an hour, because she thought she would be first. I also told my mom who took me to get a training bra. It was only a 28AA but I felt so grown up. My sister wouldn't come though because she was mad. Then in August two months later she got hers. Our first real cup bras we bought together, we were both 32A. Now we are in 8th grade going into ninth next year. I am a 36C and she is 34B but we don't care about competing anymore because we're still really close and we buy bras together xoxo
