I was about 9 when i got my very first training bra, my mom didn’t want to get me it but finally decided to. By the time I had turned 10 I got my first proper bra size. It wasn’t padded (it was more like a training bra sewn in a triangle at either side). 6 months later I got a modesty bra and wore that for a while. I then got my first proper padded cupped bra and my sizes kept moving on up.


I am 10 now, i got my first bra when i was 9 it was a verrrry tiny and short one with a V neck, now ia m an a cup and wearing soft cup bras...


I wish I had a bra 😭😭


I got my first padded bra today! i am 13, i know it is embarassing to talk to your mom but it is worth it


I got my first bra in the summer of 6th grade because I begged my mom to finally buy me one I felt like I was the coolest person in the world later on I had to change bras every 2 months through out 7th grade I went from a A to a C I’m now in 8th and and I’m a C/D I wish I could go back to a A tho :(


hey, i got my first real bras a few months ago. i had been wearing crop tops/training bras for a couple years and i was really scared to ask my mum for a bra but i finally said it and she thought it was a good idea, and we were already out so i decided it was a good time to ask and then we went bra shopping and now i wear soft cup moulded bras and they feel soooo much better :))


I had crop top bras when I was 8, that was exiting for me. I am now 11 and have bralets, bras with padding but no wire and a proper bar with no padding.
