I was nervous for my fitting cuz it was awkward with my mum but when the lady brought out the cupped ones i had to suppress a smile. Im 12 and im a 30a


It started when I didn’t fit in some of my clothes! I was so upset and was seeing if I was getting fat but I really wasn’t. I didn’t think much of it until my mum was bought me clothes and they didn’t fit. I got so angry and was shouting at my mum and was so upset. My mum of course as caring as she is talked to me and told me I was getting older and so was growing breasts. She told me it’s all natural. However I hated wearing the bras. It felt uncomfortable at first but now it’s just all comfortable. My advice is talk to someone when your growing breasts adulys who have been through the same thing will understand what you have been through




Hi , I got my first bra when I was 10 .Me and my family went shopping for new school stuff but whilst we did that me and my mum went to M&S and tried on tons of bras although most of them had a lot of padding on but we finally managed to find some that fitted me ...I was a 30AA so quite big considering I was in year 5 ...The bra I got had no padding but it did have a clip at the back so it wasn't like those croptop things .I would definetly recommend that you have at least a croptop by year 6 going up to year 7 .Bye Lunabear1066 .


I got my first bra when my mum went shopping and she was like here try this on. I was 1o. I was 30 AA now I'm 32AA or 34AA. I nearly 12 now

I got my first bra when I was 11. It was a 28AA. A few months later I grew out of it (red marks), and now I wear a 30A. Recommended shops: Pink, Marks and Spencer's and Debhanams.
