I wore crop tops until I was about 11 and we walked into m&s and I asked my mum what we we're getting and she said underwear. I thought for her but it was for me. 😂 We went in and the adults ones were a bit too big so we went to the kids section and there were some kiddy bras. They we're living the proper bras I wear now, but smaller cups. They were a 30aa. I wore them for about a year and then we went again. My mum just said, "we need to get you some new bras" and I was just there like ok... We went and I got fitted. I thought it was gonna be really bad, but it wasn't. They we're living really nice and barely touched you at all. The ones I wear now are 32b


I got my first bra from m & s. It was a non wired non padded bra (like a crop top with hooks). I was at the shop with my mum (It was a few days before I started year 7 so I was 11) and we were just walking past and my mum picked them up and said “let’s buy you these for secondary school as everyone will be wearing them by this time” so we bought them and I was a 28aa then about 9 months later it started getting a bit small so we went to new look and I got a padded bra (idk what size it was but I was 12 when I got it) and then about 7 months later they started to get to small so me and my mum went back to m&s (I was 13) and I got measured and I was a 30a/b (I got some a bras and some b) and that’s my story. I’m now a 30b xoxo


My first bra I got when I was like 9 I think, it was just a few bras, that came in light pink, grey and white (more like thin training bras) and I remember being so excited about them, your first bras are exciting


It is a bit embarrassing at start but then you just have to realax and it will be ok so don't worry about it. I'm 30AA and I would recommend the m&s angel brand there really good for first bras

ima help you

DON' WANT TO ASK FOR A BRA? if you are scared to ask for one or embarrassed, then try to 'make an excuse' - what I mean is just say to your mum ( or whoever ) that 'my crop top/ vest don't fit anymore or is too tight and it hurts can you get a bra for me?' and try not to draw much attention to it by asking for a bra 24/7 unless you really do need it

To Help me please :)

What you should do is get a cute small storage box put 2 in there and if you have to was them at your mums. ;) :)
