I remember when I got my first cup bra when I was 12 years old and a rising 7th grader. In the middle of a trip to California my mom had to take me to GAP because she told me it was “time for a real bra”. I got two 32A bras and I was kind of proud (I knew that size is pretty small but still felt mature) but I was so embarrassed when my mom told my dad and uncle about me getting bras😳


I am at the end of year 7 and my mum said i needed a bra i have been wearing crop tops for about a year and a half i do not like to talk to my mum about it as i have a little brother but she is totally fine with it. BTW year 7 is age 11-12 for you Americans. If you think you will start your period soon i might not happen for a while i have had discharge for about 2 years and still not happened just warning all you folk.

I got my first bra at the beginning of middle school, I was shopping with my mom for back to school clothes and I saw a bra section in one of the stores. I just told my mom I needed them for school and she didn’t really care or make it awkward so ya that’s it sorry if it was boring.


So... my first bra story is this: I was in year 4. I desperately wanted a bra so I could feel a little more grown-up. It wasn't till year 5 till I got the guts to ask for one. My parents bought a pack of 4 training bras for me, and i was satisfied. They were way too big though 😅. I didn't actually need them till about 8 months later. That's my first bra story. Sorry that it's kinda boring lol.

I am in year seven and don’t even have a crop top yet although I think I could do with a crop top/ bra as my nipples have started to poke through a lot of my tighter tops and when changing for pe I am the only girl without one Most girls started wearing crop tops in year six It is lockdown so I don’t know if I could get one anyway I don’t want to ask my mum as it is embarrassing for me Should I just wait for her to ask me if I want one
