Crop top girl

I only wear a croptop


It's alright to be different i am like that 2 😃


I was 10 when I got my first bra. Here is how it went... I was in year 5 and it was sports class and we were doing athletics i was doing star jumps when my blond started going EVERYWHERE and I was hoping the boys wouldn't notice but then they all pointed at me saying I had giant blobs and I felt really embarrassed 😳 so when I got home I asked my mom to buy me some bras so we went to Tescos and got some. I am now 11 and where A cup bras ☺


So I was about to get my first bra I was 9 well it was a crop top and I was scared and embarrassed I wore it and I felt like they was growing more so I got some more now I’m 12 and my boobs are bigger than anyone’s it’s sad but I like being different


When i was buying my first bras, the lady in the line in front of me and said ''you getting your first bras, my daughter did that last week'' her daughter was older than me and it was really awkward.


I remember when I was in year 6 and I was about 10, almost 11. I started feeling a bit itchy around the nipples and I told my mum about this. She said that I should start wearing these crop bras that were meant for my older sister but were too small. I wore them, but I kept growing and I really wanted to go bra shopping for some new ones. So, I asked to do that for my birthday and she said yes! I was so happy that day!

You don't know who

I got my first bra at the weekend. It's non padded. I was too scared to get fitted so I tried on a 28aa and I physically couldn't get it on. So then I tried on a 32aa and I still had to have it on the middle setting then we bought them. There you go that's my uninterested first bra story.
