To Sharon Hi Sharon! I just wanted to say GREAT POST and CONGRATULATIONS on getting your first bra!!! Welcome to the club! It sounds like your mom (and the sales lady in the store too!) made you first bra buying experience as nice and as embarrassment-free as possible. About the feelings of both excitement and also nervousness you felt, I had those same feelings when I was getting my first bra too! But in my case it was more like super- happy-excitement combined with a whole lot of embarrassment all at the exact same time! My most nervous and embarrassment-filled moment was when I had to go into the fitting room so the sales lady could measure me for my size,. But like you it turned out to be quick and easy and not embarrassing at all! It turned out I was a size 30 AA and the sales lady suggested a training bra for me, the kind with the stretchy elastic cups that would fit me then and also stretch and grow with me as I developed more.. It turned out it was perfect bra for me and just what I need at the time because about 3 months later I had growth spurt and in a period of about a month I went from a AA size to I think almost an A size and the bra still fit me perfectly and was still comfortable!. One question, now that you've started wearing your bra, how does it feel? Is it comfortable and it is it like how you thought wearing a bra would feel like? I was kind of surprised at first about how wearing a bra for the first time felt. It wasn't uncomfortable, but it felt just a bit strange at first.. I wasn’t used to having something a bit snug around my chest and also covering my buds and even just very slightly supporting and holding them up a bit, .But that feeling only lasted about a week or two and pretty soon I was so used to it that I could almost forget I had it on! Has it been like that for you too?


If I can give any tips when first buying a bra find one that is comfortable for you every one is different when first buying a bra the most comfortable ones to begin with are sports bras and then as you begin to develope find some that are a bit more supportive


Hey everyone! It's Sharon, and I'm super excited to share my recent adventure with you – buying my first bra! Yep, you heard it right. I'm officially entering the world of bra-wearing, and let me tell you, it's been quite the experience. So, it all started when my mom noticed that I was growing and suggested that it was time to get my first bra. I have to admit, I felt a mix of excitement and nervousness. I mean, choosing a bra sounds like a big deal, right? Well, turns out it's not as daunting as I thought, and I'm here to spill all the details. First things first, my mom and I decided to make it a special day out. We picked a weekend and headed to the mall. I couldn't believe there were so many stores dedicated to lingerie – it was like a whole new world! We went into a store that seemed friendly and not too overwhelming. Once inside, a super nice salesperson asked if we needed help. My mom explained that I was looking for my first bra, and she immediately put us at ease. She explained that there are different types of bras for different needs, and we started with something simple – a training bra. It's basically like a beginner's bra, perfect for girls like me who are just starting out. Then came the fun part – choosing the style and color! I had no idea there were so many options. Lace, cotton, patterns, and plain – it was like picking out clothes, but tinier. I decided to go with a cute and comfy cotton bra with a subtle pattern. It felt like a good choice for a beginner like me. Next up was the fitting room. The salesperson measured me to find the right size. It was quick and not at all embarrassing – they do it all the time, so no need to worry! Trying on different bras was a bit weird at first, but it's important to find one that fits just right and feels comfortable. I must say, finding the perfect bra felt like a little victory. I left the store feeling proud and grown-up. It's amazing how a small piece of clothing can make you feel so different. My mom and I even celebrated with a little treat – ice cream! It was the perfect way to end our special day. Now, as I wear my first bra, I can't help but feel a sense of independence and a bit more confident. It's a reminder that growing up comes with new experiences, and it's okay to embrace them. So, here's to the next chapter of my teenage journey – one bra at a time!
