I am from the US too! I figured out that a crop top is a under shirt in the UK! Have a good day girls Xxx Abby

In reply to :

@Just a little confused : a crop top can be two things. It can be a top which shows your belly button, but on here, when most girls say crop top they kind of mean a small bra, a bit like a sports bra. It is basically like a vest, which only covers the boob area, so a modesty thing for when you are not yet ready for a bra. Hope that helped you - Cassie Coconut xx

just a little confused

Hi so i am american which i do not know if this actually affects my question but what is a crop top? is it like the shirt type of crop top or like the longer bras or maybe like athletic tops i am kinda confused and the internet is not helping any. also i am not like a little kid or anything i wear bras i am just curious reading all of your post.


Hey Rabbit lover, great story.! I think your mum is really cool the way she handled getting your first bra! First, for asking you, rather than you having to ask her for a bra. And secondly, for measuring you herself to find out what size you needed. It's not big deal for me now, but for my very first bra, I had to get measured in the store by the sales lady and that was a bit of an awkward and a somewhat 'red faced' moment for me! LOL! Also, I think the the way you handled the whole thing was really cool as well! Wondering, what kind of bras did you get... like a small, actual 'cup bra', or like a 'sports bra', or like me, for my first bra, a stretchy ''grow-cup' style training bra? Regardless of the size, the type or the style, a girl's very first bra is always quite special and something to be proud of!


Nowww 😒😡🤮


sooper bored keep storys comin. Btw make them intresting

tip 4 u

ever wonder how to ask your mom for a bra, do this. Get one of your mums bras and make sure your mum is alone. then go into her room with your chest stuck out and say to her. Mum I found this in my dresser, is it yours? she will probably say yes and look at your chest. Then she will notice that you need a bra hope this helps xxx
