Naomi, when should I start wearing my first bra?
Do I need to start wearing a bra when that happens?
You can start wearing a bra whenever you feel comfortable. Most girls wear one once they bud because their nipples could start to show through their clothing.
Yeah, I think I want one because I have to change in a locker room with a lot of girls for gym class. I don’t want to be made fun of.
Getting a bra for gym class is a great idea, but you don’t only get one because you don’t want to be made fun of. Get one when you are ready, and you should make sure you are getting the right kind.
There are different kinds?... lol
There are many different kinds of bras, just like there are many different kinds of women. A lot of large chested women don’t like the feel of underwire so they don’t wear bras with underwire.
lol is that even possible? And how do I know which one to get?
I was told that girls who don’t wear bras are trying to get attention.
Well, breasts do draw a lot of attention. They are all over magazines, and music videos. But breasts are for more than just looking nice, and since it’s part of a woman she is allowed to present herself in whatever way she wishes.
If you decide to get one the first thing you should do is figure out your bra size.
Ok, that’s good to know. How do I find my bra size?
You can go to the ladies section in a department store and ask to be measured, or you can measure yourself. If you need help measuring yourself you can ask a friend or an adult you trust to help you.
Okay thx Naomi.
No problem, girl. Let me know if you have any more questions. The more you know the less puberty will be a pain in the busts.
