Naomi, when should I start wearing my first bra?

Naomi

Well, every girl is different. Most girls start to wear training bras when their breasts begin to develop, and their nipples bud. This usually happens when a girl is between the ages of 8 and 13.

Gabby

Do I need to start wearing a bra when that happens?

Naomi

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.

Gabby

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.

Naomi

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.

Gabby

There are different kinds?... lol

Naomi

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.

Some women don’t like push up bras, so they’ll wear triangle bras. Some women only wear sports bras, and some women don’t even wear bras at all!

Gabby

lol is that even possible? And how do I know which one to get?

Naomi

Depending on how large your breasts are you should probably start with a training bra, or a sports bra. And yes, some women don’t wear bras at all. It’s totally up to the women.

Gabby

I was told that girls who don’t wear bras are trying to get attention.

Naomi

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.

Gabby

Ok, that’s good to know. How do I find my bra size?

Naomi

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.

Gabby

Okay thx Naomi.

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.

Gabby

lol stop
