I’m sure every girl can recall the moment they realized they required a bra because it will always hold a special place in their heart and connect them with a special memory.
As we all know, buying your first bra can be a stressful and uncertain experience for a young woman. We are here to help and guide you on the way to your first new bra!
Know the basics
The first sign of breast development is the appearance of small bumps (nipples) under the nipple area. Some girls may have noticed these bumps by the age of 8-10 years, but most girls develop breasts between the ages of 10-14, and it’s pretty normal to be late as every one of us has a different and unique body. So, if you have a daughter, don’t worry if she’s late in developing her breasts. The most important thing is that you support her with love and care.

What bra type should you start with?
Bras are a big deal, but choosing your first bra is an even bigger deal.
Start with bralettes
Teenagers who are ready to wear their first bra are best suited for bralettes. Bralettes combine a simple aesthetic with the comfort of a sports bra offering the best of both worlds. Bralettes are much more comfortable than a regular bras for girls who are going to experience their first bra because they lack underwires and are either lightly padded or have no padding at all.
When to choose a sports bra?
Sports bras are ideal for teenagers who play sports or have an active lifestyle. Sports bras offer more support and help reduce breast tissue movement during physical activities.
When should you choose padded bras?
To prevent nipples from showing, padded bras are your savior. Padded bras provide an extra layer of comfort and support and are ideal for teens who are just starting to wear a bra and need coverage.
