First Bra Guide to Preteen Lingerie
The First Bra
Young girls begin to develop breasts usually between the ages of 8-12, depending on how fast their bodies' develop.
Some girls mature earlier, some later. Body development varies from girl to girl. There is no right or wrong age, as it is all up to Mother Nature.
Breast tissue is very tender as it grows, and young girls tend to be extremely self conscious and sensitive about their changing bodies.
Seemingly innocent comments and teasing can easily be misunderstood by today's ultra sensitive teen girls, and their feelings can be easily hurt.
In the majority of cases it's safer to be aware of their feelings and leave the first bra stories for a later time when they are not as self conscious.
Always be supportive and choose your words carefully when talking to young girls and teens about the changes they are experiencing in their bodies.
Since determining bra size can be confusing, it's a good idea to have a professional fitter do the measuring.
This free service is available in the lingerie section of most department stores and lingerie specialty stores.
They'll be able to suggest, bra styles, support and sizes. They'll also be able to demonstrate the correct steps in putting on a brassiere.

bra size calculator.
Cotton bras - A cotton bra in different colors trimmed with a bit of lace is an excellent choice for a girls first bra.
These girl bras are soft, stretchy and won't chafe against the delicate breast tissue.
Look for cotton blended with lycra or spandex fabrics for a better and more comfortable fit.
They offer good support for everyday light to moderate activities, including physical education, jogging, cycling, yoga and dance.
Like many training bras, they are available in small, medium, large and xlarge sizes. Look for adjustable bra styles that allow you to customize the fit.
