The Training Bra Guide
The Training Bra Guide - Buying a first bra or starter bra may seem like a quick and easy decision, but it's not as easy as you would think.
Let me show you how...First, you need to know your
correct bra size.
I always recommend being fitted by a professional bra fitter about twice a year, or after a noticeable growth phase.
It's important to remember that this size guide is to be used as a guideline.
You should always wear the training bra that feels most comfortable for you.
Once you've found the right first bra size, you need to consider the different
types of bras. What do you need it for? Everyday wear to school? Physical education? After school sports? Or, do you need it for support?
You'll probably want to start out with one or two different styles of training bras, then gradually add more as you need or want.
The Training Bra Styles
Teen Sports Bra - Girls sports bra styles are an excellent choice for
first bras, and the most popular for growing teens. Why?
First, because they are usually made of cotton with a touch of lycra and quite stretchy and very comfortable.
Also, young girls in sports bras find they have better support than regular brassieres.
It's important to remember that maturing breast tissue is soft and delicate and needs to be properly supported during high impact activities, such as running, basketball, volleyball, tennis, etc.
Even girls with smaller breasts who would typically wear a small bra should invest in one or two cotton sports bras or high impact sports bras, especially if they take physical education class or are active in sports.
Cotton is a natural fabric that is soft and comfortable, and I recommend choosing a cotton preteen bra with a bit of lycra which gives them a nice stretch and better fit.
bras are available in both wirefree and underwire styles, and come in both unpadded and padded varieties, depending on your preferences.
