It's almost a right of passage for young girls on the cusp of womanhood, and a part of growing up.
We all have intimate apparel and lingerie stories that we would rather forget.
Some are reallllly embarrassing, some very cute, some funny, and some are really heartwarming...
Over the years we've shared and been asked to share with our customers, friends and family members. So, without further ado, here are a few of our favorite first bra stories.
"I remember just being completely mortified about my first bra. I didn't want anyone to know that I was wearing a brassiere AT ALL.
My mum used to really embarrass me by wrapping up my
training bras for my birthday and Christmas...no boxes, just the wrapping. I'd open up my presents and the bras would tumble out. Everyone would see and laugh. I was soooo embarrassed!"
"First day I walked into the kitchen wearing my first bra and my brother snapped the back of it and said hey you're growing up kid."
"Embarrassing bra stories? You bet. I got my first bra when I turned 10. Mom decided we'd all go to the department store together.
I was trying on all these different bras trying to figure out how they fit, mom kept wanting to see, and then the worst thing happened - my baby brother barged into the change room and ran off with some of the training bras I'd been trying. The sales lady was chasing him.
It's funny now, but it wasn't funny then."
"My older sister and I went to Victoria's Secret.
She was really cool about it and helped me pick out a nice pink lace and cotton bra with pretty lace trim and matching panties that said "LOVE"...I can still remember it."
"I remembered when my mom took me for a first bra i don't want to fit it cause im so embarassed and i only wear it to school."
"I was 13 years old when I got my first brassiere. It was in the summer time and I really wanted one for back to school, but mom said I was still too small, so she went to Walmart and got me a tank top camisole with a built in bra. I wore it every day for 2 weeks straight!"
"When I was 9 my breasts were huge and I was so self conscious. The boys at school used to point and laugh at me.
My teacher phoned my mom and the next day we went bra shopping. I needed a DD. I started wearing turtle neck sweaters, I was so shy."
"When I got my first bra I was 11, going into 7th grade. My boobs were a decent size. I really grew, now I'm 14 and my boobs are BIG.
"Embarrassing bra stories ? Not really, I was lucky, my auntie knew how self conscious I am so she took me bra shopping and explained all about
bra sizes. I found out I was a 32b. I got 2
teen bras and the matching panties. I felt so grown up!"
"Really embarrassing bra stories?" Oh ya, I thot I was so kewl when I got my first one in grade 7.
I had had it for awhile when I decided to wear it and show off. I wore it to gym class, it was one of those sports ones, one of those white cotton bras with pretty flowers on it. The other girls started laughing and I couldn't figure out why. Gym teacher told me I was wearing it inside out and the snaps at the back were showing. I felt like such an idiot."
