Most girls fall somewhere in between.
Wearing a teen training bra for the first time, alot of girls find themselves training bra embarrassed ...and uncomfortable for a young girl.
The world of
preteen bras and intimate apparel can feel strange and take some getting used to at first.
Training bras can wrinkle or gap, the band can ride up, or dig into the chest or worse still pop open unexpectedly if not fastened properly. The hook and eyes can chafe and be uncomfortable.
Straps can be too tight and hurt, or too loose and slide off. And of course anyone even slightly past puberty has one or two first bra stories they'd love to forget!
A teen first bra also known as a first bra is for young ladies whose breasts have started to develop.
There is no right or wrong age as girls grow at different rates, though usually it happens anywhere from ages 8 through 12.
Girls training bras support and protect growing breast tissue and at the same time smooths and shapes the figure.
Plus, a brassiere or bralet that fits well gives a girl a boost of self confidence when she's wearing a T-shirt or tighter top.
If a young girl's breasts are already fully developed, it's better to bypass a first training bra and choose one of the many womens styles available.
When choosing any preteen lingerie for the first time keep in mind that certain styles like an underwire push up bra doesn't make sense (too sexy and too uncomfortable) for a little girl.
Opt for something more comfortable and practical the first time like a seamless sports bra.
This bra style is available in a great range of colors sure to please even the pickiest of little girls!
Why? Delicate breast tissue needs support and protection during day to day activities, and especially during high impact exercises like jogging, skiing, tennis, etc.
Another very popular teen training bra style is the zip front sports bra. Available in various cotton, microfiber and nylon blends it's known for stretchy support, softness, flexibility and overall comfort. A good all round choice!
