Lingerie For Young Teens

Bandeau Bras

Teens and tweens love this simple style that works as both a bra and a great layering piece that can be mixed and matched with their favorites.

With a soft and stretchy fit that's comfy to wear, a bandeau bra in microfiber or cotton spandex blend can be worn under any strapless top or dress, or layered under clothing for additional modesty.

One piece bandeaus are easy to wear and relatively inexpensive to buy,  making them a great pick to mix and match with wardrobe favorites.

Style Tip – Opt for a bandeau in a bright, fun shade like hot pink or lime green, or choose a cute print and let it peek through for an adorable layered look that’s trendy and colorful.

Convertible Bras

Teens will love it when you introduce them to the convertible bra. A hard-working hidden gem with interchangeable straps, this versatile bra goes from a classic:

  • 2-strap style

  • to strapless
  • to halter
  • to crisscross back
  • to one shoulder

... giving you 5 amazing bras in one. Young tweens and tweens will be able to wear this classic under any strappy or trendy top that a regular bra won’t work with. With a convertible bra the sky is the limit.


With a trendy look that’s super cute and great for everyday wear, what’s not to love about boy shorts. More stylish than regular briefs, they’re ultra-comfy and designed to stay in place and not ride up.

And, with full coverage that’s not too sexy or revealing, they’re one of the most popular panty styles that moms and teens can both agree on.

Boy shorts in cotton spandex blends or microfiber offer a smooth almost invisible look under any clothing.

Teen approved colors include basics like black, grey, white, and latte, while bright lively shades like fuschia, teal and yellow are exciting picks for teen fashionistas who crave a little more pizzaz.

Popular culture, social media and entertainers like Paris Hilton and Britney Spears have enormous influence on young girls who buy intimate apparel.

Camisoles and Cami Sets

When it comes to must-have lingerie for young teens and tweens, camsioles are at the top of the list.

Infinitely reliable and versatile, a multi-purpose camisole adds an extra layer under clothing for warmth or modesty, and can also be worn as a tank top for layering under lower cut shirts, open front cardigans, or sheer tops.

Skip the basic shades on this one and opt for a cool print like stripes or polka dots that add a pop of color that’s fun for teens to wear under their favorite clothing.

Teens and tweens are wearing sports inspired clothing everywhere and loving it - leggings, cool sneakers, baseball caps, funky sweatshirts and easy to wear sports bras.

How to choose on trend lingerie for young teens - styles that they'll love? Look for sportier racerback bras with unique crisscross straps and sportswear details like stripes.

Bold shades like neon green or pink are perfect for physical activities and under favorite tops for a splash of color.
