Let's take a closer look at one of the most popular
teenage bra styles...
Teen Sports Bra
The sports bra teen style is perhaps the most important brassiere for young girls to have.
Why? These versatile sports bras are very functional and usually come in soft cotton lycra fabrics (and in many colors) with good support and stretch.
They're designed with simple lines and aren't too fussy or frilly, which most girls tend to avoid when choosing a first training bra.
Young girls are very self conscious about their changing bodies, so it's important to be patient with them when shopping for any preteen bras and intimate apparel.
Another key point to remember - support. Even for girls with smaller breasts, growing breast tissue is delicate and easily irritated.
Sports bras offer good support, as well as minimizing bouncing and painful chafing. Young girls in sports bras will be better protected during high impact exercises like running, baseball, basketball, etc.
