HOW TO BRA SHOP FOR YOUR BUDDING T(W)EEN

Between all the colours, sizes, fits, cuts, and padding options, bra shopping for your preteen or teen can be tricky — especially when it comes to their very first bra. But before you start to panic, we’re sharing our tips, tricks, and top picks to make this experience far more pleasurable, and way less overwhelming, for the both of you!

Some girls are surprisingly excited to shop for their first bra. Maybe it’s because their friends have already started wearing them, they have older sisters, or they’re at the point where they need one. Whatever the cause may be, here is the BraTopia guide on bra-shopping for your budding tween and teen. Don’t forget, fittings at BraTopia are always free! Click here to book yours.

NOT READY FOR A “REAL” BRA?

While some girls will happily want to go bra-shopping, not every girl is going to share the same enthusiasm. Developing breasts can be awkward and painful, and there’s a good chance your daughter is feeling uncomfortable with all these changes. Perhaps she has already started to hunch over, lose interest in playing sports, or compare her body to others. Remember to proceed with caution and care as this is a sensitive time in her life.

If the idea of wearing a “real” bra mortifies your tween, or she just isn’t there in terms of development, then don’t underestimate the power of a great sports bra or bralette!

Here are our top tween + teen-friendly bra shopping recommendations:

  • MOUNTAIN EQUIPMENT CO-OP (MEC)
  • JOE FRESH
  • TJ MAXX GROUP
  • OLD NAVY

And remember, when it comes to handling the topic of bra shopping with your daughter, let her lead the conversation! Not only will it make her feel empowered and in control, but she might even start to feel a little more comfortable with her body.
