Breasts: Things are changing!

 

One of the first signs of puberty is breast development. Many girls start to get "breast buds" (mounds or bumps around or under the nipple) at 11, but that's average. If you're a few years younger or older than 11 when you develop breast buds, that's totally normal too.

 

Next stage in breast development, your entire breast will start to get larger. Your nipple and areola (the area around the nipple) will get darker and form a separate, small mound. This whole process, from "flat" to "finish," takes from 23 years. Some girls develop more quickly than others, and it's not unusual for one breast to grow faster than the other. Sometimes it can take a while for things to "even out." But even adult women have one breast that's bigger than the other.

 

Breasts get a lot of attention during puberty because they're new, and not everyone gets them at the same time. Remember that everyone's breasts are different. What's important is the way you feel about your breasts and that, whatever their shape or size, you come to accept them as another unique and beautiful part of you!

smile1720158- I agree, that is totally unfar! But, you should NEVER resort to violence. First, just ignore her and walk away. If that doesnt work, tell her to just stop it (i would have a friend with you, so you have more confidence) And, if those two dont work, ask an adult what to do. They have gone through this, and can help. Well, hope I helped and hope she stops!

@Shirley curly - sometimes ur boobs cantend to be tender or even hurt when someone touches or hits your boobs. What I'm saying is that your boobs are growing or there just tender. Watch out! Wear a paded bra. Hope this helped :D

@isabelita 13 - dont worry. u should definitely stand up to this teasing girl. she does not have any rights to tease u since (i might have understood this wrong) but you do wear a bra cuz you need it and she doesnt need one but wears one. Talk to her, if its too scary then you can get a bunch of your friends who are also being teased and talk to her. If wearing a bra makes YOU comfortable then do it. It doesnt really matter what she says. :) hope this helps

Isabelita13: first things first that girl that has a bra shouldn't be talking. Bran's are really made for protection or so your "boobs" won't show. Usually when your first start budding it you won't have big "boobs" . When I started to wear a bra I kind of didn't need it. I was budding but they were small. Now that my boons are showing not saying there big I wear a 34A aleast idk what size but if you want you can wear a padded bra. That is used for protecting. HOPE THIS HELPS :p Also I'm here to help :)
