Should I Wear A Bra?

Bra or bare? Why do women wear bras? Should I wear a bra?


Whether to wear a bra or not, at any stage of development or at any age, is a personal decision. If you're starting to develop breasts and you want to wear a bra, you may want to talk to your mom or an older female relative or friend about possibly getting one.


Some girls like to get training bras as soon as they start developing breasts so they can get used to what it feels like to wear a bra. A training bra can also help cover up your nipples, which may stick out and become more noticeable as your breasts begin to grow.


Depending on how big your breasts are, you might want to get a sports bra too, for gym class and any team sport (except swimming).


Just like breasts, bras come in all different shapes and sizes, and different bras can make your breasts look bigger or smaller. It all depends on what you want.

I got my first bra in fifth. Almost everybody in my school in the fifth grade wore them. My bra was pretty unconvertible at first, but i felt so much more comfortable around people.

I had been wanting to ask my mom if I can wear a bra FOREVER but I had been too scared!!!!! But I am super glad because I DIDN'T HAVE TO ASK HER! SHE ASKED ME! We were at a cabin and she brought me up to the second floor so the rest of the people in my family wouldn't hear (we are the only girls) and she just said: Maybe we should get you a bra sometime soon. Inside I was like FINALLY! But I played it cool (lol) and said: I guess so. NOW I FEEL SO LUCKY THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO ASK!!!!!!

I started wearing bras in 5th grade. I asked my mom and she said sure, if it makes you feel more comfortable. My cousin gives me her old ones. I started wearing padded bras in 6th grade, because when my mom asked me if I was wearing a bra or not and I said yes she said I needed more supportive bras. I'm now in 7th grade and some of the boys call me flat chested but I don't care cuz my mom said she grew at a slower pace. Be comfortable with who u r. Don't let people bother u and be u.

I started wearing a training bra in 4th grade, when I was kinda sticking out. In 5th, I started wearing padded bras, and I was already a 34B.
