From my personal experience, I think I can say that, for my daughter, the issue of buying her first bra felt particularly embarrassing and bothersome. To make her feel more confident, I told her about my own experiences from the time when I was her age, and I did my best to gently prepare my Basia for the shopping for her “own first bra”. When she felt comfortable and safe enough, we looked through and discussed the different models of teen bras together. I explained to her that the size and position of breasts depends on the individual, but one thing is universal – at the stage when the breast tissue is forming, the young woman does not yet need underwires, since their job is “to stabilise breasts”. For a teen, underwires may be uncomfortable, unpleasant and unhealthy.
Then, I showed her how to properly measure her size under the bust. This allowed Basia to avoid any awkward situations in the store. Finally, we set a date for our bra shopping… :)In the store, she tried on various models. We started off with the TBC, and then followed through to the TBM. Selecting the right model is grounded in each young girl’s personal impressions, both physical and visual (the cups have different shapes). In this respect, Basia decided that she felt more comfortable in the TBC.Mums often wonder when is the right time to change the size of the bra. This question is an important one. The breasts of young women develop in different paces, so naturally I cannot advise everyone universally.
You just need to observe and look for the moment when the first one, the AA size bra, becomes a bit tight – when you can see delicate marks on the skin where the edge of the bra is. Frequently, girls won’t openly tell you about their developing breasts, so the Mum has to be on the lookout herself to decide it’s time to change the bra for a bigger cup size – BB. This second time, too, I recommend trying on both models. The fact that your daughter liked one model better the first time does not mean she will like it better trying it on now, too.The next important moment is the change to CC – the final size before moving on from the young girls’ section. On this last change, we chose the comfortable moulded TBM bra.
I think that a part of being a Mum is to be attentive to and mindful of the changes happening in your teen’s body.
After all, selecting their first bra is the first step on their way towards Womanhood, and there is no other person who will hear and understand the voice of a young Woman better than her Mum.”

PS: It is particularly important that you ask your daughter about her impressions and needs when she is trying on her first bras.
We recommend these moulded foam cups particularly for girls who have sensitive nipples.
No stitching or edges inside the cup make it possible for the cup to gently embrace the entire surface of the breast, which makes it so comfortable it becomes “unnoticeable”.
Soft foam padding in the cups protects delicate breasts, especially during physical education classes.
For older girls, we included delicate stitching which additionally reinforces the cup and provides support without sacrificing the softness.
A particular advantage of our teen bras is that they have no underwires. Instead, we included additional non-pressure stitching to ensure maximum support and comfort. This aspect is especially important, considering that a girl’s breasts are continuously developing and should not be constricted by absolutely anything.
