Both my 12 year old and 11 year old girls wear bras and have since they were each 9. They started with the t-shirt type bras and now both wear real bras.
As soon as a girl starts budding, she needs to start wearing a bra of some sort, like one mother commented, for modesty. My girls also wear tank-tops underneath their shirts and over their bras for added modesty. This is their preference and not something that I insisted they do.

I took my daughter to the doctor and she told me that she was developing breast tissue and she and I went to Victoria secret, they measured her up to get the correct bra to help her feel comfortable with bras, they said they would not recommend underwire until she was more developed, my daughter has regular Bras, and the sports as well. It's amazing on how young these girls are developing so early these days.

No trainer bra needed she needs a real cup bra! My 12 year old is in a C cup! So depressing buying her bras. I was sure I was measuring her wrong so I brought her into Victorias Secret to have them measure her just to be sure before I bought her new bras! They grow up too fast! Good luck!

Kids should get training bras when they are around nine when they start to get very small breasts so they get used to it when they start to get bigger and you can see their nipples through a tank top with one of those thin built in bras then it's time for sports bras with a bit of padding. Then when they start to get real breasts but are still developing they can wear regular bras with or without underwire whichever they feel most comfortable in

The number on the size is the inches around her chest, 2 inches in a year of growth is normal. Cup size, what are we talking about? A thick slice of lemon, or half a lemon? Do they move? Then she needs a bra! Nowadays they have cute little sports bras for young girls that offer support and are not as complicated as regular bras! There are also camis with built in bras, I bought some marked down ones at Old Navy during the summer for my 9 yr old who has been budding for about a year now.
And I agree with Mary Svetlik Watkins, be a parent first, then you can be friends, but never forget you are her parent and need to make the right decisions for her.

Um, I'm hoping you mean 34B, and not 43B. Because that would be a huge weight gain (not breast growth) in a year. Assuming you mean 34B, at that size she should probably be wearing a bra for modesty and comfort. If she's more comfortable, you could get her a sports-type bra. Otherwise go buy her some regular 34B bras. She's past the point of wearing a training bra.
Training bras can be used for several purposes. Usually, a training bra is bought for girls just developing. It helps them get used to having something around their chest. It can also be used for sleeping in, and excercising. What I used to do when I was younger, is I would wear a normal bra, with a training bra over it. It gives great support. Especially for her size.
