This weekend I am taking my girls bra shopping. They have been wearing training bras for a bit now to get comfortable with wearing a bra. But they are growing out of the trainers. I think they are ready for actual bras now. My problem is how do I know what type and size bra to buy for them?

take them to the store and have them try on several bras so that they an see which one fits and feels best for them

Hi, I am twelve I went bra shopping myself this Monday and I got myself a bra guessing which one would fit me in the changing rooms in MARKS AND SPENCER'S in London.. So I was thinking rather then doing it like me you know staffs in the shop/shopping centre.. You can find one of the woman's for your daughters first proper bra and also tell them what size they are wearing at the moment.

if they are shy to have a stranger measure them then you do it.. you measure aroung the ribs and around the breast... the difference between the ribs and breast will give you our cup size.. google it .. its easy.

I found that modern bras for little girls are no longer training bras. We found some sports bras and then JC Pennys had some choices that were excellent. I found that the website for Victorias Secret gave good advice on how to measure, even though they do not carry items for younger girls.

Stores like JCPenney usually have someone in the department who can size them to tell you what size they are. If not then the band should fit snuggly against the back and just try on several of them. Make it a girl's day.

I worked at Kohl's department store for years and got this question a lot. The bras that are in the kids section are also teen bras. The Mudd brand always fit my daughter the best. I hope this helps a little!

Be sure to have them raise their arms and make sure it doesn't slide up. That is a problem with newly developing girls that don't have big enough boobs to keep them down. The ones that have a wider band on bottom are great for active girls.

Take them to a department store. A lot of the good department stores will measure them for free.

Good luck!
