As the other ladies pointed out, there is no set time to get your daughter a bra. If she's very uncomfortable without one, even if there's nothing to fill it, then by all means get her a bra. If she's starting to develop, but has not asked for a bra, you probably want to bring it up and at the least have her wear tank tops under her shirts. Some tanks come with an extra layer to keep nipples from poking out. If her breasts are rounding out then she really should wear a bra.

If your daughter requests a bra, get her one. Even if she has not developed. My 10 yo is a teeny thing, but since the girls at school all wear a bra, she was not comfortable changing for PE without a bra on.
If your daughter is developing breasts, even just buds, it's a good time to bring it up. If she is resistant, maybe try to get her to wear an undershirt instead. If she is agreeable, take her along to pick out what she is comfortable wearing.
"Justice" makes bras in very small sizes (24 band size with no cup) if your child is like mine!

When my 10yo came to me the first day of school and told me all of he friends were in bras but her and could she please get one, what would you have had me say to her, Sonia?
You were not there, so you have no idea if it was a special moment or not. She needed a bra, whether she had breasts to fill it or not. If you care to site a respected authority on the subject that tells me I am wrong and I should have forced my daughter to feel uncomfortable and embarrassed, please do.
