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.

Whenever you want. Typically when there is actually something to PUT in the bra, but there is no harm in a child wearing a soft, cloth bra at any age.

WHy is Sarah's advice so wrong? And why the hostility, Sonia? I actually wholeheartedly agree with Sarah on this one, having been through the teenage years with one daughter already.

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!

Dee, what Sarah recommended is great. There are several 'no cup' bras for young ladies who aren't quite at the development stage yet.

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.

Dee, she is wrong. You have to make the first bra a special moment and not just waisted when u don't actually need one. My get a trainer crop top if your daughter is desperate but don't listen to Sarah

It all comes down to the boob size. Some develop quicker than others and my girl is already moving up sizes quickly. Start off probably when they can fit an AA
