I have a 8 year old girl step daughter that will be 9 in a week.She doesn't need a bra (not developing anything at all), but wants to wear one beacuse her friend is. Her friend gave her a bra this past weekend. She didnt tell me and hid it from me yesterday like she is embarassed. I tried telling her this morning that she doesn't need to be wearing a bra just yet. I think she is too young and I want to be the one to buy her the first bra, not to wear one a friend gave her. I'm scared she is trying to grow up to fast, and I don't want her to think I'm just being mean, I feel it should be a special time and a developmental thing. I don't let my girls even wear 2 pieces. Does anyone have some advice for me??
