How to ask my mom for a cup bra?

I know I'm only a kid but I really want other moms advice! I'm sorry I'm on here and not a mom!

I'm 13 years old and as far as my mom knows, I'm still wearing unpadded training bras. Here's the story: when I was 11 I got my first training bras and those were fine until I turned 12 when the band was too small and my nipples showed through. What I did was use the fact that my size only came in padded (not a cup but a lightly padded liner- not to add volume but for nipples hiding) to my advantage. I showed her the new size and she said "oh you don't need padded yet" and I lied to her and said "I know but they are removable, my size only comes in padded" but I had full intention of keeping the pads in without telling her.

Well for about half a year now, the padded training bras are too small in the band and in the cup. I can't do any activities without them bouncing around and hurting. also the cups didn't cover my breasts so if I accidentally hit them, it would hurt cuz there isn't padding all over. So I recently got a target gift card from my orthodontist for referring friends. I used the gift card to order myself a cup bra (I measured my self, coming out as a 28b or a 30a) and I didn't tell my mom, I just started wearing it (I also ordered her a bday gift so that's all she thought I got).

I feel really bad for lying to her on multiple occasions and I really just want that special time where we go shopping for my first "real" bras together! And I need another pair or two.
I thought maybe because you girls yourself are mom's, you might be able to help. Sorry if this is long!

You just need to tell her. Let her know that you have grown since the first bra she bought for you and you want to go and get fitted for a proper bra.
I work in an underwear store so see young girls everyday that need more than a training bra.
