Training bra

My daughter is only 9yrs old. She is developing earlier and is very self-conscious . She does not want to look at bras but we need to start. Any ideas to help calm her fears?

My response:
Rather than bra, try a camisole top? She may feel less self conscious in something like that, or a sports bra? Justice makes regular bras, and sport bras in very small sizes and they are very soft material.

If she's not ready for bras, maybe you can get her some tank tops to wear under her shirts to help hide her budding breasts. Look for the ones that have a built-in extra layer if she needs a little more coverage. At some point, she will need to get a bra, but try to wait until she's more ready if possible. Let her know there's nothing to be afraid/ashamed of. Ask her why she's afraid. Maybe she sees girls at school being teased or boys flicking their bra straps. Tell her that those people are very immature, and she should walk away from anyone like that and not give them the power to hurt her.
