Time for a Bra?
Let's take a look. Here are a few things to consider when deciding if it's the right time to buy your first bra.
Do you feel like it is time?
A lot of this will be based on just how you feel. If you feel like you are ready, then let's get you started and get you used to wearing a bra. Don't worry about being the first or the last of your friends to wear a bra. In a few years, I promise you everyone will be wearing one. I am going to let you in on a secret tho.. most adults hate wearing bras. So don't be in a rush - you might get sick of it sooner than you think!
Does your body look or feel different?
Everyone starts to growing breasts at a different times, different grades. If you feel a small lump right behind your nipple or you just feel that your breasts look different than before, these could very well be the first signs. You might not need a bra this very moment, but you should start learning about them.
Does that area feel sore?
You might have experienced some growing pains already, usually in your legs or arms. Since your breasts are a part of your body and it is connected to a muscle, you will most likely feel some pain or soreness in that area. If there is some pain, a padded bra might be a good idea.
