Best Bra for a Tween

Well, it's happened. My granddaughter is growing up and it's time for her first bra. Which stores will measure her for a good fit. We want this experience to be a celebratory "Welcome to Womanhood!"

Nordstrom is the best

Although, I live far from Nordstrom, so I have had to seek out other stores. I have had great luck at a small lingerie store not far from home. They carry styles appropriate for all ages. You might want to check out some stores like those. Oh, and they have a great program where you buy 10 bras and they give you 20% of the average of your purchases to spend.

Times are changing -- I wouldn't take her to a stuffy department store.

Justice has adorable tween bras, and they'll do a fitting for her. And it will be FUN!

I second Justice. That's where we took my granddaughter.

Is she girly or sporty? My dd 8 actually started needing something under her school polos. She is a sports girl so she loves Nike sports bras. I will let her stick with those until she gets actual boobies. Haha.

Mine prefers sports bras as well. She's an average sized 12 year old and I've found that xxs adult sized sports bras are generally a good fit. She also likes all of the funky prints and colors and the fact that they feel like wearing a bathing suit.

I second Justice as well. When my DD was in 4th grade we got her the kind of bras that were just like half camis with straps...no padding at all. From there, I got her the sports bras with a little padding so there was no "peek a boo" in t-shirts. Now she is 13 and wearing regular bras, but I still get them at Justice. They have lots of cute styles for all sizes.

Don't know about your GDD, but my DD would have been mortified at a big production about getting a first bra.

I went to kohls and they had a nice display of half cami style bras (no closures, just pull over your head like a shirt). They had very light, removable padding. They were meant for adults, so I just picked out the "xs" size for her. It worked just fine. I think they were "jockey" brand. They do have a girl's underwear aisle, too, but it liked these better. Right now, DD is only choosing to wear it under certain shirts, which is fine.

I remember when I was a kid I couldn't wait to get a bra, my daughter is the total opposite. I could only get her a bra by taking her to justice and getting those cute cami ones. I guess it depends on her attitude. If she's appresensive justice is definitely the way to go!

Another vote for Justice! When my daughter started wearing a bra we had a difficult time finding the right fit. Justice was perfect. It's a trendy little store with all the "in" styles for young girls. If you give them your phone number they will start sending you 40% off coupons on the entire store. Definitely go to Justice!
