Yes, get her the bra. While many people judge readiness for a bra on age, any girl regardless of age who has started developing or is interested in wearing a bra can wear one. Don't worry about what other people think. If you think she is ready for a bra, then you should be the one to make that decision.
thanks i have decided to buy my daughter a bra, she is 7 and has just started budding thank god im not alone, she wants one that fastens at teh back though , because her friend has one, i didnt get my first bra till i was 11 , they seem to be growing up quicker these days
I agree. Get her the bra. I had gone through puberty at the age of nine and very embarassed about the whole thing because my mom never really dealt with it with me. Good luck to you and have fun!! Bra shopping should be fun and exciting no matter how old you are!
Hi, as a mother of a 27 year old that blossomed early and now a step daughter who is 12, I can offer a nice option. There are cotton camisoles (in all colors that come in XS) that have built in bra that stretches from one side of the camisole to the other, not cups but certainly help hold breast and also create a look under all shirts. My step daughter prefers these over bras, they are long on her but the current look is the longer shirt under the top shirt - so it works great in a couple ways. Just an idea, hope it helps - you can finds these even at Target.
I wore a bra when I was 6 and started my period when I was 8. Some of us are just that way. My niece liked wearing bras when she was little bitty and her mom would buy her the Mary Kate and Ashley bras that were just stretch but had a really pretty design to them. She is 10 now and has needed a bra for about 2 years. Wearing one early on seemed to have helped her make the transition more smoothly.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with allowing your 7 year old to wear a bra. I have an almost 8 y/o and I will make her put one on before we leave the house. She has an atletic build and really has small boobs. I know its crazy but she needs one. Buy her some stretch sports bras, they come in all sizes.
I am so glad you posted this!
My daughter is amost 7, but she is not going through puberty yet. However, she LOVES my bras. I bought her the soft rayon kind that is more like a sports bra but with no cups when she was two years old. Why? She begged like crazy for it in Wal-Mart. She has two and can still wear them. But now, she wants a mommy kind of bra. Now they have training bras with cups, but they had soft material when I was a girl-no foam.
I don't know what to do. I haven't bought her one yet because I think it is too early. However, if she were already developing I would definitely buy it for her. It teaches her self dignity about her body. Don't feel bad about it at all.
if it is needed it is needed. Ignore what other people are saying. I recently read an article where children as young as 5 are starting to go through puperty.
These other people do not know your child you do. Not only that but your doctor said she was going through puberty. It's ok to feel uncomfortable about talking about puberty with your child, but I'd say education about the subject is a whole lot better than being scared to death the day it really hits....
