Back to School Bra Fittings
Do you have a little lady in your life that has made some changes over summer? Sometimes these changes feel like they happened overnight. We know - we're Mommin' tweens ourselves right now....
We offer an age appropriate teen bra shopping experience to help her understand more about her changing body as well as offer the best products to accommodate those changes. Her first bra fitting should be comfortable and fun, helping her find confidence and security as she moves into a new year.
Depending on what she has been wearing, if anything, we're happy to give you some advice on the next step. Some girls end up staying with the sporty crop they have already, and others are realize it's time for a style that looks a little more "bra"ish.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Have your tween/teen wear a snug fitting t-shirt that we can measure her over. Getting a close measurement right off the top will help us pinpoint the best size sooner. We will bring different sizes styles for her to try on. Some of the struggles she may face are getting used to a snugger fitting band, or suddenly having shaped cups. Sometimes a slight pad will help to even out her shape, as during these years development rarely happens evenly between the 2 breasts, and she may find one grows faster than the other. Many girls wear heavier clothing or more layers to hide their new shape, but with a positive first bra fitting, we might be able to help her feel more confident and secure as she faces another busy year as school.
Many conventional stores don't offer bands smaller than a 32, but a women's 32A is MUCH too big for a tween frame. Your little lady probably measures closer to a 26 or 28 around her ribcage. We offer products that made created for a child's smaller frame instead of just offering the smallest bra size we can, as well as bralettes or crop style bras to give them some variety and colour options that she may never have had before!
Wearing a proper fitting bra is an adjustment, and it'll take time for her to get used to the new feeling. We're here to offer honest advice and quality products to make her first bra shopping experiences positive and empowering, helping to pave the way to a healthy body image in these important developmental years.
