What Kind of Bra Do I Need?

Published: March 22, 2017
Dear TeenHealthFX,
Hello, I am 13 and I believe I am between stage 2 and 3 of breast development. I currently wear trainer bras to cover my nibs, but I don't feel comfortable wearing them anymore and it's not supporting me. Should I get a real one, or a sports bra or something? Thank you. :)

Dear What Kind of Bra Do I Need?,

In deciding on what type of bra to get next, TeenHealthFX advises you to think about what will be most supportive and most comfortable for you. To help you figure this out check out the TeensHealth article, Finding the Right Bra, the Teen Vogue article, How to Find Your Bra Size, and the Center for Young Women’s Health article, Breast Health: Buying a Bra. If you still have questions or concerns after checking out these articles, we recommend that you speak to a parent, extended family member, parent of a friend, school nurse, or any other trusted female who can provide you with the guidance you need (since they once went through the same thing!). And if you’re still stuck, please feel free to write back to TeenHealthFX!
