"My bestie doubles up on bras—and for all the wrong reasons"
My best friend is 14 and she's constantly wearing two bras...just so that guys will pay attention to her. But what worries me more is that I've heard that doing that is unhealthy for your breasts. Is that true?
Luckily, there are no health issues associated with wearing two bras, but it can be uncomfortable. Lots of girls wear the wrong bra size, so the best thing to do is get fitted by a professional (your friend can find one at a department store) to find the best bras for your body.
It doesn’t sound like your BFF is wearing two bras because she doesn’t know her size, though. Puberty is a hard time for everyone, and just as girls stuff their bras to make their breasts look bigger, your friend is probably wearing two bras for the same reason. While you can try talking to her about it, it’s probably best just to wait this one out. It’s most likely a phase for your friend, and eventually she’ll be comfortable enough with herself to be a one-bra babe.
