Big bra debacle

I am growing breasts and they are bigger than my friends. I am like way too young to be actually growing breasts, but I am. The worst part is that I am scared to ask my dad for a training bra since I don’t live with my mom.

I would ask her, but it feels weird to ask my dad. A girl one year older than me has a training bra and her breasts are like flat.

It's embarrassing, and I need help ASAP.

Hey babe,

It must be really stressful having bigger breasts than everyone and to top it all off, living with your dad and feeling like you have to tell him you need a bra! You have two options here: tell your dad you need a bra or grab an aunt, sister, older cousin, or just your BFF and go bra shopping.

If you decide to talk to your dad, write down what you want to say beforehand. Tell him that you feel like you need a bra and ask him if he'll give you some money to go shopping for one. It might be a little awkward at first, but you can do it!

Or you could just tell a trusted older female in your life or your bestie about your bra sitch. I know getting a bra may feel embarrassing at first, but hey, it can actually be really fun. There are all sorts of pretty patterns and colors to pick from. You can find cute, cheapie styles at Target. And what girl doesn't love a new accessory?

So, whatever you decide, go for it! And don't feel awkward. Every girl grows breasts, and we all grow 'em at different rates. You're great just the way you are.
