My breasts are small, but I feel I should wear something to cover up. But I don’t want the boys to make fun of me if they see a bra through my shirt. What can I do?
It’s totally normal to feel embarrassed about other people finding out you wear a bra. Boys especially like to tease, and (ugh) even pull bra straps. But if you feel you would be comfortable covering up your breasts, no matter how small, then you should definitely get a bra.
Too give yourself the coverage you need without drawing attention to the fact that you’re wearing an undergarment, never wear a colored or even white bra under a white shirt. The key to camouflaging your bra is to wear one that’s a similar shade to your skin tone. Stay away from prints or patterns on your bras, as well, if you choose to wear a white or light-colored shirt. Unless you’re Lady GaGa, flaunting your bra through your shirt is a major fashion faux pas.
If your bra lines are visible through a fitted-shirt, go for a seamless bra instead, found in most department stores. Every day before you leave for school, check yourself out in the mirror. If you can see your bra—either change your shirt or change your bra. It’s as simple as that!
