Bra shopping for beginners
I really want to wear a bra. How can I ask my mom if it’s OK?
We know how intimidating it can be to approach your mom about bra shopping, especially if mom still thinks of you as her “little girl.” Some moms have a hard time facing the fact that their daughters are growing up and becoming young women. But the thing is, if you have breasts, you need a bra.
The next time you’re passing through the lingerie section of a department store, casually walk over to the bra section, and say, “Mom, do you think you could help me pick out a bra? I’m starting to feel uncomfortable not wearing one.” If she says, “Yes,” great! If she’s hesitant or says, “No way,” maybe you can ease her into the idea by talking her into letting you start out with a sports bra. Pick up something in the athletic department that will fit nicely under your clothes.
