What is the appropriate age to start wearing a training bra?
When should a girl start wearing a training bra? Do you base it on age or physical need? What if she doesn't need one yet but whats to wear one because her friends do?
My daughter is 7 and this just recently came up and I have no idea what to do.
Personally, I didn't really notice when my friends started and my mom started me when it was physically needed. :)
I don't believe there is an age to start. I believe when your daughter begins to develop there then it is time to start looking for training bra's. That would also be a great chance to connect through a mother daughter shopping experience. I totally look forward to the day for my little girl Mindy!
I had a few friends growing up that started wearing them at around 9 or 10, but some didn't start until high school because they just didn't develop that quickly. I think a lot of it depends on when they start to develop, but I'm sure there are some social cues in there as well.
My daughter never really wore a training bra. She did wear sports bras though when the breast buds became noticeable. She may have been 7 or 8 when that happened but I don't really remember.
