8-11 Year Olds Wear BRAS? Should They Wear Bras In Such A Young Age?

As soon as a young girl starts showing a larger chest and her breasts have started to develop, she will need a bra. Some young females are wearing bras as early as eight or nine, while some females develop more slowly and will not need a bra until they are 14 or 15. It depends on individual body development, hereditary influences as well as diet and exercise. Young girls who are especially athletic may experience a slower development than other girls their age. Hereditary influences determine much of the shape of a young girl’s body. If her grandmother and mother developed at an early age, then most likely she will as well. Diet will add pounds as puberty advances. Some people believe that this added weight is 'baby fat' when in reality it is the female body preparing to become fertile. Breast development is an indication that a girl’s body is becoming mature enough to become fertile. Smaller breasted women find that they do not have as many back problems as women who are large breasted. Large breasted women should always wear a support bra that helps take the weight of their upper body off of the upper and central part of the back.

My Story! X
When I was 10 and half, my mum got me a set if crop tops to wear because I had bit bigger than breast buds and were showing through top. And I was going into year 6 (grade 6 I think) and I didnt want to be picked on- logic here?
By Feb 2010 (Was just over 11) they were getting bigger and annoying when I jumped- My mum bought me a softcup 34A bra. To be fair, I didnt actually wear it for a while though.
August 2010-
Bigger and more annoying still 34A.
Went shopping with gran on day, bought new one- was underwired btw, but comfy! It was white/cream with black dots! Was lightly padded too.
Late August- School clothes shopping for new school! Aaaagh!
School P.E tops- white REALLY see through, happened to be wearing my spotty one. Guess what happened next? Bra shopping. GULP! Got 4 more bras. 2 unpadded white bras 34A- p.e! Lol. BRIGHT blue one= lush! And black one with pink dots.
And I am Still 11 wearing bras. I hat walking around without one, it's weird, except bedtime:)......
So guys, let your daughters wear them ONLY if necessary and make sure she is at least wearing sports/training by secondary! She will not want to be picked on for not having one.

Bye peeps! Xx

I am actually 15  and I started wearing one 2 yeaars ago...
I needed it when I wuz 10 .. But I wuz embarrased(I went through a lot sometimes I would wear aabout 3 shirts so nothing would show....)...I didn`t want to be made fun of ..so I would wear jackets ALLL the time...and I live in FLORIDA which didn`t help much ...lol (;
it didn`t help in pe either..I would run or jog and I would feel pain and my breasts would move .... :/
if  you needed it ..wear it ...everyone is different and just because some develop faster than others that doesn`t mean its "disgusting" this is part of life ...
And for all those embaressed to ask their parents ...go ahead ..even if its your dad ..he will understand .. Beleive me :)
I hope this helps :)

Yeaa you should but only if you need one , I started wearing one just as I turned 10 I'm 12 now and I'm a 34 A which is pretty big. I started with a 28 but didn't fully start wearin them till I was 10 1/4 because I then started sticking out.I'm actually quite annoyed because some person on yahoo answers said tht 12 yr olds don't have anything to wear a bra for but If I didn't it would really hurt and I'd b sticking out all over the place .

I think every age is acceptable, I just don't like it. I mean 8 year olds and 9 year olds could wear trainers if they really needed to. Ten year olds, trainers definatly! Eleven year olds of course they can wear what they want, eleven is like an average age to start puberty so why not? I'm eleven and I wear a trainer and my boobs hang out of it! I emailed my mom that I think I need a real bra, but she hasnt responded :( I hope she does!

A girl should start to wear a bra when she begins to develop and her breasts start to need support. If that is younger than 11, so be it.

Crop tops are not bras, and can be quite pretty on little girls running around in the sunshine. They are also useful in teaching modesty, as the child is less exposed than they would be if running around with no top at all.

However, trying to sexualise children by putting them in garments more appropriate to women is a subtle form of child abuse. Let them be children while they still are children. No pre-pubescent child should be saddled with the problems and responsibilities that come with the onset of sexual maturity. A little girl should be a little girl, not a trainee sex object!

If the 9 year old's breasts are large then I would say yes. It can be awkward for a young girl to have large breasts and not have a bra to keep them under control, specially when being active. Maybe try a sports bra- they seem to be acceptable apparel for young women even if they don't have breasts.

EVERYONE GROWS AT A DIFFERENT RATE! It is only an absolute dim wit who would let their boobs flop due to age. I am 10 turning 11 in about 7 months  I am in puberty and yes I wear a crop top. If a 9 year old has boobs get them a crop top and, SO BE IT!

I think they  should at 11 because you begin to start high school then and you have to wear a see through blouse an at 8 if they really need a bra then yes but if they don't I think they shouldn't
I think if the child really wants one then they should buy a crop top. An maybe at ten :)

It doesn't matter what age they are. It depends on how developed they are. I for example didn't wear a bra until 6th grade where as my little sister wore one in 3rd grade. I think that if they need one, no matter what age they are, they should be able to wear a bra.

It's not the age that matters.  If the girl got boobs,
she needs support and mom needs to support her too.  I was nine when my
boobs start to show and please let her wear a bra because it attracts attention
to it already, no matter what the age.  You don't know if a predator is
looking at your little girl or not.

Sometimes little girls just want to wear a bra to feel 'big' and grownup.
I hated it so much to wear a bra at such an early age because I was teased a
lot by grownup women about it.

I'm ten and it hurts when I run. I think I need a bra and my younger sister even says so. I tried asking my mum once but I don't think she got the message. My younger sister got two bras from her birthday from a friend and insists that I take them but I feel too embarrassed to. I am going into high school next year and I'm scared that when changing for gym I'll not be able to get changed as I will be too embarrassed. Can somebody help me??

Yes, defo if they need to. I was very reluctant to wear one in year 7, however my mum brought me a sports bra. (I was a bit of a tomboy).

I don't think bra's are seductive or anything like that, it is the underwear for females.

There's no need for them to be frilly. However it really doesn't matter as long as it fits. She would be wearing under neath a top/t-shirt.

I think if they need one definately, puberty can start at ayoung age, if you just want to wear one just for no reason it would be good practice, just wear a training bra. Don't be afraid to ask your mom, or dad or whoever your guardian is. I started wearing a bra in fith grade, now I'm going into seventh, I;m 11 and I wear an A26, mine are a little big but I'm proud because my doctor says that a year after your boobs start developing you'll get you're period so I will probably get mine any day now.

If they are developing the OF COURSE THEY SHOULD WEAR BRAS. I'm 11 and I wear 32a. If you are just starting to wear bras buy a sports bra and a training bra. When you think your ready try padded bras. If you need the support wear the wire padded bras. They are so much easier to wear for me. If they do have the wire when you lift un your arms the bra starts to come up and its embarrassing.

Well I'm 13 and NEED a 39a, but I'm still in a training bra because I don't want to ask my mom for one and I live with my dad and I'm definitely not asking him. At 8 or 9 or 10 you should only wear one if you have started developing. My breasts are a lot smaller than my class mates, who all wear Bs and Cs. Just wear it if you have it or need it.

Hey I'm 9 and I wear a training bra because I have breast buds so if you think thats wrong then you don't know how young people are these days that hit puberty early.People are also getting so stupid these days.And all of you guys are stupid who think people should not be wearing training bras just by age and by the way have you heard this phrase "Never judge a book by it's cover"?

I'm ten, almost eleven, and I wear a training bra. I once bought a padded bra and my mum said no because she thoughtt I wasn't old enough. I'm in year 5 :-) and my two bestfriends wear them and I feel so left out. But I know that if you need one, where it because if you don't, your breasts will sag when your older. So I say if the girl needs a bra, get her a bra!!!

When I was about 10, I had to get one, but my mom didn't notice/didn't buy me any. It was only after she talked with someone else (when I was around 11) that she went out and got me some training bras, and I wore those for about 2 - 3 years. I had to wear like 3 bras at a time: I was getting bigger and I was still wearing a training bra - it was pretty bad. She started getting me 36C's which worked for a little while, but of course, girls in puberty are still growing. I am now around a 36D, but my mom still assumes I'm a 36C. I have begun buying bras on my own with my own money.
The point is, a girl needs a bra, but it all depends on her needs. There are tons of different options (I suggest Target for starters) for the 8 - 11 year olds who are just starting out. There were tons of girls my age who didn't really need one when I did. Everyone grows at different rates and starts at different times as well. Don't make the same mistake my mom did and think that a girl doesn't need one until a certain age!

When I was nine I started being self-conscience and I would wear layers, but I didn't get a training bra until I was like eleven. Everybody develops differently. Now I'm fifteen and I don't wear a bra except for when I play sports. Bras are uncomfortable and annoying, especially in warm weather.

It's not that young of an age since nowadays girls are developing very fast. As soon as their nipples show through their shirt buy them a training bra. Once they get into cup sizing buy them a shaped or lightly padded bra. And little girls should always wear a cami under their clothes.

okayy this may seem very weird or unusual but in fact it really depends , all children/teens/adults develop at different stages , sometimes faster , sometimes slower , so its quite normal if some children and fast bloomers at that age , and is quite appropriate to get a bra if they are already growing there at that age , some girls wear bras at the age for experience , or to just try it out , but it really depends

It Depends I think 8 or 9 Is a stupid age to wear a bra but when they get to about 10 and a half or 11 years old I think they should consider it if they have started puberty to be honest most girls start at the end of year 5 or start of year 6.

I'm 11 and I wear a bra all the time I'm a size 32a and and ive been wearing one for about 1-2 years now and yes I think 11 year olds should wear bras because its the time they move on to secondary school so they become more of a teenager

Well when I was 10 or 11 I just wore the crop tops and training bras! I have never seen an 11 year old with big breasts! I'm 13 now and I'm a proud 32 a or b (I'm different in every shop) my nine year old cousin got a padded bra just to look cool in front of me and my other cousin and she is so flat chested!

If a girl wants to wear a bra shouldn't that be her choice? No matter what the age. It seems like it would be psychologically damaging to tell a young girl she can't have or that she doesn't need a bra if she wants one. It is her body after all, so it's really nobody else's business but hers.

At eight you'll probably you'll going to need an undershirt or a training bra. If your parent lets you, you can get a lightly padded AA for more confidence. I'm 12 and I wear a 34B (adult sizes). I decided that if I were a mom I'd tottaly let my 8 year old wear a training bra, and if she REALLY needs it a padded bra at 8 1/2 or 9.

I'm 11 and I'm dying to tell my mom I need to start wearing a bra. I wear camis rite now. All my friends wear bras. I think I'll tell my mom tomorrow when we go shopping that I need to start wearing a bra. But I think it's ridiculous for 8&9 year olds to be wearing bras.

I'm 10. Mine feel really heavy and the hurt when I roll over in bed. I sneeked up the shopwith my pocket money and got 3 bras but I really don't feel comfortable in them. But when I don't, they hurt so bad and they stick out. My friends make fun of me at school and I don't know what to do

Yes because if your breasts are ready to wear one or if your crop tops are small and you don't get a bigger size for yourself thn I think its a good idea because your ready to wear one but get measured just in case you get the wrong size and everyone makes fun out og you I'm ten and soon I'm gettin one well I'm gettin thm tomorrow so I don't need to worry because I've got my mother with me but make sure with your parents .

I started at 8....my teacher was about 2 tell my mom to buy me a bra....I am a 11 year old in a b36 size bra.....if you r uncomfortable, don't wear one...you do not have to...I am bigger than all my friends and for that reason all of my shirts r 2 tight.....one of my friends didn't realize this and called me a slut...I am also really curvy, my butt is huge, and on top of that, my hips just HAVE to be the hips that swing...I hate my body because guys think that I'm like 15 or something.

No hun, you don't need a padded bra. Why would you want to copy your friends? :l Can't you be your own person? Your mom is right not allowing you to have one. She doesn't want random looking at you. You don't want to grow up before you have to. Believe me ^_^. You can get a padded bra when your 18.

Of course they can....I started to wear a bra at the age of 9...my niece has started her periods and she is only 10...maybe the girl is going through the stage where she feels liek she is turning into a young adult....its  never too early you know...mayeb start her off with a small one 28aa...or just a normal vest one...that may make her feel a little more compfortable...maybe all of her mates have started to wear them..its perfectly natural....girls usually turn more intelligent at the age of 9 , so maybe this is just a sign to say..she really is turning into a young lady..just let her wear a bra.. Obviously not one that is too big.. Just one that makes her compfotable and one that is suitable...one that she personally like.. Not persifically what you think looks good. She needs to feel comfortable too xxxx good luck xxxx

There is no exact age on where you wear a bra , everyone is different. For example my freind whos 13 has the flattest chest in the whole 8th grade class . Just because she is 13 doesnt mean she has to wear a bra ,, shes not ready yet.

Yes if you are at least a 30a then I think that its time to wear one. I'm 10 and I need to ask my mom for a bra because I'm a 32b and I just have those camis that are extreemly small for me so thats that(:

If her breasts have started to develop, she will need a bra. And for teens I think its more appropriate if they wear training bra instead padded wire, push up etc. Sadly some companies sell not appropriate tween age bra. Thats why my friend ended up making them herself as she coudln't get any nice ones. You can check her site out or look up ZinkyZoo.com and sorry for the link, but I thoguht it was ok for the subject. I Hope this helps.

I so agree with it being ridiculous cause a ten year old should not be wearing that, Its called a sports bra for that age they do NOT need a padded bra that early

The age of wearing bras is 16 according to me and it is really abnotious of girls wearing at 11 and 12 and it spoils the happiness of their young age. Anyways the girl is going to wear a bra till her death and suffer the pain and uneasiness of it then why getting the pain at an enjoyable early age

No... I think that is ridiculous to wear a bra girl younger then 12... They can't have boobs at all but if they have thie boobs are really small and they can live without bra... I think it is ridiculous to see a little child in first, second, third, fourth who wears a bra...
