It's simple, really. But you need confidence. If you have never had a bra before, go into the clothing section, and look at the socks (or something innocent near the bras). If she says something like, 'Have you seen anything nice?', reply by saying, 'Yes, could I get a few?' If you are shopping for a special occasion, she will probably say yes.
However, if you have some soft bras, say, 'Mum, my bras are getting too small. Could we look for some bigger ones next time we are shopping?" Even if she says yes, she might go for larger soft ones. If so, say, "These look like they'll fit me!", pointing to whatever bras you want.
Simply go from there!
Ok this is what I did I wrote my mom notes and left them in like her makeup bag and her book that she is reading and other places only your mom looks it works and you never really have to say anything
Ok...I had the same problem... All of my friends got these cool colorful ones that were padded AND under wired. So I said "mom I need a new bra." so we went to the store. She picked out some sports bras that I was used to.(I was 13 and had started to develope more) and I said "mom I think I need a padded one..." so she went back and picked out another one...now it wasn't the colorful under wire one I had seen, but hey, it was padded. Just talk to her. And one other thing you could do is ask to buy it yourself. Say "mom I am going to look for a new bra" show it to her and if she dissapproves say "mom I will pay for it by myself" and then she might let you have it. Hope this helps! =]
M&s have some padded ones that don't have underwire...I had exactly the same problem as you a couple of years ago but then my mum bought me some of those from marks and spencers and they were plain in white or black but they have pretty frilly straps but are practical and comfy too. But they go a dodgy shape quickly because they have no underwire so this means that in a couple of months you can say you need a new one and get a nicer looking one. Good luck! -x
Tell her you need to go shopping for "underwear" or "bras" and then, if she picks out the sports bras, then tell her that those won't work...cause like your nipples show or something...and then pick out some padded/cup bras and try them on
Same with me. :( I'm to scared to face my mom and I don't have any sisters, thinking about going to talk to my cousin and see what she says maybe she'll take me shopping.
Whilst you are in the store say to her : Mum can I get one of those and point to the bras (cupped one ) then if she says no then say but I need one , please =] and also if she is worried that the weiring does damage to you (which it can when you r still growing ) then you can get ones without wireing what doesnt have an effect, so you could tell her that but I'm not sure because I was aloud one so I got one and also I buy some when I'm out shopping with friends =] hope this helps you x
I have the same prob I'm to embarraced to ask her face to face ?
I'm going through the same problem. My mom is TOTALLY closed about boobs and bras. I measured myself and I'm a 30a. I just have camis and those are way to thin. Hope that we both find some answers :)
I am 12 and my mum thinks I don't need one either!But I do!
I think that if you are embarrassed to ask her face to face(like I was)then you should text her.
Or tell her that everyone needs a bra and tell her you get bullied or something.Hope I can help!
I remember when I asked I was so ready and the I kinda whispered mom can I get a padded bra she wasnt sure but in the end she gave in I'm a 30a nearly bigger but I was happy after just work your self up to it think arr wont be that bad shes not gunna bit my head of :)
Just say...hey mom can I try one of those bras that have the cup you know what I'm talking bout don't you? And if she says no be like...just one to try please??? I love you mom! Lol
hope I helped :D
I am having the same problem. My bra is to small and I am afraid to ask my mam for a new one. I feel like I have been going through a lot of bras lately and that is adding to me being more cautious of asking her. I feel like I need more support but I am worried if I ask her she might not let me and it would be embarrassing. I want an under wire one but she won't let me but I don't want a sports one as people might laugh at me. I am really confused on what to do. Please help!
Well I really gusted a new bra because mine is to small I think but not sure and I am way to embaresed to ask for one and my mum might tell some one like my sister or she may say its not to small how big do you think you are but I don't know my bra keeps digging into me and ridding up and I gusted the straps as far as they will go and it still rides up and gusted in please please please help
Well what I think is go to wal mart or somthing with dad or mom and when they are like in the vegtable section or as far away from the bras as they can get say mom or dad I'm going to the bathroom and my stomach dosent feel to good and then start walking to the bathrooms and then go to the bras you should already know which one you want to try on and try it on and when you find on that fits hide it under an isle were no one will find it go back to youre mom and then get her to go past the bras quickly grab youre bra and show it to her if she says no ofer to pay for hope this helps.
I was in the store and said lets go and look at the shoes (the bras arre on the same place) then I was looking and my mam said I'm getting you one of these ok? And I said ok
I have the same problem because my nipples show
Tell her it's what you want for christmas and be persistant, it always works!
You don't have to have a cupped bra just coz all your friends have at least one! Your mom knows whats best for you. OK??
