The Formative Years: Teenager's Bra
The absolute best part of every teenage girl's day is getting dressed and feeling their absolute best! Yes, fashion and style play a big role in your wardrobe but what’s most important is having the perfect bra. It not only gives you comfort and confidence but also transforms your outfit with great silhouette. Feel free when you run around through school and college or hop into dance lessons followed by basketball sessions. A proper well-fitted bra makes a world of a difference.
The journey of buying the perfect bra for teenagers can be confusing at first, but with this guide, you’ll sail through the entire journey with ease.
Why do teenagers need a bra?
Wearing a bra is essential as bras provide coverage, support and grip to the tender bust tissue and help with development and growth. To avoid sagging and displacement of bust tissue during puberty and formative years when the body is undergoing hormonal changes, it becomes critical to start wearing a bra. Plus, bras provide a snug fit under clothes and help you feel comfortable going about your day.
What’s the ideal age to start wearing a bra?
Breast development is unique to every girl. Measurable breast development can start in girls as young as 8 years old. It is also common for girls to develop later, and only need a bra at the age 14. Each girl’s experience will be different. Some start to develop a little early and some, a little later. Each journey is unique and beautiful in its own way.
How do I find my size?
At its core, your bra size is just short for the relationship between your rib cage measurement (the band) and your bust measurement (the cup). There are two ways to find out your bra size: one, is to visit amanté exclusive store. Fit experts at our stores will help you find a fit perfect for you. Two, you can fit yourself at home using our FIT CALCULATOR on amantelingerie.in.
What are the types of bras that I can choose from?
There are tons of bras in the market for different shapes, sizes and purposes. When you are choosing your first bra, ask yourself what you need the most? Do you need everyday support, full coverage, athletic support, or just something cute for all day wear?
These are some of our beginner bras for teens:
1. Cotton bras
It’s recommended to start off with simple non-padded non-wired, everyday bra. The moulded cups of the seamless bras give a smooth and supported look all day long, all while staying comfortable and free to go about your day. These bras are perfect to wear to school, college or even a fun movie day out with friends.
2. Training Bras or Sports Bra
SHOP: Sports Bras
A multipurpose bra to start off with and ideal to be worn to all your sporting activities. The training or sports bra is non-restrictive and comfortable to wear and provides you with the required support, even when you are just lounging around.
Bralettes are comfortable, easy to slip into (minus the hooks) and perfect to pair with a top or even with shorts and palazzos. They're light-weight, breathable, and look cute peeking out of a tank top.
Remember, not all breasts are identical and each of us have different breast shapes. Be sure to try on a bras in different styles and variations of cup sizes while looking for the perfect fit. A couple of things to remember:
- Seamless styles are easier to carry off under thin tees and tops as they don’t show.
- White under white is not a good idea, choose a nude or grey instead.
- A good sports bra is always a good idea to start off with.
Now that you know the basics, have fun shopping for the perfect bra. And once you’ve found your pick, make sure you take good care of it.
