Beginners bra

What is a Beginner’s bra?

A beginner’s bra, or a teenager’s bra, is a lightweight bra with no hooks specifically designed for growing or tender breasts. The ages between 8 and 13 are when girls’ breasts develop. Your breasts go through a lot during this stage. They need support, grip and coverage. The bra for beginners is made to accommodate breast changes. Designed specifically for ‘bra beginners’, training bras look similar to normal bras, with a few possible differences: They often don’t have cup sizes, which can be confusing and hard to calculate for beginners. They avoid under-wiring, which can be uncomfortable and strange to wear if a girl isn’t used to it.
