Choosing a bra can be a difficult thing at any age. When looking for your daughters, it can be even more challenging. Take a look at these tips from Hanes Bra Expert, Melissa Berry, to help make your shopping trip a pleasant and successful one.
Girls develop at different rates – some later, some more quickly. So be prepared to have the discussion. It’s an important time for body awareness and self-confidence.
Remember that your girl is still growing, so consider a bra with a flexible fit, adjustable straps and removable foam inserts. Hanes bras are designed with growing girls in mind.
In terms of styles, a seamless pullover or bralette can be a great starter bra. Next, look for a seamless style with removable pads for added modesty. For girls on the go, a racerback style can provide a sporty look and keep straps from slipping off her shoulders. For older girls, molded cups provide smooth shaping and support.
Know what type of bra your daughter wants before you go shopping. This helps you focus your options and ease the decision-making process, in what can be an emotional time (for you and your daughter!).
Once at the store, consider the fit: Can she jump up and down without the bottom band riding up or the straps falling down? Can she wear her backpack comfortably? Is she comfortable with the thinness or thickness of the strap?
Look for easy sizing guidelines on the package – knowing your daughter’s clothing size and/or weight will help you to find the right size for her.
All of these great styles can be found at Target.
