How to Know when It's Time to Go from a Training Bra to a Cup Bra
Put on your regular training bra, and put on a shirt over it.Look in a mirror. If you feel that your breasts are not supported enough, or look pointy and ungainly, it may be time for a cup bra.
Move around with your training bra.If it feels like your breasts are moving all over the place in an uncomfortable or painful in any way, it may be time for a cup bra.
Ask your mother, older sister, older relative, or any trusted female friend what she thinks about it.If she thinks you should buy a new cup bra, ask her to take you shopping. You probably don't need a fancy bra like from Victoria's Secret for your first bra; perhaps try Aerie, or even Macy's or discount stores like TJMaxx and Kohl's.
Get a fitting.If you go to a Macy's or Aerie, find a salesperson and ask her to measure you. She'll tell you your bra size--it will be a number followed by a letter, such as 28A, 32B, 34D, 32C, etc. Pick out some different brands and styles of this size.
Go into the dressing room and try the bras on.If your breasts do not fill out the bra, and there's a gap between the cup of the bra and the top of your chest, it's too big. If all the bras are too big, find a smaller cup size. The smallest is AAA. If that size is too big for you, you can stick with a training bra for now!
Try on a bunch of different bras.Move around in them. Wiggle--do your breasts feel supported? Try on a shirt on top of the bra--does it look smooth and natural? Once you find some bras you like--congratulations! Finding a good bra is not always so easy!
QuestionWhat if I am really scared to ask my mom to get one in person and too scared to write a note?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerDon't be scared! Just walk right up to her and say it. Honestly, it's the best thing you can do! And then you can talk about getting you properly sized and everything, and it'll be fine. It seems scary at first, but everything will work out!Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I'm too nervous while asking her and it's too late to back out?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust say it! There's nothing to be embarrassed about, and you'll feel a lot better once you've gotten the conversation over with.Thanks!
QuestionMy training bras are really uncomfortable and my nipples poke out. My mom just keeps buying bigger training bras. How do I tell her I need something more?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust tell her how you feel. Say that you feel like people can see your breasts through your bra and shirt, and you need something a little thicker, preferably a regular bra. You can also just ask her to take you bra shopping and point out what you want in the store, or even go online to any retail store's website (Target, Victoria's Secret, etc.) and show her what you want on there.Thanks!
QuestionI'm 12, and have had a training bra for a couple years. I've been developing at a slow rate, and I'm not sure if I need a cup bra or not. Should I say something to my parents?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYes. If you feel you need a cup bra, just tell your parents.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if I'm 11-12 years old, when would be the right time to switch over to a regular bra?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt doesn't matter how old you are. Different people grow at different rates. Wait until your breasts are big enough that they fill out the cup or are uncomfortable when you wear just a training bra.Thanks!
QuestionI told my mom that my training bra was too small (I'm 12), and she just insisted that I get a bigger size training bra. How do I tell her I need something more without making her feel uncomfortable?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou need what you need; don't worry about making your mother uncomfortable. Your mom may feel that you can't be growing up so fast, but if you are, it isn't your fault. You could always ask another family member, but I think it's best to just convince your mom you aren't lying.Thanks!
QuestionI'm only 11, how should I ask my mom about this?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf you really don't want to ask her in person you can write her a note. Try to include the reasons (e.g., my nipples show though my training bra, all my friends say I need a bigger bra, I need more support, etc.).Thanks!
QuestionSo my nipple show through my shirt and I have a bra but my boobs kinda squish out of it but I don't know if I can fit into any cup bras and I am scared to ask my mom if I can get a cup bra. Help.wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou gotta ask! If it's a problem, especially noticeable, you need to ask her. She will take you, hopefully, and if she doesn't, try extra padding and loosening the bra's straps until she does.Thanks!
QuestionI feel uncomfortable talking to any family members about my body but I need to shop for a real bra. What should I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust ask to go to Target or a similar store, and just say that you need a little time in the intimates section.Thanks!

- As you grow older, you may find you don't need a bra at all! I have friends who are perfectly comfortable not wearing a bra. If you have larger breasts, it may be very uncomfortable (and you might not like the way it looks) to not wear a bra.
- You don't have to rush into growing up--and buying cup bras!
- Don't feel the need to wear an underwire or a push up bra just because you're going "a step up". There are plenty of non-wire and/or non-padded "regular" bras out there.
- Don't feel pressured to wear a larger bra because other girls are. Your body is unique.
