I just read an article about a girl who took her sister bra shopping for her first one. All she could find were sexualized bras and she didn’t like that, so she decided to start up a company to fix the matter.
Ok… First- good for her. I’m glad she took initiative to fix a problem that she saw. It’s refreshing to see that in a younger person! BUT (big but right there) where on Earth was she looking at bras? Victoria’s Secret is known for fancy, pretty, “sexy” bras, but I know for a fact that they have unlined/lightly lined bras, with and without underwire, in an introductory size. I don’t see any sense in buying a first bra from them because they’re expensive, but it can be done. Other stores have them, too. You can’t go into the lingerie section and expect to not see any frou-frou ones, but the plain ones are there. If David and I have a daughter, her first bras will be tan or white, unless they’re sports bras- but those are another matter entirely. Her development will be the basis of what kind of bras she gets, too. Anyway- I know that I could go to Target or Wally or one of the malls around us right now and find MANY options in normal non-“sexy” bras.
TL;DR- the girl gets kuddos, but be serious… It’s not hard to find a bra for a [pre-]teen.
