Tesco are looking for 50 Mumsnetters with daughters who are ready to start wearing their first bras (aged approx 9-13) to take part in a private online focus group on Mumsnet.

Everyone who takes part will be sent details and pictures of suggested ideas, and given a log in for a private area of Mumsnet where they will be required to answer around 15 questions.

Everyone who is chosen and takes part in the focus group will get a £10 Tesco voucher and one lucky Mumsnetter who takes part will win £100 Tesco vouchers (prize draw).

We would like you to add your comments between 3rd-7th November so please don't apply if you're not available at this time.

If you'd like to take part please add your details here. We will email those selected to take part on either 1st or 2nd November.

Many thanks

Just worked it out blush

In my defence I wasn't well yesterday

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 23-Oct-10 09:17:15

no worries!

So you're not looking for people to actually test the bras? - just answer questions, is that right?

I haven't got the right aged children but my friend and I were a bit horrified at the padded bras for that age group we saw in Tesco the other week. Can this comment be passed on please!

Guess I can't join as DD 13 is on her 2nd bra sad. Have to say 'tho that lightly padded bras are the in thing. However I have a bugbear against those with wires as they shouldn't be allowed till about 15!!!

becci13 Mon 25-Oct-10 15:56:19

Hello to everyone who's already taken part - THANKYOU!!!!
If you do have a daughter who is not 9, but is ready for her first bra please feel free to take part or just leave a message here and we'll make sure its listened to and included.
That applies to everyone!

WhatagradeA - I have not seen the tesco bras so can not comment, but I would say that at 11 padding is more important that support to my daughter. During the development process growth is often uneven and nipples can protrude in a mortifying way. I hate sexualised underwear for young girls but plain padding for discretion I can understand.

QOD Mon 25-Oct-10 22:13:40

my dd wouldnt wear a padded bra as she wants her boobs hidden not accentuated!

TrillianSlasher Tue 26-Oct-10 12:47:50

'Padded' can mean two different things, I think that's one of the major problems.

Are these bras 'padded' to make boobs look bigger, or 'padded' as in made of thicker material so there is no nipple-showage?

tibni Tue 26-Oct-10 12:57:24

It is nipple coverage that is important to dd. Even the thicker crop tops do not seem to offer the modesty element important to dd.
