Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post it but anyway,
my daughter is 14 and still in training bras, she's beginning to feel really self conscious and I'm not sure what to do.
Any help is appreciated,

Well, you can't make her boobs grow!

But you can reframe the sitaution so she looks on it as a positive: she can wear any clothes and they will look great on her.
No sagging boobs.
No expensive bras.
(And she might just be a late developer.)
Smaller boobs are trendy. Point out models and pop stars with small boobs.

Could she wear trendy Calvin Klein sports tops instead of training bras? To make it look more like a choice?

Also, work on her self-esteem in general. She's so much more than a pair of boobs.

Is everything else normal? Periods and other puberty development on track? Does she come from a family of women with smaller boobs?
