Please recommend some vests or crop tops for DDs new boobs.

My 9yo DD's boobs are starting to make a definite appearance and are becoming very obvious under her school polo shirts (not because the shirts are tight, but some how the drape of fabric seems to make them more obvious).

So, I suspect when she goes back to school in September that she will be wanting some underwear to make her feel a) less bouncy and b) give a smoother line under her uniform.

She doesn't need a bra yet, so I'm looking for recommendations for vests or crop tops that have good stretch, fit smoothly and don't look too old for a 9yo. The vests she has at the moment just fit loosely and don't really make much difference.

Many thanks.

My dd used these which washed very well and were comfy, apparently. They also do different coloured ones if you don't want just white.

Thanks moonshine - I'll take a look.

My dd 9 has got the crop tops from Matalan and primark both wash up ok

I'd forgotten about Matalan - might stop there next time I do a supermarket shop.

My dd also has the M and S ones posted above - I highly recommend them.

Thanks - will add them to the checklist grin.

My daughter also had the M&S ones.

I buy my daughter m & s cropped seam free tops which have a light support and look sporty. Will try and do a link

DD has just finished year 5, and it was the beginning of year 5 that half the girls in the class started wearing crop-tops, so your DD probably won't be the only one. We got DD's from M&S too, but she preferred the stretchy microfibre ones to the more pure cotton ones - there are several styles, but she says the most comfortable are these racer back ones. She also likes these similar but standard cut ones.

Primark does a nice choice of cropped tops and little bras for pre teens.

Thank you all for taking the time to reply.
It's very reassuring knowing there are some good options out there.
