What do you do about sprouting little bumps not quite ready for first bras?

Not sure if this is the right section for this, but can't think where else... DD is just beginning to have very tiny buds, not even breasts really, not remotely big enough for a double A or whatever the starter size is now. But she says that when she runs or jumps on the trampoline, it's uncomfortable so I think she needs some sort of support, is there anything out there that would fit the bill or has worked well for anyone else's DD?

M&S do a wide range of croptops in a variety of styles - some simple, some bra-like. Could be worth buying a couple for her to try?

In primark you can buy a 2 pack of soft crop top type bras. Like the top half of a vest. They will provide a bit of support until a bra fits.

Crop tops. DD2 calls them "baby bras"!!

DD is 9y and for the past few months, since she started developing more, she has worn cropped vests. She likes the slightly more shaped ones with elastic right under the bust area, such as the ones from M&S. Think Primark do some nicely shaped ones too. They are still done in age ranges rather than sizes.

DD has also commented on it feeling uncomfortable when doing sport or playing on her trampoline but isn't yet at the bra stage.

Ah, crop tops, of course. I'd forgotten they exist. Thanks v. much, will have a look.
