Bra size for DD age 11

Could you help me with bra sizes for my DD please ?

We can't get to the shops so have measured her myself. She's 26 1/4 rib age & 28 inches at fullest part. A bra calculator has her as a 30A which seems a bit odd ?

At these measurements I'm not quite sure a bra would fit, but feel she is a little past the cropped top stage ? Sob

If it existed, she's be about a 26B. They don't really exist, sadly! I'd probably try a 28A. The calculator you found is obviously doing the old +4 thing.

M&S sell girls's bras in a 28A which might do.

Their Angels range do a nice bra/crop top with a bit more support, but still comfy I'll see if I can find it...

Thanks for pointers. Looking at the m&s website, they have a few options which are a cross between a bra & cropped top, so have ordered a couple of those. These also come in age rather than size. Not sure she's quite ready the right size for an actual bra confused.

Have also ordered her a sports cropped top as she runs a lot.

John Lewis have some quite good bra/crop top compromises for that age group.

Can't recommend John Lewis enough. They were amazing with DD. Poor girl was 9yo with 'proper boobs' and really self conscious.

My dd is 11 & very slender.. She wears a 28A .. I've got hers from Primark & peacocks so far

Matalan also do a nice compromise crop top/bra type thing that dd also 11 is prepared to wear. She will also wear a soft sports bra type thing as well. The ones that are more like a crop top with some cuppage rather than an actual bra shape if that makes sense.

Will take a trip to Matalan as easy to get to & park.
Thanks !
