Teenager Bra Intervention

(6 Posts)

My daughter is 14 , slim build .
Using the bra intervention method she measures 27 back and 37 boobs .
This makes her a 28 gg , is this correct ?
She's been wearing 32 b up to now !

If this is right , where the heck can I buy something a teenaged girl will wear .
Everything I've seen so far is a bit Miss Mary of Sweden grin

52 different styles available on Bravissimo apparently.

I like the spotty one.

Sounds correct to me, I was wearing a 32b for years then got fitted properly and was a 28d, now I'm a 28e. I know it is difficult to find attractive bras in bigger cup sizes and small back sizes, a friend of mine used to bemoan it constantly and now that I have started breastfeeding I suddenly have a similar problem. Mimi Holliday do absolutely beautiful bras with small back sizes and big cups but they are pretty pricey around £40/50, but you can pick them up on eBay for much less.

Took her to bravissimo for a proper measure and trying on session .
Turns out the best fit was a 32 DD !

May be different in different styles and shops , but she's got a few basics now . And she knows how a bra should feel when it fits properly !
