I say teen, she's 12. Where do you all get your teens bras? I measure her to probably be a 28C or B and I can't find anything like that for her. We went out today for first bras for her as she's been in crop tops until now. Admittedly we just went to the nearby retail park, so ASDA, Mataram, Next. But all they had were 30' and up and the only 28' were AA. We've come away with 30A as the best we could do with the choice, but (without traipsing everywhere) I'd like to try something 28' with a B or C cup.
I know , I was the same for my dd . I measured her as a 28 a but she settled for a 30 a in marks as she doesn't like things tight and I couldn't convince her it was too big . ( to be honest it was ok and she was happy )
To try in boux avenue have th em. However they're expensive for teen. I would get boux avenue to size her and then buy online. They can size her in a top or they just bring bras for her to try on and she tries on alone and then they come in adjust straps and see if it fits
But measure yourself in M and S. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES LET THEM DO IT FOR YOU.
I was in the wrong size for 10 years because my mother wouldn't hear a bad word against M and S and wouldn't accept their bra fitters are awful. Search M and S bras on mumsnet and you'll see what I mean.
M&S is only OK if you are very confident about fitting them yourself, and are highly varable in the same size.
[And once she's gone up a little in size, Bravissimo is surprisingly fantastic and sensitive for teens, and will do anything they can to find a bra that really, really fits. Their smallest size is also surprisingly small]
