10yo seems to be producing a nice little gonna be huge pair of breasts, in my head 10 is too young to be wearing a bra but having just seen her having came out the shower it looks like she could be doing with some sort of support, any ideas where to buy bras for her? She is quite tall and broad already into age 12-13 clothes so it should be no surprise she is developing shes still my baby

Also she is sporty should we try and get some sort of sports bra too?

Envy I never got bigger than an AA cup so god knows where is she getting them from Sad

Try a 30E too as that'll be a cup bigger and will solve any cup spillage issues

my 9 year old wears a bra and has done for a year now . She started developing breasts when she was 6!! She finds the slightly more padded ones from primark best as they protect her chest while it is tender.

John Lewis have quite a good range of teen bras (well, as good as exists since nobody is doing 24s or 26s) and they generally know how to fit so if you really want an in store fitting for girls who are still

John Lewis all the way. They've been brilliant with my dd.

Not too young, especially if she does have boobs. All the girls in my year 6 class apart from one wore bras. Unfortunately the one who didn't really did need to more than most who did, and we did all notice. Knowing her parents I suspect she wasn't allowed

Speak to her and see how she feels. Unless she's strongly opposed to the idea then get her a selection. Measure her yourself them either order online or pick some up for her to try on at home which she should find less embarrassing than going to buy them herself ( obv if she wants to go to the shop then take her).

I would start with crop tops. We got nice stretchy ones from Asda that look a bit like my sports bras.
