Crop tops that give a bit of support
Dancergirl · 10/01/2018 16:41
Dd is nearly 11 and has been wearing crop tops for about a year. She has white cotton ones from M&S but they're wearing out now.
She's getting more developed now and needs a bit more support but she doesn't want to wear a bra yet.
Does anyone have any recommendations for crop tops that are supportive? She only likes white and has some sensory issues so they must be smooth and comfortable. Thanks.

I don’t know of any that give extra support sorry. Would she consider these Crop Tops. They seem to be a bit more like a bra without the restriction. The M&S bras for this age are actually very soft. Has she had a feel of one yet? She might change her mind once she realises how soft and comfy they are

DD at that stage wore the equivalent of these:
racer back crop tops
We found that the polyamide / elastane composition gave more support than the crop tops that are essentially the top parts of vests, but didn't have all the hooks and eyes and straps of early bras.
She still prefers sports bras to normal bras now.

Thanks, might try the racer back ones. How does the sizing come up forever? Not sure whether to get 9-11 or 12-14...

Tbh, I really can't remember.
I probably got the 9-11 ones, as that was her age at the time, and they'll be more supportive if tight-fitting than they will be if loose. She was tall but slender at that age.

My DD was diagnosed with early puberty and has need bra level support since turning 8 which she hated very and m and co do some great crop top/ early bras what I found worked well were matching sets and vests with support hidden away
