I have taken my daughter back to M&S today for another bra fitting last one was Aug she was measured at a 34c but today she was mearsuring at a 34DD i knew they had grown as her boobs were falling out but at the age of 10 with 34DD boobs shes not overweight she is a size 6-8 womens as she does not fit into childreens clothes she can get away with 15-16 years jeans. She is 5ft 2 size 6 feet. Has anyone gone through anything like this as my daughter is becoming depressed all the time because she has a different body to all her friends. She started her 2 years ago. Thanks in advance Smile

Stop going to M&S for a start! They add inches into the bra size, highly highly unlikely a preteen wearing size 6 is a 34 anything!

Measure her yourself or check out Boob or Bust measuring online.

Size 6-8 is not a 34.

Someone will be along with some good intervention advice, but M&S measurements are awful.

Hi OP,

Not really comparable experience, but my dd is 9 and is definitely well into puberty.
You say she started her periods at 8. Did you seek GP advice for early puberty? If not, I think I'd mention it to them. As that is v early for periods. I think 8 is early for 'puberty' but v v early for periods iyswim.

Your poor DD. Have you maybe spoken to her school to ask for their support around body image etc Flowers

TulipsInbloom1 · 11/12/2018 22:33

She is absoloutley not a 34 band size. Google Boob or Bust method. Do that instead. Im a size 14-16 and my bandsize is 32.

user1471530109 · 11/12/2018 22:33

Yes pp,. But that makes her cup size even larger doesn't it? i agree btw

TulipsInbloom1 · 11/12/2018 22:34

She started her periods at 8? Has she seen her Gp? She may have hormonal issues.

user1471530109 · 11/12/2018 22:34

I think some of you are missing the point the OP is making....

Pumpkin314 · 11/12/2018 22:35

I wouldn't share your stories of daughters with early puberty with this poster....

WeslhyB · 11/12/2018 22:36

I got no where else to take her around by me. I have started buying her womens size 10 tops cause the size 8 seem to look like belly tops on her. I had to buy her a size 12 coat from newlook just so the zip would do up over her boobs. I just dont know what to do anymore she just doesnt stop growing x

TulipsInbloom1 · 11/12/2018 22:38

Then she needs seeing by a GP.

She’s 10? Take her to the gp.

WeslhyB · 11/12/2018 22:42

Yes i have spoken to her school but are useless really, made her sit in agony and a soaking wet pad coming through her clothes as they would not let her come home .. i went mad by the way. She takes mefenamic meds prescribed by her doctor for her period pain.

If you are concerned it's worth booking an appointment at gp/nurse but I suspect it's still within normal range. Some girls develop much earlier than others. By the way, those questioning size, my daughter is a size 6 on bottom but 12 on top for fitted clothes due to having 34d bra size - her evening dress had to be significantly altered due to this (she's a real gym bunny to runs 20+ miles a week, really lean!)

WeslhyB · 11/12/2018 22:46

Doctor has said girls are starting younger and any time from the age of 8 is the norm now. X

Stop going to m&s! They're bra measuring is awful!

Use the Boob or Bust method - join their Facebook page - they're a great help!

I'm a size 6-8 and wear a 28F bra.
She's probably between a 28-30 back size. You can measure her yourself all you need is a tape measure and tap the details in online you'll get an accurate ready - give or take maybe a back size

dementedpixie · 11/12/2018 22:50

8 is wìthin the normal range to start periods. I agree that she won't be a 34 back, more like a 28 or 30. That will make her cup size bigger too though. A good supportive bra will help how clothes fit too.

RandomMess · 11/12/2018 22:53

GAP sell non underwired bras - buy with a 50% discount code.

Order a few different sizes.

combatbarbie · 11/12/2018 23:03

Def do boob or just method, looking at her, the middle flat bit should be flush against her breast bone. I am a 10-12 with big boobs and am 32 on the band.....always previously wore a 34!

WeslhyB · 12/12/2018 16:17

Thanks everyone, sorry could not reply earlier as some1 reported the post.

I dont think its massively worrying that she has breasts at this age, especially if it runs in the family to have large breasts. I would say though, as everyone else has said, that the bra size is wrong, and it would be helpful if you got her in a better fitting bra that would be more supportive and comfortable, make her clothes fit better and make her less self conscious. She is likely to be more like a 30FF , which is actually not as big as it sounds. Do you have a debehams or bravissimo near you?
Having been well into puberty for 2 years, having breasts is not something she needs to see a doctor about

Waitingonasmiley42 · 15/12/2018 11:58

How much does she weight? You say she's not overweight but a size 12 coat is surprising if she's a size 6/8. 34DD should still sit in a 10 at least or even an 8.

Waitingonasmiley42 · 15/12/2018 12:00

that should have been weigh...and also fit not sit
