DD 12yo 32D

12 yo DD blossomed this last year. I put off bra shopping for a while as I wanted to get her properly measured so waited for retail to open up. Went today and she's 32D.
Got her a couple of wireless plain bras. They look possibly a bit wide on the shoulder. But can't seem to find 'teen' bras in this size, so I'm wondering if she just has to make do with fully adult bras and will grow into them?
Went to Pink but bought the bras in Victoria's Secret.
Anyone got any tips, brands, shops, experience that might help me make sure she has the right thing? Thanks

You need a proper lingerie shop. She will probably have better luck with racer back styles.

Are you sure her measurements were done properly?

I had a look on the website for Pink/Victoria Secret and the way they measure is odd.

Thanks for the replies.
@Nightbear their method is unorthodox but I'm a committed Vic Secret customer myself and they have always done right by me. I was thinking to double check the measurements though.
@MixedUpFiles racer back is a good idea, thanks

It’s the 32 I’d want to be sure of. I’ll take your word for it on the fit but I just measured myself their way and came up with a band with 2 inches up on what I wear.

Ah thanks @Nightbear that's really helpful their bands are made up a bit tight now I think about it

...and presumably that would lead to her wearing something that come up a bit broad across the shoulders
