Survey: Your First Bra Shopping Experience

Lizzie McGuire had a traumatizing first bra shopping experience, and fortunately I did not. I didn’t have to fight with my mom to get one or admit it in front of my best guy friend. I didn’t really need it, but all the other girls in my grade were getting bras so I felt like I had to. Despite being a super clumsy and awkward middle-schooler, buying my first bra wasn’t that bad.

I went with my mom just on a regular shopping trip, it wasn’t like some special expedition. It was from Limited Too because that was a really cool store back in my day. It was white and it had a little stitched blue butterfly on it. I got a couple of sports bras too, but really they had nothing to support at the time.

    Not saying how old I am.
    For quite a few years.
    I got my first one when I was in grade 4, but I didn’t need one.
    I don’t know, they probably got one a bit before or around the same time.
    My cousin gave me my first few, and a family friend. One had tiny cups, and I mean tiny. The rest were sportish bras.The ones I actually bought were from Lasenza Girl.
    No, I never.
    Yep.
    They were all pinks, blacks and pretty blue.
    My mom.
    No.
    Nope.
    No.
    I went shopping not in my town, and I didn’t have one at that age.
    I knew.
    No.
    Um, maybe 7 or 8?
    Don’t have a favorite.
    I don’t go very often.
    Nothing, I guess.
