Ladies: How Old Were You When You Started Wearing Bras?

I'm trying to see if I was the youngest bra wearer. Not telling you my age until I see what age normal people were.

    Pretty sure I was in 5th or 6th grade, bc that's when I started shaving my legs, too. So, 10 or 11?

    I was 11 - though honestly I probably only needed it at 12.

    I was nine ...
    And in the fifth grade. There was nothing "training" about it. It was horrible; no other girls looked like me. I did not appreciate the attention.

    6th grade was my start-of-puberty year, first time wearing a bra, shaving my legs, getting my period, and back when we wore dresses to school every day, wearing stockings.

    Soft bras in the sixth grade, wire bras in high school.
    I don't actually need a bra, I just wanted to fit in with the other girls at summer camp.

    I was a late bloomer
    Pretty sure I didn't wear a bra until sixth or seventh grade but honestly was so small until I was like twenty. Not really sure what happened but I've been accused of getting implants more than once 😂

    I was 9 when when my friend's mom told my mom I needed one. She was not wrong.

    Fourth grade 😳
    I developed way earlier than my friends and I was mortified. My mom also didn't care that the bras weren't comfortable, so I'd always take them off immediately at school and stuff them in my backpack. So awkward all around.

    I was 12. I probably should have started wearing one at 10 years old though...

    Okay, so I was 7.
    I wasn't a chubby kid until 5th grade (age 10) but I developed so early. My mom wasn't comfortable putting me in training bras so young, so I wore sports bras for two years. Then moved up to training bras for like a week. I still prefer sports bras because they are more comfy for my poor back! I had D cups by 6th grade and when my chubby phase ended (high school) I still had those massive knockers 🤷🏽‍♀️🙈

    11 I think? They were horribly itchy and uncomfortable. 😫

    12 or 13 and I was very quickly a DD. Haven't found a comfortable bra yet! 😖

    I was in 8th grade but my mom was asking me in very awkward situations if I wanted a bra instead of telling me I had to wear one
    I'm guessing she didn't know about getting measured because she assumed I was a certain size which I'm sure that wasn't my size at all

    Fourth grade and I was 9 or 10 years old. I HATED training bras 🙅
    It didn't have a wire and I didn't feel like it was grown up enough...funny because now I don't prefer to wear wired bras.

    I was 13 - should have started when I was 11. At 12 I wore a jr version of a sports bra most days though.

    Gosh, I was an extremely late bloomer! I think I was in 9th grade! I remember wearing a singlet (tank) all the way through 8th. Tbf, I didn't really need a bra until 11th grade.
    I did go from a B to D cup between age 17-18 though. Happiest year of my life!!! (If you're the youngest @Boogie, will I be the oldest?)

    5th grade for my first underwire
    So I went from tony boobs to a perky bra boob and I would go to the bathroom and look at my boobs because I loved how it looked. Wish I was still that excited to look at my body/boobs

    I was in 3rd grade.
    I wore a training bra and soft structured/wireless bras. I remember in 3rd grade I had to wear a spandex leotard under a raincoat for a dance recital. While I was in the dressing room I had both my aunt and a friend tell me I needed to wear a bra. I was slightly offended.

    I'm a guy, so never. But I had a friend who left 4th grade flat like everyone else (early 70s) and returned for 5th grade at a 38DD. She didn't date until college because of the horrible attention she got. I'm telling you, guys have it easy.

    But I needed one much earlier, friends had to tell me. I am now between DD a DDD so was def a late bloomer.

    My 9 y/o sister just got training bras and she think's she's so grown up now. "Should I wear the pink one? Or the white one with the little bow?" hahahaha
    She's not chubby like I was when I had to start wearing bras, in fact she hardly has any fat at all. We just have cursed genes.
