- Choose a bra made of cotton or another smooth, comfortable fabric with breathable
qualities. Bras made of synthetic materials may trap moisture against your skin, causing
irritation that could be prevented.
- Make sure that any decorative frills, such as laces etc, are not scratchy and irritating
to your skin.
- For optimum comfort, look for a bra with a 3/4-hook back closure that offers the most
flexibility in fit. Also, try and get wide, cushioned, non-stretch shoulder straps, which
will provide support without digging into your shoulders.
Also known as the Starter Bra. Most mothers delay buying a bra for their daughters
thinking she is still small and it is too early to ask her start using a bra, till someone
points out to them that their little daughter has actually grown up. More likely the girl
herself asks the mother to buy her one having seen other girls using them or being
conscious of her changing femininity.
Sports Bra is something between a slip and a micro top. It is like
those readymade saree blouses available today but of cotton and does the job of supporting
the growing breasts. Ideally worn for 6-9 months depending on the growth till the girl
graduates to the normal bra.
