Bra Fitting

When I turned 13, my mom told me it was time for my first bra. We arranged to go to the mall to buy one, and when we got there she told me that I had to be fitted. She went with me into a dressing room along with an employee of the store to measure me.


My mom told me that I had to take off my shirt in order to be measured, so I would be topless. I said no, and the employee said that I didn't have to that she could measure on the outside of my shirt. She told me again, take off your shirt it will make for a more correct measurement, so I did.


I stood there topless for the first time in front of my mother and a stranger. I got measured and than I had to try on bras in front of my mom. It was a really weird experience to say the least, something I never want to put my child through.


Has anyone else here ever been forced to stand nude or topless in front of your parent? If so, what were the circumstances around that? Were you embarrassed?

yeah I grew up in a screwed up home... LOL She also made me strip down after coming home from dates. She would smell my panties and make me stand there nude until she thought that I didnt have sex. After she said I could go, I was forced to walk to my room nude. Passing my brothers, fathers, whatever. When I tried to cover up, she told me not to and if I did I could get whooped.

Perhaps I should talk to her about it. I am sooo confused, I love sex. I love sex and I love sex! I love being nude and having sex. However, I feel shame... I need to talk to her I guess

I guess you are right, but making a 13 year old stand topless in front of their mother can cause issues.. LOL Where you always willing to let your mom see you naked or was it after a certain age? Did you go to the gym and shower with your mother or just girlfriends? Every gym that I have ever been to has curtains, did they not with you?
