Hey there. I have ID twin daughters and have decided that it's time to put them into bras. They are only 8 yrs old. But anyone can see their ladies through their shirts. and once in a while one will complain about them hurting so that alone tells me they are growing. I just feel they are so young for this. But, tomorrow I am taking them bra shopping. How many should I get them anyway?

My oldest (12) didn't need a bra until just this year (7th grade) and my now 10 year old still doesn't need one, but for both girls there was one girl in their third grade class

Gillian has a few sports-style ones and maybe two of the triangle style. She doesn't wear them that often, though, because you can only see anything when she has on a thin or light-colored shirt. She started to develop a bit toward the end of second grade, and I was worried that by this time it would be very noticeable and she would get teased, but it's been a year and a half and she hasn't really grown any more (although she did have to start shaving her armpits, so I know other stuff is happening). So it's possible that your girls might stay at this stage until they're a little older.

Ally is 9 and is going through exactly the same. They are not big enough to really need a bra yet but you can see the bumps through the shirts and she also complains that they ache.

Lindsay is just 5 so I'm not there yet. But my friend's soon to be 9 yo wears either sports bra styling, ones similar to the last post or camisoles. She doesn't really need to right now but when she wears certain tops it is noticiable (sp?). She is on the shy side and it is just better for her that she starts wearing them all the time then find that one day she should have worn one with the top she chose and didn't. She would be so embarrassed and refuse to go back to school ever again. I started developing in 4th grade when I was nine and there are way more options available now.

Hi Chelle - get them as many as they will need for a week or however often you do laundry.

We got 6 each. Most all came in a two pack and were 4.99 each set. They were excited and picked whole bunch out. LOL I made them pick three sets which gave them 6 each. Some are those that look like half t-shirts and some have more of a bra look to them. They have a few shirts that don't work with those t-shirt type bras. Katie went for the bling ones and Natalie went for cute. LOL Now, just to get them to wear them daily. I need to make a point to ask them.
