Do you remember getting your first bra?
Was it a special experience? I hope so.
A girl’s first bra takes her through a gateway – a significant step along her path towards womanhood. She is introduced to a whole new world of lingerie choices: cup size, cotton, lace, black, pink, skin-tone, underwired, padded, strapless, matching knickers. Be there to guide her into this new territory.
Make an occasion of it. Rather than popping into a department shop on your way back from grocery shopping, set aside some ‘girls together’ time.
Take your lead from her – if she’s excited, share her excitement, if she does not want to make a big deal out of it, play it cool. Recognise that it is a significant first purchase, however she may seem. Make a special time when you do not have to hurry, and perhaps go somewhere for cake afterwards. Make the acquisition of your daughter’s first bra a cherishable memory.
I would love to hear your ‘first bra’ stories….
