How do i ask my mom for my first bra?!

Question: How do i ask my mom for my first bra.?
Uhhhhh i need a bra soooo bad!!My nipples stick out of my shirt and it looks horrible!! Me and my mom don't really talk about stuff like this except last fall she said that i need a bra and we should get one but i guess she forgot since i stopped wearing the shirts that you could see through.Now i usually just wear a sweat shirt all day but it's getting hot out.So how do i ask my mom.?And don't say "Oh just go out and buy one!" or "Pick one at the store and say "Oh this is soo cute" Im really tomboyish and im only 11 but everyone wears them and the people who don't are made fun of! Please help!!!!!!!Health Question & Answer

Maybe wear something around the house (when she is home) that makes it obvious. Wear something like a t-shirt and shorts....dress as if you are going to wear that outfit outside. Don't wear something that you sleep in. When she sees what you are wearing she will think "oh my gosh, my daughter can't go out like that"! Today is the perfect is the weekend and she can take you to the store to buy a bra.

If your brothers or dad is home, then just call her into your bedroom. If it comes down to it, show her what you look like in your close fitting t-shirts and just say, "Mom, I think we have to do something about this". Or, just tell her that you are getting teased at school because you don't wear a bra and all of the other girls are wearing them. Tell her that the boys are teasing you too.

When you hit middle school you will have to change your clothes for physical education class and all of the girls change in a big locker room. Wearing a bra allows you to change your clothes with some modesty with out being completely naked.Health Question & Answer

I was in the same boat as you. My mom and I didn't talk about that kind of thing, but I needed a bra! I just told her that I needed one, and she went out to buy it for me. I know it wil be a bit hard for you to say that-it was for me too. But if you just ask her, she'll understand because every girl goes through this.

Good Luck!

It's as simple as saying "mom, can you get me a bra". A bra is not that big of a deal, juts like a pair of socks. If she told you already that you need one, then she will certainly understand when you tell her.Health Question & Answer
