Where to Go for Her First Bra Fitting
Don’t let shopping fall flat when sizing up options for her first bra fitting. We spoke with Wendy Herman, founder of BRABAR at Menlo Park Mall, whose mission is to help young girls feel comfortable and confident in their own skin by arming them with the right bra so they can be their best selves inside and out.
Advice for moms who take their tweens/young teens for a first bra fitting?
Let your tween drive the process and take your cues from them. It’s a difficult and uncomfortable time for them and as moms, we need to be sensitive to that. Let them try on a few styles and let them pick. If they find a bra they like that feels comfortable, start there, no pressure. You can always come back to buy more; leave on a high note. It can be a great, wonderful and memorable experience.
