A girl’s body starts developing into that of a young woman with the onset in puberty and this is usually before the start of her period. Although each girl is unique and each one will develop differently, breast development starts around the age of 8 years.
Breast growth during puberty is divided into 5 stages.
This is a stage before puberty where the breasts are flat with a small areola and a raised nipple.
At this stage, she will not require bras. She can used simple single layered camisoles.
Breast buds develop in this stage.
Tissue develops under each nipple and the areolae and nipples become bigger and darker in colour. She might feel some tenderness in the breasts at this stage.
At this stage, if she is getting conscious, she will need layered bras or camisoles so the breast bud does not show through her tops. It is better for her to use bras/camisoles made of cotton or other natural fabrics to help with the tenderness. Adira’s sponge layered bras and camisoles will be the right choice at this stage. You can buy them here.
The breast buds grow larger and the breasts will start looking pointy and this might look awkward through her tops.
She will need bras or camisoles that give her a smoother coverage without making them look pointy. Adira’s quilt layered bras with the mid-way elastic will give her a smooth coverage without looking pointy. The bras are available here.
At this stage, the areola and nipple blend and the breast is still growing. As the breasts grow and get fuller and heavier, support and lift will be necessary. Adira’s quilt layered bras and camisoles come with a fitted waistband elastic and adjustable shoulder elastic which will give her support and lift. You can get the camisoles here.
This is the fully developed stage where the breasts are fuller and rounder. The areola is a mound above the breast and the nipple is raised above the areola.
At this stage she can progress into regular women’s bras.
It's possible that young girls could become conscious through this stage and this could lead to body image problems and low confidence.
Having positive conversations with her about puberty will help her. Ms.P’s Guide For Girls is a fun and positive book on puberty that will help your daughter understand her changing body.
