How do you know if your tween or child is ready for her first bra? It depends — companies make training bras for girls ages 5 or 6 up to teenage sizes. All girls develop at different rates, and it's up to each girl and her family to decide when it's time to go first-bra shopping. Some good indicators that your girl has reached training bra age is that she's expressing interest in getting one. Beginning with lightly lined bras is an easy way to introduce girls to the basics of dressing as an adult, and it's OK to let her practice (or "train") even if she isn't quite ready for the real thing. Even if your girl hasn't let you know she's in the market for a bra, it might be time to buy her first bra if she's noticeably developing, experiencing pain from lack of support or starting to be active in sports. We've rounded up great training bras for tweens, from sports bras to bralettes, from retailers like Walmart, Target, Justice and Yellowberry.
