Dear Dish-It: I Need a Bra

Sep 06, 2011

Dear Dish-It,

I think I need to start wearing a bra but I’m afraid to ask my mom. What do I say?

Cup?

Dear Cup?,

The first thing you need to do is stop being embarrassed! Needing a bra is something that all girls go through – even your mom when she was your age! The easiest thing to do is just ask your mom if you can talk to her, and let her know that you think you need to start wearing a bra. If she agrees, arrange a time when the two of you can go bra shopping together. If you can be open and honest with your mom about this, it will only get easier to talk to her about personal things as you grow up.

Tips & Tricks

If simply approaching your mom isn’t really your style, why don’t you wait until the two of you are out shopping. When you pass a bra store or the lingerie department in the mall, tell her that you’d like to go in, because you think it’s time for you to start wearing one. If you just ask to stop and take a look, I think your mom will definitely get the hint about what’s on your mind.

Mom Knows Best

The most important thing to remember is that your mother has already been through all the “growing up” things that you are and will be going through. Now that it’s your turn, she’s actually one of the best people to give you support and advice at this time in your life. Just have a casual conversation with her and drop in, “Mom, I really think I need to start wearing a bra. What do you think?” Believe me, your mom will most likely be more than happy to help you, and she’ll also be happy that you decided to come to her.

Yeah I had a friend in the same situation as you, he was too scared to say anything so we spoke for him. Now the 'friend' has changed and hes our mate. Just tell her straight and firmly, its the only way

Thanks I actually might try that but she is really stubborn and will not take no for an answer I have tried just ignoring her but he will kick, hit, or punch me to get attention. my parents also don't like her bcuz she is bossy. I also have to go to summer camp with her for the next 2 weeks and w have to be buddies for it so i think i might die

I would drop her for two main reasons. One - guilt by association. Meaning people might be afraid to be your friend because they think you might bully them too like she does.  Two - Losing her "only friend" as you say may make her realize she needs to make a change on how she treats people. In any case, do it nicely if you do! HTH!
