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.

I wouldn't worry about getting "in the middle of their relationship". If he makes a pass at someone else (you?) then that's HIS problem, not yours... and he probably wasn't worth your friends' time in the first place. Sorry, but you can't fix other people's stupid. And if it's you who's chasing, remember: friends are more important than some stupid/angsty short-term fling. Trust me-- I lost a few friends that way, and those relationships doesn't last very long afterwards. #TeenageWisdom

I rather you tell them the truth.....It's better to get help during times like this.. But if you wanna go down THAT road. (which includes lying, deep guilt, and possibly more scars...just a warning.) Here's how. 1. Hide them, wear bracelets long sleeves, whatever. just do it. 2. LIE. say you cut your self from glass of a REALLY bad paper cut...anything. 3. STOP!. Don't cut, easiest thing to do. At least let the scars fade... Like I said, I don't really want to help you with this stuff. TALK to someone. I cannot stress this enough. Good Luck....
