I'm 11 and started developing a few months ago - at least enough that you can finally start to notice somethingt anyway. That was when I started thinking about getting a bra. My cousin who is 6 months younger than me just started wearing one too, so for about the last month especially I've really been wanting and thinking about getting a bra.a lot. But I didn't know how to ask either. Finally a couple of days ago, my mom came in my room to put away some laundry.. I was in my PJ's lying on my bed.reading a book. She was in a good mood and I thought this is the time to ask her. Somehow, I got my courage up and just asked her.. It all came out kind of all at once and in in kind of a blur, but I think I said something like, "Mom, did you know that 'Bren' (that's my cousin) is wearing a bra now and also, just about everyone in my class has one too and I think maybe I'm ready for one".. To my very happy surprise, she didn't make a big deal about it at all. She just said yes, maybe I was about ready - and now, we are going shopping to get one for me when she gets her paycheck next week!! ! wish I had asked her sooner, instead of thinking and worrying about how to ask her, so much. Just ask your mom and try saying something like I did. You might be happily surprised like I was! Good luck!!
