Took eleven yo for her first real bra.
had to go to the kiddie section to select and then women's section to try on.
We picked a nice, modest, plain white one with a minimal amount of padding so her nipples won't show through.
She tried it on liked it but then discovered that when she lifted both arms above her head the damn thing rode up over the breast tissue.
So we talked about it and an employee overheard us. She began to explain bra fitting. Cutting me off mid sentence as I was saying, "We need to try a different style". She then asked what kind we were looking for. We told her, "Just like this one".
She then escorts us to the women's section and handed us a few bras LIKE THIS!
She tried to convince me it had minimum padding. Despite the fact that the label clearly stated, "Increases One Full Cup Size".
Does she work commission? I can't imagine trying to sell a bra like that to a child. Some of the bigger brands will carry basic soft cup bras that are good for starters. Warners and Maidenform both used to have some decent starter bras. They look sort of like this:
