2 things....

1) tale her to the Dr and have them explain the importance of the bra for her body.

2) you are mom...she doesn't leave the house without it. PERIOD. Loss of priviledges, grounding, extra chores if she refuses.

Have her properly measured for a bra. Take her to get a bra that fits correctly. Also let her know that if she doesn't start wearing a bra that her tits are going to sag to her knees by the time she's 20.

Bras actually aren't great for your health. Not only do they allow the ligaments that support and shape the breasts to become weak, they interfere with lymph drainage. An undershirt (camisole, tank top, the like) should do just fine if it's modesty you're worried about, and she's less likely to fight you on it.

Try a sports bra? She's at least have some support.

I suspect that this is a self-esteem issue; she is bolstering the way she feels about herself with attention from boys.

I wear a D cup, and I am perfectly comfortable without a bra

This. My 14 y/o is a D cup, she doesn't have a choice.

Maybe your daughter just finds bras uncomfortable. I am only a B cup, but I still hate bras.

I can't wear underwires, period. And I won't buy/wear any bras that are scratchy, lacy, have bulky or rough seams, push up style, or that are heavily padded. I really only like soft, smooth, completely seamless bras.

Honestly, if I'm wearing a loose fitting top, I'll often just wear a cami with a built in shelf bra, instead of a regular bra.

Maybe she'd prefer camis with a built in bra, sports bras, or seamless pull over bras?

Also, she might be self concious about her breast size too, as many teen girls aren't as well endowed as her. So, she might feel that certain bras accentuate her breasts too much, and make them look even bigger than they already are.
