Hi, My daughter started wearing bra since a year and half now. She just turned 14. She doesn't like wearing the normal bras. She always wears the sports bras. Is it ok? Does anyone else came across this tendency in their teens?

Is she well developed for her age?  My daughter will wear a bra and a sports bra to hide her boobs.

She has not fully well developed, somewhere in the 50% stage.  She is physically very slim and weight is just average for her age.. While some of her friends even though not fully developed wear the under wire padded kind (came to know from their moms), mine wants to hide under the sports bras. Is it normal behavior?

Why would it not be okay? I wore almost nothing but sports bras when I was a teen. Now I only wear them to work out. I don't see the harm in it.

If she's comfortable in them then just let it go for now.

I am going through the exact same thing!  The only "problem" I'm coming across is that when she does wear "regular" bras (and she does without complaining), she just can't hook the back!  LOL!  I'm sure she'll use others when appropriate (I never thought mine would wear a formal strapless one, but she had to under her gown as she was homecoming princess last week).  Mine is 16 now and I'm trying to tell her it's time to be a "girl."  She's trying.  :)

My daughter is fairly small breasted and she loves sports bras.  I don't mind her wearing them either because so many shirts and tops now are designed to show the bra and if she's wearing a sports bra it just looks like she's layering.

 I don't see anything wrong w/ wearing just sports bras. Heck, as an adult, I went through a phase where that was what I preferred and wore most of the time. If I could find more w/ a long enough shoulder strap, I'd still wear them most of the time b/c they fit my small boobs better.

I would think it's fine, most important thing is that she is covered and comfortable.
