My 8 year old needs a bra

My little girl isn't a baby anymore and her little Cami's and tee- shirts are just not cutting it anymore. I think I need to buy her a bra. I'm not talking about a training bra but more like a sports bra? Maybe thats more age appropriate? she doesnt need support but more along the lines of something to cover up whats going on. How do I explain this to her? The last thing I want to do is scare her or give her any sort of body image issues. Should I hold off and just buy bigger shirts? Do they make Cami's with like the shelf bras for little girls?

Get the girl a bra. Not a big deal. She's a girl... It happens.

My 5yr old wears camis under some of her shirts already.  I will buy little bras/sports bras when she needs them and just say it is something extra she gets to wear--she won't care, she will just put it on, finish getting dressed and go.

I know but she's a little girl. She's not a teenager.

Cover it up??? Lol. Just buy her a bra. She doesn't need to cover up her boobs growing. She just needs to dress modestly in general bc she's 8. Don't give her a complex about her boobs at such a young age.

So just buy it and give it to her with no explanation?

I got a bra when I was 8. If you make it a big issue, she will think it's a big deal but it's just not. I stared my period at nine. She needs to be informed this stuffs happens and its ok!

Take her with you! She's a tiny woman. She needs to know! Let her pick one out with her fav color or something. Don't make it a big deal.

 My 8 (now 9)and 10 year old girls wear sports bras. There was no issue or embarrassment. I bet she'll be fine.
