Okay, time for dd11 to upgrade from the undershirts she's been wearing for everything. I have no idea where the best place is to take her to look for something, or brands to check out. I want her to be comfortable, she still has some lingering sensory issues. Suggestions?

DD's preferred bras are sports bras (and, until recently, bralettes, which are sort of in between a sports bra and a regular bra, in that they pull over the head, but do not offer athletics-level support) from Target.

We had good luck at Justice.

 

Their stuff looks decent quality. Couldn't convince DD to try any on last time we were there, even though she'd buy the rest of the store if she could...she's too set on her Target bras.

We did too.  They were soft and had a variety of colors.  They also have these little removable pads if your daughter is concerned about keeping things looking smooth  :001_smile: which mine was!

Dd has been wearing these Maidenform Girl Big Girls' Slim Seamfree Ruched Crop, Nude, Medium https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QKGB4EY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_BJ2MxbH0HE9NM

 

She really likes them.

I bought her a couple cheaper ones at walmart that are similar but they don't have as much coverage from top to bottom (they really arent made to accommodate any volume in the cup area).

Oh no! Don't make me gooooooo. So much cheetah! And glitter! And furry accessories!! :)

I didn't have dd try on bras there but I thought their underwear looked really nice.

Around the house and under loose shirts dd will still just wear a Justice cami with the shelf bra.

I really like these Maidenform bras, but my daughter prefers bralettes from The Children's Place. The bralettes have minimal support, but are comfortable. Because they have a some Lycra in them, the coverage is a little better than a 100% cotton cami (IMO). The Maidenform bras have thin, removable cups for more coverage.

 

If your daughter's sensory issues require something even more comfortable, you could try Decent Exposures.

Both my sensory sensitive girls started with these:

Then they both graduated to these (though youngest still REALLY wishes the first were still enough support!):

Both are very soft and comfy. I've heard great things about the Justice bras as well, but we'd already settled on these by the time I'd heard that, so we never did try anything there. 

 

Good luck!

DD12 has ongoing sensory issues, and lots of what she initially likes gets abandoned after a few wearings. 

 

These styles from Target have stood the test of time.

 

This one by Hanes is her comfy favorite for everyday wear:

and this is a close second, with removable pads:

She gets light weight sports bras, also at Target, when she needs more support for dance class.

For the past year my 13 yo has worn either a sports bra (Reebok kids medium 10-12) or a long cami (Aeropostale XS with shelf bra) and these have been sufficient for her. She's also added in some that her sister wore briefly that are kind of a cross between these two. They are by Champion and we got them at Target. One is a T back--so very like a sports bra, and the other that she prefers has two straps. She wants more of these and we have them on our back-to-school shopping list.
