Finding the perfect bra is an exciting journey towards comfort and self-expression. It's about discovering a piece of clothing that feels just right, offering support and style during those growing years. 

But, with so many options out there, finding good bras for teens can feel tricky. This guide is here to make that adventure as smooth and enjoyable as possible, ensuring every girl finds a style that feels like it was made just for them.

The Journey to Finding the Best Bras

As we just highlighted above, embarking on the search for a bra is an exciting milestone in a girl’s life. It's about more than just shopping; it's a learning experience about comfort, fit, and personal style. 

Here's how to make this journey rewarding:

  • Celebrate the Milestone: Approach shopping as a positive rite of passage. It's an opportunity for your girl to learn about their bodies and express themselves.
  • Start With Accurate Measurements: A good fit starts with knowing the right size. Measure under the bust for the band size and around the fullest part of the bust for the cup size. Many stores offer fitting services, which can be a great help. Plus, you can visit our guide on ‘How to Measure for a First Bra’ and explore some amazing tips!
  • Choose Simple, Functional Designs: Initially, opt for garments that are easy to wear and care for. Simple designs without complicated fastenings or too much lace are ideal for everyday wear and can help ease the transition into wearing them regularly.
  • Involve Them in the Process: Make shopping a joint venture. Allowing your daughter to have a say in the styles, colors, and brands they prefer can empower them and make the experience more enjoyable. And for a deeper dive, check out our detailed guide on ‘How to Buy a Bra.’

What Makes a Good Bra for Teens?

The best teen bras are more than just undergarments; they are a foundation of confidence for the day ahead. 

Here's what sets the best of the best apart:

  • Soft, Breathable Materials: A good quality garment is made from materials that feel gentle against the skin and allow it to breathe. Fabrics like cotton, modal, and bamboo are excellent choices as they wick away moisture and keep the skin cool and dry.
  • Comfortable Fit That Moves With the Body: Teens are always on the move, so their bras need to be flexible. Look for styles with stretchy fabrics and elastic bands that adapt to movements without digging in or shifting.
  • Gentle Support: The right level of support is crucial. It should be enough to reduce movement and provide shaping, but not so much that it feels restrictive. Wireless designs or soft cup bras are often perfect for providing this balance.
  • Adjustability for Growth: Teens' bodies are constantly changing. Adjustable straps and bands ensure the garment can adjust to fit changes over time.
  • Invisibility Under Clothes: A good bra should be seamless or smooth enough to wear under any outfit without showing through. Also, bras designed with minimalistic details and in neutral colors can further enhance invisibility under clothes, ensuring a sleek and uninterrupted silhouette.
  • Variety of Styles to Suit Different Needs: Whether it's a sports bra for physical activities, a lightly lined bralette for everyday wear, or a more structured garment for special occasions, having options means they can find the one for any situation.

When it comes to teen bras, one size does not fit all. Their bodies, activities, and personal preferences vary widely, making it essential to have different types for different needs. 

Here's a guide to the best styles:

Type of Bra

Best For

Why They're Great

Training Bras

Girls who are just starting to develop and need a very basic level of support and coverage

Classic training bras, like the Bleum Bra, provide a gentle introduction to wearing them. They're lightweight, comfortable, and perfect for those who don't yet need a structured garment but want to get used to wearing one.

Sports Bras

Physical activities, sports, and any high-movement situations.

Sports bras like Bleum Active Bras are designed to provide maximum support during physical activities. They help in reducing discomfort and protect breast tissue from the impacts of vigorous movement.


Everyday comfort, lounging, or layering under clothes for a stylish look.

Bralettes are the go-to for ease of wear. They come in various designs, from simple and seamless to lacy, making them a favorite for those who prioritize a comfortable fit, but still want something cute and fashionable.

Soft-Cup Bras

Wearing under tight-fitting tops or dresses.

Soft-cup bras are designed to be invisible under clothes, providing a smooth silhouette. Check out the Iris Soft Cup Bra, which is ideal for everyday wear or going out, offering a polished look.

Convertible Bras

Outfits that require different styles, like one-shoulder tops or halter dresses.

Convertible bras offer flexibility and can be adjusted according to the outfit's needs. This makes them a practical choice for those with a diverse wardrobe.

Wireless Bras

Girls who prioritize comfort or are not used to wearing bras.

Wireless bras provide gentle coverage without the pressure of underwires, making them perfect for daily wear. If you are unsure, give our discussion on the ‘Pros and Cons of Underwire Bras’ a read. 

Full-Coverage Bras

Larger busts or those seeking more coverage and support.

Full-coverage bras or Bleuet Padded Bras offer ample coverage, reducing the chance of spillage. They're ideal for anyone looking for a secure fit.

Racerback Bras

Sports or everyday wear with a twist.

Racerback bras are excellent for active teens or those looking for garments that are easy to put on and take off. They also work well under certain tops and dresses, providing versatility. If you are searching for one, explore the Aster Organic Racerback Bra by Bleuet.

Which bra should a girl wear?

The best bra for a girl to wear is one that matches her activity level, comfort needs, and personal style. For everyday wear, a soft, wireless bra or bralette is ideal for comfort and support. For sports and active days, a sports bra designed for young bodies can provide the necessary support.


At what age should a little girl wear a training bra?

Girls typically start wearing training bras between the ages of 8 and 14, but it really depends on their development and comfort. If they start showing signs of puberty or express a need for more coverage, it might be time to consider one.


Should I make my daughter wear a bra?

Deciding to wear one should be a mutual decision based on comfort, physical development, and personal readiness. Encourage open conversations about her body changes and needs, and let her express when she feels ready.
