But, bras are not something you can trust your husband to purchase. Not that MM has ever volunteered for the job. To be fair, it's considered perfectly normal for a woman to browse the men's undies aisles but thoroughly creepy for a man to lurk around the brassieres. Besides that, men just don't have the necessary information to navigate the confusing selection. The last time I saw a boy in the bra department, all he did was point at a padded bra and say, "Wow! Now they have BUILT-IN boobs!"
I'm not sure why they make push-up bras for twelve year olds but I am pretty sure that Satan was involved in the design of them. There is a ton of padding stuffed in there but very little actual fabric. And, they're neon coloured prints with cupids bows and lace! Oh, I must be in the wrong place. Somehow, I stumbled into the "Please Turn My Daughter Into A Ho" section.
I just want a simple supportive bra for a 'barely there' chest. That's all. She doesn't need to have a silhouette like Marilyn Munroe. She's not ready to be hurtled
As for me... can I please have my baby girl for a little bit longer? Just long enough for her to realize she will never need to be "pushed up".
If she is anything like her mother, she will be wearing these soon enough...
