    Default Recommend comfy bralettes for a kid who doesn't want to wear bras

    Older DD wanted a bra in 4th grade before she had any reason to wear them. Younger DD is the opposite - about to head to middle school at 11.5 and should wear *something* under her tshirts and tanks but refuses the bras I've offered. (Granted, they were saved from her sister at the same age, but they're good quality and comfy - Hanna, Athleta and ON sports bras, Justice, etc). I just ordered her some HA camis in case all fails, but maybe there are new, super comfy bralettes or camis that y'all can recommend? No bows or lace or adjusters, soft and minimalist is the way to go with this kid. I would appreciate any suggestions - thank you!

    I don't have any daughters, but I was pleasantly surprised by the selection of bralettes at Target. The ones I bought are True&Co and fit your description /requirements. They are also quite affordable.

    DD eats them every day and states that they are very comfy.

    The price is right too.

    DD wears these https://www.target.com/p/girls-raceb...76#lnk=sametab and these https://www.target.com/p/girls-seaml...65#lnk=sametab. No way she would wear them if they weren't comfortable, lol.

    my 10.5 year old DD sounds like your older DD. she's been wearing bralettes for like 6 mos already and she started 5th grade. She has nothing yet but she is getting breastbuds and it is sensitive and she feels more comfortable with a bralette. She even wears one to sleep! i think she just doesn't like the sensation of clothing , sheets etc rubbing across her chest at this point..probably a sensitive area.

    My DD is picky and loves the Hanna Andersson bralettes and says they are comfy. She just got a few from Athleta Girl and she likes those as well.

    Default Recommend comfy bralettes for a kid who doesn't want to wear bras

    Dd2 (11) is wearing a mix of Hanna Andersson, Hanes, and Cat and Jack bralettes. She also has camos from Hanna Andersson and Justice. The Hanna bras are no longer on the website but maybe the outlets have some. Some of them were DD1ís. I give her another two to three months before she really needs a bra with more support. I am sure we will start at Aerie for her. I didnít need a bra with any type of support until I was at least 15 and didnít need an underwire until I was 18 (and bought one because I wanted it) so this is all new to me.
