Tween Bras 101: Finding the Perfect Fit for Every Girl's Needs

Image credits: yellowberry

If it’s about time for your tween to get their very first bra, you’ve come to the right place. For most women, finding a well-fitting bra is a challenge, and unfortunately, this is true even for young girls who are still developing. Training bras need to be supportive and comfortable (no underwires, please), and they also need to be minimalistic, because tweens don’t need a lot of padding or push-up power.

On that note, most of the best bras for tweens are more like bralettes or bandeaus. They provide a low level of support with room to grow and lack the features that can cause discomfort (like tight straps, hook and eye closures, and boning). Plus, the very best ones are built to handle the day-to-day excitement that comes with being a tween—like running around during recess or jumping on a trampoline after school. 

How We Found The Best Tween Bras

Our Top 10 lists are built with the help of our data-powered ranking algorithm, a tool that uses information from various sources (such as social media, best-seller lists, and more) to determine which products are the best of their kind. Once our algorithm comes up with a ranking, we do our own additional research to note anything we’d want to know if we were buying the products (such as whether something runs small or large). Ahead, see which tween bras made the final cut, from brands like Maidenform and Old Navy, as well as Yellowberry and Bleuet.

REVIEW HIGHLIGHT
"This bra is exactly what my daughter had in mind when it came to a first bra. My daughter has sensitivities to certain aspects of clothing—especially when she can “feel” the seams or elastic. We have gone through many brands trying to find one that felt soft yet provided support. Yellowberry has been a game changer!"

Best Tween Padded Bra

THE STYLE
Unlike many trainers, the Bleum Petal Bra is padded, but the pads are crafted from super-soft fabric and sewn in place so they don't move around in the washing machine or elsewhere. Plus, this bra is reversible and comes color-blocked so it's almost like getting two styles in one.

REVIEW HIGHLIGHT
"Best bras ever for my girl! She’s nine and I’ve tried several bras she hated and complained about. We tried these and she loves them. She doesn’t complain at all now about having to wear a bra. Thank you!"

THE STYLE

REVIEW HIGHLIGHT
"Very comfortable and soft; my almost 10 year old really likes these. She has even slept in them some nights since they arrived. Provides modesty while being age appropriate, so I think it’s a great first bra for girls."

Best Tween Bra 2-Pack

THE STYLE
Hanes has been making undergarments for over 100 years now, so it's safe to say they've perfected the craft. The brand's Seamless Bra for girls is lightweight and stretchy with removable cups and adjustable straps. Plus, the ruching in the center allows the fit to expand, making this a great option for those who are still developing.

REVIEW HIGHLIGHT
"We went through lots of different bras to try to find ones that worked! These are inexpensive, appropriate, discreet, and comfortable. They provide the perfect coverage, not showing anything through, but not adding to the bust size. These work great for my 10-year old of average build and typical budding for her age. She's been wearing them for about eight months now. I purchased a size large for her. The inserts do sometimes fall out in the wash, but that's common with many adult sports bras too."
