How do I tell my mom I need a bra?

Many girls have this question. It can be tough to get up the courage to raise the subject, but if you're ready for a bra, be brave and ask. You might say something like, "Mom, I noticed that I'm starting to develop, so I'd like to get a bra." You have lots of choices — from the traditional bra with straps to sports bra and tank designs.
