My daughter refuses to wear a back closure bra. She's embarrassed that others should see she wears a bra at such a young age. She has now the regular sports bra but it gives no support at all. Any recommendations for a good sports bra with adjustable straps?

A 10 year old doesn't need much support. Take her for a professional fitting for tight sports bras. If they're not loose they should look good.

What about a bra with the closure at the front? There are some good supportive sports bras that do that.

The local stores here don't have options for sports bra. She's already developed and needs good support. I'm thinking to try front closure but most come padded which she doesn't need cuz it will make her look even more full.

Just has my daughter fitted at Myself Lingerie in Boro Park and they gave her Wacoal underwire sports bra after she rejected several regular bras for discomfort. It wasn’t cheap ($65) but I found it online in funky colors for half the price so I bought one and am going to get her others that way.

Thanks. Do those have hooks in the back? I'm looking for ones without back closure.

I bought it at Macy's and the cheaper color just sold out but just do a search for
Wacoal Sport High-Impact Underwire Bra 855170
I saw it for sale in lavender in other places and it's definitely available all over for full price. I do recommend you get her professionally fitted the first time though.

It does, I don't think you can get an underwire without hooks. But my daughter didn't mind it.

I'm going to be mean here, but I don't think that that's a good idea, depending on her size. My sister was a DD at age 10 and by 14 was a G. Sports bras are NOT supportive for big sizes and although she was embarrassed, you have to get over that. I mean seriously, it's not like people are going to be surprised she is wearing such a bra if she has such large breasts. It's not like her size is a secret, it's fully visible.

Puberty is getting earlier....perhaps you can try and find someone her age with the same issue for her to connect with and feel more normal. There's plenty of girls like her.

Supportive sports bras are ... supportive. How do you think larger women exercise?

OP, try Athleta, Jockey and Maidenform, all of which have front zip sports bras. Or check This

Not meant to be worn all the time, just for excersize...

What would be the benefit (in general) of a front closure bra?

The sales lady at nordstrom told me that a front close bra is really not a good choice for someone large breasted. It wont be supportive enough.

The one I posted about is underwire with hooks and just as supportive as a regular bra.
