bras for tweens: help!
If you're a faithful reader of my blog, or if you've happened upon me "IRL" in the past few weeks, you know: I suddenly have double the children. My two latest family members are girls, ages 8 and 11. Ms. 11-year-old (gasp) needs an eensy weensy bra.
What's a mama, faithfully dedicated to all things boy, to do? I've never even considered the problem of bras. I chatted with Laura of oh Baby tonight and she offered two options: (1) go into her store for a "sweet little cotton crossover cotton bra" or (2) Sears. She didn't even give raves to Nordstrom -- I'd considered that as I need to get the girls shoes, too (too many complaints of "my legs hurt!" after long walks has driven me to get a good fit no matter what the price).
So I now ask what I'd never thought I'd need to (and certainly not in the first decade of the millennium): where's the best place to go to get my 11-year-old girl fitted for a bra? Please oh please. Help me. And if you can't, please meet me at Laura's new shop next to Cadillac Cafe this Saturday. And send girly vibes my way.
