For teenagers and younger girls, those first bras can be eagerly anticipated as grownup or dreaded as restrictive. Either way, comfort is key. Comfortable teen bras will typically have soft cups, either unlined or lightly lined. Some may have padding to add shape and provide modesty. They may have additional comfort features, like front-adjusting straps or front-closure.
Some teens find sports bras the most comfortable, liking the racerback design and athletic styling. Comfort bras are also available in crop-top styles. One sizing note on teen bras: some brands that specifically cater to tweens and teens are cut smaller than traditional sizes and may run small on women.
