slightly o/t, but i wonder what the criteria of readiness actually are...?
i got buds at 10 and was a d-cup at 12. I wasn't "ready" according to my mother either, when i had buds. One day my dad saw me skipping (jumprope) with 2 friends with my arms across my chest and the next weekend i was taken to get a bra.
my mother thought teenage girls were little whores. she called me a little whore for going on BCPs. i still don't know what her criteria of readiness for the holy ownership of bra was. from the way she treated me during the bra shopping trip either i still hadn't met them or i had and doing so had made me a Bad Person.
We must have had the same mother - first you were a bad person for even thinking about something as adult/dirty as a bra before you "needed" one, then you were a bad person for growing up and actually needing one.
