One of my fondest memories from high school was of the day a girl in one of my classes was reprimanded because her bra strap was showing. The teacher informed her that she would need to change into her gym clothes. The girl in question said, "That won't be necessary," and immediately began to remove her bra.
The teacher turned a violent shade of scarlet and told her not to worry about the straps, but to be mindful of them in the future.
I wish I'd had the chutzpah to do that. Unfortunately, I spent the majority of my youth ashamed of my breasts. A teacher in an "Our Developing Bodies" class (required in the fifth grade) announced to the entire class--while looking pointedly at me--that "some girls wear coats to cover premature development of breasts", and scarred me for life. The coat had more to do with a nightmare I kept having (the kind where you are walking around school naked, actually) than my complete lack of breast development.
I'm still, 13 years later, uncomfortable if my chest is not covered. Whatever you decide on this matter, it might be wise to make sure the teacher won't make any comments to your daughter or her classmates.
