From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A training bra (also trainer bra) is a brassiere designed for girls who have begun to develop breasts but have yet to be considered "developed" enough to allow for a standard-sized bra to fit properly. They are of simple construction and offer little, if any, support. Training bras were invented in the 1950s, in response to the desire of adolescent and pre-adolescent girls to "fit in" among their more developed peers. However, heavy marketing probably contributed to some of the demand.

Trainer bras and the age at which girls first wear bras has become a controversial topic. Some observers believe that training bras serve no functional purpose and are exploitative in that they allow entrepreneurs to benefit from, and even encourage, precocious sexuality in young girls.[1] Still, others recognize developing tissue as sensitive and, at times, in need of coverage in order to maintain comfort.
