Have you heard of Yellowberry, the perfect place to purchase your daughter’s first bra? Honestly, this is the first time I have heard of this neat company. It was founded by a girl in her Junior year of high school after bra shopping with her younger sister. She was frustrated because all of the bras either had padding, pushups, were leopard printed and the list goes on. None of the bras they saw were comfortable for her sister to wear. Nor did her sister feel like herself when trying on the bras.
The name Yellowberry comes from before a fruit is ripened it is yellow. Then it goes through different stages of yellow until it gets fully to its ripened color. Honestly, Megan tells it so much better but I think you get the gist of her message. Megan feels that the age of innocence doesn’t last for long, so it is important to let kids be kids. She lost her other younger sister at the age of 5 due to an accident on a float. You can read more about that here.
Looking back, even at my age of 48, I remember when my Mom took me to purchase my first bra. I can’t really remember how old I was, but I remember why it happened. I played softball on a Cinderella team and it wasn’t something I thought I needed. My Mom kept mentioning that we needed to go shopping for one and I ignored her mentions.
Then one day my Dad said he needed to talk to me, (I know right??), so I listened. He told me that I had come to an age that I needed to take care of myself and that with playing sports it was important to keep my chest protected when running and throwing so it was time to allow my Mom to take me shopping for a bra. Do not ask me why but that is all it took. We went shopping, just my Mom and I, and I remember feeling so embarrassed. I hid in case anyone I might know was in the vicinity of the underwear/bra area. She allowed me to pick a couple out and we went back to the dressing room. I vaguely remember being measured and then it was all done.
