All About Breasts & Bra Sizes
Breasts can start growing as early as age 8 or as late as 13.
Breast Development Stages
Age 8-12: Nipple elevation only. This is a wide age range but we are all different. At first the only thing that will happen is that your nipple will stand out a bit.
Age 13: About a year or so later, your breast bud will form. This stage is called "budding"; your areola (that's the darker area around the nipple) will get a little larger.
Age 14: Another year later, your breasts will start to get more elevated and your areola will widen further.
Age 15-16: Your breast size might stay unchanged, or get fuller. Also your breasts will begin to take shape. Your nipple will stick out and might form a secondary mound.

The ABCs of Bra Sizes
Wearing the right size bra can decrease the number of other problems a girl will have with her bra. For instance, a bra that's the right size won't pinch, gap, or slide around. So it makes sense to spend some time learning about bra sizes.
There are two parts to a bra's size: the chest size (also called the band size) and the cup size. The chest or band size is represented by a number (32, 34, 36, etc.) and is the part of the bra that runs across a girl's chest and around her back. The cups are the parts of the bra that hold the breasts and come in letter sizes (AA, A, B, C, etc.).
More than 20% of the girls surveyed believe that breast cancer is caused by infection, tanning, drug use, stress, and breast injury or bruising.
63% of women want bigger boobs.
Both men and women agree that a C cup is the ideal size.
The national average bra size is 34D.
