    My mum got me some bras today and they're really nice, but the annoying thing is that I'm now at an awkward stage where 34A is too small/tight but 34B is a lil too big Idk what to do

    Where is too big? The back size or the cup or both? It is most likely you are just wearing the wrong size altogether.

    Go get yourself properly measured. I was wearing a 34C for years, then finally went and got measured and was told I was 28DD. I felt like an idiot for wearing something 6" too big for so long and thinking it fit.*

    You need to go to the shop with your Mum to be measured - especially if you're still growing. There's no way she can know what size you are without taking you with her.

    Definitely look into getting measured and trying some on in the store. The women that help are often so helpful, and will help you look out for the signs when something does or doesn't fit. If this isn't an option for whatever reason, try a 36A. The back could be the problem, rather than the cup size, although it's impossible for me to know over the internet

    The back size is fine, it's the actual cup. Idk how to explain it but there's a small space between the top of the cup and the top of my boob

    I would try to get a fitting. I went to M & S and had it done by myself for the first time, but you can go with your mum if you want. There are loads of different styles, so your size might not always be the same. I actually have bras of 3 different sizes now haha. But they're really helpful and nice, it's not even that awkward (and I'm super awkward), and you can get a really comfy bra that actually fits well. Good luck!

    tbh if your boobs are growing it's not the end of the world if your bra is a tiny bit too big, saves you buying another one in a few months

    however I agree with the suggestion that you should be going to a professional and getting a fitting while your bra size is changing (and tbh even after you've finished growing it's helpful to get properly fitted bras) - then you get something comfier which is the right fit (I'm another person who wore a 34C for ages before being told I'm a 30DD and thought it was fine) and the assistants can also tell you how the sizes vary by bra/style which you won't know if you just pick up a bunch of 32B bras... eg I often find balcony bras run a bit smaller than t shirt style bras
