I found a great resource online for buying your first bra: http://www.myfirstbra.us/bra_buying_guide.htm.

You can figure out your estimated bra size, learn about the different types of bras (training bra or sport bra are the best options for your first-ever bra), and then take this information to a store you are comfortable shopping at, including department stores at the mall or a Target-type large chain store.

Be sure to choose 5-10 different styles, and go try them on before you leave the store! You will change your bra preferences over the years, and find what is most comfortable. You also want to make sure you get a skin-tone color, so that it won't show through T-shirts (white bras actually show through white shirts more than skin-tone if you have fair skin).

Check out the resource link I provided above, and feel free to come back to this site if you have any additional questions! Good luck!
