One of the tell-tale signs of puberty is the development of breasts in girls. Puberty and adolescence can be tough. Besides all that hormones wrecking havoc in the body and playing tricks on the emotions, females have to undergo the development of breasts, which can be a traumatic and painful process for some. If you are a mum, godma, aunt or elder sister, don’t shy away from this beautiful stage of your daughter/god-daughter/niece/sister’s life to introduce her to the wonders of becoming a woman. Be sure to instil the importance of respect and self-care for one’s body.

Here are a couple of training bras and bralettes for the woman-to-be. I have fond memories of being accompanied by my elder sister for a bra fitting. So take this opportunity to induct the young lady into the wondrous world of womanhood.

As a fully grown woman, you are either mugging your way through exams, dipping your toes into the dating scene or doing your best to impact the boardroom while juggling the monthly cycle in the name of humankind. But before men can give birth (let’s hope in our lifetime, maybe?), women will continue to endure the trials and tribulations of the pre-menstrual symptoms (PMS), suck it up and press on during workdays. The gnawing pain, splitting headaches, sore breasts, loose bowels every month for a week are no joke.

To ease the monthly PMS, we present to you the amazing invention where uncomfortable sanitary pads are no longer needed – the period pants! And of course, on heavy days, feminine care is still necessary, but we could opt for more eco-friendly options such as the menstrual cup or reusable sanitary pads.

As Atticus Finch pointed out to his young daughter Scout in the American classic To Kill a Mockingbird,

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”

The same goes for many women who experienced motherhood and truly embraced the concept of boundless love a mother can have for one’s child. The notion of self-sacrifice and putting someone else above you have never been more apparent once you become a mother. At this stage, many women reconnect or bond with their mothers.

Thanks to the advancement in our society and being first-worlders, easing into the role of a mother does not mean 10 months of looking downy. Yahoo Shopping sourced for a few merchants where women can feel beautiful again, pre-and post-natal.
