I'm 17 years old and have desperately needed new bras for at least a year, they don't fit me at all and can cause me great pain when I do wear the ones I have or nearly all of them are broken or ripped- but I still have to wear them because they're all I have. I ask my mum nicely and politely if we can go to get some (I wouldn't dream of going on my own because of my anxiety and I have no money) but she puts it off so much, and when we discuss actual plans she says that she won't pay for them or that I have to contribute? I'm not asking for fancy bras, I just want something basic that actually fits and won't cause me any pain anymore. My dad pays so much money a month of child support so that I can have these basic needs, and apparently in the past she has actually used this to buy herself things, so am I wrong for asking my mum to pay for at a push two basic bras so that I'm no longer in pain? She makes me feel terribly guilty. I know this is a weird question to ask on this forum but any opinion will do.
