Pretty soon is going to be my first time bra shopping on my own (assuming I'm let to do it on my own), and I'd like to make it as easy as possible. How are they organized, so I know where to look? By cup size, by designer, by type, by pattern/design? Are all the sizes in one area? Sorry if these are stupid questions.

Often the shops will group certain styles together. I depends what you're looking for really! But the actual entire bra section will be easy enough to spot (it's often called lingerie or whatever, if you get mixed up).
Anyway, so depending on where you go, sometimes they have a signature or designer or autograph collection- this is literally just the ones that will be there for the season or limited time, otherwise they will be just grouped together. The larger sizes DD+ are normally in a separate group so they're easier to find. But find the style you like, and the colour and (presuming you know your size) the smallest sizes will be at the front, and as you go back on the hangers the sizes will increase. It's pretty easy to navigate.
Just in case you want to know, they often have a section for younger girls. These bras are often more comfortable when you get your first ones and they don't have a wire (which is just to help keep the shape- it's really nothing to worry about!).
If you get stuck or aren't quite sure- just ask. The shop assistants will be happy to help and know what they're doing. I would suggest getting measured properly or by someone with experience (your mum will probably help!) and before you buy any bras, just try them on in the fitting rooms and see if they're comfortable.
Don't worry if it's weird at first! After a while, it gets much more normal!
hope this helped! Good Luck
