Putting on your bra might seem so simple. You just connect the hook to the eyes then put the straps on over your shoulder and bingo bango it’s on. Almost like putting on any other type of clothing on. Well your bra is on, but there is a bit more to it than that.

Some people prefer to hook their bra from behind. Some women prefer to hook it together in front, then turn it around  so the cups are in front.  Either way is good as long as you use the last hook and eye when you first buy your bra.  If this is the first time trying on a bra in the style, size, and or brand, then you might want to hook your bra in front, so you know for sure that your on the right hook and eye.

Now your going to lean forward at a 45 degree angle with the straps still down. You want to make sure that the underwire makes contact with crease along the breast. You might have to try moving underwire up a bit with your other hand. If you have “arm pit fat” or “back fat” you will want to reach up and smooth that fat in to your cups. That is part of your breast too.  Now to make sure your breast are sitting in the proper position inside the cup, put each hand on the part of your bra where the band meets the underwire on the outside of your breasts.

Let’s make a few adjustments. If you feel that you want you straps to be tighter then you can tighten them now. You want want to be able to run two fingers along your bra straps. The two finger method means gives you a comfortable strap fit. Keep in mind that you should adjust your straps every time you put on your bra.

You want to hold  the side of your bra in place  still in the 45 to 90 degree angle and jiggle your breast a few time. You don’t have to jiggle like you need your college tuition paid,  just a few times until you feel like your breast are sitting in the cup well.

You can now stand up straight. If you feel that you need to readjust the straps and make them a bit tighter then do so. Make sure to check the straps again using the two finger method.

Your bra is on properly. Please check the fit in the mirror everyday. Even if you know that your bra fits well, the fit will change over time as bra get stretched out. A good bra that you take care of can last you about 2 to 3 years. So as it stretches you can tighten the straps and go in on the hook and eye.

Good Luck
