Most of us are taught to put the bra on by clasping it in the front then sliding the clasp around to your back and picking up the straps and putting it on.


Most of your bra's support comes from the band and doing this tugs and stretches it which is a big no. Also you take the risk of messing up any wiring that may be in the cups of the bra.

The correct way to put on a bra is by putting your arms through the straps first and reaching your arms back and clasping the middle.

Why clasp on the middle hook?

Because when the band starts to stretch out you can go to the tightest hook and on days when you're feeling a little bloated you can move to the last hook.

    There is no right or wrong way to put on a bra. It can be adjusted once it is on. And, this young woman (in the video):will, if she’s lucky, get older and arthritic and be glad she knows the obvious alternative to reaching behind her back to fasten a bra.

    I don’t have a choice. The “preferred” way is out of the question since I suffered a rotator cuff injury, badly deranging the tendons, necessitating surgery to repair and reattach them. Actually, there is no wrong way to put on a bra as long as you get those girls corralled and the hooks securely fastened! What I’d like to know is how to put on a stretchy bra with no fasteners when the wearer has wide shoulders. Actually, I think all bras should fasten in the front. It makes much more sense than back -fastened bras and these days, the fasteners can be easily camouflaged in the design of the bra. Thank you!
