poll! how to put on a bra

i did a similar poll a few years ago, before we had clicky abilities. :) and now i'm curious if bust size has anything to do with method.
[Poll]

Re: poll! how to put on a bra

  • I'm so glad that somebody else wonders this stuff too. :)
  • LMAO at go-go gadget arms. You crack me up Smile
  • i wonder about many, many random things. i definitely have an inquisitive nature - always want to know how/why things work.

    these numbers are all over the place! i really thought larger busts would hook in front and smaller would hook in back. very interesting...

  • Is there going to be a poll about what sizes people think are larger/average/small? 

    Because I think I'm average, but I am guessing my small friends would say I'm on the larger end of the spectrum. 

  • wow! I am shocked how many hook in the front and move to the back. I don't do that and figure everyone just put them on and hooked in the back.

     

    interesting poll.

    I hook in the front & shimmy and I was shocked at how many people have go-go-gadget arms!  Big Smile

    Ditto. Isn't it simply easier to fasten in the front? I will go-go-gadget to take it off sometimes, but it is easier to see what you are doing. Especially in the morning.

  • Gofurr---I have no idea. I am larger busted and have underwire and need to position them just right which I find easier to do BEFORE I hook myself in. I also have just always done is that way. I would think the material would rub or just annoy me to do the other way. I guess I have never really thought to much about it since I have always done is that way.

     

    I suddenly feel like I am talking about a horse or something :)

    according to the inter nets, the current average bra size in america is 36C. but there are definitely conflicting reports.

  • i am very impressed with all the back-hookers. (LOL that sounds sooo bad).

     

    I hook in the front myself - even though i have freekishly long arms and am double jointed in the elbows, i can't do the back hook.

  • I hook in the back, leaning forward and then jiggle the girls into their cups and then slide the straps over my shoulders.

    I definitely go-go-gadget to remove my bra.  But that's because I don't have to worry about being coordinated enough to meet the hooks up!

    Whoever mentioned underwire:  I wear underwire, too.  But if I try to position myself and then hook behind, I end up getting all out of position while trying to hook the bra.  Maybe it just depends on how you learn?  I am almost positive I hook the way I do (snicker) because that's how my mom taught me.

    For several years in college, my favorite bras had the hooks in the front.  It was awesome!

  • I hook mine before I put it on, and put it on like a shirt!

    For reference, I'm a healthy B hahaha

    Considering obesity in America, I can't imagine that's actually true.

  • Interesting poll -- I actually never considered that anyone might hook a back-closure bra from the front and then spin it around! I'm a back-closure person all the way...I think if I were able to turn it around I'd be stretching out the fabric really fast and it wouldn't fit/hold things up right anymore.
  • I am a 38F - I put it on loosely, bend over, shake the girls in, go upright and hook in back.  Then reposition as I was taught at Petticoat Fair.  It is the way that I have always done it.

  • wow.. actually I'm really surprised at how many people hook in the back. I think that would take way more coordination than I possess. Personally I try and buy the front closer bras as much as possible. Much more comfortableSmile
