Bras

OK…so if the title of this blog post seems offensive to you, close it now!

It may seem funny, or stupid, if you choose to read on, but I have a question. How do you put on your bra?

My husband and I have been together for nearly 17 years now and I still often think, when getting dressed, how amazed he was when we got around to the time he saw me putting my bra on. “What are you doing?” “I have never seen such a thing!” “No one I have ever known puts their bra on that way!” Maybe he has given up on it, as he thinks I am generally weird anyway, but I just have to ask!

Well, suffice it to say, I knew no different. Maybe I learned it from my sister. Certainly, my mom never told me or showed me what to do. We didn’t talk about such things. During gym class, no one seemed to notice…nor me them. So, what is the correct way to do this daily duty? (Sure, we might like to go without, but that is for another possible post.)

We know there are many types of bras. Front-closure, pull-over, even zip-up…soft support, heavy-duty, pointy, frilly, push-up, sleep, nursing, sport…it is endless. I am discussing the good, old-fashioned bra with hooks and eyes in the back.

Note that my husband is from the west coast and met up with a sweet, demure mid-western girl (hmmm….would I be writing this, if so?). Maybe it is regional or cultural. However, the LOGICAL thing to me is to put your bra around your waist backwards, hook it and turn it around, pull the straps up over the shoulders, nestle the girls inside and be comfy. (Or not, depending on the bra itself.) In my mind, logic rules! I even tried it the other way this morning. Just plain craziness to fumble around with those hooks when you can’t see them!

So, how do you put your bra on? Are you bold enough to answer?
