A Guide to Putting on Your Intimates

How To Put On Your Bra - The Perky Lady

 A Guide to Putting on Your Intimates

Ah, the simple act of donning a bra—something you've mastered through the years, right? But, do you really know how to put on your bra? Probably not. Don’t worry! This is a judgment-free zone, I am solely focused on ensuring you love what you wear, find comfort, and have a sense of joy, banishing any bra dread from past experiences.
Some of us recall the hand-me-down bras from well-meaning moms or cringe-worthy initiation stories involving public displays. Followed by little to no instruction for anything else dealing with this dreaded or embarrassing right of passage. Not to worry, The Perky Lady is here to navigate this journey with you.
Did you think there was only one way to put on a bra? Surprise! Technically there is no wrong way to put your bra on. However, there is a way that is easy on your bras (and surprisingly your body). Who doesn’t want to extend the life of their bra and maintain its maximum comfortability and performance. I encourage you to embrace the method that suits you best. After all, you are an adult and you can make your own choices. However, let's explore the pros and cons to make your experience even more delightful.
  • Slip your arms through the straps.
  • Bend forward at your waist. Gravity lends a helping hand here, aligning your breast tissue into the cups. 
  • Stand up and fasten on the loosest set of hooks behind your back. This step ensures proper support and longevity.
Tip: Take each side of the rear of the bra band in your respective thumb and forefinger.
  • Ensure the underwires are right up under your breast fold. Pull the rear of the band down in back so that it is at least parallel with the front, although a bit lower tends to work best. 
  • Adjust your breast tissue into the cups using the Swoop, Scoop, & Split technique. 
Do a happy dance!
For those with limited shoulder mobility, arthritis or other physical limitations, bending forward might pose a challenge. Try securing the bra lower behind on your back without the straps on. Then make gentle adjustments to work the bra up to wear it should be before pulling the straps over your shoulders. Alternatively, enlist eager hands for a bonding moment and a helping hand in getting your day started.
Still struggling with hooking behind. No worries, sometimes it takes a little practice just like anything else new. If your limitations simply do not allow for the behind method, our experts have tons of body and bra friendly tips to make it as easy as possible to put on your bra. 
In the world of bras, there's no right or wrong way—only what works for you! This suggested way ensures not only a comfortable fit but also prolongs the life of your beloved bra. Whether you're shopping for new intimates or seeking a stress-free and enjoyable experience, trust the experts at The Perky Lady.
