How Do You Put a Bra On? The Answer Is More Controversial Than You'd Think!

woman clasping braThere's a huge debate raging among us, ladies. And this time it's not political nor does it have anything to do with a parenting issue. It all stems from a simple question: Do you clasp your bra in the back or hook it in the front and slide it into place? 


Whether you're a front-clasper or a fasten-it-first-and-slide-it-over-your-head-like-a-T-shirt or swivel-it-around-your-waist gal, chances are you think your way is the right way! 

After a quiz was posted on BuzzFeed asking readers to weigh in on just how they get their over-the-shoulder-boulder-holders into place, hilarity ensued as commenters sparred over the perfect way to put on a bra. Here are some of the funniest reactions, first, from the front-claspers:

"What sort of animal has the capacity to clasp it behind their back????" -- Alicia Rosa

"I don't have time for any of that back latching wizardry." -- Stephanie Lynn

"I put the bra on (already clasped) over my head like I'm putting on a shirt. I don't have time or the energy for anything else!" -- Rachel Hunter

"Same man, I got no time for trying to match up hooks and giving myself arm cramps in the process." -- Amanda Wilson

(This next one sounds like way too much exercise in the morning -- especially if you haven't had coffee yet!) 

"I fasten it and then shimmy it up over my legs/hips/waist and slip my arms through." -- Amalia Lytle

Some feel reaching your hands up behind your back is just physically not possible:

"Yeah, try back-clasping with HH cups and four hooks......#NotGonnaHappen." -- Sherri Numbles

Point taken!
