Hold your bra in front of you and lean forwards so that your breasts drop into the cups. Then fasten the underband around your body onto the loosest hook and eye. If you have difficulty attaching the bra behind your back then just fasten the bra at the front and turn it around.
Hold the base of the underwire or the band and scoop your breasts fully into the cups. Your nipples shoul dbe in line with the seam of the cups – or roughly centred in the cup if there is no seam.
Lean forward, hold the wires under the breasts and jiggle the bra. Your breasts will fall into the cup and sit higher when you stand up straight. The wires should be sitting on the ribcage and not on the breast tissue.
Adjust the straps. Remember that the underband provides most of the support, not the straps. So they should feel firm but comfortable. You will only need to adjust the straps when you are putting a new bra on for the first time.
