- Put on the band and hook it. It doesn't really matter whether you prefer the put-it-on-straight method or the put-it-on-in-front-and-twist-it-around method.
- The straps should not be too tight at this point. If they are, loosen them up. Once you are used to this bra you can keep them on the length you like.
- Lean forward and put the straps on your shoulders and fit your breasts into your cups.
- This is the most important part! Neglect this step at your peril! Reach into the cups, to the side, under the wire in your armpit. Pull the flesh forward and up. If you have “armpit fat,” pull this in too. Trust me.
- At this point, if you have bulging or "four boobs" above the top of the cups, it means you are wearing the wrong size!
- Now you can tighten the straps. Don't tighten them so that they are pulling on your shoulders, just tight enough so that there isn't any slack and there is a slight bit of tension.
Please note that, if you are wearing the correct size, the cups will probably seem a little bit "empty" and too big until you scoop the flesh into them. But as long as the top of the cups sits smoothly on your breasts after you scoop in, the cups should be a good size.
