3. Insert strong hand/arm through the bra’s body and shoulder straps.  Pull straps up past the elbow.
4. While bending body and head slightly forward, use strong hand to pull body strap over head and towards the back.
5. Pull the bra cups down and fix for comfort.
6. Position shoulder straps comfortably on each shoulder.
