It's not that hard to reach behind you and fasten it really quick. The ones made of plastic can break easily leaving you flying free at some unexpected moment mid-day.
It was not until the first part of the 19th century that the industry was furthered in the United States.
One of the greatest improvements in the attachment was the "Delong hump", patented in 1889 by the Richardson & Delong Hook and Eye Company of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which was a raised elevation or "hump" in the wire hook that prevented the eye from slipping out of the hook, "except at the will of the wearer". Beecher patented his hook-and-eye in June 1900 with the U. Patent Office; in 1902, an updated version was submitted that consisted of an attachable hook-and-eye, without any stitching required.
Today this labor-saving method comes on either silk or cotton tape, depending on the firmness and strength needed.
In addition to their application on brassieres, bustiers, corsets and other fine lingerie, a single hook-and-eye closure is often sewn above the top of the zipper to "finish" it and take stress off the fastening on a skirt, dress or pants.
they are super comfortable and they are actually in the Victoria Secret magazines, yet you dont have to buy from there cuz they are expesive but its an idea :) my self being a C-cup i recommend it too anyone bigger then a B-cup, as thats what its made for : D good luck! Well, I will spare details, but lets just say the girls fit without adjustment and I can do a 3 hooked strapless bra blindfolded. My mama trained me the difficult way I guess..oh well. I would like to assure Sweatpea that I cannot visualize this AT ALL ...
Reading through this thread I am shocked to see the I do not put my bra on like the majority of other women. and therefore require Miss Pea to send me a sequence of detailed photographs of her performing the process so that I can properly understand the technique ... product_id=LBCR0005&nav=There is the one I have and it is SO comfy...I like// i started to wear my moms lingerie ..i used to wear those hot bra and panties .. I love surprises ;) which means I like surprises too.Boobs together for a night on the town, and boobs apart for work or a family get together. I think most of us girls don't give a crap about front or back hooks, its just for the day to day a functional peice of clothing. I personally find it easier to lean over and put my bra on and fasten it in the back.And too Dilluxia, have you ever tried getting a 'racer back' bra?Gravey, I tried something different, after the first touch by him, I turned around on sofa faced down and asked him to unclasp my white cotton bra off. Nice I am sure if I wanted to, he would snap it back on too. All I know is, if you want to make 5 Pounds of fat look good, just put a "Nipple" on it !
