How you fasten your bra reveals more about you than you think

By Mirror | Aug 22nd 2015 | 2 min read

Ladies, you may think you're donning underwear that no one else will see or even think about - but you're actually making a massive life statement

Putting on your bra is a very personal business, but the way you choose to do it can say a lot about you.

Whether you fasten at the front and twist it round your body - or perhaps pop your arms through and then do it up at the back - it's speaking volumes, according to a body language expert.

Patti Wood, author of Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language, and Charisma, says that the way we put on our underwear is a window into our very soul.

Speaking to Red Book, she said: "There are four distinct personality types - drivers, influencers, supporters, and careful correctors -who tend to have very unique ways of doing things, even small tasks.

"Everything you do - and the way you do it - comes together to form a story about yourself, and there's no reason your undergarments shouldn't be a part of that."

If you clasp your bra from the back...

You're a supporter: This “means you like to stick to tradition and tend to follow along with what you've always been taught”.

If you clasp your bra in the front, then twist it to the back...

You're an influencer: “You're a woman who likes to feel appreciated, supported, and look the part that you're presenting yourself as, and your lingerie fits into that.”

If you use a front clasping bra...

You're a driver: “As a driver, you look at life as a no-time-to-waste opportunity, so no one will find you fumbling with clasps that you can't even see.”

You clasp your bra and slide it over your head...

You're a perfectionist: “Consider yourself a careful corrector, meaning you like to make sure things are done right.”
