I don't like wearing bras. when I get home ( back from school run etc) I always take them off.
especially when I was pg (every time) I had to take them off quickly at odd locations, when I felt sick - although normally in the car,

but I either can't take my t-shirt or top off coz II was/am in public or just can't be bothered.

so I do it the "Flasdance" way ever since I saw the film. it's quicker.

is it just me or others do this too?

I do it do... Think lots of people do! Flashdance is fab movie too, bought the DVD the other day.

I'm embarrassed to admit I've never seen Flashdance, so not sure what the Flashdance bra removal is, but if it involves undoing it, slipping the straps off under the sleeves of your top and fishing it out, then yes grin

Years of practise at school swimming lessons. smile

AnyFucker Mon 24-Jun-13 13:47:45

yes, if I am understanding the "Flashdance" thing correctly

I have been with DH for many years, but he is always a little shock and awe when I do this grin

Just because men can't do it with their pants!

I've been known to put mine on this way in the dim and distant past if I found it in last night's bag on the way to work blush

Yes, and leaving radom bras in your car is most blush when your the one student with a car and give lifts to male student friends without thinking.

This has always amazed boyfriends, they've never quite understood how it comes off grin

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Mon 24-Jun-13 14:20:03

Yes, now I know what this is. I then fling it at my husband and he puts it on his head. blush

Itsaboatjack Mon 24-Jun-13 14:20:24

It's usually the first thing I do when I get home.

Flobbadobs Mon 24-Jun-13 14:22:53

Yes, and like AF's husband mine s always without fail impressed grin

MortifiedAdams Mon 24-Jun-13 14:25:44

I havent seen flashdance. Im presuming you mean unclipping and pulling it out of one sleeve? If so, yup!

amazingmumof6 Mon 24-Jun-13 14:28:30

moomins - but I can also do it with some of my strechier knickers too!grin

I won a Flashdancw tshirt once from a competition in Blue Jeans magazine. That was 30 years ago shock. I can't take my bra off like that as I can't reach round the back. I pull my arms through the straps, twizzle it round and take it out from underneath my jumper.

I love the episode of Friends where Rachel attempts this to try and impress Joshua and it goes horribly wrong!

plainjaney Mon 24-Jun-13 14:41:54

I do this, and I'm giggling at LyingWitchInTheWardrobe comment as well because my DH also puts it on his head then starts doing WWII Pilot impressions...

On the subject of Bras do you ladies put yours on? I was watching something on TV the other night and she put her bra on forwards and fastened it herself at the back! Must be witchcraft because I'm buggered if I can do that! Have to fasten it at the front and spin it blush

Moominsarehippos Mon 24-Jun-13 14:44:09

Bloody hell, amazing - that's either very slack elastic or you have awfully short legs! Is there a YouTube clip at all..??

WilsonFrickett Mon 24-Jun-13 14:44:28

I do this! I also have just learned to put my bra on forwards and fasten it at the back. I'm 42. Every day's a learning day.

Lovelygoldboots Mon 24-Jun-13 15:02:37

I'm a front hooker ans spinner. My DD is 11 and has just started wearing bras and does this too. I'm very proud grin

RubberBullets Mon 24-Jun-13 15:07:13

I always used to do up at the front and spin round but have now learnt that if your bra is loose enough to do this easily then it doesn't fit properly. Now I have a proper fitting bra I have had to adjust and can now do up at the back. It's awkward and fiddly but worth it for a proper fitting bra.

plainjaney... my husband does that too, not very well. He also does his 'fly' impression (with the cups as the 'bug eyes'). He does it pretty well but I wish he wouldn't... blush
