    Woohoo!

    I've never been able to do that. Not a ROM problem, just lack of coordination

    Yay! So maybe I can do mine by Christmas?

    I see constant improvement in ROM and strength on surgical shoulder and while I can now put my hand behind my back, still can't raise it up that high behind my back just yet....

    Congrats on the new found flexibility!

    maybe a stupid question though.... why try to hook your bra behind your back.... I always hook mine in the front then spin it around before I put the shoulder straps on... granted I'm an A cup, so maybe its not easy to do it that way when your are better endowed?

    On the other hand, it never occurred to me to do it the way you described until I saw someone do it in the locker room at the gym.

    Woohoooo - Congratulations!

    I remember as a 12 year old girl fighting with my little "training" bra with the one little hook to figure out how to do this This is a great sign of your recovery from shoulder surgery!
