Girls, Number of hooks on a bra?

Do the number of hooks on a bra have anything to do with how supportive it is?

  • Yes. The main support of a bra actually comes from the band which is why it's so important that women are properly fitted. If you look through a bra catalog you'll find that strapless and like balconettes have wider bands because they're relying less on the straps and cups contributing to the structure. It's also why larger cup sizes tend to have wider bands since more support is needed.

  • Wider band = more hooks = more supportive. Elementary physics.

    You'll probably be able to get away with a single hook, unless your gynecomastia is a problem.

  • Yes, when my chest was bigger, before I lost weight, several of my bras had four hooks, but now that I'm slightly smaller they only have three.
