When I get where I'm going, hit up a bathroom again to remove the hands-free. (my hands-free has shoulder straps to give that little bit of lift that I so desperately need, hence needing to be in a private place to put it on under my bra)
Can you just put it on in the car before you start driving? If you wear a nursing bra or tank that has a built in bra or underwire/heavy supprt you can use the hairtie trick. Tie two hair ties together, slip one over the flange, and then hook the other one over the clip of the top. then bring the tank or bra cups up and over the flanges a bit just for extra support. That probably makes no sense lol. I'll have to take a picture when I do it
