back adjusting?

Why do most bras have their adjustment slider thingys in the back where it's hard to adjust them? I might be lame but, If I put on a bra and I need to adjust the straps I usually take the bra off and guestimate how far to adjust then put it back on. If I need to further adjust or fine tune them a little , I'll take it back off and do it again.
I know I've had a bra or two in the past that had front adjusting straps ,but I can't recall what kind they were. So I know front adjusting bras are possible.
What I'd like to know is "Why are most bra's straps back adjusting and not front?"

  • I think it has to do with the lessened range from the front and potential sternum irritation. I know I wouldn't want the adjusters sitting on the sternum area or on top of the shoulders. This is just my guess though!

  • it is annoying tho. I can usually get them to adjust by just taking the straps off and reaching around, rather than taking the whole bra off, but still
