Front Closing Bras: Pretty and Practical Lingerie Solutions

Front Closing Bras: Pretty and Practical Lingerie Solutions

  |   By Elisabeth Dale

Many people prefer to wear front closing bras, and now there are plenty of options in this bra category. 

Summer tops and dresses often require me to switch to racerback front-close styles. But front-fastening bras feature traditional strap placements, too. And women who suffer from shoulder or arm mobility issues prefer to wear them year-round. Putting on a front closing bra means less pain and strain. Many seniors also favor front clasps because they are way easier to take off. (No reaching around your back to fidget with hooks.) Finally, you’ll find front closure bras more practical if your bra fitting issue is strap slippage or sloping shoulders.

Today there’s a broad range of front-close bra styles from which to choose. From lightweight bralettes, longlines, underwire, and back-smoothing styles, there’s something for everyone. And they aren’t just offered in boring black and white colors, either. You’ll find pastels, prints, and bold solids. There’s also everything from lovely lace to everyday seamless cups and even push-ups.
