Front Closure Bras
When it comes to building your bra collection, you should make sure it’s as diverse and dynamic as the rest of your wardrobe. Along with your traditional T-shirt bra, push-up bra, strapless, convertible and sports bras, we recommend you should also consider a front closure bra - an open front bra with a front clasp between the breasts.
Sure, front hook bras might not be the style you normally wear, but they come with several advantages you might want to consider.
What is a front closure bra?
Also called a front clasp bra or a front clip bra, the front closure bra has a closure (a clasp) in the front, between the cups, instead of the traditional hook and eye closure in the back. This front closure bra design is found in many different styles of bra, including sports bras, push-ups, longlines, racerbacks, and more. Front closure bras are most popular for their ease of wear. They’re simple and painless to take on and off. In addition, front closure bras have a smooth, seamless back without the bumps and interruption of the smooth line in the back caused by a regular hook and eye back closure.
The advantages of a front closure bra
If you’re one of the many women who have some difficulty reaching the back of their bra band (due to limited mobility or general discomfort), front closure bras are a great solution. You won’t have to worry about straining yourself trying to reach a traditional back closure. Instead, slip your arms through the straps and hook it in the front between the cups. For many women, this is a much more convenient and comfortable alternative.
Other women need a special back design, such as a T-back or racerback. A front clasp allows for straps to be closer together in the back, which helps when you need more versatility under trickier tops such as tanks and other sleeveless tops.
The ability for front hook bras to have straps that are closer in the back also helps if you have narrow shoulders and struggle with your straps slipping in a traditional bra. Closer straps means your straps will stay in place on your narrow shoulders.
From practicality to style versatility and comfort, it’s always a good idea to have at least one front closure bra in your lingerie wardrobe. Choose from our large variety of front closure bra styles that are available in plus sizes now!
