The Glamorise bra range is known for its strong supportive selection of bras in a great range of sizes. Their Glamorise Magic Lift Front Closure Bra has got to be hands down one of their most popular in this range. And Glamorise know how to do the front fastening bra thing well – they have a pretty broad selection of front fastening bras. (See their full range here).
Glamorise Magic Lift Front Closure Bra Features:
- Full coverage back design
- Easy to adjust front fastening hook and eye clasps
- Wide soft straps
- Lightly padded cups to create shape without underwire
- High coverage cups
- Wide sides under arms
Full coverage back design
Glamorise refers to their full coverage back design as a posture enhancing feature. The back of the glamorise magic lift front closure bra has criss crossed panels to aid in back support. This is a feature we commonly see in posture bras.
This full coverage back design not only attempts to take pressure off the shoulders, but also provides a shape smoothly results. This is certainly one of the features wearers of this style seem to rave about.
This back design also features light weight breathable mesh to ensure a light feel on body – this means the extra material won’t make you excessively hot.
Front Fastening Bra
The Front fastening hooks on this glamorise magic lift front closure bra are standard hook and eye clasps so you won’t get any surprises with having to learn a new clip system.
Most sizes will have 7 hook and eye clasps. I recommend doing these all up (don’t be tempted to skip one or two) to ensure that the load is spread evenly over these hooks and their lifespan is maximised.
I also recommend washing this bra with the hook and eye clasps all done up. This ensure they won’t hook on to other part of the bra in the wash bag and cause any damage in the washing machine.
How to wash the Glamorise Magic Lift Front Closure Bra
As do all brands, the Glamorise team recommend hand washing this bra. I 100% agree that this is always the best way to go.
How to hand wash:
- Prepare luke warm water with a mild detergent (Lingerie detergent is great, but not essential).
- Soak bra in prepared water + detergent.
- Gently shift the bra around in the water, if there are stains or marks rub this against another section of the bra.
- Rinse bra in fresh running water, ideally luke warm.
- Dab dry between two towels.
- Dry on a flat surface, do not hang from the shoulder strap.
If you can’t hand wash, then the next best way to go is do up all the hook and eye clasps, put the bra in a lingerie wash bag and wash on a short delicates cycle.
Does the Glamorise Magic Lift Front Closure Bra fit true to size?
I found that the cups in this do fit a bit on the big size so if you are between a F and a G cup then I would choose the F.
The band around the ribcage fits fairly true to size. Don’t be tempted to size up around the ribcage as this is where the support comes from and if it’s not snug around hear the bra will lose it’s functionality after wears and washing causes it to stretch.
If you are between a 36 and a 38 then I would suggest going with the 36. You want it to be a tad too firm when it’s new as it will stretch. And there is only one row of hooks to adjust in, not two like a traditional back closure bra.
What sizes does the Glamorise MagicLift Front Closure bra come in?
You can find this Glamorise front fastening bra in cup sizes B – K and band sizes 36 – 58. Note that these sizes are in American sizes. If you are used to shopping in other sizes you can use this bra sizing chart to assist you convert from UK bra sizes, European Bra sizes or Australian Bra sizes.

My final verdict on this wireless front fastening bra
All in all, I am a big fan of this style. The wire free bra gives a pretty crazy amount of lift given there is no underwire. That’s all thanks to the light padded cups that help to give the structure, support and shape.
Moving from underwire to wireless bras can be a big change. So please remember that the support will feel different. You’ll fall in one of two camps – you’ll either love it instantly because it is so different, or you may feel let down because it’s not what you’re used to. Even when women don’t like what they are used to they can find the change hard. Who knows which way it will go for you. But my best advice is to try it – give it a few wears before you judge any bra after making a dramatic move.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as me and my tester did 🙌🏽
