Wireless Front Closure Bras
For wire free support seekers I’ve penned some of my favourite, and personally tried and tested front closure wireless bras. You don’t have to sacrifice support without underwire.
Tips to choosing a front closure wireless bra...
Benefits of a front closure wireless bra
Going wire free or “wireless” is a choice generally made around comfort. If an underwire bra isn’t fitted well (or sometimes even if it is) it will most certainly be uncomfortable with underwires positioned in places they shouldn’t be. For this reason we see so many women “give up” on underwire to avoid the unnecessary discomfort in their daily living.
So generally speaking the biggest benefit of a a wireless front closure bra is both the comfort and the ease of use. But do remember that wireless bras must be fitted well so they can offer their best support which will ultimately avoid bust, neck and shoulder pain too.
💡 Wireless front closure bras can also be great as sleep bras > Read our blog on the best front closure sleep bras.
Do wirefree bras make your breasts sag?
The short answer here is no, a wireless bra will not make your breasts sag.
The long answer is that underwire is actually in a bra for shape, not support. It is not their to lift your breast, or stop your breast from bouncing, but rather to create a “natural” round shape. As you’ll know from experience as soon as you take an underwire bra off your breasts revert to their actual shape and position.
The real cause of our breasts sagging is due to the weak natural support structures in the breast, that being the coopers ligaments and the overlying skin, that once damaged cannot be repaired. So as we age our skin loses its elasticity and this will result in our breasts changing position or “sagging”. There are lots of other factors that cause our breasts to sag, not just ageing, which include smoking, drinking, sun exposure, genetics, hormonal changes, weight gain, pregnancy, lactation and weight loss.

Why are most front closure bras wireless?
Front Closure bras are often designed with comfort and mobility issues in mind. For a long time the lady out looking for a front opening or front clasp bra has given up on traditional bras. This is why most front closure bras are wire free – the demographic they have long been designed for are out there looking for wireless comfort.
In saying that we are seeking more and more underwire front closure bras hit the market.
Due to the fact that front closure bras do often have less adjustability I think that wireless bras will likely dominate this sub industry as wireless bras will be met with fewer fitting issues requiring as much adjustment in the bra as possible.
