Back closure bras are conventional bras most women go for because of they are familiar, but many women are unaware of the benefits of front closure bras. This article will highlight the benefits of front closure bras and why these bras are worth giving a try.

Easy to put on and take off

Putting on a back-closure bra can be a struggle in the morning when you are running late for work, or when you get home and just want to quickly remove your bra. Front closure bras have proved to be a convenient alternative thanks to the easy-to-put-on and take off feature, you do not have to reach behind your back for this bra. This feature is best for women who have mobility issues or can’t co-ordinate hooks behind their back. Front closure bras really are beneficial for women who look for comfort and ease.


Benefits of Front Closure Bras Vs Back Closure Bra

Front Closure Bras often have extra aback support built in in their designs meaning that the weight of the breasts can be transferred on to the back. This makes for a really comfortable way to carry out daily activities.

Back closure bras, although making a generalisation, tend to rely on a narrower amount of material across the back that if fitted properly will make you feel restricted or confined as the bra digs in to your back.

This is why front closure bras are considered the most comfortable bras by those that wear them.

Smoother back and reduced “bumps” under clothes

The eye and hook hardware on the back of a back-closure bra can form visible bumps, especially when you are wearing it with a fitted shirt. This hook and eye clasp can also dig into your skin or subcutaneous fat (which we all have) causing what lots of women call “back fat”. The benefits of front closure bras is that they are less likely to form unsightly bumps on your back as the hook and eye clasp is between the breasts. Moreover, you can comfortably lean against a chair without the hook and clasp digging in your skin. Thus, you can wear front closure bras around the clock, without feeling confined.

Maximum Support

Because of the unique design of Front Closure Bras you will see that their shoulder straps are often largely inelastic. This really helps to provide optimal stability for day to day activities, but also serves as a great back up support system if the rest of the bra begins to stretch out and no longer fit you.

A great Front Closure Bra will work to lift, separate and give a gently nudge of posture correction which are three very important elements that will leave you feeling supported.

Sleep Benefits of Front Closure Bras


Women with larger breasts usually sleep with bras but end up with a sore back as the hook and eye hardware may dig in the back and they may experience discomfort and sagging. Front closure bras, because of their front clasps give a smoother back and you can lie on the bed comfortably, making them the ideal sleep bras – assuming you’re choosing the right “sleep” style of course.

A Variety of Styles

Back-closure bras offer a wide range of options, as they are more conventional and as such have more in production. But front closure bras happen to look even more alluring (in my opinion) and you can choose from a variety of colors, shapes, materials, patterns, prints, and styles to meet your wardrobe needs. With the huge demand in front closure bras we’re definitely seeing more and more brands increase their range in front closure options. A collection of lacy bras is also available to choose from so that you can rock comfort and beauty in one look – you just need to know where to find them. Underwire and no-underwire options are also available in front closure bras, and due to the easy access, they provide front closure bras that are super convenient for women who may still need to do the odd breastfeed during the day, but aren’t keen on still wearing maternity bras.

With the right quality and size, both, back closure and front closure bras are a must have for a woman’s wardrobe. However, the benefits of the front closure bras are primarily enjoyed by women who prioritize comfort, and are on the lookout for something that they can put on with ease to wear around the clock.
