The Comfortable Bra Style You'll Regret Overlooking

·5 min read

After coming home from a long day, there is nothing better than the relief of finally taking off your bra and letting yourself loose from the uncomfortable confines you've been subjected to for hours on end. (Sorry to sound so dramatic, but I think you know what I mean). However, struggling to wrap your hands around your back while peering over your shoulder into the mirror as you attempt to undo the snag in the clasp in the back is not ideal. Is a little support and functionality too much to ask for?

The solution to both these problems is simple: front-closure bras. Not only does this supremely comfortable style boast a clasp in the front that is perfectly situated for easy removal, but it also pulls your breasts forward and together, which provides the exact support and lift a lot of us look for in our favorite bras. As a result, this bra style is perfect for breasts of all sizes, and it's particularly great for people with bigger busts who may frequently run into the challenge of finding a bra that is both comfortable and stylish.
