What to Look for in Comfy Wirefree Front Closing Bras (2024)

Are you tired of struggling to reach around and hook your bra in the back? I mean it's 2024 and we still have to hook our bras in the back? Front-closure bras have become more and more popular but let's talk about why front-closure wire-free bras are a great option.

Are underwire bras just too uncomfortable for you to wear all day? If so, then a front-closure bra with no underwire might be just what you need! These bras offer both comfort and convenience, making them a great choice for anyone looking for a more comfortable and easier-to-use bra.

Benefits of Front-Closure Bra with No Underwire

Underwire bras can dig into your skin and cause irritation, especially if you have a fuller bust. But with a front-closure bra with no underwire, you won't have to worry about this issue at all. Instead, you can enjoy a bra that fits snugly and comfortably, without any painful poking or prodding.

Options like this include the Liberare Bra from Liberare. This bra is wireless in sizes XXS-3XL but has molded cups for support. Instead of the traditional hook and eye which can me difficult to clasp, Liberare has patent pending designed snaps with magnets that guide it into place.  

Helping with Mobility Challenges

Another advantage of front closing bras with no underwire is the ease of use. Instead of having to contort your arms and body to reach around and hook your bra in the back, you can simply snap it closed in the front. This can be especially helpful for those with mobility issues, or for those who just want to save time getting dressed in the morning.

The beauty of our bras is that they were designed without hooks. Our. front-closure bras were designed with a magnetic closure so they simply snap into place. These bras have been seen in Vogue and Forbes for both its beauty and it's function.

Can No Underwire Really Offer Support?

But don't think that just because a front closing bra has no underwire, it won't provide the support you need. Many front closing bras are designed with supportive cups and bands to lift and shape your bust, so you can feel confident and comfortable all day long.

Molded cups offer a great option for lift without underwire and without the discomfort of a harsh push up bra.

Snaps vs Hook and Eye

Another option for a comfortable and convenient bra is one that snaps in the front. These bras are similar to front closing bras in that they are easy to put on and take off, but they often have a slightly different design. Rather than snapping closed like a traditional bra, front snapping bras typically have a clasp or hook that you can easily fasten in the front.

You can typically look for Velcro, Snaps or like Liberare: magnetic snaps.

  • Velcro: Velcro is a great option and will provide for the cheapest bra. But if sewn wrong it can be scratchy.

  • Hook and Eyes: Hook and eyes are another option. Be sure to look for bigger snaps if you have mobility challenges as smaller hooks are very difficult to do. Metal hooks can be a bit uncomfortable but big flat plastic hooks are a great options.

  • Non- Magnetic Snaps: Non-magnetic snaps are helpful for front opening bras but do require that you press them in. 

  • Magnetic Snaps: While you may think magnets wont hold by DD+ chest, snaps with interlocking puzzle systems that simply have magnets inside of them to guide will. The magnets will guide it shut but the snaps will keep it safe and secure all day. Look for light-weight magnets encased in plastic and in fabric so it's ultra comfy.
