Front fastening bras

my friend has really hurt her neck and while she recovers is struggling to get her bra on and off. Does such a thing exist as a front fastening bra.

They are really hard to get, apart from in granny styles tbh. Doing a bra twizzle round works ok, esp if it has nice stretchy straps

I found a nice one by Calvin Klein a while ago - get her to look on

I think the majority of front fastening bras veer towards either the OAP look or the porn star look grin

Can she not put it on backwards, fasten it up then spin it back round?

Or is your friend a posn star?

oi - porn star? oap? although actually the one I have is nude and racer back so maybe oap after all! grin

Thanks that's great. I think she is in so much pain it's agony to do anything.. I quite like that Calvin Klein one I might get it... I am getting on a bit

glad you asked this - where have they all gone? I used to wear them all the time 20 odd years ago - DH called them "front loaders" - but haven't seen any for ages!

M&S had a really nice black one in their t-shirt bra range. It's incredibly comfy and gives great support too. It's here

Actually I take it back, I really like the M&S one! I want one.

It looks really comfy, especially around the back, I like how wide an dglat it is, it wont dig in and create rolls grin

Also I wonder if fastening at the front helps to hoik the bosom some what?

nice, but can't afford £22 on a bra sad

Christ £22 for one bra! shock

Oh no ill have to give it a miss, I see myself splashing out £20 for a 2 pack from debenhams as a real treat blush
