Front-closure bras have many advantages. The first is that they're so much easier to put on and take off, especially for women with post-surgical needs, limited shoulder motion or arthritis. Multiple hooks-and-eyes are much easier to work with because you can actually see what you're doing. Posture-enhancing bras are most often very tall in back, and a back closure would interfere with their support and smoothing control. Front closures vary in construction, and can be hooks-and-eyes or plastic or metal drop-needle or interlocking styles. Cottonique bras of organic cotton have ties and plastic clasp closures. Racerback bras often have front closures. And last but not least, sexy bras are a natural for this category.
