Why are they amazing?

One of the best things about front fastening bras is the ease of application that they offer wearers. Rather than having to reach back and stretch your arms trying to secure your bra, the front fastening feature lets you complete the process from the comfort of your chest area. This makes them amazing for anyone suffering from physical disabilities, shoulder problems and painful conditions such as arthritis.

They are also loved by post-surgery patients who find the front fastening option much easier than regular back clips. The Anita Front Fastening Sports Bra 5523 is a wonderful front fastening bra which is ideal for initial post mastectomy prosthesis fitting. Made from amazingly super soft microfibre fabric, the bra features soft arm bands, padded shoulder straps, flat buttons and a front Velcro fastening for the ultimate in post-op comfort.
