Royce Front Closure Bras


Royce Bras are some of the most popular bras on the market, and for good reason. They are well-made, comfortable, and stylish.

Plus, the front closure provides excellent support and helps to minimize back pain. Whether you're looking for an everyday bra or a special occasion bra, Royce is sure to have a style that's right for you.

Choosing a Front Fastening Bra


If you’re a lady of a certain age and are struggling to secure your bra behind your back, then you may be wondering if there are options for front closure (or front fastening) bras that would suit you better.


The great news is that there are plenty of options to choose from as front fastening bras can benefit older people who:


  • Might not have the flexibility to reach behind their backs
  • Are suffering from arthritis (also known as an arthritis bra)
  • Want to smooth out their back silhouette 
  • Have recently had surgery 
  • Need an easier way to put on a bra without the usual bending and twisting involved


As we age, fiddly things like doing up bras can become more difficult as our mobility starts to decline. Our upper body dexterity isn't what it once was!


A front fastening bra is designed to make doing up a bra as easy as possible without unnecessary stretching, twisting or discomfort that can sometimes be experienced with a traditional back fastening bra.


By having the hook and eye, popper or velcro closures at the front of the bra on your chest between your breasts instead of behind you, it’s simply a case of looking down and pulling the bra together and fastening.


Closing a front fastening bra can be made even easier again by using a mirror as you secure the band.


Whether it’s due to surgery, not being as flexible as you once were, or you’re just looking for an easier way to keep your breasts in place without that tricky fiddly process behind your back, then front fastening bras are a brilliant option for elderly ladies to consider.

How Do They Work?

If you're wondering how front closure bras work, it's pretty straightforward. Depending on the design, these bras usually feature either a standard hook-and-eye closure, basic poppers, or a single plastic or metal clasp at the front. Some even offer velcro fastenings, which are especially handy if you've recently had surgery or struggle with hand dexterity, perhaps due to conditions like arthritis.

Putting on a front closure bra is a breeze. Just slide your arms through the straps, position the bra where it's comfortable, and then fasten it in the middle of your chest. Easy as that!

But don't forget the fit check. Just like with any other bra, lean forward to make sure everything's sitting where it should in the cups. Also, double-check that the band is lying flat against your skin to avoid any unwanted rubbing or discomfort.

Lastly, don't overlook the straps. Make sure they're adjusted so they don’t either slide off your shoulders or dig in, ensuring you're comfortable throughout the day.

The Benefits of Front Fastening Bras

There are plenty of benefits to switching over to front fastening bras as we age, and here are just a few of our favourites. 

No more wiggling! 

If you’ve ever closed your bra in front of you and then spun it around before shimmying it into place, then why not cut that process down?


Front fastening bras mean that when you hook the bra over your shoulders, it’s already in the right position and ready for you to fasten at the front. This removes the need to twist, pull and wiggle it around to the correct position like you would with a bra with a regular back fastening.

Smooth out back rolls 

It’s no secret that as we age our ability to build muscle reduces. Whilst this isn’t an issue for most people, it can lead to an increase in backfat for some, particularly as our mobility declines and we do less physical activity than we used to. 


If you're suffering from a soft back and get overspill or bumps around your band line when you wear bras, then a front closure bra can help to smooth out your back and create a streamlined silhouette in whatever outfit you’re wearing.


The smooth, wide back that wireless front closure bras come with is brilliant at eliminating any rolls and dents that a traditional back-closing bra can create. If the problem of overspill is particularly bad for you in a standard bra, then you may also be wearing the wrong bra size and may benefit from a fitting.

They're Much Less Fiddly 

There’s not a lady out there who hasn’t uttered a few choice words when doing up a bra at some point in their lives.


We all know that bra fastenings can be tricky at the best of times, but as we age, we can lose dexterity in our hands and fingers which makes fastening a bra behind your back even more fiddly than it used to be.


Combine this with conditions like arthritis which commonly affect the elderly too, then a front fastening bra is a great option to consider as it simplifies the whole process of putting on your bra and can prevent unnecessary back, shoulder or arm pain if you already struggle with mobility or pain in these areas.

...and Great for all kinds of outfits. 

Most front closure bras tend to have low necklines. This means you can still wear all of your favourite tops and dresses when wearing one, and won’t have to worry about your bra being on show even if you have a lower-cut top on.


If you still enjoy putting outfits together and want to feel confident in your bra then there are plenty of styles and materials to choose from.


From lace, racerbacks, posture support, sporty styles, t-shirt bras and much more, bra shopping doesn’t have to be any less fun as you age. Front closure bras (or front fastening bras as they are also known) can be worn with all kinds of outfits.

Your Bust Size

Larger Breasts

One of the most common complaints among women with larger breasts is that traditional bras are uncomfortable and often provide inadequate support.


Front-fastening bras offer a solution to this problem, as they provide greater control and allow for a more customized fit.


Additionally, front-fastening bras often have wider straps that distribute weight more evenly, making them more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.


They can be adjusted more precisely, front-fastening bras are less likely to cause the uncomfortable digging and chafing that is all too common with ill-fitting bras. For women with larger breasts, a front-fastening bra may be the key to finding lasting comfort and support.


Smaller Breasts

You don't have to be a certain size to wear front-fastening lingerie. In fact, front-clasping bras can be a great option for women with smaller breasts. They offer a number of advantages, including an increased sense of support and jiggle control.


They can also be easier to put on and take off than traditional back-clasping styles. They don't rely on straps for support, front-clasping bras can be worn with a variety of different necklines. So if you're looking for a lingerie option that's both comfortable and stylish, consider a front-clasping bra.
