My Mum who is in her mid 60s has Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis which she finds is giving her increased pain and discomfort. It is currently more painful in shoulder area.
She is now finding that putting bra’s on is such a struggle and is in turn making her feel down and upset- feeling like part of her independence is slipping away in this aspect.
Can anybody suggest anywhere where she could buy Bra’s that are easier to put on independently e.g pull ons, front clasps etc.
She has tried the pull ons which are ok but not great and because she is a larger bust, the front clasps can be quite expensive (as her daughters we are willing to pay)
Any help with the above is much appreciated! Thank you
Welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum.
Thank you for making the above post on behalf of you Mum.
I’m sure there will be other forum members who can offer advice based upon their own experiences.
In addition, the following link, to an article on our website, provides information about a lingerie supplier Versus Arthritis have been working with which I hope is useful to you:
Take a look at some maternity bras I know it sounds daft but they have front fastening bras and they are pretty comfortable and built really for larger bust
love Jona 😊1
Thank you both so much, both suggestions are really helpful and has made her smile this evening.
I have a bra that pulls on over my head. Take a look at www.molke.co.uk0
