Style, Support, and Independence: The Ultimate Limited Mobility Bra
A limited mobility bra can be a complete game-changer for those experiencing daily limitations in mobility, dexterity, or grip strength.
For many in this scenario, the quest for the ideal bra is a journey filled with frustration, discomfort, and very unsexy adaptive clothing. The great news is that there is now a limited mobility bra that ticks all of the boxes.
Understanding Limited Mobility
There are many reasons why people need limited mobility bras. Aging, injuries, surgeries and long-term medical conditions can all be a source of frustration when it comes to shopping for traditional back-fastening bras.
Luckily, adaptive bras are designed for comfort, ease of use, and restoring some really important independence.
The Impact of a Limited Mobility Bra
A limited mobility bra is specifically designed to address the unique needs of those with restricted movement, but what should you be looking for?
A Front Fastening Design
A front-fastening design is key for lots of people with mobility and dexterity concerns or general pain when trying to fasten a traditional hook and eye bra.
The most common fasteners for these bras will typically be Velcro, magnets or zips, although Velcro is typically a friendlier option for a wider range of mobility limitations and won’t interfere with things like pacemakers as a magnetic fasten might.
The main goal of a front closing bra is to reduce strain on shoulders and joints to make the whole process more simple.
Adjustable Shoulder Straps
Shoulder straps that tighten in the back are always difficult to reach and move, which is why front-adjusting options can be really valuable for those shopping for limited mobility bras. Adjustment helps to ensure a proper and comfortable fit.
Soft and Supportive
A high-quality limited mobility bra should still provide the necessary support and be comfortable. You shouldn’t have to choose between how a bra looks and how it feels.
Finding the Perfect Limited Mobility Bra
When you’re on the lookout for a limited mobility bra, it can be really difficult to know what the best options are.
The Springrose Adaptive Bra, our favorite option for limited mobility, combines all of the key elements that make the everyday task of putting on (and taking off) a bra simple.
Here’s what a bra that was co-designed by over 500 women with limited mobility looks like.
Soft Velcro Closing With Optional O-Ring
We’ve spent time perfecting the closing experience to ensure it’s as accessible as possible.
Not only does our front closing bra have an innovative, soft Velcro to ensure support and comfort, but it also comes with optional O-rings for anyone experiencing limited dexterity.
The O-rings can be attached to the ends of the velcro front straps to make it possible to step into or pull on the bra, without struggling. It requires no pinching or gripping, making independence possible.
The innovative patent-pending closure design even makes it possible to put on the bra with one hand.
Adjustable Shoulder Straps
We’ve made sure that the Springrose Adaptive Bra doesn’t rely on straining or overusing the shoulders or joints for back adjustment – this includes the shoulder straps. You can put on the bra and then adjust the shoulder straps in the front, so you can create the fit that suits you.
We wanted to be conscious of skin sensitivity when it came to designing the perfect bra for limited mobility. We hid as many seams as we could and used soft and supportive materials to ensure comfort and convenience. Plus, our metal pieces are nickel-free for safety with allergies.
Even though the Springrose bra doesn’t have underwire, it’s still more supportive than a bralette. This is made possible by the materials used, since the fabric is generally used for shapewear, not lingerie.
One of our biggest problems with accessible clothing is that it often completely ignores style. We wanted to create a bra that not only feels great but looks great too.At the moment the plunge adaptive bra is available in both black and terracotta. Limited mobility doesn’t mean you should sacrifice the confidence you feel when you know you look great.
