What is your preference? I typically buy / get-bras-from-the-wife as rear closure, but recently my wife bought a new front closing bra she hates, so immediately it became mine. I forgot how much I like these (haven't worn one forever).
You don't have to fiddle in the back blind, or do the "close in front wearing it backwards, then fight to swivel it around, then try squeezing your arms through the loop-holes". I also kind of like the idea that the release is in front (where the boobs are), as if they were barn doors begging to be swung open.
Honestly, if the clasp were to break, that bra would pop right off.
