These bras solved a real problem for me. Due to arthritis in my shoulders, I began having a great deal of difficulty hooking my bra behind my back. Since I'm over weight, most front-hook bras didn't provide enough coverage. I can't wear underwires, so I was getting discouraged about finding just the right bra. This bra eliminated all my negatives: full coverage, no wires, hooks where I can reach them, and, as a plus, they're pretty!
