Bra Angel

This will help you keep abreast of getting dressed

Bra Angel

The Bra Angel dressing aid was designed by occupational therapists to help women who can only use one hand and who need to put on a bra without assistance.

The Bra Angel is ‘really useful’ and easy to use, it has two arms that are placed around the neck like a collar. The strap gripper is positioned below the breasts and the pink pad is gripped firmly by the chin and holds the Bra Angel in position between the breasts. It can easily be adjusted for different body sizes by pushing or pulling the extendable centre section.

The bra is placed upside down, inside out and back-to-front around the body. The hook end of the bra is then fed into the gripper allowing the user to let go of it and reach for the eye end before joining the two ends together. The bra can then be removed from the gripper and moved around the body and into position. The Bra Angel can then be released and removed and dressing completed.
