Stud fasteners are also known as snaps, poppers and press-studs. They comprise a pair of plastic or metal interlocking discs. One has a round nipple-like protrusion and the other a round receptacle. When pressed together with force, they interlock and hold fast. They are generally used as fasteners for clothing, but they are found on other items as well such as wallets. Stud front fastening is when they are used to fasten the front of a garment, such as a shirt, tunic or jacket.
Stud front fastenings are everywhere from the warehouse to the lab to the strip club. If you’re wondering why, it’s simply because they provide an easy and secure way to hold garments together. Because of the design, patented by German inventor Heribert Bauer in 1885, they are super easy to fasten and unfasten even if you’re wearing thick gloves – far easier than buttons or zips. And in the case of the strip club, they also provide a quick and easy way to get clothing off!
Stylistically, typical stud fasteners have a unique look. The outer disc has a distinct silver circle that, when arranged vertically down the front of a shirt, adds an ‘edge’ to a garment that buttons just don’t have. When used in more creative ways, such as down the front of a form-fitting shirt dress, they create an ‘easy to open’ temptation that’s hard to resist. And on a shirt or dress, it’s up to you how many you’d like to leave open, showing as little or as much as you dare.
Garments with stud front fastenings are stylish, easy to open and close and very versatile. For a sexy, ‘come and get it’ look, you can’t go wrong with a stud front fastening, and that goes for both men and women. Men, take a look at the Tom Black Short Sleeved Shirt. And women, for two dress options, try the Laurine Short Black High Neck Dress or the Noemi Short Tight Black Shirt-Dress. As you can see, all of these styles make stud front fastening a very sexy option!
