Fresh Comfort Inc: Bra for Seniors & Women with Disabilities

Fresh Comfort Inc's Easy Open Bra

Did you know that one half of working Americans report having back pain symptoms each year? In fact, 31 million Americans report experiencing lower-back pain at any given time.  In high school, I had moderate scoliosis.  Then, at 24, I got Myasthenia Gravis, and I have been carrying a cane for the past five years.  Sometimes, when you’re lounging around the house, you don’t need to where a bra.  But, unfortunately, there are settings when it’s not appropriate like work and PTA meetings.  I often wish I were a Charlie’s Angel so I could be free of this burden.  Thankfully, there is a company, Fresh Comfort Inc., that makes adaptive intimate apparel.  I’m going to review their Easy Open Bra ($40.00).

Features:

-three colors: white, beige, light blue

-five sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL

-easy to use front closure Velcro® with Austrian snap and “D” ring

-soft Modal blend fabric: 46% combined cotton, 49% Modal, and 5% Spandex

-smooth, wide straps

-tag-less, hidden label

-removable pads

Benefits:

-comfortable: there are no straps digging in my shoulders and the wide straps are nice

-no underwire

-light: the bra has a light feeling

-not itchy: I often find a lot of bras that look fancy but are itchy to wear

-looks great with scoop-neck and v-neck blouses

-great for everyday wear

-good value: there are bras in the department store that are equally expensive but I find that as I get bigger and experience weight changes, I eventually can’t use them

My Final Verdict

This is the most comfortable bra in my closet.  Yes, I would recommend it to women–both with and without disabilities.

Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), polycystic ovarian syndrome, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!

    I totally approve of good bras… but I veer away from American bras… I get european ones, which are crafted much better, I think.

    (I am not typing in all caps, it is making me do this for some reason…)

      LOL: Don’t worry. It’s not in call caps. Thanks for sharing your advice; finding a good bra is one of the hardest things in life.
