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).


-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

-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.

    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.

        Hi Sandy, I did a bit of research and the brand “Nancy Meyers” makes European bras. Right now, I’m wearing Third Love–what I like about Third Love is that it comes in half cup sizes. My mom is enjoying Fresh Comfort though; for context, she is 65 years old.
