The Most Comfortable Bras by Carole Martin® Review and $20 GC from Giant Tiger ~ Canada 12/15

Carole Martin Full Freedom Bras

Have you heard of Carole Martin® Full Freedom Bras? They have been on the market since the 1970’s and offer comfortable and supportive bras with no underwire. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical to review the Full Freedom Cotton Bra and the Original Full Freedom Comfort Bra that I even went to Giant Tiger to try them on before I accepted to write this article. I had seen them in the store before, but never gave them a second look. Why, I don’t know, because I was extremely surprised by how they hug my shape so comfortably.

Carole Martin Original Full Freedom Comfort Bra

Original Full Freedom Comfort Bra

The Original Carole Martin® Comfort Bra is one of the most comfortable bras that I have ever tried on. You can feel the soft and satiny fabric on your skin. It’s a a great bra to wear at work, shopping, relaxing at home, or to that special dinner party. It’s available in beige, white, or black with a stretch cup that fits B, C, D, or DD size.

  • Easy on front hook and look closure
  • Quilted fabric that’s warm in winter/cool in summer
  • No underwire or stiff elastics to irritate your skin
  • 85% Nylon and 15%Spandex
  • Wide sides fit comfortably snug
  • Machine washable and hang to dry

Caroel Martin Full Freedom Cotton Bra

Full Freedom Cotton Bra 

The Full Freedom Cotton Bra is made with a breathable cotton stretch fabric. It was perfect to wear to work, at home, or while I was exercising and working out.  The fit is slightly different then the Full Freedom Comfort Bra, since it has a broader elastic support and less stretch fabric that gives a little more support like a sports bra. It’s available in white or black with a stretch cup that fits B, C or D size.

  • Easy front hook closure
  • No underwire or stiff elastics to irritate your skin
  • 95% Cotton / 5% Spandex
  • Extra wide straps and open back reduces back strain
  • Machine washable and hang to dry

What I like the best about the bras:

  • Their convenient front closure, so no more need to spin the bras to put them on;
  • I was worried about ongoing fit because of the non-adjustable straps, but the straps did not slide and stayed on even when I was working out;
  • I just have to choose my normal bra band size like B cup and the stretch fabric will hug my shape;
  • The soft stretch comfortable material;
  • The price at $9.00!

    I always feel like I need an underwire for support but then the wires end up poking out of the side and the bra is ruined. I will have to pick up one of these to try out. You can’t beat the price!

  40. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    I`ve not heard of Carole Martin Comfort Bras before but must admit that they do look comfortable. I`ll have to look into this.

  41. Julie says:

    I’ve been a fan of the original bra, not the cotton. I don’t know what the company did that sells and the distributor / seamstress, but the new ones are NOT the original as claimed. I have both and at first sight they would appear alike they are not. One full figure silky fabric has about an extra inch of fabric on both sides cut wrong, it’s not comfortable. Very disappointing. If you can get your hands on the truly original one, good luck- it is 85% nylon, 15% spandex. Even though the newer make has the same, the marking is wrong. On the one that fits me has the size written in yellow ink, the newer one is too stiff and the doesn’t hang from the shoulder properly.

  42. Marvis says:

    I have tried the Carole Martin Full Freedom Comfort Bra and I love it. I have lost a bit of mobility on my left arm and this front closure is so easy to use.It is comfortable without those nasty wires and support is great. I would recommend it to anyone out there . And the price is definitely wonderful . Thank you for making my life a bit easier 🙂

  43. MAry A. says:

    I have heard about them seen advertised many years now, am buying one for my mother and one for myself…

  44. Alice says:

    I wear a Carole Martin Comfort bra and have discarded all of the others that I THOUGHT were comfy. Wrong! I bought two, thank goodness, at Walmart in Langford, BC, but they have never had them since and although Amazon has them for sale, they are only available via for the USA, and they will not deliver to Canada. does not have Carole Martin Comfort Bras, so I am out of luck. Ideas?
