- Quick-dry & seamless fabric
- Adjustable under-bust band
- Comfortable compression
- Tight fit can hug intensely
The key elements of the Control Maximum Support Top from Falke are the comfort of the fit and the fabric. The highly-elastic, quick-drying fabric holds the chest securely while still inviting full-body movement. Testers found they could wear this bra on a run, and also while hanging out in comfortable clothes at home.
It’s the stretch that Falke put into the fabric of the Control Maximum Support Top that really makes it stand out. It’s easy to move in this bra, whether in a yoga class or running a half marathon. The bottom strap wraps around a 36-inch ribcage snugly and the pre-formed cups hold C and D sizes securely, all while still allowing freedom of movement that can range from slow to fast.
Pre-formed cups in this bra hold in the chest, while the adjustable under-bust strap makes it easy to make the fit more personal. We were able to run and jump with minimal chest movement, with a stretchy yet supportive racer-back design. The Falke’s Control Maximum Support Top uses the shoulders but doesn’t rely on them to hold weight — that’s what the wide bottom strap does so effectively.
The material of the Control Maximum Support Top is composed of 85% polyamide and 15% elastane — a light and stretchy combination that wicks sweat. Racer-back shoulder straps on the Flake bra give a little more breathing room for skin on the shoulders, along with a gap in the back between the shoulder straps and the under-bust strap that offers more airflow.
A simple and smart design makes the Control Maximum Support Top from Falke easy to put on and take off. The V-cut in the chest creates an attractive aesthetic, while a strip of fabric behind it provides for more support and coverage. The racerback shoulder straps go seamlessly under workout tanks and t-shirts.Continue Reading
These bras were tested for three months while running in both warm and cold weather conditions. Time spent wearing each bra and running ranged from short 20 minute interval sessions to more casual fun runs, to trail and road running races.
