The Bad

  • Basic design, not flattering
THE VERDICT
The Falke Madison sports bra received the most mixed reviews from our A/B cup testers. The bra was loved by some and considered just okay by others. The cut and coverage is modest though the support is minimal. Testers agreed that the material was stretchy and was good for movement in medium impact sports and was an all-around comfortable sports bra.
FULL REVIEW

Comfort

The tight fit and elastic material of the Falke Madison sports bra is form fitting and reasonably comfortable. It’s good fit is a direct attribute to its comfort. The seamless construction is soft on the skin and does not chafe.  It was not a unanimous favorite bra in the test by all, but some testers said it was one of their top three in the comfort category.

Fit / Mobility

One of the key features of the Falke Madison sports bra is its elasticity. The stretchy material excels during high impact sports with plenty of movement. The bra stays in place and moves well. With the elasticity of the material it has a tight fit and holds great form.

Support

The Falke Madison sports bra is designed for smaller cup sizes and is one of the least compressive sports bras in the test group. Testers agree that it is intentionally light on the support, but is still okay running and medium impact sports and is “fine for small chests.” The elasticity of the material though not super supportive held in place and made the bra exceptionally comfortable. Most testers said that this bra is best for A/B cups during light exercise, though others reported that it performed well in high intensity running workouts.

Breathability

Testers agreed that the material of the Falke Madison sports bra “absorbed sweat nicely” and that its lightweight construction was highly breathable. In hot or humid weather or high intensity sweaty workouts the dual-layer construction was key, making it one of the fastest drying sports bras once it did get wet.

Style / Design

The seamless construction is one of the bras best design features. Testers did not report any chaffing. Testers reported liking the variety of solid color options. One tester said she “liked the color, but the style was not flattering” while another tester reported that the “maximum coverage was her favorite design” of all the sports bras in the test group.
