Saucony Women’s Impulse Bra Top ReviewMay 30, 2017
- Style & function-forward
- Four-way stretch & sweat-wicking material
- High compression creates full support for C/D cups
- Removable cups provided
- Tight to put on and take off
- Snug fit on skin can create chaffing during a long run
It’s not often that a bra can be used by C/D cups for low, moderate, and high-impact activities and have a stylish appeal. But the Saucony Impulse Bra Top is highly functional with fun design details. It fits tightly, so a wearer who doesn’t like a lot of compression may find the bra too constricting.
The Impulse Bra Top is very tight fitting which keeps C/D cups supported, but the bra can also press against the skin and create irritation for some wearers.
Once a wearer gets the bra in place it won’t move around much and it keeps a chest completely in place. The wide rib cage band holds in the upper torso for a wrapped feeling, and flat seams on the interior of the bra help to reduce chaffing.
This Impulse Bra fits tightly, and bra-to-body compression is key with it, so once a wearer gets it in place over her chest, it will hold C/D cups for running and high-impact activities.
Sweat-wicking and lightweight, the Impulse Bra Top kept the tester’s temperature balanced through a 10-mile run on the coast of California. The bra has a longer fit so it can be worn on its own or with a tank over the top.
The strappy back of the Impulse Bra Top makes it a statement on its own or with open back tanks. The bra has a mid-cut on the chest so it’s flattering but not too revealing.
