Product news: FALKE have introduced a range of sports bras that are designed to offer a supportive fit across a wide variety of sizes

Staying fit and participating in a sport can be hard on your breasts. In fact, according to an article on the subject from the German Runner’s World, the breasts can move up and down up to 84 times per kilometre run. When you consider that the breasts are composed of a mixture of fat, skin and connective tissues, which can slacken over time when unsupported it makes sense to wear a sports bra.

Whilst your average bra is capable of reducing movement by up to 38% a good sports bra reduces movement by no less than 75%.

With this in mind FALKE have introduced a range of sports bras that are designed to offer a supportive fit across a wide variety of sizes, with no irritating seams and soft materials that provide excellent moisture management. The range also uses a simplified sizing system, which is designed to make it easy to select the right size, first time, even without purchase advice. This is particularly pertinent given that research indicates that 60% of all women purchase the wrong cup size and 35% of women select bras that are too small. Sizing ranges from an XS through to an XL.


FALKE Versatility Bra

“Versatility” Bra Top (RRP: £55)

Construction: 84% Polyamide | 16% Elastane

A double layered bra offering maximum support and full breast coverage. Stabilisation straps in combination with a material composition that contains a high degree of elastane which offers additional support credentials. Meanwhile the Power Back further improves stability and the front closure system with lockable zip ensures the “Versatility” bra top is easy and comfortable to take on and off.

Support: Maximum


FALKE Conrol Bra

“Control” Bra Top (RRP: £50)

Construction: 84% Polyamide | 16% Elastane

Another double layered bra with full breast coverage, stabilisation straps and a racer back construction to ensure freedom of movement. The “Control” bra top differs on two counts. Firstly it features an adjustable band width making it even easier to achieve a supportive fit across a wider range of cup sizes thanks to the versatile sizing. Secondly the seamless knitting technology used ensures that there are no seams to cause friction or irritation during high-impact activities.

Support: Maximum

The “Versatility”, style is available from Autumn/Winter 2014, whilst the new “Control” style will be available from Spring/Summer 2015.
