Victoria’s Secret Sport- #VSSportBra and Knockout Crop Pants Review

VSSportThis is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria’s Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.

You know the saying, “You get what you pay for”? Over the years I have learned that it’s not always true.  Yes, sometimes cheaper items do have lower quality, but oftentimes I’ve found that just because I paid more for the item doesn’t mean it’s going to be good quality.  However, Victoria’s Secret has shown me that paying a little extra for their products is totally worth it, because they do last longer. 

I bought my first Victoria’s Secret bra when I was 16 (rest assured it was just a normal bra, nothing provocative, and yes, I feel the need to clarify), and that bra lasted me over 10 years. In fact, it probably would have lasted longer but by then I was ready for something new. Over the years I tried different brands- less expensive brands- and continued to be disappointed time after time; they just didn’t hold up!  So I finally quit buying anything other than Victoria’s Secret, and I haven’t regretted it for even one second. My current bras from there are 7 years old and still look good as new!

So, when I learned that Victoria’s Secret makes sports bras and other workout apparel, I was stoked. Even more so to learn I’d get some free to review through Influenster!  I received the Incredible by Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra (VSX Sport) and a pair of the amazing VSX Sport Knockout Crop. I LOVE THEM!!

I’ve been athletic my entire life- playing sports year-round throughout middle school and high school, coaching after I graduated and continuing to work out and play recreationally since- so I’ve also tried my fair share of sports bras.  I am in love with this sport bra.  It is comfortable, it breathes, and it still makes me feel feminine- something most other sports bras do not.

VSSport Bra Underwire BandThis is the first sport bra I’ve ever owned that has concealed underwire for support, something I need (especially after 4 kids). You’d think that underwire would make it painful, but it’s cushioned to prevent that- it is so comfortable!! It offers amazing support without making me feel like I’m suffocating from being ‘held in’ so tightly, and I actually feel like a woman in it because it doesn’t smash down the girls.

back closureThe sport bra is made with Body-Wick fabric which keeps me cool and dry even when I’m sweating profusely (which tends to happen if you work out outside here in the Valley of the Sun). It has padded straps with no seams to cause irritation, and it has an adjustable back-closure that is also padded. Even the elastic band is super-soft! 

Needless to say, my old, ugly, manly, squishy, smooshy sport bra is loooooong gone and won’t be coming back, ever!

Next, the Knockout Crop Sport Pant- Another Victoria’s Secret product I’m in love with.

VS Sport Knockout PantsThe ones I received are medium rise (perfect to hide my love handles, haha) with second skin fit. The second skin fit makes them super tight, but the Nylon performance fabric with four-way stretch makes them move with ease. These also have Body-Wick fabric so, again, you stay cool and dry no matter how hard your workout.

Hidden waistI also love the hidden drawstring waist and hidden waistband pocket, which is deep enough and cushioned enough to allow my car key to be in there when I’m working out away from home or the gym.  And the color- black marl- is gorgeous. Not too bold but not plain and boring either.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you know I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mama.  I’d be perfectly content to stay in my pajamas all day (and some days I do), but I know it’s important to set a better example than that most days. 😉  Ever since receiving the Victoria’s Secret sport bra and crop pants I’ve found I am happy to get up and get dressed in the morning. I grab them and throw them on and feel ready to tackle my responsibilities at home and then make time to work out afterward (not every day, but many). I am absolutely going to be getting another one of each, however, because sometimes I forget to throw these ones in the wash at night so they’ll be ready in the morning- a huge bummer! I could seriously live in these. Seriously.

Check your local Victoria’s Secret store or Victoria’s Secret online to pick up your own VSSportBra and Knockout Pants. They’re available in many different colors and sizes and I promise you’ll find the perfect ones for you.  As for me, I think these are next on my wish list:
