Victoria's Secret Sport Bra & Leggings Influenster Review
Monday, October 6, 2014
I need to work out, guys. I know, I know. "It's good for you, Allie." "Don't you want to live to be at least 100 years old?" "Your metabolism is starting to slow down, ya know..." I get it. Exercise is healthy for one's body/soul/mind. I just have never been the type of person who likes to work out, especially by going to a gym or running (blech!). I just get bored... and sweaty. What's with the sweat? Anyway, I digress, per usual. Recently, I have truly been trying to force myself to go to my apartment's little gym to run on the elliptical for at least a teensy bit of cardio, in hopes I will get the gunk out of my veins and live past 40. I also have been joining Matt in his P90X Pilates and Yoga sessions, because those are two forms of exercise I actually do enjoy, shockingly. I think that's because I used to do gymnastics, so flexibility comes easier to me than endurance (hence my distaste for cardio).
Well, it is all in good timing, because I received the new Victoria's Secret Sport bra and leggings, and let me tell you: they are AWESOME. Seriously, I love them. This is going to be TMI, so I apologize in advance; however, I want to be open and honest in this review, so here it goes: I am a D-cup in the brasserie department. That kind of chest weight pretty much guarantees a little bit of pain when running/bouncing/jumping. Therefore, the search for a quality sports bra can be equally as painful. Most of them dig into my shoulders or get flimsy after one wash, but that all changed when I got the VSX sports bra. It is, by far, my favorite I've ever worn. Plus, the leggings are amazing, too! As soon as I got them, Matt & I did a round of that aforementioned P90X yoga, which usually makes my workout attire slip up, down, and sideways, but not with the VSX clothing - not even the slightest! The pants had fabulous stretch and stayed right where they should the entire time. I would seriously recommend this new line to anyone looking to upgrade their exercise garments. You won't regret it!

Will you be trying out the Victoria's Secret Sport line? I sincerely recommend it! As you can see, along with a yoga session, we also took a road trip up to Sedona for some hiking in the mountains with the pups. Once again, the bra & pants exceeded my expectations in comfort, quality, and all around wearability. Perfect for a weekend adventure!
