Victoria’s Secret Sport Bras Review : Best Sport’s Bra #VSSportBra

Disclaimer: ¬†I am not compensated on this post. ¬†This is a sponsored blog post.¬†I have received Victoria’s Secret Sport collection for free or complimentary to try and review as part of Influenster’s program and as a part of the contest.¬†In writing this post, i earned a contest entry on winning an awesome prize for being a¬†#VSSportTester. ¬†My opinion may differ from others. ¬†All pictures are mine unless specified otherwise. ¬†No part of this post may be taken or copied without a written advised from me.

Victoria’s Secret did it again. ¬†With their VSX Sexy Sport collection, it’s a dream collection for every fitness enthusiast and yes each of their sports bras, performance pants and workout shorts are definitely worth having.

If you love dainty and sweet things, just imagine yourself receiving this pretty pink box. ¬†The surprise and excitement is definitely worthwhile especially if you are an avid fan of Victoria’s Secret. ¬†Now, this is no secret anymore.

VS

The box includes a pretty pink sports bra and a performance pants that I can use during my fitness routine but since I’m not yet that confident to try and take a picture of myself wearing the bra, i let my niece try it on which makes me realize even more that I really needed to do double time to lose weight and be on my healthy shape again.

I love the sexy back style of this sports bra and it fits comfortably on your back giving you more support than the usual sports bra that I have seen and have in the past. ¬†Victoria’s Secret claim that their sports bra is the world’s best sports bra, so I have to understand their claim and see for myself it’s real worth.

The sports bra is light and breathable. ¬†The name speaks for itself. ¬†The New, Incredible by Victoria’s Secret ¬†Sport Bra gives a maximum support and perfect for running, boxing and even high performance sports activities. Although, i think that it’s great to use during yoga too.

It’s Body wick keeps you cool and dry even after a rigid sports training and the racer back design can give additional sexiness. I always find pink as very dainty and feminine, so I guess #Influester ¬†really knows what i want. If you have a small front like me, this could be beneficial to you since it has additional padding to make you look more sexier but for some who was already blessed finds it as one of the disadvantages.

On the other hand, the Knockout Capri¬†¬†is a total knockout for me. ¬†I love it’s texture and yes, it since it’s stretch, it actually creates a second-skin fit for the sexiest butt ever that you would wanted.¬†The VS Knockout capri is the perfect length for spinning and Pilates which makes me think that I have to bring out my pilates materials again. ¬†My only thoughts on this is since it’s stretch your front can be highlighted.

So, would I recommend them?  Definitely yes.  This sports apparel is something worth checking out. Although, it can be a little bit pricey on the side but if your looking for high performance fitness apparel,  this is definitely the time to check it out.

Although it was a sad thought, I think this is a start of a new beginning for me. ¬†I’m getting over my old sports bra and taking my new VS Sports to the new heights. It’s time for me to say that i’m having a¬†#SportBraBreakup ¬†and no, i’m not crying over the idea of this break -up instead I’m all overly happy of learning another new product from my favorite brand and you know who.

So, when someone would ask me, “RIA, what’s your secret? ¬†It’s no longer a secret since it’s already out on the open. ¬†Victoria’s Secret is indeed the one for me.

Want to get free apparel and products.  Join #Influenster today and enjoy lots of freebies and perks. #VSSportTester
