|Yay! So exciting!|
I received this Victoria's Secret sports bra and socks to try free of charge. I was not compensated for my opinion but cool free stuff is still cool free stuff, and thus, I must declare it. So, yay for my free stuff. I also received a free cat-approved box, but I don't think I have to declare that. Opinions are my own.
Awhile back, I signed up at Influenster and then promptly forgot about it. A few weeks ago, I received an email survey from them and found out that I was eligible for the Victoria's Secret voxbox. Um, yes please!
I have a long history of wearing craptastic sports bras. I used to actually wear a regular bra and then a sports bra over it because I couldn't find sports bra that was supportive enough to keep the girls from bouncing all over the place.
During the Disneyland Half Marathon last summer, I had to buy a sports bra at the expo because I completely forgot to pack any. I lucked out and managed to find an amazing one, but I have yet to find another.
So I was pretty excited to get this pink package in the mail!
|The socks were a cool surprise.|
I would have had a hard time writing a glowing review of this product if I didn't like it, so thank God this is a really excellent bra. I wore it running over the weekend and it was great. I won't horrify you by posting a picture of me wearing just the bra because no one should be subjected to that.
|Even the picture looks like it is sweating. Welcome to the desert.|
This particular model is the Incredible and I genuinely like it. The true test was wearing it to ride my horse. I will definitely be purchasing another one because good sports bras are really hard to find when you have *ahem* a larger chest. There's an underwire and I was a little concerned about that because I thought it might chafe out this one didn't. Huzzah.
I'm not a huge fan of the yellow color because, well, I just don't like yellow. I checked out the Victoria's Secret website and they have a bunch of cool colors and patterns.
The socks are really cute, soft and stretchy. I don't know if I would really recommend them for running. They felt a little slippery in my shoes, so maybe they would be better for yoga or something. (Do people wear socks to yoga? I don't even know...) They're on the thinner side and I typically run in a medium weight running sock. If you prefer thin weight socks, check them out. They come in a lot of cool colors. I have a thing for socks, especially crazy, brightly colored socks. I'll try them on another run to see if I get used to them.
Thank you, Victoria's Secret and Influenster for letting me try this bra. I love it.
