Thank you Victoria's Secret for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Victoria's Secret all content and opinions expressed here are my own.
My whole life, I've been completely obsessed with comfort in every sense of the word. A big part of the reason I became a personal trainer is because I want to help others feel more comfortable in their own skin and lives. A huge part of being comfortable is what you put on your body. I'm incredibly picky about panties, pajamas, workout gear and anything else that I spend a lot of time in. If I'm wearing something that fits poorly or is uncomfortable, I'm completely thrown off - especially if it's workout gear and I'm mid-exercise. Having to pull up bottoms that won't stay put is probably my number one pet peeve. I guess everyone has their own issues finding certain items, and I'm no exception. My proportions have made it challenging to find things that fit!
I've been a Victoria's Secret customer and superfan for over half of my life, so the opportunity to work with them was beyond thrilling. In the past, I have always relied on them for underwear, sleepwear and swimwear... but I wasn't totally familiar with their sport line before being given the chance to try it, which made this even more exciting for me.
I was stoked to have the chance to try out the Incredible sport bra and the Knockout Tight sport bottom. Let's start with the bra. I've always been small-chested and broad-shouldered, which has made sports bra shopping kind of a nightmare. I'm a size XS in most tees and tanks, but I'm M in most sports bras because of my broad shoulders and back... anything smaller squeezes painfully against my ribcage.
Honestly, because I'm small, I had never considered trying out a sports bra like this one. I figured my boobs didn't require or deserve that level of support or detail. Well, as you can probably guess, I was wrong. I tried on this sports bra and I was pretty surprised. I have never felt held in like that before. I also love the closure front on this bad boy... Not having to twist and contort my body in weird ways to get into a sports bra is a plus in my book!
I have to tell you about these pants. VSX offers a ton of styles and prints, but OMGTHISPYTHONPRINT. When it comes to workout bottoms, I have run into the same problem time and time again: a lot of pants simply don't stay put. I have virtually no waist and no hips, so maybe it's on me and these waistbands have nothing to hang onto. If I had a dollar for every time I had to pull up workout pants because they were starting to slip downward... we wouldn't be here because I'd be living on my own private island somewhere. Anyway, I'm happy to report the Knockout Tight stays put! They're flattering and cute to boot. Most, most, most of all, these VSX items fit my number one criteria: THEY'RE COMFORTABLE!
So, why am I sharing all of this info with you? A) Because I love you and I love to tell you about products I love. B) Victoria's Secret Sport has an INCREDIBLE secret offer coming up!
