Not all sport bras are created equal

Full Disclosure:  This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria’s Secret products to test and review as part of a contest. Compensation was not provided and as always, I will give my honest opinion about the product. Complete PR & Disclosure here.

Angel by Victoria Secret Sport Bra - the name in itself makes you want to instantly go out and get one. Victoria’s Secret has built a reputation for being THE number one authority on lingerie.  But today, we’re not talking about bras and panties - we’re talking about Sport Bras.

It makes sense that VS came out with a sport line, as I’m sure their models are constantly working out to keep fit for their endless photo shoots, commercials, and fashion shows.  But does VS have what it takes to really step up and make more than just a pretty sport bra?  Let’s find out! THE LOOK:  I received the Angel by Victoria’s Secret Sport Bra to test out a couple of weeks ago and instantly fell in love with the design.  It’s sleek, fashionable, and a bit flirty.

THE FIT:  VS designed their Angel Sport Bra to use the same sizing as their standard bras - no more guessing if you’d fit best in a small, medium, or large.  I wear a 34C and received a 34C and it fit like a glove.  What’s really cool about this particular Sport Bra is that it has memory foam built-in so it adapts to you and you’re workout.  It also has underwire for additional support (and you can NEVER have too much support)!)  The back is criss-cross and has an adjustable 3-row hook-and-eye closure.  I was originally worried about the straps not having an adjustment slide but I didn’t need it after all.

THE FEEL:   When I put on the Angel Sport Bra it felt like it was hugging me in all the right places.  It kept me secure in both an upright & upside-down position and didn’t pinch or constrict.  The fabric is very smooth and I almost forget I had it on, much like my favorite bra.

THE SUPPORT:  This bra is classified as medium support.  I don’t know what falls into the “medium” support category, but I can tell you that it stood up very well to my DDP Yoga class, gym training, zumba,  kettlebell and VSX Sport Arms Workout.

EXTRAS:  The Angel Sport Bra is machine washable and has body-wicking technology to keep you cool and dry.  Both of these are a HUGE bonuses in my book.  I definitely don’t like washing apparel by hand, nor do I have the time, and I really don’t like to have sweat marks across my chest bleeding through to my shirt.  It’s just not pretty.

PRICE:  What would you pay if you knew you could have a high-quality sports bra that did it’s job and looked sexy?  I don’t know about you - but a good sports bra is hard to find so I’d pay just about anything (within reason). Currently the Angel Sport Bra is $44.50 - $55.50 depending on color.  It’s pretty up there, but not completely out of my price range and now that I’ve been wearing it for a couple of weeks - I would say it’s WORTH EVERY PENNY. SURVEY SAYS:  At first glance, I loved the look of this sport bra and after the first workout - I loved everything else about it too!  I love it so much that I headed out to the nearest VS store (during a rain storm) to get more.  I didn’t get just 1 more sport bra - I got 2!!  Why? Because during Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale they are only $25-$29!!!  Seriously good buy.  If I could afford it - I’d get more, but I’m pretty content with having 3 for now.

So there you have it.  The Angel by Victoria Secret Sport Bra is a winner in my book and is definitely going on the Body Rebooted Stamp of Approval list.  I had a #SportBraBreakup  conversation of “it’s not me - it’s you” with my old bras just before I gave them the boot to make room for my 3 new flirty and fabulous sports bras from VS.  Now that I’ve had a look into their VSX Sport line - I’m trying out their capri leggings next!
