Full Disclosure: I received a complimentary sports bra + capri's from Influenster for the purposes of review. As always, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that support Cornflake Dreams.
This past Saturday I received a package from Influenster -- it was a sports bra and capris from Victoria's Secret workout line: VS Sport. Overall I was very impressed with the quality and fabric of the two pieces. The Player Racerback Sports Bra had a bright turquoise, mint, gray, and black design and was super supportive. Usually I do not wear sports bras with that much support, so it was a little shock to the ladies. The Knockout Capri Pants were pretty snug on me (they were a size small). So I decided to exchange them for a larger size. I loved the black marl fabric, they were thick and you could not see-through them but the fabric seemed like it would breathe during workouts.
I visited my local Victoria's Secret store yesterday to shop around and check out the rest of the VS Sports line. Unfortunately my in-store shopping experience was less than stellar. I went during the week in the morning and I was the only customer in the store -- with three employees working. That should mean awesome customer service right? noooope. One employee asked me if I needed help finding anything and directed me to the workout gear but didn't offer any assistance while I spent 15 minutes digging through TONS of bras trying to find my size. I would have loved to try Knockout, Angel, and Seamless Support Sports Bras but some of the styles were not in the store and if they were I couldn't find my size. Thankfully I found two other options to try.
I tried on The Standout Sports Bra first, it was really difficult for me to get on with security tags right by the bra clasps -- argh why do stores do that?! Afterwards I tried on the PINK Seamless Bralette and it was perfect. It was easy to put on and very comfortable. It doesn't have a ton of support but it's just what I need for yoga and pilates.
I had trouble finding VS Sport bottoms in the store but Victoria's Secret PINK had a few legging options. The Marled Ultimate Yoga Leggings are a toned down version of most of the rest of the PINK line -- they did not have a huge logo or graphic running down the leg. The leggings ended up being a great alternative to the VS Sport Knockout Capri Pants (which I could not find in the store). I went with a size medium and they fit great and they are really cute. I also found a pair of super soft sweatpants but they didn't have my size and I can't find them online -bummer! So despite the poor customer service, I am very happy with my new sports bra and leggings and I can't wait to workout.
Have you tried the VS Sport line? What did you think?
