Influenster Review: #VSSportBra #Sponsored

I received promotional items from Influenster and Victoria's Secret to facilitate this review and blog post. All opinions are my own.

Not a food post! But related to my constant struggle to become healthy again and drop some extra pounds I've been carrying around...

If you've been around here for any sort of length of time, you may have realized something: the gym is my mortal enemy. I hate it. I went from being effortlessly skinny as a 0 to 25 year old, to now gaining about 10 lbs a year if I do nothing about it. That's... kind of scary to me.

So, recently I've put at least a little bit of effort into going to the gym. Though in the past month I've been down 5 lbs and then up again to my usual (bigger) weight, then back down 5 again, at least it feels good to know I'm doing SOMETHING about it, and that hopefully soon I'll see real results.

One of the things I'd been putting off was getting new workout clothes. I always feel a little bit better if I have a specific gym outfit that keeps all the jiggly bits in, while looking decently cute in the process.

Can I just say that I am LOVING my Victoria's Secret Sport Bra? It's adorable and pink, but also keeps everything supported while I toil away at the elliptical. And the slight cup is great so I don't feel totally smooshed.

The provided leggings are also a dream--so comfortable! I think these will find their way into my regular fall outfits as leggings under dresses and such. Not only do they keep the jiggle under control, they're soft and stretchy and I've actually spent the entire day lounging about in them.

I'm never going to be one of those girls who LOOOOVES running, or yoga, or hangs out at the gym on the regular. But here's hoping I can at least find the gym tolerable enough to reach my goals and maintain them. And cute gym clothes always help ;)

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.


  1. I AM SO JEALOUS! i want a VS sports bra!

  2. You at least make it TO the gym, that's like half the battle. I've never even been in a gym (unless you count middle school gyms or a random treadmill in an apartment complex) but I do have a treadmill in my living room, that mainly sits there not be used ;-)
