theMomBuff: A New Sports Bra from Victoria’s Secret

Okay, last Friday I went to Victoria’s Secret to buy some new bras. They are the only store I have luck finding bras that fit and are semi-comfortable. And this time I actually found two styles that fit so nicely, you barely feel them on! You should try them if you haven’t yet – Very Sexy and Dream Angels.

While I was there shopping, I made my way by their “new” athletic section. I had spotted sports bras last time I was there, but was in too much of a rush to pay too much attention. But this time I spooted this BRIGHT PINK sports bra that was just screaming my name. So I grabbed it to try it on.

Now if you’ve ever worn or tried on a sports bra, you know it can be like wrestling an octopus to get it on. And trying to get them OFF after a work out is wrestling an ANGRY octopus. They are so TIGHT around your rib cage, all in the name of support. And they squish any semblance of boobs you may have.

But the Victoria Secret Runway Sport Bra is different. First off, it has an adjustable back closure. So I was able to have it on the widest setting, allowing my lungs to expand and contract naturally. It also had four-way stretch, so it moves with my body as I pump my arms to run, do monkey bars, climb, do pull-ups and work out abs. (That was my workout for today!)

It’s athletic nylon fabric seems to wick away moisture, so it is not sopping wet when I am done. It also had breathable mesh panels on the back, between the shoulder blades. That’s actually a real HOT point on my body when running, so that was appreciated.

Finally, it allowed me to have a SHAPE. It is a medium support sports bra, and it’s halter-style front has some extra padding for shape. You actually look FEMININE in it! Yet, when I was done running it wasn’t “yucky” like running in a traditional bra. It is just so wicked-good!

It comes in 5 colors, heather gray, white, HOT PINK, BRIGHT YELLOW, black and dark blue. I am getting the yellow in April. (I have a secret reward card I can use April 1st!).

So that is my NEW, FAVORITE sports bra. Do you have a favorite sports bra style? Have you tried any of the Victoria’s Secret Sports apparel?

This post was NOT sponsored by Victoria’s Secret. In a way, it was sponsored by my hubby since he paid for my sports bra. He approves of all of my Victoria’s Secret purchases. If you want to see the EXACT Sports Bra I am suggesting, visit here: VS Runway Sport Bra

  1. I am so glad you posted this. I honestly hate dealing with sports bras because I hate getting them off more than putting those darn things on. I had looked at these over Christmas but never made it to the store to really check them out. I might have to pick up one of these.

    • I love the back closure. You still have to slip it over your head, but if your back is wide, set the back closure to the widest setting and you’ll see the difference. Definitely grab a few to try on at the store. And the pink is so PRETTY.

      TTFN!

  2. AWESOME I so need this now that I am working out daily I need some good sports bras and all the ones I tried in the past were terrible! Thanks for sharing your great find!

  3. Ooooh pretty!! Honestly, I used to work at Victoria Secret (several years ago) but didn’t know they sold sports bras. I totally get what you are saying about the angry octopus, all too well!!! I’m excited to check these out, it’s a nice cut for me too!!

  4. That sports bra is so cute. They’re one of the hardest things for me to shop for. But … VS drives me nuts with their sizing. It’s ridiculously difficult to find a 38B or worse a 40B. I think they forget that women can have a large rib cage and not have boobs.

    • Trust me, Cat, that’s me. I am 36 inches around the back and a size A. They also want to squeeze me in a 34 – I’d DIE! I just try on and buy what I like! They usually have limited styles and amounts for the unusual sizes.

      Happy Buzzing!

  5. Awesome!! Thanks for the recommendation! 🙂

  6. Oh Im in a market for sport bras. Thanks for the recommendation!

  7. I have been looking for a sports bra forever that does flatten my boobs into a hot mess. To be honest I didn’t even know that VS sold sports bras. I’m going to have to swing in and check them out.

  8. That is so cute, I might have to get one for myself, I haven’t bought a sports bra in years because they are usually horribly uncomfortable.

  9. A good sports bra is uber important – looking good mama!

  10. Oh I like that sports bra. I typically like the ones with a clasp in the back anyways. Thanks for the recommendation. By the way, wholly abs lady! 🙂

    • Aww! Thanks! I have a very athletic build, not curvy. But I do love my abs…. one of my favorite features. I get sad on days they dont pop as much. LOL.

      Happy Buzzing,

  11. You look incredible! And, that sports bra is so cute! I’ve looked at the VS athletic wear, but was afraid to spend so much on workout gear. (I did buy a headband on sale, though, and I love it.) Thanks to you, I know now it’s worth the money. I need a good sports bra … I usually end up wearing two.

    • I think most of my sports bras are in the $30 range, so I did pair this one with a coupon to get it to the amount I am used to. Try to get on the mailing list for the $10 coupons!

      Happy Buzzing!

  12. You look great!

  13. I’ve never found a sports bra I love, but a few I like. I’ve never tried VS for sports bras though, good idea.

    my daughter has been wanting a sports bra and this really looks like a good one for her. Thanks for posting your review!

  15. Sounds fantastic! I hate how sports bras just squish your boobs!

  16. Wow! A sports bra that holds a shape! I am impressed! I remember back in highschool the girls on my volleyball team would wear their normal bra under their sports bra to have the same affect (considering a lot of guys came to our games). That would have been nice to have because just the thought of sweating heavily in a real bra disgusts me these days.

    • Yes! That’s normally what I do too. But I don’t have to with this VS one. And I’ve washed it (of course) and it maintains its form. Love it!

      Happy Buzzing!

  17. Your disclosure made me laugh. I’ll have to check the VS sports bras out. It’s no fun wrestling an angry octopus.

    • LOL. I am glad I could give you a laugh! And you know what I mean about sports bras! Gosh – they should all be adjustable clip backs! It would make it so much easier!

      Happy Buzzing!
