I recently joined a word of mouth (WOM) marketing group called Influenster. Stay tuned for a whole post devoted to WOM marketing and how you can flex your social media influence in order to get free things in exchange for reviewing them. After doing several surveys on the Influenster website I was sent a free Victoria’s Secret Sports Bra ($52 value) and their new sports pants ($62 value). I can’t believe I got $114 worth of free stuff just to review it on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and of course, my blog! I highly recommend joining Influenster if you love sharing your opinions on social media.
I was so excited when this package came in the mail! Not only did it include the VS Incredible Sports Bra and pants, it also came with ten 25% off coupons for any VS Sports purchase. I’ve been passing them out to all my friends! This is a huge savings, especially since the Player Sports Bra is currently on sale for only $29.50 or 2 for $49.50. Last week their Angel Sports Bra was on sale for $30 so it looks like they will continue to offer specials on these bras for a while!
I wasn’t in love with the print on the sports bra so I took it back to the store and was pleasantly surprised to find that exchanging my free bra was easy, even without a receipt. I ended up getting the Standout Sports Bra in the same print as my pants.
I love that the Standout has adjustable straps that make it easy to fit any size. The cups are perfect because they hold my boobs in just the right place during spinning, yoga and Pilates. My boobs may be tiny, but they still move around a lot during exercise, especially after a year of breastfeeding. I hate having a bra that doesn’t fit right when working out. With the VS Sports Bras you don’t have that problem because they are all sized to fit you the same way their regular bras fit.
Here is a selfie of me and Robert before my first test workout.
I wish I was bold enough to take a selfie without the tank top. Sorry, I’m not willing to show my belly on social media, not even for free workout gear.
The pants are my favorite part of this freebie. They have a tiny adjustable strap which makes it much more versatile. My weight can fluctuate a bit when I’m working out and it is nice to know that these will fit if I gain a little bit of weight and if I lose some. They fit perfectly throughout the legs and I’m loving the color. I have way too many black workout pants that it is nice to add gray to the mix.
The big question is, do I think the workout gear is worth the money? I would say absolutely! If you work out hard core, you know how important it is to have the right bra and you know that they don’t come cheap. Not even at the big box stores. You get what you pay for, and with Victoria’s Secret Sports Bras you get quality bras that will last. I think you could even save money by having a nice bra that lasts a while instead of having to replace your cheaper bras often. I love that VS sweetens the deal by offering special sales and coupons. It makes it so much easier to justify the cost of a quality bra.
It would be rude of me to tell you all about the fancy workout clothes I’m wearing for free and not tell you how you can get a great deal too.
