As working women in the modern world, we could probably all agree that if you are preparing for a major presentation it just makes sense to pull out your best suit and stilettos to wear on the big day. If you look good and feel good in what you’re wearing, your confidence will soar and you will be unstoppable. The same goes for your workout apparel! If you feel confident in the way you look, you can focus on your performance in the gym.
In West U/River Oaks (the area where I live in Houston), a lot of the women spend their entire Saturday in workout clothes. We workout, go to brunch, do grocery shopping and run errands in our workout clothes. Since we spend a lot of time in our fitness attire, it must be fashionable. I’ve found that most fitness apparel at sporting goods stores and department stores is quite frumpy and boring. I want fashionable, comfortable, feminine attire that looks great all day.
Last weekend, my sister and I went shopping at Victoria’s Secret in the Houston Galleria. I finally had the chance to shop the VSX Sexy Sport line in person. I examined the quality of the material and tried on a number of tops, sports bras, dance/yoga pants, running jackets, and t-shirts. As a dance fitness instructor, dancing is all about confidence, attitude and feeling sexy. This is exactly how I feel when I workout in VSX Sexy Sport apparel. Here’s my review of a few select items from the VSX clothing line that I took home in my red and pink VS striped shopping bag.
VS Knockout Sports Bra:
I absolutely love this sports bra! A front zipper adds that little bit of sexiness along with a unique crisscross keyhole design on the back. This may not be a traditional sports bra, but it still provides plenty of support for a high impact workout. At $44.50, you definitely don’t want to cover this sports bra up with a tank. So, if you are a little shy about showing off your midriff while working out, a more traditional sports bra is probably a better buy.
Graphic Boxy Tees:
I love these motivating workout tees! Wear them off the shoulder with a bright strappy camisole bra or tank underneath. I have the white tee, and I pretty much live in it! It’s a great tee to lounge around in on a Saturday or throw on after your workout.
The writing on this tee says:
“VSX Sport. It’s all about how you work it and how you wear it that counts.
It’s all about the love and it’s all about being sexy. Runway Body.”
This tee is HOT and definitely won’t be around for long!
I can’t say enough about these pants. Though I’m average height, I have a short torso and long legs. It is difficult to find workout pants with that flattering boot cut fit. These pants are available in short, regular and long length. For me the long length is perfect to lay right over the tops of my dance sneakers. The short length is great for those who enjoy yoga or pilates classes. The material is a nylon/Lycra spandex, so you can wash them over and over without fading like cotton workout/dance pants. The price may seem a bit high at $58.50, but trust me it is an excellent investment.
Incredible by Victoria’s Secret Bra Top:
I loved this top in the store, but had issues finding a size that really fit my body. Instead of selecting a standard S/M/L size, you select your top according to your bra size. This top didn’t look great on me, but looked amazing on my sister. This is one of those tops that you must try on before purchasing or at least order with a free shipping offer in case you need to exchange for another size. I did like the adjustable back closure, support and the flattering v cut in the front. If you are lucky enough to find your perfect fit, then you’ve got a great top for any workout, including high impact cardio such as running and aerobics.
Overall Review of VSX Sexy Sport:
The VSX Sexy Sport fitness apparel line is an excellent choice to build up your workout wardrobe. The bold, beautiful colors bring out that glow in all skin tones and the sleek fit flatters all body types. Get that runway body you want with VSX Sexy Sport.
