So, as a Purex Insider I was THRILLED with the prospect of receiving a free Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra and a full sized Tropical Splash Purex Crystals fabric softener. An important note is that I have NEVER purchased a sports bra (I was given one that I used in college, but it was a bit loose). I have NEVER played sports. We have a Wii fit plus, though, and I have been wanting to get started with exercising again. Soooooo. . .I thought this would be a GREAT opportunity to try out a sports bra. Now, that said, I KNOW the purpose of a sports bra. However, keeping things in PLACE, and squeezing SO hard that I can barely breathe are NOT the same thing!!! Apparently I measured wrong, either that or I am a WIMP because getting into the Jockey Sports bra was difficult to say the least. I wore it for about 30 min. before I HAD to get out of it!! Taking off the sports bra was IMPOSSIBLE. I literally had to get my hubby to help me. If not for the graphic nature I am sure I could have won a million bucks on AFV if I had recorded and sent them the footage. YIKES!!! I was left with quite the indent on around my ribs to say the LEAST.
Now as far as the Purex Crystals fabric softener. I have used them before and LOVED them. They are by far and away the BEST fabric softener. Even the hubby's stinky, greasy McDonalds uniform comes out smelling FANTASTIC!! That is a feat!! :)
So, I think the moral to the story is NEVER buy a bra without trying it on, even if it is a sports bra!!! I blame myself totally on this, not Jockey. I have no doubt that had I gotten the right size it would have been GREAT! The material did seem to breathe very nicely for the 30 min. I managed to keep it on.
Now that you have had a chance to laugh at my misfortunes, let me give you a chance to win a Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra and a Full Sized Bottle of Purex Crystals fabric softener of your own. However, allow me to recommend that you try on one of Jockey's Sports bras first. Just to be sure what size to order (if you have never worn theirs before) that way you don't end up with a scenario like mine. ;)
Please note that I was asked to test these products and was given them to try FREE, but the comments and opinions expressed are mine alone.
