Moving Comfort Vixen Bra Review and Giveaway ...

If you've been reading this blog for any length of time, or have ever seen a picture of me, then you know that I am not exactly well-endowed. In fact, Dizzle once asked me, and I quote, "Did you have your boobies cut off?" Go ahead. Laugh. I did.

And even though I am OK with my pancake flat chest, I haven't stopped my search to find the perfect sports bra (i.e. one that supports, has a cuteness factor and maybe even adds a little "volume"). For the last three years, I have been wearing the perfect bra for active nursing moms. It's called the Fiona Bra by Moving Comfort.


Although, it's not technically a nursing bra, it does have these great adjustable Velcro straps that can easily be undone to nurse. I loved that bra. And I would have continued to wear it, but the smallest size it comes in is a B cup, and even that is too large for me.

Luckily, a few weeks ago, Moving Comfort sent me their Vixen Bra to test.

Moving Comfort says this about the Vixen Bra:

"Powerful performance meets cute design in this new pullover style, offering moderate contouring and maximum moisture transfer. Powermesh back and lining add support and breathability. Modified racer-back styling offers full range of arm movement and strap stability."

I was excited about this bra from the moment I opened the package. It definitely had the cuteness factor working for it AND it also had the slightest bit of padding, to give me that little extra "volume" I had been looking for. It was two for three before I even put it on.

Then came the real test. The run. I got dressed and headed out for a five miler. And the bra performed beautifully. I never felt like I was "bouncing." I felt secure without being suffocated. Not only did it provide excellent support, but it didn't shift at all. I had zero chaffing. This is a huge plus to me. I, like many women, have unknowingly fallen victim to bra chaffing only to find out how badly it had rubbed after I stepped into the shower. Ouch! Over the course of the last three weeks, I have logged close to 50 miles in this bra without a single complaint. Are you getting just how fantastic this bra is?

And now, thanks to the people at Moving Comfort, one of my readers will win their choice of either the Fiona or the Vixen bra. Here's how to enter (one comment per entry):

1. Visit the Moving Comfort website HERE, then come back and let me know what product you would like to try.

2. Become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment to let me know.

3. Become a fan of the Moving Comfort page on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment to let me know.

4. Become a fan of this blog on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment to let me know.

5. Repost this giveaway on your blog, Twitter, Facebook, mass text message, wherever and leave me a comment to let me know (one entry per repost).

Giveaway ends on Wednesday, April 7th. Winner will be randomly selected and announced on Thursday, April 8th.

*although I was provided with this product to test, I was not compensated for the review and it is entirely my own.

I LOVE Moving Comfort--I swear by the Alexis bra---I am an A cup and MC is the only brand that make a flattering sports bra for me (it also does not chaff under the bra line like other bras do too)---I have 7 Alexis bras in various colors--I will definitely try the Vixen too--Thanks.

Barefoot AngieB said...

I liked the look of the Alexis and the Vixen the best and of course in blue!
I just weaned my youngest son a month or so ago and I have certainly changed in my endowment. I would love a new bra to celebrate my new self.

csgrzesiek said...

You suggested the Fiona at the first Run Like a Mother social in January, and I decided to give it a try. How did I ever wear another bra? I am more endowed, and it's perfect. I have several but definitely would love to win another!

I am a fan on FB of both your blog and Moving Comfort, I follow you on Google Reader, and just tweeted about the giveaway.
