Valentine’s Day is upon us and it might possibly be making every Singleton cringe. However, who said that you have to be in a relationship to celebrate love?! Introducing, Galentine’s…
Victoria’s Secret welcomed Valentine’s Day by getting all of their VS girls together for the ultimate V-Day dinner. We drank, we ate (a lot) and we had the chance to view the all-new Victoria’s Secret lingerie and perfume collections.
It only seems right that Victoria Secret, the queen of lingerie, should have bras for every occasion- including sport. So it’s a good job that they have Victoria Sport to take care of all of us active ladies!
I’m a bit of a one for stripping down to my sports crop in the gym, meaning that I’m quite particular about my sports bras not only fitting well, but looking great too. The new Victoria Sport collection definitely ticks both boxes for me- fitting fabulously and looking good enough to wear to more than just the gym.
There’s a full range of activewear, including a variety of tops and bottoms (that you can see by clicking right here), but with the beautiful Victoria specialising in bras, it seemed only right to dedicate this purely to up top. Here’s my pick of my favourite Victoria Sport bras…
For any women a little smaller up top (like myself) or for less strenuous activities!
Sport Bralette in Grape Soda £18.18
Caged Racerback Sport Bra in Grey Oasis £22.27
For a little extra support…
Lightweight by Victoria Sport Bra in Inkblot Colorblock £26.82
The Player Racerback Sport Bra in Black Pearl £18.18
Full support for high intensity!
The Ultimate in Grey Marl £31.82
Incredible Front-close Sport Bra in White Colourblock £33.18

With the recent Victoria’s Secret show hitting London, all eyes were on those ridiculously lean legs, to-die-for abs and fabulously toned arms. Bodies that many girls would give their right arm, leg and make-up bag for (I mean who really needs make-up anyway when you have a body like that)! But just how do those flawless ladies get their bodies? The answer… boxing!
Everybody knows what boxing is, but it’s not exactly a sport that we participated in at school. In fact, I imagine that it was rather frowned upon. But boxing has quickly become the way to get fit fast. Victoria’s Secret models Lily Aldridge, Adriana Lima and Kelly Gale have all revealed boxing as their number one workout! If it’s good enough for the Victoria’s Secrets girls, then I definitely want to give it a try. So I did.
Going to boxing gym Gymbox, I had plenty of choice as to what kind of boxing I’d want to do. I decided on Thai boxing, as I have quite a lot of leg strength so thought this would work to my advantage. My initial thoughts were ‘how hard can this really be?’ Punch a few bags, throw a few kicks. But it was way harder than I expected. I’d worked up a sweat in no time and was working practically every muscle, including ones that I hadn’t used much before (or at all).
The truth is, that these beautifully fit women actually train hard to build and maintain their bodies! Whatever your ideal body would be, you need to work for it and that’s exactly what these ladies do. Boxing is intense but fun and even after a super hard session you’re eager to get back in the ring! When I gave it a go, there was a combination of men and women training together, all encouraging each other to push harder. It was great and there was a real sense of group bonding!
If you want to get fit, toned, have a full-body workout and have fun, then boxing is definitely the way to go.
So Victoria, you’d better watch out. We know your secret and we’re coming for you! xx
