Purex® Complete Crystals/Jockey® Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra

I recently had the opportunity to test Purex® Complete Crystals Softener and a Jockey® Tech Terry Performance sports bra and will leave my reviews separately below.

Purex® Complete Crystals Softener
     I was rather surprised at how much I liked the Tropical scent of the Purex® Complete Crystals Softener. I have absolutely terrible allergies so I cannot handle pretty much anything that is not free and clear, especially things with a tropical/citrus scent or softening abilities, however, I tried the Purex® Complete Crystals Softener in spite of it. I did use a small load cap-full for a larger load, but usually my allergies would still act up from that but they didn't! My clothes were softer, they smelled good, and it didn't bother my allergies! I was in shock and let me tell you, my husband will be so happy to hear this news as I will now be able to use this on his ABUs. My only complaint would be that this product claims to reduce static (and this may be from using a smaller amount) but my clothes came out as "staticy" as ever. It's not a big deal to me, but don't purchase this if you just want something to reduce static.

     I hate to complain about products in a product review, but in all honesty, I was not impressed with this sports bra. I was never really a huge fan of sports bras, but since I am trying to be more active and exercising I decided I'd love to try one out so I snatched up this opportunity very open-minded. In getting the bra in the mail, I really liked the way it looked and felt in my hands, but after trying it on my opinion was changed. The material was rather uncomfortable, though it did keep my cool and less sweat-prone as it claimed. The waist for me was decent on the bottom but stuck out on the underarms (maybe I'm shaped weird...) I also would not recommend wearing this bra if you will be in cooler temperatures at all while wearing it... I happen to have a chest and I did not feel I received very much support from this bra and it made me look flat-chested. I supposed that's supposed to help with activities, but I really expected more support than I got. Overall, I would not recommend this sports bra, but it is my opinion and if you love sports bras to start, you may find you really like it. My suggestion: still try on this bra and see how you like it, but remember it may or may not be for you.
