Jockey and Purex Crystals Giveaway

A good, supportive bra is vital if I'm going to do much free motion quilting without killing my shoulders and back. If I'm quilting in my pajama pants and t shirt, that means a sports bra. So when Purex insiders offered to send me a Jockey Tech Terry sports bra and a bottle of Purex Crystals Tropical Splash fabric softener to review, I was thrilled.



The bra seems very well constructed and has wide shoulder straps. Narrow straps that dig are one of my pet peeves with many bras. This To my great disappointment, it didn't fit. I should've seen that coming -- after six years of breastfeeding, finding bras that fit well can be extremely tricky.

Because I couldn't wear it myself and wanted the opinion of someone who could, I passed the on to a friend who was equally impressed by the fabric and construction, and by the great support it provides.

Want to try the Tech Terry sports bra out yourself? Jockey will send you a 20% off coupon for their new sports bra.

I've got Purex Crystals in the load of laundry I'm washing right now. You just measure them in at the beginning of a load -- no little dryer sheets to try to remember later! They add a pleasant scent to the fabric and can be used in any washing machine, even my ancient one. I'll probably be buying these again, but I think I may try the fresh spring water scent next time.

Purex Insiders is letting me give away a Tech Terry sports braand bottle of Purex Crystals fabric softener to one of my readers. To enter, just be a follower and leave a comment on this post before 11:59pm January 17.

I thought that I was crazy by wearing a sports bra when I quilt! (I wear the WalMart ones- the pullover cheap fabric ones, but my back and shoulders don't hurt when I am done!)

Am a follower and the crytals sound interesting to try!

I think I saw the emblem on the bottle but I couldn't tell for sure -- is it High Efficiency (HE)? We've got a single door combo washer/dryer and I am *very* careful what I use in it! If it smells good, I'm all for it! Thanks, Michelle! :)
