HOVEOX Women's Plus Size Strapless Stretch Seamless Padded Bandeau Tube Top Bra
HOVEOX Women's Plus Size Strapless Stretch Seamless Padded Bandeau Tube Top Bra
Offered by Rellygonecy
Price: $7.99 - $8.88

5.0 out of 5 stars Meets expectations plus, July 27, 2015
I picked this up for my wife because she has difficulty with the average bra fit due to breast size and comfort. Without noting exact details, I will say she is not average-framed and wears larger bra sizes depending on the manufacturer, and noted interest because straps are normally uncomfortable and cut into her unless costumed-fitted.

According to her, this product fits comfortably and gives support without making her feel uncomfortable/any discomfort she normally associates with bras. It also does not cause sweating and excess irritation because of the breathable materials, which is a must in the heatwave where currently reside, and it does not roll or bind up while being adorned. She also noted that she feels more confident when dressing to go out, and it shows in her attire choices and in the way she does not second-guess choices. According to her, this is now her favorite bra and she expects to buy a few more, which is great considering everything noted plus pricing point.

Please note that this was supplied for sampling purposes and that reviews are 100 percent my own (or in this case, my wife's opinion as well). If there are changes in any way, I will update as needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good workout style headphones that really do not slip, July 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 4:02 Mins

The Mpow Shift Sport headphones are a good style workout headphone with nice aesthetics, a good fit, relative comfort, and good sound.

I was a bit concerned at first because of the design and the way they fit in-ear while also touting no-slipping, because this is essentially utilizing the ear as a grip. I have never been a huge proponent of odd-style fits, but these do a good job holding and they stay comfortable while doing so. The housing style is actually pretty comfortable, too, which I was unsure they would be at first because of the angled connection. This compliments the lightweight neck cord, which is nice when you are running and do not want to feel it bouncing up and down while you move.

Design-wise, these work well, with functionality appearing minimal, meaning you do not have a lot of buttons to juggle. There is an instruction booklet on how to use the call features and more, but these are fairly simple. You have a semi-discrete set of buttons and the controls are not outright noted, but you can easily find power, note the +/-, and more. The one thing that I didn't expect outright was that depressing the +/- for long periods would jump tracks if you want. This was a good feature as well. I am also partial to the coloration and think they look good while adorned.

Sound-wise, this perform well for workout-style headphones. When comparing Bluetooth sounds, I think there are varied sound designs that range from headsets that call first and allow you to listen as well, workout type headphones, and higher end music types sometimes with call-related functions. These are obviously in the middle category and work above expectations there. They have a good sound with minimal distortion and experienced no sound interruptions do to synch issues while in use. They also noise-isolate well and keep the world out while you are concentrating to boot, which I particularly like when I am off on my own.

Charging is via USB cord and these offer around 5 hours of use, which is standard/above standard with this type of headphone.

Overall, i like these and think anyone interested in the design with no slipping during your workout could make good use of them.

Please note that these were supplied for sampling purposes. They were tried out 5 times in real-world workout situations to test slipping, fit, and so on. They were also worn casually somewhat within the testing time. Sampling in no way influences review ratings.


Nature Bound Critter Barn Habitat Kit with Light

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Length:: 2:53 Mins

The Nature Bound Critter Barn Habitat Kit with Light is nice for introducing nature and to assist with you and/or your child catching/collecting organisms. The display shows a large frog on the picture, but this seems intended more for medium-sized to larger insects. I limit that to medium because of venting, although most "small" insects would work as well. It would fit a frog, too, but the detachable top and the small twistable door made me think "insect" from go, note to mention the fact that additional requirements would be needed except for transporting/extremely short-term living.

My daughter is not yet two and I have been introducing her to nature, and this has assisted me quite a bit. The insect in the video was liberated from our porch (where it was stuck), and we were able to easily trap it without harming it and will be able to release it the same way. I would not recommend someone do so, but this was utilized to capture some paper wasps in lei of spraying their nest as well, and it worked better-than-expected. You might need something like a solid sheet of paper or thin cardboard to get something with a stinger or large mandibles inside, but the smaller door functioned well for Figeater Beetles (June Bugs as they are regionally called here) when they appeared earlier this month.

Some good design notes about this include a sturdy handle, thick construction, a secure top, proper venting that is cut into thick material so mandibles or stingers do not reach curious hands (although care should still be employed), a magnifier, and an LED light. I really like the way the venting is situated, because you sometimes have an antennae comes through but nothing has yet to bite or sting anyone holding it. The magnifier words to a limited degree, but I like it nonetheless because it does not harm the design. It could, after all, be one solid piece of plastic instead. The LED light is actually pretty useful, especially if your child likes looking at things from all angles. The user of plastic also allows insects to actively move around, so they do not panic while inside the habitat.

Anyhow, I hope that helps and I hope the item assists you with your introductory or ongoing efforts to encourage your children to respectfully interact with the natural world.


Japan Anime Shingeki No Kyojin Cloak Attack on Titan Cosplay Cloth Large

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, with a few issues., July 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 2:10 Mins

Note: The added video is sideways due to an Amazon issue that will crop it otherwise. Please excuse this and hopefully it will assist you anyhow.

This Attack on Titan cloak has some great things going for it including coloration, some of the make, the size, the insignia, and the price point. It is a thicker cotton/polyester blend that gives it a canvas look that reflects the Attack on Titan feel in my opinion, making it nice. The coloration is pretty good and the insignia itself looks nice, making it something that you can detail to friends. Some of the stitching is done pretty well and gives it that well put together look, especially in areas around the hood. It also has a good length for even adults. Add that to the current cost of the item and it is pretty good.

That said, there are some issues here that do detract from it being great, and if you are looking for something to last long-term then you might have to do a few corrections.

First, there are some issues that appear around the insignia, specially in areas that are not stitched on. These areas seem ironed down and some of them did not do well, which detracts from what is an otherwise good-looking setup. From afar, you would not notice this and for a party, it would work great. The problem is that, over time, this and some stitching issues will require some upkeep in order for it to keep on keeping on.

Second, there is the button, which is not correct, and the fact that the hole for the button simply is not there. You can make your own, which is not a problem, but I kind of expected this detail to be there.

Third, there are stitching problems located here and there, including around the insignia and nearer the bottom of the item. For the price, this is not as big a deal as it would be otherwise, but it is still something.

Please note this was supplied for sampling purposes and this in no way impacts review rating. Price is a huge factor here as well, and the issues noted could be remedied by the person picking this up fairly easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set., July 25, 2015
Painting can be utilized for a myriad of reasons, from enjoyment and expression to healing and so much more. In my professional life, I sometimes utilize the medium for mental health treatment because painting allows individuals to express things that they could not arrange otherwise. This works quite well, but the LAST thing you want to worry about is the quality of paint you are using. That is why I like this set because it provides quality while also providing accessibility to the newcomer and the more established painter alike.

This was my first time utilizing a MyArtScape set, and I will be picking up more. Each color has a great consistency and adds a consistent hue, with the coloration lasting between uses. That means you get the same outstanding yellow or vibrant orange each time around. It applies well and has every little odor, which is great when you consider most alternatives within this price range. It also dries quickly and can be applied to differing mediums, from canvas, paper, and more. I noticed that wood and ceramics are noted as items it can be applied to and I have yet to try those out, but these have me thinking about different types of projects. I like that because it leaves limitation not to the tool but to the person creating.

Colors included are as follows:
Titanium White
Yellow Ochre
Lemon Yellow
Orange Yellow
Pale Green
Crimson
Phthalocyanine Green
Cerulean Blue
Phthalocyanine Blue
Burnt Sienna

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort and quality., July 25, 2015
I never thought I would need something of this nature, but when I did I have to say that am glad there are good companies out there. I add that after trying three brands to treat a blister between my toes and finding that only these worked out. It was a frustrating process, too, and that is why I am happy to add a review endorsing this product.

What separates these from other products on the market is the quality of manufacturing, the relative comfort that these add, and the fact that they fit multiple-sized feet. On the sizing issue, I have extremely long feet with lengthy, narrow toes and had issues with fit when it came to other products. These work not only on my big toe but also for my little toes as well. Fit impacted the comfort portion anyhow, but other products also utilized inferior designs and/or material and made me feel tormented. I am not saying that having something spreading your toes is fun or comfortable, but adding a soft silicone between them is something you can get used to and can actually relax while adding, which was only accomplished with this brand. The materials also did not aggravate my skin, which bodes well for the item's hypoallergenic qualities. Added to that is the fact that these are easy to clean off and are reusable, so you can always keep them around for later needs.

I tested these as a sample and needed them and am so glad they were available. The other items I bought from other companies did not do anything like these, and they had higher price points to boot.

Length:: 3:26 Mins

The Mengo Bumps are a good style headphone designed for working out. I tested these while walking and jogging to determine ease-of-use, fit, and sound quality, and was overall pleased by them. They offer a good distance from the device while still staying synched, they fit well in the ear and did not slip, the battery life was above average, and the sound quality was good overall and especially given the price point and Bluetooth medium.

When I first saw the Mengo Bumps, I have to admit that I was skeptical about their fit. I am not a fan of design oddity and I also wear glasses, which can be a deal-killer. Granted, I do like the coloration; their Chrome is a clean color and I have always been attracted to clean whites and variants of that, but the design itself was off-putting.

They start out kind of stiff, too, and take a minute to adjust properly, but once you have them seated, they work very well. They sit on your neck comfortably and loop over the ear, and the way they seat into the ear allows for no slippage. That means you can feel good about doing whatever and not worry about them falling off.

The headphones are also sweat-resistant, meaning that they work out well and do not damage from all your physical exertion. Remember this is resistant is not calling them water or sweat proof, so make sure you clean them well and do not expect them to survive rain and other outings.

Sound quality was good with these as well, with them performing above-average for workout headphones and great in the price range. The had good sound detailing and sounded good with calls as well, which boded nicely for them in testing.

Please note that these were provided for sampling purposes. They were tested over 20 days and taken out 8 times during that period. I found that I liked them more with continued use, too, and that they easily scored their 5-star rating after the 3rd outing. Sampling in no way impacts review rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars From garments to surfaces, this delivers., July 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 3:34 Mins

For the video, please excuse the audio quality. My microphone was not picking up well for some reason and this was the best of repeated recording attempts. Video quality is limited due to Amazon's limitations.

The Ivation 1500-Watt Fabric and Valet Steamer is an awesome accessory to add to your household for a few reasons.

First, it adds cleaning power to your everyday household chores, allowing you to really detail surfaces in both a quick and easy fashion. I cannot begin to tell you the difference this has made around our bathroom fixtures, where you think you are getting everything but end up leaving small flecks behind. It rolls easily so you can take it with you, and the adjustable hose and mounting allows you to move it without the fear of hot steam (which was initially a huge concern for me).

Second, you add the ability to treat garments in so many ways. Through the use of 4-settings (with pictures!), you can easily pick out what you are working with and your desired output. The usefulness does not end with garments, either. For myself, I steam my ties to get rid of wrinkles and it works like a charm. You can also clean up specific types of items depending on their needs, and the lint-brush attachment assists with detailing.

Assembly is easy; you have three items you have to secure and the lint attachment to put into place and that's it.

For use, you detach the water reservoir and fill it up - you do not have to worry abut leaks because it is designed with a spring inlay that has to be depressed in order for water to come up, select your setting, hit power, and go. It takes 45 seconds to get going, although some settings seem quicker, and you can quickly get to work on whatever your needs are.

Please note that you need to use this with care, and always make sure to point it away from yourself. Also, watch children around because of safety concerns.

This was provided for sampling purposes and has been used for 18 days before reviewing. In that time, I have been steaming my own shirts and cleaning fixtures and really like the item. I have also liked Ivation products; from lamps to this and more, they have come through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice flask for a good price, July 24, 2015

Length:: 2:52 Mins

The Ivation 8oz Stainless Steel Hip Flask with 2oz Shot Glass and Funnel is a good product for individuals wanting to carry a little something with them that is easy to access and drink from. There is the alcohol factor, but you can use this for so much more, and especially when you consider the fact that you have a small shot glass attachment. The stainless steel adds sturdiness as well as being a clean surface, and the leather additions make it comfortable without detracting from the overall look.

The 2oz shot glass attachment really is nice, because it fits well, collapses easily while still allowing you to handle it, and is flush enough that it does not hurt how it carries. I like the funnel as well because it allows me to fill easily and not worry about what I am doing. I checked the interior for cleanliness before initial use and it was surprisingly clean, and I tested water quality after use and everything was fine.

A couple of things I would note are the way that the leather is attached, with it basically being attached with glue, and the fact that the funnel is not something you can easily tote. The leather is still doing well and I will update if there is an issue, but i have noticed the glue somewhat. It stays down well and again has not had an issue, but I thought this worth mentioning. I also thought the funnel was interesting, but it would have been better if I could have added mobility to that as well.

Please note that this was supplied for sampling purposes, has been utilized for a two-week period, and that these are solely my opinions. Sampling in no way impacts review scoring.

5.0 out of 5 stars JOTO 4-port charger; a good product from a company with nice quality standards, July 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 3:14 Mins

The JOTO Car Charger line has been very reliable, and I say that owning multiple JOTO devices including 4 JOTO car chargers. The reason I own so many is because I am in the process of updating two vehicles and trying to take on the charging needs of multiple individuals plus modern technology. These days, that means a GPS, a minimum of one phone and normally more, a tablet or gaming device, a Kindle for trips, and whatever else is being used. In addition to the JOTO 4-port having more ports so you accommodate more devices, you also have each working at 2.4A, for a total of 9.6A.

I note this in the video, but basically what that means is that the JOTO can meet the needs of not only your phone but also tablets and larger devices as well by meeting their demands. With phones, you normally have a steady 1A charge for lengthy charging and this works for them, but for tablets you can handle more. What this does is provide quick charging, and it does so for any item including phones. Also attached to this particular issue is smart chip technology, which essentially tells the device the charge need and when the device is done. That means that you start out getting what you need and it does not allow your device to overload, it negates surges and other issues while charging, and it shuts off after it is done.

I loaded the video so you could also see the device outside of product pictures and see the quality attached to this item. JOTO products have consistently been like that, with a nice look and streamlined appeal that makes me feel good about their quality control and accordingly their use.

Please note that this was supplied for sampling purposes or at a reduced cost and was tested for around two weeks before the review was done. I take any item that has the ability to impact safety very seriously and never allow sampling to impact review rating.
