Bust a move!
Devin Brugman used to need to wear three sports bras to get through a workout. (She’s a 32DDD.) “The only options were these maternity-style harness bras or slim, sexy types,” says Brugman, the co-founder of the A Bikini a Day Instagram and website. (Yes, she and bestie Natasha Oakley pose in swimwear every day; no, they are not insane.) So she designed her own bra, the “Devin,” for her Monday Active sportswear line. Here are her non-negotiables:
We need this so our breasts stay in place and because it prevents the stretching of the Cooper’s ligaments – the connective tissue in the breasts. (Stretching = sagging.) “Eighty percent of the strength and support of the bra is in the band,” says Jenine LaFayette of Brooks Running Canada. “It’s like the foundation of a house.” (The band should be tighter than your typical bra, so you may need to go down a size.)
If the cup is wrinkling, it’s too small and can chafe. Make sure it sits smoothly over the breasts.
Run in place, squat or do your best Britney Spears impression while trying on the bra in the change room. If it’s even the slightest bit pinchy, walk away.
(Don’t) free the nipple
Sleeping in a sports bra won’t make your girls perkier (sorry), but it can reduce pre-period tenderness. “It feels better because your breasts aren’t moving around at night,” says Dr. Ruth Heisey of Women’s College Hospital in Toronto.

He had us at hello.
Tom Cruise relived some of his best performances in a live montage on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night.
The video is nine minutes long (so grab a coffee before you tune in), but totally worth the watch to hear the Oscar nom utter some of his most famous lines like "I have the need, the need for speed" and "Show me the money!"
Also hilarious: a surprise guest appearance around the four-minute mark.

“I got you Bae.”
Cher is our favourite non-grown-up grown-up. (Check out her emoji-filled Twitter feed; it's the best.) James Corden obviously feels the same way, so he invited her onto The Late Late Show to sing her classic song “I Got You Babe” – with brand-new lyrics for the under-30 set.
With mentions of swiping on Tinder, sending nudes, and making things Facebook “offish," this may be the perfect millennial love song.
