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.

So you know the guy who directed Black Swan and also Requiem for a Dream? Well, apparently he's also dating Jennifer Lawrence.
A 'friend' of J.Law's has told People mag that the A-lister / Emma Stone bestie and director Darren Aronofsky are casually hanging out, seeing where this goes, just enjoying each other's company etc etc etc.
It is worth noting, however, that while the couple were spotted together this summer, Aronofsky did also just wrap directing LawJ in a movie, the upcoming Untitled Darren Aronofsky Project. (That's actually what it's called RN).
Over the weekend, Kylie Jenner attended a Ferrari-themed fourth birthday party for her boyfriend Tyga's son, King Cairo.
Her niece, North West, was in attendance, and wanted to try on one of her aunt's liquid lipsticks for the occasion. The three-year-old asked to have the black shade (presumably, Kylie Cosmetics Dead of Knight) applied and totes loved it, as documented on Snapchat.
Is a three-year-old too young to be wearing lipstick? That's up to her parents to decide, but we don't anticipate North to be wearing the Kylie Cosmetics fall collection anytime soon. As Kylizzle posted on Snapchat (rather counterproductively, I might add): "What happens at auntie Kylie's, stays at auntie Kylie's."
Call your girlfriends.
Is it just us or did you also send a sappy text to your BFF WhatsApp group chat this a.m. after seeing this adorable photo of besties Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone at a screening of La La Land in New York?
Lawrence, who’s been keeping it low-pro for the past few months, stepped out to support her pal at the movie, which co-stars our secret boyfriend Ryan Gosling. Emma wore a dress by The Row and Jennifer wore a top by La Perla and pants by Ralph Lauren.
The two always have each others’ back. Emma recently revealed that she took care of Jennifer when she had a little too much fun at an Adele concert.
Oh, and just because we’re nice and have watched it 22 times ourselves this morning, here’s the La La Land trailer. #goslingforever
