Are You Wearing the Right Bra?

By Nicole Gergits
October 24, 2014 - 11:45am

Many women are well educated about style. They know what outfits flatter their figures best and what hair colors suit their skin tones. Many women, though, are making one big mistake every day: they’re wearing the wrong bra. And wearing the wrong bra essentially turns even the best outfit to crap. I was a sales associate at Victoria’s Secret this summer, and although I was only working there for the summer, I feel as though I have gained a lot of insight on the way bras should look and feel for all women.

Why 90's Music is Better Than Music Today

As many BU students are children of the 90s, this decade holds an extremely special place in our hearts. We all remember the ridiculously voluminous front bangs, high waisted jeans and fabulous scrunchies (many of which we donned ourselves.) But what makes the 90s really so special?

Even 9,000 years from now, when the world is ending, we will all be wearing jeans. The analogy I use to best explain the importance of jeans is their similarity with pizza. Pizza has been around forever and I believe 99% of the world loves it. There used to be just the basics; cheese, pepperoni, veggie etc. Nowadays there are more types of pizza than shoes in my closet (that is a lot). They even have breakfast and dessert pizzas!

Getting the motivation to sit down at your desk and study is already nearly impossible. How can we concentrate when we are busy falling for fall? Taking a glimpse at your study space, barren with some stray broken pens and empty gum wrappers, ruins any chance you have at being productive. These 10 décor ideas probably won’t make studying any easier, but they might make you just a little bit happier amidst that homework grind. 1.

On Sunday, I caught Jenna Abbot on the phone as she was returning to her home in Stuvi I after seeing a close friend perform in Stage Troupe’s Parents Weekend “Into the Woods” show. Even though she’s busy with her courses, thinking about graduation, social justice initiatives and Kappa Delta, she still finds time to spend time catch up with her friends. Jenna is the kind of person who glows with life…and knows EVERYONE. And if you don’t know her, I’m sure she’d love to get to know you. She radiates enthusiasm and passion in all that she does. Jenna cares so much about her friends and community, but also the world. READ MORE
