I Keep Re-Buying This $12 Hanes Sports Bra Bundle From Amazon

Over the course of my life, I’ve worn countless bras: simple T-shirt bras, supportive strapless bras, fancy lace bras—you name it. I’ve always prioritized comfort and support above all else, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t weigh how easy it would be to wash and care for my bras in the decision-making process, too. (Have you ever Googled how to wash bras—like, properly?) It wasn’t until I got older and went through some body changes—ahem, childbirth—that I realized I had been sleeping on the virtues of the basic, traditional sports bra for non-physical activity. It’s not luxe. It’s also not groundbreaking. But there’s only one bra I want to wear nowadays, and it’s sold as a bundle on Amazon.

It was my older sister who first turned me onto Hanes’ Comfort-Blend Flex Fit Pullover Bra. I had just had my first child, and I hated every nursing and pumping bra I had gotten—I didn’t love the two layers of fabric that most of them have, plus the elastic they use was harsh on my skin. I just wanted something soft and comfortable, that I could feed my newborn in. I complained to my sister about all of this, and she told me about the Hanes sports bra and how she found it to be a solid alternative to nursing-specific styles. I trusted her (and two-day shipping), so I ordered a pack.

Pretty quickly, I realized how this random Amazon purchase solved every single one of my nursing bra frustrations. I loved how it gave me the support I needed, while still being easy to pull up for a quick feed or pumping session. I sized up, to allow for the common postpartum size fluctuation, but the bra never felt too big or roomy. I would wear it to work, at night to sleep—every day, everywhere. Because it’s a sports bra, the racerback makes certain tops and dresses tricky, but it’s a small price to pay, in my opinion.

With every wash, the cotton-blend on this bra becomes softer and softer. And I can’t understate how much I love that I can throw it in the dryer without having to worry about the quality being compromised. (Hand-washing and line-drying are low on my list of priorities right now.)

I’ve kept buying and wearing this Hanes bra through a second pregnancy, and will go on and on about its virtues when given the chance. It’s not that I’m throwing out the rest of my bras—I still have my beloved molded cups and deep back styles—but this Hanes sports bra has made getting dressed as a mom a whole lot easier. And that enough makes the purchase worth it.

Lady Gaga’s New Album: Everything We Know So Far

Lady Gaga shut down rumors she’s pregnant on Twitter Tuesday night (March 12) by announcing something even bigger: She’s hard at work on her sixth studio album. “Rumors I’m pregnant? Yeah, I’m pregnant with #LG6,” she tweeted, to the delight of her 78.2 million followers. Granted, Gaga has said in the past she’s working on new music, but this is the first time she’s called it #LG6, which suggests the project is nearing completion and release.

This will be Lady Gaga‘s first solo album since 2016’s Joanne, which polarized fans with its acoustic, stripped-down sound—a far cry from the splashy, electro-pop hits that made her a household name. Details surrounding #LG6 are few and far between. Gaga’s only talked about it generally—but this hasn’t stopped fans from coming up with plenty of theories. Here’s everything we know about the new album so far. Of course, we’ll update this post with more information as it comes in.

The release date. Gaga hasn’t officially announced this yet, but fans can expect the record to drop this year—possibly within the next few months. The singer doesn’t return to Las Vegas for her Enigma residency until late May, so now seems like the perfect opportunity to tee up an album.

The sound. Shortly after announcing #LG6 on Twitter, Gaga followed Rihanna and the producer BloodPop on Instagram, fueling rumors there are collaborations in the works. Gaga keeps up with only 40 people on Instagram—a mix of close friends and people she’s worked with—which is why the Rihanna follow is a big deal.

BloodPop worked with Gaga on several songs for Joanne, but his production discography spans genres, so it’s unclear what kind of music they’re cooking up (if any). Meanwhile, fans have been inkling for a RiRi feature ever since she tweeted lyrics to Gaga’s song “Sexxx Dreams” back in 2013. From that alone, diehards gauged Rihanna and Gaga were coming up with a remix to”Sexxx Dreams.” To say their collaboration is overdue would be an understatement.

In July 2018, the cutting-edge electronic DJ Sophie revealed she was working with Gaga on her new record. “Yes,” she said when a fan asked her. “Whatever, you know. I’m working on a lot of different things. If it comes out, that’s cool.”

Justin Tranter, who’s produced hits for Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, and Gwen Stefani, was also spotted in the studio with Gaga in May 2018:

I also wouldn’t be surprised if Mark Ronson, Gaga’s Joanne and “Shallow collaborator, made his way onto #LG6, as well. Boys Noize, the German electronic producer, is also rumored to be on the album.

What Gaga has said about the new album. In November 2017, Gaga told Entertainment Weekly she’d started on #LG6. “I’ve started writing,” she said. “I have a lot of ideas and a lot of things I want to create, so you’ll see in a bit. I need some time to create.” She confirmed to Vogue in October 2018 that new music was in the works too.

The songs. Entertainment Weekly reports in November 2017, Gaga previewed a song either called ““Frankenstein” or “Frankensteined” for fans that was supposedly new material. Of course, it’s very possible this was just an experiment that will end up on the cutting room floor.

ARTPOP could be a major influence. Gaga’s 2013 ARTPOP record was unjustly crucified despite it being one of her most energetic and cohesive offerings to date. It’s quite likely #LG6 will recall that era in more ways than one. DJ White Shadow (real name Paul Blair), a frequent Gaga collaborator, is said to be involved with #LG6, and even called the project ARTPOP‘s “little sister.” “For all her flaws, strangeness and beauty, I thank you ARTPOP for the lessons learned and the gifts you gave. Happy 4th Birthday. I can’t wait to introduce you to your little sister,” he posted to Instagram, according to EW.

Noria Morales: What It Costs to Be Me

These days it’s nearly impossible to know what women are spending on the way they look. Someone with Instagram-flawless contouring might have honed her craft using the finest from the drugstore aisles, and the utterly makeup-free type might be spending thousands on laser treatments and serums. Enter our series “What It Costs to Be Me,” in which we’re asking interesting women for radical transparency.

Next up? Noria Morales, senior director of design and influencer partnerships at Target, 40, New York City. Her annual total? $10,418

The first thing you might notice about Noria Morales is her hair: long, luxuriant, and shot through with silver. But while Morales consistently gets noticed for her gray hair now, it’s not something she spent much time thinking about in the process of achieving it. “It’s been a subtle evolution in my hair, so much so that I didn’t really realize it was happening until a couple of years ago,” says Morales, whose started turning gray in her mid-30s. “I’m still too lazy and not fearful enough of gray hair to start coloring.” In the same let-it-be spirit, Morales tries to take a natural approach with all her beauty regimens, prioritizing overall wellness. “I’m very cognizant that my body just turned 40,” she says. “So I’m passionate about sleep, working out, and minimizing the stress and anxiety I feel.”

But “natural” is not the same thing as being completely laissez-faire; hair color may not rank as a necessity, but Morales invests in sanity-saving treatments like massages and nails, and little luxuries that make self-care feel like less of a chore (like fancy Italian toothpaste and a straightening iron that eliminates the need for blowdry appointments). And there’s one category that gets a free pass, money-wise: “I spend whatever I want on exercise,” she says. “It’s better than going to a bar.”

My shower routine: $140

I shampoo twice a week with Garnier Fructis ($6) or Pantene ($7). If someone has a great shampoo for hair that is graying, please tell me! Because I still haven’t found a great one. About once or twice a month I use deep conditioning hair masks (approximately $3 to $4 each)—I like the single serve packets you get at drugstores, and they feel great on my hair. I wash my body with Molton Brown Sandalwood body wash ($32). The smell just makes me happy. I use this fancy sponge ($20) that I got at New London Pharmacy, but honestly it doesn’t give me as good a lather (and I love a healthy lather) as a good ol’ pouf. One to two times a week, I wash my face in the shower with Grown Alchemist’s scrub ($67), which I bought at Heyday. Otherwise I try to just use water.

My hair regimen: Approximately $624

I’ve never colored my hair. I cut it once or twice year at Serge Normant in New York City with Xavier ($200), and then if I need to get a quick trim I go anywhere in my neighborhood (approximately $100), because I can’t be spending what I spend at Serge.

Because I try to limit hair washing to two times a week, I use a lot of dry shampoo, and I love the one from Living Proof ($24). My hair texture has really changed (those frizzy grays, blech), so I can’t just wash and air dry like the good old days. The gray that is coming in is a totally different texture, and it’s really coarse and frizzy. But I also hate blowdrying. So now I usually do my “Sade” style with a slicked-back pony-braid until it dries (which usually takes four to six hours), followed by a straightening iron the next day with my GHD straightener ($199). That thing is amazing and my hair always looks great after I use it. I go through phases with my hair, and there was a time when I had a DryBar membership and was getting a blowout every one or two weeks—but now that I have that straightener, I very rarely do it.

My daily skin and body care: $500

I hate washing my face, but I find deep satisfaction in removing my makeup with wipes (Patchology Clean AF, $20) or oil makeup remover (Clinique Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent, $20). I like seeing the dirt come off. So gross, right? Then I have a slew of different natural products that I rotate through. I don’t stick to a routine. But I do love face mists. I use Pixi’s Milky Spray ($15) that I got at Target and Kiehl’s Cactus Flower and Tibetan Ginseng, ($27) all day long because I think it makes me look fresh—like I just exercised and took a shower. I also use a serum every day. I’m currently into Dermalogica Biolumin-C serum ($87), which I follow with Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil ($82). If I need cream on top of that, I like Goop’s Juice Beauty daytime moisturizer ($100).

Kim Kardashian Shared a Makeup-Free Selfie of Her Latest Psoriasis Flare-Up

People have complicated relationships with Kim Kardashian and her role in the modern cultural landscape, to say the least. But one thing that Kim continues to do that’s inarguably a good thing is normalize the skin condition she has: psoriasis.

The reality star and cosmetics mogul may have a highly curated public image, but she’s never been afraid to talk about—and show—what it’s like to live with psoriasis and its flare-ups. In case you’re not familiar, psoriasis is a skin condition which causes skin cells to build up and cause scaly, itchy dry patches on your face and body. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, Kardashian is one of approximately eight million Americans dealing with the condition. It affects women’s quality of life more than men and usually first appears between the ages of 15 and 25, though it can occur at any age.

Kardashian recently shared new images of her most recent flare-up on Instagram Stories, which she captioned the makeup-free video, “Psoriasis face.”

Kardashian’s long history with psoriasis has been part of storylines on Keeping Up With the Kardashians since practically the beginning of the show and is probably one of her most relatable qualities. (Her mom, Kris Jenner, also has it.)

While there is currently no known cure, Kardashian also recently showed herself using an herbal ointment treatment with the caption, “Psoriasis is the shits.” She’s also called out tabloids for commenting on her “bad skin.”

Fans certainly appreciate her candor on the subject. “Crazy that @KimKardashian shows us her psoriasis on her face not crying and not throwing a tantrum to her mother,” a social media user wrote. “honeslty if theirs [sic] anyone who has changed the most it’s Kim. I love her, who am i kidding though i love everyone.”

“This is what I appreciate about the Kardashians; they put everything on camera for the world to see. The down side is that it’s easy to get caught up in the illusion of feeling like you actually know them,” another said on Twitter.

Hope this flare-up settles down soon, Kimberly.

Kim Kardashian West Shared a Makeup-Free Selfie of Her Latest Psoriasis Flare-up

Nick Jonas Gave Priyanka Chopra a $170,750 Car Because His Song Went Number One

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas have never really done anything halfway when it comes to their relationship. They’ve had early dates at the Met Ball, hosted multiple wedding receptions to celebrate their marriage, and put their love on display in a music video for Jonas’ new song, “Sucker.”

Now, we can add extravagant gift-giving to the list. In honor of the Jonas Brothers’ “Sucker” hitting number one on the Billboard Top 100, Jonas gave his wife a brand new Mercedes Maybach. (This is the first time the Jonas Brothers have made it to the very top of the charts, previously topping at number five with “Burnin’ Up” in 2008.) It’s obviously a huge accomplishment that Jonas wanted to mark in a special way.

Chopra showed off her new ride, which she dubbed “Extra Chopra Jonas,” on Instagram, writing, “When the hubby goes number one.. the wifey gets a @maybach !! Introducing.. Extra Chopra Jonas.. haha .. I love you baby!! Yaaay! Best husband ever.” Also spotted in the photo, some (surely expensive) bubbly and Chopra’s dog, Diana.

Take a look:

These two are nothing if not publicly supportive of each other’s career accomplishments, as Chopra bragged about her husband’s milestone in a previous post:

The car, a 2019 Mercedes Maybach S650, starts selling at $170,750. Add in any customizations, and you have one helluva expensive gift. Perhaps Jonas credits his wife with some of the song’s success, given that “Sucker” and the accompanying video are all about the women in the Jonas Brothers’ lives. Chopra plays a starring role, alongside Joe Jonas’ fiancé, Sophie Turner, and Kevin Jonas’ wife, Danielle Jonas. The lyrics may have been a clue: “And you’re making the typical me break my typical rules. It’s true, I’m a sucker for you, yeah.”

No word yet on whether Danielle and Sophie can expect similar gifts from Joe and Kevin.

Hannah Brown Is the New Bachelorette, and Bachelor Nation Has a Lot to Say About It

A new season of ABC’s The Bachelor has come to a close with Cassie and Colton announcing that they are, yes, still together and in love. We also found out during the finale who will be the star of the next round of The Bachelorette when it begins this May: Hannah Brown, a.k.a. Hannah B, a 24-year-old former pageant queen.

“Even before The Bachelorette announcement, it was good for me to figure out who I am and what I want,” Brown told Glamour recently. “You can fall in love on this show, and if my person is here on this new journey with me, that’s amazing. I’m so open to it. I’m not here to just be on TV. I truly believe in this experience and want to find my person.”

“I’m happy for Colton. He was able to choose somebody and it wasn’t me, and that’s okay,” she also told People. “I’ve moved on. And I’m excited to find my person.”

But how is Bachelor Nation feeling about this announcement? Here’s what people are saying about the new Bachelorette on social media.

Many are on board

“It never ceases to amaze me how people, specifically women, get hyped whenever the Bachelor is announced, but when the Bachelorette is announced those same women slam and criticize whoever is chosen,” one user wrote. Another said, “Am I the only one who find Hannah B’s awkwardness really quirky and adorable? She’s growing on me.”

Others, however, were less psyched.

“Okie I don’t know if I can watch Hannah B all season,” one Twitter user said. “Does anyone else feel incredibly awkward when Hannah B is on stage? It’s awkward and she seems so uncomfortable. This is going to be weird,” another wrote.

Hannah’s season of The Bachelorette premieres on ABC on May 13.
