"Julia Stiles"



Julia O'Hara Stiles (born March 28, 1981) is an American actress.

After beginning her career in small parts in a New York City theatre troupe, she has moved on to leading roles in plays by writers as diverse as William Shakespeare and David Mamet. Her film career has included both commercial and critical successes, ranging from teen romantic comedies such as 10 Things I Hate About You (1999) to dark art house pictures such as The Business of Strangers (2001). She is also known for playing the supporting character Nicky Parsons in the Bourne film series and the leading role in Save the Last Dance, and for her role in Mona Lisa Smile. She guest starred as Lumen Pierce in the fifth season of the Showtime series Dexter, a role that earned her Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations.

Stiles was born in New York City, the eldest of three children. Her mother, Judith Newcomb Stiles, is a potter, and her father, John O'Hara, is a businessman. Stiles is of English, Irish, and German descent. She started acting at age eleven, performing with New York's La MaMa Theatre Company.

Stiles's first film was a non-speaking part in I Love You, I Love You Not (1996), with Claire Danes and Jude Law. She also had small roles as Harrison Ford's character's daughter in Alan J. Pakula's The Devil's Own (1997) and in M. Night Shyamalan's Wide Awake (1998). Her first lead was in Wicked (1998), playing a teenage girl who might have murdered her mother so she could have her father all to herself. Critic Joe Balthai wrote she was "the darling of the 1998 Sundance Film Festival"[6] and Internet movie writer Harry Knowles said she was the "discovery of the fest", but the film was not commercially released in the U.S. and went direct-to-video.



In 1999, she portrayed Kat Stratford, opposite Heath Ledger, in Gil Junger's 10 Things I Hate About You, an adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew set in a high school in Tacoma, Washington. She won an MTV Movie Award for "Breakthrough Female Performance" for the role, and the Chicago Film Critics voted her the most promising new actress of the year. Foreign critics applauded her work as well, including Adina Hoffman, who praised her as "a young, serious looking Diane Lane" and Martin Hoyle, who commented that Stiles played Kat "with bloody-minded independent charm from the beginning with hints of wistfulness beneath the determination."

Her next starring role was in Down to You (2000), which was panned by critics, but earned her and her co-star Freddie Prinze, Jr. a Teen Choice Award nomination for their on-screen chemistry. She subsequently appeared in two more Shakespearean adaptations. The first was as Ophelia in Michael Almereyda's Hamlet (2000), with Ethan Hawke in the lead. The second was in the Desdemona role, opposite Mekhi Phifer, in Tim Blake Nelson's O (2001), a version of Othello set in a private boarding school. Neither film was a great success; O was subject to many delays and a change of distributors, and Hamlet was an art house film shot on a minimal budget.

Stiles's next commercial success was in Save the Last Dance (2001), as an aspiring ballerina forced to leave her small town in downstate Illinois to live with her struggling musician father in Chicago after her mother dies in a car accident. At her new, nearly all-black school, she falls in love with the character played by Sean Patrick Thomas, who teaches her hip-hop dance steps that get her into The Juilliard School. The role won her two more MTV awards for "Best Kiss" and "Best Female Performance", and a Teen Choice Award for best fight scene for her battle with Bianca Lawson. Rolling Stone pronounced her "the coolest co-ed," putting her on the cover of its April 12, 2001 issue. She told Rolling Stone that she performed all her own dancing in the film, though the way the film was shot and edited might have made it appear otherwise.



In David Mamet's State and Main (2000), about a film shooting on location in a small town in Vermont, she played a teenage girl who seduces a film actor (Alec Baldwin) with a weakness for young girls. Stiles also appeared opposite Stockard Channing in the dark art-house film The Business of Strangers (2001) as a conniving, amoral secretary who exacts revenge on her boss. Channing was impressed by her co-star: "In addition to her talent, she has a quality that is almost feral, something that can make people uneasy. She has an effect on people." Stiles also had a small but crucial role as Treadstone operative Nicolette "Nicky" Parsons in The Bourne Identity (2002), a role that was enlarged in The Bourne Supremacy (2004), then greatly expanded in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007).

Between the Bourne films, she appeared in Mona Lisa Smile (2003) as Joan, a student at Wellesley College in 1953, whose art professor (Julia Roberts) encourages her to pursue a career in law rather than become a wife and mother. Critic Stephen Holden referred to her as one of cinema's "brightest young stars," but the film met with generally unfavorable reviews.



Stiles played a Wisconsin college student who is swept off her feet by a Danish prince in The Prince and Me (2004), directed by Martha Coolidge. Stiles told an interviewer that she was very similar to the character, Paige Morgan. Critic Scott Foundas said while she was, as always, "irrepressibly engaging," the film was a "strange career choice for Stiles." This echoed criticism in reviews of A Guy Thing (2003), a romantic comedy with Jason Lee and Selma Blair. Critic Dennis Harvey wrote that Stiles was "wasted," and Stephen Holden called her "a serious actress from whom comedy does not seem to flow naturally".

In 2005, Stiles was cast opposite her Hamlet co-star Liev Schreiber in The Omen, a remake of the 1976 horror film. The film was released on June 6, 2006.

She returned to the Bourne series with a much larger role in The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, and to this day it is her highest grossing film. Producer Lynda Obst said that Stiles was "turning into the next Meryl Streep." Stiles also appears in the 2008 film Gospel Hill. She portrayed a woman who falls in love with her stalker in the 2009 thriller The Cry of the Owl, based on the novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith.

Julia Stiles began filming on her latest project, Between Us, in May 2011 with co-stars Taye Diggs, David Harbour and Melissa George. Between Us is the screen adaptation of the off-Broadway play by the same name written by playwright Joe Hortua. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, where its producers hoped to find a domestic distributor. The film has since screened at 15 film festivals, winning the grand jury prize at the 2012 Bahamas International Film Festival.

In 2012, Stiles starred alongside David Cross and America Ferrera in the dark comedy It's a Disaster. The film premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival, and has been picked up by Oscilloscope Laboratories for commercial distribution. The film will premiere in select theaters starting on April 12, 2013.

Stiles's first theatrical roles were in works by author/composer John Moran with the group Ridge Theater, in Manhattan's Lower East Side from 1993–1998. She later performed on stage in Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, in the summer of 2002 and appeared as Viola, the lead role in Shakespeare in the Park's production of Twelfth Night with Jimmy Smits. Reviewing the production, Ben Brantley of The New York Times saluted Stiles as "the thinking teenager's movie goddess" who put him in mind of a "young Jane Fonda."



In the spring of 2004, she made her London stage debut opposite Aaron Eckhart in a revival of David Mamet's play Oleanna at the Garrick Theatre.

She reprised the role of Carol in a 2009 production, directed by Doug Hughes and co-starring Bill Pullman at the Mark Taper Forum. On June 30, 2009, it was announced that this production would be transferring to Broadway's John Golden Theatre, with previews beginning September 29 before an October 11 opening night.

Stiles was to play Jeannie in a production of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig directed by the playwright beginning in April 2011, but it has been postponed indefinitely.

Stiles appeared in the video for Cyndi Lauper's single, "Sally's Pigeons" in 1993. On March 17, 2001, Stiles hosted Saturday Night Live and, eight days later, she was a presenter at the 73rd Academy Awards. She returned to Saturday Night Live on May 5 appearing as then-President George W. Bush's daughter Jenna Bush in a skit that poked fun at the two first daughters being arrested for underage drinking. MTV profiled her in its Diary series in 2003, and she was Punk'd by Ashton Kutcher at a Washington DC museum in the spring of 2004.

Stiles made her writing and directorial debut with Elle magazine's short Raving starring Zooey Deschanel. It premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival.

In May 2010 Stiles was cast in a major role in the Showtime series Dexter and signed for 10 episodes. For this role Stiles received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress – Series, Miniseries or Television Film. as well as a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series.



In June 2012 the YouTube series “Blue” premiered which stars Stiles as the main role. She plays the role of a 29–30-year-old single mother with a 13-year-old son. Her salary doesn’t quite support her so to make ends meet she works nights as an escort. She must fight to protect her son from the collision of her complicated past and tenuous present.

Stiles is a graduate of Columbia University and holds a degree in English literature. She received a John Jay Award in 2010, the annual honorary award given to five alumni by the Columbia College Alumni Association for professional achievements.

Stiles has also worked for Habitat for Humanity, building housing in Costa Rica, and has worked with Amnesty International to raise awareness of the harsh conditions of immigration detention of unaccompanied juveniles; Marie Claire, in January 2004, featured Stiles's trip to see conditions at the Berks County Youth Center in Leesport, Pennsylvania.

She is an ex-vegan, occasionally eating red meat. She says she gave up veganism after she developed anemia and found it difficult to get proper nutrition while traveling. Stiles has described herself as a feminist and wrote on the subject in The Guardian.

She loves baseball and is an avid fan of the New York Mets, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch before their May 29, 2006 game. She is also an avid soccer fan and supports the New York Red Bulls.

"Bradley Cooper"



Bradley Charles Cooper (born January 5, 1975) is an American actor. He first gained recognition in the television shows Alias and Jack & Bobby. He later appeared in a supporting role in Wedding Crashers (2005), Yes Man (2008), and He's Just Not That into You (2009). He achieved fame with his roles in The Hangover (2009), The A-Team (2010), Limitless (2011), and Silver Linings Playbook (2012). His work in Silver Linings Playbook earned him his first Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. In 2011, People magazine named him the "Sexiest Man Alive".

Cooper was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and grew up in nearby Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. His mother, Gloria (née Campano), is Italian-American, and his father, Charles J. Cooper (died 2011 age 71), was Irish-American and worked as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch. He has one sister named Holly. Cooper was raised Catholic. While attending Germantown Academy, Cooper worked at the Philadelphia Daily News. After graduating from Germantown Academy in 1993,he attended Villanova University for his freshman year, then transferred to Georgetown University, from which he graduated with honors with a BA in English in 1997. Cooper became fluent in French at Georgetown and spent six months as an exchange student in Aix-en-Provence, France. Later, in 2000, he received an MFA in acting from Actors Studio Drama School at The New School in New York City.

Cooper began his professional acting career on the television series Sex and the City in 1999, and also served as a presenter for Globe Trekker. Cooper made his film debut in Wet Hot American Summer in 2001, before landing his role as Will Tippin in the successful television drama Alias. He returned twice to Alias as a guest star after leaving the show in 2003, and he also guest-starred on the short-lived TV series Miss Match in the same year. Cooper shot scenes for the 2002 psychological thriller Changing Lanes; the footage was removed from the finished film but is featured on the film's DVD and Blu-ray releases.

Cooper co-starred in the ABC Family film I Want to Marry Ryan Banks with Jason Priestley, and appeared as a regular guest star in the WB series Jack & Bobby. He played the popular villain Sack Lodge in the hit comedy Wedding Crashers and appeared in the film Failure to Launch as a friend of Matthew McConaughey's character. Cooper played the lead role in the Fox sitcom Kitchen Confidential, based on a memoir by chef Anthony Bourdain, which debuted in September 2005. Despite positive reviews for the series, Fox canceled it after four episodes.




In March 2006, Cooper starred in Three Days of Rain on Broadway with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater. Cooper also appeared on stage as Jake in the 2008 production of Theresa Rebeck's play The Understudy at the Williamstown Theatre Festival alongside Kristen Johnston.


In 2007, Cooper starred in Season 5 of Nip/Tuck as Aidan Stone, a television star on the fictional show Hearts 'N Scalpels. Cooper also starred in Yes Man with Jim Carrey. He also made an appearance in the movie The Rocker with Rainn Wilson in 2008.

On February 7, 2009, Cooper hosted Saturday Night Live with musical guest TV on the Radio. Cooper impersonated Christian Bale in a fake commercial for a DVD featuring celebrities yelling at movie crew members called, "No, Bruce! Let Me Finish! The Best of Celebrity Tirades." In 2009, Cooper starred in the films He's Just Not That into You, Case 39 and The Hangover. The Hangover was a financial success; it opened first at the box office in the United States and grossed over $467 million worldwide from a production budget of $35 million. In October 2009, Cooper received the Hollywood Comedy Award at the 13th Annual Hollywood Film Festival and Hollywood Awards. The success of The Hangover led to new opportunities for Cooper, but in an interview with Shave Magazine, Cooper said: "It’s the same. I mean, look, more doors have been opened for sure but it’s not like I sit back with a cigar on Monday morning and go through the scripts that have been offered."



In 2010, Cooper appeared in two films. He appeared in the ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day, directed by Garry Marshall, which also starred Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, and former Alias co-star Jennifer Garner, among others. The film was a commercial success, grossing over $215 million worldwide. He then played the role of Templeton "Faceman" Peck in the feature film version of The A-Team. He guest co-hosted WWE Raw on June 7, 2010 along with his The A-Team co-stars Sharlto Copley and Quinton Jackson.



In 2011, Cooper starred in the techno-thriller Limitless, based on the 2001 novel The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn, as well as the comedy sequel The Hangover Part II, which earned over $580 million at the worldwide box office. In September 2011, GQ UK presented Cooper with the "International Man of the Year" award. On November 16, 2011, People magazine named him Sexiest Man Alive.

In 2012, he appeared in the drama The Words, as well as David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook, an adaptation of Matthew Quick's serio-comic novel, with Robert De Niro and Jennifer Lawrence. In January 2012, plans were announced for Cooper to reunite with Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence for the Susanne Bier adaptation of Ron Rash's period novel Serena. He will also star in The Place Beyond the Pines, as an early 1990s police officer. In March 2012, Cooper and Warner Bros. entered into a two-year first look deal for his production company 22 & Indiana Pictures.

Cooper married actress Jennifer Esposito in late 2006. In May 2007, it was announced that Esposito had filed for divorce.

Cooper was in a long term relationship with actress Renee Zellweger. Cooper has also dated Zoe Saldana.

"Kisah Kakek Penjual Amplop"

Kisah nyata ini ditulis oleh seorang dosen ITB bernama Rinaldi Munir mengenai seorang kakek yang tidak gentar berjuang untuk hidup dengan mencari nafkah dari hasil berjualan amplop di Masjid Salman ITB. Jaman sekarang amplop bukanlah sesuatu yang sangat dibutuhkan, tidak jarang kakek ini tidak laku jualannya dan pulang dengan tangan hampa. Mari kita simak kisah “Kakek Penjual Amplop di ITB”.

Setiap menuju ke Masjid Salman ITB untuk shalat Jumat saya selalu melihat seorang Kakek tua yang duduk terpekur di depan dagangannya. Dia menjual kertas amplop yang sudah dibungkus di dalam plastik. Sepintas barang jualannya itu terasa “aneh” di antara pedagang lain yang memenuhi pasar kaget di seputaran Jalan Ganesha setiap hari Jumat. Pedagang di pasar kaget umumnya berjualan makanan, pakaian, DVD bajakan, barang mainan anak, sepatu dan barang-barang asesori lainnya. Tentu agak aneh dia “nyempil” sendiri menjual amplop, barang yang tidak terlalu dibutuhkan pada zaman yang serba elektronis seperti saat ini. Masa kejayaan pengiriman surat secara konvensional sudah berlalu, namun Kakek itu tetap menjual amplop. Mungkin Kakek itu tidak mengikuti perkembangan zaman, apalagi perkembangan teknologi informasi yang serba cepat dan instan, sehingga dia pikir masih ada orang yang membutuhkan amplop untuk berkirim surat.
Kehadiran Kakek tua dengan dagangannya yang tidak laku-laku itu menimbulkan rasa iba. Siapa sih yang mau membeli amplopnya itu? Tidak satupun orang yang lewat menuju masjid tertarik untuk membelinya. Lalu lalang orang yang bergegas menuju masjid Salman seolah tidak mempedulikan kehadiran Kakek tua itu.
Kemarin ketika hendak shalat Jumat di Salman saya melihat Kakek tua itu lagi sedang duduk terpekur. Saya sudah berjanji akan membeli amplopnya itu usai shalat, meskipun sebenarnya saya tidak terlalu membutuhkan benda tersebut. Yach, sekedar ingin membantu Kakek itu melariskan dagangannya. Seusai shalat Jumat dan hendak kembali ke kantor, saya menghampiri Kakek tadi. Saya tanya berapa harga amplopnya dalam satu bungkus plastik itu. “Seribu”, jawabnya dengan suara lirih. Oh Tuhan, harga sebungkus amplop yang isinnya sepuluh lembar itu hanya seribu rupiah? Uang sebesar itu hanya cukup untuk membeli dua gorengan bala-bala pada pedagang gorengan di dekatnya. Uang seribu rupiah yang tidak terlalu berarti bagi kita, tetapi bagi Kakek tua itu sangatlah berarti. Saya tercekat dan berusaha menahan air mata keharuan mendengar harga yang sangat murah itu. “Saya beli ya pak, sepuluh bungkus”, kata saya.
Kakek itu terlihat gembira karena saya membeli amplopnya dalam jumlah banyak. Dia memasukkan sepuluh bungkus amplop yang isinya sepuluh lembar per bungkusnya ke dalam bekas kotak amplop. Tangannya terlihat bergetar ketika memasukkan bungkusan amplop ke dalam kotak.
Saya bertanya kembali kenapa dia menjual amplop semurah itu. Padahal kalau kita membeli amplop di warung tidak mungkin dapat seratus rupiah satu. Dengan uang seribu mungkin hanya dapat lima buah amplop. Kakek itu menunjukkan kepada saya lembar kwitansi pembelian amplop di toko grosir. Tertulis di kwitansi itu nota pembelian 10 bungkus amplop surat senilai Rp7500. “Kakek cuma ambil sedikit”, lirihnya. Jadi, dia hanya mengambil keuntungan Rp250 untuk satu bungkus amplop yang isinya 10 lembar itu. Saya jadi terharu mendengar jawaban jujur si Kakek tua. Jika pedagang nakal ‘menipu’ harga dengan menaikkan harga jual sehingga keuntungan berlipat-lipat, Kakek tua itu hanya mengambil keuntungan yang tidak seberapa. Andaipun terjual sepuluh bungkus amplop saja keuntungannya tidak sampai untuk membeli nasi bungkus di pinggir jalan. Siapalah orang yang mau membeli amplop banyak-banyak pada zaman sekarang? Dalam sehari belum tentu laku sepuluh bungkus saja, apalagi untuk dua puluh bungkus amplop agar dapat membeli nasi.

Setelah selesai saya bayar Rp10.000 untuk sepuluh bungkus amplop, saya kembali menuju kantor. Tidak lupa saya selipkan sedikit uang lebih buat Kakek tua itu untuk membeli makan siang. Si Kakek tua menerima uang itu dengan tangan bergetar sambil mengucapkan terima kasih dengan suara hampir menangis. Saya segera bergegas pergi meninggalkannya karena mata ini sudah tidak tahan untuk meluruhkan air mata. Sambil berjalan saya teringat status seorang teman di fesbuk yang bunyinya begini: “Kakek-Kakek tua menjajakan barang dagangan yang tak laku-laku, ibu-ibu tua yang duduk tepekur di depan warungnya yang selalu sepi. Carilah alasan-alasan untuk membeli barang-barang dari mereka, meski kita tidak membutuhkannya saat ini. Jangan selalu beli barang di mal-mal dan toko-toko yang nyaman dan lengkap….”.
Si Kakek tua penjual amplop adalah salah satu dari mereka, yaitu para pedagang kaki lima yang barangnya tidak laku-laku. Cara paling mudah dan sederhana untuk membantu mereka adalah bukan memberi mereka uang, tetapi belilah jualan mereka atau pakailah jasa mereka. Meskipun barang-barang yang dijual oleh mereka sedikit lebih mahal daripada harga di mal dan toko, tetapi dengan membeli dagangan mereka insya Allah lebih banyak barokahnya, karena secara tidak langsung kita telah membantu kelangsungan usaha dan hidup mereka.
Dalam pandangan saya Kakek tua itu lebih terhormat daripada pengemis yang berkeliaran di masjid Salman, meminta-minta kepada orang yang lewat. Para pengemis itu mengerahkan anak-anak untuk memancing iba para pejalan kaki. Tetapi si Kakek tua tidak mau mengemis, ia tetap kukuh berjualan amplop yang keuntungannya tidak seberapa itu.
Di kantor saya amati lagi bungkusan amplop yang saya beli dari si Kakek tua tadi. Mungkin benar saya tidak terlalu membutuhkan amplop surat itu saat ini, tetapi uang sepuluh ribu yang saya keluarkan tadi sangat dibutuhkan si Kakek tua.
Kotak amplop yang berisi 10 bungkus amplop tadi saya simpan di sudut meja kerja. Siapa tahu nanti saya akan memerlukannya. Mungkin pada hari Jumat pekan-pekan selanjutnya saya akan melihat si Kakek tua berjualan kembali di sana, duduk melamun di depan dagangannya yang tak laku-laku.
Mari kita bersyukur telah diberikan kemampuan dan nikmat yang lebih daripada kakek ini. Tentu saja syukur ini akan jadi sekedar basa-basi bila tanpa tindakan nyata. Mari kita bersedekah lebih banyak kepada orang-orang yang diberikan kemampuan ekonomi lemah. Allah akan membalas setiap sedekah kita, amiin.

"7 Tips Memilih BH atau Bra Yang Sehat"

Payudara adalah bagian tubuh yang lembut dan sensitif karena tidak mengandung massa otot. Penggunaan BH atau bra yang kurang tepat dapat menyebabkan kerusakan permanen pada payudara. Bila BH Anda terlalu ketat, payudara Anda akan tertekan sehingga menghalangi sirkulasi darah dan menyebabkan iritasi. Bila BH Anda terlalu longgar, payudara Anda akan kendor/menggantung karena kurang ditopang. Oleh karena itu, penting sekali untuk menggunakan BH yang tepat setiap hari.
Berikut adalah tips memilih BH yang tepat untuk Anda:

  1. Usahakan untuk mencoba/mengepaskan BH sebelum Anda membeli. BH yang pas akan menahan payudara Anda dengan baik tetapi tidak menekan sehingga meninggalkan bekas di kulit pundak maupun punggung Anda. Jangan malu atau ragu untuk mencoba BH sebelum membeli dan jangan mengandalkan informasi dari pramuniaga. Andalah yang paling bisa merasakan mana BH yang paling sesuai dengan tubuh Anda. Jangan membeli BH hanya dengan melihat-lihat kecuali Anda telah menggunakan merek, ukuran dan tipe yang sama sebelumnya. Bila Anda tidak diizinkan mencoba BH, cari toko lain yang mengizinkan Anda melakukannya.
  2. Bila ukuran payudara Anda membesar sebelum atau selama menstruasi, sebaiknya tidak membeli BH pada masa-masa tersebut karena Anda akan membeli BH dengan ukuran terlalu besar. Anda mungkin perlu memiliki BH khusus untuk masa-masa tersebut (dan juga di saat lain ketika payudara membesar, misalnya ketika hamil dan menyusui).
  3. Ukuran BH ditunjukkan dalam lingkar tubuh bagian dada dan besarnya payudara. Ukuran BH dalam lingkar dada dinyatakan dalam angka, misalnya 32, 34, 36 (AS), atau 70, 75, 80 (Eropa/Internasional). Ukuran besarnya payudara dinyatakan dalam huruf, yaitu A, B, C, dst. Ketahuilah pasangan ukuran mana yang tepat dengan tubuh Anda. Bila ukuran payudara Anda berbeda antara yang kanan dan kiri, pilihlah ukuran payudara yang lebih besar sebagai patokan.
  4. Pilihlah BH dari bahan katun atau serat mikro karena lebih nyaman untuk kegiatan sehari-hari. Bahan ini mengikuti kontur tubuh dan berpori-pori sehingga kulit Anda bisa bernafas leluasa. Hindari membeli BH yang sudah kedaluwarsa sehingga tidak lagi lentur saat dipakai, meskipun dijual dengan harga diskon atau obral.
  5. Pilihlah pengikat/tali BH yang elastis karena lebih memberikan kenyamanan dan fleksibilitas bila Anda menyesuaikannya dengan tepat. Namun, jangan menggunakan tali BH dari bahan yang terlalu lentur seperti lycra, spandex, dll karena kurang memberikan daya topang bila payudara Anda cukup besar.
  6. Untuk mangkuk BH, Anda boleh memilih yang berbusa atau tanpa busa, asalkan terasa nyaman. Mangkuk BH tanpa busa terasa lebih “mencengkeram”, namun mungkin sedikit kurang nyaman dibandingkan yang berbusa. Anda bisa berganti-ganti di antara kedua tipe sesuai aktivitas dan preferensi Anda.
  7. Gunakanlah BH khusus saat berolah raga. Ada banyak jenis BH khusus olah raga, namun semuanya memiliki fungsi khusus yaitu mengurangi goyangan payudara tanpa membuatnya tertekan. Untuk itu, BH khusus olah raga biasanya tidak memiliki kerangka dan bertali besar yang terikat kuat untuk memberikan dukungan maksimal. Tali BH mungkin bersilangan di punggung (berbentuk X atau Y) untuk memberikan keleluasaan gerak dan bahan yang dipakai biasanya berpori-pori sehingga dapat menyerap dan mengeringkan keringat. Ketika memilih BH khusus olah raga, pastikan juga Anda telah mengepaskannya dengan tubuh Anda. Cobalah BH dengan melakukan gerakan-gerakan tertentu untuk mengetahui apakah Anda akan nyaman mengenakannya saat berolah raga.
