Bodysuits Are Not the Enemy, But Here are Some Common Complaints
RIley Brennan

Before the trend of bodysuits reemerged (the first were worn in the 1950's!), I, and many other girls across the world, were relieved from our consistent duty of having to make the decision between tucking our shirt into our pants/skirts, or allowing our shirts to rumble up in the space between our belts/waistline and torso (this problem is magnified when the bottoms are high waisted).

Before bodysuits became popular again, I felt hopeless when it came to ensembling an outfit with a belt because of such decisions. Because often, my shirts were too long not to tuck in, as they would become too lumpy or cover the belt I was wearing, creating a rather bulky look, I would have to resort to tucking the extra cloth into my pants/skirt, where the lumps of my shirt, could still be seen. Either way, I would have to spend the majority of the day readjusting my shirt, pulling it down or up, or having to retuck the cloth into my waistline.

But, then bodysuits came along, creeping into the lives of girls everywhere, infiltrating our Instagram feeds and nearby stores. Finally, the answer to my fashion-centered prayers! They fit perfectly under my pants and stayed in place all day. I felt relief at last! Good-bye, fashion hell! And they seemed to be the perfect solution of many others, as they took clothing stores by storm, earning their own section on many online clothing websites, and becoming a staple in many girls' closets.

However, every once and a while I'll be going through my day, and here someone complains about the bodysuit they're wearing, or be online and come across someone trashing bodysuits in general. Which seems completely ridiculous, because as I've previously stated, they answered many of my fashion qualms. So, I am in defense of bodysuits, to refute three of the most common complaints regarding them.

They're Uncomfortable.

And spending all day tucking in your shirt that WILL NOT stop riding up is? And if you find the bodysuits are too small or too big, try a different size!

It's so hard to pee.

Simply unbutton it and you're good to go! A quite simple process, and a very small price to pay for all the benefits!

Sometimes the indent of my bodysuit show through my bottoms.

Maybe you might be able to see the outline of a bodysuit when wearing really tight pants, but you can still see it way less than if you had tucked a shirt into your pants instead!

Bodysuits give a clean, well-fitted look that not only saves your whole look but prevents you from spending your whole day readjusting your ill-equipped ill-fitting shirt!

Where To Find The Best Coffee Drinks In America, According To A Survey

Here's the coffee shop where you should get your morning brew.

187612

Coffee, for billions of people, is one of the only things that can get us out of bed (after hitting snooze a time or two), especially in 2020. Because, if we're being honest, is there anything that beats a quality cup of coffee on those mornings when all we wanted to do is roll over and go back to sleep? The answer is no. And if you're headed to a coffee shop to pick up your caffeinated beverage, you don't want to sleep on the best coffee drinks in America.

According to LiveShopper Sassie's Coffee Project survey, when it comes to chain coffee shops, there are definitely preferred spots you'll want to hit up for your go-to order — whether you order the classic, frozen, or flavored coffee, an espresso, tea, or other. To figure out the hot spots, 1,000 coffee drinkers across the United States took to LiveShopper's mobile app, PrestoShopper, to answer various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).

For me, chai isn't just what I drink — it's a core part of who I am. Sure, I'll switch it up every now and then with a cup of English Breakfast, Earl Grey, rose, or Darjeeling, but I always come back to chai.

Nearly every tea lover has one tea they repeatedly drink and go back to, whether it's a daily morning ritual or an afternoon pick-me-up. One of my good friends has almost eight cups of jasmine tea every single day — she drinks more tea than water, actually.

Going To College During COVID-19 Has Caused Some INTENSE Burnout, And It's Not Just Me

Graduation doesn't even feel like the light at the end of the tunnel anymore.

1145

When my college announced that we would be having the fall 2020 semester on-campus, I was pretty excited. After six months of living at home with my parents with nothing to do, my study abroad trip in May canceled, and my 21st birthday plans down the drain, going back to campus meant that I would regain some of my individuality and see my friends again. But since we've returned, it has not been as fun as I had hoped my senior year of college would be.

When it comes to coffee, everyone has different criteria for what goes into their "perfect cup." Some caffeine lovers, though, are extra particular when it comes to their beloved beverage. One survey found that the state you're from (or the one you live in now) may play a part in determining how much of a coffee snob you actually are.

LiveShopper Sassie, the company behind this Coffee Project survey, received input from 1,000 coffee drinkers via their mobile app, PrestoShopper, to ask various questions about their coffee drinking habits and preferences. In return, these survey respondents got money back for their coffee — something any user who downloads the app can do as well (yes, even you).
