The lazy, hazy days of summer are upon us. It’s time to embrace the lightweight and breathable summer lingerie.


Wearing the right lingerie is very important to deal with tricky summer silhouettes. Here are some wardrobe essentials this season to keep you cool while you shelter at home by Siddharth Grover, Director, Groversons Paris Beauty.

Nothing beats cotton

Nothing signals the arrival of summer, like cotton. With the breathability factor rocketing sky-high, the world hasn’t found a better replacement for cotton. Yes, the easy knits and moisture-absorbing nature of this fabric is what makes it a hit with not just lingerie but almost any type of summer clothing.

Cotton bras and panties, apart from being absolutely fuss-free, help you stay hygienic all day long, leaving no room for rashes. It naturally allows your skin to breathe and does not trap heat as other fabrics do. It is ideal for hot days when you know you’re going to sweat as cotton doesn’t retain odor. You definitely can’t go wrong with cotton panties, shorts, singlets and bras in summer.

Lighter shades are here to stay

Something we all are well aware of yet forget light-shaded clothing reflects heat, whereas the dark colours absorb it, causing a lot of perspiration. The same logic applies to your lingerie as well, pastel-shaded bras and panties are greatly recommended to deal with the beaming heat compared to bold hues.

Strapless refresh

We’d never miss to mention how important strapless bras are in summer – especially ones that flatter you and stay in place. They are perfect for all your skimpier summer outfits and give you the freedom to make your own summer fashion statement. Strapless bras will also help you get rid of digging straps which cause rashes due to the hot and sweaty season.

Plunge bras

Plunge bras are designed for wearing underneath outfits with low necklines. These are perfect for your low neck T-shirts or even ethnic wear. It is a bra with a deep V-neckline ensuring that there is no show of your innerwear. It lifts your bosom upwards and gives a perfect shape in the most natural way. So now you can wear your deep neck outfits with full confidence.

Go sporty

Sports bras are sturdier than your typical bras and provide maximum support to your breasts during physical exercise. During this summer time, it is the best option to deal with sweat as most of them are made from moisture wicking fabric. It will stay drier as compared to most of your fashion bras and you can pair it as a fashion statement under your mesh tops. (IANS)

Twitter has confirmed that its algorithms amplify right-leaning political content.

By Nikhila Natarajan

In a continuing study on the effects of machine learning (ML) on public conversation, Twitter has confirmed that its algorithms amplify right-leaning political content. "In six out of seven countries - all but Germany - tweets posted by accounts from the political right receive more algorithmic amplification than the political left when studied as a group," Twitter blogged.

"Right-leaning news outlets, as defined by the independent organisations, see greater algorithmic amplification on Twitter compared to left-leaning news outlets." Since 2016, Twitter users are able to choose between viewing algorithmically ordered tweets first in their home timeline or viewing the most recent tweets in reverse chronological order.

"An algorithmic home timeline displays a stream of tweets from accounts we have chosen to follow on Twitter, as well as recommendations of other content Twitter thinks we might be interested in based on accounts we interact with frequently, tweets we engage with, and more. "As a result, what we see on our timeline is a function of how we interact with Twitter's algorithmic system, as well as how the system is designed."

The new research is based on tweets of elected officials of House of Commons members in Canada, the French National Assembly, the German Bundestag, House of Representatives in Japan, Congress of Deputies of Spain, House of Commons in the UK, and official and personal accounts of House of Representatives and Senate members in the US, as well as news outlets, from April 1 to August 15, 2020.

Snapdeal co-founder and COO Rohit Bansal on Friday lauded a man who facilitated 64 registrations for the vaccine on the CoWin portal.

Even as India celebrates reaching a milestone of 100 crore Covid vaccine doses, Snapdeal co-founder and COO Rohit Bansal on Friday lauded a man who facilitated 64 registrations for the vaccine on the CoWin portal. In a video shared on his Facebook and Twitter page, Bansal hailed Sonu Kumar as a "citizen celebrity".

Bansal said that Kumar not only helped "just co-workers and family but complete strangers too. With patience, empathy and uncanny jugaad". He added that Kumar joined him "many moons ago" and completed his open school from a parking lot.

"Education has helped this wonderful man enable others to get India back on track. Bravo! The CoWin portal on Thursday mentioned that a total of 100 crore vaccine doses has been administered so far to the eligible population under the vaccination drive in India, nine months after the nationwide inoculation programme was started to protect the people against Covid-19.

"It's a cause of significant celebration and happiness," Bansal said in the video. He said that while people just help a few around them, Kumar "bridged the digital gap" for 64 people, who were finding it difficult to register themselves online on the vaccine portal. Kumar said he doesn't feel that he has contributed much towards the 100 crore vaccine dose count. "I have been able to help only 64 people, if I was able to help more I would have been happier."
