Jill Krebs had just run her personal best, but her bra had slipped out of the strict boundaries governing the nation's high school runners.The South Carroll High School cross-country runner was disqualified because her pink running bra, mostly concealed by her black jersey, showed at some time or another.Routine, said the man who made the call, John Grim, the Linganore High School cross-country coach who was the meet director Oct. 18. "We followed [the rule book] chapter and verse, the way we always do. Any visible undergarments, according to the book, have to match if two or more people wear them, whether it's T-shirts, tights, boxer shorts on boys."

Here are famous moments from the "herstory" of bras, as culled from Stephanie Pedersen's book, Bra: A Thousand Years of Style, Support and Seduction: Catherine de Medici may be best known for her finesse at concocting and administering poisons. Along that vein, she is credited - if that's the word - for popularizing the corset as de rigueur daily wear in the mid-16th century. As the young bride of Henry II of France, de Medici was proud of her slender figure, and she famously declared a ban on thick waists at court.

National draft analysts have released a wave of new mock drafts after the NFL scouting combine wrapped up last week, but we continue to see many of the same names -- especially Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans and tight end Eric Ebron -- linked to the Ravens at pick No. 17 with few exceptions. Baltimore Sun reporter Matt Vensel takes a look at which prospects are being "mocked" to the Ravens: Dane Brugler, CBS Sports: Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M . “The Ravens have deep threats at receiver with Torrey Smith, Jacoby Jones and Marlon Brown, but could use a larger, more physical talent for Joe Flacco to target,” Brugler wrote.

ACCORDING TO an article from the PR Newswire, American women spend close to $3 billion buying more than 300 million bras, but most of the bras bought are misfits. Women's Health Matters Newsletter states that eight of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra. It's no wonder that women get bras that don't fit properly. One local man who had channel-surfed to a daytime television show on which guests were discussing bra sizing declared that it sounded like a science. Guides on how to measure for a proper fit abound, adding to the confusion.

Boston. -- The straw feminist has made another cameo appearance. She is everywhere now, stalks of wheat sticking out her militant clothing. She is starring in the aftermath of the trial that found Lorena Bobbitt innocent by virtue of temporary insanity.''This is a feminist dream come true,'' grumbled one man-in-the-street as he conjured her up for the television viewers, ''It's open season on men.''''What you're doing is licensing the feminists to come and slice our [penises] off,'' added William Margold, a longtime porno star, in the Washington Post.

Close your eyes and think "fossil." What did you see -- images of prehistoric remains or hip clothing? If Fossil -- formerly just a watch and accessory company -- has its way, the latter will soon outshadow the former. The company has launched a modern clothing line described by spokeswoman Jennifer Pucci as "the love child" of two well-known labels. "Fossil has got all the basics of the Gap," she explains, "along with the punch that Diesel [clothing] gives you." That means the line has both button-down styles and funky fabrics like faux suede.

In the 1850s, suffragists advocated the end of the restrictive corset. In the late 1960s, the bra became a symbol of female bondage, and went up in flames.Then came the 1990s, and Madonna rekindled the issue when she churned across stage in her Jean-Paul Gaultier bustier, defying anyone to see the bra as a symbol of oppression.Today, while some may still call for the overthrow of a lingerie dress-code, designer Donna Karan -- who is launching a line of intimate wear in the fall -- says the renewed popularity of intimate fashion "allows a woman to be free to be a woman."

Somewhere, a halfway decent adaptation of the 1983 hit movie “Flashdance” is fighting to break away from the amiable, strongly performed mess of a show that has arrived at the Hippodrome. Instead, we get an everything-plus-the-kitchen-sink mishmash. It's partly a traditional musical, with at least the thread of a plot - a woman who welds by day but would rather dance - and new songs that advance the storyline, more or less. It's partly a jukebox musical, with emphasis on the vintage songs that helped make the film so popular.

Designers at the New York spring collections are showing visible panty lines. It's all part of fashion's backward movement of the moment. Last year it was thongs and G-strings, but having exposed supermodel backsides to the glare of paparazzi flash, the fashion-jaded are looking elsewhere for excitement.It's to the '50s and your mother's underwear, when respectable girls had never even heard of bikinis and their bottoms were all covered up by drawers with cute lolly and spanky names.That's the new contour, the new hot pants are rounded to cut in at the thigh.
