How to use bust in a sentence?

  1. Paper Magazine Abby Schreiber:

    I think it’s up to the individual woman what she wants to wear or not wear, and although, yes, there have been recent trends that emphasize more modest dressing, if a woman wants to show skin, that’s up to her and she should n’t be made to feel embarrassed or ashamed of her choices or be... stereotyped in any way because of them. Modeling agency Maggie, Inc. President Robert Casey responded to the backlash Vogue received on social media. President Robert Casey said the no bust trend is not offensive or body shaming.

  2. Windie Lazenko:

    I speak their language from the get-go, i'm not law enforcement. I'm not out there to bust them. They don't have to play the game with me. They're going to respect me and I'm going to respect them. ... I know what it is to be out there.

  3. Recy Taylor:

    And then again, I get to thinking – I said, Lord, they could’ve killed me anyway. They was talking about killing me, but they could’ve killed me with their gun. They could’ve taken their gun and bust my brains out, but the Lord is just with me that night.

  4. Sue Mi Terry:

    President Moon has to really deliver in terms of making President Donald Trump feel like this summit isn't going to go bust, no one wants to walk into a meeting that's going to fail.

  5. Paul Chavez:

    We're happy that the bust is there.
