YOU Helped Us Raise $10K For NEDA!

WE LOVE THE SWIM YOU’RE IN!

Thanks to you, we reached our initial goal and we’ve raised $10,000 for the National Eating Disorders Association! Since March 20th, we’ve seen more than 10,000 of your amazing unretouched swim photos on social. And thanks to you, we’re still going! Post your unretouched swim photos with #AerieREAL and we’ll donate $1 (now up to $15K!) to NEDA.

Check out some of the 10,000 #AerieREAL girls who love the swim they’re in!

 

As excited as I was for my recent deliveries from @aerie I couldn't help but feel nervous as all heck about being photographed in a … you guessed it.. a 👙. I have always had curves and I have always argued with them. Some days it was, could you turn more hourglass? Other days it was, could just plain not exist? Needless to say my body was true to itself even when I felt the pressure to look otherwise. I'm challenging myself this year to not let a social standard dictate my size, shape, or skin tone. I'm naturally pale AF y'all and I can't keep buying self tanner (#sorryjergens), I've got freckles everywhere, and my size (for the most part) is consistently all about that curve. My size is mine. And you know what? In my book that's pretty freaking beautiful 🙋🏼😘🙏🌮 #everyBODYisbeautiful #aeriereal

Guys, this is two days in a row that I haven't dreaded looking at my body! This is HUGE! So yes I will show my body proudly, I work so hard to learn to love myself. This isn't for anyone else this is for ME. Happy Sunday, I hope you all feel beautiful today. You don't have to be beautiful like her, you can be beautiful like YOU! Love your body, every curve, bump, roll, mark, it makes you YOU and no one on this earth has that power. Not going to lie I used to be and still am sometimes terrified of summer time. Bikinis, showing skin, knowing damn well I haven't prepared (why prepare wtf) for summer. NEWS FLASH: you don't have to ever prepare for any season, any clothing, any event. Screw dieting, screw torturing yourself to fit into a certain type of clothing because you're scared you won't look like everyone else. You won't ever look like anyone else and that's 100% okay because you are you and they are them and both are equally beautiful. No body shaming. No beauty standards. Build up others, don't tear them down. 💪🏽🌸 • • • #edrecovery #recovery #BDD #stopbodyshaming #fatphobia #bopo #bopowarrior #unretouched #aeriereal #neda #aerie #nowrongwaytohaveabody #everybodyisbeauitful #everybuttisbeautiful #myflawsarefierce #realbodies #allbodiesarerealbodies #cellulitesaturday #embracethesquish
