Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

When your wedding day rolls around, having the right undergarments will make a world of difference. Whether you need strapless, backless or a little push up, our bra accessories have got you covered. Looking for a seamless finish? Our Outta-Sight collection is tagless and smooth for zero undie lines.

Megan from The Things She Sees gave us a sneak peek into her big day and talks the importance of choosing the right undergarments.

Meet Megan:
Megan is a lover of all things beautiful: style, home design, projects, but most importantly beautiful and meaningful lives. She is the Founder and Editor of The Things She Sees, a lifestyle blog that covers everything from date night outfits to home improvement projects, all the while aiming to inspire others to also see the beauty in their lives!

Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

“I wish I could say that everything went smoothly when it came to choosing my dress, but it definitely did NOT. I had some major fit issues as my upper body doesn’t quite match in size with my lower body (you know what I’m sayin’?!) and while I’m not complaining, it made for some tough fittings! The Bare Bra Pushup was a lifesaver on my wedding day to help boost me up top but also last me throughout my honeymoon for all of my low-back dresses.

Aerie undies have been my favorite for years for the simple fact that they’re undoubtedly the most comfortable! Most brides gravitate towards everything WHITE when it comes to the countless parties, showers and events you have during your special time so a comfy nude no-show panty is a must, like the Outta-Sight Thong!”

“I wish I could go back and celebrate our big day over and over again! A year and a half’s work of saving, planning and organizing culminated in the most beautiful ceremony full of intimate details with my new husband. The best part? Having an epic dance party with everyone until last call!”

How To Make Avocado Toast 3 Ways

Have you jumped on the avocado toast train yet? If not, today’s CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls) post will bring you up to speed on this amazing snack!

How To Make Avocado Toast 3 Ways with Aerie

Avocados are incredible nutrition. They provide more potassium than a banana and 15 grams of healthy fats like oleic acid, which has been linked to reduced inflammation and beneficial effects on the genes that fight cancer. The great thing about avocados is they are so versatile—you can add them to smoothies, throw them on tacos for dinner, eat them plain out of a bowl or even add them to desserts. We are avocado obsessed, and after trying these recipes for Avocado Toast, you will be too! Avocado toast is a quick and easy way to get a healthy and filling breakfast or snack. All of these recipes take less than 5 minutes to make and will keep you full and energized for hours!

How to Style a Jumpsuit

Lightweight jumpsuits are a must for the summer. With their soft woven fabric and cinched silhouette, they’re both effortless and chic.

Andrea from Belair Beautiful paired our Racerback Jumpsuit with the Brooke Strappy Back Pushup Bra for a stroll around town.

How to Style a Jumpsuit

Meet Andrea:
“I started Belair Beautiful as my diary, my fashion book, my make up tips, my life and love advice, but most of all my art and my truth.”

How to Style a Jumpsuit

What Inspired Andrea’s Look:
“It’s officially Summer in Miami and I’m not gonna lie and say that I’ve been taking that too well. It has been so close to the 100’s that most days I’m just content by staying home, working on the computer with air conditioning. When I do leave the house, I make sure that I am comfortable and most importantly, that I am wearing a breathable and light material. Aerie was awesome enough to send me this gorgeous Racerback Jumpsuit which ended up being perfect for a walk around town. I headed over a local museum and roamed around the streets of downtown Miami, all while in this chic and comfortable outfit!”

“When you have a top that is bound to show your bra and you can’t go braless, what better way to pair it than with a really cute bra/bralette? It’s a perfect way to add a bit of color without being too loud. I added the Aerie Brooke Strappy Back Pushup Bra.

Kick Off Summer with Aerie Swim

When summer officially hits, there’s no better way to celebrate than to grab your favorite Aerie Swim and head to the nearest pool. Blogger besties Jessica from My Style Vita and Cathy from Poor Little It Girl styled their go-to suits on a recent trip to South Beach.

What Inspired Jessica and Cathy’s Look:
“For our recent trip to Miami, Jessica and myself knew we wanted swimsuit that was bold, and still stylish, as we headed to the beach on our mini vacation. The open back on my one-piece suit was fun and unexpected and left me feeling not too covered up while in the sun! Jessica’s pink romper and fun tropical print bikini fit right in with the fun style of South Beach!”

5 Outdoor Workouts

Bring on the sun and humidity because it’s finally summer! (YAY!) This summer is all about finding what makes you happy and healthy, and today’s CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls) post rounds up five of our favorite fun outdoor summer workouts. So throw on your favorite gear, gather your friends and get movin’!

Hiking

Find your inner mountain girl and head out to your local park. Parks across the U.S. have trails that vary in length and difficulty, so find a course that matches your fitness level. When you go, make sure to pack the necessary gear for the amount of time you plan to spend hiking, including snacks, sunscreen and most importantly, water.

Paddle Boarding 

you’re looking for a workout to tone your entire body, including your abs, this is the one for you. Stand-up paddle boarding requires you to use a combination of balance and strength. Core muscles are in constant use to maintain your balance, and leg and arm muscles are used to propel yourself forward. It’s low impact, but it’ll torch hundreds of calories per hour. Don’t worry if you’ve never boarded before. Classes are often offered at different levels to ensure that everyone is comfortable and safe on his or her board.

5K, 10K, ANY-K Run

Summer is the time that runners come out to play. Yes, many runners prefer cooler spring and fall months, but summer is when fun runs are at their height. Not all races have to be done for PRs (personal records), and in the warmer summer months, expecting to beat your previous mile times during every race would be silly. It’s sometimes just too hot. Challenge yourself to let go of the technical details and enjoy a fun run!

5 Outdoor Workouts

Outdoor Yoga, Pilates, Barre

Discover your “om” in nature. Yoga, pilates and barre studios love to take advantage of the great weather by hosting classes in local parks or—if you’re lucky—beaches. You’d be surprised what a little sunrise yoga can do to start your day!

5 Outdoor Workouts

Cycling

You’ve done indoor spinning classes. You’ve gone on scenic bike rides. Now it’s time to kick it up a notch. Grab your bike and a group of friends and head out for a fun, sweaty day in the sun. Pick a trail near you or plan a route prior to leaving, so you know exactly how far you plan to be riding that day and pack fuel (water, snacks, etc.) accordingly.

Do you have a trail that you love or a favorite outdoor program in your city? Share it with us! We’re always looking for new workouts, and with more than 5,000 CHAARG girls around the country, you may just help a girl find her new favorite workout spot.
