Most of us Aerie girls have at least one multi-way bra in our bra wardrobe…but are we using it to its fullest potential? Our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman (@ILoveAGood), answers your latest #AskJenny question on how multi-ways can be so much more than strapless, below!
Q: I know there are other ways you can wear Aerie’s convertible bras besides just strapless – but I’m lost! What exactly are the different ways to wear a multi-way bra?
A: The great thing about having a multi-way bra in your closet is that it is so versatile! You do not need a bra for each outfit, you just need a great do-it-all bra. Aerie offers several multi-way bras in both pushup and lightly lined…functioning as 6+ bras in one!
My personal favorite is the Mia Multi-Way pushup bra…it adds just the right amount of lift that’s perfect with everything from your strappy tanks to most formal dresses. A great everyday option is our Audrey Multi-Way bra for you lightly lined girls!
If you only have budget for one multi-way bra, I always suggest nude for maximum versatility.
The animation below gives a step-by-step guide for all the different ways to wear your favorite multi-way (here, it’s the Mia Vintage Lace Multi-Way pushup bra). With so many ways to wear, this bra can really go the distance – and stretch your dollar!
So, Aerie girls, don’t let the straps on your newest multi-way purchase collect dust in your drawer! Use them to their full potential and you’ll see what a versatile must-have a multi-way bra is in your wardrobe. They are truly the best investment bras ever!

Bras and best friends have a lot of similarities. We’re serious…think about it! You depend on them to keep your outfit in check. You take care of them! They provide support when you need it. Okay, so maybe the analogy ends there…but you get the point.
This season we’re focusing on the basics that every girl needs to complete her bra wardrobe from Multi-Way and Strapless Bras to Lightly Lined or a va-va voom Pushup! The Go-To Girls include Bridget, Charley, and Blakely…all priced at $20! Read on below to learn a little bit more about each.
Crystal and Rachelle are wearing our newest bra, Charley! Perfect under v’s and scoops, Charley is a plunge bra with just enough pushup to add a subtle lift. In the center (or the gore) of the bra, there is a key ring that let’s the cups swivel with your body. This works seamlessly with the j-hook in the back for when you want to convert her into a racerback!
Blakely is back with new pop color lace details as your go-to lightly lined bra. Her soft cotton cups offer demi coverage and is perfect to pair with your favorite tee. What we love? Her neon vintage lace side wings. Go ahead, show her off under your summer tanks!
Allison and Amber are rocking our Bridget Bra! Bridget is always there for you when you need a little lift! You’ll love her soft, smooth microfiber and lace trim design. She’s offers demi coverage for your lower cut tops.
