Real Talk with Jenny Altman – The Spring Dress Dilemma

Real Talk with Jenny Altman – The Spring Dress Dilemma

With spring just around the corner, we have received a few questions about which of our bras work best for your spring dresses. Whether you are packing for a vacation or need a great go-to for a date night out, Jenny Altman, Aerie’s style and fit expert, has the best picks for any occasion.   

“The answer to making Spring Break packing a breeze is by packing items that multi-task. I love bras that do double (or triple) duty! These are serious investment pieces that don’t cost a lot, yet work for so many things! You don’t need to pack a bra for each and every look, so find ones that multi-task.

Strapless dresses need a great strapless bra. The Maddie Multi-way Pushup Bra is a strapless to have in your go-to bra wardrobe. This bra works as a strapless with push up and goes under everything. Smooth cups work under tees and sheer tops. The lace sides and back are also pretty if the bra does show. I also love the plunge front which makes this very versatile, even under low cut tops or dresses. Nude is a must have for everyone, and black is a great secondary color to pack in your bags.”

Real Talk with Jenny Altman - The Spring Dress Dilemma

Maddie Multi-way Pushup Bra

“For backless dresses, you need a backless, strapless bra and we have the perfect one! The Lace Bare Bra is pretty and super-functional when your basic strapless just won’t do. This bra is a beautiful lace, pushup bra that supports with wire and sticks like you won’t believe. As long as you aren’t wearing powder or lotion near the bra area, this adhesive is amazing and stays up all day. The wings on the side are clear, giving side support, but leaves your back totally bra-less, the solution piece for your backless dresses or serious low-back tops.”

Real Talk with Jenny Altman - The Spring Dress Dilemma

Lace Bare Bra

“Halter dresses and tops work well with strapless bras, but if you need (or prefer) lift and support, a bra with a halter strap is the best option. Our multi-way bras convert from strapless to halter easily and quickly. The Mia Multi-Way Pushup Bra has amazing pushup with removable air pads. The two sets of straps make this plunge front bra very versatile, and convert to a halter style to match up to your halter neckline.”

Real Talk with Jenny Altman - The Spring Dress Dilemma

Mia Multi-way Pushup Bra

“One shoulder dresses can also work well with a great strapless, but a bra that has the one shoulder option is a life-saver when you want bra security. A multi way that turns from strapless into one shoulder (whether you need the left shoulder strap or right) is a must-have. I love the Audrey Multi-way Lightly Lined Bra. It offers lightly lined coverage with great support and the bonus of a rubber-lined back for extra stay up.”

Every bra offers it’s own unique fit and style and serve as the perfect go-to bra for you! Try your favorite at your local Aerie store or shop online at Aerie.com with our free shipping and free returns on all bras guarantee.  

#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Spring Break Looks

#AEOSTYLE Challenge: Spring Break Looks

We’re ready for Spring Break at American Eagle Outfitters — and so are Jessica and Justin, two up and coming fashion and lifestyle bloggers. With spring break season quickly coming to an end, and last minute trips or day outings needing to be planned, we  find ourselves asking these questions: “I need a head-to-toe spring break look? I don’t have the time to pull an outfit together?” — so if you are in the same boat, no worries, we got you covered! We asked Jessica and Justin to each put together a spring break look to wear for a daytime outing and the result — awesome. Stylish, fresh, and fun are exactly what these outfit say. Read on to learn more about Jessica and Justin, their blogs, and what inspired the styling behind their spring break looks.

What inspired her Spring Break look:

“One of my favorite color combinations is coral and olive. I chose this fun printed sun dress for the perfectly girly silhouette and the unique cut outs in the back. I always love a fun detail that’s unexpected. Layering a relaxed moto vest over it was a great way to add color and interest to the look. Plus, I’ve been wanting a great vest to layer for at least a year now and was so excited to be able to style this for Spring. Add a classic wedge and mirrored aviators and I’m ready for Spring break, sunshine and sweet treats.”
