Aerie Girls Review The Real Me Collection

Real Me. Real AMAZING! We asked some of the #AerieREAL girls around the office to try our new Real Me Bras and let us know their thoughts about our new collection. Read on to see what they had to say about our new bras, undies and leggings with second-skin softness!Aerie Girls Review The Real Me Collection

Aerie Girls Review The Real Me Collection

Cheyenne, AEO Receptionist, loved the super soft feel of the Real Me collection: “All of the pieces felt like a second skin – they were super smooth    and felt barely there. I loved that I still felt fully supported without feeling constrained.  The pretty details were definitely a plus, and kept me feeling confident.”

Andrea, Aerie Associate Merchant, was willing to trade in her everyday sports bras for the Real Me Full Coverage Unlined Bra. “I typically wear sports bras or bralettes, but I love how this unlined bra feels when I’m wearing it! It also is great to layer with. I love how the band smooths my sides, and really like how the cute star detail occasionally peeks out.”

Olivia, Investor Relations Executive Assistant, is loving the lightly lined style. “My favorite was the Real Me Lightly Lined! Honestly, I wore them all for a week off and on! They were amazing!!! I felt free, comfortable and excited. The worst thing in the world is to have a bra that is uncomfortable and I literally forgot I had these on when I was wearing them. SOOO extremely comfortable.”

Melanie, Photo Studio Sample Coordinator, loved that the bras felt made for her. “I love the natural feel of the Real Me Bras. With a larger chest, wearing an unlined bra that still gives you so much support is amazing, making you feel confident in your own body!”

 

While Andrea liked the Real Me Full Coverage Unlined Bra, she LOVED the Real Me Bralette: “SO comfortable. Perfect for layering—I love how I can wear this with my favorite T and have nothing show thru. I usually wear sports bras, but I think this bralette is a little more feminine than a regular sports bra!  While I don’t need a lot of support, I love how this bralette really hugs me. It moves with me, so it really feels like I’m not wearing anything. Love that I can find a better shade of nude for my skin tone.”

To sum it up, Olivia gave the collection her official 11 out of 10 rating: “They all morphed to fit my body, which is the best thing I can ask for; comfort is key and these were definitely an 11 on a 10 point scale.”

Hope you’re loving our new collection as much as these #AerieREAL girls! Comment below and tell us what your fave styles are.
