#AskJenny Question of the Week: Will a Demi Bra Work for Me?

This week, our Fit and Style expert, Jenny Altman, tackles your questions on bra coverage! Read her pro tips to learn what amount of coverage is best for your shape and size.

Rachelle is all smiles in one of Jenny’s full coverage picks, the Sofie bra!

Q: I would really like to wear a demi bra, but I am fuller in that part of my breasts, so they pop out. Is that normal? What bras do you recommend that have full coverage?

A:  Great question! A demi bra is a bra that covers only half to three quarters of the breast, which means that it doesn’t give you as much coverage as a full coverage bra. A full coverage bra comes at least an inch or two higher across the breast, hence the name “full” coverage.

Another difference is what a demi cup bra does for your shape. It actually tilts the breast inward, creating more lift and coverage than your standard full coverage bra.

For you, your shape may work better with a full coverage bra. But before you give up on a demi (they are pretty gorgeous!), make sure you are trying on the right size. You may need to go up a cup size from what you have been wearing in that type of style. I suggest you go into an Aerie store and have a fitting with one of our Bra Experts. They also will have lots of suggestions for different style demi bras you can try, to see if we do have the right demi for you. Once you have your right size, trying on lots of styles is key to finding the perfect bra for you!

Sunnie Stretch Lightly Lined Bra

The Sunnie bra is one of Jenny’s go-to full coverage options.

If a demi is not your answer, then let’s certainly go for a full coverage bra, no problem! My personal favorites would have to be the Sunnie, Katie and Sofie. I think that if you get creative with fun colors and look for special details like lace, you will feel just as pretty in the full coverage as you would in the demi.

To see more of our full coverage and demi coverage options, shop all bras at Aerie.com! Our Bra Guide allows you to see bras in your cup size, to help you pick your perfect fit. Try a few to find the best style for you!

Back to School Essentials: Leggings

Ever feel like you never want summer to end, but fall can’t come quickly enough? While we’ll be enjoying August to the fullest, we can’t help but get a little excited for one of our favorite parts of the cooler months…new fall styles at Aerie!

Our absolute fall-time necessity would have be to be leggings. So we sat down with Natalie, associate buyer for bottoms at Aerie, to chat about all the deets on her favorite new styles for the Back-to-School season. Leggings may be an everyday staple in your wardrobe, but our new fun prints, details and colors make this essential piece anything but basic. From our morning coffee to dinner with friends, we know we’ll be living in our new leggings 24/7 this fall.
