Forecast Calls for Sunnie!

Forecast Calls for Sunnie!

Sometimes you just need your bra to be simple, smooth and incredibly comfortable. Those days are exactly what we designed Sunnie Stretch for! Technically speaking, she’s what we in the bra biz call a t-shirt bra, which simply means she  works great under t-shirts. I mean, duh. But in all honesty, there’s so much more to Sunnie than her smooth, t-shirt friendly cups.

Forecast Calls for Sunnie!

First and foremost, Sunnie has a 360-degree stretch pad in her cup. While she is lightly lined, her lining is comprised of a thin layer of stretchy foam that actually contours to your curves. It responds to your body heat to shape to you just like our memory foam!

Sunnie is also a full coverage bra, comparable to Katie or Sofie. And she has an extended cradle, meaning her extra soft fabric extends below her wire making her even more comfortable.

Next up, we have her wings and back. Not only is the fabric the super buttery soft stuff that you could practically sleep in, but it’s also seamless all-around, minimizing the lines you might see through a t-shirt. She also has a pretty ballet back, which is just another way of saying u-back. This feature actually helps tuck in any unwanted back bulges, yet again, keeping you all smooth and naturally sexy.

Forecast Calls for Sunnie!

Finally, we wanted to call attention to her straps. Just like most of our straps, they’re lined with a soft, brushed fabric that feels great against your skin. Besides that, they’re also fully-adjustable and adjust forward instead of backward give you more control over their length. They also have pretty little flat stud details close to the cup but don’t worry, they don’t inhibit your ability to adjust as much as you need.

Forecast Calls for Sunnie!

So that’s our new girl, Sunnie! We could talk about her all day long, in fact, we kind of do ‘cause we love her so much! But you won’t know how amazing she is until you give her a try for yourself. Look for her on Aerie.com and in stores on 3.14! And remember, you can return her for free if you’re not 100% happy!

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

To celebrate our recent launch of Aerie REAL we wanted to take the opportunity to feature a few fantastic women who embody #AerieREAL. Today’s Real Talk interview is with Lauren B., born and raised in Wichita, KS and loving her first 5 months working at her local Aerie store.  Learn more about Lauren, what #AerieREAL means to her, her must-have Aerie item, and what inspires her below!

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

Lauren and her fellow Aerie Associates at store #2734, Amy, Katie, and Morgan in front of our spring collection. #AerieREAL

What does #AerieREAL mean to you?

To me, #AerieREAL means loving yourself just as you are- the REAL you! Since this campaign has launched, I have heard and read many comments from women that say something along the lines of “I love myself despite my imperfections” which is my goal for #AerieREAL. I want all women to look at themselves without the standards of a society bringing them down for things that make them one of a kind. It would be nice to see women love themselves by recognizing their own inner and outer beauty and rocking it daily.

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

Lauren showing us her #AerieREAL!

We love that! Because imperfections, aren’t even imperfections! They make you, you! What makes you Aerie REAL?

I am Aerie REAL because of the effort I have made to improve my self-image. I used to think quite poorly of myself but now I take time to notice all my lovely characteristics. Working in a store that specializes in bras and underwear can be a delicate job because I come across many customers that struggle with their self-esteem. I try as hard as I can to help these women notice their own immense beauty.

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

Lauren and her lovely boyfriend, Calton!

Where do you see yourself in 3 years?

In 3 years I would love to be finishing up my graduate studies in violin, playing in professional orchestras, and celebrating three and a half years at Aerie.

That’s awesome! What’s your top favorite Aerie items right now? 

The Holly Longline Bikini Top, Aerie Silky Chiffon Boxers, and the Aerie Striped Mesh Cheeky undies- I yearn for all these things in every color!

Real Talk Interview with Lauren B. of Wichita, KS!

Lauren’s favorite hobby, soon turned career? Violin! #AerieREAL

What is one thing the world needs more of?

Fine Arts Appreciation! I know so many talented artists that haven’t pursued their passion out of fear that their work would be underappreciated or they wouldn’t be able to make a living. The funding for fine arts is cut from so many schools, even though it has been proven to improve test scores in other classes. Art is such a powerful force that can do so much good in the world.

If you could take a vacation to anywhere in the world, where would it be and who would you bring?

I would love to witness the beauty and majesty of Vienna. There would be so much for me to learn and enjoy from visiting this place. I would take my dear boyfriend Colton- the poor guy has never even been on a plane.

DIY: Your Own V-Day Card!

DIY: Your Own V-Day Card!

Looking for something sweet to make a loved one for Valentine’s Day? Taken or single, follow our step-by-step DIY to make the cutest V-Day card for your best girlfriend or your special guy!

DIY: Your Own V-Day Card!

What you’ll need:

 • 3 sheets of craft paper (different colors or shades)

 • Draw and cut out 2 hearts to use; one larger, one smaller that fit on card

 • Envelope, size of your choice (optional)

 • Scissors

 • Ribbon

 • Pencil

 • Tape

 • Ruler

DIY: Your Own V-Day Card!

STEP 1: If using an envelope, measure and trace paper to be slightly smaller than two lengths of the envelope, so card can slide in easily. Cut the two sheets you want to be the first and second layer of card.

DIY: Your Own V-Day Card!

STEP 2: Fold edges to meet in the center and crease.

STEP 3: Trace the third sheet of paper for the layer inside the card.

It is easiest to close the card and trace the outer edge as a pattern. Cut and tape the back of the sheet; flip over, press and center on second layer.

STEP 4: Using the larger heart shape, trace and cut the shape out of the outer layer.

Real Talk with Hana – #AerieREAL

Real Talk with Hana – #AerieREAL

Meet Hana! The newest addition to our Aerie team. Beautiful inside and out, read on to watch and learn what makes Hana #AerieREAL.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Hana catching up with friends while waiting for her next shot!

Hi, Hana! Thanks for sitting down with us! Where’s home to you?   

I am originally from Claremont in Southern California, but now I live in West Village in NYC.

Do you have any hobbies that you can’t get enough of? 

Yes! Yoga! I teach Yoga each week as well.

What’s your favorite yoga pose?  

When things in my life are going crazy, I like to flip upside down. Inversions are awesome! I also really love hip openers and heart openers. It reminds me to remember to stand up and tall and not slouch.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Namaste!

That’s awesome! You’re really talented! What’s your must-have item in your purse? 

Chapstick, I’m fully addicted to any chapstick and have about 15! But, of course, I always grab my one purse that never has any chapstick in it. If I had to choose a flavor? I would say cherry!

What’s your favorite go-to item in your closet?

I do have a favorite t-shirt! It’s sheer, long, and asymmetrical. I like to tie it up at the bottom. I wear it all the time, so my friends who are reading this will totally know what I am talking about!

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Hana rocking out in her soft lace bralette and striped boxers!

What’s your all time favorite Aerie piece for Spring?

OMG. I love everything! I’m addicted to all of it. Aerie’s sweatpants are so cute and I love the little pockets. Also, I usually don’t rock a pushup, but I love the Brooke Polka Dot Pushup suit. I also love the bedtime lacy boxers!

Do you have a role model? 

To be honest, any strong, confident, female serves as a great role model to me. Lately, I have loved reading about Malala Yousafzai, “the bravest girl in the world.”  Her level of resilience is amazing and I love that she stands up for what she believes in.

Real Talk with Hana - #AerieREAL

Let’s switch things up! Instead of John shooting Hana…wait, Hana that’s not what we meant!

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what does “love” mean to you?

I was in a yoga class and a teacher was talking about how the Japanese don’t say, “I love you.” And, if you think about it…we say “I love you” all the time! They challenge, “how can you take such a big feeling and emotion into a single word. It’s such an incredible thing!” I really like that description of it.

While it may be hard for me to sum up I do know one thing is for sure; it makes me warm and fuzzy just talking about it, and I don’t think it’s the Miami heat! :)

Thank you so much Hana for chatting with us!

Learn more about #AerieREAL and “no retouching” here, and stay tuned for more upcoming “real talk” interviews.

Aerie
