Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

When your wedding day rolls around, having the right undergarments will make a world of difference. Whether you need strapless, backless or a little push up, our bra accessories have got you covered. Looking for a seamless finish? Our Outta-Sight collection is tagless and smooth for zero undie lines.

Megan from The Things She Sees gave us a sneak peek into her big day and talks the importance of choosing the right undergarments.

Meet Megan:
Megan is a lover of all things beautiful: style, home design, projects, but most importantly beautiful and meaningful lives. She is the Founder and Editor of The Things She Sees, a lifestyle blog that covers everything from date night outfits to home improvement projects, all the while aiming to inspire others to also see the beauty in their lives!

Wedding Day Essentials: The Bare Bra

“I wish I could say that everything went smoothly when it came to choosing my dress, but it definitely did NOT. I had some major fit issues as my upper body doesn’t quite match in size with my lower body (you know what I’m sayin’?!) and while I’m not complaining, it made for some tough fittings! The Bare Bra Pushup was a lifesaver on my wedding day to help boost me up top but also last me throughout my honeymoon for all of my low-back dresses.

Aerie undies have been my favorite for years for the simple fact that they’re undoubtedly the most comfortable! Most brides gravitate towards everything WHITE when it comes to the countless parties, showers and events you have during your special time so a comfy nude no-show panty is a must, like the Outta-Sight Thong!”

“I wish I could go back and celebrate our big day over and over again! A year and a half’s work of saving, planning and organizing culminated in the most beautiful ceremony full of intimate details with my new husband. The best part? Having an epic dance party with everyone until last call!”

How To Make Avocado Toast 3 Ways

Have you jumped on the avocado toast train yet? If not, today’s CHAARG (Changing Health, Attitudes & Actions to Recreate Girls) post will bring you up to speed on this amazing snack!

How To Make Avocado Toast 3 Ways with Aerie

Avocados are incredible nutrition. They provide more potassium than a banana and 15 grams of healthy fats like oleic acid, which has been linked to reduced inflammation and beneficial effects on the genes that fight cancer. The great thing about avocados is they are so versatile—you can add them to smoothies, throw them on tacos for dinner, eat them plain out of a bowl or even add them to desserts. We are avocado obsessed, and after trying these recipes for Avocado Toast, you will be too! Avocado toast is a quick and easy way to get a healthy and filling breakfast or snack. All of these recipes take less than 5 minutes to make and will keep you full and energized for hours!

When summer officially hits, there’s no better way to celebrate than to grab your favorite Aerie Swim and head to the nearest pool. Blogger besties Jessica from My Style Vita and Cathy from Poor Little It Girl styled their go-to suits on a recent trip to South Beach.

What Inspired Jessica and Cathy’s Look:
“For our recent trip to Miami, Jessica and myself knew we wanted swimsuit that was bold, and still stylish, as we headed to the beach on our mini vacation. The open back on my one-piece suit was fun and unexpected and left me feeling not too covered up while in the sun! Jessica’s pink romper and fun tropical print bikini fit right in with the fun style of South Beach!”

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Convertible Bikini Bottom

The Hi-Rise Convertible Bikini Bottom is going to be your new best friend. With it’s full coverage, foldover waistband you’ll be ready to hit the beach (or pool!) with total confidence. Mix and match with your favorite Swim Tops to create the perfect set.

Jess from The Golden Girl blog grabbed her favorite Holly Bikini Top and Hi-Rise Convertible Bikini Bottom and hit the pool with beach ball in tow!

What Inspired Jess’s Look:
“For my look, I wanted to finally try out the high wasted bathing suit trend. It’s so flattering on a variety of body types and I love that it’s a bikini with a modest take. In my wardrobe, I really try to focus on items that can be worn several different ways, and this bathing suit is no different. It’s about as versatile as they come! ”

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Convertible Bikini Bottom

“The adjustable bottoms are a perfect high waist fit, but you can adjust them to mid waist, or roll them down to a bikini cut! I have to say, they might be the most comfortable bathing suit bottoms I’ve ever worn!”

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Convertible Bikini Bottom

“I often have a hard time finding a bikini top that fits correctly. (Don’t you just love when that happens?) So this top was ideal because of the adjustable tie back, cups for the right amount of support, and the removable halter straps. I’m going to be living in this all summer along with these mirrored sunnies (which look expensive, but will only set you back a few bucks!) To top it all off, this adorable striped wrap is the perfect compliment– it doubles as both a cover up and a blanket to sit on!”

The One-Piece swimsuit isn’t for the timid. Between the bold prints, fun cut-outs, crisscross backs and crochet details, we’re clearly not afraid of a challenge.

Jessica from The Steele Maiden styles her favorite Cross-Back One-Piece by pairing it with our Beach Tank and Short.

How to Style a One-Piece Swimsuit

What Inspired Jessica’s Look:
“My motto for the beach is casual and comfortable.. but still cute!  I loved the relaxed fit on these breezy shorts and this sweater tank is so easy to throw on, plus it was easily dressed up with jeans and heels to head out to dinner later that night. And I can’t get enough of Summer hats like this straw fedora – stylish and practical, it’s a win win.”
