Strong. Beautiful. YOU!

Strong. Beautiful. YOU!

We’re so proud to celebrate our fourth year partnering with NEDA, a non-profit that supports individuals and families affected by eating disorders and serves as a catalyst for prevention, cures and access to quality care. Aerie sponsors all NEDA walks across the country that help raise money for advocacy and educational programs and provide support for local communities.

Strong. Beautiful. YOU!

Along with our sponsorship, #AerieREAL Role Model, Iskra Lawrence, will continue to partner with the non-profit as a NEDA Ambassador and attend walks throughout the year. Iskra is always open about her personal journey of learning to accept her body and love her REAL self, and her brave story helps encourage others to do the same.

Strong. Beautiful. YOU!As always, we’re launching a limited-edition collection so you can shop to support NEDA. This year, not only did we bring back our Limited-Edition NEDA Tee, but we also added three styles of NEDA undies! Shop the tee and boybriefs and we’ll donate 100% of sales to NEDA. Want to show your support instead? This spring and summer, we’ll donate $1 (now up to $25,000!) to NEDA for every unretouched swim photo or video you share with #AerieREAL.

Check out Aerie.com/AerieSupports and MyNEDA.org to learn more about NEDA and for additional resources. Always remember… love yourself just as you are. YOU are #AerieREAL!

  • To keep your pumpkin fresh, spray it with a bleach/water mix.
