#AskJenny Question of the Week: How Should My Bra Band Fit?

This week, everyone was wanting to know Jenny’s quick fixes for bra band issues! Since your band is the part of your bra providing the most support, it is so important to make sure you find your perfect fit. Jenny’s tips will help make sure you’re getting the size and support you need in a bra band, every time!

Q: How should my bra band feel when I first buy it? Tight or loose?

Q: My band is super tight and uncomfortable! Help!

A: If your band is too tight and digging in, chances are you just need to go up a band size. Or, sometimes, you need to realize that that bra style may just not be the best style for you.

Q: My band is riding up in the back! How can I keep it from sliding around?

A: If your band is riding up in the back, it’s too big! You need to go down a band size. You should be able to comfortably wear your bra on the loosest hook without any issues with it slipping and sliding.

That’s it for now! Have more questions for Jenny about fit and style? Email her at AskJenny@ae.com, or tweet @Aerie with #AskJenny! We’ll be answering your FAQ’s weekly on the blog (last week, we covered your question, “what is a sister size, and will it work for me?”).

Xoxo,

Wedding Season Essentials

The longest day of the year has come and gone, which means that wedding season is in full swing! We don’t know about you, but our calendars are packed with summer weddings, ranging from rustic retreat to city chic. While weddings bring their share of anxieties (the date! the dress!), one thing we won’t be stressing about is what to bring along for the big day. Our essentials will make wedding season no sweat, whether you’re a guest, a bridesmaid, or the bride!

Wedding Season Essentials

Keep these essentials close at hand for any wedding season situation!

Our Pushup Lace Bare Bra is a must-have bra for all your formal attire, and weddings are no exception. The cups provide everyday lift worthy of a very special occasion, and the beige color is perfect under white or sheer dresses. The adhesive wings also add extra security and support. Quick tip: for maximum stick, make sure you’re applying your Bare Bra to clean, dry skin and avoid applying over any powder or deodorant! For more on Bare Bra wear and care, check out our Bare Bra Quick Fix video with our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman.

Broken zipper or slipping straps? Our Apparel Tape is a lifesaver! Plus, for added bonus points, they slip perfectly into even the smallest of clutches! Jenny gives the full lowdown on using Aerie Apparel tape here.

We love Aerie Gel Petals for tops and dresses that require the least amount of coverage. We like to wear them when going braless to eliminate any perky issues and provide a little coverage.

Our Outta-Sight Thong is on heavy rotation in our undie arsenal for bodycon skirts and dresses (ok, and jeans, and shorts, and everything…). Not only are they super comfortable, but their thin, seamless fabrication lies totally flat…goodbye, panty lines!

Outta-Sight Thong

Our Outta-Sight Thong keeps panty lines from ruining your gorgeous wedding look!

Our classic Aerie fragrance is the perfect final touch to any look! We love the rollerball size to quickly pop in our bag for on-the-go spritzing.

Now, you’re all set! Get ready to hit the wedding circuit in style, and party on, Aerie girl!

Xo,

Aerie

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!
