Behind the Scenes at the Bright Pink & Aerie Ribbon Build

Let’s start the weekend with a riddle. Ready? What stands 24 feet tall, is adorned with over 1500 bras, and is positioned on the lawn of our American Eagle headquarters?

Do you need a hint? Hmm…I can’t give it away too easily…

Hint 1: #AerieSupports

Hint 2: It’s bright pink!

Got it? Thought so! Last Wednesday, our Aerie team gathered volunteers across the company to construct a Breast Cancer ribbon embellished and decorated with…bras! The goal of this stunning structure was to bring awareness, hope, and inspiration to women everywhere. These past weeks we have teamed up with the non-profits, Bright Pink and Rethink. Both partners share a mission of focusing on early detection and prevention of breast and ovarian cancers in young women with cutting-edge breast cancer education.

So, how do you create a 2 story ribbon made from bras? Take a peek behind-the-scenes below!

Okay, the ribbon is officially covered in pink bras. But, … how do we stand it up?
