Panels focused on empowerment, body positivity and wellness, featuring game-changing women who are breaking stereotypes and living their dreams. Thamarr, #AerieREAL girl from Musings of a Curvy Lady, said “I love meeting other female entrepreneurs that are super passionate about using their voice for good. Their fierce desire to make things happen is so electric.”

The first panel, Self-Love: Learning To Live, Love & Thrive As Ourselves, featured Fo Porter, Alex Michael May, Chante Bryant, Aly Raisman and Heather Records. The girls discussed how they keep it #AerieREAL in in and out of the public eye. Alex Michael May shared: “So many beautiful women came to #ccxaerie @createcultivate pop up at @aerie to share their hearts—to have REAL TALK about the things that connect us—imposter syndrome, loving ourselves and of course laughing through it all.”
