#AskJenny Question of the Week: Why Do I Need a Full Coverage Bra?

You might be thinking that full coverage bras are just for the larger-chested ladies. But we have Aerie’s fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, and Kerstyn, Merchandise Manager of Aerie bras, here to set the record straight!

Watch below for Jenny and Kerstyn’s tips and tricks on all things full coverage.

Jenny’s take on full coverage? Full coverage bras are really a great t-shirt bra option for girls of all sizes! In fact, it’s your breast shape, rather than your size, that’s the more important factor to consider when deciding what level of coverage is right for you. Full coverage bras, like Aerie’s best selling Sunnie Lightly Lined bra, are especially good choices for girls that are fuller in the top of the breast.

#AskJenny Question of the Week: Will a Demi Bra Work for Me?

This week, our Fit and Style expert, Jenny Altman, tackles your questions on bra coverage! Read her pro tips to learn what amount of coverage is best for your shape and size.

Q: I would really like to wear a demi bra, but I am fuller in that part of my breasts, so they pop out. Is that normal? What bras do you recommend that have full coverage?

A:  Great question! A demi bra is a bra that covers only half to three quarters of the breast, which means that it doesn’t give you as much coverage as a full coverage bra. A full coverage bra comes at least an inch or two higher across the breast, hence the name “full” coverage.

Another difference is what a demi cup bra does for your shape. It actually tilts the breast inward, creating more lift and coverage than your standard full coverage bra.

For you, your shape may work better with a full coverage bra. But before you give up on a demi (they are pretty gorgeous!), make sure you are trying on the right size. You may need to go up a cup size from what you have been wearing in that type of style. I suggest you go into an Aerie store and have a fitting with one of our Bra Experts. They also will have lots of suggestions for different style demi bras you can try, to see if we do have the right demi for you. Once you have your right size, trying on lots of styles is key to finding the perfect bra for you!

Sunnie Stretch Lightly Lined Bra

The Sunnie bra is one of Jenny’s go-to full coverage options.

If a demi is not your answer, then let’s certainly go for a full coverage bra, no problem! My personal favorites would have to be the Sunnie, Katie and Sofie. I think that if you get creative with fun colors and look for special details like lace, you will feel just as pretty in the full coverage as you would in the demi.

To see more of our full coverage and demi coverage options, shop all bras at Aerie.com! Our Bra Guide allows you to see bras in your cup size, to help you pick your perfect fit. Try a few to find the best style for you!

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.

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.

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.

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!
