The softest second-skin bras take REAL work! We asked Senior Designer, Lyndsey, and Merchandise Manager, Brittany, to tell us how our Real Me Collection came to be. In a bralette and lightly lined and unlined bra fits, Real Me is one of our most versatile collections yet. Read on to find out why Lyndsey and Brittany love this collection, and why you will too!

What inspired you and the team to design the Real Me Collection?

Lyndsey: We wanted to make the ultimate #AerieREAL collection, bras so effortless you forget you’re wearing them! Comfort was a key focus when creating Real Me, these are our lightest bras yet with the attention on every component to be ultra thin and smooth, with just the right amount of coverage for every day, great support and a natural looking shape, Real Me lets the the real you shine!

Tell us more about the colors that make up the collection. What inspired them?

Lyndsey: We created a beautiful palette for Real Me, inspired by cosmetic tones and pretty neutrals. All Aerie girls can find a great option for their skin tone. We wanted to give Real Me an extra special signature detail with pretty rose gold tattoos!Meet The #AerieREAL Girls Behind The Real Me Collection

What makes the Real Me Bra your new everyday bra?

Brittany: I’m personally a HUGE Sunnie collection lover & customer, BUT after trying on the Real Me collection, I’m in love! I get even more comfort, more softness, in even more beautiful colors!! It’s so “barely there” that I wore it to bed the other night, because I forgot I had a bra on! It’s so easy to outfit too – its smooth surface easily allows me to layer it under my favorite tee or oversized fleece going into fall!

Tell us your favorite style and color! 

Lyndsey: Oooh hard to choose! My absolute favorite is the Real Me Bralette in Chestnut! It’s so effortless you can wear it with anything and the color is so pretty I love to show it off 🙂

Brittany: The Real Me Unlined bra is my hands-down favorite style because of the sleek and modern silhouette. It gives great lift while still being so dreamy and comfortable. My favorite color is Confidence – because it blends right in to my summertime tan!Meet The #AerieREAL Girls Behind The Real Me Collection
