Real Talk: Why You Need a Pushup Bra

Even if a pushup isn’t your daily go-to, it’s a total necessity in every girl’s bra wardrobe! Whether you’re looking for everyday perky or weekend whoa, Aerie has the perfect bra for you. Pushup bras are great for girls of all shapes and sizes to provide just the right amount of support and push.

Watch below for reasons why our Merchandise Manager for Aerie bras, Kerstyn, and fit and style expert Jenny Altman love a good pushup.

The Bridget Pushup bra is one of our go-to’s for every day. Jenny’s favorite? The Ella Gel, for its natural, perky lift. Kerstyn loves the Charley Plunge for her v and scoop-neck tops!

Drew Pushup

The Drew Pushup bra adds two cup sizes for some serious “whoa!” factor.

Real Talk: Why You Need a Layering Bra

Today, we’re chatting with Kerstyn, Merchandise Manager for Aerie bras, and Jenny, our fit & style expert, about the bras you NEED in your back-to-school wardrobe. Today’s topic? Layering bras!

At Aerie, “layering bras” is just another way of saying bralettes. Our layering bras are really a chance to have fun with your bra and make it an accessory to your outfit. These bras are meant to be seen, so show them off! Our Perky Bralette is a great option for smaller-chested girls looking for a little push, but also is a perfect wireless option for girls with larger cup sizes looking for more support.

More about Kerstyn, Aerie’s Merchandising Manager for bras,

“Hi, Aerie girls! I’m from Arcadia, CA. I’ve worked 10 years in the merchandising business because it allows me to wear multiple hats and no day is ever the same. It’s the perfect balance of creativity and analytics. My favorite bra is the Sunnie…she will change your life! I would describe myself as a perfectionist, sarcastic, fashionable and opinionated. Something not many people know about me is that I’m a HUGE NASCAR fan, thanks to my Dad (or not thanks to him!). I am #AerieREAL because I don’t apologize for having an opinion and being a leader.” 

Thanks, Kerstyn! Stay tuned for more from Jenny and Kerstyn on the bras you NEED to have for back-to-school.

Xoxo,

Aerie

AEO Associate Interview: Get To Know Jenelle H.

Do you want to know what its like to work as a buyer for AEO Women’s Fleece? We sat down with Jenelle H. to learn all about her role at AEO, what she’s like outside the office and even dug into her insanely creative side. Check out her interview below and be sure to watch her rapid fire interview for some Q and A’s that are sure to make you giggle.

Name
Jenelle H.

JHuddleston - 1

Jenelle hard at work.

Occupation
Assistant Buyer, Women’s Fleece

JHuddleston-5

Jenelle’s #AEOStyle includes Hi-Rise anything.

What are some of your favorite trends that you’re seeing this summer/BTS?
Hi-rise anything! Shorts, jeans, skirts, swim bottoms…they’re comfortable, a throwback to my 80’s birth era, and all I want to wear this summer.

Summer days tend to be hot, while summer nights can get a bit chilly. How do you recommend styling your outfits to prepare for the change in temps?
Layers on layers on layers – I’m never caught without a second something, especially an open neutral cardigan or light soft jacket.

Are there any trends coming up for fall that you’re excited about?
Jegging tops! I’m exclusively a Jegging fit denim girl, so I’m excited to get cozy with over-sized sweatshirts & plaids. High rise bottoms & crops are great for the summer, but these tops are going to make it easier to accept winter finally setting in.

Jegging tops? Please explain!
Basically just a longer length, over-sized top that is meant to be worn with either leggings or Jegging fit denim. They cover your backside and are really comfy – this is the one we have in fleece:

Jegging Top sneak peek!

What is currently your favorite AEO product?
I’m thrilled to get my hands on these Polka Dot Slip-On Sneakers we have now…  I’ve been plotting all kinds of summer biking in them since I first spotted the samples months ago.

Are there any prints, colors or styles that you’re currently obsessing over?
You might have already picked up on my passion for polka dots, but I also have a thing for florals.  Both are fun and classic, and definitely not limited to one occasion or silhouette.

Who is your style inspiration and why?
I somehow always manage to look slightly disheveled (the hair, maybe?) and I feel like Alexa Chung has that look perfected. She has this confident playful retro vibe with things like her dress silhouettes, peter pan collars, & the ability to rock some polka dots. I once stood behind her in the bathroom line at Lollapalooza in Chicago, and it was definitely a star-struck girl-crush moment.

Words of encouragement drawn by Jenelle.

Favorite part of your job?
Seeing girls wearing products I’ve worked with – even if it’s years later! It’s fun to see how people decide to outfit a piece, and how they’ve made it part of their own style. I know the effort that went into it from my entire team… I always give them a mental high-five when I see other people loving something we brought to life!

What advice do you have for those wanting to enter into a Merchandising career?
Be good at juggling! Not necessarily literally (though I CAN do that – I’m secretly a single person circus), but being able to manage a million things at once is key. It’s a fast paced world here, and it takes a little time to get the hang of staying up to speed, but it’s part of what makes this job fun… every day is different!

You also have a very artistic side to you and have a website to boot! Tell us about your creative personality and inspiration behind your designs.
It’s impossible for me to sit still! I feel antsy unless I have something on my mind that I want to crochet, draw, cook, or bake. I’m inspired by seeing other people being passionate, having fun, & making awesome things – it makes me want to get up and do the same!

Is there anything else that we should know about you?
I have an odd adoration for word play – to the point where I have a pun problem. I’m considering starting a coin fee jar for each one I make…though some people think I should never change.
