#AskJenny Question of the Week: Multiway Bras that Do It All

Most of us Aerie girls have at least one multi-way bra in our bra wardrobe…but are we using it to its fullest potential? Our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman (@ILoveAGood), answers your latest #AskJenny question on how multi-ways can be so much more than strapless, below!

Q: I know there are other ways you can wear Aerie’s convertible bras besides just strapless – but I’m lost! What exactly are the different ways to wear a multi-way bra?

A: The great thing about having a multi-way bra in your closet is that it is so versatile! You do not need a bra for each outfit, you just need a great do-it-all bra. Aerie offers several multi-way bras in both pushup and lightly lined…functioning as 6+ bras in one!

My personal favorite is the Mia Multi-Way pushup bra…it adds just the right amount of lift that’s perfect with everything from your strappy tanks to most formal dresses. A great everyday option is our Audrey Multi-Way bra for you lightly lined girls!

If you only have budget for one multi-way bra, I always suggest nude for maximum versatility.

The animation below gives a step-by-step guide for all the different ways to wear your favorite multi-way (here, it’s the Mia Vintage Lace Multi-Way pushup bra). With so many ways to wear, this bra can really go the distance – and stretch your dollar!

So, Aerie girls, don’t let the straps on your newest multi-way purchase collect dust in your drawer! Use them to their full potential and you’ll see what a versatile must-have a multi-way bra is in your wardrobe. They are truly the best investment bras ever!

For more quick tips from Jenny, check out our most recent #AskJenny blog post! Still have more questions? Jenny’s always here to answer and provide her pro perspective! Ask @Aerie on Twitter using #AskJenny, or send your question via email to AskJenny@ae.com.

Xoxo,

Wedding Season Essentials

The longest day of the year has come and gone, which means that wedding season is in full swing! We don’t know about you, but our calendars are packed with summer weddings, ranging from rustic retreat to city chic. While weddings bring their share of anxieties (the date! the dress!), one thing we won’t be stressing about is what to bring along for the big day. Our essentials will make wedding season no sweat, whether you’re a guest, a bridesmaid, or the bride!

Wedding Season Essentials

Keep these essentials close at hand for any wedding season situation!

Our Pushup Lace Bare Bra is a must-have bra for all your formal attire, and weddings are no exception. The cups provide everyday lift worthy of a very special occasion, and the beige color is perfect under white or sheer dresses. The adhesive wings also add extra security and support. Quick tip: for maximum stick, make sure you’re applying your Bare Bra to clean, dry skin and avoid applying over any powder or deodorant! For more on Bare Bra wear and care, check out our Bare Bra Quick Fix video with our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman.

Broken zipper or slipping straps? Our Apparel Tape is a lifesaver! Plus, for added bonus points, they slip perfectly into even the smallest of clutches! Jenny gives the full lowdown on using Aerie Apparel tape here.

We love Aerie Gel Petals for tops and dresses that require the least amount of coverage. We like to wear them when going braless to eliminate any perky issues and provide a little coverage.

Our Outta-Sight Thong is on heavy rotation in our undie arsenal for bodycon skirts and dresses (ok, and jeans, and shorts, and everything…). Not only are they super comfortable, but their thin, seamless fabrication lies totally flat…goodbye, panty lines!

Outta-Sight Thong

Our Outta-Sight Thong keeps panty lines from ruining your gorgeous wedding look!

Our classic Aerie fragrance is the perfect final touch to any look! We love the rollerball size to quickly pop in our bag for on-the-go spritzing.

Now, you’re all set! Get ready to hit the wedding circuit in style, and party on, Aerie girl!

Xo,

Aerie

Introducing the Best Basics Collection

Introducing the Best Basics Collection

Introducing the Best Basics collection! From Caramel to Fair, we recognize that nude and your most basic bra may not be just one color. It’s a variation of tones, hues, and warmth. Having your basics for back to school and for your favorite tee are a must. We sat down with Kodi T., one of Aerie’s online Assistant Buyers, to find out what makes the Best Basics collection the perfect match for you.

What features makes a bra perfect for wearing under a t-shirt?

Katie is a great t-shirt bra for a number of reasons! First- her full coverage gives great support and shape for aerie girls of any size. Second, her smooth and soft microfiber isn’t just comfortable – it’s perfectly discrete under even your thinnest Tees.

What are some tips for buying bras that go under a white top?

Either go incognito in one of aerie’s 7 shades of nude or go bold in a statement color bralette! Avoid white under white t-shirt– you’ll get more show through than you’d expect!

In the Aerie sea of bright colors and lacy details, what makes the Best Basics collection special?

The Best Basics collection is special because it offers nude matches for a range of skin tones – at only $29.95 ($20 this week!) Not to mention, everyone needs a couple of great nude bras in their drawer! They are a functional solution piece, like a pair of black pumps!

With trends that involve showing off pretty straps in different colors, why did we want to expand the neutral line of bras?

While we are all for showing off your bra here at aerie – every girl needs a couple basic nude bras! This new line of neutrals will make sure that even more aerie girls can find a great match!

How did you choose the colors for the line?

We took a critical look at our basics offerings and realized we had a lot more to offer! Our design team in New York did a great job of expanding our existing shades of nude with every aerie girl in mind!
