Booty Talk! A Guide to Choosing the Best Undies

Big booty? No booty? Curvy? Flat? Every girl, and every body, is different — and that includes you and yours! Your personality, everyday activities and just the way you feel about things (at any given moment!) all shape your decisions about what clothes you like to wear, from top to bottom.

Although it’s easy to dismiss undies as just a garment you slip on before choosing your outfit, the best pair — best for you, that is — is more revealing of your personality than you’d think. Undies come in a wide range of cuts and styles, each with its own pros and cons. Which one is right for you?

If you’re feeling undie-whelmed by all the options, Aerie is here to help! Use this guide to help you personalize your search for undies. Take our fun quiz, then read more about the undies that fit you best!

Thong: Nothin’ but cheek! This is the most revealing style available and is great for fashion-forward girls who love body-con dresses and skinny jeans — but not panty lines. Super-soft stretch cotton and a low rise make our thongs extra comfy, even if you haven’t tried this style before.

Cheeky: If you’re not ready to go full cheek but are looking for less coverage than a bikini, cheekies are a great compromise. These undies offer just a peek of cheek, giving you a hint of sass. (Want to go a little further? The mini cheeky shows even more cheek while still offering more coverage than a thong.)

Bikini: Are you a classic kind of girl? The bikini will never go out of style, and for good reason — it provides a comfortable amount of backside coverage without sacrificing any cuteness. In a wide range of pretty prints and lace trims, this is a great choice for the girl who values a practical wardrobe but still wants a sprinkle of flirty, feminine style.

Boyshort: Looking for a pair of undies that can do double duty? Boyshorts offer a low rise but no cheek peek, and keep you covered from a flippy skirt on a windy day to lounging around the house and catching some zzz’s. All you need is a pair of boyshorts and some knee socks for an insta-lounge session after work or school. Underwear for loungewear. How easy is that?

Girly Short: If you’re a boho kind of girl, make your underpinnings match your free spirit by choosing the Girly Short style. These ultra-romantic undies have all the coverage of a boyshort but are made entirely of feminine lace.

Boybrief: So you’re wanting a little more than a bikini but not quite feeling the boy or girly short? The boybrief is a great option, serving up just the right amount of backside coverage. It’s a great choice for the sporty girl who has no time to worry about wedgies! And for those who want to fine-tune things just a teeny bit more, consider the Mini Boybrief, which keeps your curves in place but allows just a hint of cheek to peek.

Xoxo,

Aerie

#AerieREAL Panel of Amazing Women

We’ve seen an incredible amount of support for #AerieREAL and we love seeing the support spread from woman to woman as each shares their #AerieREAL story. Your kind words, open hearts, and courage are what inspired us to launch our new challenge, “What Do You Love About You?”.

callouts-amber-with-message

You’re invited to self-nominate or to nominate a friend that you believe is #AerieREAL. We want to feature their moments, celebrate them and their accomplishments in hope that they inspire others.

5 individuals will be chosen to receive the ultimate Aerie experience! They’ll be invited to join us at Aerie’s HQ and will be featured in an interview on the AEO blog (right here!) complimented by a mini shoot in our Photo Studio. Then, our winners will join Aerie’s style and fit expert, Jenny Altman, as they enjoy a $200 shopping spree and more!

We have a panel of amazing, REAL women who will read through the entries! Read on below to learn a bit more about each and what makes them #AerieREAL.

Dana Seguin, Aerie’s Senior Director of Marketing has been in the retail business for over 14 years. The last eight years has been spent in brand development and marketing for Chico’s, American Eagle Outfitters and their intimates brand, Aerie. She has spent the last year working on Aerie Real and refuses to use retouched images and helps to promote positive body image.

Amy Levin is the founder and creative director of CollegeFashionista, a fashion website featuring content from college students at more than 400 campuses around the world. A Chicago native, she launched the website in 2009 after a semester abroad in London, where the growing importance of street style inspired her to create a community for fashion, photography and self expression.

Jenny Altman, Aerie’s Style and Fit Expert, is the go-to resource from how-to’s and bra quick fixes. As a fashion editor and stylist for InStylePeople Style Watch, and O, the Oprah Magazine, Jenny has helped dress some of the world’s most celebrated personalities and most importantly she helps transform countless REAL women on a daily basis with her website ILOVEAGOOD.COM. Celebrity or not, Jenny believes intimates are (literally) the foundation of a confident look for all women and her passion is helping women find the right pieces for their body shape by talking about it in a REAL way.

Lindsay Avner, the Founder and CEO at Bright Pink was the youngest patient in the US to bravely opt for a risk-reducing double mastectomy with reconstruction. During the experience, Lindsay was frustrated by the lack of resources for women in her specific situation. So, armed with optimism and dedication, Lindsay founded Bright in Pink in January 2007. Now in its seventh year, Bright Pink is the only national non-profit focusing on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support to high-risk individuals.

Each day these women exemplify what being #AerieREAL means. It’s being true to you. Believing that imperfections are beautiful and believing that no one can change who you are.

Tweet us, tag us, or tell us your story today! We’ll be highlighting our favorites by April 6th, but you can always tell us your #AerieREAL story anytime on Twitter and Instagram by tagging us with #AerieREAL.
