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.

#AskJenny Question of the Week: Pushup Bras for Smaller Cup Sizes

This week, our fit and style expert, Jenny Altman, tackles a bra dilemma we hear time and time again – for smaller chested girls looking for a pushup, what’s the best bra to choose for a natural look? Jenny talks some of her top picks below!

Jenny’s here to with tips to help every girl find her perfect fit!

Q: Hi Jenny! I’ve been trying to find the right Aerie push-up bra for me. I wear a 32A and need a push-up that fits but doesn’t gap. Which Aerie push-ups would you recommend?

A: I love your question! I am also a 32A, and I have had great luck with push-up bras from Aerie. The Ella Gel happens to be my favorite.

You can use our bra guide and sort by size to find all the push-up bras available in size 32A. The best thing is that in our bra guide, you can see bras in your cup size. This feature is so helpful in finding the right amount of coverage and lift for you! Our A-cup model is a real A, so you can see how each bra looks on an A-cup.

Since you know your size, it really is a question of which style bra fits you best (whether it’s push-up bra or not) depending on your breast fullness/shape. Some girls do better with full coverage, others with less. If you are a smaller, or less “full” A, then try a bra with less coverage like a balconette or demi-cup. I think you would like the Charley, Lexi, or the Ella Gel (or the Emma if you’re looking for some serious push!). None of these are too full coverage for a smaller cup size, and they all give great lift.

Also, FYI, any time you wear a bra as a racerback or criss-cross, you get even MORE push-up. So convertible or multi-way options like Charley could be an especially great choice!


Gapping is another problem many girls of all cup sizes may experience with certain bra styles. Luckily, it can also be a super quick fix! Check out Jenny’s pro advice on the blog for all the deets.

The Go-To Girls Bra Collection

Bras and best friends have a lot of similarities. We’re serious…think about it! You depend on them to keep your outfit in check. You take care of them! They provide support when you need it. Okay,  so maybe the analogy ends there…but you get the point.

This season we’re focusing on the basics that every girl needs to complete her bra wardrobe from Multi-Way and Strapless Bras to Lightly Lined or a va-va voom Pushup! The Go-To Girls include Bridget, Charley, and Blakely…all priced at $20! Read on below to learn a little bit more about each.

Crystal and Rachelle are wearing our newest bra, Charley! Perfect under v’s and scoops, Charley is a plunge bra with just enough pushup to add a subtle lift. In the center (or the gore) of the bra, there is a key ring that let’s the cups swivel with your body. This works seamlessly with the j-hook in the back for when you want to convert her into a racerback!

Blakely is back with new pop color lace details as your go-to lightly lined bra. Her soft cotton cups offer demi coverage and is perfect to pair with your favorite tee. What we love? Her neon vintage lace side wings. Go ahead, show her off under your summer tanks!

Meet Our Girl…Ella Gel!

 

When it comes to style, the Ella Gel is available in an array of designs; from ultra glam to everyday wear. Her contoured demi cup gives a natural lift for a bit more va-va-voom cleavage. What makes it different than her pushup sisters? Her lift stems from a very comfortable gel pad at the base of each cup. She is one of the most natural feeling pushup bras Aerie offers.
