Stylist’s Picks: Softest leggings ever3

This Play Real Me High Waisted Legging has cute asymmetrical color-blocking details and stitching, and happens to be the softest leggings you will ever touch. You MIGHT forget you’re wearing pants… except for all of the compliments you’ll be getting!

Stylist’s Picks: Softest leggings ever

The only thing as comfy as a Real Me Legging is a Real Sunnie Wireless Bra. It has the coverage and support of a bra, but the easy feel of your favorite bralette. It’s an essential for your bra drawer and these colors this season are amazing. Stock up!

Stylist’s Picks: Softest leggings ever

The best layer under your Real Me Legging is the Real Me Thong. On top, go for this Lace Inset Fleece. It has all the coziness with all the feminine details, and this lilac is one of the prettiest shades of the season. You will be seeing more of this color, we promise!

Real Talk with Evelyn Riddell

Evie is a history student at the University of Toronto, an active member of the type one diabetes community, and she just so happens to be fearless wearing a bra in front of a camera! Read on for more of her story and why she wanted to join our latest #AerieREAL photoshoot.

What made you want to join this #AerieREAL bra photoshoot?

Aerie has been my favourite store for many years. I started out with wearing their clothes, and then ended up loving their message. I often looked at their photos in store and on social media, wondering if I could ever be a part of their movement, but at first I thought my Type One Diabetes would somehow disqualify me. After all, I had never seen anyone like myself represented before. I had faith, however, that if any store could change this, it would be Aerie! When I saw the contest opportunity on their Instagram, I decided to take a chance and apply. I hoped that I would be given the opportunity to not only make my dream come true, but to represent all Type One diabetics and give them a voice.

You’re on our site rocking a bra and an insulin pump, and people everywhere (us included!) are so inspired by you. How does it feel to represent the diabetic community?  

It has been absolutely surreal! When I was diagnosed, one of the first things I noticed was how incredibly supportive the Type One community is. From the very beginning I have been an active member of this community, and I am forever grateful for the lessons, friends and opportunities it has given me. It feels amazing to be giving back, and be representing Type Ones within the #AerieREAL movement. I’ve heard from countless individuals saying how this campaign is the first time they’ve seen themselves represented in the media. I have received messages from tweens, teens, adults, and parents of young children. Many individuals have even sent me photos wearing their Continuous Glucose Monitors [CGM] or insulin pumps visibly for the first time. My hope is that one day soon it won’t be a single campaign representing the community, but Type One representation will be so normalized that we’ll see devices worn confidently, and blood sugar checks done proudly everywhere… until there’s a cure!!

Have you seen representation of people with diabetes in the media before? How has it (or the lack of it) affected you?

The only time I see Type One representation in the media is when I’m actively looking for it. That’s why the type one community is so important, because it provides us with examples of individuals thriving and proudly living with Type One Diabetes. Without these, there really isn’t representation within “mainstream” media. There is a narrative of general “diabetes” within advertising, which leads to many misunderstandings about the differences between Type One and Type Two diabetes. Because of this incomplete narrative I have received many rude or ignorant comments about my personal health. I have been subjected to comments from both my peers and strangers, ranging from my eating habits to their reasons for my diagnosis, and even my body type. This was not easy to deal with as a 12 year old girl already struggling with self-confidence and body positivity. This is why representation of Type One Diabetes is so important, because it can educate people and help breakdown harmful misconceptions. I know that this campaign would have meant the world to a me at 12 years old, and I hope that it will mean just as much to everyone else.BTS2_Carousel_Bras_2_2

Tell us about your experience on the shoot!

The shoot was absolutely incredible! One of the most empowering, exciting and fulfilling days of my life! Every single person on set genuinely believes in Aerie’s message. Their first priority was making sure all the models felt comfortable and safe. Wearing just a bra and underwear can be intimidating, especially with flashing lights and cameras pointed at you. This being said, I never felt anything other than comfortable and was surprised how natural it all felt. As someone with Type One diabetes, Aerie made sure there was always food in case I went low, and were all eager to learn more about how my devices worked. I arrived beyond excited yet very nervous, and by the end of the day, left feeling like I had a new family.

What makes you #AerieREAL?

I’m not perfect, far from it, but I’m trying my best! I’m real about this, and I want people to know it! When it comes to my Type One Diabetes, I don’t want to pretend that it’s not difficult. Growing up I was always a perfectionist, but type one has helped teach me that there is no such thing as “perfect”. Having a chronic illness means learning to accept both the highs and the lows, and being content with knowing you’re trying your best. I wear my insulin pump and CGM proudly, because without it I can’t grow, mature and live the life I want to.

Feeling REAL good in your bra with Jenna Kutcher

Let’s be honest, going bra shopping hasn’t been at the top of our list of “fun experiences”…. but that? That’s a thing of the past and now shopping for bras doesn’t have to be this daunting experience where you leave frustrated, insecure, and empty handed…. because if we get down to it, it’s not even really about the bra itself but how you FEEL in it and Aerie is making sure that you’ll leave the store feeling real good.

When I sat down with the Aerie team, recounting awkward dressing room experiences and frustrations that left me wondering what was wrong with my body or squeezing into bras that just didn’t fit right, I realized that many other women probably have shared similar experiences. Ladies, we are not alone in the fact that finding the best fit for the “the girls” isn’t an easy task – but now? It’s one that can leave you feeling powerful, happy, and REAL.

At the shoot, we quickly discovered that pregnancy had already changed my body (and cup size) a lot, so there I was, standing in a dressing room saying a silent prayer that I could find something to fit my changing body. The Aerie team got to work finding new bras that fit me amazingly and I let out a “sigh” of relief knowing there were options that could accommodate my changing “girls” that left me feeling powerful and confident. Dressing room nightmares, be gone, because Aerie’s changing the game once and for all.

So let’s dive on into what’s new at Aerie and I’ll share my personal experience (candidly) about each collection and how they made me feel!

5.JPG

To kick off the collections, let’s start with the “Real Me” line, which feels almost like a second skin. The new Real Me Full Coverage Push Up Bra has a great amount of lift and boost, and I’m drawn to wear this bra in my everyday life the most because it feels like an extension of me without feeling like too much.

The “Real Happy” is named that for a reason, this collection is known for all the right options in all the right places and let me tell you… the Real Happy Full Coverage Lightly Lined Bras has the most cup coverage of all the options and reinforced straps. Since my body is a changing being pregnant, this one makes me feel the most secure of all!

3.jpgNow, let me tell you about the “Real Sunnie!” There’s a reason this is the #1 tee shirt bra for Aerie, it’s soft, stretchy, and supportive and amazing for under just about everything. It comes in many options from lightly lined to wireless, so you’re sure to find the best fit! Seriously, from strapless to push up, there’s a Real Sunnie waiting for you!

The “Real Power” lives up to its name with a plunging neckline and convertible straps – not to mention a convertible amount of boost in the form of a push up. It can be your secret power for the next time you need a little extra something! The lace options are TO-DIE-FOR and probably my personal favorite from this collection!

Regardless of which you choose, it’s all about how you F EEL – from the experience of shopping whether you’re in a fitting room or the comfort of your home, we want your Aerie purchase to be made with total confidence (and it can, because returns? They are on us!) Now? I’m excited to purchase new bras because I know that there’s a size for me and everybody and options for every occasion. Trust me, when you focus on how you feel, everything changes!
