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.

What to Wear Under Your AEO: Crossback Kate Dress

What goes under your AE? Aerie, of course!

The AEO Crossback Kate Dress is one of our favorites…but can pose a problem when it comes to finding the right bra and undies to wear underneath.

Our Fit & Style Expert, Jenny Altman, suggests wearing your favorite fun bra peeking out for a look that’s meant to make a statement. Or, draw all the attention to the unique design of the dress by pairing it with an Aerie Pushup Lace Bare Bra that will be totally concealed.

For an extra dose of coverage, Jenny recommends a nude boyshort or boybrief. (Remember, nude, not white, is the color you want to wear to hide your undies under white clothes!)

With these tips, you’ll be ready to hit the street with style! Watch below for all of Jenny’s tips on outfitting this look with Aerie pieces.

Quiz: What undie matches your #AEOStyle personality

We’re having a bum rush today, a.k.a. all undies on sale. And in honor of this celebratory rush, we’re having a contest on Facebook for a chance to win 52 pairs of underwear. Why 52? Well, one for every week of the year, of course! We didn’t want the fun to stop there… so we created a quiz for both guys and gals to determine which pair of underwear matches your #AEOStyle. So go ahead and take our quiz, then head to our Facebook page and enter to be one of four people to win 52 pairs of undies. Don’t stop there, enter aerie’s Facebook quiz too! You can never have too many pairs of underwear, right.. didn’t our moms always say that?


Mostly A’s: Lace Waist Boybrief
Sometimes you’re a little soft-spoken and reserved. You’re more at home snuggled on the couch with your favorite DVD than out at the clubs or the Friday night game. You love pretty pastels and cute prints, like these pale pink undies with lace trim.

Mostly B’s: Signature Lace Boybrief
You march to the beat of your own drum. You might be just as happy listening to the latest indie rock tune as you are at an art gallery with your friends or watching a documentary on Netflix. You like your classics with a bit of a twist, like these bright pink lace undies with a waistband inspired by your boyfriend’s boxers.

Mostly C’s: Lace Trim Printed Thong
Who’s the life of the party? YOU ARE! You can’t think of anything better than a night out with friends at the latest club or restaurant (and of course you’re the center of attention). You frequently reach for pieces like these bold animal print undies.


Mostly A’s: Beer 30 Low Rise Trunk
Who’s the life of the party? YOU ARE! You can’t think of anything better than a night out with friends or playing varsity football (and of course you’re the quarterback and team captain). You want your underwear to make a statement, which is why you love wearing trunks with bold, notice-me prints.

Mostly B’s: Striped Boxer
Shy, quiet, reserved, super nice… all words that have been used to describe your personality in the past. People might think you’re a little #normcore, but really, you just like to stick with what works—like a great pair of pinstriped boxers.

Mostly C’s: Pickle Boxer
You march to the beat of your own drum. You might be just as happy listening to the latest indie rock tune as you are at an art gallery with your friends or watching a documentary on Netflix. No one quite has your sense of style, so you always start with boxers with interesting prints (like pickles).

Extra bonus!… Mens Underwear are 3 for $25 and gal’s don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of our 8/$26.50 Undie Bundle. Don’t forget to check out aerie’s undie bundle offer too!  One day only!
