We asked: Want to wear bras that make you feel real good? You said: YES!
Our newest #AerieREAL faces came from all across the country (and Canada!) for a bra photoshoot unlike any we’ve ever done. Over 10 days of shooting, 10 groups of women came together to shine and share their stories.
“Everywhere you have women just, it seems, tearing each other down. But this whole experience has been nothing but positive and encouraging. We can celebrate things about each other that we love and admire.” –Anna
“#AerieREAL is more of a mindset than anything. It’s feeling comfortable in your own skin and realizing that your flaws aren’t really negative things. They’re things that make you special, they’re things that make you an individual. #AerieREAL is just that mindset, just radiating through.” –Rachel (feeling real good with her sister Shannon!)
Photographers Andrew and Alex shot each woman in multiple outfits and most importantly… bras that they feel real good in.
“For me, #AerieREAL is just completely loving yourself and finally being able to accept who you really are. Because your body loves you. And every cell in your body is working to take care of you every single day, so you need to love it back. Everything that you are, all your stretch marks, all your scars, are there for a reason.” –Grace
This photoshoot wasn’t just about the images— each person had so much #AerieREAL love to share. Every group did their own Real Talk, sharing their advice for other women, what the experience of the shoot was like, their thoughts on change and so much more. Stay tuned for our Real Talk series on Instagram.
A staple of the shoot—the couch of love! Each person signed it and shared their words of inspiration.
Pretty soon, it was all filled up with LOTS of #AerieREAL inspo.
You can see all of these amazing women at Aerie.com and in stores now! We’ll be sharing lots from our photoshoot all month long.
