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!

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!

Now, 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!
