Most of you are probably familiar with the brand Aerie. In case you’re not, it is the sister company of American Eagle that focuses primarily on undergarments and swim. I was a loyal AE shopper until my early twenties, but grew away from the brand as I felt it was targeted to a younger customer. Recently, however, I have been revisiting my old stomping grounds and have developed a new love for Aerie.
Aerie initially caught my attention because of their collaborations with body-positive influencers and their ads using un-photoshopped models. Their campaign #AerieReal features models of all shapes and sizes (and ages), empowering women to be themselves.
I finally got past my age insecurities, and headed to Aerie. And I’m sure glad I did! I loved everything they had in store from their bras, to swim, to casual apparel pieces. Their design style fits my easy-going, bohemian vibes and their price point is ideal for someone on a budget. One of my favorite find was this comfy and cute two-piece set.
I have been loving two-piece sets this season, but since I consider myself somewhat curvy, I need to find the right ones. This one is perfect because it has a loose fit, but hugs my waist, showing off my hourglass shape. Also, the thick elastic waistband is the secret to not getting that suffocating feeling and muffin top when sitting in high waisted pants and a crop top. I felt so confident roaming around Phoenixville in this set! I can tell this set will be a go-to for me this summer.
Thanks for stopping by, and if you haven’t checked Aerie out lately, I highly advise you do so!
