I don’t know if you guys are familiar with Aerie but it’s the lingerie line that is a sister store to American Eagle and they tweeted this this morning and it made me so happy.
Aerie is seriously a wonderful place to buy bras and undies. I am a 38DD and they always have something hella cute in my size and if they don’t have a style I want, they will order it online for me and have it shipped to my house with the shipping on them. And their bras beat the crap out of Victoria Secrets. The single bra I bought from Victoria’s Secret fell apart the first time I washed it. My Aerie bras? I have been buying from them since sophomore year of high school and I have yet to have a bra fall apart. Sorry I just really love Aerie and they just need more love gomen
Good first step. Now… HOW ABOUT CALLING THEM WOMEN?
Well, American Eagle’s demographic is teenage girls/boys, not women/men. Calling them women would be speaking to a different audience then they are reaching out to, the same way that the guys section wouldn’t be called men’s. I think it’s important that a place like Aerie is doing this because it IS a place where teenagers shop for bras more than adults, and therefore it’s important for them to represent women in all shapes and sizes and to show their natural beauty because teens are some of the most judgemental people about themselves.
Bohemian Rhapsody is no one’s favorite song, but also everyone’s favorite song. Like, when someone asks what your favorite song is you never say Bohemian Rhapsody but when it starts playing on the radio I am pretty sure you crank it up and belt out every single lyric and you don’t even care you’re so proud.
