Underneath It All

I received an Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own.

As a style blogger, obviously what I wear on the outside is important to me. I love showcasing my style, and see my personal style evolve each month! I also believe what what we wear under the daily clothes are essential as well-- 
Yes, I'm talkin' bout bras!

I used to just buy whatever size I thought felt right. Boy, was I wrong! I actually worked at a place that sold bras a couple years ago, and I learned so much about the importance of a good fit. I was wearing a band size that was way too large, and a cup size that was way too small. When you get fitted right and wear the correct size, it can make the world of a difference! You don't want to be lookin' lumpy by any means!

American Eagle has their line of bras, panties, swimsuit, and apparel over at Aerie. Aerie has a Fitting Guide that will take you step by step through your bra shopping experience. They tell you exactly how to measure yourself, and even offer fit tips (are the straps too loose? Is the underwire digging in?) as well as care instructions on how to keep your bras in good shape. 
The guide is extremely easy to navigate, and I felt so prepared throughout the process! This was my first bra purchase online, and it made it so easy. Aerie shows models wearing the bras in each size-- Not just the typical "model" size! This way you can get a better idea of how the certain bra will look on your body. Not only that, but the Aerie models are untouched. I'll be honest, it was a little shocking at first to see the models with scars and moles on their bodies, wrinkle lines, and even models that are curvier. But I really respect that. Women compare themselves to impossible expectations every day, but Aerie encourages young women to remain self-confident and healthy. I really loved that. It's real life!

Aerie also offers free shipping both ways on bra's! This lets the comfort of your own home be your fitting room! Aerie has so many different styles, sizes, and colors of bras. I really love the variety... Although it made it hard to choose which one I wanted to get! ;)

I had a wonderful experience shopping for a bra online at Aerie. Next time you're shopping for a bra, make sure to take advantage of the amazing Aerie Fit Guide. Be real, be beautiful, be you!

I love my aerie bras. I actually prefer them over my Victoria secret bras.

I buy exclusively aerie bras. They also have SUPER comfy bralettes and bandeaus which I wear fairly often. :]]] Love that company!

The dress is a little big in the bust but workable. This is a quality made dress. Excellent value for your money. I would not hesitate to order again.

I wish I could buy Aerie bras! They don't carry any in my size :/ I have to buy the few they do carry at Nordstrom online and even that selection is minimal unless I want nude or black! You're so lucky to have such pretty items to choose from!
