I work for American Eagle Aerie, and I wanted to update you guys on some of the new Aerie bras that have been released over the past year. Finding bras online that fit just right is tough, and sometimes bras even vary in size within the same brand — so we’d love to have you stop by an Aerie store for a personalized fitting. Check our website to find one in your area.
Drew: “The Party Girl”Coming in as a Double Whoa, Drew is the most push up that Aerie offers in a bra. She adds two cup sizes! Drew is very similar to the VS Miraculous bra, but in my experience it’s a lot softer and more comfortable to wear.
Drew does start at a 32AA; however, like the Aerie Emma bra, this one can be an awkward fit in the smaller cup sizes. There is so much padding that even on full A-cup breasts, it tends to gap at the tops of the cups.
For the best fit in Aerie Drew, you need to scoop your breasts up into the cups and let them sit on top of the bump pads for it to really sit correctly. This works best for larger cup sizes. If it were properly proportioned for petites, this bra could be outstanding.
Sofie: “The Softest”
As Aerie’s newest full-coverage bra, Sofie offers more coverage than Aerie’s original t-shirt bra (the Katie). No padding or push-up for this bra! She’s just lightly lined with an underwire. Sofie has a ballet back and wider, double-bagged wings so it lies smoothly against your skin. No sign of a bra at all under a t-shirt. It does tend to run big in the cups and the band, however. I don’t generally recommend this one for size AA/A cups.
Also, an update on the Brooke plunge push-up and the lightly lined Ella: both are now offered in racerback! These are Aerie’s first front-closure bras. This style always offers a little extra lift, which will be nice.
We are also now carrying soft-cup underwire bustiers and wire-free bralettes. The bustiers range in size from 32B-36C, but the cups are pretty shallow. A full 32A may be able to wear the 32B.
My personal favorite among the bralettes is the Vintage Lace. It has a wide band, which gives me a little more perk than going without a bra. It’s very flattering on a smaller chest, and when paired with the Aerie Vintage Lace tanga or thong it can be very sexy.
This bralette is still very comfortable to wear all day (it has a soft inner lining, so you don’t feel the lace). I even sleep in mine sometimes. These run in sizes XXS – XL. As a 30A, I wear an XS.
Hope this helped, ladies! If you still have any questions about these bras, talk to an Aerie girl in store or call our customer service line (you can find this number at Aerie.com).
