Why We Love Aerie:
"Aerie Real" is a body image campaign that was launched by aerie in spring 2014 in response to an announcement by American Eagle in January 2014. AEO released news that it was going to discontinue using supermodels and digitally retouching its models to encourage positive self-image. The Aerie REAL campaign features models of various sizes, shapes and skin colors, along with showing their beauty marks and tattoos. The Aerie Real movement includes an online bra guide that showcases cup sizes 30A through 40DD worn by models with similar body types. The personalized shopping experience further includes a “Real Girl Talk” hotline with style and fit experts. They have also teamed up with Emma Roberts to further this campaign and provide a positive role model to younger girls.
As part of this campaign, aerie became the first national retailer to sponsor the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA). Aerie is the leading sponsor of their national walks awareness program known as "NEDA Walk". The initiative raises funds for educational programs and spreads awareness about eating disorders. NEDA holds 65 walks every year in cities across the United States.
This campaign has also had massive amounts of success reaching all types of young women under the Twitter name #aeriereal
