I received and Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue community. All opinions expressed are my own.
They say 85% of women are wearing the wrong bra size, although that number sounds high, It’s not that hard to believe. Think about it, most women got their first training bras and then moved up the ladder over time… usually playing it by sight. This is partially because we didn’t know any better and partially because the bra buying process is not always comfortable or easy. That’s why when I tried out the Aerie Shop Bra Guide, I knew it was something I had to share!
Like many of you, I love buying my intimates online… but in order to do that you must have pretty good knowledge of your bra size. On the Aerie shop they take you through a step by step process towards helping you find the right bra for you. You’re also able to choose from a great variety of bra types, from push up to bras for layering.
Step 1: Find Your Bra Size
Step 2: Filter Bras By Size
Step 3: Shop By Bra Type
It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3… the process was so easy for me to follow and I loved that I was looking at REAL un-retouched women on the guide. Let’s face it we don’t all have a models body, so it helps to look at real women as we shop. After careful consideration I chose the “lightly lined” Sofie bra in black. For women with fuller breasts, I definitely recommend doing lightly lined bras because sometimes push-ups can make us look bustier lol. I loved being able to see a front and back view of the bra in all the colors available, once I added it to my cart… I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best!

Once I received my bra, I tried it on immediately. And boy was I PLEASED! I can honestly say it’s one of the best bra fits I’ve ever had. It’s super comfortable, no bulging or feeling of cutting off circulation and it looks fabulous on me :). I definitely recommend trying out the Aerie Shop Bra Guide for your next bra purchase. Once we have the knowledge we must do what we can to pass it down to our younger girls too, 85% is just too high a number… and we need all the support we can get!
To get one lucky lady started we’re giving away a $25 Aerie gift card for you to give it a try!
