Hey all, it’s Hip2Save Sidekick Chelsey!
I’m about to get real honest with all of you. (Gentleman, this post is not for you.) Ladies, I’m pretty sure most (if not all) of you will understand this – I have bra-blems.
You all know what I’m talking about. The too-tight bands, the not-tight-enough straps – and don’t even get me started on the underwire poking through. I have the worst time finding a great bra. Does that even exist? Until recently, the answer, at least for me, was no.
First, let’s talk about buying a new bra. Ordering a new bra online for me is never a good experience. I think, “Oh, those are so cute!” and then it arrives, and it’s something my grandma would wear or the cup sizes are completely wrong. Which brings me to going in-store. I don’t like getting partially naked in a freezing cold dressing room with bad lighting to try on a bra that someone else may have also tried on only to discover that it (and the 42 other ones I’ve tried on) don’t fit.
So what am I to do? I started looking for comments on H2S posts… which led me to Aerie by American Eagle bras.
This is the part where the heavens open up and the angels sing because I’m seriously in love with these bras. I wear the wireless ones, and they are so comfortable! Some days I don’t even remember I have one on, and they come in a wide range of sizes and styles, making them easy to recommend to others as well.
I love that some of them have the convertible straps so you can wear them with tank tops without seeing your straps. And, even the wireless ones provide support, just like a best friend. I know that some people love bralettes, and I would probably compare the wireless Aerie bras to a more padded bralette; however, they do now offer padded wireless bras as well. See? They solve all bra-plems!
Plus, and this is probably the best part – they’re affordable! I can generally score one for $10-$15 if I wait for a good sale or even clearance. And, did you know that Aerie offers a rewards program that includes a special just for their bras? If you purchase five, you’ll get one free! This is a great way to try out a more expensive style because you’ll be able to use it on any of the bras they sell!
Affordable + comfortable = bye bye bra-blems!
And, oh, by the way, I’m not being paid for this review. I just wanted to pay it forward! Thanks again for the recommendation, friends! I LOVE these bras! 🙌
