Hey babes! Welcome to another month of loving the swim you’re in with Aerie because self love never goes out of style. To keep the positivity going, share your unretouched swim photo with #AerieREAL @Aerie. For every post, Aerie will donate $1 (up to $50k!) to NEDA, a non-profit that supports those affected by eating disorders. If you read my post last month you know how important this campaign is to me. ❤
I typically tend to stick to black or darker swimsuits, but Aerie had some bright options that I absolutely had to try so I stepped out of my comfort zone in their Striped Trim Longline Bandeau Bikini Top in a size XXL. For those who prefer not to go strapless, it comes with straps that you can attach, which I’ve chosen to do. I matched with their High Waisted Belted Bikini Bottom also in a size XXL. This two-piece comes in other colors, but this teal looked soooo pretty and it’s perfect for a day at beach!
Of course after stepping out of my comfort zone, I went right back in it with their Tie Cutout One Piece in black. But I didn’t totally jump in, I merely dipped a toe because this suit has a perfectly placed cutout right in the middle. I say perfectly placed because it could still be pulled up to my waist without anything falling out at the bottom. I’m wearing an XXL, but I have a feeling I could have sized down for this one. Nothing felt out fo place, I just prefer my one piece swimsuits to be a little more snug. This Aerie suit is fun when you may not be ready for a pop of color, but you’re still down to show some skin!
