There’s no retouching, no fixing of blemishes, and no falsities here. These latest AerieREAL Role Models are all about body positivity and girl power, and gymnast Aly Raisman is one of the latest stars to join the campaign.
Along with body positivity activist Iskra, singer-songwriter Rachel Platten, and actress Yara Shahidi, gold medalist Raisman has joined forces with the brand to bring awareness to healthy body image and acceptance.
“Your character shows more when you don’t win and the way you handle it, rather than when you do win,” Raisman says. “People will always remember you for the way you act, especially in the hard times.”
Raisman’s signature pieces are all about bringing comfort to the undergarments.
“I’m all about comfort,” she says in the campaign. “Having pieces that make you feel confident and make you feel good — that goes a long way.”
From a racerback bralette, to a high-waisted boybrief and a buttondown seersucker shirt, her go-to pieces exude not only millennial pink vibes, but serious coziness.
“DREAM COME TRUE. Someone pinch me….. Beyond excited to stand strong with aerie as a new #AerieREAL Role Model,” she wrote on Instagram, announcing her partnership. “Together, we want to encourage girls to love their REAL selves. NO RETOUCHING. Share how YOU are an #AerieREAL Role Model with us! ….. Thank you @aerie for this incredible opportunity. AND thank you to my wonderful friends.”
