New Aerie models in wheelchairs, with insulin pumps show off bras as Twitter cheers  4 Months ago

Source:   USA Today  

Aerie is putting their money where their bras are.

The American Eagle brand, which has long had a no-retouching policy, is doubling down with a new #AerieReal campaign showcasing models of all sizes and ethnicities, many with disabilities. Proudly showing off their figures in Aerie lingerie, there are women in wheelchairs and crutches; photos show women posing with their insulin pumps and J-pouches.

The campaign was released with little fanfare, getting the same treatment as, well, any other rollout might.

"@Aerie just sneakily released some of my photos!" wrote user @abby_sams. "Look at this disability representation people!!! Also look at me because I cant believe it's actually me so yeah."

She added: "A cancer survivor, down syndrome paralympian, me, and fibromyalgia (+ body hair). Their work in chronic illness and disability representation this campaign was REAL and AMAZING."

"Check out this wonderful campaign by @aerie & @AEO featuring women with illness and disability. We hope that other brands will follow suit and make their campaigns more inclusive and representative of the world we live in," tweeted non-profit Suffering the Silence.

"Seeing this from the @Aerie website means so much to me," tweeted @_madelynn101. "This model not only is beautiful, but has the same type of disease as me. I love seeing diverse representation."


"Yessssss I am crying happy tears to see this beautiful @Aerie model wearing her CGM and insulin pump! This is OUR normal living with type 1 diabetes and it’s so nice to see brands normalize it too," wrote @amandadilella.

"I literally cried when I saw this today. Thank you @Aerie for making my daughter a little less self conscious about her diabetes," wrote @Mizz_j_smith.
