ok so i don’t know if you guys have heard about Aerie’s promise to never retouch their models/use supermodels in their ads again. I heard about it and rolled my eyes a little because they have notoriously tiny models but decided to check out their website because it’s my favorite place to buy bras - basically the only place i buy cute bras. So I went to their website and this was the first picture I saw. I literally burst into tears. I can’t explain it. I’ve never seen this body on an ad that wasn’t targeted at older/plus sized women, especially for teen underwear. Just seeing someone with belly fat, who’s absolutely beautiful… Someone with a stomach that looks like my stomach was really shocking and moving and I had a very real response to it that I wasn’t expecting. It’s sad that this type of thing can move me to tears because it’s so uncommon but I’ve never seen a belly that looks almost exactly like mine on an ad like this before.
