So let me tell you a little something about this new aerie/american eagle campaign. Today I went to ae to get some desperately needed jeans. I loathe trying on clothes because they normally don’t fit how I want and pants that fit right are hard to find. But today, I got into that dressing room and saw this. The mirror says “The girl in this mirror has not been retouched. The real you is sexy.” Seeing this before I tried on my clothes made me start crying. I have gone through some real shit with bullying and hating my image and everything about me. I used to have a lot of trouble with self-confidence and had low self-esteem. But this company has made a difference because they’re not afraid to be real and show real women. They carry all sizes and even have the best fucking bras on earth. So as it turns out, I got in there, tried on pants, and they all fit! I was so glad to see this new campaign through the store. It was so uplifting, so I had to take a picture of that moment for whenever I’m feeling down. I can look at this picture and remember the feeling I had when I walked into that dressing room. I thought “wow this place is where I fit in, this is where I can get clothes that make me feel cute AND comfortable with my body.” It reminded me to love myself. Thank you aerie and american eagle. You are the ones girls should be looking up to.
