On the hunt for the best Aerie Bathing Suits? These Aerie one piece bathing suits (and a couple two pieces) will totally flatter a pear shaped body and they're an amazing price!
Am I the only one who is totally obsessed with Aerie? Their messaging about real beauty, their decision as a company to not airbrush their models, their use of a variety of body types and skin tones in every ad campaign? Yup, I love it. And bonus? They make affordable items that actually flatter women with curves (especially us pear shaped ladies). Aerie one piece bathing suits are some of my favorites, and this year I even grabbed a two piece to try out. I wanted to share my picks from their current swim collection…..plus a few bonus items that I'm so glad I snagged.
The Best Aerie Bathing Suits (plus a few more items you need to own)
A few tips for any bathing suits for a PEAR SHAPED BODY:
- you want to draw the eyes towards your narrow upper body….a great neckline, a brighter or lighter color on top, and embellishments will do this perfectly
- find pieces that fit well and flatter your curves, you want to accentuate that small waist and midsection instead of hiding your body
- try different fabrics and patterns to see what feels best to you, I'm a fan of bright colors and stripes…..but you may like something different with your skin tone
Shop all Aerie Bathing Suits:
AERIE PLUNGE COLOR BLOCK ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT (size large): You guys have seen this suit a TON….I bought it a couple months ago. It's honestly PERFECT for a pear shape. I love that it's darker on the bottom, and draws the eyes upward. It has built in cups and great support. This may be my favorite of all my Aerie one piece bathing suits.
AERIE “THE ONE” PIECE RACERBACK SWIMSUIT (size large): I own this suit in both a striped version and a solid blue one. I love the stripes, the colors are super vibrant and fun. It's definitely a little higher cut, and this is an unlined suit.
AERIE LONGLINE BANDEAU BIKINI TOP (size medium): Yes, I even tried a two piece this time! And I have to say, I loved this cut. The bandeau top offered great support with the straps, and the bottom was a way more flattering cut than I expected. I even got a super cute matching kimono coverup that I'll get a TON of use out of this summer. So yes ladies, wear the two piece!
Other Aerie Items:
While they aren't bathing suits, there are a couple of other Aerie items that I absolutely LOVE.
AERIE MOVE COLOR BLOCK 7/8 LEGGING (size large): These Aerie 7/8 leggings are my go to work out pants. They're comfortable, hold up REALLY well over time, and are perfectly high waisted. As a pear shaped body type, one of my pet peeves is that my larger hips push down leggings as I run. I HATE having to tug at my pants mid race as they slowly migrate south. These? High waisted enough to stay in place.
AERIE CHILL HIGH WAISTED TIE DYE LEGGING (size large): These high waisted leggings are a softer fabric, and they're perfect for travel days or lounging around the house. I also love them for yoga or pilates classes. They come in a ton of fun colors, and I just ordered them in a second color. I wore them with a matching sports bra to an event recently and got a TON of compliments.
AERIE HAPPY CAMPER SWEATSHIRT (size medium): BEST sweatshirt ever. This sweatshirt is super soft, comfy and the perfect length.
