Lingerie lines are notoriously not-so-great for boosting self-esteem. A few years ago, however, our collective groans were heard by Aerie, American Eagle’s intimate apparel line. The line famously decided to feature unretouched models in its ad campaigns in an effort to celebrate the inner and outer sexiness of all of us.
The brand’s latest #AerieREAL campaign is already making waves, despite the fact that its ads have yet to be released. But what we do have is a super powerful, body-positive video featuring 18-year-old “curve model” Barbie Ferreira which is ***flawless as hell.
Needless to say, her quotes about self-love are absolute fire.
Ferreira’s beaming confidence and poignant words are a powerful reminder that sexy doesn’t have a size — it’s in all of us.
Also, #WERK, girl.
