It’s often said that every well-curated wardrobe includes a range of elevated, core basics. While that may be true, it’s also important to have a full collection of intimates — after all, these act as the literal foundation to your outfits. And with a collection of underpinnings also come cozy loungewear pieces to go with — providing you with the ultimate wardrobe for those much-needed and well-deserved moments of R&R. Few brands tackle these two categories quite as well as Aerie — the intimates line under American Eagle. However, for those who want to branch out and discover other brands like Aerie, there are definitely options worth knowing.
The brand Aerie has already made a name for itself with its cute (and comfortable) selection of bras, underwear, and other lounge-worthy essentials — and if you’ve been wearing the brand, you already know it’s hard to beat. That said, if you're looking to expand your horizons, plenty of brands have items that are as classic as Aerie’s staples. And once you discover these, you’ll feel as if they were missing from your collection the entire time.
