Let’s first jump into my mini-reviews of the best (and worst) Aerie underwear styles I’ve owned. I’ve tried a lot of different styles, but I narrowed it down to the most memorable fits, whether it was a good reason or not. Let’s get into it.
If you’re a thong lover, you need this lace thong now. I know thongs are notorious for being super uncomfortable but these are far from uncomfy.
This is my favorite thong from Aerie because not only is it super cute and they come in a bunch of different colors, but the wide waistband makes wearing them super comfortable. Sometimes they do bunch depending on what you’re wearing with them, which can be expected from any wider waistband.
I have so many pairs of these and wear them all the time. Moral of the story, if you want to buy any thong from Aerie, 100% buy this one.
This is my second favorite thong from Aerie! The only reason why it’s not my first is that I just recently purchased them, so I need more time to test them out. But they’re super cute and if you want a non-lace thong, this one is great.
What drew me to this thong is the high cut. This is a fit I’m generally attracted to throughout my swimwear purchases as well. So I figured I’d give them a shot and so far I have not been disappointed! I ordered mine in black, heather frost, and gatsby green.
This cotton string thong is basically just a g-string. If you want something subtle underneath tight-fitting clothes (and you don’t want to go commando) this is definitely for you.
I like this thong because it’s simplistic and stretchy so you don’t feel like you have a constant wedgie, despite the actual g-string. This is also a thong that comes in 5 different neutral colors. The fabric is breathable and in general, it’s quite comfortable for a g-string.
However, if I had to pick between this thong or one of the two above, I would probably pick the latter.
Okay, now we’re going to get down to business. I’ve purchased a lot of thongs from Aerie. A majority of them are great (especially the ones I mentioned above). But this pair right here, they suck. Don’t buy them.
They look super comfortable and I guess they are, to a certain extent. But if you wear them and wash them a few times, they will become so stretched out to the point where they will move around a ton when you’re wearing them. I do not recommend these at all. Period.
During the day, I wear thongs. I don’t step outside of my house in anything but, don’t ask me why. So the next few reviews consist of Aerie underwear that I wear when I go to sleep at night.
This Aerie No. 1 boybrief is definitely my favorite non-thong underwear. The band is stretchy and the cheek coverage is the perfect amount without being too cheeky or too boyshort-ey. The cotton is very breathable. I always love putting these on at night because they are so comfy!
I just bought this pair of underwear recently, so this is my first impression based on only a few wears.
I really like this bikini underwear! I love the ribbed details and the stretchy waistband. Plus, this underwear comes in some really cute colors, which I love. They are soft, stretchy, and comfortable. It doesn’t get much better than that. I don’t have a ton to say because they’re so simple but I guess that’s a good thing!
Out of all the non-thong Aerie underwear that I’ve tried, this is the one I dislike the most. I don’t hate it as much as the thong I mentioned above, but I definitely don’t like it.
This boybrief is made from their “Real Me fabric” which is described as “a buttery soft, lightweight fabric that molds to your body”. While I don’t disagree with that statement, I realized after buying these I much prefer cotton over any other fabric. This fabric slips and slides and is uncomfortable in general.
If you want non-thong underwear, i highly recommend one of the other two I mentioned above.
The Comfiest Aerie Underwear
This should come as no surprise. The comfiest Aerie underwear is definitely the Lace Thong and the No.1 Boybrief. I’ve purchased both for years and they have yet to let me down. 10/10 would recommend.
Is Aerie Underwear True To Size?
Aerie does run true to size. I wear a small cause #smallbootyproblems.
The only thing I noticed is that any red pairs of underwear fit a little smaller than normal. I’m talking bright red, not maroon or anything like that. But after working in retail and the fashion industry for so long, I’ve learned it’s common for certain dyes to make fabric smaller and tighter. It’s typically black and in Aerie’s case, it’s red.
Is Aerie No Show Underwear Good?
Meh. Yes and no. It depends on which one you purchase. I can’t speak for anything besides thongs because that’s all I’ve owned.
If you purchase this Aerie No Show Thongs, then yes! They are good. But if you buy the Aerie Seamless Thong Underwear (which you can read more about above in case you skipped it), you’ll be disappointed. Long story short, these undies stretch out SO much. I strongly dislike them and advise you not to purchase them. I know they are technically different because one is “no show” and one is “seamless” so don’t mistake the seamless thong for a good no show thong.
Do Aerie Undies shrink?
No! I’ve never had any of my Aerie undies shrink. I couldn’t find any information on if they are pre-shrunk, but I’ve never had an issue. If you’re worried about them shrinking, just air dry them.
Are Aerie Thongs Comfortable?
Here is how I feel about thongs in general. They’re like jeans. Does anyone really think jeans are comfortable? Eh, no. But do you tolerate them enough and get used to them because you love them? Yes.
With that being said, if I’m going to wear any type of thongs, they will always 100% be from Aerie. I’ve tried thongs from other brands and they barely reach Aerie thongs.
Overall, does Aerie Have Good Underwear?
The answer is, yes! Aerie not only has good underwear, but they have great underwear. There are so many styles that they’re consistently rotating with a ton of different fits, colors, and prints. Plus, for the price, you can’t go wrong.
There you have it, folks. I’ve been a die-hard Aerie fan for years and have gone through my fair share of undies from them. These are the best of the best in terms of what I like. I hope this was helpful for you and if you have any questions, drop them down below.
