We are one step closer to inclusivity in fashion with Aerie’s latest campaign.
The lingerie retailer is being praised for their new campaign that features models living with various conditions, illnesses and disabilities.

Women of all ages are being represented with their unique differences.
Individuals with arm crutches, wheelchairs, type one diabetes, Ostomy and Down syndrome are just some of the amazing models.
The new faces of Aerie have taken to social media to share their photos as a way to create a discussion about diversity and representation.
This inclusive and important statement is helping young individuals across social media celebrate their unique bodies.
This is not the first time this fashion retailer has preached a positive message. In 2014, Aerie launched #AerieREAL campaign as a way to encourage body positivity through eliminating retouching of photographs.
Everyone deserves to feel beautiful and representation in media will help us get there!
Absolutely amazing! The confidence of these ladies leaks out of the screen! Fantastic photos, beautifully taken showing ladies being their true selves 💗— Its Saco (@itssaco) July 11, 2018
