So I was out shopping today when I passed an Aerie store. My cousin pointed out that the butt in the photo huge advertisement (second photo) had stretch marks. I was confused. After second look I realized that there were stretch marks. “Wow!” I thought, “I can’t believe they didn’t airbrush that out!” I wanted to take a picture but there were people sitting on a bench in view of it, so I decided to to go in and find the picture. Much to my surprise, she was not the only one displaying imperfections! Their slogan is “The real you is sexy.” In amazement I took pictures throughout the store. I’m sure they thought I was a creep but that didn’t stop me. I had to pass this along to those who haven’t seen it. My question is, how isn’t this a bigger deal? Am I weird for thinking this is so awesome? I even made a point to say “Wow, I have to take a picture of this, that could be me!” A sales associates just chuckled. But little did she know I was so serious.

I love the “no air-brushing” thing, but majority of the girls are still quite lean. Would be nice to include larger sizes; then again, depends on how large aerie carries in sizing I suppose.

Most of these girls have better abs than I do lol.

Real life vs Societal expectations

Wow..

Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

*Not-so-quiet muttering about how angling the breast toward an adult viewer is symptomatic of the (internalized/institutionalized) infantilization of western males, contributing in part to the inability of some to visualize women as entities with independent needs or wants, rather than object-like sources of nourishment/comfort that must ALWAYS be appealing and appeasing to them.*
