Though I was never able to get my hands on a pair, I was fortunate enough to try out the brand's new Shine Collection, which launched at the end of March.
The best part? Each OFFLINE item is designed to make people feel good about their real selves, and right now, everything is also up to 30% off.
Aerie first made headlines back in 2014 when it announced the #AerieReal campaign which featured unretouched models in response to backlash over Photoshop.
Today, the brand's motto is still "Power. Positivity. No retouching." There's even a section on Aerie's website to upload a photo of yourself keeping it #AerieReal and a gallery of images to scroll through.
Every time I pull on one of my Shine Rib items, I'm reminded of this. It also helps that they have a second skin feel.
Really, the Shine Collection provides the comfy, versatile and complimentary activewear sets you've been waiting for.
Available in sizes XXS to XXL, it serves a diverse range of bodies too. The beloved Crossover styles provide extra support around the midsection, define the waist with their V-shaped waistbands, and appear airbrushed on the skin.
Some of my favourite features of the Shine Collection include the 360-degree stretch fabric that molds to my body and feels just as great during a workout as it does when I'm simply lounging around.
As someone with a more petite stature, I've noticed that finding the perfect size of biker short can be tricky - if they're a smidge too big, they can look awkward in all the wrong places.
After learning my lesson with my last few pairs, I made sure to order the XS from Aerie and they fit perfectly (a note for my fellow tinies!). Plus, their seven-inch inseam falls at the perfect length.
Bonus: I can pair my Ribbed Shine Crossover Bike Shorts in "sycamore" and true black with other activewear pieces or an oversized t-shirt and some sneakers for a quick, casual look.
Speaking of versatility, I love the fact that the Ribbed Shine Twist Front Sports Bra can double as a crop top, and both the Twist Front Sports Bra and the Strappy Back Sports Bra offer major support without feeling restrictive.
