Last summer, Taylor Swift’s solid and striped swimsuits were the hit of the season. This summer (though it still seems to be ages away) it could be Aerie’s Super Scoop One Piece Swimsuit.
The affordable nylon one-piece has a scoop neck in the front, plunging back and sides, and a high-cut leg to let them thighs fly free. The $50 (now $40) dollar one-piece comes in an array of colors, and there are even versions with words like “Go Coconuts” and “Vacay All Day” emblazoned across the front. You can get it in sizes XS to XXL — with long and standard options, depending on your torso size. Aerie’s models have been rocking the look on social media, pretty much making the rest of us want to run to the stores to pick one up.
Iskra Lawrence, Aerie model and body activist has recently taken to social media to alert folks that it’s back in stock.

Women of all shapes and sizes have been loving the suit, and they’re posting photos to social media showing how they rock it. Some have even used their Aerie swimsuit to show their support for body positivity and diversity and work through any negative thoughts they may have about their own bodies.
“Whether my clothes accentuate my curves or make me look like I have none, I hope to feel equally as comfortable and confident regardless,” Instagram user @raidantlyray captioned a selfie of her wearing the piece. “The ED [eating disorder] thoughts are kicking in hard: ‘you’ll lose all you’ve worked for/you’ll lose your strength/you’ll gain weight/your clothes will get tight’. Although I am much closer to recovery (ed wise), the negative self-talk is still there… But as soon as I sit down or find myself bored, these thoughts come back. I’ve realized that I have to stop running from them. I have to confront them. I will not identify myself with these thoughts. They are not me. By telling that horrible little voice ‘No! You’re wrong! I’m actually f*****g beautiful!’, I am directly confronting the voice, and telling it that it cannot hurt me like it used to. It’s not easy.”
Blogger and Aerie Girl Dana Patterson shared a photo of herself rocking the piece in Lemon Lime Fusion to share her own journey to body acceptance, but to also remind people that the body-positive movement, though much of it focuses on those whose bodies don’t fit the mainstream idea of what is beautiful, is still inclusive of all shapes and sizes. “I get incredibly tired of the ‘curvy is better I hate those stick thin girls’ comments. Because that is NOT my message,” she wrote in an Instagram post last week. “We don’t just need sizes 2 and sizes 16 in campaigns, we need to see all sizes. We need to see WOMEN OF COLOR, not a white girl appropriating their culture. We need to see black girl magic, we need to see Latina girls, Spanish girls, Asian girls, along with Caucasian women. And don’t forget, body image issues and eating disorders don’t just affect women. They effect men too. We are ALL affected by the lack of representation in the media…Because fashion and style is for ALL women. Not just 2 categories.”
