Ever since Aerie made the promise not to heavily photoshop its models and feature all body types, the brand has been the focus of a lot of positive press. But great press doesn't always mean great sales.
Fortunately for Aerie -- and for women everywhere who want to see more campaigns of its kind -- body positivity has lead to a huge increase in sales. In 2015 alone, the brand's sales increased by 20 percent according to a report from parent company American Eagle. The #AerieREAL campaign helped push sales up by 26 percent in the last quarter of the year, a key selling time for the holiday season.
While Aerie isn't always perfect -- no one brand is quite yet -- it's making all the right steps toward including all women in the fashion conversation. Hopefully, more brands will see these results and realize that body positivity isn't just good for customers; it's good for business, too.
