In addition to lingerie such as a wide variety of bras and other undergarments, the aerie line also sells dormwear, active apparel, loungewear, accessories and sleepwear. The aerie brand is sold as a shop-in-shop in American Eagle Outfitters stores, online through the American Eagle website, and in standalone aerie retail stores.
