Aerie is continuing its mission of celebrating real beauty.

The American Eagle brandโ€™s latest campaign for its intimate apparel line features models with various conditions, such as Type 1 diabetes, vitiligo, Down syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer, and more. 








Not only are the women featured in the advertisements, but theyโ€™re also the models on the website for the articles of clothing. 

The beautiful images โ€” which send an even more beautiful message โ€” are receiving praise on social media, as many women are seeing themselves represented by a mainstream fashion brand.




Evelyn McConnell, 17, who uses a wheelchair, tells Yahoo Lifestyle that while she wants to see people who look like her in the media, she rarely does. โ€œSeeing someone who looks like me modeling for a prominent clothing brand is more special than I could ever explain. It reminds me that there are no limits on what I can do with my future,โ€ she says.
