Olympic gymnast Ali Raisman shows off her stretching skills in a low key way while sharing a tennis skirt throwback to promote Aerie.
The 28-year-old Fierce Five members continue their high-profile partnership with the clothing retailer, which has already brought collaborations and continues to prove popular.
Aly posted a shot over the weekend and on her Instagram Stories that made headlines in 2021 for ushering in tennis girl vibes – balancing on one leg in a thigh-length miniskirt and also encouraging fans to use her ‘real’ voices – all tiling into the #AerieReal campaign.
The left side of Aly’s photo showed her stretching forward in a dark green sports bra that matched her pleated skirt.
The Massachusetts native wore her long hair tied back as she posed confidently on the grass, with text to the right:
“alyraisman your voice is powerful and your story matters.”
Beneath it, the brunette added: “Use your #aeriereal voice! @aerie continues to remind us of that.”
Also fronting Aerie’s Real campaign was a country music singer Kelsea Ballerini. Both Kelsea and Aly were photographed without any processing or filters for their Aerie campaigns.
Aly Raisman happy to be real with Aerie
The original photo is from October 2021 when Aly posted a color shot for her 2 million+ followers.
“I’m so excited to continue this amazing journey with my @aerie family! This campaign is about being the real you and encouraging people to speak out! Your voice is powerful and your story matters. Tell us why you are #AerieREAL on Aerie.com and you could be part of our next campaign. I can’t wait to learn about YOU! #AeriePartner,” the gymnast wrote.
Aly Raisman says she was inspired by the Aerie work
Speak with Harper’s Bazaar Speaking about her Aerie work, Aly revealed:
“I’ve been very fortunate to have worked with Aerie for about four years and every time there’s a campaign it’s really great to meet new people and hear their stories – it’s inspiring.” The Face of Silk Milk continued, “It’s really important for images to be what they really are – not retouched – because I think it’s really hard to see an image like that [heavily edited] and creates an unrealistic expectation of what people should like.”
Elsewhere, Aly is making headlines for releasing her second leotard with Sylvia P. The collection is for children.
Aly has also fronted retail giant Amazon in the past and is currently the face of Modern Fertility as well.
