Kelsea Ballerina goes “real” with her fans and has partnered with Aerie for their “#AerieReal Voices” campaign.
In a recent interview with Cody Alain, the “Hole In The Bottle” singer explained why the partnership made sense and why she was more than happy to post unfiltered photos on Instagram while wearing only underwear.
“Aerie is a brand. It’s about athletic wear, loungewear and underwear, and it’s about allowing all shapes and sizes of women to embrace our bodies,” says Kelsea.
“We live in such a culture which is so retouched and so filtered”, confides the singer. “I do. I’m the first to admit that I do. There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you can relate it to what’s real.”
Kelsea recently posted the results of her photoshoot with Aerie on Instagram, saying “Honestly if you’d told me a few years ago I’d be in a campaign in my underwear without any retouching … [RAN]… but I am proud of the personal growth I have had by recalibrating my relationship with my body and what I feel is healthy, strong and lasting for myself and my lifestyle. vulnerable? yes, but happy. thank you @aerie for accompanying me for the real ride. # AeriePartner # AerieREAL ”

“They take the picture, and it’s the picture, and it’s on the notice board in Times Square, as is!” Kelsea said. “Which, honestly, just for me and my personal journey with my body is a big deal for me, and I love being a part of this campaign.”
“How did you get to a point where you are comfortable with your body?” Cody asks.
“I’m growing up, Cody! Kelsea teases. “I’m getting older. I think I’m just redefining the priorities. My therapist told me,“ You have to learn to care more about less. ”I’m also married and happy, and I’m healthy. exercise all the time., I eat healthy and have a healthy lifestyle, so I think promoting that is a good thing. ”
