Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman is all side boob and a giant palm leaf, and she’s distracting Instagram. The 26-year-old former athlete and Aerie partner made her weekend post a rare swimwear one, posting to announce her new collection with the popular clothing line, but it looks like some of Aly’s 2.1 million followers were a little distracted. Aly, best known for being the 2012 “Fierce Five” and 2016 “Final Five” captain, was captain of her own ship here. See what’s causing the distraction below.
Scroll for the photo. If you don’t live inside Aly’s Instagram, the account documenting everything from the star’s gentle Pilates and adorable home gardening is more hoodies and yoga pants than bikinis. Except, seemingly when Raisman is selling her own swimwear collabs.
All piercing eyes and with a cute blue-and-white hair tie to match her ultra-tight swimsuit, Aly posed knocking the camera dead by an upright leaf, showcasing her Olympian body in a cliny one-piece with light floral prints and an azure sky palette.
The fierce shot which, despite not being a full-length one, wowed everyone seeing it, came captioned with mentions of Aerie – Aly, who is also an Amazomn partner and promotes vegan plant-based Silk Milk, wrote:
“Happy Sunday! I’m launching another collection with my @aerie family on 2.26! This collection will benefit @d2lorg just like the last one ? Stay tuned for more info… Excited to share the collection with you✨Have a lovely day ? #AeriePartner #goingOFFLINE.”

While a comment from Aerie itself reads: “Counting down the days!” not everyone, it would seem, had spotted the caption. A user replying “She’s sexy AF” was one, with another telling the gymnast: “Let me be your photographer.” “The most beautiful gymnast ever,” a third added.
The photo comes as Aly makes headlines for going unbuttoned on live TV as she appeared on “The Today Show,” here, talking about her retirement and mental health – Aly battles both anxiety and OCD.
Aly, who admitted being barely able to “walk” after a low period following the 2016 Olympics, is getting herself back to health with everything from meditation to her green thumb. Recently highlighting the latter, the Boston resident told fans:
“Doing something for myself today ? Don’t forget to give yourself some love today too! I love the process of watching a small seed grow into a big beautiful flower or vegetable!”
