Today marks the official first day of summer, which also means your ’gram will soon be flooded with swimsuits, beaches, and vacation photos (if it’s not already). To ensure you look your best in your next poolside photo, we got Revolve’s talent relations manager, Alyssa Rara, to share her number one tip for posing in a swimsuit.

My number one tip when posing in a swimsuit is to arch your back until it feels ridiculous (trust), but you can’t do that without confidence. Above all, believe you look good, because you do! The best pictures are always the ones where you’re feeling yourself the most,” she shared with us. I can vouch for this, as I recently went on a trip with the Revolve crew, and this simple trick drastically changed the way my photos turned out. Just try it.
