Beach season is officially here, and that means you have an excuse to stock up on summery wares to get you through the season. But if you need some shopping guidance, we found your answer: Nordstrom has launched Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil, a hand-curated selection of every warm-weather piece you can imagine, including bikinis, coverups, sandals, and more. To coincide with the pop-in, Nordstrom created a swimwear guide with expert tips from the retailer's stylists, and we have to say we learned a lot.
Our favorite tip we gleaned? It has to do with an important detail you have might have overlooked when swimsuit shopping: ruching. Specifically, ruching on the back of your bikini bottoms is ultra-flattering if you have a smaller butt and want to appear a bit more endowed. (That said, it truly looks great on everyone.) The swimwear guide explains: "Showing more of your cheeks creates the illusion of booty. The ruching detail on this particular suit adds to that emphasis." Remember this the next time you're shopping for your beach look!
