What’s going on back there? In coordination with Pop-In@Nordstrom de Soleil, this month’s sun/swim edition of our themed shop curated by VP of Creative Projects Olivia Kim, our stylists offer wisdom about the back/booty sides of four key women’s swimsuits.
The drop one-piece (seen above) has made a comeback and is the must-have suit of the season. It’s sexy while also providing coverage. The drop in back tends to minimize your lower half. This fit is also easily worn for a night out with shorts or a skirt.
High-waisted bottoms recall the 1960s and tend to smooth out one’s midsection. Asymmetrical suits draw the eye toward the neckline and can distract from broad shoulders.
Showing more of your cheeks creates the illusion of booty. The ruching detail on this particular suit adds to that emphasis, and the bow brings the perfect amount of femininity into the silhouette.
Drawing attention to the neckline and shoulders, this fit is perfect for elongating your torso and legs. It’s also super supportive in front.
