Over the last few weeks, we’ve been keeping a close watch on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — and our readers have been following along. But if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by our full list of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale deals, we’ve pulled together a list of the top ten items our readers have been buying — most of which we’ve written about before, including our favorite (and rarely on-sale) electric tea kettle and stretchy Calvin Klein boxer briefs. You can find our full list of picks here, but if you see something you like, don’t dillydally: Stock is going fast, and the sale ends this Sunday, August 8.

This Natori bra is an Anniversary Sale favorite three years running thanks to its lightly lined cups, plunging neckline, and wide size range. One personal stylist even goes so far as to call it “the unicorn of undergarments.

It’s hot out there, which may be why readers have been gravitating toward this cooling cotton quilt set. It’s still in stock in four different colorways, though act fast: Sizes are limited, especially in certain colors.

We aren’t sure if readers are buying these seven-inch Nike shorts for weight lifting or lounging, but one avid gymgoer told us they “never sag” while working out and have a “crucial but rarely seen interior back pocket” that’s perfect for keys and other small necessities.

As we wrote in our Nordstrom Anniversary Sale roundup: “It’s actually rude to not put your newborn baby in a onesie with cat ears.”

If there’s ever a good time to replace your (likely sweat-stained) white T-shirts, it’s in the middle summer — and when they’re nearly 40 percent off.

When our readers aren’t wearing a Natori Feathers Bra, they’re wearing this racer-back bra from Nike. DanceBody founder and CEO Katia Pryce says it’s supportive enough for medium-intensity workouts and provides just enough coverage for smaller busts.

From $140

Back in 2018, we crowned this electric kettle the best (actually stylish) option on the market thanks to two handy features: It holds water at your temperature of choice for up to an hour and has a built-in stopwatch for counting the extraction or steep time.

Readers also stocked up on everybody’s favorite Calvin Klein boxer briefs, which one fan says never ride up and “last for years.”

These oversize sunglasses from Quay Australia — one of our favorite stylish eyewear brands — will last much (much) longer than your typical gas station pair.

And finally, we’re certain this waterproof, budgeproof eyeliner from Stila — a Strategist writer (and reader) favorite — will stay intact during even the most soaking of summer showers.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
