Carve Designs® is an apparel company focused on fashionable and functional water wear, surf, and lifestyle collections for women. The company was founded in San Francisco by two female surfers and athletes who were tired of squeezing into junior's clothing and were also bored by too many shades of khaki. Carve Designs has dedicated themselves to designing and manufacturing a colorful, fresh, and unique active apparel line that fits real women.

Mindful of the environment in which we live, Carve Designs uses sustainable fabric as often as possible and uses certified organic cotton. As a community member, Carve Designs also donates a portion of their revenue to the preservation of oceans and beaches.

The women of Carve Designs are determined to push the boundaries of outdoor apparel and prove that functional can be fashionable and well-fitting. The clothes are designed to be as inspirational and versatile as the women who wear them.

The shirt ran large. But, I decided not to buy a smaller size because the fabric was tissue paper thin. A camisole would show underneath it which would take away from the style of the shirt. Returned it.

High-rise shorts where have you been all my life? Ordered these in two sizes because I am between sizes on the chart. The smaller size zipped up but the larger size looked better. These have heavy whispering creases at the crotch, more pronounced in real life. The black color is not as splotchy as it appears in the photos. Would've kept it but there was a defect in the dye on the front of the leg that would've driven me crazy.

I usually wear a 10 but I think I am between sizes with Carve. The 10s were ok looking but a little too tight for comfort. They are cute but I think a larger size would be too baggy. These shorts are ok, but with that fit not worth the price. I am 5'8" and 169lb.

I liked the rashguard fit and look except it was too long for me, even tightened up. I am 5'3, 134 lbs. So large was fine but too long.

I'm not sure why these shorts have such a rave following. People get obsessed with these. They are fine. The material is pretty thin and cheapy feeling to me. I do like the 6" length, which is really hard to fine. Fit true to size for me -- perhaps slightly tight in the thighs. Okay shorts but not worth the price or obsession.

I loved this top but I had to send mine back. I fall between a Medium and a Large. I got this in the medium b/c large wasn't available and it was just barely too small. If it had adjustable straps it might have made a big difference. Had to send it back b/c it was just too snug in the chest (38C).

These didn’t fit at all like they look in the photos. They were much baggier and looked really big around the hips. Too bad, because they seemed comfortable. Back to Zappos they went.

I listened to the other reviewers and went down a size but the smaller size fit super snug. I have to return the smaller size for my regular size. I don't recommend going down a size unless you are in between sizes and closer to the size down or if you like your shorts very tight. The shorts are very nice though -- I look forward to the regular size.

Maui 6" Shorts

Pros: quality mid-weight denim with nice stretch, beautiful color, perfect pockets (you can fit your whole hand in and there is even a special place for your thumbs!), and perfect length (6" inseam). Cons: There is only about a 6" difference between waist and hip measurements, making these almost a straight cut. The waist measures 35" (!!) for size 10, and hips measure 41" (their size chart lists 29/30" waist for size 10 and 39/40" for hips) The straight cut leaves a huge gap at the back waist for me, since I need a curvy fit. A 4" zipper makes these on the lower end of mid-rise while I prefer a higher rise (to prevent muffin top). I also prefer a higher back-rise for full coverage of my fuller behind; I'd love to see Carve Designs offer something for us women with hips/butts larger than our waists. Front rise measures 10", back rise 13.5", on size 10. For reference: I'm 5'4", 138 lbs, waist 30", hips 40". I'm giving three stars for the pockets, fabric, and length and minus two stars for the fit (since these might be just perfect on a different body).

True to size! I loved the style and the fabric is really nice, compared to some other swim skirts I tried on. It's definitely one of the shorter ones, but I actually preferred that

I love the top. Is great to protect the chest from the sun, and should be very secure. The only thing I hate, is that my nipples are seen because there are no pads. I am going to keep it because i love it, but i wish it had a little pocket for pads for those of us with big nips! To be clear, the actual material is not see through, but the outline of the nipple is what is seen.

Very comfortable- true to size, super soft fabric, great length. The only thing I didn’t love was the added creases in front but they mostly ironed out.

I’m shocked people say these run 1-2 sizes larger. I bought a size smaller than I normally wear because of those comments and they were so tight! I have to return them for my regular size now. Maybe if you’re very close to the next size down or like tight clothing then you can go down one. Other than that these are super cute.

This will work! It’s not too thick. I was afraid it would be too thick and that I would get hot and sweaty when wearing it. I’m about 5ft 5 in, and this fit a little long on me. It’s easy to adjust the length, though. The only thing I don’t like about this rash guard, is that it comes up too high over my neck. Maybe I’m too short for the size I got. I wouldn’t be able to fit into a size M, I’m too busty. But the length would’ve been a better fit for sure.

This has no support for breast and the underwire sticks out and looks terrible. That’s why I didn’t bring it on vacation and am going to return it.
