Cruz Rashguard

I'm 5'5" and rocking my winter weight right now so I wanted a rashguard that's a little more forgiving around the midsection than the usual skintight numbers for an upcoming surf trip. This is perfect. I wear a size 8 and got a medium. The fit isn't too tight or too loose. It skims the body without being clingy. The material is soft and seems like it's of good quality. Love the half-zipper because it makes getting the top off and on easier. I know this will come in handy after surfing. This also has the added benefit of not looking totally like a rashguard. It could double as a workout top or as an extra shirt while on vacation. It's really thing and light. One thing that I didn't know when I purchased this top is that it's made in the USA. Love that! I read a review on another site that says the stitching fell apart after a few washes. I'm guessing that person washed it in a machine and dried in a dryer as this is what the printed instructions say. I think Carve Designs got it wrong with that one. I've never owned a rashguard or swimsuit that says it's okay to wash and dry in machines. The instructions always say to rinse off and air dry flat or hanging. After seeing the material I'd say do not throw it in the machines. I plan to treat this like my other rashguards and swimsuits -- rinse and dry flat -- and I think it'll last a long time.

I love this swim suit! I originally ordered a SM but it was slightly too big and so I order the XS and it fit great! I am 5'4" and 125 pounds.

Love it! Just wish I'd bought it earlier in the summer. I'm 57 yrs. old, 5'6", wear 12s-14s/large in most clothes. The size large suit fit perfectly. As a few others noted, the suit is extremely flattering, provides good coverage, and is stylish. I do mostly lake swimming, some chlorine pool swimming in winter. It's true, the straps don't alway lie flat, but not a problem for me. I received many compliments on this new suit!

The Catalina top is my favorite bathing suit. It stays in place for water sports. It is sporty, yet feminine. I own this top in several patterns but the Indigo Tulum might be my favorite color pattern. I highly recommend it.

Super cute. I have a larger bust (38 D) and it fit well, but I wish it had a little more support. The back of this is flattering even with some "back fat" hanging out. I'm tall, and have a little extra weight left over from a baby, but am very comfortable wearing this in public. I'd recommend it.

I find these bottoms very flattering. I'm 5 7, 133 lbs and not young. I do find that they pull down a bit when diving in. Remains to be seen if they will stay on while surfing. I like the fit better than Patagonia's sunamee bottoms.

Finally found the suit! Very nice quality with a print and fit that is both retro and current. Plus it looks really good on! Slimming through the mid section and enough coverage on the backside! This is not a matronly suit. The low back scoop gives subtle sex appeal. I felt confident running around on the beach and doing other outdoor water activities. Never once felt like I was having wardrobe malfunctions! This might help in ordering: I am 5'6 and 120lbs. 34-26-36 Usually wear size 4/6. I ordered a medium and it fits great.

The bottoms do not fit snug like more expensive suits. I would not recommend this. It's worth the money to not sag.

I really love the Indigo Tulum print but feel like the horizontal stripes make me look a little hippy (which I am not especially). So, this would be a great suit for a woman trying to accentuate or create curves but maybe not ideal for a truly curvy figure. I ordered a Small (I am 5'11, 130lb, 34C) and it fits really well and I don't find it to be particularly long like other reviewers mentioned but I expect that is due to my height. I did end up returning it for a size Medium, however, because I felt like the Small was really skin tight and I prefer a slightly looser top. The Medium is still nicely fitted in the bust but gives me a little room around my waist without being wrinkly or baggy.

I love the idea of the reversible print but the finishing wasn't perfect. Understandably, the seams have to be stitched somewhere but it looks much better on one side (printed) than on the other (solid color). I don't think anyone would ever notice because of the placement of the seams but if details like that matter it's nice to know. Fit was great - true to size (I didn't have to size up to avoid the bottom squeeze that lots of suits create). Not completely full coverage but flattering and stays in place, which is important for an active mom like me!

The seams on the edge are fairly strong and dig into my butt. The Tommy Bahama Pearl Solids Hipster Bottom and Soybu Surf Bottom have more gentle seams.

This is a very comfortable bathing suit. I bought it in a medium. It has ample room to cover your rear end and doesn't ride up at all. Also, the shoulder straps stay securely in place. Never had to adjust the suit in any way while wearing it and swimming. The only fault is that the pads inside the bra section drift around and I had to take them out.

This is a great bottom -- good back coverage with no moving around and slipping! It also holds up well over time. I wear it nearly every day, and it's in great shape -- including multiple weekly washings. Only issue is the duke lot changed from last year, so my new bottom does not exactly match my navy Curve tops from last season. Fits true to size.

15-yr-old daughter who swims and rows loves these bikini bottoms. Good coverage, styling, and they are secure! A very tough combination to master.

I love this swimsuit! It is made of a high quality material and fits so nice. I am 5'6" and 165 lbs. Size medium fits really well. The shoulders straps are a bit too tight but that helps keep everything in place and it is certainly keeper.

I LOVE this top! I am 5'7", 135 lbs, size 6/8, 36D and ended up with a Large. This top is flattering, supportive, and allows for a lot of activity without worry of an embarrassing flashing moment! I tried the medium, but it was a little snug on the shoulder for me, so I went with the large. It might be a tad big around, but doesn't ride up or anything. The material has a nice thickness to it. I liked that it is a halter style without having a tie around the neck which sometimes can hurt after awhile if you are bigger on top like I am. I ended up buying it in another pattern AND the Catalina Tankini version!

I live in Florida and wore it the other day for a full day of boating. It is comfortable and attractive, I actually got lots of compliments. I am a very hot natured person lately (56) and I never got hot. Sometimes these things are so tight they are hard to get off, but it slipped on and off easily. It's great and I'm online to buy another.

The crossed double straps and low, scooped back elevate this suit from basic to stylish. The bust support is not fantastic, but acceptable for this 50+, 34D. I would not recommend this suit to normal or long-torsos. I'm quite short-waisted and it works great for me. The binding and straps are dark-colored so they won't stain from sunscreen. The dandelions save it from being boring. Seems well-made.

Sadly not going to work. I bought this so I could train competitively and still get a normal tan line. I wore it one practice and the entire time, felt like the swim top was filling up with water, that straps are weak and allowed the suit to feel like it was falling off. Thank goodness everyone was busy swimming and not noticing my peep show.

I'm a redhead who burns easily, but loves to swim. This was the best thing I packed on my 10-day trip. I wore it every day & didn't have to worry about sunburns. Extremely light, comfy, quick-drying & flattering. Feel great wet or dry. Love the zip for easy on/off & adjustable neckline.

I love the color, fit, and quality of this rash guard. I used it everyday while snorkeling on my trip. I am usually a between Small and Medium but this runs big so the Xsmall was what I ended up with. I love the rouching and tie on the sides. very cute and can be adjustable to make it hang high or low depending on what you prefer.
