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!

Initially I was thrilled to wear this shirt; however, there are some drawbacks. First of all, the material is very thick. I like a thin, black jersey. The material is more like a sweater (sort of). It's difficult to describe the fabric. The armholes are quite large (I have small arms) but I didn't notice this until I had worn the shirt many times (so it is not obvious). Overall, I love this kind of a shirt for traveling: small pockets, stretch, slightly longer length, roll up sleeves, nice buttons.

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.

Great fit wet & dry for splashing about with kiddies, but would not recommend for swimming/training as not fitted enough around waist and causes a lot of drag!

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.

The two carve dresses were thinner material than is flattering on a bit of a bumpy body, and the horizontal stripes, which aren't as pronounced in the picture than they are in real life, don't help my cause either. Returned it.

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!

I love this dress! It fit perfectly and comfortably. If you match the bust and hip sizes to the chart included, you should be fine. :)

Other reviewers have said that this cardigan is "tissue tee" material. I would disagree and say that it is a bit thicker than that. I would agree, though, that this is not a winter cardigan; it's more for the summer. Also, as a tall person, I would have liked a longer sleeve length. Otherwise, I love the comfort and look of this cardigan. I mainly bought this for the organic cotton.

I absolutely love this rash guard. It is super comfortable. I bought the blackberry one and the tullum design is already cracking a bit, so that is a bummer. But functionally, it is great for activity, I took it stand-up paddle boarding, and UPF 50. It is sized for adult women, too. I tried on a bunch of rash guards (O'Neill, Volcom, etc) that were all designed/sized for preteens. It is such a relief to discover Carve Designs who is targeting grown-ups.

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.

I am a senior citizen and I love this shirt. I spend hours in the sun with grand kids at the pool. The shirt protects my back and chest but allows my arms to be free. The cap sleeve is comfortable and can be tucked under to allow full arm exposure thus avoiding the partial tan of a short sleeve shirt and allowing me to wear sleeveless styles without a tan line. The fit is great, not too tight or too loose. I wear a 10-12 in a dress and the large is perfect. The deep purple color is surprisingly neutral and goes with red, blue, and brown nicely. I would recommend this to friends.

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.

Love this item! I actually bought this item in a store so I knew that it was a "tissue" style. Then ordered another through this site. I was looking for a really light weight, cute "something" to wear over summer sleeveless clothing and this is perfect. I wear it over my yoga tops and I pair it with cute dresses. If you're looking for a sweater, this isn't that. It's more of a tissue t-shirt material.

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.

Very cute dress and very comfortable. I am a size 8 and ordered the medium. The elastic band is a little too loose and slips down. I wish it had an adjustable tie on it. Other than that, really nice dress for summer.

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.

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.
