Carve Designs

Carve Designs Logo
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.

This shirt is great -- soft, comfortable, and easy to wear on hot summer weekends. I've already washed it a few times and it still looks good. In terms of size, I ordered two sizes down and it fits well. In other brands, I wear a medium. I'd ordered another Carve Designs top in small and it was too big. When I ordered this one, I went with XS and it fits just right.

This does not at all look like it was pictured. it was very shapeless and draped, not at all elegant. Also, the material was not soft enough for my liking.

Best.Shorts.Ever. I have thick thighs from lots of weight lifting, and struggle to find shorts that have enough room that they don't feel super tight when sitting down. These are 100% amazing. Roomy & light weight. They are very forgiving in the waist as well; I found them slightly large to true to size. I didn't mind them a bit loose myself; they almost feel like pj's!

This is an excellent rash guard. I’m a 5ft7; generally a size 8 or medium and the fit was perfect. Not too tight and not too loose. Great design. Love it

I got a small and than an x-small, which fit better. The tencel fabric is wonderful, but the style is just not flattering on me. A little too long and too much fabric. I'm 5'5, 125lbs.

I love this top so much I have ordered it in 3 patterns. I feel the fit does runs slightly small. I can wear a M or L and chose the L in this. I am 5'5, 150 and pear shaped with short waist and the top falls just wear I want it for coverage but not too long. Perfect for cooler beach weather or even as a swimsuit cover-up. The fabric is semi-transparent but the pattern prevents this from bothering me and provides enough coverage.

I bought this in black in my usual Carve size. It was way too big. The fabric was soft but the color was not a crisp black and the material is somewhat transparent.

I'm a grandmother, scuba diver and enjoy the beach. I wanted more coverage but not ready to cave to the traditional swimsuits with skirts for women in my age group. This bottom provides plenty of coverage while still looking quite stylish. I wear size 10 pants and jeans and have your basic Olive Oyl build with slim hips, no butt. I ordered the medium and it fits just right. Looks great with tankini top and I'm sure it would look great with bikini top too but those days are gone now.

I really like this dress. I’m 5’4” 125 lb with a 32D bust. The XS fit but the bust was a bit too small. The elastic on the waist is very comfortable. It’s not tight at all. There is a 2-3 inch gap from the bottom of the dress to the floor. It’s so comfortable and the material feels like a high quality cotton. I wear it as a casual dress but it can be dressed up. My only problem with it is the straps. They’re thin with a plastic adjuster. They feel flimsy and cheap. I don’t think it’s worth $85.

Very cute and comfortable, but I’m sending back because the color was more of a matte dark gray rather than black and I’m looking for a black black top. I actually love that this one doesn’t have padding and I love the simplicity in the shape.

I hate to admit it but I am now a senior citizen and feel like I want a little more coverage while not wearing the usual granny style suits with skirts. This swimsuit bottom is perfect. It's not too long, not too short and adjustable on one side. I wear 8-10 size pants and the medium fit perfectly.

Love this dress, but it’s too short! The material is extremely soft and the print and cut are very cute. I sized up based on reviews and the medium was a great fit except that it fell a few inches above my knees - another inch longer and it would’ve been perfect. I’m 5’4” and 126 lbs for reference.

Size runs somewhat small. Usually a large is roomy and loose, but this was more like a medium size. Otherwise the fabric and quality were good.

I am 5'3", 140 lbs, with an athletic build. I wear a C-cup and the XL didn't cover me up as I wished. Too low cut for me, but otherwise is surprising that I needed an XL. My street clothes are typically size 8 or 10 pants and medium tops. This top is going back, but it seems well made and is quite soft.

Nice fabric and length, but there's a quality control issue. One side of the short was sewn properly, the other side was crooked and created an awkward bulge. In general I think these are over priced.

Wanted to love these, but...the small was more 4 than a 6 and the medium was more a 10 than a 8! I’m a true 6-8 and needed a size between these 2 pants! The small was way small and the medium was way big! I’m 5-6, 150 athletic build! The pants are light and breezy and really cute..just the sizing seems off.

I am a size 4 or a small in tops, but ordered M as I like my swim tops to be a bit looser. The M is perfect. Love the drawstring too.
