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.

I am 5’8” 160 lbs with broad shoulders. Ordered size L. This is the best rash guard I have owned. I never cared for the super tight surf style rash guards. This is much more comfortable and flattering. The gathering does a good job of disguising my little belly pooch.

Thought seemed a little cheap in terms of fabric, but is easy wear cover up for me. Like the style.

I was looking for a short sleeve rash guard for vacation and this fit the bill perfectly. I love the 1/4 zip so I may catch a breeze when I get warm (which is also why I was looking for short sleeves). I like the ruching on the sides to give this a more fitted look and some style. Great blue color, I would love to see this in more bright colors and patterns. This is a KEEPER!

I love the pattern - unfortunately in my late 50's I felt I'm a little old for the style and sending it back. However, for you younger gals - it's super cute! You can wear it tied or untied in the back. It will look great with a bathing suit or white shorts.

LOVE these shorts. They look so good on. I wish they were a tad longer - at 5'11 they are a bit short but I love the blue color and the fit so I'm keeping! I'm between a size 10 and 12 and the size 12 fit perfect.

This felt tight for its size, though I used the size chart. The color is different from the online photo -- the contrast color is more like an orange than a pink.

I love these jeans! I have a smaller waist and larger hips and thighs, so always have issues with pants that fit my thighs and hips, but gap at the waist. These do not do that--they are fabulous! Do be sure to order a size down (I usually wear a 6 and ordered a 4 and they fit great). I love Carve Designs' clothese and these jeans did not disappoint!

In general I liked the cut and fabric, but the elastic waist was up too high for me. I’m 5’7”.

I love this dress! Very forgiving style for those of us who are past our prime. Super comfy. Can be dressed up with boots, or down with flip flops. 190 lbs 5’7” and the L was fine. I like the little string belt, but it does look nice without it also.

The removable bra cups in these tops are a huge annoyance, I couldn’t even try them on without the cups folding over on themselves, one of my biggest pet peeves...returned!

Love the stripes! This top feels supportive and like it will stay put. The only downside (and why I'm considering returning it) is that it has underwire, which I don't see in the description. But maybe that's why it feels supportive and like it will stay put.

I am 5'-8", 135 lbs and rather flat chested. This is the oddest top, two different strap options: From middle- looks ridiculous/ From sides- way to close together or with no straps the whole thing would just fall right off... No matter how you try to wear it, it is incredibly unflattering.

Really like this dress! However, the skirt is a bit narrow (with no stretch or slit) so if I try to take regular/big size steps I can't!

Love the feel of organic cotton on my skin which is why I keep coming back to carve designs. I like the detail on the neckline of this shirt. The small I ordered fits a little big but I think the looser cut is flattering. I ordered the black and am thinking about the blue. Every year I add a few items from carve designs and they hold up well and make you feel effortlessly put together whether on a night out or on an adventure.

These jeans are super soft and comfortable. I'm normally a 4 and ordered the 2 and they still fit loose but not in a sloppy way. I actually dislike tight skinny jeans and feel great wearing these around town, to school, etc.. I think they're very flattering and have recieved many compliments on them.

I love the surf color and look of this top but not the bottom slit at the front. From the waste line down to the bottom of the tunic there’s a slit. I feel that slits would be much more flirty on the sides of the shirt. Sending back. Thanks Zappos!

I thought the fabric was rather heavy for what I was looking for. Also the pattern seamed masculine to me. the back round is black, but the pattern creates a blue/green/grey overall effect. The fabric is soft and cozy. the sleeves are capped sleeves but actually have a rolled t-shirt look to it.
