I was debating between an XS and Small for size. I ended up ordering an XS and it was tighter than I was expecting but not impossible to get on and off. It provides the coverage I want and I’m not worried about it slipping up or down. I’d be curious if a Small would fit better around my ribs, but I didn’t want to go through the hassle of a return/exchange. For reference, I’m usually a 34 A in a bra.

My wife love it!
It fits perfect, pretty comfortable. Great choice for swimming and exercise, and also looks nice. The fabric is soft and very easy to wash.

Fits Like An Athletic Bra!
Like my title suggests, this piece fits like a sports bra and performs like a bikini. Its soft and perfect. Love the bottoms that go with as well.

This is a great swimsuit top for women who have active beach excursions or water adventures. It's comfortable and stays in place while moving around. I have a size 34 chest and the small fits perfectly.

I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. Here's her take- This suit is super cute, and it's held up after a couple of uses. It stays put, and I love Carve's designs.

Med Was Too Small - Ordering Lg
I followed everyone's suggestions and ordered the medium - turns out I need the large - 36D. Exchanging! The top itself is super cute - I really love it. Hope the large fits right. Will update my review once received.

I followed the size chart and this was way to small. I have a 36 chest and bought Small, though I guess Medium would have worked. I fit into it but it was extremely tight. It was a cute pattern and good material but the fit suggested that I wouldn't be satisfied with a Medium either.

The top was true to size, I'm returning for one size larger, also the "flowers" in the pattern happened to be placed in an awkward placement. Hopefully the larger size wil be a better fit and have different pattern placement. Very soft material and beautiful feminine print.

Just The Thing!
This top was just what I had been looking for! A sportier look with good coverage, but not enough coverage to feel like I was just wearing a plane old sports bra. The design is awesome, it doesn’t wash me out when I am not as tan and looks great when I am tan. It is great with movement, stays close to your body but is a comfortable fit without any mishaps. Removable pads make for an easy cleaning; they don’t move around when you are wearing the suit so there are no weird padding flips. I wear a 32D (Victoria’s Secret bra so the D is more like a B) and I wear a medium in this top.

First off, follow Carves size chart. It's spot on.So, II said this product runs small, and that is just compared to other brands. I am usually a medium, but in Carve, I am typically a small. I am wearing a medium top in this photo. It is fine and looks good in this photo, but when I am standing up, the medium covers everything completely, there is no cleavage or bust. There is a little extra fabric, so I think the small would be more supportive and a little more revealing. My bust measures at 37

Love this bathing suit! Fit is very comfortable and allows for activities that you can't do in most bikini's! Has good coverage and cute patterns as well. The lining can be removed in the bra top, which I find slips around in most bathing suits and this one a little, so I took mine out. It still looks fine and doesn't show anything unmentionable. Top and bottom run true to size. Love this suit!

Perfect for Water Sports
This racerback top is super comfortable and supportive. It also stays in place so it works really well for swimming laps, beach sports, diving, and other activities where you want good coverage and for your top to stay put. It's also great for muscle-relaxing hot tubbing. I have the mosaic/anchor (blue) and I think the color is more vibrant in person as compared to the photo Backcountry has for purchasing.

Get a size smaller
Definitely get it in a size smaller than what you would normally wear. They didn't have a small in the print I liked so I tried a medium and it was too big and didn't offer much support. The fabric is nice and I really like the cut- cute but sporty.

Great for beach activities
If you are looking for a set of bikinis that you can actually do stuff with (not just laying around and tanning) - these are pretty good. The fabric is extremely soft and they have just the right amount of coverage. I didn't have to worry about anything hanging out. I use them to go swimming with my dogs and running at the beach today. They are very comfy to have on - even post beach.

Great for SUP'ing, Surfing, and Kayaking
Such a cute and functional suit for any water sport you choose! Great fit, fabric, and shape for all water activities. This top and any bottom options from Carve fit true to size - great buy from a great brand! be sure to check out their board shorts too!

Great Fit and Very Comfortable
Cute patterns/ colors make this a great go to top. Snug fit keeps you feeling secure on land and in the water. Fits well and you could wear the top all day and be completely comfortable. Wonderful value for the price.

i purchased the mint paradise colour, i love the print. very summery. the racer back and feel of the fabric is great. the straps are a little loose after only a few wears. i will need to sew these back for more support. The fabric and make of the product is really good, I'm impressed with Carve as i don't usually wear their swimwear.

Great mix of sexy and secure!
I've had this suit for a couple of seasons, and have surfed in it, used it for SUP, and I can testify it stays in place, looks great, and is my fav all time suit. I'm buying another, maybe two, tom stockpile! I am a 36d, no problem with coverage. I have it in an L.
