I love this top, and I want it to work for me. When I first got it I put it on and it seemed perfect, I even wore it for a while around the house to make sure it was good. I couldn't wait to wear it, but then when I finally did wear it I found out that it in fact was not perfect. With very little activity, like golfing, this swim suit top did not stay in place, it rose up so high that it was not covering much at all anymore. I tried tying the straps tighter and I tried loosening them, but still the same thing happened. I really won't be able to wear this top for anything besides sunbathing unfortunately :( I think it fits poorly because I have an athletic build with a small bust, and I am tall. I bought an extra small because of my small bust and it seemed like the right size, I don't think the issue is with the size of the suit, I think it's just that the style doesn't work for my body type. I really do love how it looks when it is in place, I really wish it stayed in place.

I love that this swim top has the functionality of a light impact sports bra while still being cute with the back strap design. Only downside is it's very hard to tie and get the straps tied correctly by yourself.

I got this top on a whim cause I needed a swimsuit fast. My bust does not like to stay in bikini tops, and this one was perfect. I even ran in it!! :) made me very happy. hopefully it will make others just as happy!

I wear a 32C and bought the small but ended up returning for a Medium which fits much better. The small did not provide nearly enough coverage.

Not only is this bikini top super cute, but it is very comfortable and great for people who are active in the water!! Love it!!!

I just bought an xs Prana bottom in black but didn't like the Prana swim tops. I decided to mix brands and this top works perfectly. I am petite and often have trouble with tops being too baggy or riding up. So far this one seems to stay put and fits nicely.

The material is very soft but almost too stretchy for what I was looking for. I don't believe it would stay in place while swimming or surfing.

I love this suit! I am active in the water and that is exactly what this brand is about. It has a super cute fit while still allowing me to be active, the best of both worlds. I also got the matching bottoms and the set together is so adorable. I like that you can pick the right top and bottom for your body.

I LOVED THIS SUIT- BUT NOT THE FIT : ( Super Cute! The Fabric is super soft and comfortable. The actually size of the bra Front is great and had nice coverage. Unfortunately, I just couldn't make the suit work for me. In order to tie the back tight enough to stay on, the strings were totally distorted and pulled my skin uncomfortably. When I loosened the straps to look cute, the front lifted up and down all the OFF when I moved my arms. Not very good for coverage for any activities but sunbathing. I really need my suits to stay on and hold me in while paddling, boga-ing, or other water activities. I almost always have to size up for swim suits, but this one was so stretchy you may have to size down to make it work. Super Cute Design, needs more support underneath.

Hi Sarah Based on your height and weight specs I would guess you would indeed be a Small in Carve tops. We do run a little bigger and definitely consult the size chart before choosing an item, and if you are in between go down in size. Sorry this didn't work out for you but please try the Small and let us know if that feels better for you. Luisa (rep)

Absolutely love this top- great fit, support and the color is vibrant to boot. I'm a 32D/DD and the medium is great, could've probably worn a small because the band is a little big but it still works well!

My wife and I bought this top for our 16 year old daughter. Living in Costa Rica we go to the beach frequently and she needed a new bathing suit. This is perfect fit for a 16 year old, it covers enough without making her "feel like a grandma"... she loved the color (Namotu) and the fit.

This top was perfect for a light day of SUPing at my local reservoir. It held up to the challenge of movement without showing my goods, like some other tops do. The sizing was spot on! I'm a 32C and a medium fit great!

I usually wear this top under my wetsuit surfing and for random activities on the beach. I like that I never have to worry about it coming off--the tie-back allows you to make it super secure. Might not be for larger busts but I have a C cup and it fits great. Great sporty top that still looks cute and not like I'm wearing a full on sports bra.

So cute but no support

Familiarity:

Fit:
Runs small

The good: it's highly adjustable and the pattern for this top (tulum) is adorable. The bad: it does not provide support at all. It seems like it needs an additional band under the cup. The ugly: major wardrobe malfunctions while on the river (parts making appearances!). I believe this top would work well for an A or B cup. For reference I'm a 36 D and tried both the large and XL with no luck. SO cute though!

Adjustability

Carve Designs makes some of my favorite bathing suits. They are really well made and cute. I love that you can dial in a custom fit with this piece. It's a great choice if you're looking for a top without too much coverage that will stay put playing in the waves, surfing, kiteboarding, etc.

FANTASTIC top!

I just came back from Costa Rica and this top was my favorite. The criss cross ties in the back hold everything in REALLY well, and it did not BUDGE in the ocean! What I love about it is that it stays in place and is SEXY. Carve swim uses the best fabrics period. I love every style I have gotten from them! No fading, pilling or sagging!
