Closeouts. Not only does Carve Designs' Cali convertible bikini top offer superior UPF 50+ sun protection, it also livens up your beach look with adjustable shoulder straps that convert to a crisscross or standard back look.

I was looking forward to wearing this adorable top for swimming laps. I am 5' 4" and 98lbs with a 30 D bra size, and tiny shoulders. Almost all swimwear is too large for me. So, I was surprised when this top was too small. The xs is very tight fitting, and my breasts spilled out the sides. It also created back fat, which I have never experienced before. In addition, I doubt the suit would last long, as the material seems like it will breakdown quickly in chlorinated water.

I ordered XS for this and another bikini by Carve Design. The other top fits okay, but this one was 2 inches shorter in the band width than the other bikini top. I really liked the fabric and the design. But I had to give it away to a friend who is smaller than me,
Cons: Too Small
Describe Yourself: Intermediate
Pros: Seems A Good Fabric, Seems To Be Good Support

this is just a nice bathing suit top. It fits nicely and looks cute on. I got the plaid and really like the color/pattern. I saw that some of the posts said the cup was too big. I am very small breasted and got the extra small and it fits perfectly. It is actually flattering for small breasted folks such as myself (for once).

This product seems great. The material is really high quality, and for a great price! The suit has a good fit, and offers great support. Stays in place with movement, and is good for someone who wants to be active without compromising a cute suit!

This would be a great top if it was sized correctly. Unfortunately, I don't want to have to pay return postage for an incorrectly sized item so I will try to find a friend it might fit. I am very disappointed - my whole order is much too large. I tried the tops and bottoms by Carve and they all running at least 1-2 sizes too large. The cups are huge. This would be a nice top for someone very well-endowed or who likes a great deal of coverage, but you would still need to order a smaller size because the chest strap around the ribs is also way too large.
Cons: Hassle to return, Too Big
Pros: Good for large busts, Nice style and pattern
