Carve Designs Montecito Swimsuit

Simple Blue Purple One-Piece

Carve Designs Montecito Swimsuit | Simple Blue Purple One-Piece We've admired Carve Designs bikinis and board shorts, but with the Montecito we see what the label can do with a one-piece.

Carve Designs Bondi Bikini

Reversible Apricot Swim Top

Carve Designs Bondi Bikini | Reversible Apricot Swim Top Carve Designs takes inspiration from one of Australia's favorite beaches with the Bondi.

Carve Designs Women’s Cali Bikini Top

Convertible Palmilla Printed Swimsuit

Carve Designs Women’s Cali Bikini Top | Convertible Palmilla Printed Swimsuit Carve Designs gives us a little more versatility than the average with this Cali convertible bikini top. Don't go expecting anything too dramatic though. The shoulder straps simply move from a regular to a criss-cross formation. Perhaps I expected too much, but these movable straps don't excite me a great deal. Personally I think a convertible outfit should offer two distinct lo…
