From beach volleyball to boogie boarding for the fun of it, the Carve Designs Women's Catalina Tankini Top offers adaptive, athletic style and performance. The Catalina was inspired by Carve Design's best-selling Catalina bikini top, so it's no surprise that it can handle spiking the volleyball or a rumble with the waves. The four-way stretch construction moves with you, while the UPF 50 rating provides added protection from the sun's harmful rays. Additionally, the Catalina touts medium support and features a built-in shelf bra and removable soft cups for your convenience.

  • A sporty, stylish bikini top for the beach or pool
  • Four-way stretch construction provides unimpeded mobility
  • Shelf bra and modesty cups for convenience and comfort
  • Medium support offers an adaptive fit
  • Made in the USA

Great for certain body types

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

I have to return this one because it's not great for anyone larger than a C cup. It becomes really revealing and there's plenty of side boob action. If that's your thing, then this is your top! But I wanted something I could chase kids around in and feel comfortable bending over and I didn't like how exposed I felt. The straps are comfy and it's flattering in the back and long enough. It is clingy, so be aware of that. I purposely sized up and it was still a little too clingy for my taste.

Hi Sharyl. Thanks for your helpful feedback. For something more supportive I recommend the Hana Tankini. See link below on BC's site. This still has a similar fit through the body as the Catalina, so if you want something that has ruching around the stomach area and great support I recommend for you the Avalon Tankini.
Thanks, Luisa

Soft and silky

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I picked this up as a gift and my friend was very stoked on the Mint Paradise color. The material was soft, supple and a bit baggy when in the water.

Finally, a tankini that looks great!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

Usually when I buy a tankini, it's either way too small and starts to ride up, or it's too large in the bust area and doesn't sit right. The Catalina Tankini top actually fits great all around!

XL Fits DD

    I like this top it I am a DD and it fits and supports well. I also like that it does not tie around the neck.

    How to Measure:
    For best results, take measurements over your underwear.
    Chest:
    Measure under your arms, around the fullest part of your chest.
    Natural Waist:
    Measure around your natural waistline, keeping the tape a bit loose.
    Hip:
    Measure around the fullest part of your body at the top of your legs.
    Cup Size:
    1. Around the chest, under the arms and above the bust. If the measurement is an odd number or a half size cup, round up. This is the band size.
    2. Around the fullest point of the bust. This is one of two measurements needed to determine cup size.
    3. Under the bust, around the ribcage. This is the second measurement needed to determine cup size. To determine cup size, subtract the measurement #3 from measurement #2.
