Carve DesignsLanikai Short - Women's

Soft, lightweight, and effortlessly stylish summer shorts.

When temperatures start rising and the golden sun starts shining day after day, shed your pants and slip on the lightweight, summery Carve Designs Lanikai Shorts. These shorts offer the perfect combination of soft and smooth linen and rayon, and subtle details for effortless style and all-day comfort. The fit strikes the perfect balance of not too tight or too loose, the front sits slightly lower than the back for a flattering look that provides plenty of rear coverage, and the stretch ruched waistband hugs the waist without any uncomfortable squeezing. Ruching on the front pockets and a back button flap pocket add fashionable flair.

Favorite Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 6

These shorts are cute and the perfect length - my new favorite go-to short for the summer. I have an athletic build, but these have plenty of room and are super comfortable. (Who doesn't love an elastic waistband??) I like these so much, I bought them in a second color. Only drawback, besides the unnecessary buttons that other reviewers have mentioned, is that the care instructions say not to put these in the dryer. Of course I totally did put them in the dryer, oops, (and continue to) but they did shrink, and because they're linen, it is also hard to get the folded hem to do what it's supposed to without an iron (and well, if you have time for that...I'm jealous!)

cute and comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 4

These shorts are so lightweight and soft, they are about to be my go to all summer. I got these in a 4 and I'm happy with the fit, but might have been a little happier with a 2 in these (5'5" 125lbs)

Do these shrink after washing/drying?

Thanks for asking this question Michelle! These shouldn't shrink when washing and drying. To make sure of that just dry on low heat.

Comfortable and Cute!

  • Fit: True to size

The carve Designs Lanikai shorts are some of my new favorites, so comfy and versatile. I can pop them on in the morning and don't have to change them even when our activity changes, they are perfect for town, a hike, or just lounging around the house. The waist band and soft material makes them extra comfy. Length is about perfect not too short or long. Recently took them on a beach trip and the pockets easily fit all my nieces and nephews treasures. Definitely added these to the weekly rotation.

Soft, good length

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

I like these shorts, the fabric is very soft and they are the perfect length. The color is a faded rust that goes back to a lot of different top colors. I agree with the other reviewer that the buttons aren't too necessary, kind of wish they weren't there.

Cute, comfy, but weird buttons on back

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Size Bought: 8

I liked these shorts overall, they were cute and comfy and seemed nice and breathable for summer. However, I really disliked how much the button detail on the back stands out.

Thank you so much for your honest feedback Julia! I have a problem with anything on my back pockets as well!

Cute, Comfortable, Lightweight!

    I love these shorts! They aren't super short, but don't look too mature. The waistband is stretchy and very comfortable. The lightweight material is perfect for hotter days! These are my go-to shorts for the summer!

    Love these!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I was looking for lightweight shorts that weren't crazy short and these fit the bill. They are also super comfortable and have use-able sized pockets. Can't go wrong with these!

    I got them in a size 4. I was worried about them being too big since I usually wear a 0-2, but the 4 is great and I wouldn't have wanted to size down.

    Absolutely love these shorts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: 8

    I purchased and 8 and a 10 as I didn't know what size would fit best and I usually wear a large or 10 in shorts but the size 8 worked best for me. These are very roomy and just the perfect length for my larger thighs. Not tight on my legs and are great for dressing up a little with cute sandals. I order a light blue and dark blue pair.

    Perfect length
