Carve Designs Pipeline Short -
Slip into the Carve Designs Women's Pipeline Board Short and tear up the glassy barrels from Rincon to Oahu. These loose-fitting boarding baggies give you all the freedom that the boys enjoy, unlike the butt-hugging hot pants that most companies pass off as women's trunks. Carve Designs applied a durable water-repellant finish to the 100% polyester fabric, so the Pipeline Short will be dry by the time you get to your car. An eight-inch inseam hits right above the knee.

Carve Designs Pipeline Short Reviews:


Really like these, but with a lot of activity on the water they start riding a little low. Roomy in hips, thighs and good lower thigh length without looking baggy.
I bought these for an active scuba diving vacation in the caribbean warm waters (i normally but guy's board shorts since the girl's tend to not be cut for a women's shape) and they were great. the only thing is that when dry they ride perfectly on your hips (great) but while being active in the water they do feel like they start riding a little to low -- not a big deal since i wear a bikini bottom underneath as well, but just a little annoying.

Great quality shorts with good coverage for us non-Olympic level funsters. I ordered a size-2 based on the other reviews, and also a try-on of both elastic and similar waist style Carve board shorts. Just looking at the these Pipeline shorts, I could tell they were going to be big. Actual measurement (using tape measure all along inner waist band) was 32-1/2 inches and definitely NOT a size TWO, no matter what the tag and shorts label says. Outside of an alteration, wearing them way low on the hips will not help either. Unfortunately, I'll be returning these otherwise cute shorts. Please Carve, a size-2 waist does NOT measure at 32.5 inches.

These hide my cellulite very nicely! They do run a bit large (I range between a 10-12 at 5'6" and 150#) and thought the 10 would be too small. However, when I tried on a size 8, they were too small, so I kept the 10. I also noticed they had a tendency to creep up, but that very well could have been me and not them. I did get a cheap pair of bikini bottoms to wear under them as I wasn't sure how comfortable I'd be wearing them commando. There's no built in brief and since they are a tad large, I didn't want to scare the kids.

I was nervous to buy these because after I took my measurements and checked the size chart, it said I should order a size 6 (I wear a size 10 jean) I was skeptical, so I ordered an 8 figuring they just ran big. however after I placed my order I went to a local store that carried the same brand (not style) and quickly realized they run small and I should have ordered a 12. has such an amazing return policy, I called them, they shipped out the correct size right away and e-mailed me a return label at no charge. I love the shorts and love!

I got these in size 2, their smallest size available, and they fit surprisingly well (5'6", 110LB). The fabric is super soft but feels substantial so they should last a while. I like there is no velcro - they always snag my shirt if I'm not careful. The ride is low, but not as low as if it'll expose your butt. Can't wait to take them out on the water.

This is so F'in cute! Love the gym short look! The best part of this short is how soft the fabric is, the generous fit (who wants a snuggy wet board short?), and the "no velcro" in the fly - instead they use a soft stretchy fabric that is "forgiving," especially at that time of month! Don't miss it!

I don't fit shorts easy (size four waist but larger than your standard size 4 thigh)... These not only fit muscular thighs, they also were way cute. But the real gem about these shorts would be the fabric. It is soft yet durable. Great board short!

These are cute board shorts. I got a small and they have a relaxed fit (not loose enough to fall off but they hang off me a bit)and hit me right at the knee (I'm 5'2). I think I will wear these for years.

These are really flattering and comfortable. I will probably wear them for more than just water sports! Yes, they do run a little large: I am normally a size 4 in shorts, and the size 2 in these fits perfectly.

Great summer shorts! I got these for trips to the lake and they are perfect for over my swimsuit. I'd recommend ordering one size larger than normal. I did & they are a perfect fit.
