Ive gotten to that age where you want comfort and ease in your clothes. This bra is great. Comfortable, supportive, and easy to wear. Great for work, life, workouts. Havent washed it yet and I expect the pad inserts to give me difficulty as I have a bikini top with the same thing and I curse it every time. Small price to pay for a great product.
I have health issues that cause inflammation and costrochondritis, and the this bra is the most comfortable I found. It doesn't press hard across the band and no clasp to dig into your back while being active. It provides the right amount of support too. Ive worn while hiking and playing tennis. Loved it so much, came back immediately to buy m... Read Moreore.
I havent worn it yet- but my wife really likes it!!! She says its a little snug but thinks it will relax with wear. She will be wearing it more as the weather improves and shes outside more.
We're so glad to hear she's liking it so far and we'd love to see her review when she's had a chance to wear it out and about. Our [product care tips](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html) should help to keep it in great shape for years to come. We appreciate any feedback she has to offer on the fit, sizing, fabric, performance, features, comfort and function. Thanks Victor!
The most comfortable bra
I'm not joking. This is the most comfortable bra that works under athletic clothes and work clothes. I wouldn't recommend it for a high impact sport, but it works well for climbing or hiking or something like that. I'm a size C and that does kind of feel like the most you can get away with in this bra.
Less supportive than hoped
Size chart for me indicated medium (5'7", 140 lbs.) but I think a large would have been better. The material under boobs isn't very sturdy/wide, resulting in less support than I would like (I wear 36B). My old versions of this bra seem to be more supportive. Old versions also don't have cup inserts, this one does.
Request for this bra without the racerback
I really like this racerback bra, and would like to request that you also make a version of it without the racerback, more for everyday wear, but with same cut and detailing... which is different from your Barely Everyday Bra. I do not find such wide bands underneath the cups comfortable (featured in the latter); they just roll and bunch up.
These really are great.
Compared to others I've purchased, the price was kind of high for these sports/casual bras. But after wearing them a few weeks, I think they are worth it. They are attractive, good quality, good fit and I love the new colors for Fall. They are a great weekend wear bra, though I wouldn't try to go running in one.
Flattering fit, great support, super comfortable
Favorite bra I have had in years! Excellent fit and support, and looks nice. I had a lumpectomy and accompanying breast reduction during breast cancer a couple years ago, and I appreciate having a bra that supports well without underwire, is comfortable, and is flattering. Great design - thank you!
I really like this bra. It is comfortable and versatile. I wear it at work and on my days off. It even offers enough support to wear it during a vigorous workout. It is also very flattering. I decided to get a size medium based on other reviews, and I think that was the right choice. I am 5ft6in and 140lbs.
Super comfy with discrete coverage
This bra is super comfy, I dont like underwires and dont want a bra strap to slip off my shoulder, this bra fits the bill, I wear it for work and casual, the discrete pads provide the coverage wanted for work, it doesnt slip off my shoulders and is comfortable wearing it all day.
I have been looking for
I have been looking for a comfortable everyday bra for ever. I am a 34 D and most bras tend to dig in and feel uncomfortable shortly after putting them on. This bra remains comfortable and provides the right amount of support through the day and it is perfect for low impact sports. I have purchased three and hope Patagonia doesn't change anyth... Read Moreing about the design - they are the answer to my prayers! Patagonia never disappoints!
I needed a moisture wicking, lightweight, comfortable bra that I could wear for multiple days in a row while hiking Mt. Kilimanjaro. I was thrilled with this purchase. The bra was never out of place, never wet/soggy, never itchy. It was a dream to hike and sleep in. I highly, highly recommend.
I have had two of these bras in size L for almost 10 years. I wear them frequently for walking the dogs, biking, skiing. Great low impact active bra. Great for travel. My older ones were starting to look a bit ratty and worn. So I decided to try a new one. Such a disappointment that the new style is skimpier and less comfortable. Fit was smaller ov...

Hi Hylah! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the changes. Feedback like this is crucial to improving things for future seasons. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Comfortable but could fit better
I am a fit 36B and sized up to a large although most Patagonia shirts in medium are a bit loose. The straps seem short and band around the chest a bit tight. I could probably take an XL which is not my normal size. Although this bra is comfortable it looks/feels a little small and Ive sized up!
The bra Ive been looking for!
Ive been looking for a sports bra that doesnt smash me, but also that looks good under regular clothing. Im a breast cancer survivor and the ability to add additional padding to one side enables me to have a more balanced look, too. Extremely comfortable all day long, easy to put on and take off, too.
Please please please bring back the old design!
I absolutely loved the old design. I have three from I think 2017 or 2018 that I still wear almost every day. They are finally wearing out and I bought the new design and am so disappointed. There just simply is not enough fabric. I am very thin with B cups and the band of a size medium barely reaches below my breasts. I am pulling it down constant... Read Morely. The straps are thinner too. It almost seems like I need a bigger size but it fits around me circumference-wise just fine. Im a pretty small person so I know I dont need to go up to a large. This is the only Patagonia product Ive ever disliked. Please bring back the old version, and soon! My three favorite bras are wearing out!
ONLY FOR PETITES!
I usually wear a 36C, I am 5'4, 145lbs of curve and muscle with a lil fat over me. I ordered a size L according to reviews for this bra even though the chart said M. It is still very tight around the band and chest! I wanted something comfy yet stable to wear to work and this is not it. It does not fit well nor is the fabric soft. If you are a... Read More girl with muscle, a little fat, or just big bones and curves this is NOT for you, trust me, I wish I had listened to the other curvy girls! I do not think an XL would fix the fit of this bra for me either, unfortunately.
Hey Shannon, we really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us on the Barely Bra. We're sorry to hear that the fit did not work out well for you, and we will be sure to share this with the design team. We do have some other bra options you can check out [here](https://www.patagonia.com/shop/womens-sports-bras). If you ever need specific garment measurements, feel free to reach out to our customer service team and we'd be happy to provide those to you.
Bring back the old version
I have several of these bras in the older version that I absolutely love. I purchased three more as my old ones were starting to get stretched out and worn looking. The new version is so disappointing! As other reviewers have mentioned, the fabric is scratchy and cheap feeling and the cut/sizing is nothing like the old ones. The fit is so much shor... Read Moreter that the band rides up uncomfortably under my breasts. I now have three $49 bras that I cant even stand to wear and I have started looking for bras from other companies to replace my old Barely There bras once they are no longer wearable. Im assuming the changes were made so that they are cheaper to manufacture. Customers are now paying the same price for a much inferior product. I expect better from Patagonia. Please bring back the old style!
Hey Amanda. We are sorry our latest revision of the Women's Barely Bra missed the mark with you. Its latest redesign was in Spring 2018 so we may be seeing another redesign soon and with your input, you help the design team know what works for you and other customers out there like you. We do hope that all revisions make for better products, but it can upset those who preferred the previous design. Just know, your satisfaction with these is guaranteed and we welcome you to mail them back to us for return. Click [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) to start your return.
I find this super comfy for low impact activities, as I'm on the bigger side. I wear it for yoga, hiking, kayaking, gardening and hanging around the house.

Comfortable, versatile and looks/feels amazing
This is the Only bra I wear now. I wear it around the house, as well as for mountain biking, hiking, camping, backpacking, traveling and everywhere else. With this bra, you don't need any others because it's ideal for personal use as well as activity!
Goodbye underwire, this is my new BFF
I'm a lean, 34A who does not enjoy wearing most padded bras for any activity. When I thought my go-to Active Mesh bra was being phased out, I decided to give this style a try. I was surprised at how comfy it is WITH or WITHOUT the padding. As a medical professional who lives in scrubs, I've actually gotten rid of all of my underwire bras ... Read Morefor this one! Now I wear one of these to work every day and I have never been better supported or more comfortable. I've also worn it for running and yoga - highly recommend!
Favorite backpacking bra
I am a 34C and found the M uncomfortable because I just spilled from the top. The L gave me full coverage. Big plus is that I can wear this bra all day without it creating a tension headache. My go to bra for backpacking because its lightweight, comfortable and dries quickly overnight.
Please bring back the old style!
This looks the identical to the old style (which I have been buying and wearing daily for years) but the cut is considerably smaller, and not in a way that can be remedied by sizing up. The band under the cups has far less fabric, making it ride up in a way the old style never did, and the straps cross the shoulders far closer to your neck making l...

I've lived in the old style, but this new version just isn't the same - gutted to have to begin the search for the perfect bra all over again, as this one is no longer it...
Best bra ever
This is quite simply the best bra ever. Comfortable fabric that can handle a little sweat. Stretchy. Works as a nursing bra for small-busted people. Provides support. Straps do not fall down. Very very comfortable. I have only two complaints: 1) I wish it were not so expensive, and 2) the straps are visible under any moderately wide-necked or low-c... Read Moreut top because of the weird V-shaped straps. Despite these minor flaws, this is the best bra I have ever owned. The Barely Bra is not even close to a comparable product because the straps fall down, it provides no support, and it creates a weird ridge when worn for some reason. So if you are torn between the two, get this one. For context, I wear a 36B.
Thought I Would Love It More
I really had high hopes for this bra, and expected to love it based on mostly positive reviews and testimonials from friends. However, I don't love this bra as much as I thought I would. Pros: -It's breathable and soft -It's mostly comfortable (still glad to take it off at the end of the day though) -No visible seams or lines under... Read More t-shirts Cons: -The straps are short and the elastic around the band isn't very tight, so it rides up a lot. I'm constantly having to pull it down. -My bra size is 36A and I purchased a medium. It fits around the band but the cups are too large, and because of that the padding makes a conical shape (like bras in the 50s!). Not super flattering. -The cut is higher than I expected. I thought it would be much lower so that I could wear it under tank tops and lower cut shirts. But that is not the caseit seems to dip down a lot in the pictures but in reality it doesn't dip down at all. Also, the seam at the top of the dip is very large and itchy/irritating. Sadly, I wouldn't recommend this bra to someone of my body type (5'8, 135lbs, 36A). Hopefully others have better luck!
Comfortable to wear, chest band and straps stays put - (forgiving of variable weight changes- 180-200#, 61. 38-40 B/C. Love the removable inserts for smooth coverage. Have worn this bra exclusively for 4+ years. Good elasticity 2+ years- still use old ones for less sheer shirts & round the house chores.
Love this bra, please make ones with straight straps
This bra is fantastic - comfortable, lightweight, keeps my look smooth, lasts all day. I can wear it climbing and it doesn't get out of position. But please make another version with straight straps (not the X style in back) so I can wear it with other shirts with wider collars without the straps showing.
Super comfy, shapely, mid-level support
For my 5'3", 130lbs, hourglass shaped-body, this bra is shapely enough for casual day-to-day wear, and also provides enough support + moisture wicking for my go-to activities: hiking + yoga. Ordered a small at first (my normal size) but felt a little too tight/short from shoulders to back, so opted for medium, which is a great fit. The re... Read Moremovable cups have stayed in place during washings too, which is an added bonus. Hands-down my new favorite addition to my underwear collection.
Most Comfortable Bra EVER!
I purchased this bra as a replacement for the everyday bra from years past that finally served its last day. This is an amazing product, so comfortable! I went camping for 4 days and didn't want to take it off. Dries quickly, offers nice support, doesn't dig into shoulders or under arm area, and looks nice under shirts. Basically the perf...

The fit rendered this bra completely useless
I took measurements based on the fit guide and orders accordingly. It seemed to fit putting it on. I wore it on my next 14er hike. I finally realized it slid all the way up well above my chest. I pulled it back down but it would never stay in place. Really bummed by this as I cannot wear it.
I feel like the sizing is off - this version definitely runs small, at least on me. I'm 5'8, less than 120#, roughly 32C or 34B. BOTH the small and medium are too small/tight on me. I have older versions of this bra - first in small, a later version in medium - both fit me the same, comfortably. I will try a large, though that seems almos... Read Moret illogical to me (and I'm guessing it will be big).
Hi Joanna, sorry to hear about the fit issue. Feel free to return or exchange and if you find the large doesn't work either, you're welcome to send that back in too. You can begin either process here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
comfortable, light weight
I really like this bra for hiking hours in hills. I barely feel it...My only negative and it's almost a question is when I wash it, the foam pads often slide over to one side....I have to move one back to the other side...not sure why they are allowed to do that vs. sewing a barrier between the two sides.
I have two of these. One from a few years ago (size L) and another one purchased recently (needed an XL). You may want to size up if youve had one of these in the past. Im 59 , 180#, athletic. The exchange was flawless. Patagonia can give lessons to other retailers on customer service. Thank you for being a solid stand up company we can count on.
Not enough support
I got this bra to use for working out and gardening. I am a 38C, and need a bra with more support than this one. I also didnt realize that it was a slip-on style with to adjustable closure. So, even though the color and material were nice, this wasnt for me.
Hi Thea, sorry to hear that the Women's Barely Bra wasn't giving you the support you needed. We want you to be comfortable and if the Barely Bra isn't working for you, please feel free to begin a return or exchange here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
Has a few quirks, but nice overall design.
Just as with previous designs, the tag is very scratchy and annoying when working out (even when cut off). To avoid this, I wear them inside out, but this model has a bulge of material in the front when worn inside out. Seems like could be an easy fix by Patagonia.
We're sorry to hear about the irritating label. We recommend [removing it completely[(https://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Clothing-Labels), and if you're not able to do that, we will be happy to help you return it under our Ironclad Guarantee.
Love the Barely There bra!
I ordered a large, even tho I am a small woman, because a medium was tight and I don't like things binding me.

Okay bra for light sports..
I needed a sportsbra that would actually dry quickly, fit well (I have broad shoulders, small cups), and this seemed to fit. But here are the downsides: straps arent adjustable so it rides up a bit. And biggest downside the front esp. is TWO layers thick, so it absorbs moisture then takes forever to dry. What I REALLY want is for patagonia to bring...

A tiny piece of fabric but that fits just right, for those of us who dont have huge chests and just want some basic coverage. Like, from 2007 or so.

Hey Jackie, thanks for the review on the Barely Bra. We'll pass your suggestions along to the appropriate team members. You might be interested in checking out our [Women's Active Mesh Bra](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-active-mesh-sports-bra/32107.html?dwvar_32107_color=BLK&cgid=womens-socks-underwear) in the meantime. It has more of a streamlined, simple design.
I stumbled across this bra at a local climbing store apparel sale and bought it on a whim. After wearing it for a few climbs and workouts, I immediately bought two more! The fit is extraordinarily comfortable and it works for both exercise and casual wear. I highly recommend this bra, especially for those of us whose bosoms are on the meagre side.
Love this bra for light to moderate impact activities. The material is supportive, but still stretchy enough to be able to easily take it off after a workout & there's enough padding to offer the coverage I want without feeling really bulky (& the pads are really easy to remove & put back in after washing).
The first 3 of these bras I purchased are perfect. The last 3 have stretched out at the band around my ribs so badly that the bra rides up under my breasts and therefore doesnt do its job. Maybe the manufacturer is using a different product.
Hello Sarah, we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with the bra and are sorry that half of them are not holding up. Our products are covered by the Patagonia Ironclad Guarantee so you are always welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) any items that you are not satisfied with.
I have 5 of these now!
These are my favorite ever. I'm an NPS backcountry ranger and I hike every single day. I wear these comfy bras daily in the summer and winter, and no matter how sweaty you get, they dry super quick. I'm an A cup, and I think they're great for a low support and comfortable option.
Not recommended for athletic build
I'm in that unfortunate size range between small and medium (5'4", 128 lbs) due to my athletic build. Bras are especially difficult because my band size is 34 (B cup) but my shoulders are quite broad, resulting in uncomfortable pinching in the armpit area. I tried on both a small and medium in the store -- the small felt properly snu... Read Moreg and the medium felt a bit too loose. The material itself is stretchy and forgiving, and I was hoping that this would help with the armpit pinching. However, after a week of hiking, the bra straps would not stop digging into my arm/chest (I had red marks and may have chafed if I hadn't lubricated the area) and the band kept riding up. It was difficult to ignore. I suspect this would be a great bra for someone who has narrower shoulders and perhaps a smaller cup size. Reading the reviews, I agree that adjustable straps would greatly improve the wearability of this garment for those of us with broader shoulders.

Please add adjustable straps!
Ive worn these bras for years, super comfy, but the straps seem to be getting longer with each new version. So, not really providing any support. Please, please add adjustable straps to the next model.
Hey Jean, thank you for the review on our Barely Bra! We double checked the measurements from the last few years and it doesn't look like the strap length has changed. If you'd like to exchange for a size down, you could begin that process [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
Straps are too short
There is a lot that is nice about this bra, but the straps are too short so it constantly rides up. That didn't work for me, so I returned it. I would love to see some adjustable straps here.
Hi Lori, thank you for taking the time to write a review. We're really sorry to hear to hear about the disappointment with the straps. However, the feedback is truly appreciate as its how we improve products for future seasons!
Good description of the feeling when wearing.
I also bought this bra in black. It fit much better than the beige. I think there may be inconsistency in sizing.

This is perfect for any no- or low-impact wear, from WFH to weight lifting. It's also great for travel.

Nice looking but not as well designed as previous year's design
I have four bras of this same design but from previous years. They all fit find. Were comfortable, did not ride up and did what I wanted them too -- fit well, look nice under clothes and be comfortable. This year I bought two of these bras. I had read reviews for this year's design that mentioned dissatisfaction with the new design, but though... Read Moret they might be over sensitive or something. This new design is very similar to the previous version of this bra in a-presence and basic design but there are differences that I did not expect from a Patagonia product. One good change in my view is that the bra is a bit scaled down overall. Initially I liked the fact that it fits to give a very natural look to the bust. Previous design gave more of a busty (if that is appropriate word) appearance. The new style is a bit more modest and I felt more comfortable with that feature. The bra felt like a natural extension of my body. But, this new design rids up a bit where the bras from previous year did not do so at all. This is very annoying for active use, yoga, kayaking, even biking or plain walking. The fabric though nice looking is itchy at times, especially this summer in the heat. My hope is that Patagonia will keep this bra in their line but look closely at the features of previous bras that made the chest band so comfortable and securely stayed in place, and reincorporate design elements, fabrics or manufacturing into next year's style. Otherwise I know that I will not be buying this bra again. Thanks.

I love several of the Patagonia bras, but I wanted one that bridged work/casual and more active wear. This one is perfect IF you get the right size. Based upon the reviews I read, I decided to order the Large, which was the right call. Typically I wear a M in Patagonia sports bras (36 B).
This bra almost hit all the pluses. The straps don't slide off my sloped shoulders, my boobs don't slip out like in some bralet style bras, and it gives the right amount of support, BUT add me to the folks who'd like adjustable straps. The straps are just a bit too short for my longer torso.
Imagine: a comfortable bra for hiking!
I dont like wearing super support bras for hiking. Ive had success with every other Patagonia product, so I thought Id try the bras. Im elated.

Appropriately Named Bra
I struggle to wear bras. Like, always have and always will. Being large around the rib cage but having a small cup size makes fit almost impossible and the tight bands drive me *nuts* beyond an hour or so. But sometimes I just feel like I need to wear a bra... Certain shirts, jogging, MTB, etc. My go to is usually to just wear a compression crop wi...

I honestly rarely care much about the stigmas of being braless or looking flat chested, but it's nice to have a flattering option for the times that I do care. Barely there is the only kind of "there" you're going to find me in when it comes to bras.
