Ws Upswell Top

Weird Fit

I read the reviews and have to agree. Others had weird bunching at the top, mine had weird bunching at the sides.. .. I am a S/M chest and these cups are completely filled. The sewing seems uneven along the bottom seams as well. Oh well. I'll make it work but if I had paid full price for this, they would be returned.

Not fond of it

I bought this because it was on sale and it looked like bikini tops I've bought before (and loved)...but it fit really strange. Other size mediums work well for me, but this one was weird in that the cups seemed baggy and the back straps slid around. hard to explain, but really didn't like how it fit. Even though I bought it for really ch... Read Moreeap, I'm paying the $5 to return it. Bummed I have to pay return fee. Anyway, I am now seeing other reviews that sound similar to my experience. I guess you get what you pay for.

Extremely wonky fit

I agree 100% with what others are saying about the weird fit. Instead of sitting flush against my body, the cup parts puff out on the outer sides, leaving huge gaps. I tried tightening it, and the whole top began riding up in the back, and the bottom part of the cups began popping up. However, I'm fairly small chested, so this could just be a ...

Definitely runs small!

After reading the reviews, most people said this top ran small. I am a size 6 in just about everything I wear, and I am a 34B. The size chart of this top said I would be a small, but I ordered a medium. So glad I did because the cups have good coverage and the straps are adjustable. The style of it is naturally revealing, so I am planning on wearin... Read Moreg this during relaxed boat days with minimal movement.

Bad design

Strange cut that fit me very badly. I wear a medium in Patagonia merchandise except for this item.

Weird fit + design

I wanted to love it, but the design and the fit are so weird - the back sits high and it doesn't give much support due to the strap design.

Less Secure Bikini Option

This bikini top is great but keep in mind unlike so many of the other styles of Patagonia's bikinis this is not as supportive. I love this suit for a mellower day on the water or under a wet suit without have to worry about a tie strap around my neck digging. Overall would purchase again!

I didnt care for the

I didnt care for the color. It was not jet black. I wanted to mix and match it with black bottoms that I have. Slipping the shoulder straps through the back ties was not good for me. Felt like the top would pop off in the water. The fabric and construction were great. I guess I could have tied the shoulder straps in a traditional triangle top manne... Read Morer.

Runs super small

I ordered a large (am a size 36B or C) and it was TINY. I then ordered and XL and it was similarly super small. I've purchased a lot of bathing suits from Patagonia, but the size on this is way off.

Hi Laura, thank you for sharing this feedback. We're so sorry that XL still didn't fit you right! We'll reach out to you about some options.

This bikini top is odd. If you are small breasted it flares in an unattractive way on the sides and the whole thing rides up. I tried endlessly to make it work with adjusting the straps and cups to no avail.

Hey Susan, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're sorry to hear the fit on this bikini top did not work for you. We're not sure what you mean by flaring, but if you think a size down could fix the issue you're welcome to begin an exchange [here]( If you'd rather return, you can begin the process on that same page.

Not great

This is TINY. It does not stay in place and the back rides up significantly. I really wanted to like this swimsuit, but it was not going to be fit for the water.

Hi Sophia, we're bummed to hear that the Upswell Bikini Top won't stay in place. We do have a similar bikini top, the [Women's Focal Point Bikini Top]( It has thicker band under the bust that could help with the riding up. Check it out, it might be just what you're looking for.
