Ws Bottom Turn Top

True To Size
December 5, 2023

Great suit, color faded

I love this top and the matching bottoms. I especially loved the mauve color. However, the color bleached in patches after my first wear on the beach, with just salt water and not being left out in the sun. The top and bottoms are too spotty to wear now except for in the backyard!

Hey Dawn, thank you for reaching out. We're so sorry to hear how quickly this top faded, you're absolutely welcome to send it in for a warranty evaluation.

Great Fit

The fit is perfect for me to be somewhat active (snorkeling + beach/pool playtime with my dog), yet doesn't provide too much coverage so I end up with drastic tan lines. I also really appreciate the absence of clasps and the additional lining.

Great for an active lifestlye!

like a sports bra for swimming

This top works well for me - active swimmer, C cup, thin athletic build. But, the elastic around the ribs is a bit thin and quite tight., which is why I gave this 4 stars, not 5. I also appreciate having some part of the top that is adjustable to extend it's life as it inevitably will start to loose elasticity. But, can swim and dive securely ... Read Morewhich is great. Also, I wear it without the bra pads and returned them to the store.

Worst Iteration Yet!

Have the black top from a few years back and it's awesome. Went to local store to try on, in hopes of scoring a 2nd pair. Realized they changed the fit - SUPER tight now / runs WAY small, and the back strap (too skinny) rides up and is super uncomfortable b/c then it pulls down on shoulders. UGH! No Bueno, Patagonia! Go back to previous versio... Read Moren!!

My holy grail

I seriously love this product. I am 16 and have a somewhat large chest for my size and this bathing suit was my holy grail. My car was broken into and it was stolen the other day and ive been stalking this website waiting for it to come back in my size ever since. Out of all the things that were stolen this item is probably the most sickening one. ... Read MoreI would highly recommend this product it is flattering and so comfortable!!

barely there

great fabric, nice and soft. style is so-so. support is not there, the band is too thin, it must be wider, it slips upward all day, and is too revealing. these are supposed to cover me during water sports! swimsuit tops need more material coverage, I wish you would create some for adult women.

Cute design

I like the design and was flattering to my small chest. But unfortunately I returned it because it was very tight around the ribcage.

OMG! No more wardrobe malfunctions!

Love, love, love this swim suit top!! I bought two for my week at surf camp, and was so glad I did! No matter how I fell off my board or got washed about by waves, these tops stayed ON! So nice to just focus on learning to surf without worrying about my swimsuit top getting untied or riding up under my rashie!! (For reference, I am 5 ft 5in tall an...

I love this top. It

I love this top. It is a bit tricky because I am in between a sm/medium but this time went for the medium. It is a flattering fit but works great for active summer water activities-surfing, kayaking, swimming its my go to

love the design

Love the print and also love the design of how the top fits. I've long been a fan of halters, but sometimes those knots digging into your back can be problematic when driving to the beach!

Adorable, but if have any xtra skin below your arms

it cuts in and looks awful. Not comfortable. Must be completely hard bodied for this to look good.

Super comfortable and soft, very feminine. I can wear it all day.

Very functional swim top

This top fits great. I bought it for a rafting trip and I was able to swim and hike in it. It fits more like a medium support sports bra than a bikini top. I agree with another reviewer that the pad inserts are garbage. They had a weird shape and a weird feel, so I just removed them.

September 9, 2022

Athletic is cute

Great swimsuit design with a classic front v-neck/triangles and an unique athletic back! It stays in place and I don't re-adjust it throughout the day. I can lay on my back or in a chair without a knot digging into my spine like most swimsuits, which I really appreciate. I can be active without worrying about a boob slip too! I removed a star ... Read Morebecause the internal fabric shows on one side of the front triangle at the middle. Since the internal fabric is a lighter color, it stands out.

Supportive comfortable fit

This swimsuit top is a beautiful color, nice fit, and very comfortable for both swimming laps as well as lounging around at Barton Springs. I always take out the extra padding, but it still fits well and seems very durable.

September 2, 2022


Nice fit and functional. I can wear this suit to actually swim not just lay by a pool.

Weird pad inserts

I really like this top, except for the padded inserts -- they have a weird part in the center that looks like your nipple is showing even though it isn't... I'm not sure how to explain it. I think the pads just need to be re-made so they're flatter rather than with that bump in the center. Also, the pads kind of show through the mate... Read Morerial because it's a bit sheer. However, besides all of that, I still like this top and would recommend it. Very cute and functional.
