Ws Nanogrip Nireta Top

True To Size
January 9, 2023

Great fit

I alway struggle to find bikinni tops that fit, large bust, but not large body. This fit was great. Just wish it had been black on black.

December 26, 2022

Super comfortable and functional swimwear

34DD. Great swim top that kept everything in its place. Spent two weeks in Maui and used this too every other day and never had an issue. Might have been able to get the M but I appreciated the side coverage the L gave me. Removed the cups/padding immediately as they were not necessary. My new favorite top.

December 5, 2022


I love the fit of this. I have athletic shoulders and arms, and the cut is really flattering. It's so soft, which is a weird characteristic for a swimsuit but I like it. The material makes it a little hard to get on, but then it stays put nicely.

November 6, 2022

stylish, comfortable

Normally, I wear a 1-piece or a tankini swimming in rough water. I was skeptical about this top but wanted to wear sustainable swimwear on a recent trip. And wow! This top was phenomenal. It was the absolute most comfortable swim top--actually, I'm a former hot yoga teacher, and it was the most comfortable, supportive top of any kind I've... Read More ever worn. I LOVE it and can't recommend it highly enough. It also had ample support and coverage (removable pads that look normal and they stay put). Truly a beautiful top and they work well with the slider bottoms.

I love these tops! They

I love these tops! They provide support and sun protection for the décolleté area! Super flattering, plus I can paddle for miles.

Mandatory for kitesurfing

This is my second nireta top. I will buy one every year for the rest of my life, though my first one is still in great condition despite a ton of use. This top does not budge, is super flattering to my A/B size, provides sun protection right where I want it, and basically makes me feel like a warrior princess.

July 12, 2022

I ordered two of these-1fern

I ordered two of these-1fern print & 1 solid black. The fit was very different between the two . I kept only the print. The solid bunched awkwardly and seemed bigger and less smooth fitting overall. Not acceptable at all.

Thank you for this feedback, Dianne. Those two tops should have fit the same. We're so sorry the black one was off! We see you've sent it in as a return; please let us know if we can be of any assistance!

Great for pool and ocean swim

My third Nanogrip Nireta two piece suit. These are great for the pool and also under wetsuit for ocean swim. I've worn them on occasion for after-swim run when I didn't have a sports bra with me and the support was adequate. Probably not the most sexy, but great fit, stays in place, super comfy! I am getting ready to order a second suit t... Read Morehis season. (There is no box to check for "I use this product for" to indicate swim, and that is my primary use)

March 31, 2022

Great fit, runs on the larger side.

Great suit top!! 2nd one I have bought, keeps up to its quality standards.

March 20, 2022

Redesign this please!

I wish you'd design this specific bikini top in a way that allowed accessing the pads within the bra as they always loose their placing/fold over inside and it's really difficult adjusting them back in place

August 1, 2021

comfortable and secure

I've worn this mostly for paddleboarding and casual swimming, but also as a hiking top in a pinch. Pros: Great fit and high quality materials. I like that it's full coverage while still looking rad as heck! The grippy lining and soft cups feel secure and I don't have to worry about show-through/slippage. I got the cotton blossom pa... Read Morettern with pink and blue leaves (might have been discontinued?) and despite not being a pink person I actually really like the print. Cons: Strappy back is kind of confusing to get into and can take a minute to get all the straps laying flat. Like other commenters have mentioned, the cups are difficult to readjust. Sizing/fit: I'm a 36B, 6'1" with a long torso. The large fits well (medium might also work, but would be a lot more snug, just depends on your preference). Note, due to my body shape the bottom hem falls a bit higher on my torso than it does on the model in the pictures. The straps are also shorter than would be ideal for me- they pull up a little bit in the armpit area. Despite these minor issues I'm still happy with the fit as a whole.

perfect swim top but runs small

I've never found swim tops to be comfortable (either they're too tight or they don't stay in place) and have used a sports bra instead for many years. But have been spending a lot more time in the water lately and was getting tired of thick fabric that stays wet forever, so decided to give this top a try, and it's amazing. It&#x... Read More27;s insanely comfortable and the straps are actually long enough for my long torso, which has been an issue with every Patagonia bra I've tried of late. The only problem is that it does run small if you want it to fit more for comfort than compression. My regular size would have worked if I really wanted to keep my boobs locked down, but it restricted my breathing like a tight sports bra. The next size up still stays completely in place while being way more comfortable. I'm seriously amazed at how well the nanogrip fabric works - despite the lack of a tight chest band, I never worry about it riding up at all. I hope Patagonia doesn't redesign or discontinue these like they do with so many styles!

Does it's job, covers well and doesn't slip! Really flattering look

May 23, 2021

Flattering fit

This top is super flattering. Im 32B. The top fits but it would also fit in an xs too. It would just be a little more snug - better for water sports/surfing... very pretty color and the nano grip keeps everything in place.

May 6, 2021

Great fit, need clover print

I love the Nireta. And I saw the most gorgeous clover print in one of the other bikinis (that my girls could never fit in)....and hope you all can offer this in the clover print!

April 8, 2021

Nice little piece

I love the way it looks and fits . The only issue with it is just like everyone stated , the pad inside moves and the opening is very tiny to move it in place easily . other than that I like the open back and covered front. Stylish

March 27, 2021

Conservative top but odd cut

Stayed in place. Excellent fit but the cut was not right for me. The back straps pulled upward and the angle between my armpits and chest were not flattering. I unfortunately had to return it.

Awesome swim top

I love the nanogrip technology- it really works! This top is great because it covers the front but the back is still open and strapped. I never have to worry about falling out of it and its comfortable to wear all day for all sorts of activities!

March 11, 2021

Pads all askew

I really love the tiger tracks camo print, but unfortunately I just cant get the pads to lay right, and the back straps are a bit too tight and drag upward. I really wanted it to work, but will have to return it.

Great for Active Beach Goers

I bought this swimsuit top on sale because I wanted another top that I could surf, paddleboard, and play beach sports in. I am in my 20s, 6ft tall, about 160lbs, 36D cup with an athletic build and I love to stay active. I also live at the beach, so I am constantly on the search for good quality swimsuits that support me but still look my age and cu... Read Morete. I haven't used this top yet because its still winter...but just from trying it on I know that it will be one of my favorites this summer :)

Great for small chested women!

Im 56 130lbs and ordered a small. This is my new favorite swim top and in all likelihood, I will continue to purchase this top until Patagonia stops carrying it. As a small chested woman it can be difficult to find a swim top that doesnt accentuate the lack thereof, and this style makes me feel super confident. It is a tight fit, but I have both br... Read Moreoad shoulders and a large rib cage so I expected that when I ordered. The Nanogrip material is incredible. Ive worn this all day swimming, paddling, under a wetsuit... you name it, this bathing suit doesnt budge. I do agree with other reviewers that the modesty padding does need to be secured in some way (or you have to manually reposition it each time you put the top on), but it is truly my only complaint. Well done Patagonia! Dont you dare discontinue this style!

February 2, 2021

Comfortable but annoying cups

All in all this is probably the most comfortable bikini top I've ever owned. It is absolutely beautiful, very flattering, and I love how easy it is to move and be active while wearing it. However, I find myself looking for a different one purely due to the somewhat bizarre design of the cups. They bunch up easily and are very hard to adjust du... Read Moree to the small access holes. As others here have noted, it would be better to just have them sewn in - I wouldn't dare to take them out anyway for the fear of never getting them back in.

Great support

This offers great support with a wide range of motion for a bathing suit. I have a 34F bust and struggle to find the support I need for high activity sports and this top feels like it will.

November 2, 2020

Exactly what I was looking for

I wanted a sporty bikini top to swim laps in and this is perfect. The high neck looks cute, and is surprisingly comfortable. Nanogrip is awesome- keeps everything in place. I'm 4'11 with a sporty build and broad shoulders. Small fit perfect. Only complaint is that it's hard to readjust the cups.

September 17, 2020

Excellent Quality/ performance

Happy with my purchase! I got the black camo with the bottom swim bottoms to match ( waited patiently for them to go on sale !) yay!! For me top I got M bottoms S 56 140 lbs ( thanks Patagonia!

Great for small chested women

I've purchased two of these tops now and I couldn't be happier. I am smaller chested and it provides enough coverage and is very comfortable while be active in the water.

Classy and comfortable with good support. Agree with other reviews regarding the inconvenience of the pads that scrunch up and hard to adjust. Would much rather have them sown in so they stay in place.

September 6, 2020

Just perfect

I bought this as an active top for paddle boarding. The nano grip prevents nip slips and its comfortable. The tops stays where you put it. I dont think Ive worn another top since.

September 1, 2020

Perfect active swim top

Best surf/swim suit I've owned.

August 27, 2020


Wow! What the heck! This fits sooo well. I love the feel, the design, and most of all the fit! I'm 5'7 130 lbs and have always been weary of higher neckline bikini tops but this is so well-made. Can't wait to wear it to the beach!

August 21, 2020

Love this swim top!

Okay Im small chested and saggy after three kids but this suit has wonderful security for the girls without needing cleavage to look cute. It covers the upper chest which is great for sun protection since it doesnt seem to matter how much sunscreen I use up there - Im always burnt. We have a pool and live in it all summer. This my go-to suit and Im... Read More going to buy more! Thank you, Patagonia, for making the perfect swim top that ensures my upper chest stays protected from the sun!

Keeps the twins in place!

I love this top. Great support, doesn't slip, and it's very cute. I am 145lbs, 5'5", 34-36 D/DD and got a L. I got a L for my roommate and she's loving it (she's 32-34 DD-E).

July 13, 2020

Great fit, never moves!

As a mom running after two toddlers on the beach and at the pool, I needed something that I wouldnt be pulling on all day. The suit runs true to size and is so comfortable.

Excellent Quality and Coverage

I ordered this additional swim top to go with my Nanogrip top and bottoms as I wanted another full coverage option to wear while playing with my two small boys.

June 29, 2020

Perfect for Larger Cup/Smaller Band Sized Women

My typical bra size is 36E or 34F, and this is the very first swim top out of dozens I've tried that gave me full coverage and support without any awkward gaps, tight spots, or unflattering shape.

Extremely comfortable

I 100% would recommend this to anybody who has a small rib cage and larger boobs, really supportive and the nanogrip gives you that confidence without having to get a size up to accommodate your chest size. I am a 32DD and a small was actually comfortable and supportive.

Straps dig in a bit

This style is so great for activity without feeling frumpy. Only issue for me is my height made the straps dig into my shoulders on top. Afraid a larger size would be too big around.

April 29, 2020

Yes! Yes! Yes!

By far my most favorite fit of athletic swim top around. This cut flatters my broad shoulders and give so much sun protection when out on the water all day!! Great design.

November 20, 2019

best surf top ever!

This top is my new go-to top for all water activities! It is stylish, comfortable, and functional. The nanogrip technology is amazing; this top stays in place in even the gnarliest ocean conditions! Highly recommended.

love everything but the padding

I love this top. It's cute, fits great (5'9", 140lbs - size S) and stays on like it's glued to me! So what's keeping me from giving it that 5th star?

I love this top. The cut is very flattering. The front truly is full coverage, while the strappy back keeps it from feeling too much like a “mom suit.” The nanogrip lining doesn’t budge even when running around, chasing a toddler all day.

Perfect bikini top for water sports

The Nanogrip Nireta top is a perfect fit and provides good support for various sport activities. However, I didn’t like the paddings and removed them, as they were bunched up and didn’t quite fit.

August 25, 2019

Fantastic Comfort

Yes! A swim top that is supportive, covers everything, comfortable, no clips or strings! It is over the head simple.

Love love love this top! Was nervous about having enough support with the strappy back but the nano grip is amazing. Might run a bit bigger than I’d like. Overall great coverage, wish I would have bought this sooner in the season!

I loved the front and the full coverage. The design of the straps in the back, while cute, was very uncomfortable. There is a thick lump of straps that dug into my back.

My new favorite!

Nanogrip is amazing. Holds everything in place. The high neck front offers great coverage from the sun. Essential for being a boater, SUP’er, kayaker in Florida! I just ordered another in black. I’m 5’5”, 107lbs and a 34c. I ordered a medium and it fits great.

Great top for coverage and big boobs!

I love this swimsuit top! I like to be more modest when wearing a swimsuit and this one made me feel super comfortable in my skin. The coverage is excellent and it looks cute too!

Snug as a bug!

This bathing suit top is not great for tan lines but it is amazing for feeling secure and comfortable while doing all sorts of activities. I wore this top last summer while playing with my nieces at the beach. I ran around and got pummeled with waves and never once felt uncomfortable. I am normally a 32D and the small was a great fit for me!

March 4, 2019

Fits Very Well!

I got this top because I liked the style and thought it would keep everything contained. I wear a 32D and got this in a small. It fits wonderfully and I feel very secure!
