Needs a hook in the back
Im 56 and bought medium because it fits me on top- 34C. I love the cut of this suit, its very flattering. Great color blue and cool that its reversible. BUT I almost tore a strap out of the seam taking it on and off just once. The strap that goes straight across the mid back needs a bra hook or a tie. How difficult it is to get on and off makes thi... Read Mores a totally impractical purchase. Im going to go to a local seamstress and ask how much it would cost to add a hook and if she can do it Ill keep the suit. Otherwise I need to return it.
I always struggle with buying swimsuits online because of the size variations so based off the mix reviews on sizing I bought a small and medium. I am 5'4, 132lbs and small chested. I would definitely suggest a medium. Suit is super soft and nice quality. Although it has a deep cut in the chest area the suit holds everything really well. It wo...

The colour faded and is patchy!
I wore this bathing suit in a hot tub, right when i got home i rinced, soaked and washed it but some of the colour bled out in the stomach area and it looks strange now
Hi Elaine, we're very sorry to hear about the fading on your swimsuit. This does sound like a warranty issue and we'd be happy to return or exchange it under our Ironclad Guarantee. You can begin your warranty return here, https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html.
dumb revealing design
would an olympian athlete wear this? why do you sell them with deep v's with tiny strings screaming "hey, I'm about to fall out of this!" thats all those little strings do, barely holding my body in.

I'm 5'7", 115llbs and the XS worked well for me. It's extremely low cut, so I wouldn't recommend fpr those who want a conservative style, or need a lot of support. I plan on wearing this to swim, and for surfing but under a wetsuit. I don't think the top would stay on well in waves. Very nice fabric...happy with this p... Read Moreurchase!
Suit fits great and is super flattering for my body shape. I’ve been using it more as a body suit with shorts or a skirt—I definitely wouldn’t surf in it without a rash guard, as I’m not confident it will keep the girls reined in. Overall I’m happy with it and would recommend it for light activity.
I really love the look and feel of this suit. It's a flattering, stylish one piece that is also super functional.

I've used it for boating, and stand up and prone paddling as well and it has worke... Read Mored great.

A collective cheer from small busted women around the world!
This swimsuit fits and flatters like no other swimsuit I've had. I love how the seams are finished on the legs so it gives a more seamless approach (rather than the quadruple butt look cutting off the skin and coming in all weird). The top is really where it's at. The way it's designed, women who have zero up top like me can all chee... Read Morer. It looks very flattering, not compensating for anything while still giving a balanced silhouette. My only beef is I bought the red and pink one, and it has no texture and no bra lining. So... NIPS BEWARE! You can totes see my nips when it gets cold. Still deciding if I exchange for a printed version or if I just suck it up and say, "Who gives a flying fart? We all have nipples. deal with it!"
Cute suit, but shows a lot of booty!
I love the reversible suit I just got from Patagonia, but it does show a bit more booty than I expected. I actually don't mind, because it keeps me out of mom-suit territory, but if you like a little more coverage, this one might not be for you. I also have a very long torso, so that might contribute to the booty-showing. I think the low-cut f... Read Moreront is nice, because it shows a little skin, but you don't feel like you are accidentally going to flash someone. It kept everything in place while I wrestled my toddler in the pool. I love the fact that you can wear both sides depending how preferred color/pattern.
Torso too long for short women
I really wanted to like the swim suit. The top portion looks nice, though the small was somewhat tighter around the chest than I had expected. Unfortunately, for me (5'3") the torso seemed long and I would have liked the leg opening to be cut a little bit higher and the crotch area a bit narrower. Unlike the Patagonia Bikini bottoms, it i... Read Mores so wide that it created folds.

Feeling beautiful and comfortable and I absolutely love it
This is the most soft and comfortable swim suit I've ever put on and all I've done is just tried it on right now. Didn't want to take it off. I swim 3 times a week and don't think this would be a good competitive/practice suit, but it's definitely going to be great for vacations/beaches/pools and allow for some casual lap o... Read Morer open water swimming. I ordered a small and think it might be a hair too big over time but for now, fit was perfect. I am 5'2" with a shorter torso (therefore more lower body coverage), wear a 32D, and am athletic hourglass build.
Love this and plan to get another
This suit feels and looks great. I'm 5'6", 155 pounds with a small bust/large back and long torso (suits can be tricky for me!) and the L is great for me. Love the cute low cut front and non-frumpy but good coverage butt. Sometimes the straps get twisted up when I first put on the suit, so need to take a minute to flatten them out. I... Read More've only worn the darker color out, but like the idea of a reversible suit. Will be ordering a second in another color soon.
wedgy to the max
Worst wedgy one piece I've ever experienced. Do not move around in this bathing suit or it will crawl up your bottom like crazy. The reversible idea is great in thought but terrible in execution making it slippery and impossible to keep out of the butt crack. If I'm lounging around in this bathing suit, it looks cool and sexy, but the min... Read Moreute I get up and move around, I'm pulling it out of my crack constantly. I would not ever purchase again unless that problem is solved. I'd prefer it not be reversible so that the fold over seam could help grab something. Fabric feels nice and the upper body is comfortable and cute.
Just finished my second week at the beach and I didn’t want to take this suit off to get on the plane. It’s feminine and functional. I haven’t felt confident in a bathing suit in decades/ever but this one made me feel good. It dries quickly and did stretch out a bit with a few wears so I’m glad I went with an L instead of XL.
Had to size up from my normal. 5’3” 115lbs w/d cups. ordered a medium and it was too snug. Had to order a large. I don’t have a long torso either. But with the large- most comfortable 1 piece bathing suit ever. Doesn’t pinch or squeeze. A bit sexy up top and skimpy in the bum, but the comfort makes it all worth it.
Is it possible to love a swimsuit?
5’7” 140lbs, I typically wear a Small top and Medium shorts from Patagonia. I was able to try on a Small in store and while the fit was ok the fabric was distorting the graphic. Based on other reviews I was concerned about how much the medium may loosen up when wet, but without having read comments I’m not sure I would have even noticed this. Fit s...

Worth the Money!
This swimsuit is amazing! I have had the hardest time finding any type of swimsuit that I actually feel good in, and when I put this on I smiled because of how good it looked!

The medium still fit me, but I would have been nervous about a wardrobe malfunction if I was doing any type of water activity. Love love love!
Loved the purple/fern print and fit, but large bust was over exaggerated
I have another similar suit and it is my favorite! I loved the look of this one and fit was good, but I returned for two reasons. 1 - My large bust was ridiculous in this, and 2 - the straps aren't adjustable. Often when I get suits wet or even just on different days I want a slightly tighter or looser fit, so adjustments are necessary for me.... Read More

I love my new one piece so much! It's really flattering and comfortable. I got the "Jurassic Ferns" pattern and it's cuter in person than I thought it would be online.

Great fit and I love that its reversible! More coverage than the usual Patagonia bikini bottoms which is much appreciated.
