Patagonia Women's Reversible Extended Break One-Piece Swimsuit

Pretty but odd cut

Looks like a pretty strappy swimsuit, but in fact the design is quite odd. The front plunge is too deep and too wide, leaving only skimpy coverage. I do like the recycled material and colors though. The challenge is to improve coverage on chest, add chest support, increase rear coverage a little to avoid wedgies, while maintaining the youthful str... Read Moreappy look. You can do it, Patagonia!

Cute suit

cute swimsuit. I thought the plunge would be the revealing part, but the top area actually angles outward more than it seems from the pictures. Also, the green side is horizontally ribbed. two small qualms: first the sanitary lining they put on it was really hard to remove, it didn't come off in the wash and I had to manually rub it to get it...

Great Fit, Feels High Quality

Everyones body is different, so Im not surprised to see some folks not liking the fit. For me (who is flat chested, longer torso, straight waist) this suit is flattering. The deep plunge looks sexy, but the suit feels very secure. It does run small, but I imagine that helps everything feel secure. The butt has a less coverage than I would prefer. O... Read Moreverall, good balance of sexy and sporty. Ill wear this on more active river swims. The fabric quality feels great. Both soft and sturdy.

BEST Swimsuit Ever!

The design is so wonderful! Great for a professional setting. With the reversible feature I only had to pack one swimsuit for my trip. I highly recommend.

August 20, 2021

Great Quality, Cute, a Little Snug

Love the style and cut of this suit. It feels great on and it feels like it'll stay put when I'm more active. That said, I'm petite but curvy (5'2, 123lbs, a true 30F in the chest), and while the top fits, I think a Medium overall would have been better. The suit is a little too tight in the hips, and it's not as flattering... Read More when it presses in there. It's close, though-- it's a pretty good fit, and since the Medium isn't in stock, I'm just going to keep the Small. I do love the reversible style--it'll be nice to switch it up when I feel like it!

Lap Swimming

I love this suit for so many reasons! Great design , color & reversible gives me options . Patagonia is known for excellent quality and I think this suit is both a great fit & quality . I swim laps daily and have to say this suit is everything Id hoped for. Well done! Keep this design because a one piece is classy and more modest ( even tho... Read Moreugh my husband thinks its pretty sexy! ) I happened to purchase this suit on sale, but Id pay full price knowing what a great swimsuit this is!

August 4, 2021

It looked great until I swam

I really LOVED the way this looked on me. I had bought this because I really wanted to have a swimsuit I to swim in. Unfortunately, there were many wardrobe malfunctions and I did not feel comfortable keeping this. Probably not the best for less endowed women who want to actively swim in it.

Discolored after a wash

Medium usually runs a little loose on me so I was expecting that but its actually a good right but comfortable fit. Had no complaints after wearing it for my swimming lessons, still had some of the adhesive left from the sticker but didnt mind that, but after washing it I noticed the blue side was discolored. I couldnt believe it. After one wash. I... Read More told my mom about it and she was confused as well. She even mentioned how cheap clothing usually does that. It wasnt cheap though. Im still very confused on how or why that happened. Its unfortunate that Ill only be able to use the green side now.

Runs small

Im 56 150. Fit. C on top no waist small butt, trim legs. I got a Medium, and suit would fit if I was shorter and had no chest. Really nice color and cut but extremely small. Even the butt was tight which never is an issue. I wear M in billabong and ONeil one pieces and this M was more like a Small in those brands. Im waiting for stock to come back ... Read Moreand will try a L or even XL. Id say this sizing is comparable to Roxy which runs excessively small and fits a more teenage body type.

Cute and functional

Bought this suit as I am postpartum and need to nurse and dont want to buy too many bathing suits. Reversible is great, love the print and quality of stitching. Wore it every day for a 10 day vacation. Note that there is a possibility of a nip-slip (but also why I got a deep plunge suit). Not recommended for high surf or water slides without a seco...

Love this style

I had been looking at this suit for a while and decided to go for it with it being on sale. I found the fit to be true to size, although I have a long torso which makes it a little tighter up top and potentially more low cut? The material is super soft and comfy. Love that its reversible.

July 2, 2021

Super awesome suit!

Yes, yes, yes! Fits, flattering, stays put for rock-jumping, swimming, lifting, bending, etc. Love the lining. Not see-through and no wardrobe malfunctions! Good looking AND athletic!

June 17, 2021

Great fit for long torso

I love this bathing suit. I use it for swimming laps and it is super comfortable. I have a long torso and I have historically had difficulty finding a one piece that fits well. Thank you Patagonia for making such an excellent product.

June 17, 2021

Perfect for everything

Perfect fit all around. Cheeks and teets stayed covered complete no matter the feat. 10/10 highly recommend.

June 9, 2021

Size up if you have a longer torso

Order a medium if you have a longer torso, like me! I am 5'8, 36B, 130 lbs. I usually wear a size small in underwear and size medium in bras for Patagonia. The size small did NOT fit - too tight everywhere, including around the chest. The medium fits well. However, I wish there was more coverage at the bottom. The suit rides up a bit while we... Read Morearing it. The reversible idea is really fun, and I love the green colors. It also makes the suit feel very sturdy because of the double layered fabric, which is great. Be aware that with the white side out (for that color), you can see the stripes underneath which looks a little strange - I will be returning that one.

June 1, 2021

Disappointing Fit

Disappointing sizing and feel...Large at Patagonia is usually a little big for me. This swimsuit felt like I was being stuffed into sausage casing...too tight in all the wrong places and just very uncomfortable. Looks great in the pictures but not in person.

This is legitimately the MOST unflattering swimsuit I have EVER put on. I am 59, 140 lb and fairly fit and happy with my bod. This suit accentuates all the little unappealing features (seat runs tight, halfway across the butt so the un-covered area of the butt/leg poofs out and jiggles). Also, I am small-chested and my boobs looked tiny and patheti... Read Morec like moths pinned to a felt board. Shoulders look huge. I have a small waist, but somehow this was not apparent with the cut. The fabric is great, love the color, love the idea of reversibility, but the cut is just shockingly bad for me.

Silky smooth

Amazing swimsuit. The material is outrageously silky and feels high quality. This swimsuit contains all my squishy areas and still leaves room for some sex appeal. Im a solid medium in everything but swimsuits. The large fits great! Thanks patag

Nice suit...but one major issue

Patagonia! Whats with the adhesive on the sanitary label?! It left terrible residue on the suit that was VERY difficult to remove (basically had to scrape it off since it didnt come off with washing, soaking, alcohol wipe).

Response from Patagonia
April 22, 2021

Hello Elizabeth, we're sorry you had trouble removing the adhesive. For future reference, you can remove the remaining adhesive residue with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing alcohol). Pour or spray the rubbing alcohol onto the area that has the residual adhesive. It should be saturated, but not dripping. Then rub the area using your fingers, a paper towel, or the suit on itself. The adhesive should come right off. Lastly, follow the labeled care instructions to wash the suit. Hang to dry.

April 19, 2021

One piece

This suit fits me perfectly. I am short waisted with long legs. If I had a longer torso I would want a medium. The suit is snug on me and it holds me in. Given that I'm close to 68 I'm happy to have the support. I've been a staunch bikini type of gal and this is the prettiest and most flattering one piece I've ever had! The top...

Flattering, functional, versatile and stylish. What more could you want?!!! Great suit.

March 25, 2021


I thought the medium was a bit small. My wt is 140. I sent it back and replaced it with a large. It a bit big in the bottom area. But it feels so good! The material is so comfortable. I will definitely keep i!

Super fun suit

Nice suit for broad shoulders, and smaller bust. Fits true to size and is very functional. Love the pattern.

March 5, 2021

Very cute

I love this swimsuit! Its looks good and its comfortable. The fabric is thicker since its reversible and feels really nice, and I dont fall out of it. Looking forward to the summer

March 2, 2021

Most Comfortable Suit

This is by far the most comfortable suit I have ever worn. There is no tugging or pulling to put a creeping suit back in place with this suit. It is super soft, and it feels so nice against your skin. I can easily wear this suit all day with out wanting to take it off as soon as possible. It stays put when you're in the surf or diving into a p... Read Moreool. It's a little sexy too, a little cheeky and and I never felt like I was about to fall out. I love the cut. I'm 5'7 153 and I bought the medium. I probably could have bought the large and it would have fit also, but I always think I'm going to lose 5 lbs. I love the new colors and patterns. Thank you Patagonia for keeping this suit around for another season. It's the best!

February 26, 2021

Great for curves!

I had a baby about a year ago and this suit looks great with my curvy, busty mom bod. Happy it gives coverage up top but still looks flattering and fresh.

December 9, 2020

Very comfortable

I wanted a swim suit that would fit and stay in place while swimming, kayaking, windsurfing... This suit is complimentary and practical. Very comfortable, light just perfect for me.

November 14, 2020

i like it

pretty swimsuit, quality seems good. I hope it will hold a bit for most suits break quickly after weekly use in a chlorinated swimming pool. I am 5'8, 155lb, size M fits well.

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.

Best one piece ever!

This is the best fitting and flattering one piece I have ever owned. Highly, highly recommend!

September 1, 2020

Nice Suit

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... Read Moreuld be the perfect swimsuit if it was little higher cut in the front hips - it covers the butt well but a little too low in the front.

June 25, 2020

Best swimsuit for swimming/surfing/kitesurfing while being lovely!

Finally a swimming suit suitable for sport and cute at the same time! I love it, it suits for different sport and let you be feminine at the same time! Fits well, perfect for small chest.

March 6, 2020

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

Flattering Fit

This swimsuit has a very flattering cut and has nice detail at the top and back. It fits very well and I feel comfortable in it. I won't be using this particular item for active wear but I suspect it would hold up well.

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.

October 6, 2019


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.

October 1, 2019

Great Suit!

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.

Great fit!

I love the design and the fit of this suit. A great mix of sexy and functional! I don't think I'll ever reverse it to the pink side, but I love the darker color. It fit true to size and is extremely comfortable--no chaffing, no pinch points.

I'm bummed I didn't try this suit on earlier! Fits like a glove and the print is beautiful! Fits true to size!

September 10, 2019

Doesn't work for me

The swimsuit is cut a little low on the hips for my taste. The fabric is also a little thin.

September 8, 2019

Great fit!

I'm 5'10, 130 lbs and the medium fits perfect! One-piece bathing suits can be a challenge for tall women, but this one is the ticket! It's a nice alternative to a bikini, beautiful colors. I look forward to getting more use out of it.

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!"

September 3, 2019

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.

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.

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.

Favorite Swim suit of all time forever

I haven't bought a swim suit I adored in over 20 years. This one makes me so happy. Perfect cut, perfect fit.

Flattering, functional swimwear

I love that this swimsuit is reversible. It is comfortable and looks good on.

August 10, 2019

Swimsuit heaven

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.

Not flattering

Wasn't crazy about the colors, patterns and fit.

Jurassic Paradise

I’m 5’8” and 140, and I run long in the torso. I tried on the med at the store, but felt more comfortable in the large, which is a perfect fit. The Jurassic print is stunning and timeless. A little treat to self that I will wear for years! Thanks!

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.

This is one of the best swimsuits I have had in a long time! The fabric is so soft and it fits in all the right places without it feeling like I am falling out. It is supportive and cute!

Great suit!

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.

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!

Loved the purple/fern print and fit, but large bust was over exaggerated

I have another similar suit and it is my favorite!
