Beautiful design, poor fit

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Large

I really wanted to love this suit, but just couldn’t. It’s a beautiful design in theory, but the fit is problematic.
I’m not significantly overweight - maybe an extra 10-15lbs or so - but don’t like my tummy, and thought this suit would be a great alternative to a conventional one piece. I ordered the Valley Flora/Rosewater print, and it was absolutely beautiful. However, the fit of the suit is very specific, and didn’t work for my body at all. I’m 5”10, 160 lbs, 36D, pant size of 6-8. As another reviewer mentioned, this suit is extremely long in the torso. I’m pretty tall, and based on the other reviews and my usual size, I ordered a large. The torso of the suit was WAY too long. Several inches of extra material that bunched around my tummy and excentuated my belly pouch. Kind of the opposite of what I was hoping for. The straps are not adjustable, so that added to the less than ideal fit. There are thin foam cups in the bust, but they aren’t sewn in and there’s no pocket to reach in and adjust them. This means that every time I took the suit on and off, they moved sideways, folded, bunched, etc., and were a pain in the neck to adjust back to the right spot. Despite the thin cups, there’s no support or any real shaping in the bust. I like sports bra style bikini tops, and while this top contained my boobs just fine, it wasn’t particularly flattering. The cut on the back was really pretty and flattering, but if you have any tummy chub that gathers around your side (any sort of spare tire or muffin top shape) the view of the cuts on the side is also unflattering. My tummy pouch isn’t significant, and this suit managed to accentuate it. The material is also quite thin, so nothing is contained or flattened or sucked in at all. In the end, I think a medium would have fit me a little better, but the material was still so thin that it didn’t offer the support I needed. The lack of adjustibility made me hesitant to try to exchange, so I returned it.

Bottom line: gorgeous suit if you have a body that fits it exactly. A flat tummy, very long torso, and small perky breasts. Otherwise, I don’t think it does much to flatter.

My all time Favorite

Super impressed with the quality and feel of this swimsuit. Fabric is phenomenal and received so many compliments when wearing it. I typically wear a sporty bikini but wanted something that showed more style and this fit the bill! I would buy again if more color choices were available!

A Perfect Swimsuit

I bought it right before a trip to Belize -- used it to snorkel, lounge on the beach, bike around on a hot day. It is very comfortable and flattering. I was complimented on it on the first use!

Great swimsuit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

  • Size Bought: Medium

I expect nothing less from Patagonia - this swimsuit is excellent quality and very well made. It has a really cute pattern, and the cut is flattering. It stayed in place (even in the butt area!) while spending a day playing beach soccer and volleyball. The back is strappy but not adjustable. The size Medium fit a 34C bust really well and could comfortably fit larger. I am in between a size 4 and 6 in Patagonia pants, and the Medium fit great. The only downside is the torso is quite long - I have a moderate size torso and I’m 5’8. There was a tiny bit of extra fabric; I just had to adjust so the neck sat really high and it wouldn’t bunch up. It wasn’t too bad, but this swimsuit probably wouldn’t work well for a petite person! Overall I’m really happy with this swimsuit! Shout out to my awesome gearhead Brooklynn for helping me out with this pick!
