The strappy halter style and stay-put fit of the Patagonia Women's Reversible Mamala Bikini Top is certainly enough incentive to hop on your surfboard or swim in the ocean each day; but throw in a reversible design, and your summer just got that much easier.

Cute but not for any kind of activity

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Patagonia has never let me down. I love their swimwear and everything I have from them is nothing short of amazing product that lasts forever. This is the only slight exception. I agree wholeheartedly with other reviewers who want this suit to have adjustable back straps. It needs it! It's a cute top but as soon as I start moving, so does the top. I cut the straps and re-tied them which made the top tolerable but not perfect. Additionally, the neck strap digs in hard. I have a few other Patagonia suits with skinny neck straps/ties and they do not dig in at all but this one leaves a mark.

I love a bikini top with interesting ties and straps and that is why I bought this one, but those back straps need to be adjustable. I bought 2 of these tops; I plan on returning the one I did not alter and replacing it with the Kupala (Love that one) or Tallowood - both have excellent side boob coverage and comfortable straps/ties.

Sexy and sporty

    This is my favorite looking bathing suit top. I will say, I've gotten smashed down in the sand by a few waves and have had to readjust the girls before coming back up. This suit is great for all the beach activities (volleyball, jogging, reaching for the can of Pringles), but needs a little supervision when playing in strong waves. Maybe I just needed a size smaller (am a 32b and got a small).

    Great Reversible Top!

    Awesome reversible swim top - it fits well and i never feel like it is going to fall off, very secure. I ordered a medium as i wear a medium in most things Patagonia, but the bust on this swimsuit is a little small so you could probably size up. The medium fits but i could probably wear a large.

    Excellent!

    Love Patagonia swimwear and the reversible design gives you options.

    Great Suit!

    I purchased this top as well as the Reversible Cutback Bikini Bottoms and I couldn't be happier! The top fits perfectly and is super flattering. I normally wear a 34B and purchased a size small. There is a perfect amount of coverage without being too conservative. I also love how the top and bottoms are reversible - two for one deal!

    Holds Everything in Place

    Great bikini top from Patagonia - holds everything in place so definitely feels like you could be more active in this top and nothing with fall out. And holds up well against waves in the ocean! I typically wear a 34 B bra and ordered the medium and its perfect.

    Yes please!

      Soft and perfect for bigger breasted women, keeps you held in and super comfortable.

      100% YES!

      I recently took this suit to Thailand and loved wearing it while we were adventuring around. The material is SUPER comfortable and it's the best that it's reversible! Also how cute are those straps on the back? The tie at the neck didn't bother me at all!

      Super cute and comfortable

      I love this suit. Usually I try to avoid the neck tie but this does not bother my neck, while still giving my bust support. The fabric is really soft and quality. I will enjoy this suit for years to come I think.

      Exactly what I was hoping for

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: S

      Straight out of the box, I'm in love with this top. It's everything I'd hoped it would be--snug fitting, flattering, sexy-but-athletic. I'm normally a 32C in VS bra sizing; I ordered both the S and M in black to compare. Either would have worked, but I liked the tighter fit of the S, and wanted to account for any stretch with wear. I'm thinking of ordering in other colors!

      Stylish and Sporty

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Bought this for a friend as well as the matching bottoms. Her comments: loves the versatility of the whole set and the fun complimentary colors. Comfortable and with light support. Material has a substantial feel to it. She's a big fan.

      All you need

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      This is my favorite bathing suit I have gotten in a while. I have often struggled finding a suit with enough support- causing me to strangle myself with too-tight straps. I found this top does an amazing job. It's comfy AND stays on! I have used it for everything from guiding rafts and cliff jumping to SUPing and sun bathing. I also love to reversible mix-matched colors, its practically like two suits in one!

      Non-adjustable sizing

      • Fit: True to size

      Bought this for a friend who says:

      The top is cute, it fits well, but the back straps make it non-adjustable. So you have to be careful to make sure it actually fits, or you run the risk of losing your top doing anything active.

      Worked for me

      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      My wife bought this suit and here's what she had to say:
      I was a little hesitant to try this top due to the mixed reviews of other customers. I was looking for a simple, athletic swim top that wasn't completely un-stylish, so I took the plunge. I was pleasantly surprised and must admit that this was the first suit I pulled out on our trip to the beach. I purchased the black/electron blue combo and I love the colors, I also didn't have any trouble with the suit sliding around. Can't attest to the durability since I only got to use it once or twice. The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the matching bottom wasn't quite as impressive to me so as a set its not perfect. Would still buy again.

      Weird sizing

      • Size Bought: XL

      I was super excited about this top! Perfect shape, reversible, great colors, affordable price... but some things are too good to be true, and this top is one. I have a larger bust, but the sizing is totally off. I ordered an XL, it fits perfectly in the cups, perfect coverage, great material, seemed great, except that the chest band is not adjustable and was completely loose the entire way around. If this top had an adjustable back it would be a gem, but because it doesn't I will be returning this, and won't be ordering in another size. The search continues for a great bikini top!

      Does this suit come with padding? Or is it able to be added to it?

      Hi Nicole, Thanks for the question. Unfortunately this top does not have padding in it. Nor does it have the option. It does have double the material though since its a reversible.

      Not made for larger busts

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: extra large

      I ordered this top along with the matching bottoms and rashguard shirt & shorts. The bikini top and bottoms are really cute and good quality. The problem with the bikini set is that it runs small! I usually wear a medium to large bottom and an xl top. The bottoms fit like a smaller medium and the top was ridiculously small. The band sizing was perfect but if you're packing anything larger than a C cup I would look elsewhere, unless you're buying it to do a strip show. For the bikini bottoms and top I would size up. I think an xl would fit a normal lg. The coverage on the bottoms is great and I feel like they will stay in place. I hope this set will fit my niece when she comes to visit to avoid returning.

      Totally agree about the top. I'm a 36C and have tried both a medium and a large. Neither one would keep my breasts in when moving around. Cute, but don't bother unless you're planning on just laying around.

      Ehh

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      I wasn't that impressed with this top. I felt like the fabric wasn't as good of quality as I'd expected. I thought it would be good for me because I have a small chest but it made even my small b's feel like they had no support at all. Returning.

      Love

      Love this suit. Probably better for smaller cleavage. Top runs true to size. Bottoms may be a bit on the smaller size.

        Great Top! Perfect coverage. Comfortable and great material. love the reversible to change up the look!
