Very good quality

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

I've spent plenty of days on the lake, and I love it. True to size.

Great Suit

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

I bought this suit for my wife and she loves it! She said that it not only looks cute, but it also allows for movement also. She has done some open water swims in it and some jet skiing and said that the suit fit well and did not move around. She said that the suit fits true to size.

Kupala Top

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I want to love this top with all of my heart, but I think the design is just pushing it for my body type. I still like the top itself- the fabric is great, love that it has removable cups, and the color is fantastic. But it's definitely not an active top for me, more of a casual top as there's zero support!
To begin with, I had sizing issues... I got an XL to begin with to accommodate for my cup size, but then the band ended up being gigantic. I swapped it out for a L which still fit my cup size, and ended up fitting in the band a little better. I still have to cinch it down though, so the back rides up a little bit. For reference, I am typically a 32F.
So as it is, I like the top well enough to keep it- it's just more for chill wear as opposed to active days, and the back doesn't fit as nicely as I'd like!

Cute

    I liked the top it just wasn't the right fit for me.

    Larger chests - size up!

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: L

    I have a tough time finding a swim top that fits, so my review may not be applicable to everyone. Basic triangle tops are usually a reliable choice for me. I'm a 32DD and ordered a size Large in this top in Black. The top itself is super cute, and would look great on a smaller cup size with my frame, but I was still spilling out of the Large and lacked support. Unfortunately, will probably be returning this top.

    Comfy & well made

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: medium

    This is a great top. It is super comfortable -can wear all day without any strap dig or other discomforts. Prefer a triangle top style front which this has with support via cross back. It is well made. Great top!

    Looks Nice, Stays Put

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

    Basic, but feminine. Nice fabric. Most importantly I wanted a suit top that would stay put when I'm surfing, etc. This top stayed put even when I was getting pummeled by waves.

    Solid for swimming, shifts for surfing

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

    This is a nice top for swimming, going to the beach, etc. I've had trouble with the pads staying in place so I ended up sewing them to the suit. A friend has the same top and it suited her fine. I thought the cross back would be okay for surfing, but it ends up shifting around a bit. (Luckily I haven't flashed anyone yet, but I've been close.) No chafing problems though. Overall, I think I would have preferred to go with a different Patagonia top with more front coverage, like the Mamala.

    Victorious at last!

    I have had so many problems with finding a bathing suit. I was contemplating on buying 2 and sewing each different cup size together, however I wasn't going to spend $30 in total to do so. I was looking to find a bikini top to hold in both breasts of different size the same way. I have found the top! This top is comfortable and it easily holds in the goods. I am a 34DD or a 32DDD. It is so hard to find a bikini top that supports and holds both of them in while feeling comfortable and not getting cut with a wire on my shoulders. I love the color. The only thing I don't like is the padding there could be more of it. I ordered a size Medium because they didn't have a large left, but if I do say so myself it fits pretty good. I have enough strap left over to tie in a bow, not a knot, and I can adjust and jump up and down without them sliding out.

    Victorious at last!

    Great Fit

    The wife loves how comfortable it is. Great product, good fit - great for outdoor activities.

    Crazy for the kupala!

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

    I have an older generation of the Kupala, but nothing pales in comparison! The kupala is easily the most comfortable bathing suit top I own and has a classic look. I bought it specifically because I wanted a sporty performance top that didn't look like a sporty performance top (mouthful, I know). Thus far it's gone floating in Montana, swimming in Maine, river wandering in New Hampshire and Vermont, and of course beach-side lamping / volleyball / dog romps in Massachusetts. It washes well, which is definitely a plus. Also, I love how it easily adjusts and comes fully equipped with removable pads. While I'm not a surfer by any means, I'm a fairly mobile person and need a bathing suit top that I won't fall out of and I can't go wrong with the kupala. Keeps the gals in place, for sure! I'm typically a 34B / 36A and an XS fits just fine!

    Basic but Quality!

    • Size Bought: Med

    I needed something simple to contain the girls (34C), and this top does the job! The padding was more substantial than I expected which is a nice perk! The cross back detail makes it easy to adjust and strap down for extreme activities. Definitely basic, but high quality.

    Not the most supportive

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL

    I am a 32DDD, so my boobs are big, but i have an athletic body type. If you have the same body type you won't like this. It looks great when I am standing. However, when I move one direction my boob falls right out of it. If you think you can play volleyball in this suit I hope you try it at an adult only pool. It is well made and is holding up well.

    Sporty but also feminine!

    I really love this top, it stays on well for watersports and it also looks great when I'm being mellow . It's so nice not to have to sacrifice function for aesthetics.

    Basic Swimsuit

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

    My wife says this swimsuit is basically what you'd expect for a suit of this cut and price. It looks good, and it has a more functional/athletic cut than a traditional bikini top, but it's not like it will stay in place when you are surfing and go into the spin-cycle.

    Ditch the padding and go

    My fiancee repurchased this top after wearing out the old model. Patagonia has made some improvements to the Kupala top in the last couple years. The fabric has gotten softer and feels thicker but more pliant at the same time. She pulls the padding out... who likes that weird stuff bunching up? She's a 32D and the medium fits great.

    Great suit

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

    I wore this suit most of last summer. I put it through the wringer rock climbing over a lake, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, rafting, long distance swimming, etc. It always stayed in place when I needed it to. I absolutely love it. Only issue it the suit disintegrated by the end. The color has washed, it is mostly see through on the top, and the bottoms have become stretched. So I will be purchasing this suit again because I loved it so much BUT just be prepared to probably only wear it one season. Overall love the suit.

    Great top for staying in place

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I really like this top - the criss cross in the back secures the top and prevents anything from popping out. I'm a 32C and the medium works, though I do take out the inserts. I don't have the see through problem as another review, but I did get the turquoise, so perhaps that makes a difference. This is my 2nd of these tops.

    Needed a little more support.

    I got this top and the matching bottom for when I did my water sports, but still wanted to wear a bikini. The top is cute and looks great, however, you cannot adjust it. I like my tops very snug, and I couldn't get that on this. Also, the padding in the top always moves around and inside/out. It is annoying to have to keep fixing it.

    Transparent Material

    • Fit: True to size

    I love how adjustable this top is! It definitely stays put. My only problem is that the material is practically see through, you can clearly see the shape of the padding inside of the top and the pads move around a bit. Maybe this wouldn't be a problem with a darker color but I ordered the coral. Now that I'm looking at it again, the outline of the padding is visible of the model too.
