Rated 1 out of 5 by from So sad about the change I agree with everything Momofthree had to say about the new iteration of this bra. Why did they take something so awesome (I really can't think of any way to improve the old version, and literally haven't worn another bra for the last 3 or 4 years) and mess it up so badly? If I wanted to wear such an uncomfortable, restrictive bra I could go to any department store and have 100's to choose from. The straps on the new version dig in, give me headaches, and pull the bra in weird ways. Luckily the Patagonia website still has some of the old bras available on sale so I stocked up and hopefully won't have to buy any more bras for several years. Maybe by then they'll realize their mistake and go back to what actually worked.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Patagonia ruined a perfectly good bra I absolutely loved the previous version of this bra and after wearing it out I went online to buy a few more. To my surprise, it's been replaced by this new version. I went to REI to try it on and it's not nearly as comfortable. It's too wide so the material digs into the tissue near my armpits and the straps are too short. It's also higher in the front, which bugs me because I wouldn't be able to wear low-cut shirts (I often wear this bra everyday, not just during exercise). I am very disappointed in this product and I hope Patagonia goes back to the previous version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low support bra: comfortable & pretty I'm a 38 C/D so this is not a medium or full support bra for me. However, this is by far the most comfortable bra I've ever worn. It's the bra I put on immediately after work. For my cup size, it's perfect to wear around the house, leisurely walking, yoga, or running errands. Wouldn't be enough support for me to hike, bike, or run. I purchased 2 in size L and they fit me (size 14, 38 C/D) perfectly. Nice fabric and colors. The bra is pretty and the straps make it sexy and can be worn with tank dresses (without straps showing). My husband also is a fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from improved OK, I'm breaking the one-star streak. I actually think this new version is vastly improved over the old one. While I have the old styles, I only wear them with crew neck shirts because the bra straps are so close to my neck that they show with an open neck shirt. This new version has the straps placed more toward the shoulders, so I can wear any type of shirt. The new material seems a little lighter and dries faster when I'm drenched with sweat. As the other reviewers mentioned, this is not a running bra, but it's fine for hiking or biking. I have not had the issue with the straps digging into my shoulders, which is interesting since I'm a swimmer and have fairly substantial (?) shoulders. I'm a 36b and wear a small. I'd say if you can try this on at your local store- it might work for you. Not cheap, but for me, very comfy. Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Hot Humid Temps As a professional environmental educator, I'm outdoors every single day. And in Iowa the humidity is unbelievable and summer temps can get to 100. Having a bra that is breathable and that doesn't give bra sweat is a must for me. This is that bra. It's my go to for a hot day outdoors, a weekend of cycling or backpacking, and it also easily doubles as a quick-drying bikini if out for a paddle. I couldn't be happier with this bra. My standard bra size is 34B and the medium of this bra is perfect -so comfortable that I hardly know it's there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic everyday t-shirt bra I love this bra! I'm a 34C and got the small. It fits perfectly. It is a little high in the front for very low-cut t-shirts but the nude color blends into my skin that it's not even noticeable if it flashes a little. Super comfortable. Like the little inserts in the cups -- keeps things discreet. This is my come-home-from-work-strip-off-work-clothes-and-get-comfy bra.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Short new straps strain shoulder and underarms Patagonia has changed the bra for this new version of it beyond the visuals of new pattern/colors and strap style. First they've made it a bit wider on the sides and with cups that cover more. That change per se is not bad and I'm sure welcome by people with larger cup sizes. But the main change is that they've shortened the straps A LOT. As a result, this bra pulls up, digging against the skin a the edge of my underarms. Also with straps that are that short the back pulls up in the middle and even with soft straps you feel the strain over your shoulders. This totally changed the character of this bra from a second skin to a tight garment. Why do manufactures completely change the character of a product yet keep the same name is a puzzle to me... Do they enjoy confusing their customers? I really tried to like this bra because I loved its previous incarnation. The old one is like a second skin that you can wear comfortably forever. It is not a bra for high-impact activities, but a bra for low impact pursuit or everyday that you can forget you have on. I put on this new version for a few hours to see if I could get used to it but it's unbearable. Looks like they tried to increase support but went about it the wrong way... As a result this bra is neither good enough for higher impact activities nor good to wear all day as a comfort/freedom bra.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bra ever I bought this product as another sports bra for a bike tour, but it was so comfortable, I now wear it all the time. Great for work, relaxing, and being active. It is quick drying, flexible, and lightweight. And it doesn't smell even in the sweatiest of conditions! It is great for smaller to medium-chested women who don't need a huge amount of support in a sports bra.

Does the geo pattern show through clothes?

Asked by: stefanier
We cannot determine if the pattern on this top will show through clothes due to the large variety of available tops and materials.
