Hey Mary, we're so sorry to hear that the Barely Everyday Bra didn't work out for you. You may want to consider an option with more support, such as the [Switchback Sports Bra](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-switchback-sports-bra/32095.html?dwvar_32095_color=TFBA&cgid=root). These tend to stay in place better. We hope to not disappoint you in the future!
Do not buy if you have larger than a B cup
This bra runs extremely small. I laughed when I opened. I am a size 34DD and usually wear a large sports bra. This whole bra is like the cup of a normal large bra.
Hi Amy, thanks for that helpful insight. We are sorry to hear that this didn't work out. This is definitely one of our more minimal coverage bras and please feel free to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) it back to us. You may consider checking out our Active Mesh Bra or our Wild Trails Sports Bra as these both will have much more coverage and support.
My size for a bra is normally 34 C. I ordered the Med. everyday bra as recommended by Patagonia. There isn't enough room for a C cup size in the fabric so the elastic is not underneath my breasts. It has not been a successful purchase for me.
We are so sorry to hear that the sizing was off on this. We appreciate your comments on the fit as it is helpful for our design team. If you haven't already, we'd suggest [sending](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) that back to us.
'Everyday' is the key to this bra
I wanted to find a bra that I could wear all day and not fantasize about taking it off at the end of the day. I wasn't looking for support that your might find in a typical sports bra, but what makes this bra perfect for me, is that I don't regret wearing it if I end up doing something active. I wouldn't put this on to go for a run, ... Read Morebut I would be fine if my afternoon walk turned into a run (which has happened on occasion...sometimes it's just so fun to be out!). I typically wear 34 B/C bras, and went with a medium - I typically wear a S/XS in Patagonia clothing, but am finally realizing that in the "snug clothing" category S is too tight around my ribcage - breathing is pretty sweet, and it might be more fun if I stop making it painful.
I love the fit of this bra. Because of the stretchiness, it fits with no gaps or poofs. It stays in place without putting gouges in my chest. The straps are comfortable and stay on my shoulders. The padded inserts occasionally need adjusting, but that's pretty easy to do. The only improvement I would suggest is printing info directly on bra ra... Read Morether than having a tag.
Sizing way off
So, in the most positive voice, this bra was so undersized. Needing to have a large band, this bra did not increase the cup size at all. I felt like I had totally missed something. I even used the sizing chart to confirm C/D cup size associated with the XL sized bra.
We're so sorry this didn't work out and thank you for bringing this to our attention. We'll be sure to pass the word to the appropriate teams. If you haven't already, you're welcome to make a return [here](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
It's pretty, but that's about all. I got the medium, and the cups seem really small, and I'm by no means well endowed! Also, it doesn't stay put at all!

We're really sorry to hear that the Barely Everyday Bra isn't working out for you. If you haven't already feel free to make a return so we can get you credit to put towards another bra.

It has a similar feel, but is better suited for active days.
Runs small and is itchy
I am typically an a-b bra size and find this to be small (I am 5'5 and 135 for reference). Also the openings where you can remove the padding are super itchy and I find I cannot wear this for any length of time.

Minimal and Comfy
Im a 34B and ordered a Medium. I wanted to love it and have it be my new go-to bra. The band is comfortable, not too tight or loose. Love the spaghetti straps for wearing with work clothes. I wish that the front panel had more coverage. I feel like Im always tugging on the top to keep everything covered, but then the band on the bottom rides up to ... Read Morehigh. It would be fixed with more coverage on the front panel.

Not as comfortable as anticipated
I got this bra in both black and the lighter, beige color. I was planning on wearing it casually around the house, and if I felt there was enough support, for some light exercise. When I got them and tried them on, they didn't fit as well as I hoped for, and I didn't find them particularly flattering. My bra size is 34B, but the correspon... Read Moreding size small seemed a tad bit *too* small and not quite as supportive as I hoped for. Still, I tried wearing the black one for a day around the house. The comfort was OK at first, but by the end of the day, the back of the straps at the seams and adjustment pieces were irritating my skin, and I couldn't wait to get it off. I also wore the beige one for a day, and it didn't bother me as muchmaybe it happened to be cut just a tiny bit larger? If I can, I might try to return the black one and keep the beige one, provided I don't experience the same irritation as the black one. At the same time I also ordered the Switchback bra, and I LOVE it. It's a different kind of bra, of course. Much more oriented towards sports and high impact activity, so it has a ton more support than the Barely Everyday bra. I'll be leaving a very positive review for that one!
So Comfortable Youll Hardly Know Its There
Perfect comfort - it was easy to forget I was wearing it. Cups run a little small. Lovely color and so happy its certified fair trade. The only daily bra that I can wear to work that is fair trade certified that Ive found available. Keep it up Patagonia Team! You rock.
It's the best
I've struggled with bras for year as I have wide shoulders. Every one I have purchased in the past, up until now, have caused back problems and were just uncomfortable all around. This is by far the most comfortable I have ever purchased. It's amazing for any kind of activity or lounging and completely worth the price. I tend to be cheap ... Read Morewhen it comes to clothes but Patagonia sports bras and underwear are worth every penny. I'll say the same for all other clothing I have purchased from them. My only complaint is, as green as they are, that the shipping material is not more eco-friendly (plastic-free.) That's the only thing I'd like to see being improved. Apart from that, their creations have never disappointed me.
I originally bought this to wear with my June Lake Jumpsuit, but its become one of my favourite everyday bras! I'm 5'6, 160lbs, and ordered a medium. I was a bit worried it would be too small, but I find that there's lots of coverage and enough support for everyday wear and light yoga.
I wanted to love this
I really wanted to love this bra as I have been searching for a comfortable bra to wear for daily activity and low impact sports (yoga/climbing/easy hikes) but after a month of average use the band around the waist is already stretched out and it does not fit well as its getting all loose.

Not Enough Support
I would like to start by saying that I LOVE my other Patagonia bras. Seriously. But this one just didn't cut the mustard as the straps are way too thin to handle anything over a B cup Id say. Maybe only an A truthfully. The color was beautiful and I adore the material (so soft and breathable) but I had to return it because the ladies werent go...

I love this bra. I use it everyday for casual wear. I can wear it to work, and also hike and do yoga in them. I like the fit and the small fits me perfectly. I am between an A and B cup in cup bras. I like that the straps are adjustable. It is comfy and looks good underneath shirts. I would def recommend to friends.
Moderate support and comfy fabric
Not as supportive as the Barely Sports Bra, but still good support for daily tasks or low-impact activities. Fits pretty true to size and so far the fabric is holding up well after a few months of pretty regular wear. Stretches a ton and is so comfortable you might forget you're wearing it
really small cups
I ordered these to replace some eight year old Barely bras. I don't like the fit of the new model (the straps are too short and the double strap in the front feels too restrictive), so I was hoping these would be my new go-to. Unfortunately they're not. I don't see any mention in the description of these being only for A cups or smal... Read Moreler, but Patagonia should really include that. I'm a B cup on one side and A/B on the other, and there's not nearly enough material for me. The band that looks like it should sit around the rib cage rides up so much that it ends up just below my nipples, and if it stretched out at all my boobs would be falling out the bottom. Also, I lengthened the straps as far as they would go (and I'm not that tall - 5'4"), and they were still digging into my shoulders a little. I definitely got the right size - the chest band fits fairly loosely. There's just not room for much, and given the shortness of the shoulder straps, I sort of felt like I was trying on a bra made for a 10 year old. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because if these issues were addressed, it feels like it would be as comfortable as the old Barely bra. In general I've been disappointed with Patagonia changing up styles so frequently, and overall the designs seem to be less functional and comfortable than in the past. Not sure what's up with that, but please stop trying to fix what isn't broken.
Hello Skye, thanks so much for sharing your detailed review with us. We understand how disappointing not finding the right bra is.

nice soft comfortable
I like the fit and feel of this bra. I like that it drys quickly and always smells fresh. I read the reviews before buying and most were saying that it ran small so size up. I bought the medium because of that and although it does fit I feel that it is a bit loose around my torso. If I buy another, I will choose a small. My bra size is 32 D or 34 C... Read More

After a year of only wearing nursing tanks, I couldn't go back to the restriction of an underwire bra.

Comfort without flattening!
This is my second Barely Bra and I'm in love! I'm fairly small chested, so I don't need a lot of support. That being said, I also like how the bra provides shape with the modesty pads. I've spent years being flattened in sports bras just because I never fit into bras with more defined cups or wires. This bra is the perfect blend... Read More of comfort without flattening. The only critique I have, and this goes for everything I've ordered from Patagonia in the last few years, is the excessive long white tag sewn into the steams. In the bra and underwear, I can usually cut it out without creating a hole, but it's risky. Any chance you can find another method of tagging that can easily be removed without risk of damaging the clothes? This would be especially helpful in items that are worn close to the skin - underwear, bras, base-layers, t-shirts, etc. I continue to appreciate Patagonia's commitment to supporting sustainable environmental practices through their products - clothes and food. Keep up the amazing work!
I love Patagonia bras, but this one was extremely small. I ordered an XL which I normally do for my chest size (40C) and the girls keep popping out. It's title "barely" I suppose is accurate in that regard.

I wanted a bra that is easy to put on, and breathable, with enough support for hiking, biking and general activities. I bought one and liked it enough that I immediately ordered another.

Oh So Comfortable
I needed a bra for backpacking and tried this out on a week long trip. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable! The removable padding would roll up sometimes, and being that they are removable, I did just that. Could have been the backpack straps that initiated that while hiking. Id definitely wear this for everyday wear.
While I like Patagonia's other minimalist bras (like the Barely bra and Active Mesh bra), this one was a little too minimalist. I have a larger chest and it did not fit in the XL. I am a size 8-10, with a B cup size, so it was pretty surprising that an XL wouldn't cover me. I was spilling out of the top and sides (by my underarms). Probab...

Love the idea, not meant for D Cups
I wanted to love this bra- I am 140lbs and 5'5" & typically a size M or L in sports bras, and 34D cup. The band fits comfortably and the material is great but the cup size is too small. I can readjust to make my breasts just barely fit in the M, but they're spilling out the top a bit, and creates a uni-boob wide breast look with ... Read Morea shirt on.

This is the bra I've been searching for. I'm a 36A with a long and athletic torso (5' 9"), so correct bra fit is usually difficult for me. Not only does it fit just right but is cut just right too. I can wear it under regular everyday shirts with a lower cut neckline. Usually I get bralettes to use as active bras because I don&#...

I ordered this in the light purple color, size S (I'm 5'7", 115lbs, A cup), and it is incredibly comfy!

Whenever I get to travel again, I do think it will be wonderful in all of those ways, but for now I am ... Read Morejust enjoying wearing it at home and in my local community. The materials is so soft, light, and stretchy. I also probably would have fit into an XS just fine because the material is very flexible (so if you're between sizes, know that there's room for error). One note that is a little silly but FYI: the cup inserts stay put while you wear but can shift in the wash (theres no sew line between the cups) so when you take the bra out of the dryer the cups might be one on top of the other. When I pulled the bra out of the laundry I only saw one side with the cup shape and thought one of the inserts had slipped out and gotten lost, but then finally realized that both inserts were stacked on top of each other on the same side.
Lovely bra, but not for large cup sizes
I wanted a non-razor back bra so I tried this out. I am 145lbs, 5'5" and wear 34-36 D/DD (haven't measured in a while and have gone through some weight changes, lol).

Not for bigger busts
I have the racer back barely and love it but the design on this barely bra is not meant for bigger busts. There is not enough room from strap to bottom band on this bra to properly hold them. If you are a large C or bigger I would not recommend this bra or I’d at least size up.

Bras are tough for me to buy. I have scoliosis so need a larger band size...that doesn’t always match the cup size I need. So I’m not the best reviewer for women in general. Two negatives for me then are, wish the band was a bit more snug and the next one is my biggest complaint...reinserting and repositioning the removable pads. Is there a ‘best’ ... Read Moreway to accomplish this?? Overall I’m really pleased with the bras. Bought 7 of them, so I’m committed to the purchase. They’re comfy, look good under a tee. And I trust they’ll last a long time cuz they’re Patagonia. I do follow laundry instructions though, delicate cycle. I hang to dry as heat is the enemy of elastic.
The perfect bra!
After reading the reviews, I decided to give this bra a chance. I've been looking for a bra I could wear under work/dress clothes, but also casual outfits. Something comfortable, that didn't sit too high on my chest, didn't ride under the arms too high, and with straps that would stay put on my shoulders. This bra checked off all of ... Read Morethese boxes and more. It is so incredibly comfortable! It seems a bit pricey for what you're getting, but it has been worth the investment.
Love this everyday bralet!
The world seems to revolve around women who have large chests or those who need support. But what about those of us that have athletic builds and don’t need anything pushed up? This is the bra for you. Looks great under tight tops, super comfy, no unsightly bulges. Perfect!
Bra too tight
When I got this bra, I slipped it on and it was just not comfy. The straps seem to narrow and cut into me. It was also too tight around my rib cage.
Hi Robin! Thanks for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're sorry to hear the bra didn't fit quite right. Your satisfaction is guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).
Somewhere between the classic bra and a sports bra, this is comfortable and secure- light enough to wear every day. The materials are great. The only downside for me is that the tag under the arm bothered me- I cut it off but was unable to remove it completely so it still pokes me occasionally.
easy to wear, very comfortable
this bra is very easy to wear, the straps are sturdy without being too wide. i enjoy the pink color because it doesn't show under thin shirts. i don't always leave the pads in bras like these, but for this style the pads work fine. it is nice that you can remove the pads if you prefer less materials. i am a small build but have a long tor... Read Moreso, and so i would say this bra runs slightly small for me... the small fits me fine for this bra, but i am an XS in other patagonia tops.
The name says it all
As a small chested woman, I'm tired of ill-fitting bras with underwire that does nothing but dig into my ribcage. I don't need the support; I would wear a bralette every day but I prefer something with padding to give me a bit of shape. Enter this bra. It's very comfortable - hardly notice I am wearing it! It's small, as in it d... Read Moreoesn't cover a lot of surface area, which I like: the front dips down fairly low so that it doesn't show on most v-necks. I did have to go up a size: I'm usually a 34A with athletic body/broad shoulders, and while the Small fit, it was tight. The Medium is perfect. The only major drawback keeping it from being the *perfect* everyday bra is that it's not invisible: the top edge creates a noticeable ridge in most of my tees, even the loose ones. To be honest I'd like more padding too, but I recognize that wouldn't make it so "barely" there. That being said, I've reached it for it almost every day since I've got it, so it must be doing something right!
I’m happy to say...
This bra worked out perfectly. I am hard to fit, but after adjusting the strap lengths, stretching the fabric a bit, and washing the bras in a “delicates” bag with the rest of my laundry ( never on hot! ) and hanging it to dry, I wore the bra for a whole day without thinking about my new bra. What could be better than not thinking about a bra.
It is a nice bra but the straps are too long. You can't adjust them short enough for comfort.
We're sorry to hear those straps are too long for comfort, Virginia! Please note, you are welcome to initiate a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=returns) if you'd like to try out a different style.
Best Bra ever for the A/B’s
I’m so thankful Patagonia brought back an A/B fitting barely and/or everyday bra. I was so bummed a few years ago when they vanished for smaller busted women. These new and improved designs are better than the original with great support and padding if so inclined to keep it in. I’m 5’11” thin framed 145 but broad shoulders, and the medium in the r...

More “substantial” than expected
I’ve ordered many bras from Patagonia in the past and expected this to be similar. It is way more “substantial”. I’m keeping it and removing the pads .... but won’t be buying any more.
We're very sorry this bra wasn't as you expected. We've passed your feedback along.
Love this Bra!
I wore my Barely There Bras until they were truly barely there, so when I saw that Patagonia had finally come out with something similar to my old standby, I was thrilled. These are a little thicker than the Barely There, but fit very similarly and are exactly what I need for daily use. Thank you Patagonia! I have three now, but will be buying more... Read More.
I like this bra...It is true that if you have more to hold, this may not be the bra for you. The support is just enough for everyday and I like the light feel and the thin traditional straps. The fabric washes well and is weighty enough to do without the inserts. (I don't have the patience to realign these things after they move in the wash!) ...

This was a reorder to make sure that I have enough to get through my week before having to do laundry and to expand my color selection, no matter what I wind up doing.

Pretty great bra
Bras are a hard product to make. Women's bodies come in all shapes and sizes. I love this bra because it is wireless, it provides a lot of support, and looks great with all of my clothes. I can be very active or dainty in it, so it's quite versatile. It's easy to wash. At the end of the day, it does feel good to take it off. But I fe...

Comfy Bra for everyday use
This was my first Patagonia bra and I bought it for the purpose of everyday casual wear. The bra is well fitting and comfy. I would not suggest wearing it for athletic events as it is not supportive enough for rigorous movement. Also, the padding frequently bunches up in the wash.
Love this bra!
I absolutely love this bra. It is extremely comfortable and really easy to wash/store. It is supportive enough for me that if I forget to bring a sports bra I can workout in this bra with no issue.

I have the "W's Barely There Bra" which is the most comfortable bra I've ever worn. But it has a racer back, so I was looking for the same kind of bra with regular straps. I ordered the "W's Barely There Everyday Bra" and it is a disappointment. First of all, the cups (on the same size bra) are WAY smaller, so tha... Read Moret they simply don't fit me properly -- as small as I am, I almost spill out of them. Secondly, the straps are very skinny, and are not flat, so they don't feel good, whereas the straps on the Barely There Bra are flat and a bit wider and are quite comfortable. I cannot understand how these two bra were sized and designed so differently. I cannot wear this one and will be sending it back.
We're sorry to hear you're disappointed with this bra's design. Please don't hesitate to contact our [Customer Service](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html) team if you need any help with your return.
Looks comfortable, but it's not
Nope! Those little metal rings in the straps that dig into my back. The band that rides up and covers the lower 25% of my boobs. By 2pm I'm cranky and can't wait to take it off. $50 down the drain. I'm 34B.

Exactly what I have been looking for!
I love this bra, already bought two! I'm a 34b and the small is perfect. What I love: the texture is smooth and doesn't show thru thin shirts (like lace does), the padding is removable, the straps are normal (not cross back, which often peak out of necklines), and enough support for every day activities or low intensity workouts.
Although comfortable when worn, getting the cup pads in place is awkward. The “finger holes” are too small and too far down to make adjusting possible (while being worn). I have a similar bra with a different back strap (purchased last year from Patagonia) and the “ finger holes” are in a different place. The cup pads rarely need adjusting and are ... Read Moreeasy to do if necessary. The cup pads in this newer bra need adjusting with each wear. I wouldn’t recommend this one.
Minimal coverage but comfy
I own several of the Barely Bra, which I wear daily for yoga, light cardio and householder living. They’re perfect aside from the exposed straps that often happen with racerback bra styles. I was expecting the Barely Everyday Bra to be similar in terms of fit, support, coverage, etc. It is comfortable, however the Barely Everyday offers much, much ... Read Moreless coverage and a bit less support. My normal bra size is a 34B and the Barely Everyday (size M) barely keeps them contained. I can’t imagine this would work for a C cup or larger. Also the bottom band is not particularly snug and rides up a bit. This works OK for me when I’m not doing strenuous activity. Also very convenient for breastfeeding. Recommended... with reservations.
Is this actually for boobs or..?
I’m a 36 DDD, ordered an XL, this bra is definitely, even at its largest, made for women with a B-cup at the biggest. Extremely disappointed and can’t find my receipt, $50 is a lot for a bra that I can’t even wear. Not even around the house. And there’s pads in the bra, they’re SO SMALL, in an extra large bra, the padding cups are so tiny. I KNOW a... Read More woman couldn’t have designed that bra.
Sorry to hear that the bra has been a disappointment. You're welcome to [return](https://is.gd/DQq2nw) it to a Patagonia-owned store for a merchandise credit or send it in for a refund.
Close but not right
I LOVE the Barely bras, and I was hoping that this would be a good choice for those times I need a standard-strap bra. Unfortunately, this version doesn't work for me at all. The cups are too small and don't really offer any support for larger busts. I'd say don't buy this if you're above an A or small B cup. Patagonia alre... Read Moready offers plenty of options for small bust sizes, we don't need another super low cut model. Please remember that not all of your customers have small busts! The straps, as others have mentioned, are too skinny. I would have liked thicker straps closer to the width of those on the regular Barely bra. If Patagonia decides to redesign this bra with the coverage of the reacerback Barely and more substantial straps, I'll stock up!
I really wanted to love this, but...
I love the Barely Bra and hoped that the Everyday would have all things I love but with "Everyday" straps so that I could wear more open necklines.

Read Moreg a deeper neckline as it is quite high. It looks like you are wearing a camisole that gapes. Plus, it just doesn't support and create a flattering silhouette. It seems like the padding inserts move around more, too.
Comfy and great for all uses
These are fantastic for those of us who don't fit into or enjoy "conventional" bras, but don't want to be alllll out there. (I like the (removable) light padding for that as well.) I sized down a size from my usual sport top size to have better support (and yes I say that un-ironically about a non-supportive bra top ;)). I'... Read Mored prefer slightly wider and flatter straps. If you are on the bustier side of the demographic for this style top, the skinny straps could dig in more to your traps and be a deal-breaker.
Minimal Coverage - Bad for Big Busts
I LOVE the "barely" brand, but this bra falls short for me. I have a 34-36 band size, and a DDD cup size. The large in the original "Barely Bra" fits great, but this "Everyday Bra" has so little fabric that my chest spills out (there is literally 3-4 inches worth of fabric from band to top of cup - very low-cut). It pr... Read Moreovides no support and does not contain my chest at all. If I had a smaller cup size, it might fit better, but disappointed considering the sister version of the bra is perfect! I am still debating whether to try the XL.
too little support
I purchased the xs and the band is too loose so not very comfy - cups are fine and just enough padding though I took it out for comfort which is just my preference. If it fit right it might be ok but the slipping and tugging at it was too annoying. I already took off the large attached tag so can't return it.
Great Bra - truly comfortable
I am so happy with this bra. It is comfortable - not too loose and not too tight - just the right amount of support while remaining very comfortable. And - the straps don't show under everything. They are in normal bra strap position and they are adjustable! More colors please.
Feels Like Nothing
I just bought this bra for a hiking trip I will be taking over the summer- I plan to use it as a sports bra and as a bathing suit top. When I put it on, I was in disbelief! You can't feel the band at all (my least favorite thing about other sports bras is that they're always so tight and I feel restricted). Since I don't need much su...

I wear a 30DD or 32D normally, I wear a medium in this bra and it is so comfy.
Best bra ever!
My normal go-to bra is usually the Women's Barely Bra but when I saw this one was released I knew I had to try it. This bra is far more comfortable and I can wear it with more gear.
