Normally, I wear a 1-piece or a tankini swimming in rough water. I was skeptical about this top but wanted to wear sustainable swimwear on a recent trip. And wow! This top was phenomenal. It was the absolute most comfortable swim top--actually, I'm a former hot yoga teacher, and it was the most comfortable, supportive top of any kind I've... Read More ever worn. I LOVE it and can't recommend it highly enough. It also had ample support and coverage (removable pads that look normal and they stay put). Truly a beautiful top and they work well with the slider bottoms.
Mandatory for kitesurfing
This is my second nireta top. I will buy one every year for the rest of my life, though my first one is still in great condition despite a ton of use. This top does not budge, is super flattering to my A/B size, provides sun protection right where I want it, and basically makes me feel like a warrior princess.
I ordered two of these-1fern
I ordered two of these-1fern print & 1 solid black. The fit was very different between the two . I kept only the print. The solid bunched awkwardly and seemed bigger and less smooth fitting overall. Not acceptable at all.
Thank you for this feedback, Dianne. Those two tops should have fit the same. We're so sorry the black one was off! We see you've sent it in as a return; please let us know if we can be of any assistance!
Great for pool and ocean swim
My third Nanogrip Nireta two piece suit. These are great for the pool and also under wetsuit for ocean swim. I've worn them on occasion for after-swim run when I didn't have a sports bra with me and the support was adequate. Probably not the most sexy, but great fit, stays in place, super comfy! I am getting ready to order a second suit t... Read Morehis season. (There is no box to check for "I use this product for" to indicate swim, and that is my primary use)
comfortable and secure
I've worn this mostly for paddleboarding and casual swimming, but also as a hiking top in a pinch. Pros: Great fit and high quality materials. I like that it's full coverage while still looking rad as heck! The grippy lining and soft cups feel secure and I don't have to worry about show-through/slippage. I got the cotton blossom pa... Read Morettern with pink and blue leaves (might have been discontinued?) and despite not being a pink person I actually really like the print. Cons: Strappy back is kind of confusing to get into and can take a minute to get all the straps laying flat. Like other commenters have mentioned, the cups are difficult to readjust. Sizing/fit: I'm a 36B, 6'1" with a long torso. The large fits well (medium might also work, but would be a lot more snug, just depends on your preference). Note, due to my body shape the bottom hem falls a bit higher on my torso than it does on the model in the pictures. The straps are also shorter than would be ideal for me- they pull up a little bit in the armpit area. Despite these minor issues I'm still happy with the fit as a whole.
perfect swim top but runs small
I've never found swim tops to be comfortable (either they're too tight or they don't stay in place) and have used a sports bra instead for many years. But have been spending a lot more time in the water lately and was getting tired of thick fabric that stays wet forever, so decided to give this top a try, and it's amazing. It&#x... Read More27;s insanely comfortable and the straps are actually long enough for my long torso, which has been an issue with every Patagonia bra I've tried of late. The only problem is that it does run small if you want it to fit more for comfort than compression. My regular size would have worked if I really wanted to keep my boobs locked down, but it restricted my breathing like a tight sports bra. The next size up still stays completely in place while being way more comfortable. I'm seriously amazed at how well the nanogrip fabric works - despite the lack of a tight chest band, I never worry about it riding up at all. I hope Patagonia doesn't redesign or discontinue these like they do with so many styles!
Conservative top but odd cut
Stayed in place. Excellent fit but the cut was not right for me. The back straps pulled upward and the angle between my armpits and chest were not flattering. I unfortunately had to return it.
Hey Amanda, we're so sorry to hear about your experience with the Nanogrip Nireta Bikini Top. This sounds really uncomfortable. We've passed your feedback along to our Design Team who are constantly working to improve the style, fit, and quality of our products. We hope to not disappoint you in the future.
Pads all askew
I really love the tiger tracks camo print, but unfortunately I just cant get the pads to lay right, and the back straps are a bit too tight and drag upward. I really wanted it to work, but will have to return it.
Thank you for your feedback on the Womens Nanogrip Nireta Top, we are sorry to hear that it did not work out for you. We can always be reached at 800-638-6464 if you would like to discuss what might work better for you!
Great for Active Beach Goers
I bought this swimsuit top on sale because I wanted another top that I could surf, paddleboard, and play beach sports in. I am in my 20s, 6ft tall, about 160lbs, 36D cup with an athletic build and I love to stay active. I also live at the beach, so I am constantly on the search for good quality swimsuits that support me but still look my age and cu... Read Morete. I haven't used this top yet because its still winter...but just from trying it on I know that it will be one of my favorites this summer :)
Great for small chested women!
Im 56 130lbs and ordered a small. This is my new favorite swim top and in all likelihood, I will continue to purchase this top until Patagonia stops carrying it. As a small chested woman it can be difficult to find a swim top that doesnt accentuate the lack thereof, and this style makes me feel super confident. It is a tight fit, but I have both br... Read Moreoad shoulders and a large rib cage so I expected that when I ordered. The Nanogrip material is incredible. Ive worn this all day swimming, paddling, under a wetsuit... you name it, this bathing suit doesnt budge. I do agree with other reviewers that the modesty padding does need to be secured in some way (or you have to manually reposition it each time you put the top on), but it is truly my only complaint. Well done Patagonia! Dont you dare discontinue this style!
Comfortable but annoying cups
All in all this is probably the most comfortable bikini top I've ever owned. It is absolutely beautiful, very flattering, and I love how easy it is to move and be active while wearing it. However, I find myself looking for a different one purely due to the somewhat bizarre design of the cups. They bunch up easily and are very hard to adjust du... Read Moree to the small access holes. As others here have noted, it would be better to just have them sewn in - I wouldn't dare to take them out anyway for the fear of never getting them back in.
Exactly what I was looking for
I wanted a sporty bikini top to swim laps in and this is perfect. The high neck looks cute, and is surprisingly comfortable. Nanogrip is awesome- keeps everything in place. I'm 4'11 with a sporty build and broad shoulders. Small fit perfect. Only complaint is that it's hard to readjust the cups.
Great for small chested women
I've purchased two of these tops now and I couldn't be happier. I am smaller chested and it provides enough coverage and is very comfortable while be active in the water. Rafting, sun tanning, paddle boarding, swimming, surfing etc. you name it and this top has you covered. I also burn very easily on my chest and this top allows me so muc... Read Moreh more versatility than any other swimsuit top I've found. The nanogrip fabric holds up wash after wash.
Love this swim top!
Okay Im small chested and saggy after three kids but this suit has wonderful security for the girls without needing cleavage to look cute. It covers the upper chest which is great for sun protection since it doesnt seem to matter how much sunscreen I use up there - Im always burnt. We have a pool and live in it all summer. This my go-to suit and Im... Read More going to buy more! Thank you, Patagonia, for making the perfect swim top that ensures my upper chest stays protected from the sun!
Excellent Quality and Coverage
I ordered this additional swim top to go with my Nanogrip top and bottoms as I wanted another full coverage option to wear while playing with my two small boys. I found the fit true to size and the overall coverage excellent, with good compression and a very comfortable fit. This is a great option for anyone looking to be very active and wanting a ... Read Morelittle more coverage and security in front; the open back is a nice compliment aesthetically. The Nanogrip technology ensures these suits stay in place regardless of the activity! I can already tell this will be a well-loved and well-used suit and gives me the confidence to keep up with my two very active little boys.
Perfect for Larger Cup/Smaller Band Sized Women
My typical bra size is 36E or 34F, and this is the very first swim top out of dozens I've tried that gave me full coverage and support without any awkward gaps, tight spots, or unflattering shape. The Nanogrip keeps everything covered and in place, and I feel super confident taking on any wave; definitely will be buying more of this style! Tha... Read Morenk you to Patagonia for the wonderful combo of fit, style, and fabric technology!
Good, but one glitch
I really love this top. The fit is great, a bit tighter on my athletic frame than I was expecting from reading the other reviews. I have broad shoulders, and a muscular back. The one small glitch that I really wish I could change, and actually might take it off and see it back up, is the back three straps that cross horizontally. The top strap from... Read More the right side, connects to the bottom of the left side. So when putting the top on, it feels terrible, I’m constantly having someone else adjust the three straps so they don’t bunch up. I think if the straps just went straight across, this could be easily avoided and would likely be much more comfortable. Other than that, it’s great for swimming and activities in the water, no worries on accidentally slipping out! Overall awesome, just couldn’t give it five stars because of these silly straps at the back!
love everything but the padding
I love this top. It's cute, fits great (5'9", 140lbs - size S) and stays on like it's glued to me! So what's keeping me from giving it that 5th star? The first time I washed this top, the padding got all wadded up inside and the hole provided in the side to access the padding is like 1cm wide - no way I could get in there t... Read Moreo fix it. So I just pulled it out. Maybe that's what you're supposed to do? I've seen lots of other Patagonia swimwear reviews with this same complaint. Please either sew it in place or leave it out!
Yes! A swim top that is supportive, covers everything, comfortable, no clips or strings! It is over the head simple. When buying dresses the chest always hits to high for me—I was afraid of this non-adjustable top for that reason. Not to worry. It accommodates any figure. I’m very pleased. (bra size: 36C I went with M because a large would be too l... Read Moreoose when wet.)
Wanted to love it.
I loved the front and the full coverage. The design of the straps in the back, while cute, was very uncomfortable. There is a thick lump of straps that dug into my back. The sizing was good (Small- I'm a 30DD) and I love the fabric. Just not the back. Would love this front with the bottom turn back or something similar that lies flat for all d... Read Moreay comfort.
Thanks so much for the feedback on this and we are sorry to hear that the design in the back was uncomfortable for you.

We are here to [help](https://www.patagonia.com/customer-service.html#searchterm=contact) if you need it!
Great top for coverage and big boobs!
I love this swimsuit top! I like to be more modest when wearing a swimsuit and this one made me feel super comfortable in my skin. The coverage is excellent and it looks cute too! For reference, I am a 32DDD, but was completely covered up, no spillage anywhere! The back is nice because there are no clasps or ties, although the way the back straps f...

Snug as a bug!
This bathing suit top is not great for tan lines but it is amazing for feeling secure and comfortable while doing all sorts of activities. I wore this top last summer while playing with my nieces at the beach. I ran around and got pummeled with waves and never once felt uncomfortable. I am normally a 32D and the small was a great fit for me!
