    Comfortable in general

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    Fit:True to size
    Size BoughtM
    Height5` 6"
    Weight126 lbs

    I wore it a few times. My first impression is that It’s Very comfortable and light, and doesn’t compress the ribs- which is fantastic. The only thing I would say- which won’t always be a problem- is that when I have a neck pain my shoulder muscles (trapezius) become irritated with the straps because they are narrow, so it gives me the sensation that they are digging in. However, this is just a sensation. When I’m not complaining of any existing neck pain/tension, the bra is fantastic and deserves a 5-star. I’m actually looking to purchase another one with the same quality and larger straps.

    Comfortable, cute, breathable

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size
    Size BoughtSmall
    Height5` 3"
    Weight114 lbs

    I wear this bra every single weekend if I'm going to be outside. I have worn it both with the cups and without, depending on what I'm wearing over the top, and it is comfortable regardless. I live in a humid, hot place, and it does a pretty good job of being breathable. It still gets soaked when I'm sweating, but it dries out pretty quickly. I bought this in a small, because I value comfort over support since I am fairly small chested at 32C. I don't wear it during high impact activities other than biking, and I think it has plenty of support for that. It's a staple in my wardrobe.

    Sports bra without the sports

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

    Gave this as a gift for my girlfriend and have some feedback: "I needed some new sports bras and saw this particular one had great reviews. Granted the reviews were mostly from women who are a bit smaller than me. I am a 34D and 5'4" about 135lbs. I bought a small and medium and the medium definitely fit me best. This bra doesn't offer much support and I won't use it to work out in at all but it will work for me as a great hangout bra. Even though it's low cut and lots of cleavage shows, it does have wide coverage which for me is really important. I barely feel it there and it's pretty comfortable. Hope it holds up well in the long run!"

    I purchased 2 of these bras for hiking, biking and other activities. Very breathable wicking material for such activities.

    Still the best, colors fit differently

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:Runs small

    This is my fourth Barely Bra over the years, and it is still the most comfortable and flattering option out there. This new version is a little different, but I think it’s even better! Thinner material, and the pads are much more streamlined/thinner, which looks so much better. Adjustable straps would be the dream. I am a 36A, and wear a size M. Another important note is that the same size can fit differently based on the color! For instance, I recently purchased the Dolomite Blue and Rosewater both in size M, and the band size is quite different. Disappointing that sizing isn’t consistent. See photo.

    Weird Fit

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:Runs small

    I like this bra, but the fit is a little off for me. I went with the sizing chart recommendation. The band is fine and not too tight, but the straps are a smidge too short and dig into my shoulders a little. Because of that the bra rises up a little bit and doesn't sit flush against my ribs. I don't think that sizing up would solve all the fit issues for me.

    I Have 3

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:True to size
    Size BoughtXS
    Height5` 2"
    Weight105 lbs

    I just ordered my third one! I've been eyeballing this bra for a while and finally bought it in black. I'm in love -- this is a great low profile bra to wear under pretty much anything and you can't even tell it's there! It has good coverage and there aren't any hard lines that show through your shirts -- the support is better than expected as well. These come with modesty cups which are removable and I find it more comfortable without the cups in. I wouldn't wear this for anything more active than yoga -- but it's not really designed for high impact activities. I have an average cup size but small shoulders so while it's a little snug in the chest for me, an XS fits great in the shoulders/underarms/back without being uncomfortable. The material is also very breathable and fairly thin if you take out the modesty cups. This might be my favorite bra from Patagonia -- I have the Active Mesh Bra as well but this one runs tighter. The Barely Bra is definitely my go to for uber comfortable casual wear!

    A cute Sports Bra!

    Familiarity:I've used it several times
    Fit:Runs small
    Size Boughtsmall
    Height5` 9"
    Weight135 lbs

    This is so cute for being a sports bra! Perfect for working out, yoga, hiking, or just wearing everyday. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because it's a little tight on me. I got the small because my cup size is.... let's face it...tiny. Barely A size. But I am too wide for a size small. Medium I would have been swimming in though.

    Love these bras

    I have been wearing these bras for a long time, this one has a new fit and fabric. It has slightly less coverage than the previous generations and a little tighter fit - I have a slight preference for the previous style, but these are also good, and the fabric decorative weave is pretty.

    Super comfortable bra!

    I originally ordered an XS, but it was too small so I got the small and it fits very well. I love the pretty blue color and pattern, and the fabric is nice and soft. I've worn it during day hikes and a backpacking trip and it is so comfortable that you forget it's there.

    Better even than the last version

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
    Fit:True to size
    Size BoughtSmall
    Height5` 1"
    Weight110 lbs

    This bra has been updated to use less fabric, therefore covering less skin while still providing the same support. It also seems like the fabric might be slightly different - my only complaint about the last barely bra was that the fabric (not straps) lost some of the stretchy oopmh after wearing for multiple days, and after lots of washes. This one seems like it's going to be a bit tougher, and all while being even more comfortable. I wear a 32 b/c and the small is perfect.

    Barely Bra, But Extremely Flattering

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

    I'm in love with this bra. I bought my first one 6 years ago and have been addicted ever since. I now have multiple pairs (in every color--my favorite is Dolomite Blue) and wear them nearly every day. It is breathable, SO comfortable, dries quickly, and is the most flattering active bra I've ever owned. I've worn it to work and yoga, biking, hiking, and rock climbing! I would even wear it running if it had more support. Like most Patagonia products, they withstand the test of time (I still have the original one!). Buy one now! (I should mention that I have a fairly small chest (B cups) and can't speak for someone with B+ cup.)

    This bra is super comfy! You have the options to take out the pads too! I bought this a couple times in different colors and would suggest buying one size bigger than you would think. I purchased medium at first and then a large the next time.

    This is my favorite everyday bra and yoga bra. It’s true to size, lovely shape, and there’s no slippage. I’d love to have one in each color, but for now, I’ll settle for black...
