Enjoy summer in this tank!
July 15, 2012

This tank top is really great in many ways. It's very comfortable, both in style and in material. Black of course looks great with anything, and it especially looks nice with a casual skirt. I like it enough to actually buy it in another color if it is available. Blue or yellow would be quite nice. The design of this tank is unique, with a twist in the middle of the chest, and the material is very soft and almost silky. It is not too low-cut and it is appropriate for a get together with friends or for a date with a new beau. I'm really glad I bought this tank, and it reinforces my trust in Patagonia as a quality company.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Great value, uniqueness

Absolutely perfect!
June 27, 2011

I bought this top in blue and the color is absolutely gorgeous! The fit is consistent with other Patagonia products. I'm 5'8" tall and 130 pounds, and the small was perfect for me. I love the slim, feminine fit of this tank top--it makes me feel pretty even when I'm getting dirty on the trail! The fabric is high quality. Stains are easy to remove, it dries quickly, and it ventilates well. The neckline is really cute without being over-dramatic. The length is long enough that you'll never risk exposing your midriff, but nowhere near long enough to be mistaken for a tunic. The hem hits right at the top of my pelvic bones. I also love that I can dress this top up or down, and it also wears well in the office! I'm planning to get a second (or even a third) because the style is just that great. Another great piece of clothing from Patagonia!

Pros: Lasts forever, Performance, Great value, versatile

Perfect shirt for Sailing in the summer.

Bandha Top
May 11, 2011

I'm 1.61m, 34C & usually wear M size for tops. The Bandha top fits true-to-size and due to its stretchy material, is super comfortable and allows ease of movement. Living in the humid tropics, this top is perfect, nice and cool and seems to help wick sweat away. It gives a nice shape to the torso without being too figure hugging. The Vneck twist neckline is cute and unique and modest enough that it doesn't gape when bending over. I bought the Mosaic/ Smoke top and liked it so much after wearing it for 1 day that I immediately went online and ordered the same top in Mosaic/ Current after getting a compliment from colleagues on how good it looks on me :) For me, the price is abit on the high side for a top but figure it's worth paying for the comfort and design.

Pros: Great design, Great value, Cons: Cost

Attractive top!
May 20, 2009

The top looks great with jeans, capris, shorts, and skirts! It's very flattering. It's stretchy, but not clingy, and offers good coverage across the bust - if you're worried about exposing too much skin like I am. For reference, I'm 5'4", and I bought the 'small' size. The length is a little longer than I prefer, but I still like it more than the length of the previous version.

Versatile, effortless and eye-catching
September 16, 2010

The Patagonia Bandha top manages to get it right. Versatile, it can dress up or down skirts, pants or jeans for an evening or day look. Effortless to wear, it wicks moisture and allows for comfort in at least three seasons. Eye catching....the twist in front adds interest and a flattering design. I have received comments each and every time I put this on. Best of all, the top is so easy to care for and travels well. I'd highly recommend it . And,service at Altrec is the best!

I love this style!
March 27, 2010

I already had one Patagonia Bandha shirt but was happy to see this one on sale because I really love the style. The fabric is great and travels really well. I'd recommend that everyone have at least one of these versatile tops!

Great top
August 29, 2008

I like the dress version so much, that I got the top in black, it looks great with shorts or skirts

Very comfortable and stylish
August 16, 2008

Love this top. It looks great with shorts and a skirt. I have it in 3 colors. I do like the short length.

Comfy, flattering top
June 20, 2011

I love this top. I am small busted and this shirt is very flattering. It fits true to size and is very comfortable. I also really like the longer length of the top...good for working out.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance

this is my second bandha top!
August 02, 2010

Bought one a few years ago- same great top, though longer than the old ones and a little tighter. Love it =)

Attractive, but watch out for fit
May 25, 2010

This is a very pretty feminine top that also feels nice. Definitely needed to go up a size for the bust. I also like that it is a little longer than a lot of today's shrunken tops.


Great Top

I love this top ! Fitted , but not to tight . Very flattering . M fits great ...I am 5'5 138 lbs .Great color choices .


flattering top
September 20, 2010

I love these tops and have several of them. They are longer than the original ones and the fabric seems lighter, but the fit is the same. I am 5'4" 125 lbs and the medium fits perfectly

Really comfortable and a great deal. Flexible for wearing to meetings and on hikes. A bit longer than I would like, which is unusual for patagonia. Overall a great purchase.

Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Cons: too long

Great top but too shiny
April 02, 2010

I love the fit & feel of this top. Deep narrow V neck is flattering, the long length makes it great when on my bike, fabric is soft and stretchy, & wicks well. My only small complaint is that it is ever-so-slightly shiny (in black anyway). I wear this top out-and-about, as well as out for dinner etc. I'm 5 7, 140 pounds, and medium is great.

Great top
July 01, 2010

I wear this top to yoga and out on the town. Very versatile and comfortable. I am 5'7", small busted and it is flattering. I bought a medium and it fits excellent. I would recommend this to a friend.

A great top, if you wear something under it
February 21, 2011

This is a sharp looking top and perfect for yoga. I wear a camisole under it because the material is rather thin and shows too many bulges. The styling is great, especially the neck line. Once again I have to put in a plea for petite sizes. I had to shorten the straps myself in order to make this wearable.

Awesome top! Want more!
November 15, 2008

Really comfortable and well made top! Definitely worth buying and fits great! You can wear it anywhere. Even for a night on the town!

I love this shirt
July 01, 2009

I love this shirt, and I have an older one that I wear all the time. The new ones are longer than the old ones though, and I'm not crazy about the length. I'm going to hem mine and then it will be perfect.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
June 01, 2010

This top is wonderful. I have four now, two XS because I got them really cheap and two S (5'6", 120 lbs., 32B). The XS is great for wearing with a sports bra--highly recommend the Patagonia Active Mesh Bra, which looks cute peeking out the front. The S is great for wearing with a regular bra. It completely hides bra straps. I will keep buying this shirt, as long as Patagonia comes up with more colors and patterns. I did order the color "Natural" and had to return because the knot seemed funky and didn't lay right. It was probably just that particular shirt, though. Other than that, "Natural" is a great color, and a nude bra is invisible beneath it. Also, I love the length on this shirt. I have a long torso, and the bandha top is plenty long. If you don't own this top, you should. If you do own it, buy a bandha dress. You won't regret it!


dress up or down
September 28, 2009

I bought this shirt to go out on a nice dinner date. The catch was we biked there. So it worked perfectly! It still looked dressy enough after a 5 mile ride. I'm a size 4-6 depending on the brand - I bought this in medium but probably should have gone to a small. It still looks fine but if I could do it over I would do the small.

from Portland, OR

Super flattering!
October 19, 2010

This top is really versatile and would be great for travel! I'm 5'8 and usually wear a size 4 to 6 and feel the medium fits me perfectly. It's hard to find a feminine moisture wicking top that doesn't look like you are about to go for a hike. This will be going with me on my next trip to SE Asia.

Great sleeveless top ... for anything!
January 08, 2013

I loved this sleeveless Patagonia top. First of all, it's style is super flattering. It's fit is snug enough and its v-neck is the perfect depth. The weight of the top is great too. It's not too thin and clingy. It's just thick enough. I've worn this top as a casual top when going for a walk on a hot day and then wore it one evening to go out to dinner with a black skirt. It's a great top for traveling too -- doesn't wrinkle and, again, can be worn during the day and at night! The fit is exactly as the Size Chart recommends. I've found that Patagonia is pretty consistent with their sizing. This is a great top that you'll wear more often than you think!!! P.S I've also washed (not dried) it and it came out perfectly.

Cute top!
May 27, 2011

I've been wearing this with my Patagonia black morning glory skirt. Fits just right, snug but not too tight in the bust (I'm a C cup) and not too tight in the belly (I've had 2 babies!).

Pros: Great design

fun, comfy top!
June 23, 2009

This is my second bandha top and it definitely deserves the rave reviews. The material drapes beautifully, doesn't wrinkle very much, is cool and comfortable, and top is stylish enough to dress up or down. I'm not a tall person so the top is a bit long, but that's just fine with me.

Flattering top, lovely fabric
August 10, 2010

A beautiful top in easy to care for fabric. I own two, size small, which is perfect for my 34B, 5'7, medium build frame. I hope Patagonia never stops making this top! Perfect dressed up or down, it's a wardrobe staple!

Great length for easy movement
January 06, 2011

No complaints whatsoever with this top other than I wish they had more color choices in stock in medium. I rotate through the ones I do have doing yoga 5x a week. Perfect length for folks with longer torsos. Two thumbs up!

Pros: Performance

New longer length is very disappointing...
August 03, 2009

I used to LOVE the Bandha top and I own at least 6 of them. Each year I look forward to the new colors. I am returning the last one I purchased, as the top has been lengthened significantly -- it's about SIX inches LONGER than all the other tops I've purchased. I'm very small-chested & 5'-1" and this top used to be incredibly flattering, athletic & even sexy. Now the end of the top sits right above the bottom of my butt & puffs out at the stomach and sides. It looks frumpy and completely unflattering. I was devoted to this top, but this last one will be returned & I won't buy the new colors. Very disappointed.

Amazing top
July 02, 2010

I now have two of these tops. I appreciate the v-front that is flattering and it doesn't show more skin than I want. Definitely a trim fit that is suited to active wear and can be dressed up.


nice top
April 07, 2010

I like the stye of this shirt - flattering, however it is definitely a trim fit. I normally would wear a small, but the medium is even tight in this style, so be careful! The bramble earthenware color is beautiful.

Very nice shirt for warmer weather. Great material, soft, contoured fit. Suitable for outdoor activities with my family and also to wear out to dinner.

Pros: Great design

Great top!
December 16, 2009

This top fit perfectly. Unfortunately, I ordered the discontinued orangish, salmonish shade, which was very unflattering. I had to return it, but I have since ordered the same shirt in two other colors.


fabulous, flattering top!
August 26, 2008

Such a well-made, great feeling, and very flattering top. Bought a blue one, had so many compliments, that I bought a black one next. Great for a hike, and just as nice for a night out with a skirt!


Great shirt
January 22, 2010

I got this shirt for trip to Flordia. It was perfect. It traveled well, looked great, washed easy, and if it got wet in the ocean, it was no problem because it dried quick. I would buy it again!!! I did go for a bigger size because I don't like stuff too tight.

April 29, 2011

This is a beautiful top! Great quality and true to size for me. I purchased the mosaic/currant color. It works well with jeans or shorts or as a work-out top.

Great multipurpose shirt
July 28, 2009

I love that I can wear this top hiking, biking, or to yoga and then pull on a skirt to dress it up for a meal out. It's cool, comfortable and colorful and I appreciate the longer length. I was a little uncertain at first about the "dip" in front, but no problems with the twist feature there and it flatters even someone like me with a smaller chest. I'm planning on getting another color with the sale on!

This top is great for all of my outdoor adventures it wicks moisure away but is lightweight enough to breathe. It is also a very pretty top and can be worn out on the town.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use

love it
August 10, 2009

I love this top. I bought one at Patagonia online, and then found this website, which I used to buy a second one. As a petite, ~20 year old woman, I love the length of this top because it comes down to my hips. I can wear it with my lower-cut jeans or tuck it in for more formal occasions. It is flattering but modest, perfect for the beach, a nice dinner out, a trip to the grocery store, or class. Next time it goes on sale, I'm going to buy another!


fantastic top
August 04, 2009

I LOVE the Bandha top! I'm a big fan of the longer length, so I'm happy with the 2009 version, but if long length is an issue, you'll want to avoid the Mamaki blue and green, as these are about 1" longer than the solid colors. This top has full back coverage, nice for those of us who need sun protection, plus it's not out of place at work either. Dresses up or down, durable fabric, flattering v-neck, can even be layered if you don't mind the twist at the breastbone.

September 03, 2008

I have the shorter tops and like that length. It says it's only 2" longer so I didn't think that would be a big deal. However, mine is 4 1/2" longer. I will get it shortened. On a positive note, the color lupine is great.

Love This Top!
April 10, 2009

I bought this top based on the rave reviews it received, and I have to agree. The fit is very flattering - form-fitting but not tight. It can be worn as a casual top or somewhat dressy. I also bought the dress version and love that too!
