This is probably the best swimming/sun suit I have ever purchased. I’m 5/10 and weight 225 with wide hips/thighs and the 1x fits me perfect! I always had issues with one pieces fitting me right but this fit like a dream. The sleeves have a little bit more space around the wrists so things like watches or other wrist wraps don’t push the material. The thumb holes are awesome and don’t feel like they are straining my hands while swimming or paddling. I’ve gone spearfishing and kayaking in this and did not get charred to a cinder from the sun! The material dried pretty quick out of the water. Overall I’m definitely going to get more and honestly I’d give it more stars if I could!
I haven't worn it in the water yet, but plan on it during our upcoming vacation. It fits perfectly, and the material is thick (though not too much so) and seems very sturdy. Would highly recommend for anyone who isn't a huge fan of sunscreen and loves the whimsy of feeling like a baby whale shark! I'm 5'6.5" 135-140 lbs and am typically a med/large bottom and small/medium top. The medium is perfect.
Whale sharks are my favorite and when I came across this hat I was so excited! I was not disappointed by the quality, I can't wait to get out on the water with it. It fits bigger like a trucker hat should. I LOVE the educational emails that waterlust sends out after you order something from them! Overall I'm very happy with my purchase and will be ordering more from them in the future!
This suit is very comfortable and fits great. I love the material. I’m 5’8 and 150 lbs. I have a somewhat longer torso. The Medium fits perfectly. GET ONE!!
If you are iffy about the price or the sizing, honestly just measure and go for it! I waited over a year to buy this suit and as soon as I got it there were 0 regrets. It fits extremely well, is made of an incredibly impressive and durable material and looks gorgeous.
I was recently in Mexico on a pelagic safari. This is where I discovered Waterlust swim leggings. Our guides were wearing all sort of super fun prints. I bought the Whale Sharks ones first since I love these sharks, but then also the Tiger Sharks (yes I love sharks) and the Orcas ones because I love Orcas and I am from Pacific Northwest where we have resident Orcas. I love the leggings. They feel great. So far I used them only in the pool but they keep me warm, the dry fast and the keep their shape. I also bought the swim tops and the swim shirts and I cannot wait to use them in the Ocean in my next trip where I am sure they’ll do great and protect me from the sun. But the thing I love the most is that a percentage of profits goes to conservation of these amazing creatures and I really enjoy receiving the newsletter and getting a lot of very interesting information. My son studies oceanography and there is plenty of information about recent research that is very interesting and that I forward to him too. Kudos to whoever had the idea to create this wonderful company. I feel great wearing your clothes and knowing I am doing a little bit to help protect these animals. Keep up the fantastic work you are doing! By the way, I am 5.8 ft and 158 lb and I got the Medium size leggings fit great.
This design is STUNNING. I thought nothing could top the sea turtle sunsuit, but here we are. When I wear the Mantis leggings and swim top, I feel like the lovechild of the predator and my little pony. And, that's just how I like it. Truly, between the construction and the vibrance of this design, Waterlust has outdone themselves again.
Redheaded purchaser. Day 2 boating and snorkeling in Marathon, FL. Status: Out of 6 people, I'm the only one not sunburned. Usually, I'm the first. Well worth the price. Fit was also perfect. I wear a 16/18 and am 5'8. The 2x fit perfectly.
Simply stated, these are a fantastic product! I have fair skin and wanted extra protection on an upcoming trip to Hawaii. These leggings have exceeded all expectations. High quality material and construction, they are great in the water. The material adheres to your skin and you forget you're wearing them. Sand and rocks don't seem to have any impact and after a week of daily use, they still look new. Most importantly, no sun burn!
I've also used them for yoga/exercise and they perform equally as well.
Regarding the size, I wear a 36" jeans size and went with a large. They fit well. And having long legs, I appreciate the unfinished, long inseam.
I had been searching for gender neutral swim suits for almost a month. I found this website when I discovered my professor, who was an environmentalist and into marine life, had passed. I took it as a sign. I love the way this site lifts the shopper up. These shorts fit me perfectly! I am 5'5" and 163lbs. I loved being able to compare to the models 😍
I purchased this suit specifically to go down to the Caribbean. I am an extremely pale person who lives in a northern climate and had absolutely no base tan to speak of and was very worried about burning on the five hour dive trips that I was scheduled for.
This suit was perfect.
The water was warm (25C) and the sun was hot (29C) but I was never at risk of overheating on the surface. The suit was very comfortable to dive with by itself (and, on a later dive, made an excellent rashguard under a 5MM suit that made it vastly easier to get in and out of than a regular suit alone). I did have to wear a separate swim bra underneath because I am very busty (38H in US Size) but didn't feel the need for anything else.
For sizing purposes, this was an XL and I measure in a Size 16/XL US for most tops and 12/14/L in bottoms. I weigh in just under 200 lbs. I could easily have sized down.
Im a nonbinary person and swimshopping is a nightmare. i really struggle to find swim bottoms that come up high enough to cover my back end and dont slide when i get in the water. these fit great, covered every thing and stayed on, i do wish they came in the little bit longer short but it wasnt a deal breaker for me.Ive also had suits that dont hold up well in salt water, not these bad boys, still as sleek as day 1 no pilling or thinning material. I love how cool the shark pattern makesme feel too and the sustainable packaging and little postcard with information about tiger sharks, super cool company overall.
I have two Scubapro dive skins and I haven’t touched them since my Waterlust one arrived. It is the most comfortable and BEST skin I’ve used. The material is excellent, I love that I can customize the length and it is SO comfy. The swim tops and leggings are also great! My daughter and I are hooked! Please make the spotted eagle ray in a full suit!
Fit is great. I like the sturdy feel of the material while it still flows and stretches wonderfully. I like the print and I feel it’s very important that it is made of recycled materials and my purchase supports a cause I believe in. If there is such a thing as conscious consumerism, this is it for me.
A sun kissed way to be in your clothes! I am a deeply dedicated Waterlust advocate. I can't wait to wake up in the morning and get into my Waterlust swim clothes for an open water swim in the Sea of Cortez. I also own a sportfishing business and quickly ordered this sun shirt to be assured I was covered when on the sea pursuing fish, jumping in with whales, dolphins, manta rays. It's the THING! So soft, perfect fit, great hood, finger holes for hand sun protection. I have great expectations of Waterlust and they literally always exceed them. Tried and true for certain! I am actually printing our team information on this shirt for the Bisbee East Cape Offshore Tournament in August as I wasn't interested in the 'other' shirt that was ordered. I had a melanoma diagnosis four years ago and am super diligent now in the Southern Baja sun and Waterlust helps keep me safe, plus makes me feel and look awesome!
