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!
Incredible quality. Every detail considered. Beautiful fabric. I love everything about this company: the real life models who are scientists and beyond, how 10% goes to research and education, how you’ve sent information about the marine animal. I got this suit for sun coverage in Tahiti, but just wore it to the pool the other day. I was so comfortable swimming laps and it was the talk of the pool…everyone wanted the details! Incredible price for what you get!
These leggings are so comfy and versatile. They are thick enough so you feel protected while diving but not too thick that they feel hot or restricting. I have already worn them on several dives and on our boat as well. I love that they are longer so I can pull them over my ankles to protect the heals while diving. When I'm not diving, I fold them under the bottom at my ankle and you can't tell there's extra fabric tucked in. I've already received a ton of compliments.
I have loved Waterlust and their company’s ethics since I discovered them in 2021. The Eagle Ray pattern is my absolute favorite (I have all their other Eagle Ray clothing items), and I was over the moon when Waterlust made an Eagle Ray sun suit. I’m so glad I can use this multifunctional suit to raise awareness for one of my favorite marine creatures! This sun suit is perfect! It gave me just the right amount of coverage and support while playing in the waves with my kids and it felt incredibly comfortable. I can’t wait to pair it with my Eagle Ray shorts or leggings for summer dives (and hopefully see a couple actual Eagle Rays too). Don’t debate if you want one of their sun suits or not, go ahead and add one to your cart now. If you’re debating on what pattern, in my completely biased opinion, the Eagle Ray pattern is the best. I ordered a Mighty (also three cheers for their sizing terminology) which fit true to size for me.
Fits amazing, feels amazing, and I love cause. As a scientific diver who is underwater 6 hours a day studying coral, no one compares to this brand with the comfort, durability, and vibrancy of the colors. I purchased my first one a year ago and I washed it several times a week and it’s still in perfect condition. I bought another and sadly lost it, but gave in and got myself 3 more with different patterns, worth the money. Thanks!
I love this set! The colors are brilliant...stunning both in and out of the water. I am a self-proclaimed fabric snob and am blown away by both the feel of the material and the overall quality of the cut and stitching. I guess that is what happens when marine scientists turn apparel aficionados :-) I am 5 ft. 8 in tall and weigh 125 lbs. I followed the online size guide, and the fit for the suit, top and leggings is accurate...just the right amount of stretch to cover all the right places but still feel sporty. Each piece is great on its own for warm water freediving. One bonus is pulling the matching leggings over the sun suit for full coverage in colder waters. The weight of the fabric is terrific for that kind of layering. Now, my only issue is wanting a set in every pattern!
Now this is the epitome of what excellence in product development is when a dedicated, specialized, caring company like Waterlust unleashes its creativity and competence. This is just the absolute best fitting water suit that I've worn. I'm a fan!
