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!
Favorite. Clothing. Purchase. Ever.
This suit fits PERFECTLY. Like I’ve never had anything that’s fit me as well as this. I’m an XL and usually the bust and leg holes are too tight in regular bathing suits but this one accommodate everything perfectly. I love it so much I’m going to wear it as a body suit even if im 200 miles from the ocean! I HIGHLY recommend Waterlust’s products. They are sustainable, comfy and great for the environment!
These are SO bad ass, so we’ll patterned and so flattering. I love how they feel, and how I feel in them. I ended up buying 3 more sets of other prints based on the quality and design of these (and the matching top). All my friends love them and they feel so unique and very ME! Plus it looks like I’ve gotten toned and lost weight as soon as I put them on. What’s not to love?
I can't say enough about these Board Shorts. They are so comfortable, and and fit just right! There is nothing to not like about these! There are lots of awesome little attention to details, and have no problem wearing these going from Board to knocking around town or the home. Thank you for the BEST!
This is truly the best sun suit I have ever had. I only wore it today when I first got it. But I went paddle boarding, wore it for zoom meetings, and walked my dog. Everything was comfortable in the foggy weather. I felt like I was wearing a superhero cape, it is that amazing. I am hoping it lasts and I am already looking at new styles. I am a new fan, at 44 years old, an active human, I feel like I’m a gymnast again and can do anything. I ordered a small and fits perfectly. Can’t wait to get another one!
I am just ordering my 7th pair of leggings and 3rd tank top!! I hike in them, yoga in them, swim in them, lounge in them, anything in them!! Best ever and with over 45 years of recreating I can truly say these are the best!!! Oh and the pockets!!! OMG!!!
I am in love with these leggings, and are my new go-to. Not only are they super cute, but they are perfect for every activity (running, yoga, swimming, paddle boarding, lounging). The are super comfortable, fit perfectly, stay in place, and are not see-through (which I was worried about with the color). I kept mine long, but I really appreciate being able to customize the length. The color was spot on, and they look amazing. These were my first pair of Waterlust leggings, and I can't wait to order another. My cat even loves them :)
Aside from the obvious benefit of buying clothes that have a positive impact from the environment, these shorts are PERFECT for me. I’m fairly active and live on an island where rainy runs or sunny swims are daily.
I am 5’8” and 130lbs generally a size 4 or 27-28 pant And bought a size STRONG.
I have a fairly weak upper body as you can tell but I have THIGHS AND A BOOTY THAT DOESNT QUIT. I have ripped many MANY A jean or shorts in my day. These are flexible comfortable and don’t ride up. AND ... drumroll... THEY HAVE TWOOO FUNCTIONAL POCKETS. They’re all around great. They cover all of my butt and an inch or two more which is nice when walking my dog around the neighborhood kids. You won’t regret this solid purchase investment.
8 Month usage update: The drawstring closure kicks butt!! Like so many things, the devil is in the details, and the drawstrings on the board shorts have the details right. We are live aboard sailors and I have worn these shorts for 4-5 days a week, in the Caribbean sun and saltwater, and they have proven durable and tough, extremely comfortable and easy to use. And I never thought I would describe a board short as easy to use, but after you have tried a drawstring system that works so effectively, you realize how crappy your old shorts were. The middle of the drawstring is stitched down so it never becomes asymmetrical and it has just the right amount of friction so the knots never come undone. And the eyelets which have been doused in saltwater maybe 500 times, are not corroded. Truely a great short and is comfortable and can keep up with your active lifestyle.
