Advocate Apparel Inspired by THE ATLANTIC SPOTTED DOLPHIN (STENELLA FRONTALIS)

Atlantic spotted dolphin (Stenella frontalis), are the more frequently seen of two different species of spotted dolphins found in the Abacos; the other species is the pan-tropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata). Spotted dolphins are not born with spots, but actually accumulate them as they mature, becoming quite mottled-looking as adults. Hence, young spotted dolphins are often confused with bottlenose dolphins, and sometimes the two species will interact, which adds to the confusion. Spotted dolphins have a more slender snout, and although they can almost reach the same length as bottlenose dolphins, they have a smaller girth and thus body weight.

Atlantic spotted dolphins are a year-round resident species in the Abacos. Individuals photo-identified 20 years ago can still be seen ranging along the eastern and southwestern coasts of Abaco. They are commonly seen in groups of 20-50 dolphins in the oceanic waters where they feed on flying fish and squid, and rarely venture on to the bank. However, in the northwestern part of Little Bahama Bank this species can regularly be found along the western edge of the banks during the daytime where they come to rest and socialize.

Love my spots!

This is my 6th legging purchase. I wear them Wing Foiling and SUP Foiling, so they get a lot of water time. Your patterns are so realistic, that I try to only purchase the ones that don’t resemble shark food. I have always bought size S, but this time I decided to try the XS( I was in-between sizes). They fit great!! Actually fit better than the S. I am 5’5, 120 lbs. They fit a little tighter around the waist, and lower legs, which is what I wanted. I love these for the sun protection due to my history of skin cancers. I always get lots of compliments, when wearing them. Thanks so much for such a great product!!

Look great but slightly see through

I love the pattern and they feel good, but if you wear dark underwear you can see them. I'm 5'2 around 200 lbs and carry most of it in my thighs and butt. I got XL and they fit pretty well. Tend to roll a bit at my waist, but not too bad.

Love These

I’m 5’7” and weigh just under 160. The Large fits great and are very flattering. They don’t show through in the backside and are high waisted so you don’t get muffin top.

Love Love these leggings!!

I have been looking for comfortable, high quality swim pants and these are perfect! Love the flattering fit, the softness, and the fact that I can easily make them the length that works best for me. I’m 5’6” weight 130 and the medium fit great. I plan to buy more!

Great print

I love the print I got and the fit of the top! The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the gusset in the crotch of leggings is a bit small. It doesn’t offer as much coverage/discretion as I would like. I think the piece of fabric there should be larger making it more comfortable and flattering.
