Beautiful and made thoughtfully

First , it is as beautiful as the picture. Second it fits really well. I am 5 ‘ 7” 175 lb 34 G on top and was worried. It fits perfect with room across the shoulders to move and the neck is not tight at all. With the added benefit of recycled bottle material and a donation to help the earth.. just WOW. Can’t wait to scuba in my beautiful new suit on my vacation this summer!!

Wore them 24/7 for two days

These are so comfortable I had to make myself take them off to wash them. Please don’t think I’m gross. I go outside often and I’m sun intolerant. I still need a hat & sun screen but this is my new uniform.

Very happy

I am very pleased with this swimsuit. I am 5'8" and weight about 200 lbs. According to measurements I was a L on the lower half and an XL on my upper half (I'm busty with a wide rib cage). I ordered the XL and am so glad I did. I fits well on top and bottom and the fabric feels thick and supportive. The back is a little cheeky... but since it's so modest up top I don't mind. And I finally have a swimsuit I can wear outside in the summer without worrying about my chest and shoulders getting too much sun! I tuck the string in at the back of the neck to prevent my kids from yanking on it while I'm swimming. It's a little tight at the throat, but it's a turtle neck... and I do not find it uncomfortable at all. Yay for buying a swim suit online from a good company and having it actually fit! : )

More then I expect!

So beautiful and fits perfectly

I’m amply busted but average waisted and have a hard time finding tops that fit that aren’t also super wide and long. So finding a suit that I can wear paddle boarding that also looks great and will keep me warm in our chilly PacNW waters is rare. This fits really well. I’m normally between a 12-14 in bottoms, but. 36H up top, and with a long torso to boot. The extra long zipper pull makes it much easier too.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE Floridan Aquifer

Alachua Conservation Trust LogoFlorida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Thankfully there are many passionate citizens and non-profit organizations that advocate for our springs, work to protect them, and raise awareness about their unique beauty as well as their decline. One of these groups is the Alachua Conservation Trust, a non-profit regional land trust created to address the need of protecting critical natural lands from development and degradation in North Central Florida. 10% of profits from our springs prints go their work to conserve, restore and celebrate this important resource.
