The coral reef ecosystems that cover our globe provide essential food and habitat to over 25% of all marine life. The parrotfish is a common animal found among these ecosystems and are a crucial keystone species, responsible for cleaning the corals from harmful algae. The abundance of parrotfish can be related directly to the health of our coral reef ecosystems.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the spotted parrotfish (cetoscarus ocellatus)

While parrotfish come in many amazing colors and patterns, this print is inspired by a male, terminal phase spotted parrotfish, native to the Indo-Pacific. Considered the most effective reef grazer, parrotfish serve an important function in maintaining the health of coral reefs. In fact, a 2014 IUCN report surveyed the health of Caribbean coral reefs from 1970-2012 and found that one of the most impactful actions we can take to restore the health of coral reef habitat is to protect parrotfish!

If that isn’t reason enough to love these bright and beautiful fish, an individual poops up to 200 lbs of sand a year, a critical source of sediment for beaches! For example, in Vakkaru Island in the Maldives, a 2015 study found that over 85% of their beach sand had been produced by parrotfish!

I'm obsessed

My only goal for my recent vacation was to wear my parrotfish suit and get a photo! It was perfect for my dive: super comfortable, just warm enough, and it looked so beautiful under water! I love it SO MUCH. (I wore my matching headband as well).

C.V. (Lakeland, FL, US)
Amazing looking sun protection!

I had been waiting for a Parrot Fish sun suit to come out and I am so happy it finally did! Super comfortable and great for sun protection. I wear this both scuba diving and to the beach…fits great. I am 5’4” and 155 lbs and wear a size L which fits great.

Annette W. (Brisbane, QLD, AU)

Wow! I wish I had ordered this a long time ago! The quality is perfection, the colour and fit, amazing! I went on a snorkeling adventure in the Whitsundays on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, and everyone on the tour just LOVED my Parrotfish sun suit and leggings! I was dubbed the queen of the parrotfish! Thank you Waterlust! Highly, highly recommend to all ocean lovers and beyond!

Cari Mackey (Panama City, 8, PA)
Great fit, quality construction and materials.

The material feels amazing, it’s strong with attention to finishing details like the thumbholes and neckline giving great sun protection and durability. I love the feminine colors and pattern - so much fun. The tight fit is perfect for surfing & crashing without movement and shifting however, the butt is a bit scant leading to a bit of a wedgie. I wear the matching tights for full coverage from the sun and cheek exposure (nobody wants to see my white bootie) so I am really excited for the full sun suit to become available. Overall this product is a 10 out of 5 stars so far. The quality of construction along with the sustainability story of these garments is quite incredible and impressive. Thank you Waterlust!

XL Parrotfish Protection Sun Suit

I was super lucky to have won my sun suit on an Instagram giveaway. I've followed Waterlust for years on social media but had not actually purchased any products prior to winning this. The suit is very well made. I'd consider it more in the category of "gear" instead of it being just a bathing suit because it seems quite durable. I'm 5'5" and about 180 lbs, and the XL suit fits me well. It is a little cheeky (or maybe my butt is just big). Anyways, I liked it so much that I just ordered 5 new items for myself and my husband... Now I'm waiting for kid sizes to be released!

Fits well, color not as vibrant

This is my second purchase from Waterlust. I have been eyeing the Parrotfish leggings and sun suit for a year and I'm so glad this company carries extended sizes. I ordered up a size (3XL) and although both the leggings and the suit are slightly loose, I prefer them to the 2XL I ordered in the last pair of leggings and I need the extra length of the 3XL for my longer torso.
My only complaint is that the colors are no where near as vibrant (except on the sleeves and the bottoms of the leggings) as they are in the picture. I chose parrotfish because it's the only style with fun colors.
