Advocate Apparel Inspired by the Floridan Aquifer and springs

Florida 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.

My new favorite gear!

I ordered my first pair of these leggings for fall paddling, and I love them! They’re soft and flexible. They move well on the water and they fit really well. I’m short and extra curvy, and these fit beautifully! Highly recommend!

Sarah Lyon-Hill (Salem, VA, US)
Beautiful and comfortable

These bottoms are so well made and fit perfectly. They are so comfortable. I’ll probably use the for yoga and swimming. I appreciate they have extra long legs that a person can shorten if needed.

Lisa Bergmann (Cheboygan, MI, US)

I have not tried them in the water but I love the colors and the feeling the material

Brittany McLaughlin (Tokyo, 13, JP)

These work great! They look awesome and are surprisingly breathable considering how study and form fitting they are
My one wish is that they were a little higher waisted. I'm 5'6", a dress size 20-22, and I bought the 3x size. The waistband tends to sit in the soft part of my belly, which is less comfortable and less flattering than if it went all the way above it.
Regardless, these fit well, look great, and stay in place with vigorous swimming. Definitely recommend!

Alison Plaza (Boca Raton, FL, US)

The fit is perfect, and they are sooooooo comfortable! Beautiful, comfy and for a good cause!!!!

Great for diving

Love the material, thickness and feel. Love I can get long enough leggings. Looked great for diving this weekend. Only one area of feedback which may only apply to tall girls….the length from crotch to waist is just a little too short for me resulting in a little bit of camel toe. I’m 6ft 1’. An additional half inch would make all the difference.
