Advocate Apparel Inspired by the largest fish in the sea, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus)

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within.

Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance. Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong.

“Waterlust's support provides critical seed funding for us to rapidly develop and implement whale shark conservation projects in areas where this globally-endangered species is most at risk. This includes Mozambique, where our research and awareness work helped the government decide to fully protect whale sharks just a few weeks ago. We love working with a company that is so committed to making a positive change in the world.”

Nicest top I could find

I searched and searched for a functional top as a large breasted woman. I needed something to work! Not look sexy and then fall apart. This top looks good, covers well, and gives support. I love the styling. It's classy.

The Sizing Chart is so so wrong

The size chart is really wrong and unfortunately I bought this two weeks before a four week vacation, so by the time I got back and did laundry, the tag had been removed and the exchange window closed. It is super sad because I love the product and material, but it squeezes the life out of me and makes it hard to breathe so I can’t wear it. Size up!

The best!

This is so cute and super comfy. The size chart was also right on point for me (size S for 32D). I can't wait to order more!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

This has become my new favorite top for not only surfing and diving but also jujitsu and yoga too! It’s comfortable, high quality material and doesn’t have those annoying bra pads (but it’s thick material and doesn’t need it). I’m going to purchase more styles for sure!
