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.

I was hesitant, but I love them!

I had the leggings for a long time before I bought one of these tops. I was not sure ~what~ would be visible through the fabric. As someone who doesn't like single-ply swimwear tops, I was a little concerned that these wouldn't fit the bill for me, but then I ordered 2 to match leggings, and huzzah! They are great! These stay on securely for waves or movement, they are comfortable to wear all day and dry fairly quickly! The fabric is double-layered, so there is a bit of coverage. I love that there are no ties- nothing poking me in the back or pressing on my neck. I wear these for swimming or under a sun shirt, for personal and professional water activities. From boating to swimming these are my go-to.
I'm eagerly looking forward to a WL bikini option!

Happy with purchase

This is the third item I’ve purchased from waterlust. I originally tried to buy this top before when they did xs/s combo size. It was just awkwardly big. Now that Waterlust is doing more sizes, I’ve tried it again and I’m so happy with it! Fits comfortably, dries quickly, and is vibrant. I’ve bought the matching 4inch bottoms (great fit!) and the whale shark leggings. Everything I’ve tried has been perfect.

♥️♥️ Best Brand & Products!

I absolutely love these tops. Not only are they gorgeous in person, they fit perfectly based on the sizing guide, and they work wonders for protecting your skin from the sun’s rays. When worn in water, you will be kept cool and protected! Plus, they are quick to dry and extremely comfortable to wear all day. I have a few different tops and bottoms no plan to have one of every design!

Ditch your bikinis

These tops are so comfortable, I'm ditching all my old swimwear. They are flattering and easy to put on and take off.
