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 don’t care for the tops

I would like a longer top. I’m in my sixties and the small top is not flattering at all. If it was longer it would look nice.

Hi, thanks for your feedback! We'll definitely take that into consideration as we hope to slowly expand the product line to offer styles that everyone can be comfortable in.

Fit well, nice length!

These fit well, and I like the adjustable length! I prefer low waistbands and this waistband is high, but it works well because it's easy to fold over to make it lower. I have yet to try the leggings in water, but they seem like they will work great. :) I like the pockets, too.

I was sent the wrong leggings

:( There has been a mix up and I was sent the Fountain of Youth leggings instead of the Mermaid Camo…. Please help.I’m sure this can be resolved.

Comfortable and Sturdy

Wore these during my first outdoor workout in the snow of the season. They were super comfortable and a good weight for intense winter exercise. Plus, the fun colors made me look forward to summer.

Great quality, poor fit

The quality of materials, design, and construction is 5 stars, but the fit is off on my body. It is possible that I could order a size up and that may help, but I ordered my normal size that I would in other clothing/ swim wear (XL) and these just don’t fit the way I had expected. The leggings roll down when I bend over and the top fits more like a sports bra, and I thought it would be a little longer like a crop. I will be sending it back and not sizing up. I don’t really think that a size larger would prevent the leggings from rolling at the top or make the top any longer in the torso. I’m bummed.
