Very Nice

Love the design and material. However, I wish they offered them in individual lengths instead of putting bar tacks to cut your own length. The farther you go up the wider the “ankle” part gets. Other than that love!

WOW!

WOW, just WOW! First off, the leggings is AMAZING! The print looks even better in person, the material is thick and stretchy, and absolutely love the pockets. Even better, I can't believe it is made out of recycled bottles! And unfortunately, I underestimated my pandemic weight-gain lol, and had to exchange for the next size up. The exchange process was easy and seamless. Customer service is also prompt and amazing. I am incredibly impressed by every aspect of this company and I can't wait to buy my next batch of items from them. Please hurry up and restock the men's whale shark and tiger shark boardshorts so I can buy them for my hubs!

Nice water glide but that Camel toe.

I swam in them for two Miles open water. I like the material way more than the Xcel swim pant fabric. This material really glides through the water. This fabric is perfectly stretchy and I don’t need to adjust these pants in the water. The excel swim leggings always seem to bunch around the back of my knees these don’t. Also these have more room in the seat than the xcel. The only down side is wicked camel toe when on dry land. Except for the camel toe, I’d buy these all day long in every pattern.

As always - The Best Ever

Once again Waterlust gets an A+ on swim leggings: quality (matching pattern at seams, excellent construction, made in Guatemala !), wonderful fabric , sleek fit, pockets that stay flat till you use them and hold a phone perfectly, and more !
I get so many compliments and love sharing the story of the pattern, product, and company. Especially great on a hot day as they are cooling when wet but perfect in the water. Just like a second skin!

If I were to change anything about all the leggings - it would be to taper the waist band a bit more despite my having a mature waistline.

5'7", 130 lb, S bottoms, xs/s tops, 65 yoa

Wowza!

Great quality! Love that I’m giving back with my purchases! Waist sits a little low for those of us on the plus side. Wind resistance is awesome when traveling by PWC. Overall quality is excellent. My only suggestion is to find a true fit for plus sizes.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY one of the ocean's largest predators,THE tiger SHARK (galeocerdo cuvier)

Shark Research and Conservation Program Logo10% of profits from your purchase will go directly toward the Shark Research and Conservation (SRC) Program at the University of Miami,helping to fund important research focused on the ecology, movement and conservation of tiger sharks as well as other local shark species. In addition to research, the SRC program is actively aimed at student education and community outreach through extensive citizen science and internship programs.

Tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier) are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Near Threatened”, and thus, research, education and outreach is essential to ensuring healthy populations. As one of the ocean’s largest predators, these critical species sit at the top of the food chain, helping to regulate the delicate balance of populations of those beneath in the ecosystem. Decreased populations can result in trophic cascades, impacting the abundance and behavior of other species lower on the food chain. Multiple research methods have shown that some species of sharks have declined in population by 90% or more during the last several decades in areas where they were formerly abundant. These declines are due to direct targeting in commercial fisheries, mostly for their fins and sometimes meat. Additionally, sharks are often caught unintentionally as bycatch in many other fisheries, caught and killed in some recreational fisheries (unlike catch and release), and may also be impacted by humans more indirectly through threats like habitat loss, pollution, and human-driven declines in the fish species sharks rely on for food.

Sharks have been in the ocean for more than 450 million years. Granted, they’ve evolved a bit since then, but they’ve survived five major extinction events! Help us to celebrate these amazing animals, support research to inform management of their populations, and use your gear as a conversation piece to educate others.

Learn more about some of the research conducted by the Shark Research and Conservation Program. This Waterlust video explains the findings of a paper published in the scientific journal of Diversity and Distributions entitled "Use of marine protected areas and exclusive economic zones in the subtropical western North Atlantic Ocean by large highly mobile sharks."

The study investigated the core home habitat use of bull, great hammerhead and tiger sharks tagged in waters off south Florida and the northern Bahamas to understand if these highly mobile shark species might benefit from spatial protection, such as marine protected areas (MPAs).
