Amazing fabric, poor plus size design

The fabric quality completely blew me out of the water! It's soft, thick, supportive and I don't have to worry about underboob sweat in my Houston summer weather (I sweat less in this too and any sweat evaporates quickly).

The biggest problem is that the design pattern doesn't seem to have adjusted for plus size proportions. The straps were crazy long and there was not enough fabric in the front panel. I can wear the piece as a bra but absolutely not on its own, which is a real shame.

Curvy Girl Review

This was a little out of my budget, but I loved it (and the good cause it supports) enough to splurge. Because it’s reversible, you basically get two tops for the price of one. I bought this top with the matching leggings, and then also bought the Spotted Eagle Ray leggings. The maroon on the reversible side of this top matches the Spotted Eagle Ray leggings perfectly.

I am 5’4” 200 lbs and I wear a 36DD bra. I bought the L/XL top. It fits fine when I’m just standing still, but anytime I bend or move, the top rolls up the whole way around because of my belly. It’s annoying and then I’m left tugging on it, only for it to roll up again a minute later. I “fixed” it by folding the bottom of it up inside so it’s more the length of a normal sports bra. So far, that’s been a good solution for me, and there’s still plenty of coverage overall since the leggings are very high rise. My advice to the creators would be to offer this in a shorter length as well, or make tanks/tees in solid colors that coordinate with the leggings.

Hi Erica - thanks so much for taking the time to provide your feedback! We'll definitely take all of that into consideration and appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

Great quality but need to be made in a smaller size

These tops are great quality and the material is very soft. I bought the XS/S as I'm a size 32B, but it feels a little loose. I think it will be fine as a bikini top but it definitely isn't tight enough to wear as a sports bra for running or other sports. It would be great if Waterlust could introduce a new, smaller size for those who want a tighter fit.

Environmental Impact
Size Guide

10% of profits donated to REEF

Known for their show stopping appearance, venomous spines, and voracious appetites, invasive Indo-Pacific lionfish (Pterois volitans & Pterois miles) are the first non-native marine fish to become established in the Atlantic. Lionfish pose a significant threat to local marine ecosystems due to widespread predation of native species, prolific reproduction, and lack of controlling predators.

    1. Seamless, reversible design for versatility and comfort
    2. Mid level support- wear for diving, yoga, swimming, lifting, surfing, etc.
    3. Fibers mechanically engineered for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability
    4. Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery for shape retention in and out of the water
    5. 100% chlorine, sun, saltwater and sunscreen resistant
    6. UPF 50+ sun protection (max rating achievable)
    7. Tear away tag
  • 88% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester), 12% spandex, giving post-consumer plastic bottles a positive future.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY the invasive lionfish (Pterois volitans & Pterois miles)

The issue


Lionfish in their native range, from the South Pacific to the Red Sea, are an important part of the coral reef ecosystem and population numbers are kept in check through natural processes.

However, they are non-native to the Atlantic ocean and have become established as a harmful invasive species in this region, posing a significant threat to local marine ecosystems due to widespread predation on native species, prolific reproduction, and lack of controlling predators. Humans must intervene to reduce their impact in the invaded waters, and our Invasive Lionfish collection exists to promote action and awareness on this issue.

Reported Lionfish Sightings 1985 - January 8, 2020


Beginning in the 1980's, two visually identical species of lionfish (Pterois miles and Pterois volitans) were introduced into the Atlantic via the US aquarium trade and have become the first non-native marine fish to become established in the Atlantic. Over the past decade, invasive lionfish densities in these non-native areas have exploded, as they have been documented along the entire US East Coast from Florida through Massachusetts, east to Bermuda and south throughout the Caribbean. The expansion has been extremely rapid and exponential in scope.

 


Reef Environmental Education Foundation REEF Logo

Reef Environmental Education Foundation (REEF)’s Invasive Species Program has been at the forefront of the lionfish invasion since the arrival of the species in Florida in 2006, and 10% of profits from your purchase goes to this program. REEF’s efforts have included laying the groundwork for developing early detection and rapid response plans to mitigate the impacts, training resource managers and dive operators in effective collecting techniques, and conducting innovative research to better understand what has made Indo-Pacific lionfish the perfect invader.

REEF was founded in 1990 out of growing concern about the health of the marine environment, and the desire to provide the public ways to contribute to the understanding and protection of marine populations. Visit www.REEF.org to learn more.
