Great as expected!

I honestly love this company and feel good about buying from them knowing they support causes that are important to me. I’ve purchased from them in the past, however this was my first sun suit. I love it! It fits me great. I’m 5’5” and about 175lbs and got a large, or legendary. I can’t wait to use it under my wetsuit for my local dive shop’s underwater pumpkin carving event!

I LOVE IT!

I love my parrotfish suit so much. It looks wonderful on, it's incredibly fun, and it's a great cause/company. My only regret is that I can't go swim with the actual parrotfish right now and have to settle for autumnal lakes. I also got a matching headband and can't wait to get the leggings!

Cuuuute

Lovvvve this new sunsuit, it is perfect! I bought a medium (5’4, 36d, 138 lbs) and it fit just right with or without bikini underneath. Will be buying more!

Living my parrotfish dreams!

I absolutely am obsessed with my new parrotfish sunsuit. I have waited for this since the print debuted! I am on the larger size 36DDD size 12/14pants and I wear XL in Waterlust leggings/shorts. I used to buy L/XL tops but I am going to start sizing down in the bra tops. I purchased an XL in the sunsuit and it fits just right. The pattern placement is great, I love how the sleeves are long enough to protect the backs of my hands, and the rear coverage is perfect for me (no picking wedgies!). It is better than I had hoped for. I own the entire collection and I am so happy with my Waterlust wardrobe.

Feel like a mermaid

Love all my waterlust gear, but this print is my favorite and own almost everything (just missing the shorts and scrunchies). I use these swimming, diving, and just to lounge in! They are so versatile.

The coral reef ecosystems that cover our globe provide essential food and habitat to over 25% of all marine life. The parrotfish is a common animal found among these ecosystems and are a crucial keystone species, responsible for cleaning the corals from harmful algae. The abundance of parrotfish can be related directly to the health of our coral reef ecosystems.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY the Spotted Parrotfish (cetoscarus ocellatus)

While parrotfish come in many amazing colors and patterns, this print is inspired by a male, terminal phase spotted parrotfish, native to the Indo-Pacific. 10% of profits from any purchase of Parrotfish Protection gear will be donated to Reef Relief to improve and protect our coral reef ecosystem through education, advocacy, and grassroots community efforts.

Considered the most effective reef grazer, Parrotfish serve an important function in maintaining the health of coral reefs. In fact, a 2014 IUCN report surveyed the health of Caribbean coral reefs from 1970-2012 and found that one of the most impactful actions we can take to restore the health of coral reef habitat is to protect parrotfish! And if that isn’t reason enough to love these bright and beautiful fish, an individual poops up to 200 lbs of sand a year, a critical source of sediment for beaches! For example, in Vakkaru Island in the Maldives, a 2015 study found that over 85% of their beach sand had been produced by parrotfish!
