Sitting atop the marine food pyramid, tiger sharks play a significant roll in balancing the tropical and temperate water ecosystem, which is why we celebrate their beauty and support research that informs management of their population.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier)

Tiger sharks 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.

"We are so proud of our collaboration with Waterlust. Not only does their support help enable our shark conservation research, but the apparel itself is a walking billboard for marine conservation. I love it when people on the street stop to ask me about my tiger shark board shorts. It's an opportunity to start a conversation about the wonders and perils faced by sharks and how the average person can help make a difference.”

Good Sun Suit

Love the tiger shark pattern and material. The fit is pretty good, however, I would have preferred that the leg be cut higher. The picture is accurate though, so that is on me for just not realizing it until it was on my body.

The BEST

I will preface this by saying I am not a swimmer by nature. I hate the sun, I hate the sand touching me, I hate getting my belly cold when I get in. I got this suit mostly because I wanted something to protect my arms from the sun during kayaking.

I think this swimsuit has solved a solid 90% of my problems with swimming. No more cold belly! No more sticky sunscreen all over my chest and arms! The sand can only get on my legs now, and honestly that's tolerable! Beyond that, it's actually COMFORTABLE unlike most swimwear and it is so CUTE! I may actually voluntarily get in the water this summer, and it is a direct result of having purchased this suit.

20/10, would recommend.
For reference, I'm 5'4, 120 lbs, and purchased a small.

A one-piece I can actually wear!

I can never wear one pieces due to my long torso. I reached out to customer with an inquiry about sizing and length, and Laura was super helpful and informative. Originally I ordered the whale shark (because many prints were out of stock) and it fit well, but I found the print to be unflattering. Customer service helped me with exchanging for a different print (tiger shark), and I love it…very flattering!!! Due to my torso length, it’s slightly cheeky on me, but most bottoms seem cut that way anymore, so it doesn’t bother me. I haven’t used it in the water yet, so that the only reason I haven’t given 5 stars.
