Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

Designed for diving, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, kiting, winging... you get the idea. If the ocean is your happy place but you recognize the importance of skin protection, these suits are for you! Versatile too - wear it alone or as a base layer to help you easily slip in and out of your wetsuit on those colder days.

Intimidating stripes cover one of the ocean’s largest apex predators. Sitting atop the marine food pyramid, tiger sharks play a significant role in balancing the tropical and temperate water ecosystem, which is why we celebrate their beauty and support research that informs the 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.”

I'm 5'10" and 180lb and got an M. If was nice and skin tight but still allowed for full movement. I'm excited to use it to go diving in the Caribbean.

Feels and looks great

I'm super late reviewing this as I bought it in 2023, but since then I've worn it a handful of times to the beach and public pool. It fits great (I'm 5'4" and bought a Small/Strong), and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. One thing to note, and this may just be a me thing as I get cold easily, but since this isn't a wetsuit and isn't meant to be insulating I do find that after I've gotten wet I get extremely cold once I'm out of the water. I bought this mostly to hide my tattoos from the sun so this isn't a big deal, but ideally you'd want to use this for swimming when it's very hot out or if you have something dry to change into immediately after. Overall, I love it!

Another beautiful suit that fits tall women with long legs so well!

This is my second sunsuit — the first was the whale shark print. The suit is so beautiful, so comfortable, and I have to mention again how well it fits women with long legs. My inseam is about 35”, and the legs of the suit hit me just above my ankle.

I’m 5’10”, about 180lbs with measurements of 35-31-42. I ordered a suit in the mighty size.

I’m a tiger shark!

I absolutely love my full tiger shark suit. I followed the measurements and it fits perfectly. If you are busty, you might want to size up. The compression and “hold in” amount is perfect!

Love the color and the fit! I am a scuba diving instructor and this really helps me to get my wetsuit on and off constantly. I am also really needing the sun protection it provides. Love this
