ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE Floridan Aquifer

Alachua Conservation Trust LogoFlorida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Thankfully there are many passionate citizens and non-profit organizations that advocate for our springs, work to protect them, and raise awareness about their unique beauty as well as their decline. One of these groups is the Alachua Conservation Trust, a non-profit regional land trust created to address the need of protecting critical natural lands from development and degradation in North Central Florida. 10% of profits from our springs prints go their work to conserve, restore and celebrate this important resource.

I love love love it

I was looking for water friendly clothing for a while and then I found this unique reversible top with matching leggings. This top is very cute and flattering. It is soft on the skin and has a nice stretch. It is a quality garment that fits well. Last, this purchase helps a company with a cause that I believe in.

Secure without smothering

I often find that sports bras and similar items either have so little support that I have to hold onto myself while running (or mowing, or anything else) or they tend to give me terrible neck and/or back pain if I wear them for more than an hour. I wore this top ALL DAY. I put it on when I got up and took it off just before bed. I had no headache, no discomfort, and all the support I could hope for. Is it magic? Maybe.
It also looks pretty fly.

I love my new top from Waterlust! It fits perfectly, it’s very comfortable, and drys quickly! I bought the XS, I’m a 32B and the fit is great! Also, I love that it is reversible.

I love the colors! Both sides are so pretty. And the fabric is super comfy and strong. But I think these will work much better for folks whose over-bust measurement isn't too different from their band/underboob measurement. Mine are quite different, so while my boobs are squished in good, I have a decent-sized gap of about 2 cm between my skin and the band underneath. I'm gonna keep it anyway, because while it looks a little awkward, it'll still work. If it helps anyone, I'm a 32DD and I got the XS/S.

I bought the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH/MERMAID CAMO REVERSIBLE TOP and am in love!!! The top is so soft. I bought a medium (bra size is 36D), because that is what I usually wear in tops. It fits perfectly. I like that it doesn’t have padding personally and find that it provides great support. Definitely recommend!

I LOVE this top! I followed the size chart and apprehensively went with the XS/S - as a 32DD, normally any thing XS on the top is crazy talk - but it fit perfectly. Wouldn't be supportive enough to use as a sports bra but I've used it swimming and it was great. It's so hard to find tops like this that fit - if the cup size is okay, the band is too big - if the band fits, the cup size is impossibly small. Well done, as always, Waterlust! Excuse me while I go buy a million more of these...
