Great fit and look

I am 5"6 and 150lbs athletic build (size 36 C) and I purchased the Mighty size and it is a great fit. Snug and supportive but not too tight for me. I really love the pattern and the smoothness of the material.

Love it

Comfy, opaque, not terribly supportive for a DDD chest, but it'll be fine for under a wetsuit. I did have to size up from what the chart said I should wear, but once I did, I love it. I'm thrilled Waterlust has realized larger chested women wanted tops to match our leggings.

Great product

To be honest, I took a chance and ordered the smaller of the sizes I was in between. It was the wrong choice, so if in doubt, size up.

However, despite my mistake, it is an amazing top. Very comfortable fabric once I got it squeezed on. The Whale Shark pattern is true to advertisement. I can't say anything bad about the actual product or company. I even bought another top (different cause, because they all need love) in the next larger size because I was so impressed with this one that I didn't want to buy from another company.

So versatile

I love this top! I wear it all the time as a bra, a crop top, and a swim top. It holds everything in without feeling too compressive and is comfortable to wear all day. The construction is really durable and I love that it's reversible. The versatility makes it a perfect travel piece. I'm 5'0" 115lbs with bra size 34B/C and went with XS/S - it fits great.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE LARGEST FISH IN THE SEA,THE WHALE SHARK (RHINCODON TYPUS)

Marine Megafauna Foundation LogoWhale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within. Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance.

Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong. The Marine Megafauna Foundation is one group that is helping to shed light on the population structure, migratory patterns and the conservation requirements of these threatened sharks. Created in 2009, they aim to research, protect and conserve the large populations of marine megafauna (large marine species) found along the Mozambican coastline. Almost all whale sharks encountered by divers are juveniles and most are males. Where the school-bus-sized mature sharks swim, what they eat and where the females give birth has long been a mystery, however their team is now very close to making these discoveries. 10% of profits from your purchase will go to the Marine Megafauna Foundation for satellite tags that are needed to track the movements of these large female whale sharks.
