Beautiful but hard to reach the zipper

OMG this is gorgeous and fabulous quality.
The tab (is that what it's called?) is quite short, and it looks as though the suit could outlive it but it's easy to create a workaround for both issues.
I've wanted one of these for ages and currently the exchange rate is more in my favour so I literally took the plunge.

Whale shark sun suit

Love this and love what the company stands for! Definitely get a lot of compliments and questions about where I got it from. It fits very well, the only problem I have is that sometimes the back zipper pulls my hair. Otherwise, it's fantastic.

LOVE this suit!

So flattering, and you can feel how well made it is. I am long bodied and was pleased that it actually was long enough for me without the dreaded camel toe. Very flattering cut, and works great under a wetsuit. Can't wait for warmer weather to show it off without the wetsuit!

The fit is fantastic! I love the design and it feels like a second skin. Looking forward to time in the water.

The best suit

OMG, I love the way my suit feels and fits. I also ordered leggings and they have deep pockets for phones etc. I’ll be honest, this company’s mission is the real reason I buy from them - their exceptional products is the icing. I have purchased items for family members and now they are fans too. Thank you Waterlust!

Whale shark love! <3

I've never really owned a long-sleeve one-piece but this looks great and also feels super soft and comfy! I would definitely recommend purchasing. It feels great on my body, looks amazing, and also supports a great cause! I love being able to advocate for whale sharks and support their conservation while also looking good. ;)

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

Whale shark printed sun suit front, side and back view with a whale shark in the background

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.
