No padding

The top was very cute and well made, however very compressive and there was no padding. I was super bummed, as the top was adorable. If they add padding to the bust I would repurchase.

32G bra size

A little bit about me. I'm 5 ft 4.5in tall and weigh 150 lbs. Full bust 38in, under bust 31in. I make my own bras because it is very hard to find one that fits me. I got a size M. I was thinking about getting the S to fit my rib cage better but looking at the fit model I decided to go one size up. Because of my small band and large cup size it's often hard to find styles that fit. I think this top does a pretty good job. I'm not expecting a lot of support. The band around the rib cage is loose but it provides more coverage up top. I gave this top four stars because I haven't warn it out in the field yet so I don't know how they perform.

Perfect!

I do a lot of hiking and wear a lot of sports bras. Most of the time my ribs hurt after doing a day hike or backpacking overnight because I prefer to wear a supportive bra. Not only is this bra super comfortable and supportive and wicks away moisture, but it is so cute! The pattern matches exactly that of the eagle ray! The cut is great too since it can be worn as a top and not feel like I'm wearing just a bra. I also love how it can go in the washer and dryer without pilling or bleeding

I love my top!

I just received the spotted eagle ray reversible top in the mail, and I absolutely love it. It fits well, it's comfortable, and the material is perfect for any outdoor activity like running, swimming, etc. Based on my experience, if you're in between sizes definitely choose the smaller size. I'm in between a 34/36B and the XS/S top fits me perfectly. I love that the top is reversible, I love that it's made out of recycled materials, and I love the donation aspect! I will definitely be recommending Waterlust to my friends.

Spotted Eagle Ray Reversible Top

Environmental Impact
Size Guide

10% of profits donated to Mote Marine Laboratory

Known for their beautiful and unique spot patterns, spotted eagle rays fill key roles in the marine ecosystem. As both predators and prey, they eat animals such as clams and conchs, while also being eaten by large sharks. Worldwide, more than one-quarter of marine rays are threatened with extinction from targeted fisheries, bycatch and loss of habitat.

    1. Seamless, reversible design for versatility and comfort
    2. Mid level support- wear for diving, yoga, swimming, lifting, surfing, etc.
    3. Fibers mechanically engineered for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability
    4. Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery for shape retention in and out of the water
    5. 100% chlorine, sun, saltwater and sunscreen resistant
    6. UPF 50+ sun protection (max rating achievable)
    7. Tear away tag
  • 88% Repreve® RPET (recycled polyester made from post-consumer plastic bottles), 12% spandex

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY the spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari)

Mote Marine Lab Logo10% of profits from your purchase will go directly toward the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium's Sharks & Rays Conservation Research Program, to study the conservation, ecology and movement patterns of spotted eagle rays in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea. Founded by Eugenie Clark in 1955 , the program has been a leader in advancing the causes of shark and ray conservation worldwide. In 2009, Mote researchers initiated their conservation research project on the life history, reproduction, and population status of the spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari), a protected species in Florida but vulnerable in the rest of its range.

It is illegal to fish for or kill this beautiful and charismatic ray in Florida waters, however they are not protected under federal laws and international protections are limited as well. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an organization that establishes the conservation status of species worldwide, lists them as near-threatened with a decreasing population trend.

In some countries, spotted eagle rays are harvested as food and are caught as bycatch (unintentional catch in commercial fisheries that target other species). Spotted eagle rays also face a variety of threats from habitat loss, harmful algal blooms and entanglement in fishing gear. These threats, combined with their extremely low reproductive rate, make these rays vulnerable to population declines. To help create better conservation management plans for this species, Mote and other research institutions are defining the distribution, migration, feeding habits, growth rates and reproductive biology of spotted eagle rays.

Mote biologists have sampled, tagged and released hundreds of spotted eagle rays off the Southwest Florida coast to gain a better understanding of their biology, population structure and migratory patterns in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Spotted Eagle Ray Project goals are two-fold:

  1. In collaboration with project partners, Mote biologists are collecting data to characterize the population structure, biology and ecology of this ray in the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean and Western Atlantic.
  2. Mote biologists are engaging with community and citizen scientists to “rays” public awareness, enhance conservation capacity and improve educational outreach about spotted eagle rays and other marine rays around the world.
