Love these!

Perfect for spending time in the ocean!

I ordered this top to wear while diving & I can already say from my 2 dives this weekend that it works great! The pattern is so cool too, I got lots of compliments when I finally took off my wet suit after the dive. This top was super comfy to wear for long periods of time and it was perfectly functional during all of the activity. Highly recommend!

Beautiful and comfortable!

I got this as a sports bra that I could potentially use as a bikini top as well. I haven’t ran or swam in it yet but I have walked in it and it is very comfortable and supportive for light exercise at least! I have a larger chest and got the small option which I am glad I did. It offers a really nice lift and support without being too tight. The only downside is that I find the bottom rolls up sometimes. I wish it didn’t do that- and I’m hoping it won’t in the water- but it’s still pretty awesome! I love that it’s reversible ( although the black side is a smidge see through when you’re chilly if ya know what I mean) over all I really like it!! It looks amazing paired with their leggings! Thanks!

Great Versatile Sportbra

As for sports bras, I am quite picky. This sportbra not only looks great, but it fits great and functions great! I sized down my typical size (L --> M) and am much happier with the fit. It is tight enough to support running and high energy workouts, but not constricting where I want to get out of it asap. I think sizing down is key to functionality of this one. I have one WL Sportbra in Legendary size and use it mostly for around-the-house wear, as it is too loose for in-water activities or exercise. The material is thick and doesn't dry as quick as the other WL gear, but I wouldn't change that factor because the Sportsbra is reversible.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY The sassy sea snail

Abalone is the common name for a variety of marine snails that are found throughout the world’s oceans. Sought after for their meat and their beautiful shells, populations have declined rapidly and some species are now critically endangered. Our relationship with abalone illustrates the challenges of overexploitation of the marine environment. Until the 1980’s, it was widely thought that abalone populations were resilient and could effectively rebound from harvesting activities. Unfortunately, that has not proven to be true.

Abalone are “broadcast spawners,” meaning that two individuals must be within three feet of one another to sexually reproduce. This type of reproduction makes population recovery very challenging, driving the need for humans to intervene. Marine biologist Nancy Caruso is doing just that, and founded Get Inspired, a non-profit organization that specializes in marine conservation & education.

Besides physically growing juvenile abalone along California’s coast and populating them back into the coastal kelp forest marine habitat, Nancy recognizes that protecting the ocean in the future requires educating children today. That is why she has launched a 10 year initiative to grow 100,000 abalone in classrooms across the golden state and restore them along the southern California coast, inspiring and utilizing the help of the next generation of scientists along the way. 10% of profits from your purchase will be donated to this restoration effort.

Photos used to create this print were taken by Alyssa Frederick, a PhD researcher, science advocate and communicator. Her PhD research focuses on how disease and temperature stress affect abalone.
