Advocate Apparel Inspired by THE ATLANTIC SPOTTED DOLPHIN (STENELLA FRONTALIS)

Atlantic spotted dolphin (Stenella frontalis), are the more frequently seen of two different species of spotted dolphins found in the Abacos; the other species is the pan-tropical spotted dolphin (Stenella attenuata). Spotted dolphins are not born with spots, but actually accumulate them as they mature, becoming quite mottled-looking as adults. Hence, young spotted dolphins are often confused with bottlenose dolphins, and sometimes the two species will interact, which adds to the confusion. Spotted dolphins have a more slender snout, and although they can almost reach the same length as bottlenose dolphins, they have a smaller girth and thus body weight.

Atlantic spotted dolphins are a year-round resident species in the Abacos. Individuals photo-identified 20 years ago can still be seen ranging along the eastern and southwestern coasts of Abaco. They are commonly seen in groups of 20-50 dolphins in the oceanic waters where they feed on flying fish and squid, and rarely venture on to the bank. However, in the northwestern part of Little Bahama Bank this species can regularly be found along the western edge of the banks during the daytime where they come to rest and socialize.

Pattern and Design is perfect

I am 5'4 and 127 pounds. The Suit it too long - There is extra material length wise. Because of this the suit moves up the neck too far and starts to put pressure on the throat while piling fabric in the arm pit. I would love it if Waterlust made a short or petite version of your full body suits that can't be trimmed. Until then I am bunching up the extra fabric in the middle. Have not tried in the water yet - hopefully this will work out because I love the design, fabric, and conservation mission of the suit.

Absolutely Perfect!

My daughter is over the moon with her new swimsuit. Whoever designed this did an amazing job. I see more suits being ordered. Soon.

Love it!

Super comfy, fits great. I previously bought another suit like this from a different brand and at 5'6, it was too short on me. This fits perfectly. I bought it for scuba diving and have not tried it out in the water yet, but so far I am happy with it.
