Designed for diving, snorkeling, swimming, surfing, kiting, winging... you get the idea. If the ocean is your happy place but you recognize the importance of skin protection, these suits are for you! Versatile too - wear it alone or as a base layer to help you easily slip in and out of your wetsuit on those colder days.

White sandy beaches may take the spotlight, but Florida is home to 1,000 freshwater springs, the highest density in the world. A birds-eye view of the forest often reveals a magnificent pool of freshwater emerging from the aquifer below. Jump in and you may experience the coveted feeling of flight as you soar in the air-clear water.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the Floridan Aquifer and springs

Florida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Gorgeous as always!!

If it helps anyone: if you have the sun suits and are trying a full body suit, I recommend using one size smaller. At least in my experience, in sun suits I’m S and for full suits I’m XS. (but hey, all bodies are different!)

So cute and comfy!

This suit is so amazing! Sizing was perfect based on the real-world models that are used. Very comfortable and once wet kept us nice and cool in the hot mexico sun. Customer service is responsive and so helpful!

I’m a little old lady surfer, spent my life in the sun and water. I don’t dare go to a dermatologist - they’ll skin me alive! This suit is fabulous. Full protection because I’m staying in the sun and water for as long as I can!
I live in close proximity to many of our amazing springs in Florida. Thank you for supporting the efforts to preserve and protect them.
