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.

Kellen (Escondido, CA, US)
Too Thick

These are a beautiful print and nice fit but way too thick for me. I returned them. I would try this brand again if they come out with a thinner option.

Kristine S (Silver Spring, MD, US)

Love love love! I bought dive leggings and reversible tops and they are amazing. Great fabric, great fit! I really appreciated the pictures of the different models to help decide which size to buy. I won't be in the water until end of September but I am so excited to wear these diving. Thank you Waterlust!

Adrian A Smith (Clearwater, FL, US)

These leggings feel incredible and fit perfectly! And they have POCKETS! I am a diver and also a yogi so I can get multi uses from these. I am 5’ 7” 130 lbs and the Medium size is perfect!

Joy Martin (New York, NY, US)
Beautiful quality but too small.

Absolutely beautiful product with fabulous quality. However, based on reviews I ordered mediums. I am 5’5” but the leggings are too tight on lower abdomen. The rest of the fit is great! I will return them and get large.

Kate P. (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Totally amazing

I waited far to long to try these out, (top and leggings as an outfit), now I don't know what I did without them! They fit great and were perfect for going under my scuba wetsuit and for kayaking and freediving. Their intended use is an extra layer under my wetsuit in the winter for California scuba diving, warm water freediving exposure protection that doesn't inhibit deep abdominal breathing, and then just water sports in general. The material is nice and thick, stitching seems sturdy. They definitely look like they will hold up better than the other leggings I've tried, although what really convinced me is the recycled material they're made of.

Held up to snorkeling, canoeing and biking

Love these. They held up during all my activities in Belize. Warning: They are not squat-proof (they’re not intended to be), so you’ll need to wear something under them. I’m 5’5”, 155 lbs, and have a 33 inch waist. I originally ordered a L but exchanged for an XL. I could have worn the Ls, and probably should have becaus the XLs got a little loose in the water, but the Ls were tighter than I wanted them to be.
