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.

I revise my previous review

After being disappointed with my first purchase and the fit of the leggings, Waterlust went above and beyond to make it work. Fabulous customer service from this company.

Stephanie (Beaverton, OR, US)
Sad about the fit

I was excited to receive my first pair of Waterlust leggings. Unfortunately, the gusset seam is sewn unevenly and there is a bit of empty fabric that hangs down unattractively. These were discontinued and ineligible for an exchange. My email wasn’t responded to. I guess I will wear them as pajamas. Will not reorder from Waterlust.

Hi Stephanie,

I am sorry to hear that you did not receive our emails! We responded to both inquiry emails you sent us regarding the fit of your leggings. Sometimes our emails can get lost in spam folders, sadly. We would still love a chance to make this right! If you would like, you can email me directly at camilla@waterlust.com so that we can resolve this issue and get you in gear that you feel comfortable and confident in!

Absolutely love it. My second pair of leggings and I'm definitely getting more.

Much thicker than I expected, but that's not a bad thing! Colors are incredible - very bright and beautiful. Deep pockets are great for holding a large phone while walking; deep enough to keep it secure even when running.

Emily Allison (Somerville, MA, US)
Super long! But super cute and comfy

Haven't had to really wear them yet; bought them for winter disc golf/hiking. Tried them on when they arrived and seem to fit comfortably without cutting in too hard in the waist area. Very long. I am 5'3" about 125 lbs and the medium is perfect.
