Kelly Marquart (Clarksville, MD, US)
defective

I received these as a much wanted gift. Unfortunately they came with the stitching coming undone. Also, while the shorts fit, they give the absolute worst camel toe. I am trying to get an exchange for a larger size (to hopefully correct the fit issue) without a defect, but it looks like I have to return the shorts and then repurchase which is super frustrating. I was assuming that since they are defective the process would have been quick and smooth. I am hoping that Waterlust will make this issue right and I can update my review.

Hi Kelly - SO sorry to hear you received a defective pair!! As you know via our emails, we're happy to help and hope we're resolving this for you to your satisfaction.

Favorite pattern so far

I love these shorts and would definitely suggest them to a friend. Only thing is, I'd go up one size.

Love them!

They fit beautifully--super smooth and soft fabric. Love the pockets. Will definitely be getting another pair.

Perfect under a wetsuit!

I bought the shorts, top and even the headband in the parrotfish pattern. I am 5’2, 145lbs and ordered the large. They fit very well. I needed something I could wear under a wetsuit, something I could also wear under an outfit and still be modest when I took off the outfit and put on the wetsuit on the dive boat. This is perfect! I would be more comfortable with a longer short, but it wasn’t available when I ordered. The headband was tight enough to keep my hair out of my face while diving. I highly recommend this set!

Ran a 1/2 marathon in them and they were perfect! Stayed put so no chafing and pockets were perfect for a water bottle and phone.

The coral reef ecosystems that cover our globe provide essential food and habitat to over 25% of all marine life. The parrotfish is a common animal found among these ecosystems and are a crucial keystone species, responsible for cleaning the corals from harmful algae. The abundance of parrotfish can be related directly to the health of our coral reef ecosystems.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY the Spotted Parrotfish (cetoscarus ocellatus)

While parrotfish come in many amazing colors and patterns, this print is inspired by a male, terminal phase spotted parrotfish, native to the Indo-Pacific. 10% of profits from any purchase of Parrotfish Protection gear will be donated to Reef Relief to improve and protect our coral reef ecosystem through education, advocacy, and grassroots community efforts.

Considered the most effective reef grazer, Parrotfish serve an important function in maintaining the health of coral reefs. In fact, a 2014 IUCN report surveyed the health of Caribbean coral reefs from 1970-2012 and found that one of the most impactful actions we can take to restore the health of coral reef habitat is to protect parrotfish! And if that isn’t reason enough to love these bright and beautiful fish, an individual poops up to 200 lbs of sand a year, a critical source of sediment for beaches! For example, in Vakkaru Island in the Maldives, a 2015 study found that over 85% of their beach sand had been produced by parrotfish!
