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!

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 of 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. 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!

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!

MIRIAM Elizabeth Carmack (Kaneohe, HI, US)
Design suggestion for women


Please consider adding darts to the chest area for female suits, as the material is stretching too tightly around the breasts and this will cause strain on the zipper... most likely causing longterm risk of tearing in that region.

Besides the tear risk, it is uncomfortable having my chest squeezed this tightly.

Please look ast SlipIns.com for more comfortable suit designs as it applies to the Appendages (thumb holes and heel holes).

Besides that I really love how thick your fabric is, and the Seams feel more sturdy than SlipIns seams.

EG (Charlotte, NC, US)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my suit. The colors are vibrant underwater and it's super comfy. Quality is great as well, it survived 7 days of 4 dives per day without a problem. Highly recommend!

Ready to dive!

I just got my dive certification this April in preparation for a trip to the BVIs in July. This was my first “Congratulations” gift to myself. I’m so excited to wear this and really standout 😊

Kyla Bear (Morrilton, AR, US)
It’s perfect

I have looked all over for a plus size dive skin/sun skin that was not just black. I wanted bright colors so I could been seen in the water. Most women’s rash guards are 2 pieces and don’t stay where you want them. I thought the price was steep but I finally caved and I am so glad I did. I am an apple shape with a 50” waist and the 3x is a perfect snug fit. The material is much thicker than your standard swimsuit and it feels amazing on. I cannot wait to get to enjoy the sun again.

Cool suit I’ll use for scuba diving

I had hoped to use this suit for hanging out on the beach but I find the material too heavy and too warm for that purpose so I will use it for scuba diving in warmer waters. The XL fit well (I am 5’10” and 170 lbs). The quality is good and I’m pleased.

Carrie Skiles (Denver, CO, US)
3 XL fit perfectly

Being a full size active swimmer at 67 yo.
The fit,feel and quality is a GOLD standard.
I have shared with a beach full of people and they
are excited to research your offering.
Thank you for falling into my lap of luxury.
