Gorgeous colours and very flattering!

I just love the quality of the waterlust clothing. This is no exception. The material feels soft, good quality and has great colour and pattern details. The cut and shape is very flattering even if you have a little extra ‘lockdown weight’.
I haven’t used it in the water but their leggings do well in sea water and dry really quickly so can’t wait to take this one out surfing soon (in Hawaii, NorCal waters are too cold).

I LOVE THIS SUIT!

This turtle sun suit was exactly what I was looking for! It’s a very beautiful and well made suit that fits me perfectly. I’m 5’6 and about 127 lbs and I ordered the size small and it looks fantastic! Additionally, the suit is thick, not see through, and very durable for scuba diving, boating, and all your water fun activities.

Sun suits for the win!!!

Ohhh my goodness!! I ABSOLUTELY love this product! I teach swim lessons and it has very quickly become a skin saver! I don't have to worry about sun protection or kids trying to pinch my skin as their finger slip off the suit! I am such a fan of these sunsuits!! I own three! The number of compliments that I get about them is astounding, paired with a mini lecture from me about all the awesome work this company does! I love that this allows me to be an educator for the ocean too!

My Favorite Suit

I really like this sunsuit and it has quickly become my favorite. The colors/design of the turtle shell are vibrant and realistic. The material is strong and provides great protection. The thumb holes came in so handy when putting on a wetsuit over the sunsuit or when putting on gloves. Where this suit can improve is a design with a little more rear end coverage. Also, some of the stitching on the arms where the thumb hole is located has started to come apart.

Dr. Fuentes with loggerhead turtle

A solitary species that rarely interacts with others outside of mating rituals, sea turtles struggle to survive from the day they hatch out of their egg. Sea turtle mortality rates are depressingly high, about 99% of juveniles will meet their demise before reaching sexual maturity. Dr. Mariana Fuentes is a marine conservation biologist at Florida State University and focuses her research on developing science-based solutions for the conservation and management of sea turtles. Her research group integrates field-based ecology with systematic conservation planning, decision theory approaches, climate modeling and applied qualitative and geographic spatial analysis to answer a series of ecological and management topics related to sea turtles.

10% of profits from your purchase will be donated to theFSU Marine Turtle Research, Ecology and Conservation Group, led by Dr. Mariana Fuentes, and will be used to fund two projects. The first initiative is to assess the effects that the recreational bay scallop fishery has on sea turtles in the Big Bend of Florida. Researchers will collect biological, ecological and spatial data on sea turtles in the region and use it to inform management practices to better protect these endangered species. The second is to increase night monitoring of St. George Island, Florida and to identify threats to turtles nesting there. The information gained will aid in identifying critical habitats and provide important information to better understand the size, nesting behaviors, and movements of sea turtles in the region.
